Pregnancy Update - Week 17
I could have sworn at about 9 weeks I was feeling this baby move quite regularly. I know, it sounds unbelievable, but it's true. Then by about 12 weeks I wasn't feeling it as much. I now feeling little jabs every now and again at night which is fun, but apart from that this pregnancy has been quite uneventful. Medical appointments and ultrasound visits keep us all in suspense of whether we have a boy or a girl which, I might add we will be finding out once and for all in 2 weeks exactly- how exciting!! And yes, we will be finding out. Juan has convinced me I do just HAVE to know. haha.
As for my size, I feel as though I have shrunk a little from the first trimester. But, there is a constant bump and the only comfortable shirts to wear now are maternity, and of course maternity sweatpants are the most comfortable things in the world anyway!
Tori: She thinks there is "a baby girl in mummy's tummy".
Eadie: According to El Salvador Myth/Tradition the hair part on the back of Eadith's head says the next child in our family will be a girl (this has been surprisingly reliably for generations...)
Juan: He is convinced we have a girl as well
Rani: I was thinking it's a boy for the first three months because this pregnancy has been so different from the the other two. But I remember thinking I had a boy with them as well... So, according to my last failed predictions, I am going to go with a baby girl as well just because I always seem to be wrong.
We have a couple of names we are tossing up, but that can be kept for another post. :-) ...Suspense!!
Anyway, feeling fine (apart from the flu) and growing bigger week by week. Will keep you posted!
