17 Weeks and 2 Days

So, I'm sitting here eating Kraft Dinner (definitely a FAV of Little Baby Wilson' realizing that it's been almost two weeks since I've posted! Well, everything seems to be going just fine. My belly is growing larger every week. It's a lot of fun, actually, not having to worry about holding your stomach in! Since I was younger my mom always taught me to "suck it in" which is honestly some of the best advice (and what many girls SHOULD know that don't.) So now I'm enjoying the freedom of not having to think about it! It's glorious!

According to books and websites LBW is about 5 inches long now!! That's about the size of a ball point pen (although I'm willing to bet he/she doesn't quite look that slim and narrow.) It's weight is about 5 ounces which is the weight of a turnip according to one site. By the end of next week it's about 7 ounces! This week it's a turnip and next week it's a green pepper. Sounds more like I'm simmering a stew than baking buns!

My ultrasound is only 6 DAYS AWAY!!! I've been counting that down since they booked it at my doctor's office. I always wanted to wait but now I've gotten myself so excited about knowing that there is no way I could possibly wait. I'm very impatient that way. Dan's excited to know too...he even got the day off work for it! Oh ya! My hubby got a job! He's training to be a teller at a credit union. Very exciting! So, Monday seems like it's really far away right now, but it will come! I hope I can sleep the night before!

Well, I've got batteries for the camera so I'll keep you updated with belly pics! Keep checking in!

I know!! :( I think life was just too busy...I hate how it gets that way! Do you think you'll make it back here for a visit anytime in the next few years? If we can I would LOVE to come out for Blaine's graduation next year...but that's thinking really far ahead! LOL!

p.s. I'm REALLY excited too!!!
