A lot has been happening in my belly lately. I’m 18 weeks pregnant and baby is huge! In fact, baby is big enough to clearly tell on an ultrasound…
That we are having a little girl:
She was moving all around during the ultrasound!
Sucking her thumb:
Smiling?! (probably just yawning):
So cute! We are so excited. I had a “feeling” it was a girl, but not a super strong feeling or anything. And hey, I had a 50% chance of being right.
I will still get a full anatomy scan in a couple weeks when they measure all baby’s parts to make sure she is growing ok. But the sonographer told me she perused everything and that it all looks great, so there should be no surprises. Good news!
My belly is getting big!! Here I am last Friday:

Compare that 18 week picture to this old one taken at 13 weeks:
I feel like my belly got a lot bigger in the last week or so. I don’t know if I look obviously pregnant and not just chubby to people that don’t know me, I haven’t had anyone comment on it out in public or anything. But my friends have definitely commented this weekend when they saw me. Emily just said “Wow.” and Deana said “Look at you! You’re so pregnant!” ha! Love it.
I am almost halfway through this pregnancy and I feel right on track with everything. I’m feeling great and am so grateful for this healthy and happy experience.
One last picture- for Valentine’s Day, Zach bought a onesie for me/baby that says “I love my mom and dad.” Cute!
We immediately put it on our fat cat (who happened to have a birthday on February 14th as well. Happy 11th birthday big man!).
Turns out he’s more of a “12 months,” this “3 months” outfit was a bit snug:
Thank you for reading. Next post will be another running update! Have a great week everyone!
