Good Evening and HAPPY FRIDAY! We are 15 weeks and 5 days pregnant. Oddly enough I feel like I am still loosing weight, but starting to look pregnant if you looks close enough (you can see pictures on myspace or facebook). My sister says "You look so cute, but you are going to be gaining like crazy soon." To which I reply "Thanks ALOT!" I still cannot believe that I am actually pregnant and that in 5.5 months we'll have a beautiful newborn. WOW...I mean 4 more weeks and we are 1/2 through the pregnancy. I so in shock, so I have Chris use our fetal doppler to find the heartbeat to make sure its still there. He is AMAZING at finding it and I LOVE hearing it!
Currently I am always tired and I dont know if it's because I have been working like crazy or if its due to the pregnancy, but either way, I am sooooo exhausted! I havent had any cravings to date, but my skin is super itchy. But then again it could just be the weather and not the pregnancy. MY BOOBS ARE HUGE! It's crazy! I know I had big boobs to begin with, but good LORD! Moreover, the end is nowhere in site...I think maybe I should look into doing pregnancy porn with all of the new growth going on. Then again, I dont want to know what I look like doing it...hahaha...
Oh in about 2 weeks we will find out if we are having a little boy or a little girl. Funny enough, I almost want to wait and have it be a surprise, but I know Chris wants to find out, so we'll see.
Anyway, for those for those of you in the NYC area, our shower is on June 14th in Westhampton and for those in ATL, I think our shower will be in July 5th or 12th at our house.
I guess that's about it. Call, email or send a letter and never hesitate to visit!

As I am sure all of you know: WE ARE PREGNANT!!! We are currently about to start our 2nd trimester and I am feeling really good. I have lost 10lbs since getting pregnant, primarily due to eating better and eating less in general. I only had one real bought of morning sickness and almost feel like this pregnancy is too good to be true. We are obviously over the moon and cannot wait to see if we are having a little boy Powers or a little girl Powers. Chris is on Team Pink and I am on Team Blue. We will know in 4 weeks or so. Telling Chris was great and so was telling our parents...I have video and will be sure to post them in another post! Just FYI Chris curses alot, he was quite shocked as was I. Anyway, see a picture of baby Powers to the left and a video with the baby's heartbeat. Love to everyone and thank you to all of your support! Love, Alana, Chris and Baby Powers
