i know, i know... i did it again! i got waaay behind on my baby bird posts, but i am officially caught up now and i took my 19 weeks pictures today so that i can be on time with them from here on out. :) here goes...first off, let's back track to week 17.
here i am at 17 weeks. this week was spent working like crazy trying to get the update and new back end up and running. i bought a few things for the baby bird including a muslin baby blanket which i wish they made in big people size. it's the softest little thing. i also bought some cute cute liberty of london infant dresses and some matching big sister dresses. so cute!

this week was pretty much amazing! we went to see our possible new midwife. she is amazing and made us feel so comfortable. she listened to baby birds heartbeat and measured the baby bump. the little bird is quite healthy and everything looks great. we talked for a very long time about birthing options and about possibly having a home birth. this made me and the boy a little nervous but as she explained the process and the advantages, we have been really considering it. would love to hear from any of you who have had a home birth. i also have some momma friends who have been using cloth diapers, something i never dreamed of nor desired to try, but after hearing their stories and doing some research, we're considering trying them as well. they are really cute too, save you thousands and are so much better for the environment, so how could we not at least try em out?!
for my 18 week shoot i decided to make brownies. something i have been craving a lot of lately... sweets. although the midwife has encouraged to me not eat them and instead to increase my protein and iron intake. so i consider these to be sort of a 'good bye batch' since it looks like my future plates will be filled with nothing but nuts, vegetables, fish and chicken. :)

i'm feeling great so far this week although i am getting HUGE! nothing seems to fit quite right and i have to use rubber bands to expand my waistlines. i refuse to wear maternity clothes and it's kind of a fun challenge looking for things that fit comfortable and creating stylish outfits for my new momma body.
all caught up now! have a lovely rest of your weekend. xoxo.
