sluggish and crabby.. (also 17w1d)

and it's my own damn fault... I stayed up late (finally watching some old stuff from my DVR list... so many movies/show... so little time!!) working on a crochet baby sweater I started a month or so ago...

I just kept saying, "one more row!" and then it was 12:45...oiy...

but what a great weekend!!!

we got into the VFW hall Friday night to decorate (only got blurry shots from that night, meant to send them to my mom - who, due to long distance, couldn't come to the party)

(we put up a few more decorations Saturday morning... after I locked myself out of the hall by not bringing the right key, and having to wait nearly 25 minutes for E to come with it...)

 (and of course, all the great pictures of the cake, more decorations, people, etc are on my big Canon at home... which means I'll promise to post them later and they'll never get posted... but really, I do intend to take a look at them very soon.. this week... lol)

the only other pictures I could find from friend's phones/my phone:
(obviously the collage on the right is from a friend, so it's her son in the center lol)

yesterday was so hot... so so hot... we got out one of Button's new gifts (water table from MIL&FIL) and played on the front lawn for about 10 minutes, which is when Button even said, "too hot aiya! (outside)" 
 After nap time, we high-tailed it over to IL's house to lounge in their pool (and get dinner that I didn't have to cook!) 

And a quick 17W update:

I've been feeling baby (kick! pop!) a bit more regularly - 2-3 "sessions" with a few pops per session each day! - the last week or two... I LOVE IT!!! According to Button's pregnancy, two more weeks-ish until they can be felt from the outside!

Weight gain definitely slowed down/stalled - I think I overdid it until last week, and am feeling much better with what/how much I'm eating

Next appointments are an OB check-up (only weight, urine, BP & doppler) in two weeks, and in another week after that - the A/S!!!! (oh and in between there somewhere is my 30th birthday... GAH)

but it'll be a 30th birthday spent probably shopping for .....


Ok so - we went in Friday right after work, and made nice with the "tech" (obviously they're trained at ultrasounds, but instead of working at a clinic are working at an elective ultrasound place, hence the quotes around tech. lol I dunno...) and made our votes on the cute little board in the room:
(these votes were totally based on the prediction we got at 12w... hint hint)

We got to see baby (hi baby!) and hear a great hb (154-156bpm!)

and then came the Money Shot... 

and boy, did SHE SHOW HER GOODS!!!!!

(I just realized, I plastered a picture of my daughter's VaJayJay on the internet... #worldsbestmother)

And so begins (ok honestly, continues) my P.interest obsession for all things Little Girl!!!! Time to make that board public!
