This is where it gets real. Target dressing room trying on real maternity shirts. Because all my ‘long’ shirts just aren’t quite covering the bump anymore. I feel kinda huge for how far along I am, but it’s also nice to be obviously pregnant. Of course, after I bought a few nice long sleeve maternity shirts, the weather warmed up to the low 80s for a week, but winter will come regardless!
Also, just a few days before that picture, we had our ‘big’ ultrasound. It was pretty cool to see such good looks at the baby’s heart and spine, as well as feet and hands. The 3D images were kind of freaky, to be honest, but what can you expect from a baby only halfway cooked?
And we got a great view of what’s going on between the legs. This baby is most definitely a girl!
We’ve had names picked out for a while now (we’re over-achievers like that), so we’ve been calling her Nora Jean ever since. It’s still a bit surreal, but with every kick and squirm this baby is making her way into our lives slowly but surely!
