17 weeks!

17 weeks and we have finally told the WORLD.
My friend Amber warned me that we'd break facebook with the announcement, but instead I broke my computer! haha seriously! Thankfully Lee is awesome and a genius and cleaned it up for me.  It works like a brand new machine!

Speaking of Lee - he now has 9 interview offers! yay!!

Back to baby talk.
Suddenly people I had no idea were even paying attention can see a "bump" and are making comments about my hips! haha!
apparently once you're pregnant your body and size is everyone else's business! ha!  Whatever, I don't mind... but I am getting nervous thinking about random people wanting to touch me.
Please don't touch my belly now, it's just a little extra layer of fat, not a nice round, firm bump.

Everything is still pretty much the same (except I updated my blog! see!)
I'm still feeling good and pretty much the same as I did pre-pregnancy.  I notice my lower back and hips pop more than usual.  Thankfully I work for a chiropractor! I get adjusted several times a week since my body is no longer "holding" or staying in place.  And from things I've read the chiropractor can really help prepare your pelvis for delivery!  Here's to hoping.

 My sister however gave birth to a perfect sweet little lady this week!  Rynnlee Kate was born on 9/26 weighing 7lbs 2 ounces!  That would be the perfect size, eh?  Lee and I were both like 9lbs, yikes!  Praying for a long, thin baby with small shoulders. ;)
She is beyond beautiful and has me hoping even more so for a little boy.  I'd like the avoid the comparisons to the gorgeous Miss Rynnlee. hahaha  Just kidding of course!  (but seriously.....)

How far along: 17 weeks 
Total weight gain: 4 lbs still according to my scale. 
Maternity clothes: not yet, pants still fitting easily, but some shirts are out because they just make me look chubby 
Stretch marks: no
Sleep: no problems at all, not even having to get up to pee, weird. 
Best moment of this week: becoming an aunt- again! I have 10 nieces and a nephew now!!  Baby Coghill will be my parent's 12th grandchild!! 
Miss anything:  I sorta am missing Lee and I having our little secret... now everyone knows!  But I don't miss much of anything else at this point.
Movement: no, I think so sometimes but I don't think it's the baby exactly.. maybe more like my uterus stretching. haha 
Food cravings: none lately. 
Anything making you queasy or sick:  nope.  
Have you started to show yet: not really... I mean it looks like I gained 5lbs for sure, but I can easily suck it in to look normal. 
Gender: unknown 
Labor signs: no thank goodness 
Belly button in or out: in 
Wedding rings on or off: On 
Happy or moody most of the time: ok so... this weekend was the first time that I've noticed myself feeling moody.  Poor Lee. He got snapped at a couple times and then I cried one day a lot over something that wasn't that big of a deal. 
Looking forward to: getting a bump already!  I might regret this later... but I'd like to actually look pregnant at some point.  I need to get in on the perks! haha

I love this weekly updates! It almost makes me miss being pregnant ;). And yay for Lee and interviews!

Fine fine, but at least I knew SOMETHING would break! ;) And Facebook did totally break. People went nuts with love for you, Lee and baby Coghill!

Love you and your little one! I don't think your baby will be 9 lbs don't worry. <3

Oh, the pregnancy comments just get weirder and weirder!! It's like once you're pregnant, people lose all filter and say whatever is on their mind! The best ones yet for me have been 1-Brad's grandma asking me if I was sure I wasn't having twins (and I was only 20weeks at that point!) and 2- a drunk client telling me how sexy my belly was! Get ready, they just keep on coming!

And, Amber is right people went nuts and totally love you guys! :)
