Vegas Baby

I just returned home from a quick weekend getaway in Vegas. Justin is staying for business until Wednesday. It was quite a different experience going to Vegas pregnant. It was actually really nice waking up every morning feeling normal! We arrived Friday night and went out to dinner with my sister, Sarah, who lives in Vegas. We ate at Tao at the Venetian. It was a fun experience. I did a lot of people watching... Vegas nightlife is very entertaining! Saturday we went to the new mall...I can't remember what it is called, but it was really nice. It reminded me of an outdoor mall in LA that Sarah and I went to back in May. Can't remember the name of that mall either! We also went to the Tropicana and saw a comedy show. It was hilarious and we had a great time. To end our Saturday night, we went to Paris and had crepes!!! Oh my goodness they were sooo good! On Sunday, we walked around the strip for awhile being tourists before I had to catch my flight back to Seattle. The weather was around 64, the perfect weather for t-shirt and jeans! It was really nice to feel the sun! I felt huge all weekend. I'm at that stage where I look fat or pregnant and the judgment is in the eyes of the beholder. It was so wonderful seeing my sister. It will probably be the last time until the baby is born. :(



I finally scanned my last ultrasound pictures from December and posted them below! So I thought I was one week ahead, but I had my regular checkup and my doctor said that my due date has not changed. So, June 22nd is the due date and I am back to being one week behind what I thought. It really doesn't matter now. As long as our baby is healthy. Because I'm pushed back a week, our 20 week ultrasound won't happen until the first week in February. We are getting so anxious to find out what we are having! I've been feeling a lot of little movements! It is so amazing! I stop in my tracks every time to see if the baby will move again. I spent my morning reorganizing my closet and making room for all of the maternity clothes that friends have graciously let me borrow! It is really depressing not being able to fit into your clothes anymore and it all happened so fast.
This is my favorite picture! The abdomen and little legs. So adorable!

Wow, you look so adorable. I think you look pregnant for sure. What a cute little belly! I hear ya on the movement. I could sit around and try to feel him move all day. I love it. Let's do lunch or coffee next week? I am out of town but I'll e mail you this weekend to see if you are available next week sometime. I'd love to get together!

YAY! Your belly is so cute! So glad you posted pics. We are counting down the days to find out what we're having too - it's like waiting for Christmas! You are so lucky that you can already feel him/her move - I can't wait. Love ya!

Love your post, sounds like you have a case of the baby brains (forgetfulness) :). Waiting for the 20-week scan is agony but I'm sure it will be here before you know it. x

You definitely look pregnant, not fat :) You look beautiful as always! I'm sure the suspense is torture for you both!
