A little pregnancy update! Hint: if you’re a dude, you may not want to read this.
At my last appointment I was 16 weeks and 5 days, so just at the beginning of being able to find our the sex of the bay-bee! My doctor uses an ultra sound, himself, to hear the heartbeat at each appointment. This is new to me, because my old Dr. had a doppler to hear the heart beat and a tech to see the sonogram. As much as I LOVE my old doctor, this is probably the coolest thing ever! I get to see the little angel face every month! So, walking in, we were hoping to find out the sex, but not sure if it was too early. I wanted a girl for me and a boy for Digsby. And I wanted a brother more than a sister, because he’d have a built-in BFF/wrestle buddy/roommate and let’s be honest, I feel like I’ve got this boy mom thing down, at least a bit. Driving in, Josh and I were talking about what kind of baby I was baking and since all the wives tales pointed to girl and this pregnancy is SO MUCH better, I thought, it must be a girl!
He couldn’t see the baby using the doppler on my tummy because this little peanut was down in my pelvic region. So after an up and close wand we got to see the little baby parts!
Digs gets a BROTHER!! We are just SO excited!!! Digs totally gets what’s going on. He talks about the baby, pulls my shirt up to snuggle the baby and gives his little brother his snacks (through my button, of course). It’s the craziest and sweetest thing I’ve ever seen!
The baby is measuring big, but the doctor isn’t changing the due date because it doesn’t mean much in this season, but it does explain the weight gain this month!
Cravings: Chocolate cake with a side of a KC strip steak
Weight Gain: 4 lbs!
The Best Part: Seeing Digsby love on the new guy already.
The Worst Part: I can not sleep! And no, my body is not preparing me because I didn’t sleep that much to begin with! However, this pregnancy is WAY better than my last, so the worst part isn’t that bad as I know it can be! (Last time one of my legs was numb and I couldn’t walk/stand for more than a few minutes at a time without feeling like a one-legged watermelon)
