Filho ou Filha? Ninguem sabe.

We find out on Wednesday (if our shy baby cooperates) what the baby is! Plus, I felt the baby move today (down in my right lower belly)! It was exciting. I was peacefully reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for our book club and as much as I couldn't imagine what people were describing when they said it felt like gas, that's kinda what it felt like! And this last weekend was the first time people actually started noticing my belly. Just an update on some of the milestones I am experiencing as a pregger. Any guesses on what the baby will be?!

Maybe it's Cuz...

Maybe it's cuz I'm pregnant and emotional (but not overly so, I don't think), or maybe it's because G is out of town, but reading this post on the very popular Nie blog made me cry. I was so glad that she has a good husband to take care of her during this hard time and I was so glad knowing that my G would do the same for me, with the same amount of love, if he ever had to. I miss him.

I went to the doctors today and I was able to hear the "swoosh swoosh" of the baby's heart. I haven't actually heard the heart before, I've seen it on ultrasound but never had the sound filled my ears until today. I was sad that Grant wasn't there to hear it and when I texted him I heard the heart he texted back, "I'm jealous." At least while Grant is out of town, he left me a fetus to remember him by. He is so thoughtful.

This reminds me...

So, I went and purchased my first maternity pants and skirts and shirts that will accommodate me as I expand (which I've already done quite a bit of) and let me tell you, the moment I put those jeans on, I heard a heavenly choir break out in song. They were so much more comfortable than the old rubberband trick I had been using on my regular jeans. I was so grateful for maternity pants. That comfortable expandable band of spandex that looks so funny was a merciful blessing bestowed upon me by the clothing gods. Although putting them on changed my pregnant world forever, I couldn't help but think of this little video...

Is this my future?
