The Amazing Growing Belly

Here I am at 25.5 weeks (top) and 24 weeks (bottom).
I really feel big this pregnancy, and I am amazed at how big I look! My measurements are going up faster than the actual weeks I'm at, so I am keeping an eye on it :) Who knows, maybe there really *is* two in there?
23 weeks- 24 cm
24 weeks-26 cm
25 weeks- 27cm

This is about the time a jump should become apparent if there are two in there. But I'm thinking it is just a normal growth spurt and I look bigger because my body has already done this once before :)

We kind of picked out a name if it is a girl; Everleigh Rhys. We also like Parker Brian for a boy, but we aren't sure yet. I am thinking this baby is a girl, and my dreams seem to agree with me :) I had a weird one the other night. I told myself before I went to bed that I would dream of what this baby's gender is. I then had a dream that I was decorating a room for my baby, and I was with *someone*. I don't know who, or whether they were male or female or alien lol, but suddenly I *realized* I was dreaming, and remembered my question and asked it. I then noticed the colors we were decorating with (girl colors), and asked the other person, "Are you sure?" and the replied "Oh, definitely!" and a great sense of peace came over me. I wonder if this dream will turn out to be true?

Anyway, just thought I'd post a quick update for everyone. I haven't been around much due to issues at home, summer, 2 year old, etc... but I hope to get more action on here soon!
