Halfway there! I'm pretty sure time speeds up once you reach the 12 week mark of the pregnancy.

I've been feeling pretty well and this past month I didn't suffer from any aches or pains. Baby has been kicking every day now and the kicks are getting more pronounced. We had a scan and everything appears normal, baby is healthy and growing as it should be. And we also found out it's a girl! Very pleased that I won't be outnumbered by the boys - and Antek is particularly happy he's going to have a little sister.

In the coming weeks we will start decorating the baby's room - I've been having an insanely strong 'nesting syndrome' (talk about cleaning up the pantry at 9pm or decluttering everything in sight) so I am excited things are progressing!

Also, is it me or has my bump really popped over the last couple of weeks? There are days when I can't wait to have a bit of a bump, and then there are times when I feel very self-conscious and struggle to accept the weight gain and the changes happening to my body. But I guess that's pretty normal for every pregnant woman out there.
