I'm officially 17 weeks preggers .. here's my first actual belly picture. I finally feel like I'm getting out of that awkward chubby stomach phase:) I do have to tell you that I'm one of those women that loves being pregnant just about every part of it. Last Monday night, I was reading the kids a book when all of a sudden I felt the baby.. I said oh wow and grabbed Brooke and Parker and told them I felt flutters and Parker with his most excited voice said "is it a butterfly in there?" Brooke and I died laughing. Then they wanted to know if that meant the baby was coming and I said no we have many months until then. Then a few days later, on the 22nd I was lying on the couch reading while the kids were napping when I felt the flutters like crazy on my left side then I push my hand into my side and all of a sudden there was a strong kick back. my heart sank .. yea! I did it over and over about 5 times she kicked right back at me. I just don't think there is any better thing in pregnancy than feeling your baby move. It's absoultly amazing!
