Fingerprints, Sonograms, & Swim Class...

Today I am 14 weeks pregnant! =)

This week baby has developed fingerprints... I found an article that I just thought was amazing so I decided to share-

Your baby now has fingerprints! Book 'em Danno! Believe it or not, he actually created them himself while swimming around in the amniotic fluid. As he moved his hands, the skin on the tips of his fingers formed unique ridges and folds. That's why no one in the world has the same fingerprints, not even identical twins!

Isn't that just AMAZING? Well, I thought so anyway...

So I'm pretty undecided about whether I am going to have my gender ultrasound when it is scheduled at 16 weeks. I'm nervous they won't be able to tell, and I'm even more nervous that they won't get good enough measurements of all the organs. All this has me thinking, why on earth don't I have a friend who's a sonogram tech? Someone find me one of those!

And of course we have our third Water Babies class on Friday... something that has been so fun and yet has made me realize that I am the mother of 'the bad kid'. No joke... Princess is the only one screaming for no reason... trying to run away from me... pitching fits when she doesn't get her way.... oh and NOT swimming! I get stared at- a lot. Of course at that point I'm wondering where my "Just you wait!" t-shirt is for all the mothers of 6 month olds...

Well, sounds like the monster is awake now so we're headed to the park with our freshly painted, matching pink toe nails... (Today was her first pedicure!)
