Category “the bump”



18 weeks, 7 days


it’s amazing how quickly time flies.  I can’t believe that in just one week and one day I’ll be halfway through my pregnancy.  and I’m just starting to have a little bump!  I love that I’m finally showing but I think it’s still small and kind hovers around that point where it could be mistaken for a big beer gut or being really full from dinner.

I bought a Bella Band last weekend and man… it’s a lifesaver!!  I don’t quite need it for this pair of jeans because they ride so low but I’ve definitely put it to good use with other jeans and cords.  I’m really hoping that I won’t have to purchase too many maternity clothes, however some of my dresses with defined waistlines have already been folded and put to the back of my closet.

tomorrow morning we go to my mid-pregnancy anatomy ultrasound and there we’ll get to see if we’re having a boy or a girl!!  we’re so excited to find out but honestly I’m most excited to see our baby again. he/she has been kicking so much, it’ll be fun to watch as he/she wriggles around on the screen while I’m feeling those little taps.  this will be my third and I’m guessing my last ultrasound until he or she is born!
