Congrats and welcome to the newbies! It is fun to think that you are due in August . . . makes our June due date seem not quite so far away!
Dw will be 12 weeks tomorrow
: and is still puking most every morning, but is otherwise feeling a little better. She's starting to have cravings and can eat more than just soup (though she's still wary of chicken and absolutely can't eat red meat). She is getting a little pooch of a belly and it's soooo cute.
We are already beginning to cave on the not-finding-out-the-sex thing. Now we're leaning towards finding out (this was spurred by the acupuncturist bringing up the idea that dw could be having twins. It's incredibly unlikely, but the only way to know for sure is to have an u/s, so now dw is thinking she wants an u/s). We both know that if have an u/s, we'll want to find out the sex(es?!?). We just wouldn't have the willpower to not find out with it right there in front of us (unlike our friends who are expecting their first baby in March and didn't find out the sex at their u/s, but have it written on a piece of paper in an envelope on their fridge! And they can just go about their lives with it sitting there, unopened!). And I'm beginning to see how it could be fun to know. I think it would feel more real.
I've been having a lot of fun telling people that we're having another baby in June, and then have them glance at my belly, like, "really?" And then I get to say, "my wife
is pregnant!" Not that I couldn't easily pass for a 3-months-pregnant person
:, but I imagine that this will get more fun we get further along in the pregnancy.
