Ivan and I are on our much deserved babymoon. It's been so great relaxing here on Oahu. Before our trip I was a little worried that I wasn't feeling him at all. "Flutters" or "butterflies" is what everyone would told me it would feel like. As you know I am very impatient (working on that). The last couple of days I have been feeling the actual flutters! I have been feeling him more at night when I'm winding down. Last night when we were lying down I put Eye's hand on my belly. I took several deep breaths saying in my head, "Okay baby, move for Daddy," and HE DID!!! The look on Ivan's face was priceless. It was a look of "Wow!!!" and "Oh sh*t this is real!" Then he went to my belly and started talking to the baby. He loved the sound of Daddy' s voice! He actually kicked harder. It was such an amazing moment to have with Eye. I actually felt like it was the first time the 3 of us connected, it was amazing.

It feels good to be on Oahu on the day our first African-American president is sworn into office. Today we woke up at 6:30 am to watch history in the making. I cried as he walked down the hallway. I cried when he was getting sworn in. I couldn't help but think to myself, "What is Bush thinking right at this moment?" Then I began to think about change. Change is here. It is present on this day and will be present in these next years. Change in our government, change in my body, change in my husband, change in our relationship, change in my life period. I'm ready for change, in all change that is coming.

Okay NOW you have to see the bump. We went to Brian Head, Utah for New Years and when I came back I head a belly! It happened over just 3 days. Today I am 20 weeks and 1 day. I went for my check up and heard the baby's heart beat. The doctor said the heart is strong and that I am at the perfect weight for where I am in my pregnancy. I have gained 10 pounds. I can definitely feel the weight on me but I really don't mind it. It feels good. I feel pregnant now and I absolutely love it. Now that the show is done I have been doing more pilates, but I am modifying everything that I do. The only thing that is annoying is that I think I am beginning to have allergies! Ugh! I have a runny nose and I'm sneezing all the time. Not sure if it's the wind, the weather or just dusty Vegas. They say your more prone to runny noses when your preggers since there is a lot more blood and hormones in your body. This Friday I have another big ultrasound. Not sure if I want to do the 3-D or 4-D. I kinda want to be surprised when I see him for the first time since we already know that he's a boy. Next week Ivan and I go to Hawaii for 3 weeks. I can't wait! Hmmmm maybe I need to buy a new bathing suit for my new body.
