Bump Alert!

This is for all you out there (my sisters!) who didn't believe me that I have a belly now!

No, I am not trying to stick it out or arch my back! ;)
I also just want to throw out there that I am a normal girl, with a normal body type. Unlike my sister, Chelsea, who is 5'11'' and looked pretty much like this the day she delivered. So do not compare me to her! I will probably get huge!
I am 18 weeks today and here are a few updates:
  • I am eating ALL DAY LONG but still weigh 8 lbs less than I did at my first doctor's appt. (which I'm sure will change shortly!)
  • Feeling MUCH better than I was a month ago, as long as I take my Zofran everyday
  • Craving Mexican food- specifically Cafe Rio
  • Get a bad headache a least once a day (side effect of the Zofran) and my back hurts pretty much 24/7 already
  • Am ready to go bed by 8 pm, but I'm usually still at school at this time
  • Find it incredibly difficult to get up every morning and poor Brandon has to go through about a 15 min routine to get me outta bed
  • Have the craziest dreams every night. You wouldn't even believe me if I tried to explain them
  • The sight of pizza still makes me gag
  • My sense of smell was pretty good before (my AZ friends used to always make fun of me for it) but now it is incredible! I can especially smell people's body odor from a mile away..unfortunately.

And the best news of all, we are finding out what we're having on February 16th!!

So leave your guesses!

I have felt deep down since the day I found out I was pregnant that it is a girl, but I've had about 6 dreams where it has been a boy so it probably is! I am just ready to stop calling it, "it!"

SO exciting! Glad to hear things are calming down and you are feeling better! :) Can't wait to hear what it is. (you find out on my sister kayla's bday!)

Julie and Kyle said...

its a girl. and let me know when that belly becomes impressive. gavin looks like that after dinner. :)

John and Caroline said...

WOW are huge!! :) OK just cute! I am going to send girl vibes but really I just am hoping for 100% healthy. Can't wait!!

Chelsea said...

A. you aren't huge. B. i was bigger than that the day i delivered (just a little, jk ;) ) C. i say boy but actually have no idea, just think it should be so he can have fun boy cousins, if it's a girl i'm afraid she's going to get beat up by Carter and Luke a lot!

Beka and Eric Sorensen said...

Adorable tummy!! :D I'm so glad you're feeling better. Hopefully you three can join us at the cabin sometime soon! P.S. From the time Eric gave me the news, my radar went...GIRL!! Can't wait to find out!!!

haley said...

You are too cute, Linds!! I'm happy for you two! (Well, three, actually!) I will put my money on: GIRL!
Congrats, again, cutie!

Greg and Gwen said...

I can't believe it! You really do have a cute little bump ;)

So glad you are feeling better these days. I was thinking about you the other day and wondering how you're feeling, so thanks for the update.

I craved mexican food BIG time with Wyatt's pregnancy and now this one (but not my girl pregnancy's - It always made me gag when I was preggo w/Lydia) so I'm going to guess BOY since you're craving it too ;) Plus it would be fun for our little guy to have a playmate so close in age!

You are so cute!! I love the stage between 5-7 months when you feel good and arent too big yet and look cute.

Katie and Eric said... look so cute! I think you are going to have a boy because Gwen is and then they can be friends.:)

Melissa said...

Yay! Someone who actually shows that they're pregnant for once in this family! You look great!

Angelique said...

I remember being that "big" and thinking, "I'm TOTALLY showing". When you're are the one looking down at your tummy is seems so much bigger. Cute baby bump.

And I hope you do get huge. Then you can experience all of the awkwardness of turning around and bumping into walls and counters or even people with your belly. haha.. Being pregnant is so great..can't wait for you to feel the baby kick if you haven't already, it's so neat.

I am guessing a boy!

Aleasha said...

I don't think I ever said congrats-that is so exciting! Your bump is very small and cute. Good luck with the pregnancy and I'm glad you're feeling better!
