Baby Talley is due June 15, 2012 and we are so excited!
I've wanted to announce this for awhile, but know the risks of telling too early. I am almost 17 weeks and feeling awesome! Besides being hungry ALL the time, I have no complaints and have had no sickness (I know this will make some of you very angry at me as I am well aware that most pregnancies are not this easy). I am keeping a positive attitude that all will continue to go well for the next 5 months:)
-craving burgers, avacado, salsa, and jalepenos; also cereal (but that's nothing new) and omelettes
-gained 4 pounds so far (I know this will increase dramatically in the next few months)
-wearing maternity pants already (demi band styles from Gap fit great - full belly still too big)
-still wearing my shoes - I'm paranoid that I wont be able to fit into my cute shoes, after all a pregnant girl has to rely on colorful accessories when all maternity wear has to offer is black pants and jeans! Fingers crossed!
-walking semi-regularly (I say semi because I seem to be in a rut the past few weeks)
-no idea at all what the sex is - I really don't have a "feeling" as they say; I've always wanted a girl, so I've mentally prepared for a boy (Don't get me wrong, I will be happy either way, but let's face it, everyone deep down has a preference at first, right?!)
-names already decided on - I told Brent that I wanted to decide on names before I became "hormonal" in fears that I would rashly push for some outrageous name in my non-human state
-emotional state - easily irritated (I apologize to everyone I've come in contact with, as my fuse is VERY short these days), and crying at almost anything remotely sad (Thanks, Hallmark Movie Channel, for letting me unleash all emotions over your sappy and heart warming movies this holiday season)
- clearing out the house BIG TIME - losing an entire room and closet in the house is tough, but we are enjoying down-sizing, it's liberating to get rid of things and donate to those who really need them
|13 weeks, probably more bloating than baby...but it's always fun to show a baby bump - finally!|
|I've missed weeks 15 and 16, but will upload a 17 weeks soon:)|
