Yesterday we had THE ultrasound. Superman was STOKED. I was pretty excited, but more to see it moving around and alive and healthy and stuff. I think it’s just fun to see it rolling around in there doing weird things.
|I love this chalkboard…|
After we found out, we notified the necessary parties and then I took a very nice nap. After that, we met up with my photographer who is helping me chronicle this whole thing! She takes some of the best raw pictures I’ve seen.
I had an idea as to what it was, Superman didn’t share his intuition but claimed to be correct after the fact, sure….
Before I announce the pink or blue (unless you’ve seen the picture in your reader already)… I’m going to do my very first survey.
How far along? 20 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I gain/lose approximately 5-6 lbs a day so it’s a little hard to tell. But, for the most part, I haven’t really gained more than the 5lbs I gained when I bloated up at 7 weeks.
Maternity clothes? I own them, in various shapes and sizes. I occasionally wear real clothes… but they’re slowly not fitting anymore. Regular pants are a legitimate no-go and haven’t been worn since week 7 when I bloated out and gained my 5 lbs.
Stretch marks? They’re getting darker.. but they have been there ever since I started swimming. But, it appears I may have a new few on my sides. Whatever.
Sleep: Eh. I want to sleep, I really want to. My new body pillow is helping.
Best moment this week: Pink or Blue!
Movement: Oh, it’s there. It likes to lay sideways and rest on my hips, bouncing from one to another. It likes laying on my bladder occasionally and I can sometimes feel the kicks and such. They are not completely overwhelming so that’s good.
Food cravings: Hah. Cheeseburgers, steak, mint oreos, frozen grapes, more cheeseburgers, bacon, milk, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese cubes, more cheese and burgers. Basically if it’s red meat or dairy, I’m down.
Gender: Well, we have been calling it D’Artagnan but you’ll just have to wait to see if we were right or wrong.
Labor Signs: I’d be terrified.
Belly Button in or out? Innie but it’s getting shallower.
Wedding rings on or off? Off.. I only wear them for a few hours at a time, then I have to take them off.
What I miss: Not being sore.
What I am looking forward to: Baby Showers.
Weekly Wisdom: You can’t fix stupid. (my patience is wearing thin at this point).
Milestones: Gender reveal (and 20 weeks!)
Well, here goes nothing…
|We were right!! Baby Danger is a boy!
(and a very obvious boy from his ultrasound picture)
And no, we don’t have a name, it’s a work in progress. And even if we come up with a name, I seriously might not share it with anyone. It’s my kid and I can name it whatever I want…. like Bazel. If I want to name my child Bazel and run around sporting a fake British accent, I’m gonna do it. By the way, it means from a kingly family… we legitimately contemplated it, lol but I think we’ve passed.
