Week 17 and Week 18

Week 17 went by quickly!  Dawson was the size of a turnip and I felt her move for the first time last Wednesday, March 14th!  It's a very subtle flutter.  So neat.  Things are becoming so real.  I can't wait until Jack can feel her move on the outside of my stomach!  I have been feeling great and nothing much has changed.
Week 18 is now here!  I can't believe I am two weeks away from the halfway point!  22 weeks to go!  I am feeling fabulous and buying cute outfits left and right for our sweet girl!  We are planning on painting the nursery in a few weeks then will be ordering more furniture for the room.  I am also having her bedding made, which I will be ordering in the next few weeks also.  I can't wait to post pictures of the nursery when it's all finished!  I hope it looks as cute as the vision in my head.  Dawson is the size of a bell pepper this week.  I am still feeling her flutter every once in awhile.  I am growing, but I feel like I start the day off skinny and then I get bigger as the day goes on.  I still haven't "popped" yet.  I am pretty excited for that!  This week I am going to start letting Dawson listen to music.  My friend Madeleine loaned me tummy speakers so Dawson could listen to some good tunes in the womb.  I'm a big country fan, so I am sure it will be a mix of that, Christmas and Christian - maybe we will throw in some 80's and Rap so she can hear a little bit of her dad's favorite, too.
One more thing, I'm pretty sure Dawson has almost one of every DVF item I recently posted about.  Mom and Grammy went a little crazy :)

Happy Monday!

  1. Are you serious?!! Oh my gosh, I'm cracking up about the tummy speakers. You're going to have to let me know if she likes it. =) I'm thinking I need to plug my iPod into Jack's iTunes. John's Indy stuff isn't really doing it for me. =)
