So I got some news back today about meeting with a doctor about our baby. I am being sent to a prenatal specialist for high risk pregnancies. Not that I have a high risk pregnancy, just this once I am going to have a level two sonogram and if the cysts look smaller or have stopped growing I will probably go in once more and then just see my normal doctor. However, if they are bigger I will have to continue seeing this doctor and figure out what to do once the baby is born. I have already been told if the cysts are still there they will want to do an amniocentesis. Which Eric and I both think it is to risky. The appointment will be Thursday the 6th of May. I am glad to be getting this done but I don't feel like it will change anything. We love little Owen so much already and I just can't imagine not getting to hold him for the first time. Other then that we are totally packed and ready for Hawaii. In my down time today I started working on little Owen's name for his room. They are turning out so well. I obviously have two more letters but I can only do so much with six kiddo's running around.

Ok to let everyone know who doesn't already know Eric and I are having a baby boy. His name is Owen Woodson Barta. He is a cute little rascal. He is 9 oz already and I am measuring 19 weeks. Making my new due date September 16, 2010. We are so very very happy to get to see this beautiful baby boy.

They have found two transit cysts on Little Owen's brain. The doctor says that it will probably go away on its own. I go back for another sonogram on May 13. Please pray for us. I am sure everything will be fine but all prayers are welcomed. I find out more on the cysts later on this afternoon.

We had a great weekend. We went to Guerne and met up with my Dad and Dina. Had a wonderful time. Great food, Great company, great shopping and great exercise. Today I am officially 18 weeks pregnant. I am feeling great. I think that I am feeling the baby a tone. I think the baby has been moving around like crazy lately. It may or may not be the baby but I think it is and it makes me feel good. We find out the sex on Thursday and though I don't think anyone has chimed in on the blog I have some bets. Dina, Eric, and Alan think boy and Me and my Mom think girl. Who knows.

I am starting my packing as we leave for Hawaii on Saturday morning. I am really excited and a little nervous. I am sure that it will be a blast.

I am also hoping that Eric and I can go see our friends, Maggie and Mike with their new little baby Keira, before we leave for Hawaii.

I put a dressed picture on here of what I look like. This is for you Jen. Ha Ha.

Well, I am officially 17 weeks pregnant. I feel like am am getting such a big belly. I do think that I am having a girl. I am starting to really fill out in the belly. Not much going on today. I felt the baby last night another little twitch in my lower belly. I love the feeling and I can't wait to feel it again. The kids have been crazy today. Only 10 days till we find out if the baby is a boy or a girl. More later.

Had so much fun for lunch today. I went to Molly Ullman's baby shower and had a blast. It was so great to see all the girls of course we really missed Amanda. However, it was good times. I finally got to see Chalsie's little boy Jackson and he is so big already and I feel like I missed so much. I hope that we can all get together very soon. Maybe over the summer . Maybe we will just get together for my baby shower. Neways, the shower was in Gruene at this little tea house. It was very cute and the food was awesome. Molly looked amazing and her belly is so little. Charlsie also looked amazing as did Shelly. Such beautiful people inside and out. We played a really fun matching game and one of my matches was "sex after baby" and I won a "zero" bar apparently you don't get any after the baby. All of the sayings had a special candy that went with it. It was a really cute game. Molly looked so happy and grateful. I was really happy to be a part of the shower. It was also really great to she Charlsie and Baby Jackson. I feel like I missed a lot of her pregnancy and since. The shower made me really excited to find out what we are having. I just can't wait. Twelve days and counting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boy or Girl we are taking bets. I will tell you that I am carring in my hips and very low in the belly. Plus my mom did a ring test and it said girl. I am not sure what all the theories are but take a guess it will be fun to see who gets it. Go with your gut that is what I am doing.
Eric says: Boy (we will be happy with a healthy baby no matter what gender.)
Tiffanie says: Girl

This week is flying by before you know it we will be in Hawaii. I can't wait even though I can't do as much as I would like to do it is worth it being pregnant. I have been feeling really good this week but for some reason yesterday I had a little episode. I ate some fruit salad and I am not sure if it was the prenatal or the fruit but I just started throwing up until I couldn't any more. I guess our bodies take care of things for us. I felt better by lunch. Today I had the same situation minus the fruit. I think it is the prenatal. I am going to start taking them at night. I guess you could say it was morning sickness. I feel great now but man that really sucks. Well there is not much to talk about today. Eric and I have just been chilling out very tired. I have a baby shower to go to this weekend plus a dinner with friends. It will be lots of fun. I really can't wait. I think that we actually have Sunday off. I am really happy about that because it is the only weekend day that we have nothing going on. Alright I am out.

April 5, 2010

Well Easter was great. We headed down to Houston on Saturday and we got to meet up with Tanvi and and her soon to be husband. Had a great time catching up with her but I feel like it was a little short. We will have to catch up again soon. It seems that all was going well with her. We spent time with my mom Saturday afternoon and evening. Mom and I walked around Babies R Us for a while. Then my sister and Reed finally made it down and we all had dinner together. It was nice. I could feel my stomach stretching all day. I did eat a tone of meat balls for dinner. On Sunday I we spent the day at the farm with the entire Miksch family. All the little ones did the Easter egg hunt and I got to be the Easter Bunny this year. Kind of fun. Next year I will have a little one of my own to pick up eggs with. I think our little one will be ok with empty eggs. Fun times!!
I am feeling good today. Kids are working on the letter Z final letter of the Alphabet. They will start beginning sounds next week. We are trucking along. Today starts week 16 and I am really starting to show. I know that I am going to get a tone bigger but I am already feeling like I am stretching a lot. In the belly that is. I have been keeping up my workout and everyday that I do my walking and weights I feel so great. I am a little worried about how I am going to handle the heat this summer but lots of women do it so I am sure I will be fine.

I am so glad for Friday. I only have two kiddo's and it is nap time so no biggy. We had a wonderful Easter party today. We made rabbit heads, then had an Easter egg hunt, and then ate some pizza and cup cakes. It was great. Plus all the mom's come and totally helped out. It was nice to have adult conversation during the day. The kid's did a great job hunting the eggs.

Well, yesterday ended up being a not so great day. I had a head ache from hell and it was so bad that it made me nauseated. I also was overly emotional crying one minute, laughing the next, irritated the next and ready to jump my husband the next. He liked that of course. Today, however, I feel great and am in a really great mood. The beauty of pregnancy.
I can't wait to see the fam this weekend. I haven't seen my sister since she graduated in December. It has been a while since I saw my mom too. We are also going to meet up with our friend Tanvi and her soon to be husband. We haven't seen them in forever, I don't even remember when we saw them last. Fun times!!

Feeling great today!! Had a good workout this morning. I couldn't sleep very well last night. First I couldn't fall asleep then when I finally did I woke up at 5 am and couldn't go back to sleep. I feel like the baby is doing well and just really happy and really grateful for everything in my life. Thank you God for the many blessings that you have given me. Mostly my husband and the beautiful baby growing inside me. Eric is so amazing and really I just love him so much. I didn't know that it was possible to love someone so much and unconditionally. Ok so my hormones are obviously make me a little over emotional but it is all true.

I went shopping last night for some more summer maternity clothes. Got some really great stuff and had a lot of fun. I went by myself and I took my time and just had a great and relaxing time. I got my first new bra that is a nursing bra also that was kind of exciting.

Well three more weeks until we find out about the sex of the baby. Eric and I watched a couple videos on parent connect. I watched a short video that tells you about weeks 15 to 20. It actually shows you what the baby is doing. It shows how it is growing. It says that you can actually tell the sex of the baby by 17 weeks. We watched a short video on the process of finding out if it is a boy or girl. It shows the process of a girl becoming a girl and a boy becoming a boy. It was kind of interesting. Then we watched a short video on what will happen on our next appointment and what they will be looking for on the next sonogram. It was fun to share that with Eric and for us to watch it together. Great day!!
