18 weeks 3 days and showing

My girlfriends are all very curious to see how I'm growning and what I look like pregnant. I'm the first of my 5 best friends to be expecting a baby! So here is what I look like. It may not look like much of a change but I can assure you that my pants don't fit and I can only wear knit shirts. Button down shirts are out of the question unless I start raiding Phillip's side of the closet!

I feel really good. My sciatica has seemed to nearly disappear this week which is good because I haven't had any PT this week. I have a regular check up on Tuesday and then we have the "BIG" ultrasound and will learn the gender of our little peanut.

Peanut received his or her first gift, "Oh, Baby The Places You'll Go!" Gramma and Granpa Larson sent it along with some maternity clothes for me. We have read it to Peanut each day since we got the book and today Phillip decided we should also read Peanut a non-traditional children's text, The Declaration of Independence. I guess it's good to let Peanut know what he or she is in for now!
