It's BUMP day

Well ladies, just so you all don't think I am lying when I say I am not really showing, I thought I would share my first bump pics with you on the beautiful (well at least here in GA) Friday afternoon!

I am 18 weeks, 5 days today! Sunday I will officially be 19 weeks and in 11 days, we find out what we are having! Either a sweet little boy or a princess of a girl :) Either way this child will be loved beyond measures and raised in a good ol' southern Christian household! WE CAN'T WAIT!

We do have names picked out, but I won't be sharing those just yet! I have no idea about nursery ideas. I have a few boy things in my head but I am just not sure about a little girl!
People keep asking me, "Do you think it's a girl or boy?" Honestly, I am really not sure. I have had dreams of a boy (twice) but the heartbeat was 154 so everyone keeps saying "Oh it's a girl!" But I don't buy into that wives tale because I know several people who's sweet little boys were basically running a marathon! We just want a healthy sweet baby! Either gender will be thrilling and a blessing!

As far as my bump is concerned, it's growing... and I am officially grown out of my pre-pregnancy jeans. I bought a Bella Band and can wear my normal pants and skirts (well my 10s anyway) with the Bella Band! But I do have a couple of pairs of pregnancy pants and dresses. And I am enjoying wearing those LOTS with my new expansion! ha

But here are my belly pics ladies :) Have a fabulous weekend. I will be working on my house all weekend!!! Lots of progress will be made! Hugs girls!

PS-Be looking for a post next week about my pregnancy workouts! It was a tough transition but I am making it :)



This was 17 weeks! (Pardon my nastiness-just home from the gym)

18.5 weeks here! My bump is starting to appear but it's not really noticeable yet!

SOOOOOOOOO EXCITING!!! You look simply great! My SIL is 5'8" and didn't show with her first pregnancy until she was almost 24 weeks -- I think some of it has to do with your muscles are still tight and some with your height -- Either way...... You have a precious baby in there!!! YAY!

I love the bump! You look so cute in those pics :) I so wish I could come help you decorate and paint things - haha. However, I think you do a pretty awesome job on your own. Maybe I can make it over to GA for a visit sometime. By the way - thanks for being a great friend, especially when I'm feeling down. It means a lot!

I wish my belly was that little. I started showing super early, but it didn't help that this is baby #2 and I never had a flat belly after the 1st. Your bump is super cute and it will only get cuter.

My baby's heartbeat has been a consistent 155... I'm trying not to believe that wives tale because we were hoping for a boy, but we will love another girl all the same, that IS what we're used to after all and already have a ton of girl clothes. Congrats on finding out super soon what you're having. We won't find out until June 11th.

I'm just the MOM said...

Lucky lucky you! Oh I can't wait to find out if you're having a boy or (fingers crossed) a girl!

The Ross Family said...

Kitty Cat said...

Your bump is tiny, but I believe that from now on it grows and grows, so have patience. But I understand, I also want to "show" and look pregnant. I'm just getting a bump now. It's taken ages. But at least you don't feel all uncomfortable and heavy with aches and pains...and may I just say that you still have a great figure! You said you had gained all this weight, but I don't see it on you!!!

KrissyBo. said...

Girl, you look amazing!! I cannot wait to read what workouts you are doing! We just found out about 2 weeks ago that we are expecting our second in January...so I cannot wait to see your workout post! ;) Second babies always show sooner...

Congrats again, you're a doll! :)
