It’s hard to believe I am already half way through (give or take) this pregnancy! While it seemed as if January was the absolute longest month of my life, time has been flying ever since the morning sickness faded. Seeing my growing belly in the mirror still always surprises me.
Milestones & Appointments
Last week we had a very happy milestone. I started feeling the first tiny kicks from Baby #2. This was a couple weeks earlier than I felt BabyE moving, but this time I already knew to be looking for that little fluttery feeling.
We also had our third prenatal appointment with our midwife last week. Aside from continued pregnancy exhaustion, all is well. This was my first time taking 19 month old E with me to my appointment all by myself. I was so incredibly proud of him. He did awesome!
My very favorite moment was when I needed to lay down for the midwife to examine me. E found a step stool by the bed. He stepped right up to help the midwife which brought his little face right to the level of mine. He leaned over and gave me a big kiss. He is already a great big brother and big helper to his mama!
Boy or Girl?
That brings me to the question I know you were asking when you opened this post, Are you going to find out whether it’s a boy or girl? I posed this question to you on facebook, and I loved reading everyone’s experience. Everybody has a different reason for choosing one way or the other!
We did find out we were having a boy when I was pregnant with BabyE. For this pregnancy though, it will be a surprise! Later on this spring, I’m sure we can have some fun on the blog with guessing based on all the gender prediction wives tales.
