17 Weeks...

Well friends... here we are... 17 weeks. Why is this such a milestone? Because we find out what the gender is SATURDAY!! Oh my goodness, I have been counting down the days since I first found out I was pregnant. Saturday morning around 8:30, Jordan and I, along with my parents, grandparents, siblings, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law... will load up and head to Atlanta. I really can't describe to you the feeling in my stomach. It seems to be a little bit of everything... slightly nervous, very anxious, excited, overwhelmed... yeah, a little bit of everything.

As far as Peanut's developments (I can't believe this is the last post where I will call the baby Peanut!)... All the "big stuff" is pretty much developed... now Peanut is working on "packing on the pounds"! (Unfortunately, so is Momma!) Peanut is really working on his/her sucking and swallowing reflexes.. his/her fingernails and toenails are beginning to grow from their nail beds.. Peanut weighs about 5 ounces and is a little over 5 inches long!

Okay... just for fun, I want to see how many people think Peanut is going to be a girl and how many think Peanut will be a boy! I've added a poll on the right-hand side of the blog for you to vote! My appointment is at 12:00 Eastern time, but I won't have access to a computer until later that afternoon. I promise to post Peanut's gender, name, and pictures as soon as I can! Yay for Saturday!!!


  1. I think its a girl!!!! I can't wait to hear on Saturday!!!

  2. It's a boy!! (we need this family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) But, Hope would love a girl cousin to play dolls with too. :)
