It seriously feels like just yesterday when I was calling to schedule my first doctor appointment. I mean, I have a long way to go yet... but it seems like it's going by so fast! These next few weeks will drag, I'm sure... because in 3 weeks we have the anatomy scan and will be finding out the gender of our little babe! I thought I had a hunch that we were having a girl for a while, but at our last appointment the doctor listened to the heartbeat and it was 153bpm and she said her guess is that we're having a boy. Now I don't know what to think! She threw me off.. I guess I'll just stick with girl. I will be ecstatic either way, I just want our baby to be healthy and happy. :)
We made our first baby purchase the other day! It definitely is making things seems more real (as if my rapidly growing belly isn't). I'm counting down... 2 weeks and 3 days.. until we find out the gender of our little babe. I can't wait to start decorating the nursery - I have a lot of neat ideas for it!
I'm 99.9% sure I've felt some baby flutters, which brings a smile to my face every time. :) I'm sure within a few weeks they'll start to be more constant and more noticeable. Also, I'm always hungry. Always. At my last doctor appointment I gained 6 pounds so far... well, I lost 5 pounds at first.. so I'm actually right around my 'normal' weight, just with a bigger belly. ;)
17 week picture! I can definitely tell the difference since last week! Don't mind my awesome pajamas.. :)
