Belly Update!

I'm still here! And I've still got a little peanut growing in my belly. This week my What to Expect When You're Expecting app says he/she is the size of a sweet potato. :)

The first trimester went relatively easy. I consider myself one of the lucky ones anyway. Some nausea but very minimal vomiting. Just quite a bit of fatigue but I have gotten some energy back in recent weeks.

I am currently 17 weeks and 3 days. We go for our anatomy ultrasound in a little over 2 weeks. Hopefully the little one will show the goods! We certainly hope so because we have a gender reveal party all planned and our families have already been invited.

We have been busy getting the room that is to be the nursery cleaned out. That is pretty much done now and we are just waiting to find out if we have a little Mama's boy or Daddy's girl on our hands so we can start painting (well, not me with my pregnant self, mostly hubby) and decorating.

Here is a little peek at my belly's progression since 12 weeks. I possibly had a little bit of baby showing but mostly a whole lot of bloat then (let's just say I haven't seen my previously flat belly since about 4 or 5 weeks) and now I'm starting to really pop! Ha ha. Definitely got some baby showing.


Right now we are just gearing up for the holidays.  I've already started putting out some Christmas decorations and now I'm just waiting on picking out our tree (we do a real one) so I can get it up and decorated.  Christmas is my favorite time of year. :)

I'll try to check in again soon.  I was hoping I'd be able to do the pregnancy updates that so many expectant blogger moms do, but I have too much going on.  I'm lucky to get the pictures and measurements every week!  Ha ha.

Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate it. :)

I love baby bellies!

The other day, I saw a super skinny girl with stick arms and legs with a great big belly. She looked so cute! I'm sure she didn't feel cute though.
