Well I finally did it; I went out and bought 3 little precious sleepers for the babe. They are so cute and tiny. One is pink and white striped with an embroidered bunny on it, one is yellow and green with elephants all over it and the third is a white velour-ish sleeper with teddy bears and bunnies on it and the feet have little teddy bear faces on them. So cute!

My friend at work also said that it looks like I’m starting to show. I hope so. I can’t wait to have a big round belly. I have total belly envy. Everywhere I go I see pregnant women with these big round perfect bellies and I cannot wait to have one. I have to duck my head so that I stop myself from staring. It used to be that seeing pregnant women just hurt too much and I would duck my head to avoid having to think about the thing I wanted most in the world.

I’ll be 17 weeks on Thursday and my next appointment is on August 4th. I’ll be able to get another peek at this little girl of mine. I can’t wait!

Over the weekend we went to my brother's cottage, it was a good time. It's a nice cottage and it's older with a lot of room for improvement. The shoreline isn't ideal, but the water was warm and dogs seems to have a good time chasing sticks and swimming. The only thing is that I didn't sleep very well while I was there and now I'm paying the price. I'm just exhausted. Maybe the babe is going through a growth spurt and that's adding to the exhaustion. Next weekend we're going to my cousin's new home for a bbq and a swim. Seems like we've been pretty spoiled and busy lately with all of our visiting. I just love the summer!

sounds like a great weekend on the water! your belly will come soon enough and you'll pop out fast at some point. I feel like it happened overnight!

Well done petal! Delighted all is well and I'm sure you'll have a round belly very soon. Can't wait to hear about your next appointment.

Love, Fran
