Baby BUB Update

I am officially 17 weeks today!

In 9 days we'll finally settle the he/she debate in the BUB household.
Speaking of, have you voted in the gender poll on the sidebar?

Here are the major baby related events:
  • Baby BUB can now hear me.  How crazy is that?!  This means that I've really been watching my conversations.  And it means that I had some explaining to do when I had a conversation with a good friend about her jerk ex.  It actually led to a lecture for Baby BUB, in which I explained that "if you're a boy, and you ever get a girl pregnant, you had better man up and be a father."  Mr. BUB thinks maybe this was too heavy of a conversation for an unborn child, but I think it's good for him to know our expectations.
  • Baby BUB is now the size of a turnip.  Okay, if we're being completely honest, I didn't know what a turnip looked like before just now.  Thank you, Google.  I'm actually kind of glad they used a lesser known vegetable this week.  It gets really awkward when I accidentally eat the food they're comparing my baby to.
  • I'm hot.  Like, all the time.  We're talking temperature, people.  A few nights ago, it was 36 degrees outside, and someone in the BUB household turned the air conditioning on.  I'm pretty sure that when people refer to the "pregnancy glow," they mean sweat.
  • I'm hormonal.  The words, "Go ahead, officer.  Pull me over.  You are not prepared for this." actually came out of my mouth the other day.

Kasondra said...

Yay! I love updates!

I remember being hot...there was one point around 5mo (sorry, it doesn't get better) I actually stepped in a cold shower because I was overheating to the point of nausea. Yeah, no fun.

Uhm, I say things like that all the time (the cop comment) lol and I'm NOT currently pregnant!

Jennifer B said...

You look amazing! I'm so sad I didn't get to see the bump in the flesh. I love these Baby BUB Updates! You gotta keep 'em coming. I totally understand the heat thing! I am usually very cold natured but this baby has literally made me a furnace. You are, after all, baking a baby in there!!

Meg O. said...

And tell Tara not to worry - the TMI stuff comes later. She knows she loves it when I'm TMIing.

Ashleigh said...

you look so cute! you are so tiny! cant wait to hear if you have a boy or girl! i was soooo hot too- i had the AC on 66 during the spring- my husband had to wear 3 layers of clothing, haha

Whitney & Devin said...

Look at how cute your baby bump is!!! Love it!

Jessica Renee said...

You are so cute and teeny! I'm so glad you're doing updates now! :) And yeah, that being hot thing SUCKS. It's a good thing we're pregnant during cold weather months ;)

Anna said...

Girl, I'm 33 weeks today and I'm telling you the heat only gets worse. Last night was the first night I slept with a blanket on though...of course it was probably 65 degrees in our house. My hubbs thinks I'm "freezing him out." :)
You look great!

Chelsea @ {twotwentyone} said...

You look great! I doubt Baby BUB can make out everything you say. He/she probably hears the Charlie Brown mom voice. So if you say "f" word it most likely sounds like "duck" to him/her. :)

BG said...

you look amazing! i totally feel you on being hot all the time...who needs a heater anyway?!

keep these updates going, me likey! :)

Lori said...

Such a cute little baby bump. And I don't think it's too early to have that kind of talk with a boy. lol.

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Heather said...

Awww I'm glad you are doing an update!! You look wonderful...and that last comment cracked me up!
