Hey Danny, I TOLD YOU SO!
Many of you have heard we are having a boy! I hate to start my blog by telling Danny, "I told you so!" But I did. Who am I kidding, I love it. Mean wife? Yes, but I'm happy to be right since I was wrong about everything with Pearl. We are super excited though! Danny and I went to my 18 week appointment for the routine of taking my weight and listening to the heartbeat. I really wasn't planning on finding out the gender, especially since an ultrasound wasn't scheduled, but hoped I would have the courage to beg the Doc for a look. We listened to the heartbeat and then Dr. Lamoreaux asked if we wanted to take a peak at the gender since Danny came along.
Word vomit, "YES."
So he took us back to an ultrasound room and we got to see our baby on the 50 inch screen! I loved seeing him move on the big screen while feeling him kick me at the same time. So weird, but awesome. Dr. Lamoreaux did a quick look at our baby's brain, heart, kidneys, ect. and said everything looked great. That is always a relief for me to visually see them growing healthy and strong. I love our Doctor's office! Next was the gender. Sure enough, lil' man was not shy or afraid to show off his manliness. Danny was in shock since he was sure it was another baby girl. I was stoked and immediately demanded a mini Danny, since you can demand such things. Right? We will get to see him again for a more in depth ultrasound next week and my due date is still October 8th.
After the appointment Danny went to school and I drug Millie and Pearl around buying some cute little dude clothes! I am beyond excited to have one of each gender running around.
I have two photos of my last pregnancy. One, is in a Grinch suit and the second in a public bathroom.
So I thought I'd take some at my half way point.
I'm 20 weeks tomorrow and feeling great. The next month is the best part of the pregnancy, not too fat or nauseous. With my first pregnancy, I was too proud to buy maternity clothes which makes no sense since I was PREGNANT. Last week I broke down and bought my first pair of maternity jeans from Ross for $10. I want to publicly declare my stupidity for not wearing maternity pants the first go around! I've never known such comfort and am considering wearing them the rest of my life, and definitely to all buffets. If any of you ever feel too proud, suck it up and buy some maternity pants and actually be comfy your entire pregnancy. You'll thank me because they're unreal.
Anyways, end of chubby rant. I can't believe I'm half way!
