It's time to start the monthly updates
I would say weekly, but let's not kid ourselves I cannot commit to that!
Now that my belly is finally showing I am going to take weekly pics and then update then when they things look bigger ;)
Anyways....here we go!
How far along are you?
17 weeks, it has really flown by!
Total weight gain:
up 8 lbs although it feels like so much more.
I am sure after next week and our vacation I will be in double digits haha
How big is baby?:
About 5 ounces and 5 inches from head to buns! About the size of a bell pepper
Not yet, I stocked up on some T's in a size up that should get me through the pregnancy!
I can't stand maternity clothes so I try to just make it through with larger sizes in pants and shirts!
No more than before!
Decent, I have been reading before bed to try to fall asleep quicker and it's been working so it's getting better and I limited my water intake at night so I am not going to the bathroom a million times.
Best moment this week?:
Vincent and Luke keep mentioning the baby. They both claim it's a girl! I just love hearing them talk about the baby. I love reminding them that they were once in my belly as well. It's so surreal to be pregnant and to have toddlers, you can see what they will become in just a few short years!
I have felt tiny twinges here and there! I love it!
I go back and forth between sweet and salty.
I have just been trying to keep my protein intake up because I get dizzy and lightheaded a lot.
Just gotta keep eating!
No way thank God!
Belly button in or out?:
What I miss:
I would LOVE a glass of wine, or two!
And to not feel exhausted. This pregnancy has been the worst thus far!
What I'm looking forward to:
Meeting our little one in 23ish weeks! I cannot wait to hold him or her!
What I'm not looking forward to:
Jude came within 15 minutes of us walking into the hospital so I am VERY nervous for the delivery. I just want to make it to the hospital, I can already picture me delivering him or her in the car or something awkward. I just want enough notice to get into a room and have a doctor deliver haha!
We are NOT finding out.
I know I said that the past two times but Jordan is VERY adamant that he does not want to know.
So we will have our ultrasound next month and LOOK AWAY when they show the gender....
What I can tell you is that we have names.
William John or William Joseph
is our top runner for the boys team
Let's face it, it's probably another boy haha
BUT if not, we decided on a NEW girl name....
We had been in love with Giuliana but the love faded and we have both fallen in love with Charlotte!
I just love the old charm to it, my great aunt was named Charlotte and she was a spit fire and always the person I looked forward to seeing so it is only fitting to name her Charlotte!
There you have it....
Pregnancy is good minus the exhaustion but I am chugging along!
I am excited for my belly to keep growing because I still am in the awkward stage of "is she or isn't she pregnant!" but every day the baby is growing as is my belly!:)
Anyone else expecting in December!?!?
Our due date is December 20th!
Hope all you guys are feeling FAB if you are pregnant!
