my huge navel.

In case you haven't noticed,
I have MAJOR baby brain.
I eat, sleep and breathe baby.
I don't eat baby.
I just eat.
A lot.
You can imagine how ecstatic I was when I went to the Chocolate Festival this past weekend.
 Best day of my life.

I tried to act lady-like and control the urge to shove my mouth full of samples,
but I ended up being tagged in a random picture (on Facebook) that someone took...

and of course I was stuffing my face. 
If you zoom in, I actually have whipped cream on my upper lip.
It's probably the most attractive picture I've ever seen of myself.
According to the scales at the doctor,
I weighed in (today) 11 pounds heavier than my pre-preggo weight.
I was pleasantly surprised with that.
I'm not exaggerating when I say I've been eating everything.
I had convinced myself that I had probably already gained 20 pounds,
so an 11 pound weight gain at 17 weeks is cool with me. 
The bump is finally starting to show itself!
Here's my first official "bump picture" from last week.

Our gender ultrasound/ gender reveal party is going to be May 10th!
I am so ready to start buying it's wardrobe.

Oh. Random fact.
My navel...also known as my bellybutton,
is HUGE.
My belly button has always been fairly large and shallow (jealous?).
If I had to make a comparison,
I would say it was roughly the size of a quarter.
But now?
NOW it is roughly the size of a 50 cent piece.....
and the inside is almost level with my stomach.
If it continues to expand it's current rate,
I should be navel-less by next month.
