Bumpdate: Week 17

::15 weeks::

::16 weeks::
::17 weeks::

I don't feel like I am changing that much. I think I am showing, but maybe more in a chubby way than a pregnant way. I am ready for this belly to POP! So far the only things that are growing are my legs and hips ; ) 

How Far Along? 17 weeks Weight Gain: I am not sure... I am buying a scale this week! Maybe. Part of me doesn't want to know ; ) I can only fit into about two of my pants, and I ripped one the other day... So I'm definitely gaining something Maternity Clothes? No but I am in desperate need of some good maternity pants! All mine are uncomfortable or don't fit. I also have been on the hunt for a swimsuit for Hawaii. I don't think I am big enough for a maternity suit quite yet, and will probably need one of those in June when I am huge, but I still don't know how mine will fit since my body is definitely differently proportioned than it used to be Sleep? I am tired all of the time. I have had a harder time sleeping though. I can fall asleep as early as 8 o'clock, but I can't sleep in past 7 or 8, even if I go to be d late. I think it's because I wake up starving. I also have been sick so sleep has not been my friend. Hopefully that'll go away soon Best moment this week? Finding out baby is a girl! I am so excited and it is ALL I can think about! Also, Taylor accepted a job at High Mark construction and I am so proud of him! Weird pregnancy moment? Feeling baby move! It is so weird! I felt her move just after 15 weeks, and was so surprised. I haven't felt her a lot since that first week, but every now and then I do and it just makes me so happy. I can't believe I have something growing inside of me. I think as I feel her move and I am showing more everything will seem more real. I have had a really easy pregnancy {Knock on wood} Food Cravings: I am still loving avocado toast {When am I not...}. I also like the baked chips selection Costco has had lately. I can eat salads again and even cooked some roasted veggies this past week! I think I am over the queasy veggie spell I was under Anything Making You Queasy? Nothing really specific... I don't like soup that much. Also still Chinese food Gender: GIRL! What I'm looking forward to: Making more decorations for the nursery! I made a mobile, painting, got some prints, and have picked out a crib. I am so excited! I also am getting anxious to know where we will live since we only have a one bedroom apartment. I am praying we will find a house before the baby comes! We will see!

It's a.....




GIRL!!!! 
We were SO shocked. This whole pregnancy Taylor & I have been convinced we were having a boy. Even while we were at the ultrasound we kept saying 'Come on little dude!' because baby really likes to keep her legs crossed. Or maybe she was showing us for calling her a boy for so long! Either way we are over the moon excited!! I have started shopping for clothes and a nursery... And I don't know how I will ever be able to stop! I have so many projects planned and often lay out all her clothes on the couch just so I can look at how cute they are. I have major problems. ; ) Knowing it's a girl totally made me feel different than I did when I thought it was a boy. First of all, my love for this babe basically was bursting out of me. I will never forget the love I felt for her that night after we found out. All of a sudden everything was so real. Taylor & I also felt so much more responsibility for some reason. Girls are sensitive, delicate, & Taylor started taking on the role of protective dad. I just want her to always be happy and know how loved she is.
