This is the 36 week picture. I thought I'd include it as well.

His movements are still fascinating but also getting uncomfortable. Apparently that's due to the lack of increase in amniotic fluid at this point, which was previously helping to cushion the blows. The little stinker seems to enjoy pushing on/kicking/punching my bladder and right side of my rib cage. But it's still fun to watch. Also for the past week or so I've been able to tell when he's hiccuping and THAT'S rather cute.
It turned out ok. Not SPECTACULAR but not bad. Also, we we're excited about getting it on DVD (which they usually do at 20 weeks) but I came home and put it in the computer and it doesn't seem to work. Awesome. Oh well.
3D profile. Kind of hard to see. His face occupies the left side of the picture and he's facing in the opposite direction of my hand that is holding the picture. The black area on the left side of the picture looks like a big hole in his head (...it's not). Once you figure it out, it's actually pretty cool. You can see his right eye (which appears to be closed), his nose, mouth and chin. It's a real baby!
Some have asked what we need, and the easiest way to know is to check out our registries! I've been doing my homework comparing prices web-wide and at local stores and tried to register accordingly.
Once at one of the websites, look for a link labeled "Baby registry" or "Gift registry". Then look for the option to "find a registry" and type in either Emily Tingey or Brett Tingey.
Target.com (I think registry is also accessible at any Target store)

So I only have 10 weeks to go!! WOW! The past couple months have actually gone by relatively fast, I think because I've been feeling pretty great. Not dealing with a whole lot of symptoms except for occasional heartburn, braxton hicks, and irritability. One fun/sometimes uncomfortable symptom is the frequent movement I feel from within. It never fails to be fascinating to me.
Our Doctor is allowing us to get another ultrasound at our 32 week check up (in 2 weeks) since some of their equipment wasn't working when we went in for the 20 week ultrasound (so we didn't get to record it OR get 3D pictures). YAY DOCTOR! She's great. So at 32 weeks, I'm sure the ultrasound pictures will be pretty neat. Hopefully.
I can't think of what else to write (and I'm being distracted by "Notting Hill" which I'm currently watching) so...until next time (hopefully there IS a next)!!
P.S.!! Out of curiosity, I wouldn't mind knowing who voted for which names so if you did/do vote, please comment and let me know which you chose/choose!! Just for fun. We pretty much have our minds made up but I'd still like to know. Thanks!

19-week ultrasound pics:
A foot! I hope its squishy and chubby.
Both pics above are profiles. Good luck figuring out where/what everything is.
We wanted to do something else with the wall where the Led Zeppelin beauty hangs (pictured behind me in the belly shots), so we bought a slab of white board from a home improvement store (I don't want to do any free advertising here :) ) and sprayed chalkboard paint on the wood side of the white board. Since the first little while, babies see in mainly black and white, I used white chalk. As his color vision increases, we'll do more colorful drawings.
The lovely crib (thanks mom and dad!) featuring the sage toile bedding I bought from Target.com on SALE. Also the green dresser behind, Brett and I bought from D.I. and painted and put handles on ourselves. Pretty proud.
Nursery with the lamps on (one of which should look familiar to my Liz-friend :) ).
Pregnancy symptoms my body has discarded by now:
Monday, August 30, 2010
I knew I'd be bad at blogging if I didn't keep up with it regularly. I'm doing this grudgingly but I really want to have record of my pregnancy.
Last week my family and I went to Lake Powell. Being in a swimming suit made me realize just how little my belly has grown. It was frustrating (I hope I don't sound like one of those people that say "oh I'm such a nerd" but really mean "oh I'm really smart." My complaints probably come across as "oh I don't have a belly" as in "oo look at me I'm skinny." Ew! Annoying! So REALLY I just yearn for the growth because I think the pregnancy will feel/seem more real to me once I've got a distinct pregnant tummy).
However it HAS gotten a little bigger over the past 4 days. It seems to have finally sprouted a little.
While in Lake Powell my brother and his girlfriend tried out wakeboarding for...sort of the first time. Apparently they had tried it once or twice before but it had been a while. So Brett and I were trying to coach them on how to do it. It was getting frustrating coaching them since it had been probably about 2 years since I had last tried wakeboarding and I was itching to try it just to make sure the tips I was giving them were accurate. After lots of coercion, Brett finally agreed to let me try it...as long as he was the one driving the boat, going slow. I wouldn't have done it if I thought I would crash but I knew I wouldn't. :) Cocky, I know.Anyhow, we all had a great time in Lake Powell (even though I am still slightly mood-swinging and ended up getting irritated with every single person there at one time or another. Got annoyed with Brett the least though, of course. ha).
Picture: Brett and I at Rainbow Bridge
So I haven't felt any movement yet.....I don't think....
Over the weekend my bosom buddy Lee-uhz (Liz) came up from California where she is currently living. The week prior, my cousin/other bosom buddy returned home from her summer in St. Petersburg. It was so good to have some feminine bonding. :)
They both say that I'm starting to look pregnant. Meh. To me, I think right now I just look like I've had way too many pints of Ben & Jerry's coffee heath bar crunch.
Ultrasound this Thursday!!! We will finally be able to stop calling it, it. SOOOOOO EXCIIIIIITEEEEDDDD!!!
