The Difference Four Weeks Makes {Bump, 17 Weeks}

In four weeks, the trees went from bare to beautiful. In four weeks, I went from that awkward “Is she pregnant?” phase to more like I’m the owner of a legit prego tummy.


As one of my 7th graders wrote on a note to me: “You get bigger and bigger every day. I think it’s awesome.” Seriously, they crack me up. They found out about a month ago when two girls came over to me in study hall and whispered “We have a question to ask you, but it’s kind of embarrassing, and we don’t want any boys around.” Their hilarious reactions and comments have been making my days quite entertaining ever since then. They ask frequently whether it is a boy or girl, and when I tell them I won’t know until the end of May, the standard reaction is “You’re going to keep us in suspense until then?!”

I’m happy to report that four weeks’ time has also (mostly) brought about the end of morning sickness. Aaaand in less wonderful news, in four weeks, the neighbors went from politely staying out of their yard while we took necessary bump photos to having the nerve to barge in and open their shed and look through their things (!!!!!!) while we took necessary bump photos.

Neighbors these days. ;)

Happy weekend, everyone!


  1. The nerve. They obviously don't understand the importance of blog photos. That bump is adorable! I'm with your students...boy or girl??????? I must know now. Get on that. Tell your Dr. that another Dr. said it was cool. ;)

  2. OK, I'm seriously behind the times, but CONGRATS!!! This is so exciting. I've missed reading the blogs and I strangely had a little free time this morning (get ready for your life to be flipped upside down in the most WONDERFUL way), so I hit a couple of blogs. So excited for you!

  3. You have the cutest bump! Now I'm all excited to find out if it's a boy or a girl.

  4. You are adorable!!! Your neighbours have some nerve though. I think you need to write them a letter or something. Maybe you guys can make up a yard shared custody agreement?

  5. You and your bump are adorable! Plus I love your outfit!

    And the nerve of your neighbors! They probably just want to be blog famous.

  6. You are so stinkin' adorable!!! I hope I'm 1/8 as adorable as you if I am ever with-child. :)

    And how dare your neighbors?!? What...do you have a post a sign "Blog Photos in Progress...Keep Out, Please" so they get it?!? Sheesh!

  7. One for his/her baby book: baby bump photo-bombed by the neighbors...

    Happy 17 weeks!

  8. clearly your neighbors are unsupportive. ;) you are adorable!!! how fun for your students to watch this, too!

    You are incredibly adorable! I still vote GIRL! Do you have any "feelings" one way or the other? When I was pregnant with my first, I was sure it was a boy because the baby moved ALL THE TIME. Then I had a girl! Like I even knew what I was talking about - I'd never had a baby before!

  10. You are ROCKING it! That is the most adorable little preggo bump I ever did see.

  11. KEEP THOSE PICTURES COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. You are so cute! Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better!!
