17 weeks tomorrow

Okay, June 14th at 11am is the day we find out! It was supposed to be a week from tomorrow but I changed it to a day Mom could come. I dream every single night about the baby and wondering what it might be. I rack my brain daily trying to come up with a boy name and NOTHING sticks. The girl name is 99.9% for sure and even though Ava Beth knows the name and decided to tell a family member, I am HOPING the family member's mouth remains SHUT. Hint, hint!  If it is a boy I am sure we will do another Bible name because with two boys having Bible names, I have to keep it going.  But I am head over heels in love with the girl name and Jeremy has already come up with a very cute nick name that only he would use and maybe the kids. We shall see!

I am feeling the baby a lot but sporadic and not where anyone can feel. I hear women say how they hate being pregnant and I can't imagine hating it. I know pregnancy is hard and harder on some than others but those flutters are the most amazing thing ever!  This picture was taken last week before I got to have a night out with a friend. I do not have but three maternity tanks and one pair of shorts (the shorts I don't wear out) so get ready to see me in the same clothes ALL the time! :)  My maternity swimsuit did arrive last Friday but that is something I will NEVER be photographed in. ugh!  Other than those items, I am stuffing myself in old tank tops and yoga pants around the house. Even if you say you are done having children, DO NOT get rid of your stuff like I did. Did I mention we do not own one baby item? WOW! As we begin visiting churches, I will have to start investing in some maternity clothes because the tanks I bought are already too tight and a pregnant women who isn't modest is not something you want to see. :)

You are so beautiful and you glow pregnant! I wish I lived close to you to come over and chat. This past week was one of those weeks I'd love to have picked your brain on homeschooling and parenting. :) I just keep praying and parenting hee hee I am praying for you! I can't wait to hear what you are having. Once you guys find out are you announcing the name or waiting til he or she is born? Also what size maternity do you need???

I'm sure you would be cute in anything!! You are adorable! On a side note, I always loved your playlist you used to have..what is some of your current music you are loving right now??

Amanda said...

Tracy, I don't have a certain kind I am listening to right now except a lot of country. When I am running I am constantly looking for new songs but right now I don't have any new favs!

I need to add that playlist back!!

Tracy: said...

I love the few country songs that you have posted too! Yes, add your playlist when you have time and are inspired by new songs! You got me hooked on Misty Edwards a few years ago (has it been that long?) wow!

I think Asher for a boy is such a great name. We have some friends who's little boy is named that. Look it up in the Bible and Asher was the leader of the 12 tribes of Isreal. What an incredible man!! If I ever had another baby, and it was a boy, there would be no doubt it would be Asher. Asher Hayes sounds great!! We have some other friends who named their son Rowan Asher. Cute, huh???? You look beautiful pregnant and always. Good luck on your finding out in a few weeks!!

Wendy, I know too may Jacobs. :) u know me, I like to go against the norm.

Marla, Asher is a name I considered with Ezekiel but it doesn't stick but very cute! Love who he was!

I have a few ideas but nothing definite!
