Growing...

The baby is now clocking in at 17 weeks or right at 4 1/2 months. I'm finally starting to get a little bump and I think I've felt him/her move a few times. My appetite is starting to increase more and more...I'm not used to eating this much or often! Thomas just laughs at me. I've gained about 10 lbs. so far which isn't too bad I guess. None of my pants will button anymore so I have to wear a BellaBand to keep wearing them which helps to cover the unzipped part and keep them up. Pretty nifty invention! I've also gotten some maternity tops and jeans from Kohls, who has great deals on maternity clothes btw. So the next big milestone is the second trimester ultrasound, otherwise known as the one where you find out the sex! We'll be heading to that on January 18 and I couldn't be more excited. I hope the little bugger cooperates so we can see the goods. I look forward to knowing the sex so I can do more as far as thinking about the nursery and stuff to register for etc.

We had a great Christmas with the fam in Cherryville and got lots of great gifts like a new computer and a video camera to share the joy of our child with the in-laws overseas and everyone else who lives far away! I look forward to capturing all the great moments with it. Now it's back to work and for Thomas back to school in a few weeks. I'll make an update in a few weeks and hopefully we'll know what we're having!
