Just checking in here. I finally announced my pregnancy to my 2 bosses today. One's wife is expecting two weeks behind me so he was super stoked which surprised me a little bit. He swears I'm having a boy based on what I'm eating. He says those on the "lumberjack" diet have boys. Eating mostly meats, cheese and carbs. We'll have to wait and see. Our anatomy scan in Monday afternoon. I'm super excited. DH is hoping the babe doesn't cooperate. He really wants the surprise factor.
Baby aloha is moving around a ton. We can both feel the thumps from the outside which is really neat for DH. Babe usually quits when he put his hand on there though. How do they know? Little stinker already.
I'm still feeling really well....other than the fact that I've put on a whopping 11 lbs this month . I can see the weight gain. Unfortunately for me I gain weight in my face, hips, and belly. I'm getting a little rounder but babe is still concealing him/herself really well. My massage therapist mentioned that my hips are already widening--great. By the time I deliver, I might be the size of a semi.
I can't wait for the the warm weather to get here. I heard the frogs last night so hopefully that means spring is on it's way.
I'm really not into the whole party scene but a couple of my friends have already asked if they could give me a shower. I tried to discourage it as we are minimalist and don't want a bunch of "extra" stuff junking up the house.
We are doing co-ed showers. It' seems to be the norm around here. All of the showers I've been to in the last couple of years have been couple type BBQ's and they were a lot of fun.
I'd really like to do a blessing-way and think that I will do it after my mom arrives so that she can participate. She wants to come out for a month around the birth time so that she will get to see me pregnant and then see her grand baby for a bit before she has to go back home. I told here that she was welcome to come but there would be no guarantee to my mental state of mind. We are on opposite coasts and they (my family) are on very limited incomes so they don't travel much. Unless we go out there (East Coast) we don't get to see them for years at a time which is hard to miss all the kids growing up.
It sounds like everyone is doing really well. I'm excited to see how things progress as we all get closer.
Sorry for all the jumping around but that has been my state of mind lately. Baby brain has got the best of me.
Stay Healthy Mammas!
