17 weeks

What a crazy week!  We went to look at houses last Saturday.  That was fun but a LONG day and by the end I had a headache that wouldn't go away.  Then, Tuesday I had a doctor's appointment.  I think I cried about 4 times before I even made it to the appointment!  Not about anything important but it just sent me over.  While we were there, my doctor asked me if seeing gender a little early would make my day better.  Um, YES!!!  So, we found out that day.  :-) Sweet profile shot!
 The next morning, David sent a surprise sausage biscuit to my clinic by the resident.  YUM!  So good.  Then, this weekend my parents came for Easter.  We went BACK to a few houses and out to eat.  Then, Saturday we did a gender reveal.  I was beat by the end of Saturday but it was a really good weekend.  Some point soon I'm going to have to figure out what to do about clothes. The bottom picture is actually the day BEFORE this first shot.  Depends on what I wear as to how much I "show."

Due Date: September 25, 2014
How Far Along: 17 weeks (and 3 days)
Fruit/Veggie: Pomegranate/Turnip about 5-6 inches long, 4.5 ounces
Gender: We had a surprise ultrasound on Tuesday!  Check back for gender reveal.  :-)
 Exercise: Still exercising almost daily.  I get out of breath faster but still going strong.  :-)
Sleep: Sleeping well.  I haven't had to get up much during the night recently.  I am getting tired earlier, though.

Aversions: coffee, raw spinach
Cravings: sausage biscuits, cheez-itz, apples

What I love: Sharing the gender with our family!  My awesome doc who let me see my baby early!
What I miss: sleeping on my stomach, enjoying coffee, having clothes that fit
What I'm looking forward to: a new "to us" house hopefully soon, having some comfortable clothes, shopping and planning for this sweet baby, picking a name!!!!!
What I'm thankful for: generous friends offering to share maternity clothes, my sweet husband who got a sausage biscuit for me last Wednesday, went to the store before church to get me a banana because we ran out and I wanted one for breakfast, the past weekend with my family, and MOST of all the sacrifice that Jesus made by giving His life on the cross to take the punishment for our sins so that we could be redeemed if we but believe...and that he DEFEATED death and LIVES so that we can live!
