17-Weeks Update

We are at 17-weeks now!
I'm actually starting to look pregnant and not just fat anymore.
Kind of nice!
I think from here on out things will really start picking up pace and December will be here before we know it!
 We will be finding out the gender of the baby on July 4th.
We're SUPER excited!
As for me, I'm feeling pretty good and I've gained 10-pounds so far.
I've somehow managed to keep up my power walking.
5x's a week 2-miles each time.
I find that it makes me feel better all around.
I just wonder if I'll be able to keep it up the whole time?
Maybe not 5x's a week but at least 3?

Clothes are getting tough.
I'm still not in maternity wear but instead making my regular clothes work by wearing a belly band.
Shirts are tough though.
My ta-ta's have gotten huge and along with the bigger belly ~ shirts just aren't working.
The good news is ~ my cousin gave me an entire box of her maternity clothes and we are the same size.

We're heading up to the Blue Ridge Parkway this weekend to camp with friends.
I'm SUPER excited!
I can't wait to get out of the heat, hike and just hang out!
I'm sure it will be packed giving it's the weekend before the 4th.

What are you all up to this weekend?

Dee, you look precious! I always looked like an elephant when I was pregnant. True story.

Keep up the good work!

You really do look adorable. That is the cutest little bump. I think if I were pregnant in the summer, I'd just wear maxi dresses all day every day . . . actually, I'm not pregnant and that's pretty much what I do. :)

Excited to hear about the gender!

Kate said...

You look amazing! Must be gaining all of your weight in your belly and boobs because your legs and arms are needle thin. Lucky mama! I'm dying to know the sex of your baby. What an exciting day to find out. You can't drink on the 4th, but you'll will have the gender revealed which will put you on such a natural high all day. Cheers to you!

Aww! So cute! ENJOY your pregnancy. I really enjoyed mine...even when it got tough toward the end. It's just such an AMAZING thing. Can't wait to hear if it's a boy or a girl.

an ENTIRE box of maternity clothes!? I am so jealous :) I can't wait to find out the gender!

It felt so much more real when we found out ours was a little boy!
