Big Baby

Our baby might be a biggin’. My doctor went over the ultrasound results with me, and said that she’s bigger than 77% of other babies at this point.

21.5 Weeks Pregnant
twenty one and a half weeks pregnant

I’m at the stage that the pregnancy books are referring to as “comfortably pregnant” or “cutely pregnant”. Awesome! Can’t wait for that uncomfortable, uncute part to start. Especially since I apparently have an amazon inside of me.

    Hahaha! That made me laugh. And the picture’s awesome.

    LOL – you read my mind with the “comfortable” bit! I’m dreading the third trimester if all the books consider the second tri to be all comfy and cozy.

    I too am carrying a biggin’ who likes to kick me “below the belt”. Nice.

    You look so great – love that dress!!

    You look so unimpressed with things. :D But you are lovely, and so is that necklace on you!

    psshhaw, they can’t really tell you know, i’ve heard so many ‘omgosh, my doc says this baby weighs 400 pounds’ stories and then post c-section (cuz baby was too big, see), the kid is this wee 5 pounds, 2 ounces. :)

  5. shana December 5, 2008 at 4:30 pm #

    the necklace is REALLY great on you… yay!

  6. j December 5, 2008 at 4:31 pm #

    I concur with the “cutely pregnant” part. You look great!

  7. Mikey December 5, 2008 at 4:46 pm #

    just so you know… you look AMAZING. i love your sense of style -dreamy- (dont think i thought i would ever say that about a pregnant woman’s wardrobe…)!

  8. Breakfast for Dinner December 5, 2008 at 4:46 pm #

    Aw! But you DO look super cute! :)

  9. lori December 5, 2008 at 5:01 pm #

    don’t stress out about it too much. docs can be so wrong on those things. i was told my first was well over 8 lbs, he came out 6 lbs 11 oz.

    and you look very cutely pregnant!

  10. Desiree Fawn December 5, 2008 at 5:09 pm #

    You are certainly cutely pregnant!

    I am at 33 weeks today and losing that cuteness, methinks. I’m more of a waddling, lycra wearing pregnant.

  11. danielle December 5, 2008 at 5:41 pm #

    you are too cute and i love your necklace!

  12. Anneke December 5, 2008 at 5:48 pm #

    okay, I have a request…
    every time you post a picture of yourself, you MUST tell us where you buy all your pretty dresses.

    I concur that you are very cutely pregnant!

  13. Heather December 5, 2008 at 5:53 pm #

    Very cutely pregnant! And I love your shoes :)

  14. Laura December 5, 2008 at 5:58 pm #

    Ditto, Jessica and Lori.

  15. Michelle December 5, 2008 at 6:06 pm #

    I had a 10 lb 12 oz baby… no GD, just a huge baby. My advice is to take the c-section if they offer it. I am only 5′ 3″ so they pretty much told me that was my only option. There are plusses though. My hubby wasn’t nearly as afraid of handling our son as he thought since he wasn’t as tiny as other newborns. And developmentally he’s advanced, he started walking at 8.5 months.

    Hang in there! And you are totally in the cute pregnant stage!

  16. laura December 5, 2008 at 6:40 pm #

    nicole, you are looking totally cute! :)

  17. Patricia Fontes December 5, 2008 at 7:08 pm #

    Beautiful picture! Love it!

  18. Bec December 5, 2008 at 8:17 pm #

    Cute and pregnant, I agree.
    And I love the ampersand on your wall.

  19. Meggan December 5, 2008 at 9:22 pm #

    You are so ridiculously adorable. I loooove your dresses and I like that you’re continuing to wear them during your pregnancy. I don’t know how you manage to find so many cute dresses.

  20. Valentina December 5, 2008 at 10:29 pm #

    You look so cute! and the dress is beautiful :)

  21. DecorPad December 5, 2008 at 11:05 pm #

    You look beautiful! Love the dress!

  22. Lindsay December 5, 2008 at 11:51 pm #

    Oh my god, WHERE did you get that ampersand? I have an um… odd obsession with them, and have about 8 scattered around our house right now, but none as big and LOVELY as that one!! You must share. :)

  23. Kristin December 5, 2008 at 11:58 pm #

    So happy for you!! You look way cute!! Love the dress too!!

  24. kerry December 6, 2008 at 12:57 am #

    Too funny. You look great. I have had three boys and everytime they told me I had a big baby…then I had a 7 pounder and couldn’t figure out why my ponch got sooo huge. It’s worth it though, and it’s all good in the end. I have blogged about some great baby stuff like babylegs, g diapers etc that you might like. Take care of yourself, you’re makin a miralce!

    You look lovely…my first baby weighed 11lb 8.5oz and the doctors guessed at 8lb! so I wouldn’t worry too much ;)

  26. Laura @ Move To Portugal December 6, 2008 at 7:00 am #

    what I meant to add on was that sometimes they get it wrong…

  27. Mandy December 6, 2008 at 12:10 pm #

    You look so adorable…love that dress! Hope the uncute, uncomfortable part is only the last few weeks for you. I had twins so mine was about the last 5 months. LOL :)

  28. Making it Lovely December 6, 2008 at 12:23 pm #

    Over 11 pounds! Eek!

    Lindsay, the giant ampersand was from Pottery Barn.

    Oh, and no big secret on the dresses… lots of ‘em (including that yellow one) are from Target.

  29. Jenn December 6, 2008 at 3:35 pm #

    So I am trying to organize all my DVDs and make it look nice. Have you by chance seen anything or have any ideas on how to make it lovely? :)

  30. Catherine December 6, 2008 at 5:05 pm #

    perhaps a ‘glamazon’ ;) speaking of which, I could so see your bringing home your sweet bundle of love in a cream, hand knitted cap with scalloped edges, with some ‘yo-yo’s like your necklace in hot pinks, light pinks, and greens appliqued on. It would be so sweet, but chic, but traditional, but modern; you know, like you.

  31. sema December 6, 2008 at 6:52 pm #

    You look so great :)

    Your dress, shoes and necklace are very nice :)

  32. Chantel December 7, 2008 at 12:44 am #

    You might be growing a mighty Amazon, but you look good doing it!

  33. Anneke December 7, 2008 at 3:06 am #

    Target…
    damn me and my Canadianness, we have no such thing here…
    next trip down, i guess!

  34. courtney December 7, 2008 at 3:43 am #

    I wore that dress in brown all 9 months! Target is a god send!
    The cuteness peaks at 7 months, enjoy and photograph it! By 9 months you are supposed to be miserable…that gives you the motivation to push the baby out! I too was pronounced to have a biggie. Lucky for me he showed up two weeks early at a reasonable 8lb 5oz. Things have a way of working out!

  35. Making it Lovely December 8, 2008 at 10:47 am #

    Jenn, we store all of ours in Billy bookcases (from IKEA) with doors.

  36. Haus December 8, 2008 at 2:36 pm #

    You look great – I love the necklace!

    And don’t let the doc worry you, ultrasound estimates are notoriously unreliable. My docs never even ventured an opinion on weight. So long as she’s growing, things are good!

  37. Miss B. December 8, 2008 at 5:02 pm #

    I think you are cutely pregnant:) Maybe you’ll have the next big supermodel and will be able to retire on an island somewhere…

  38. amy purple December 8, 2008 at 7:23 pm #

    I can’t wait to see photos of the nursery! Have you bought anything for it yet besides the vintage blocks and spools?

  39. Jessica December 9, 2008 at 4:56 pm #

    I had no idea how big my baby would be until she popped out 3 weeks ago. Almost 10lbs later….OUCH!! All I can say is take the drugs!!!

  40. Michelle Stepp@Everyday Celebrating December 9, 2008 at 4:59 pm #

    You look absolutely beautiful! I had a big ole 9 lb boy so I totally relate!!!

  41. Making it Lovely December 10, 2008 at 10:56 am #

    Amy, we bought the crib! It’s still in its box though – that room is a MESS right now.

  42. andreaj8781 December 12, 2008 at 2:18 am #

    I LOVE the “&” on the wall! Where can I find one of those?

  43. daisy mae December 19, 2008 at 2:13 pm #

    I had a 9 pound boy and at 8 months, people couldn’t tell I was pregnant. It made me so sad. I had to stick my belly way way out and waddle. But once I showed, it was amazing how nice everyone got. I would have liked more than 4 weeks of that though! Your house looks lovely and already almost baby-friendly. My son is crawling and about to walk. I have to move things daily as he keeps finding what I thought I moved out of his range. I love the pink ornaments too.

  44. teerish December 22, 2008 at 7:34 pm #

    you look cute! love the dress.
    I’m in the uncomfortably large phase right now (I’m nearly 32 weeks). It’s hard to breathe. =)

  45. sarah February 7, 2009 at 3:43 pm #

    At least you’re not having 8! Good luck and maybe I will see and your wee one walking about in OP- I’m in the hood!!

  46. Dallas November 11, 2013 at 6:46 am #

    Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you
    penning this write-up plus the rest of the website is extremely good.
