Baby 19 weeks 2 days

Well we are now at 5 months the half way mark, which we are really happy about. I don't feel rushed, things are progressing at a nice pace. I can feel the baby move quite regularly and Andrew thinks he has felt it move. it likes to sit to one side or the other, so you can sometimes feel where it is or isn't. The ultrasound was a really cool experience as we could see our baby open and close it's mouth, wave it's hands and see it's spine flexing as it moved around.

At this point I still have no feelings either was as to whether it is a boy or a girl, and Andrew says if he were to pick based on an inkling he thinks it is a boy (but has planned and practiced his reactions to both-which he says are equal, yet different responses).

We are horrabley unprepared with no nursery, although we have talked about it a bit, in fact we have yet to purchase a single baby item yet. Our plans have been focussed more on the things we anticpate being harder to buy once we have the baby here, such as a couch or Andrew's flat screen and Play Station- you know essential items.

Last week end we flew to Edmonton for my Gerrany's 90th birthday, which was a lot of fun. I was amazed by all the friends and family that came from all over to attend the party, England, Toronto, Vancouver etc. One of my brother's made a slideshow to music with pictures throughout her life time and my other brother Sang a song about 3 old ladies stuck in a lavatory or something- it was good times.

Hey Anna, Just wanted to say that I'm happy for you guys and looking forward to hearing more about baby Mayo. As for the not purchased anything yet part, you have lots of time. I'm pretty sure that when I was as far along as you when I was expecting Elijah, I had only bought one very neutral yellow sleeper, that's it. No nursery stuff for a little while longer and a lot of it I held off on until the church had given us a shower (it was a pre-baby shower at 8 months). So enjoy your pregnancy, each step of it!
