I somehow convinced Andrew that we should be surprised and wait to find out the sex!
It took some time and a powerpoint presentation (I kid ha) for him to understand my reasoning but he is on board now. I think the surprise will be a really amazing experience to have together in addition to how incredible the miracle of birth is and while I HAD TO KNOW with the girls, for some reason with this one I am craving a surprise. I’m also thinking that between Knox really wanting a boy and Brooke wanting a girl, it will be much easier for both of them to just love the baby so much no matter what when they meet it and see it for the first time compared to feeling disappointed before they meet him/her. We are going to try something new but also don’t be surprised if I change my mind in a few weeks because I never know what I am going to feel/think the next day lately ha.
As of right now I think it is a boy because this pregnancy has been so much different but then again I wonder if getting older plays a part in being more sick etc.
Okay, let’s talk about a few things happening this last week!
*Running is feeling so much better than it did in the first trimester. Well, everything feels better now than it used to ha but I’m really enjoying my runs now.
*I went from needing my weighted blanket to sleep each night of my life to not even wanting to see it anymore and hiding it under the bed because it just feels so suffocating now ha. I just miss consistency in my life and knowing what I do and don’t like for more than 10 seconds at a time. I am loving my body pillow that Andrew got me at Costco and I’m using that every night.
*I just started wearing a wedding ring again (sometimes) ha. See above suffocating feeling… That’s how a ring felt on my finger so I went a few months without mine on and still don’t wear it everyday. When I stopped wearing my wedding ring at the end of my first marriage a lot of people guessed I was getting divorced so when I wasn’t wearing mine the last few months I was worried people would wonder but Andrew and I are doing absolutely fabulous, I’m just crazy when pregnant and little things bother me.
*Skye is convinced that she has a baby in her belly now and tells us as often as possible.
*I sleep every night with a banana next to my bed and sometimes in the morning when I wake up and see the peel I don’t even remember eating it in the middle of the night. Not only do bananas sound good to me but I also don’t want to deal with the intense leg cramps that I had during the night when I was pregnant with Skye. As soon as I started eating bananas with Skye’s pregnancy, the cramps went away.
*Tell me there will be a day that i can brush my teeth happily again. With the girls I just switched from mint toothpaste to Colgate but I can’t even handle Colgate right now!
*Greek food sounded so incredibly good this week and I had to make it a part of my life.
*Somebody recommended Propel Water to me (I love Kiwi Strawberry) and I’ve been drinking that like crazy and feeling so much more hydrated… That plus starting to take Tagament plus being a few weeks into the second trimester and I am feeling a lot better the last few days. I haven’t thrown up for over a week now.
*Skye is now happy about the baby because we told her that she will get to sleep in Brooke’s room once the baby is here. I’m not sure I’ll be able to ever give up the crib with her so we might just have to buy another and scoot one into Brooke’s room.
Has anybody else waited to find out the sex of their little one?
Pregnant readers—> What has just sounded absolutely amazing to you this week? How far along are you?
When did your kids move from a crib to a bed? Skye will be 3 once she will move to a bed and I’m feeling nervous about this!
