Pregnancy stuff

So here I am at 19 weeks, definitely sporting a belly. LBJ (little bundle of joy), as I've taken to calling her/him in my head packs quite a punch. And kick. And whatever else he/she is doing in there. I don't remember this kind of power from Elise until around the 25 week mark.

I'm feeling a lot better these days, and am happy to report that I'm eating everything and anything I can get my hands on. It feels good to like food again.

I had forgotten how tiring incubating a human can be... I don't remember being this exhausted with Elise. But then again I wasn't growing a baby, chasing a toddler, and acting as my daughter's pancreas 24/7 all at the same time either back then.

Tuesday we find out the gender... can't wait!

You look so cute! I'm going to guess boy, only because Jake packed a pretty powerful punch too. Can't wait to hear what you are having!

Meri said...

Hooray for Tuesday! I hope this little guy/gal isn't shy! Aunt Meri wants to know!! I have no patience Joanne! Does Elise think boy or girl?

are we hoping for a boy or a girl or are we happy with whtever the sex is ? I m kinda leaning towards a boy cause you are carrying low . so do tell us all soon . take care and glad the pregnancy is going so well .

Joanne said...

Thanks everyone! I am so ready to find out the gender so I can start getting things ready!

@ Meri - Elise's opinion depends on what day it is... mostly she says girl.

@ Phonelady - We'll be happy no matter what, although since Elise and this baby would be almost exactly 3 years apart, it would be easiest if it were a girl. I wouldn't have to buy any clothes at all!
