16 weeks! BTW, I didn't wear those shoes to church. I had some low heels on but they came off ASAP. I now regret buying almost all my heels at 4 or 5 inches high. It's getting harder and harder- I've been mega dizzy. And I'm already uncomfortable enough without having to add on my feet yelling at me.
Since I got pregnant I've had awful lower back pain, abdominal pains and cramps, and muscle cramps. It basically feels like I'm on a really bad period. Anyway, misses doc wants to make sure everything is okay so we get an ultrasound this week! YAY! That's the exciting part. (I'm sure everything is fine- I'm just destined to have a tough pregnancy) It's the first time our baby will look like a baby! The last time I had an ultrasound is when I went into the ER and the baby looked like a little kidney bean with stumpy appendages and they didn't let Clint in the room. It may even be late enough to tell if we're gettin a lil buddy or a lil sweetheart! We're excited to see our baby either way!
That brings me to my next point! One of the first things people ask when they find out you're pregnant (have you tried ginger?) is if we want a boy or a girl. Most people are shocked that I actually have an answer! It makes me feel a teensy bit bad for half a second and then I get over it.
My answer: girl!
People automatically think I'll be disappointed if it's a boy. I won't AT ALL I've just always wanted a little girl for my oldest since I was a little girl. If the rest were boys that'd be totally fine with me! Boys and girls are exciting in different ways. I just want to experience the girl stuff first. But there are more than a million reasons to be excited for a boy and I will be equally as happy! Ultimately, I want a healthy baby and I want it HERE already. This gestational stuff isn't workin out so well.
By the way, at our appointment today the doctor could hardly get a heartbeat because our lil muchkin was moving so darn much! He/she is gonna be an active one!
I'm still down 4 pounds from my starting weight. Which is better than 10! Being encouraged to eat would be super awesome if I had an appetite. Can't win em all, eh? And despite my weight loss my belly is measuring just right! So hopefully that means everything with baby is growing and developing just right too!
So do you have any predictions for us? Girl or boy?
WE, WE SO EXCITED!
