Week 14


How far along? Week 14!

Best moment this week: Seeing the baby last week, and I have an ultrasound Tuesday! (Worst part, having blood work done…welcome to social healthcare, where the needles create big, big, big bruises. Ouch!)

Miss Anything?  Not because of pregnancy! lol. Well, I guess eating as much as I want without getting indigestion or getting up to pee in the middle of the night all the time. Smile

Movement:  Not yet, unfortunately.

Food cravings: Sweet! Cookies, cakes, fruit, jelly, peanut butter, syrup…

Belly Button in or out? In.

Happy or Moody most of the time:  Moody! Grrrr… 

Weight Gain So far: –6 lbs! (-3 kgs)

Wedding rings on or off? On still. Smile 

Looking forward to: Getting to see little peanut, again tomorrow! (I got an ultrasound at the doctor’s office last week at my appointment, but I have to go to a lab to get an “official” ultrasound. Which sounds like a lot of work, but it means that I get to see my baby 2 times in 2 weeks! Whoo hoo! Things are a little different here, and tests are usually done outside of your doctor’s office, which takes some getting used to. BUT I get to see my baby, again! Smile)

I’ll post a picture tomorrow, even though there is no baby bump, yet. Smile

…And Baby Makes Four!

I cannot believe it has been so long since I’ve last posted on this blog! Gideon is still growing like a weed! He is one and a half! I can’t believe that, either! He has the biggest personality, 12 teeth, working on 2 more! And…

Gideon Baby

Is he not the cutest thing?

That’s right, folks! I’m pregnant! In Portugal! We are very excited to meet this new little Barker in April. (Yes, Gideon’s b-day is April 20, and the new little one is due April 19! Maybe we’ll have another early bird.) And this also means…Pregnancy countdown! I haven’t made a shirt, yet, but I will soon. Smile

I’ve also had a birthday this month. The morning sickness, and night sickness, stuck around long enough to say, “Parabens!” (Congratulations/Happy B-day in Portuguese.) For my birthday, David took me to Lisbon! Well, we all went as a family. We went to eat at a great seafood place, saw some great friends (who watched Gideon while we went out to eat!), went to the zoo (best zoo I’ve ever visited!), ate at a freebirds type restaurant, and ate at a Hardrock CafĂ©. (Is it bad that my great birthday trip mainly included food? Tenho saudades!) Here are a few pictures from that trip.

Although I had a great time in Lisboa, gosto mais do Porto! Smile I like living in Porto a lot better, I think…
