17 Weeks

Thursday, March 15, 2012

This week has been a good one.  Last weekend my hubs was kind enough to venture to the Mall of America with me so I could go to Gap Maternity. I was on a mission to find cute skinny jeans.  I picked up a regular dark wash and then a pair of white ones for the spring/summer.  I love the way they fit.  I have read some reviews on how most people don't like the way Gap maternity skinny jeans fit so I was nervous trying them on.  But I had success.  I scooped up two shirts as well as soon as I learned that everything was 30% off.  Must have been my lucky day.  And for no good reason at all the sales girl who rang me up gave me an extra 10% off... just because.  

Obviously this made me very happy. 

The hubs was also very happy with my savings. 

We also went to Ikea to get some ideas for the house.  I found a huge floor mirror that I love.  It was $200.  Not too shabby since I was convinced I was going to buy one from West Elm for $350.  Not anymore.  Thank you Ikea for saving me $150. 

This week I've been feeling really good.  And it's just in time since we are gearing up for a busy weekend in Chicago.  Lots of traveling is in store for us as well as visiting with many family members we haven't seen since Christmas.  It's going to be fun.  Nobody has really seen me with a belly yet so it will be fun to see their reactions. 

Today marks week 17.  Baby N is now the size of an onion!  I still haven't felt him or her yet.  I am getting really anxious for that time to come.  I have definitely popped more this week.  Although there are some days when I definitely feel larger than others.  2 of my co-workers were sweet enough to tell me this week that I am such a cute little pregnant lady and also that I'm all belly.  Keep the compliments up ladies! :)

How far along? 17 Weeks
