Coming to you by popular demand is a picture of my "baby bump." I'm in my 19th week now and it's growing by the day, I swear. I feel like I got off to a slow start, but now we're really cookin'!

Speaking of bumps...I think I MIGHT have felt the baby move a few times here and there. It's hard to tell if it's the baby or just indigestion. It's about that time to start feeling it/he/she move though. It never happens more than once in a row really, so it's not something I can "share" with Chad just yet. I'm excited for Baby H to start getting active in there so Chad can feel it too.

Gender countdown = T minus 7 days. This time next week we will (hopefully) know if we're having a boy or a girl! (I just have this fear that something is going to go wrong with the scheduling and the sonogram is going to fall through since it's our first appointment with our new doctor.) I will be so disappointed if we have to wait longer than expected to find out. We are so anxious to know if we are having a son or a daughter, a grandson or a granddaughter, a nephew or a niece....

Stay tuned!


  1. I can see the bump so much more than when I saw you two weeks ago!!! You're so adorable!

  2. Sweetie, there's something in there and rest assured it will be adorable!

  3. Rachel, GREAT look wonderful! Little Mason DeMauro is coming for a visit today & I brought the highchair out of the attic this morning. My comment to Don was.." this will be a permanent fixture in our kitchen next year." Needless to say, we are looking forward to being grandparents. On my way to get Chad's Brio train set out for Mason.

  4. You're so cute, Rach! I can't believe you're finding out the sex next week! I can't wait to hear what it is! I think if it's a girl you are going to have to call her Mary Jules after me and Julie. Or Julie-Marie. Or Juma. Jumary? Have you shared the blog with Jules?
    You are a beautiful pregnant woman and I can't wait to see you in person!!!

  5. Beautiful Baby Bump! I can't wait to see it in person. We're heading back this weekend to "winter" in Atlanta.

  6. Finally! You look amazing. I can't wait to see/feel it in person! Keep posting pics.
