To answer some questions, the due date is November 15th. I'm almost 22 weeks so more than halfway there! This pregnancy has been very different than the first 2. I was SUPER tired the whole month of March and part of April. My doctor did say I was taking care of 2 kids but it wasn't like I was running around with them everywhere. I was just sitting there all day. It took all my energy just to get off the couch! Eating was difficult. This pregnancy was just different. I had hopes and an inkling that maybe, just maybe it meant it was a girl.
For those who don't know, Landon was supposed to have been a little girl. We were told, "I've been doing this for 10 years, I have 3 girls, that's a girl." And a week before Landon was born, oops, it's a boy! We're actually pretty sure this is really going to be a girl but in the back of my head, I'm thinking, what if!
Although the ultrasound technician told us we were having a girl, we were/are still a little skeptical. It was actually quite funny. The woman told us, "well, it looks like ... a girl!" And there was complete silence. No excitement, no smiles, no nothing! I think my mom asked, "are you sure?" It wasn't like we weren't excited, we were just, like I said, skeptical. Because, come on, we've been told that before! I did explain to her that our little girl before is now a cute 3 year old boy just so she didn't think we were totally not thrilled to finally be getting a little girl.
When John and I got home and told everyone, it still didn't seem real. Even calling it a she seemed like we might jinx it! I caught myself calling her a he or it. It almost seems like if you start calling it a she, she's going to change on you! I know that's not going to happen but maybe it's really a boy in there! He was just really good at hiding his stuff! I sure know Landon was!
Well, at least this time, there is hope that I can once again get out all that girl bedding and put it to good use. I was asked many times after Landon was born what I was going to do with all that little girl stuff. I let them know that we were going to keep it and wait till we had a girl. Well, the time has hopefully come that we will use it. You can even see it here since we posted it before! Now, if only we had planned on a May baby girl since all the girl clothes are for spring and not at all for the winter time when she's (oops I just jinxed it again) due.
