17 Weeks

17 weeks already. Where does the time go?

I had one of my silver chalkboards up in the kitchen that I'd write important monthly plans on. I took it down in February when my sister was stopping by and quickly hid it in the closet as she didn't know I was pregnant yet. I pulled it out yesterday and realized that was 10 weeks ago! My pregnancy counter said 7 weeks. Too funny.

I can no longer button any of my regular pants. I wear my belly band like an addict so I can still rock my regular attire. The only early purcahses I made were a single pair of maternity pants from F21, two belly bands and a spandex maternity tank for layering. Those have been serving me really well with the majority of my regular wardrobe.

The baby is growing like a champ. I was told I'm probably one of the most boring pregnant women ever. No sickness, no complications, no bad tests, healthy baby... Can't complain, can I? No new picture from the 17 week check up. Baby is too big to take a full body photo now and given the position the little one chose to lay in yesterday, we only got a shot of the head and belly. I honestly couldn't even point out what was what in the picture she sent us home with!

Just two weeks away from our anatomy scan! We're really looking forward to finding out he or she. I have this feeling it's a boy, and a lot of family have guessed boy as well. I only have two fans rooting for a girl. So feel free to leave your guesses! I'd love to hear what other's think :)

Visited our nephew Riley and the family this weekend. Holy cow, that kid is just so neat.  He's so big from the last time we saw him and already so smart. He loves to sit up and look around. He pays very close attention when you talk to him and has to be the cubbiest little thing I've ever held. Perfect little rubberband wrists and ankles. Oh, and do you see those eyes? This picture doesn't do justice to the beautiful blue and full set of eyelashes. They're to die for!

My sister-in-law gave me two big bags of amazing baby stuff during our visit. Riley never fit newborn size onesies, so I came home with at least 10 brand new ones for our baby. She included milk storage bags, a milk organizer, nursing pads, a book, a few receiving blankets and a doppler. She also gave me a whole garbage sack full of maternity clothes collected between her and her sister. It was such a sweet thought from the both of them. I have so much stuff now, there's no need to buy a thing on my own. All I have to worry about is finding the perfect dress for my shower in August. I couldn't be more blessed with a great family!

Hope all of my lovely blog friends are well. Life has just been so busy with work, house work, family and of course, the energy I'm now sharing with the baby! Can't wait to share the gender news. Soon!

I just took one of my friends, who is about as far along as you, to Marshalls. They had tons of summer dresses and she was able to get two that fit her now and will also allow her to grow. One of them is even one she'll for sure be able to wear after baby. So yeah...go look!
