Holy BUMP - 17 Weeks.


I've officially got the bump, Folks.
It literally appeared overnight.
We're talking, I posted a pic on Facebook while Gabe was at work and he called me utterly confused. Didn't even think it was me.
Overnight. I swear.
How far along: 17 weeks. And yes, I'm actually posting while still 17 weeks...even if it is only for 3 more hours. ;)

Maternity Clothes: Um. Not yet. However, the belly band is working in overtime. None of my pants will zip! That's what happens when you're on spring break for a week...
Time to go shopping. Pronto.

Gender: ??? Have felt boy the entire pregnancy. But now, I'm questioning my gender guessing abilities. One of my besties revealed her babe's gender this week...and I was SURE I knew. But I was SURE wrong.

Side note:
I don't think there is anything more fun than being pregnant with one of your best friends since fourth grade...AND having our babies due 9 days apart. I couldn't resist getting our soon-to-be-bff babies a cute little something for them to wear out together.

Movement: Oh.my.goodness. Felt the first flutter this week. There is NOTHING more amazing. Felt like I swallowed a butterfly. Kept begging little babe to do it again. No such luck.

Sleep: Finally caved and bought a body pillow. Best decision ever. However, I'm still trying to figure out how to turn to bring the whole thing with me when I need to switch sides. So. I'm really only comfortable while sleeping on my left side...

What I miss: Being in control of my body.

Cravings: LOVING Silk Light Chocolate Soy Milk. Mmm. And still LOVING my prenatal swimming class. I seriously love Mondays because of it.


Other crazy symptoms: None this week. I've felt so incredibly...normal.

Size of Babe: Sweet potato. How cute!

Best Moment this week: Spending quality time with both of our families this weekend. The weather was gorgeous, and who doesn't love burgers, baked beans, and potato salad? It was so great - while the boys sat outside and smoked cigars, the gals stayed inside and chatted about childbirth. My how things have changed...

Getting surprised by the hubs to go see Hunger Games. Loved the book. Loved the movie. Love my hubby for putting up with annoying tweens on opening night.

Belly Pics:

And because my husband thought it was so hilarious...

Yes. That is a Bud Light.
Yes. I am one classy mama.

Haha you are hilarious! Love the onesies that you got for your babe and your friend. Can't wait to see them in it!

Oh My Goodness! I'm sure I have a picture of me somewhere holding one of hubbies beers with a way bigger belly then you have now....it's just a must when your pregnant, I think. LOL!! But, you look fabulous! I think 17 weeks is about when I started to really pop out too. Maybe we're about the same size??

You're so cute! And I went in to a liquor store while I was VERY pregnant. They looked at me like I was nuts!

Amanda said...

Yay! I love seeing updates. I remember thinking I had a bump at 16/17 weeks, but looking back at photos, it was nothing compared with what was to come! Can't wait to hear more about your pregnancy!
