17 Weeks

Tomorrow I'm 17 weeks along! Wow, it has gone fast. I will post a picture soon since I definitely have a pooch. I went shopping yesterday because some of my shirts aren't fitting and had a hard time. I'm not quite ready for maternity shirts but the next size up in regular clothes isn't quite working. I'm using the Bella Band and it has worked wonders since I am still wearing all my pants (I can't zip them but I'm wearing them!). I go on Wednesday for another prenatal check-up (my appointment was supposed to be last Friday but they closed the office early due to the snow) so maybe we can finally hear the heart beat. Then in 3 weeks we will find out if we are having a boy or girl. We are going to be surprised early! :) I'm feeling so much better now and I actually have energy to take Molly for walks after school. I told my kids at school and many of them said they thought that I was having a baby. I guess you really can tell, especially if my 2nd graders can tell. We might have found a house but we are in the negotiating stages. Keep your fingers crossed.

So thrilled you're going to find out gender! I have never understood all those folks who wait over 9 months to be surprised, its still a surprise regardless of when you know and isn't that what technology is for?! Keeping my fingers crossed for you on the house....take care.

I'm glad you're feeling better! I cannot wait to find out what you're having. (Okay, that sounds really weird - "what" you're having - but isn't that what people say?)
