Update on the Cygnet (baby Swann)

I have decided that the baby is already taking after it's father. It enjoys wiggling, kicking, wiggling, summersaulting, and wiggling all the time. The only time it is still is when I am moving, or if Randy really wants to feel the baby move. The moment he puts his hand on my belly, the baby calms down and falls asleep. It is quite funny how frustrated Randy gets. I just hope the baby will continue to calm so easily with his touch after it is born. Then, if the baby is screaming and upset, I will just hand it (I keep wanting to write her, but Randy says it is not fair to try to sway the votes) to dad and the baby will go to sleep. Oh the baby has also starting hiccuping. It is the weirdest feeling. I made the mistake of drinking sparkling cider with Valentine's Day dinner and oh my the baby just about went crazy with all the extra sugar. It was the one time that Randy hasn't been able to calm the baby. He was amazed and kept saying "it is bouncing of the walls, isn't it?" I think my insides are slightly bruised because of how tender I felt this morning. Pregnancy is so interesting.
Well, other than the baby, life is pretty much the same. Randy had me come to class with him 2 weeks ago and I got to be the story lady. I read my favorite children's book to his class. It is called "Itzy Bitzy House" by Christine Morton-Shaw. It is so much fun to read. The class he is with this semester is a preschool class and they are so adorable and so much fun. I enjoyed being Ms. Sarah for a day. Randy is doing well is school and getting rave reviews by the teacher he is shadowing. He is even doing so well that he got to teach the class when the teacher had to go to a meeting and the sub was his helper. He is definately going to be a great teacher. Less than 1 1/2 years until he graduates ( May 2010). I am so much more excited for his impending graduation that I was for my own. I am doing well at work. I am starting to wonder how long I will be able to keep working. I have the energy to do the job, but I am worried I won't be able to reach around my belly. I am growing at a speedy rate. We have a check up this week, so I will find out if I am still on target with everything. I will update again soon.

Dont you just love being pregnant? I miss it so much. With the first you just want the baby out so badley so you can play it it and love it even more. But ounce the baby is out about 6 months goes by and you start to miss being pregnant. :)

Keep in mind that if your baby is going crazy at night it will be up all night when it is born. Its a little hinter.
