Well, things are starting to get real interesting and fun for my husband and I. On Monday, we found out that we are expecting a little girl! The ultrasound technician said that she is 80% sure that I’m carrying a girl. I’ll have another ultrasound in 5 weeks or so just to make sure before we go too crazy with buying cute and frilly pink stuff.
Over the last couple of weeks, the non-stop morning sickness that I was experiencing before has almost completely gone away… thank goodness! And my belly just keeps on getting bigger and bigger (along with some of my other assets, if you know what I mean). In total, I’ve gained about 22 pounds (did I just hear a gasp?)! I’m not worried about it though because most of it has been gains in the belly and chest region. My husband is officially in awe of my belly… every night before bed, he rubs it, gives it a little kiss and then says, “Wow your belly is getting huge!” Ahh, isn’t he the sweetest? Every woman loves to hear that their stomach is ginormous. It’s true though—I can no longer see my feet when I look down or bend down comfortably to tie my shoes. Oh well, pregnancy is totally worth it. So far it’s the greatest experience of my life.
Last Sunday, I turned another year younger! Yay!! And, it was also the first day that I felt the baby kick. Pretty great birthday present, eh? I will try to keep you updated and share more photos as the days go on. I hope you are all doing well and I miss you. I still try to read your blogs as often as I can. Sorry, but I don't always have time to comment. Some days taking a nap wins out over everything else.
