I felt the baby. IT'S ALIVE! Oh my god, I can't believe it. This is the coolest thing ever. I'm not feeling it super often, but if I'm still I can feel it. Hello baby! I also swear to god it kicked me when I took off my bella band yesterday. Kind of like, get me some room in here women and stop caring about your pants falling off. Sorry kid, pants win. I'm loving this.
17 weeks. It's 2010. Wow, my kid will never remember the 90's or the 00's, and they will sound as distant to him as the 60's and 70's sound to me. New year's was awesome, we went and hung out with my brother and his girlfriend, they are the awesome. We had a really great time and Chris was able to take advantage of having a sober cab, albeit a very tired sober cab. Creating life is exhausting people!
So the baby is doing well, I'm feeling pretty darn great. I've outgrown all but 2 pairs of my regular pants though, and some shirts have stopped fitting. I have not stepped on a scale in a month though. I'm scared. Sleep is weird, but it usually is for me. I have been trying to lay on my side, but sometimes wake up on my back. I got a pillow to help with it, and I have been sleeping on my side more consistently. I feel so guilty when I wake up on my back!
I'm really looking forward to our big u/s on the 12th. I can't wait to see the baby again, and find out 100% what we're having. EEEKKK!!
Today we're having a carpet guy come over for an estimate, going shopping for a crib, and going out to dinner with my family for my brother's birthday. It's going to be busy - which is ok, because yesterday even though we had the best of intentions, Chris and I literally never left the couch. It was also the awesome. I slept until 11:30 and still went to bed at 10 last night.
So things have been good, I can't believe I'm at 17 weeks already. 3 more weeks to half way!
