Sorry no belly shots yet. I am a slacker. I will get some though. I just put on a few pictures of the kids since I have no other pictures.
So last week I had my 18 week appointment. Things are going good so far. Baby is measuring 1 week bigger, but my doctor said it is fine and very normal to be 2 weeks bigger or smaller. I did the same with Cameron.
Nesting is totally kicking in. Unfortunately all the cleaning and organizing is in the basement and I can't move all the big boxes with out help. I guess it will have to wait. Don't worry, I always find something to clean. I clean my doors, floor boards and cupboards close to once a week.
I was so excited when I started feeling the baby move. Ryan was able to feel baby move about 17 weeks. This baby is much more calm than Cameron and really doesn't move much. Pretty much on a schedule wakes up moves for a bit and is back to resting.
Okay okay. So I know you want me to shut up and tell you if it is a boy or a girl right? Well I can honestly tell you.... I don't know yet, but I am a slacker and didn't even get any guess from anyone. Now is your chance to tell me your guess. From the beginning I had a feeling it was a girl, but I know no matter how different every pregnancy is different and might be a boy. So here are all the symptoms/Old wives tales and you make a guess.
I have been more nauseated with this baby. Way more heart burn and acid reflux. I have craved strawberries and chocolate. I have broken out, where as with Cameron I did not. I am carrying low, just like with Cameron. Baby's heart rate has been 171, 166, 150, 153. Cameron's ranged from the 166-145. (not much of a difference). For me I would love either a boy or a girl. I already have one of each. Brooklynn would love a sister and girls are fun to dress up. Also I think of how fun it would be for Cameron to have a buddy to be so close in age. I can't wait to find out so I can get ready and know what the heck we are going to do about the rooms and beds. So what do you think????
