the bump

19 May

In the last two weeks, I feel like my belly has quadrupled in size.  Must be all the peanut butter, bananas, and frozen yogurt–can one make a healthy fetus on PB&B & fro-yo?  I’m now at 18 weeks, +8.7 pounds (but it feels/looks like I’ve gained much more), and into a new wardrobe.  John, best husband on the planet that he is and having far better taste than I, went shopping with me (a.k.a. practically kidnapped me) this afternoon.  (I was/am too lazy and preoccupied to go on my own…I hate shopping.)  I am so happy that I went.  I had forgotten what it felt like to be comfortable in clothing.

We are dying to know the sex, but in the midst of crazy clinic schedules (mine and John’s), I was unable to schedule the anatomy scan until 22 weeks.  One of my college roommates (who’s due about a month before me) commented on the up side: imagine how much more developed he/she’s going to be!  So much more human-like!  It’ll be such a trip to compare him/her to our last snapshot at 13 weeks.

    You look *amazing*! Can’t wait to see you, John, and the bump – will you find out boy or girl before the 16th?

      You are too sweet! YOU, my dear, are the one who is absolutely stunning, and I cannot wait to see you on the 16th!!! Most beautiful bride ever! We should find out on the 15th, but we can wait to reveal until the 18th if you like 🙂 xoxo

        No, you must tell everyone (well, if you want!). Absolutely no sitting on important information!

        Thank you! But it’s your weekend, so you reserve the right to change your mind…or we could just tell you first 🙂
