22 weeks, 18 to go…

by Mollie

As requested… 🙂

Just after we found out, about 4 weeks along:


And now….
4.5 months and 17 pounds (!!!) later:


My belly button has turned completely inside out, which is… different.  I don’t mind if people touch my belly but NOT my belly button, it feels too weird.

Natalie has been on a growth spurt this past week.  I can tell because:

1)  I have an insatiable appetite and the ability to eat huge amounts of food without getting full,

2)  I can feel Natalie moving around a lot stronger this week, including very distinct kicks and punches.

Last night Andy felt her kick for the first time!  So she really is getting bigger.  She should  weigh about a pound now.

    You look super. Seventeen pounds is not overly much. I would tell you how much I gained with most of mine, but I understand expectant mothers should not be subjected to extraordinary shocks….
