21 weeks 5 days Belly Shot

Man on man, what a morning. I made sure to set a reminder on my phone so that I wouldn't forget to take a picture. And I didn't have a lot of time to take a bunch of them because I needed to get my butt to work, so it isn't the best picture. Oh well. I think I look smaller here than I did last week. Crazy because I feel like I am a million times bigger this week than last week. Either way, I have been eating well and taking good care of myself to make sure my little girl is getting all that she needs.

It is still so incredible to say "she" and "her". I love it. My friend that is a month ahead of me is having a little boy and she calls her little one an "it" still so often. I am so in love with this little girl already. I am so excited and am enjoying being pregnant so much. I have bought her a couple of things with my favorites being a cute little sweat outfit and a little onesie that says, "I love my big sister." Swae was so excited when she saw that one and read the words to herself. Her face lit up like a Christmas tree. I was at Babies-R-Us the other day and saw so many cute outfits and so many things that referred to big sisters, mommy, and daddy...but nothing for big brothers. So I am going to have to do some research. Both kids talk about their little sister all the time and they have quite the imagination on what they are going to do when she comes. They aren't enjoying the fact that she isn't 'out' yet. It thrills me to know that they are excited. Both of them want to hold her and feed her and they are going to play house where Swae is the mom and Seth is the dad. It's just too damn cute.

Everything is going well. I am getting lots of rest, eating healthy (aside from some Halloween candy!), and staying active. It is too cold now for me to want to be outside so it looks like I will be at the gym walking on the treadmill or doing the elliptical for some exercise.

I don't know that I ever saw I love my big brother either...but I got several things that say "I'm the little sister."

Anyway, girl clothes are SO much fun!

Don't forget to start stocking up on diapers and wipes NOW.

They have big brother stuff. I know they do. We had a few bibs that said I love my Big Brother, or something to that effect. You will find something!

I agree with Jiff, you can never have too many diapers. Start now.

You are one of those girls that will probably lose it all after birth and be back to your jeans in no time. Awesome prego body momma!
