Yesterday my ultrasound was rescheduled from August 28th to August 14. I will be 18 weeks 1 day. Hopefully not too early to find out the gender. Finding out the gender is very important this time around. It will tell whether we need to get a double stroller and a new monitor or if we need an entire boy wardrobe on top of the stroller and monitor. After 2 girls, we have enough frilly baby clothes to dress half the town, but alas you can put a boy in pink only so often before people start talking about you.
I've been forgetting to mention a few things about this pregnancy. I'm still occasionally throwing up. It sucks but this is apparently what I get after 6 pregnancies with no morning sickness. I'm still exhausted. I need at least a 2 hour nap every day. I don't nap. I hate napping. It makes me feel unproductive. But I do it because if I don't I will literally pass out wherever I happen to be. They claim fatigue goes away during the second trimester, the honeymoon of pregnancy, but not for me. I will have no peaceful time before the hugeness comes. Oh and I can feel the baby kick. For a while now. Probably since about the 13th or 14th week. Very reassuring since we didn't rent a Doppler this time. No one else can feel it, but that's the same as last time. No one else can feel anything until somewhere after 20 weeks.
