Happy Birthday Mommy!

17 1/2 weeks

This is a picture of me on my own birthday! I have finally started showing and gaining weight - 5 pounds so far, which is very exciting. I think I felt an actual kick last night, rather than the little flutters I've been feeling for the past few weeks.

Our next appointment is on March 2nd, 2007 - we find out the gender!!

15 Week Update

15 1/2 weeks

I do not have any exciting new ultrasound pics to share, however I wanted to give a quick update on how the pregnancy is progressing. If you have been paying attention to the belly photos you'll notice that I am finally starting to grow a noticeable pregnant belly, which is really exciting. In fact, today is my first day in maternity pants! I haven't gained any weight yet, but my tummy is definitely sticking out as a result of my uterus growing and changing positions. Also, and this is the most exciting thing, I have been feeling the baby move quite frequently in the past week. It is beyond exciting! I wish I could share it with Nate, but unfortunately it's just little fluttery feelings when the baby brushes his/her foot or hands against my uterine wall. It almost tickles. It is a wonderful reassurance that everything is going well, and that the baby is moving around and growing. I'll be back to update as soon as we find out whether we are having a boy or a girl, on March 2nd! Until then :)
