How far along: 19 weeks (sorry I’ve missed a few weeks!)
Gender guess: I made a bet with Brandon this week that it’s a boy… I feel pretty sure about it but who knows lol
How I’m feeling: The last few weeks have been rough physically and emotionally. A lot of stress up in here but things are moving along. I will post more about that later this week.
Highlight this week: Brandon and I got a night to ourselves recently! I missed McKenna so so much but it was lovely to have some time for just us because pretty soon it’s gonna get crazy up in here!
Miss anything: I’ve been too busy lately to miss anything.
Movement: There are a couple of times that I thought I felt a kick here or there and some flutters at night. I’m still not positive, but it’s way more than I ever got close to feeling with McKenna this early on, so I’ll take it.
Cravings: I’ve been eating a lot of peanut butter – on toast, bananas, sandwiches, etc. I’ve been able to eat a little more meat as well which is good so I can get protein more easily. I’m also loving dairy, especially milk.
Looking forward to: Since I last posted I had a baby appointment and I got a lot of relief from hearing answers to my questions. I’m doing everything I need to, except maybe being stressed and not getting enough sleep. Hey, I’m working on it!
What Brandon says about the baby: Brandon says “SHE is amazing, and I can’t wait to meet HER.” This of course is because he is of the belief that we are having a girl. We shall see.
What McKenna says about the baby: McKenna talks about you all the time but is having a hard time understanding that you are still coming! If it doesn’t happen right away…. lol
Dear future baby,
In some ways this pregnancy has been easier and in other ways it has been way harder. In one breath I say that it’s going by so quickly since we are being kept so busy. In the very next moment I feel like it is taking forever for you to get here! We know that everything will change when you get here, and we are SO excited for it.
Daddy thinks you are a girl, I think you are a boy, McKenna often says you are “bofe of dem” (meaning that you are both boy and girl? Or maybe she means that she thinks there are twins in there… not sure but wow). We are anxiously awaiting finding out whether you are a boy or a girl at the gender reveal in September.
Love, your future Mama
