One more week!

I keep meaning to do a post about my pregnancy, but the weeks keep flying by and I never get around to it.

This picture was taken a week ago when I was 18 weeks. I'm a little bigger now, but I just got back from the gym and I'm kind of sweaty and gross (but not too sweaty because how sweaty can you get when you have to keep your heart rate down). So you'll have to forgive me for not taking an updated picture.
I've officially reached the point where I can't really button my jeans, but I'm not big enough for maternity jeans yet. So the only pants that are comfortable are pajama pants or sweats which I wear all the time - other than when I leave our house and I squeeze into my regular jeans.
Of course it's all worth it when I feel the little person inside me move around. It took a long time for me to feel Corbyn move. Or at least it took a long time for me to realize I was feeling him move. I don't remember feeling it before my 20-week ultrasound. So this time I was very pleasantly surprised to start feeling movement around 16 weeks. It's pretty strong and consistent now. Even Rog has felt it.
This pregnancy has been flying by. The last 3 weeks have been a little slow because I keep thinking about the ultrasound coming up, but I really can't believe I'm already almost half way!
Our ultrasound is next Thursday afternoon. I am so excited and nervous to find out if it is a boy or a girl. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for a girl. I just don't know if I'd be able to handle 2 crazy little boys running around. (Edda, I don't know how you do it!) But of course we will be happy with either. I'll update as soon as we find out!

I'm glad the lil' one is moving :)

The big question isn't "A Boy" or "A Girl" the big question is "A Mover" or "A Thinker" - hehe
