Belly Update!

Here’s the first of my belly pictures to be posted over the course of the next few months. I took this on Monday (17w2d). I had to improvise with my phone in the bathroom because I couldn’t get the photography set up in the basement to work and Tim was already gone to work. We took a photo at 13 weeks, but that must not be uploaded yet. We are still getting used to documenting this!

As you can see, my belly is definitely starting to protrude. I’m still mostly wearing pre-pregnancy clothes, but I do have a few maternity items that I incorporate into my wardrobe during the week. I realize more and more each day when I wake up that it won’t be long before I’ll have to give in and actually go shopping for some essentials. I’m hoping to hold off a little longer, though, until some stuff goes on sale / the stores put out the fall and winter clothes, since that is when I’ll be at my largest .

All is going well with the pregnancy. There are some days that are harder than others, but over all I’ve had a pretty textbook pregnancy and I’m thankful for that! Our next OB appointment is on August 5th – at which time we’re hoping we’ll be able to find out the sex of the baby! After that we’ll hopefully be able to start planning the nursery and really go into baby mode. I’ve been reading all sorts of consumer reports, etc. on the best baby products and feel pretty informed in terms of knowing what to get and what to skip…although I’m sure it’ll be pretty overwhelming when we finally do go to register! I also spend a lot of time after work watching A Baby Story and Bringing Home Baby and pretty much any other “baby” program on TV that I can find. Although I always liked watching these before I was pregnant, they are certainly much more relevant now and I think in the long run they’ll help prepare me a little more…

Thanks for checking in!
