17 Weeks!!!

Today I am 17 weeks pregnant. OMG! I am so excited to be saying that. I have been wanting to be a Mum for so long and can't wait for the day that I get to hold that perfect little baby in my arms.

I woke up yesterday with a belly that seemed to grow over night. I couldn't believe it! My Mum was actually the one to notice it first when I went over to pick her up in the morning to help me do some wedding shopping. After she pointed out the noticeable mound protruding from my dress I looked down at my belly and was like "where did that come from!". It was so funny cause It seemed like I just popped! I walked around in shock all day at the now obvious pregnant belly I'm sporting. I had the biggest smile on my face and couldn't help, but rub the place where I new my precious baby was lying.

Alex was in shock too when he came home from work and I showed him what I had been growing. He gave me the happiest smile then leaned over and gave my belly a big kiss, which I loved.

This is a pic of bub from our first scan at 12 weeks. I am sure it is a lot bigger now though


This is Alex and I proudly showing of the scan pics. Seeing our baby for the first time was magical

It's becoming more and more real with every day, Shell. I'm so excited for both you and Alex and I can't wait to hold my first grand-child in my arms.

Love you heaps,
Mum xo

Aww! I think we are about 9 days apart. I'm technically due on Dec. 12, but you know how due dates are... I think only a small fraction of women actually give birth on their due dates.

I'm only getting one ultrasound (I think), and it's not for another 3 weeks! I can't wait to see our little baby's first picture! :) It will be so exciting, especially because by 21 weeks it will be so big, and we will find out boy or girl!

I know Mum!!! It's sooo exciting! I could feel bubs moving in the middle of the night last night and I just had to hug my belly, lol.


Kristina - thanks for the comment back. You are right, I think it's less then 5% of all women deliver on their due date.
I was suppose to only get one ultra sound too, but we had to get one to make sure bubby was ok cause we had a little scare. We are also getting a 20 week scan and can't wait to find out what we are having.
