Week 16 and 17

This week I started my 17th week...crazy to think! Week 16 and 17 were nothin too much to speak of. I have been feeling pretty good, having some more energy, and starting to think about all I have to do in the upcoming weeks. I kind of feel like I am in holding pattern, I feel it is to early to start doing anything for the nursery (not that I have a clue what I want to do!) I just feel stuck...So Im reminding myself that I need to just relax and enjoy this part of my pregnancy. I have not felt any movement yet, Im still saying it is gas bubbles...I want a hard kick..unrealistic I know, but I want to know for sure! I am still wearing my regular clothes, sometimes at night unbuttoning the top button. I feel like I have a little pooch, but Mark thinks I am making it up. My next ultra sound is in a couple of weeks, it is the anatomy scan...we are planning on not finding out if it is a boy or girl! Im looking forward to the end surprise, but I must is getting harder and harder...I know I will be tempted to find out at my appointment, but I have to keep the end prize in mind...a wonderful surprise moment! Im secretly hoping that I will get a shot of the baby's "parts" haha...Im think I will have better luck with that if it is a boy...Speaking of boys....Is it bad to admit that I want a boy?! Don't get me wrong, I want the baby to be healthy blah blah blah, but Mark and I both want a boy. The weird thing is that my deep down gut feeling says it is a girl. It will take probably a little time to get used to the idea of a girl, but Im sure it wont be long. I know I will not be disappointed either way, Im just being honest! Well there is my little recap, nothing too exciting just some random pregnant thoughts!  Baby is the size of onion, but doing so many amazing things...I'm looking forward to the weeks ahead!


  1. Oh my goodness...BECCA! I have been MIA from the blogging world (it's busy raising three sweet little ladies, what can I say?!!) I am so excited for you I can't hardly contain myself! I told Adam right away and he was excited too! You are going to make such a wonderful Momma! I pray this pregnancy goes smooth and you'll be holding your boy...oh..I mean baby in your arms in about 20+ weeks! Awww...I was JUST thinking of you today. The girls will be ONE YEAR next Saturday. I wish you would see them! We will bring them to the NICU soon. I PROMISE! I'm returning my pump soon (well, in about 10 weeks)...can I get a HALLELUJAH and AMEN!!!

    Congratulations! God bless you, Mark, and your sweet baby!

  2. (Meant I wish you "Could" see them! I knew you would see them if we would just bring them by..haha!)
