Hide n Go Seek

Bella often sprints around the house and hides from us! Its amazing the little tiny areas she can fit and squeeze herself into! No spot is left unturned as you can see by the video below!

You may need to click on the picture below and go to our Picasa site to view the video. There are 10 others on there too if you need a Bella fix!

Pregnancy Comparison and Quiz

Okay, we are in the final weeks before Baby S #2 debuts, so I thought I'd post some comparison photos from when I was pregnant with Bella and open up a new quiz to determine if you all think #2 will be a boy or a girl. Remember, more than 68% of you said #1 was a boy and it was a baby girl, so answer wisely!! :0)

Here are a few other details to help you in your guessing perhaps:

1. As far as the overall pregnancy is concerned, both pregnancies have been VERY similar.

2. Baby S #2 moves and kicks much more frequently and rapidly than Baby #1 did. Baby 1 had hard, slow, forceful kicks. Baby 2 is a rapid fire kicker.

3. Baby S #1 lodged self up under Mommy's ribs. BAby 2 stays lower and belts in on Mommy's bladder!

4. I had no cravings really with either pregnancy, but with Baby 1 I loved to eat meat, potatoes or anything that I could dip something else in. With Baby 2, I have a tad bit of a sweet tooth, but nothing out of the ordinary. I drink a TON more water, though!

5. I don't remember being as uncomfortable sitting with Baby #1 for long periods of time at my desk as I do with Baby #2.

6. Baby S #1's heartrate was always between 146-148 at all appointments until we were in the hospital when it went up to 156 the whole time. Baby S #2's heart rate was 128 at the first appointment, 170 at the second, and then has been anywhere between 142-148 for the rest of the appointments, mostly settling around 145/6.

Okay, there you go! Hope that helps you as you decide! Vote on the poll in the right hand column!
