17 weeks + Better Bump View.

Last night, I swear I felt my stomach growing. Not like the typical weird, inside stretching...but it felt like someone was inside me, pushing my stomach out as far as it could go. Well. I guess there kind of is someone doing that. But, you know what I mean. It was weird. And painful. 

I mentioned last post that I think I am maybe starting to feel baby. That maybe is leaning more towards a yes, but it's pretty infrequent. I really think it is the baby, though. I definitely feel little thumps and flips occasionally. And they are things I've never felt before in my life. So I'm thinking baby! I can't wait for it to start happening more often. 

Wanna know something funny? At the beginning of this pregnancy, I mentioned that we had our names picked out...they have both since changed. Ha. We changed our boy's first name + took the girl's middle name for the boy's instead. Then, we're kind of undecided on the girl's name. We heard a name and both really liked it, so now it's in the running. Top of the list even. Actually, when we first heard it, Josh really liked it, and I was like, "You're an idiot." Then, one day, it popped in my head and I've never stopped thinking about it. I think it may be the one. haha.

Remember how I said that we kinda/maybe/sorta want a boy? And we really think it's a boy? Well, in the past couple of weeks, I've been getting weird feelings that it's a girl. Either way, I'll be right. (ha.) But, it's really weird. Because, for a few months now, I've just thought boy. Never doubted it. And all of a sudden, I'm occasionally getting strong girl feelings. I think it's maybe me realizing that I don't really care what it is either way. :)

Which reminds me! We'll be finding out what this little human is in 13 days! I. Cannot. Wait.
What do you think we're having? Answer in my poll on the sidebar!



  1. Go with your gut... we were CERTAIN it was a boy. then, the week of the ultrasound, i doubted it.. "there's no way we're really going to get what we want!" we did. and i was right all along.

    either way, to me, that bump looks like a dude :)

  2. you will be excited either way!!
