My pregnancy journey has been a truly unique and personal one – that’s how it is for all of us though, isn’t it? We all experience this amazing time a little bit differently. Now that we are in the 18th week and getting closer to the mid point, things are really starting to hit me – the entire reality of being pregnant.
The main exciting thing that happened this week is that MY BELLY FINALLY POPPED – a little bit, but enough for me to notice. Not to brag or anything, but I’ve always had a flat stomach, so for the first little bit I just felt like I was gaining weight. But, now the belly is a real thing; it’s there constantly and I am in love with it.
Along with this beautiful belly popping, I now am not comfortable in my high waisted jeans, and just find it hard having anything tighter on my waist. I guess I’m lucky it’s summer and I can wear flowy dresses because I just can’t bring myself to buy maternity clothes. So last Friday I took a trip to the mall and picked up a few cute flowy summer dresses – not from the maternity section!
The next thing coming up this week; we are going for an ultrasound and can find out the gender of Baby Wiercinski – BUT we still can’t make up our minds if we want to know or if we want it to be a surprise! My husband is pretty set on wanting it to be a surprise; I’m on the fence still but starting to feel stronger about finding out the gender. What to do? What to do?
