I thought I'd go ahead and do an update because I finally feel like a human again! After 2 months of feeling nauseous and 3 weeks of a lung infection/IV's, I finally feel great. I'm ready to eat, gain some weight, and most importantly- shop for baby stuff! So if you haven't heard from me in a while I apologize, but I am finally ready to re-enter the world :).

I will include a couple of belly shots, but as you can see I am still pretty small! I can definitely tell, but I think it's still too risky for strangers to ask if I'm pregnant. I stick it out as far as I can though, especially after a big meal when I really look pregnant, so I'm hopeful that people will start noticing soon! I'll be 17 weeks on Sunday.

The whole family is coming up Easter weekend to celebrate my birthday with me, and I'm ready to put them to work. We are moving the guest room into the office, so my mom and I will be painting that and the nursery, and I'll update with pictures as soon as I can! I'm in the process of picking out cribs/dressers/changing tables and will probably order those soon, so I'm really excited about that. And Mike will be excited to have it ordered too- he just loooves shopping for baby furniture :P.

I think I felt the baby kick for the first time last night. For the past couple of weeks, I've been lying in bed trying to feel something before sleep every night, and I felt something last night that was definitely new. I felt it about 3 times in 10 minutes, it was really cool!

Last but not least, since a lot of people have been asking about names, we are *pretty* sure that her name will be Madeline Grace, and we'll call her Maddie. That's been our favorite name for a while, so unless we hear a name that we like more, that will be it!
