Only 188 (ish) days to go.... Thank you baby centre app for that detail! But thats not bad right?
I'm feeling incredibly LARGE these days, ha even though I know I'm not really.
I feel like I'm kind of in that stage where I'm looking a little more round but I definitely don't look pregnant yet... know what Im talking about? Like I maybe just ate too much cake...
I can't wait until I get to the "I look pregnant and everyone can see it too stage".
I absolutely loved and adored being pregnant and looking pregnant the first time around. As someone who has never been 'overweight' but just never felt quite 'comfortable' in my own body since I was in Jr High, I relished the fact that my body seemed "made for a baby". I felt rounded out in all the right places and I felt a little bit like some sort of earth mama goddess.
Next week I will be in my second trimester, what I consider the "golden days" of pregnancy. You look great, you feel great and all is well. Im hoping that in my second trimester I will even out a bit in the bump department....
I have had two appointments so far and heard that sweet little heartbeat. Unfortunately Bob wasn't with me since he had made plans to go back to our cabin with some friends of his (I had forgotten about the appointment). So while I was hearing the melodic sound of our second child he was shooting propane canisters and blowing stuff up... Heaven help me if we are having a boy!!
Speaking of Gender... we have decided that we will find out this time what our baby's gender is. I never ever thought I would, but things are looking like they will be busy busy this summer and we are more than likely again moving out of our house to live full time June-Sept at a Christian Kids camp. Its exciting stuff for us but will be crazy to have a newborn in the middle of that so though I love the surprise, I think I will feel much more prepared if I can have as much ready as I can.
As far as the details go...
I'm still feeling tired. But I can feel it starting to lift.
I have had cravings much earlier this time around, but I rarely let myself give in...
I haven't been super hungry, especially in the mornings so smoothies have been my go to.
Ultrasound booked for Feb 20th.... 6 long weeks to wait!
Still in regular clothes, thank the good Lord!
Can't wait to do some renovations in the spring and get this house ready for 2 babies!
Ok... don't think I'm crazy but I'm pretty sure I felt a few little flutters last week... is that crazy? Some of my friends have told me that they felt their second babies that early. I felt Hazel at 14 weeks so Im not surprised I felt this one earlier. Can't wait until those little flutters turn into kicks! I LOVE feeling my babies! (past and present... im not having twins)

What are your thoughts about finding out the gender? Did you find out or would you?
*** Fun fact about PEI (Where I live), they have only started telling the gender of the baby in your ultrasound here in the last year. Im not sure the real reason they didn't tell you but most people think it has something to do with the fact that abortion is also illegal here and many older Doctors thought that if we were able to find the gender than abortion would be allowed soon after...
