We’re having a BOY!!!!!
I am so freaking excited, and a little nervous. I mean, I know girl things! What do I know about raising a boy? I guess I’ll learn?
I’ve already told Mr. A he is responsible to make sure that when Baby A is a teenager he’s not stinky. I think I have my bases covered.
How Far Along: 20 weeks
Size of baby: 6.5 inches. A small cantaloupe.
Total Weight Gain: I’m at about 8 pounds so far, which is pretty good!
Maternity Clothes: I wear maternity pants constantly, and then not maternity shirts and dresses.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Movement: Definitely feeling kicks. Mr. A felt him for the first time this week, which was AWESOME.
Sleep: So much better now that I have a body pillow.
What I miss: Margaritas on a hot day. And sitting in a hot tub.
Cravings: Last night it was pizza… and sweet things.
Symptoms: Totally all types of achy. My sciatica has flare ups that will make walking or standing REALLY painful for periods of time.
What I’m looking forward to: Getting to buy boy things!
The highlight of my life today was realizing that I am going to have two amazing guys to dress, and I have every intention of making them twins
. Last night after the doctors we went to Target and I was mostly unimpressed and uninspired by their baby boy clothes. Everything was baseball or monkeys; which just wasn’t doing much for me. Then this morning I bought Baby’s first pair of shoes (What up SLIP ON VANS FOR INFANTS) (I die.), and Mr. A has the SAME pair. TWINS!! JOY!! Then I found a page on Baby Gap
that was basically exactly what Mr. A wears. Now I can’t contain my excitement. My two boys are going to be THE CUTEST EVER.
