My sister-in-law felt my belly last night and said 'are you sure you're not having twins'? :) I don't think so I said...There is always that real possibility that they just truly haven't seen it yet. But I think with the fact that I've already had two ultrasounds, surely they would have seen them both, or at least heard multiple heartbeats.
July 14th will be a big day for Sam and I, as that's when HOPEFULLY the dr will be able to tell us the sex of the baby. That's about 3 weeks away. By then, I'm hoping to feel it move (I'll be 19 weeks), and we're also hoping to hear if we get the house we're interested in or not. So this next couple of weeks for us is just going to be one big waiting game.
and here's a not-so-attractive picture of me at 16 weeks...
The only thing semi-weird & really pregnant feeling I've had so far is the other evening I started getting minor cramps in my belly and all the way around to my back and my legs. I called the dr., she said just drink LOTS of water and rest and it should go away. and it did. So now I know the remedy if that happens again.
we MAYBE found a house...we put a bid on it today and will find out sometime in the next 30 days...so here's to hoping!!!
And tonight Katie is going to take a picture of me at 4 months so I will post that as soon as we do it...
our baby is now the size of a softball! I am really starting to show when I wear clothes that flatter my belly, if that's possible. When I just wear t-shirts, I still just look fat like I've let myself go...but that's okay.
Baby should now be 4-4 1/2" long. And though I don't think I've felt it move yet, my book says it should be in the next few weeks....so that'll be awesome!
We're still on the house search, looking for the perfect fit for us. still looking...
Jill & I went shopping the other day, and since we don't know yet if we're having a boy or a girl, it's hard to buy stuff right now besides WHITE. so, we got white & gray sheep onesies from Old Navy...
And...a gift to our baby from Jill and & her sweet family are some adorable gender-neutral white onesies from the Gap. They're long sleeved which will be great for the winter!
The Disney Store is still going out of business, so we got this great snow globe for super cheap and it's super cute!
Stretch marks: hereditary? cocoa butter affect? either way I'm all for trying whatever I can to not get those suckers. Luckily though, the theroy of good genes is on my side. My mom doesn't have a one. She also said she used cocoa butter RELIGIOUSLY during each pregnancy, so it's a toss up which saved her body. or, could be a good combination of the two. Either way, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and my belly well-hydrated!
Being pregnant on the job: this doesn't affect me too much as I sit at a computer almost ALL day long. I don't have too many, if any, strenuous activities that will require a pregnancy leave of absence. So really attendance is the most difficult physical activity that my job requires, and that's easy!!
and other than that, I'm just looking forward to my dr visit at 15 weeks coming up next Friday. Still won't find out the sex yet, that we'll have to wait a couple more weeks for. But it's right around the corner!!!
