18 Weeks Pregnant ! And it’s official, the bump has, well, exploded. I’m still on the (very) low end of the weight gain scale but I expect that to end any day now, as I eat at an alarming rate. Seriously, if it’s not nailed down? It’s not safe.
Not long after my doctors appt on Friday, I started feeling Baby F kick, which is always amusing. Little butterfly tickles at first and every once in a while a resounding *thump* to an internal organ. Hooray! Feeling the baby kick for the first time is always fun, especially when you’re still wondering if it’s spud, or just merely more pregnancy gas.
I’m am DIGGIN’ my maternity clothes now… especially after snagging a pair of killer white jeans at Target on sale and some great shirts, I’m feeling great. I have a bump and I am out of the “fat girl ate too many cheeseburgers” phase. It’s SO important to find clothes that fit and are flattering when you’re pregnant. I mean, there really isn’t anything worse than getting bigger and bigger, with nothing to wear that makes you feel remotely good about yourself. You have 9 months of this ladies, spring for some clothes that will fit you correctly. And I’m honestly kind of excited for fall, because SWEATERS! JEANS! BOOTS! so I’ll just make sure to snag some great pieces from Ebay, the Gap or Target. I’m not going to spend a fortune, but I am going to try to get SOME clothes to wear…
So yeah, I guess that’s it. Nothing too wild and crazy happening around these parts. Talk to you all later…
Oh wait… did I forget to mention that we had our gender ultrasound on Monday?
I did? Oh silly me.
What do YOU think it is???
Yup – we are having a girl!!! We’re so excited to get one of each and Drew is very excited for a little sister… I fully expect him to fulfill his role as big brother and beat the sh** out of her boyfriends in high school. I also expect that I will have a mini-me, so high school should be a dramatic and terrifying experience for all of us. I’ll start drinking now.
So yes, now it’s time to purge the boy clothes and start thinking about decorating a new room and clothing a little girl.
Holy crap, what am I getting myself into??
