Thank goodness I went on that shopping spree last weekend because suddenly, I have a bump! Buttoning my pants is a thing of the past (with the exception of my gigantic, old-school boy scout pants) and new bras have tremendously helped my larger ladies (big sarcastic thanks to those of you who pointed that out ;) Things, they are a-changing!
The shirt came from a thrift store for $3 and is a brand new Coldwater Creek shirt that is a few sizes larger than I normally wear. It's got a nice weight to it that should be nice to wear while I can this summer! The skirt was actually some old late 70s polyester grandma pants that I picked up at that huge school garage sale on Saturday for $.50. I just picked out the inseams, sewed everything up and shortened it to my desired length! Although, looking at these photos, I just might shorten it a bit more. The waistband is a bit larger which leads me to believe I'll be wearing this skirt for a while :) The shoes are Toms from a few years ago and I randomly decided to Heidi-braid my hair. It's all sorts of kinky today from it :)
And there's the famous bump! I can still suck in and when I do, the mister jokes that I'll hurt the baby which makes me laugh :) I doubt I'll be able to do that much longer though!
Yesterday was a pret-ty exciting day for us! We found out the gender of our baby! I haven't had a feeling either way but EVERYONE, with the exception of the mister, has said that they KNEW it was a boy. The night before our appointment, I actually had a dream (my first 'I have a baby dream') that it was a boy named Austin (where that name came from, I have no idea) so I guess from hearing it constantly, I was convinced it was a boy. Plus, not going to lie, I really wanted a girl so I figured it would probably be a boy for that very reason! Don't get me wrong, I would have been thrilled either way but I don't know how to make boy things! :) So just a few minutes into our appointment, the technician said, "well, that's definitely....dramatic pause...A GIRL!!!" I was absolutely SHOCKED! Even teared up which shocked me even more! We also found out that, based on her size, I'm a week further along than we thought which means that I'm starting my 19th week today. I'm almost halfway done and almost five months along! Unreal!
So now we begin the journey of preparing for our baby GIRL!
