Pregnancy record: Week 17

I'm sure that most of you have already known, through my facebook pictures, that we are expecting a little baby girl. I can't describe how happy I was when I found out the gender of the baby. I've always wanted a girl first. In fact, I prayed really hard to have a girl. I dreamed of having a girl and I wished for one. I guess even before the ultrasound technician scanned for the baby's genital I sort of already know that it would be a girl. I don't know why I had such a strong feeling about it being a girl, I just did. It was amazing to finally be sure that my hunches were right.

The first time seeing my girl on the screen was really emotional for me. I was so happy to see her little head and arms and legs. I wish I can put my feelings down in words but I don't know how to explain it. I was touched, happy, filled with love, and impatient at the same time. I wish I could touch her now and kiss and shower her with all my love. It's only been 17 weeks but I felt like the baby has been inside me for so long. Even though I can't wait to see her, I also love that she is in my belly, close to me. I love that I can protect her and that there are two heartbeats inside of me. I am so glad that I am a woman. This is the most amazing feelings I've ever felt--being pregnant, being a mother, and having a child inside of me. I have never been happier.

 The first thing we bought her when we found out she's a girl.

She puts her arm on her head. SO CUTE!!

Her teeny foot and toes

Her head and leg. She is so small!

I am growing slow but steady

Well, I'm glad you think it is an amazing feeling! Right now I feel like maybe I would just feel like there is an alien in me . . . haha.

I envy you because you still keep in shape despite having your baby bump. I just had my first child and I'm having a hard time getting back my shape so I'm tempted to have a liposuction in New York. Can you share any weight loss tips?
