17 weeks and 3 days!

Hey you guys! I'm so sorry it's taken so long to get on here and do this!! Life has been absolutely crazy lately!! So here i am at 17 weeks and 3 days pregnant! Very large. I'm hoping it stays all belly, but we will see. I can still fit into all my clothes, they just won't button at the belly area! I did go to the doctor on June 24th. I got on the scale at the beginning of my visit and new that i was in trouble!! hahaha. I have gained 9.5 pounds and at that point I was 16 weeks. I knew that was too much. Dr. Howell tried to be nice. But I told him that i needed him to be hard on me. I just told him I didn't want to be a 60 pound weight gainer, and that he needed to help me make sure that i wouldn't be! hahaha. And strangely enough, I truly believe it's God helping me out, but my appetite has completely been horrible lately. And i've lost 2.3 pounds according to the scale at work, which is right on with the scale at the doctors office. So hopefully, i won't gain so much by the next visit! They say some people gain a ton at a time and then stay in a lull, so we will see. He also told me that my event monitor that i had to wear looked ok, so that was great news! And the best news of all......i get to find out what i'm having on July 23rd!!! YAY!! I really don't think that it can get here fast enough! This will be the first appointment that Josh gets to go with me and i'm very excited about that. I think i'm just as curious to see how josh reacts during the ultrasound as i am to find out the sex! Such an exciting month! I can't wait to see what God planned for us! And i think this is the appointment where i get a 3D image to bring home, so i'll definately upload that and put it on here! Hope everyone is doing ok and i'm so glad that you're following this!! It's great to share an exciting time with friends and family that are just as excited!
Love, Layne and Josh!
