Our 2nd prenatal appointment was this past week. We met another great doctor in our practice, Dr.Wilson, and we adored her! Katie, my sister-in-law, was also able to come with us. She is a trained doula and will be us through the whole process so we were really excited to include her! I made it through all my blood work and we were in for a great surprise! Dr. Wilson had enough time in her schedule to give us a surprise ultrasound!
We can definitely see our little peanut growing now....arms, legs and heart are all showing up now!
The best part of it all was that Peanut was moving all over the place-dancing up a storm!
Here's a close up of the baby......

I really thought how can it get any better, how can I deserve so much when I'm able to do so little right now.
Well it got better....the other part of these past few weeks is suddenly out of nowhere, I find myself struggling to fit into my clothes....not near maternity clothes yet but certainly not able to button my normal size pants....that's hard on a girl when you're already feeling sick and yucky!
Leave it to Adam....I walk in after work last week, he's cooking dinner.."Honey, there may or may not be a little gift for you in that closet over there! I'm just sayin'..." I squealed in joy! What could he have done???
I opened up a bag full of goodies.....A gorgeous brand spankin' new pair of black flats for work, 3 really cute and colorful shirts to help me transition out of old clothes and into my new body, my first maternity tank top to help me layer into the fall season and the gift of all gifts, my Bella Band! It's been such a blessing to still be able to wear my old pants to work that I love without having to worry about the pressure on my growing belly because the stretchy band is holding them in place for me! Best product ever! I'll get plenty of use from it as I continue to grow this little munchkin' as well as post-baby body while I'm trying to transition back to my old clothes....
You've outdone yourself baby....I am in awe of you every single day...your energy, your strength, your supportive nature, your kind words that make me feel gorgeous in the midst of all these crazy changes happening...You're gonna be one hell of a father. You make me proud to call you my partner in crime.
I appreciate it and I know our little peanut does too...
PS.....I have not gotten near as big as the belly in the picture....do not be fooled readers, I'm not quite there yet!
