17 Weeks!

How far along? 17 weeks : )


Baby's size? Well, the books/articles I've read says 5 ounces and about 5 inches. However, the ultrasound tech told us she was measuring 8 ounces!!! Whoa, baby! Let's slow down a little : )

Weight Gain? I hate to admit this but 9 pounds : / I guess I'm just playing catch up since I lost weight to begin with. But still, that's a lot for only this far along! Hopefully it will slow down just a bit.

Maternity clothes? Some maternity, some regular

Stretch marks? Not yet, but I know they're coming. I already feel stretched out, I don't even want to think about what I will look/feel like full term!

Belly button in or out? In

Sleep? Better than it has been, except when I work. I am waking up super early in the mornings though. I guess the good Lord is just preparing me : )

Foods I am loving? I'm eating lots more these days. My favorite would probably still have to be potatoes, in any form...

Foods I am hating? Nothing I can think of that I didn't hate before I was pregnant

Best moment this week? Finding out the baby looks healthy and that it's a GIRL!!!

Movement? Not yet : (

Symptoms? Still some minor headaches and pretty sleepy...MUCH better than the past 16 weeks!! YAY!

Gender? GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I miss? Nothing really

What I'm looking forward to? Feeling her move!

Milestone: Finding out the gender

Emotions: Happy, Happy, Happy!!!!



17 Weeks










We Are Tickled...

PINK!!!!!!!!!

We found out last Thursday (on Papa Coop's birthday!) that Baby Coop is a little GIRL!!!!!!!! We are just SO excited! We don't have many girls (especially on Mikey's side) in the family so we are so happy to be having us a litttle Coop girl : ) I am already dreaming of bows and shoes!!! We have a few names in mind, but haven't made a final decision yet. I just feel so scared to pick a name, ha! It really is such a BIG decision!

I am feeling SOOOOO much better these days! So, hopefully I will get back into a regular blogging pattern! I have been terrible with my weekly prego updates and pictures. I haven't taken any belly pictures since 8 weeks! So sad! But to be honest you can just now see that I am getting a "bump." It's been slow-growing so far. Which isn't all that bad I don't guess...

We were planning on waiting until Christmas morning to look at the gender, but when Mikey found out we were having the ultrasound a week early, he just could NOT wait!!! So we found out during the scan! SO exciting!!! So here are some ultrasound pictures from our 17 week ultrasound, which is when we found out she was indeed a girl.



Precious!


100% definitely a little girl : )



Cutest foot I've EVER seen!



I can't wait to meet her!
