Well I thought I would do a pregnancy update.
So far time has been moving really slow for me,
March seems SO far away.
Maybe it is because I haven't had a classic busy semester with just taking one class
and so time is not going by as quick. Sometimes I love that it is moving slow
when I panic that we have SO much to do before the baby comes but
then sometimes I just want it to fly by and want to have him tomorrow!
Speaking of "him", yes we found out we are having a baby boy!!
It was really fun to find out, we just did a family thing, most of our family doesn't live here
so we had a major Google hangout.
I am not going to lie, I pictured myself with a girl.
We had a perfect name we both loved and I can do nails and tutu's and tea parties.
Tractors, dirt and dinosaurs? I wasn't so sure.
I did have a really strong hunch it was a boy though.
But last night I made Ben bring in the giant boxes of baby boy clothes that
we got from his parents from when they had twins a few years ago.
I pulled out all the newborn blankets and onesies and all of a sudden
I got really really excited for a baby boy.
The more I hear from people and spend hours online looking at
things, I feel so much more content about a boy. I can't wait to see
a little Ben and to see Ben with a son.
Now for us to agree on a name!
I am still feeling pretty sick.
Actually there has not been a day since I was 6 weeks that I have felt good and like myself.
I don't really remember what it is like to not be nauseous daily.
I am still throwing up every day and my gag reflex is out of control.
You should see me try and brush my teeth? Not cute.
I am praying that it goes away soon but also not getting my hopes up.
I still have food cravings and aversions.
I crave chicken nuggets A LOT especially the ones from Chick-fil-A, apples and pop.
I actually crave sweets now less than before I was pregnant.
I can't even think about ground beef, pork makes me sick to my stomach and anything
with garlic or ginger I also can't stand.
I am having trouble sleeping, I am not used to having to get up in the
middle of the night to pee and I for some reason have the hardest time
going back to sleep after I do.
I guess my body is just practicing.
I am finally showing a little to the point where people can sometimes tell.
I actually want to be showing more so people can stop wondering if that girl is pregnant or just kind of fat.
Sometimes when we are out in public I stick my belly out more and touch my stomach so that
people will know. Pathetic I know.
I haven't felt any real movement yet.
Well maybe I have, sometimes I think it is movement but it also just could
be my stomach grumbling.
I have tried big glasses of orange juice every morning
because rumor has it that orange juice makes the babies kick like crazy.
Still nothing yet I don't think. I really can't wait for it though.
Well that turned out to be really long but I love hearing about my mom's pregnancy
so hopefully this will be fun to look back on someday.
