If we did an ultrasound this week I’d probably be able to see what you are… Boy or girl that is, but sadly I won’t know for four more weeks. I know you know but to me, this is torture not knowing. So far all of the tests are telling my boy, so I’m pretty much convinced you’re a boy, but your daddy still thinks you’re a girl.
As far as your mommy goes, I’ve been gaining some weight. We go in for another appointment to hear your little heartbeat on Monday so I’ll also get weighed then and see how much I’ve gained. Last month I had gone down, and back to my origional weight, but this month I’m sure I’ve gained… Maybe even 5 pounds! We’ll see.I’ve had a stuffy nose and cold this week but I guess… Like everything else, that can be seen as a pregnancy symptom too. Another crazy thing that happened this week… You kicked my belly button out!! Just look! I can’t believe it. I hear it only gets bigger as my tummy does. Your daddy is already making “outtie” jokes. You’re going to have to poop on him or something later to get him back for me.
Your daddy and I decided not to get the tests done to see if you may have any genetic problems. We decided we’d love you either way, but we’re sure you’re perfectly healthy.
I have a lot more energy lately and the biggest news of the week… I felt you move around!! It was New Years Eve, and you were about 15 weeks old exactly and you felt like a slow moving bubble in my stomach. I felt you then, two days ago while we were riding in the car, and last night. I think you’re a night owl like mommy. I can’t wait until I feel you every day, and when your daddy can feel you too.
Sleep well little baby, and grow strong. We’re doing our best to get ready for you and we’re really excited to meet you!
