Hello!!! Thought I'd stop by and write again. Nothing too exciting to update on. I don't feel any bigger since the last time I took a picture...so no new news there!
On the upside, in 10 days, exactly, we will be on our way to the doctor to find out the gender of this little one! I seriously cannot believe it's RIGHT around the corner. It's about time!!!! I cannot wait any longer! It's been interesting hearing everyone's opinions about this. My mom is completely opposed. She would rather us wait and let it be a surprise. The lady we went to, to file our taxes, said the exact same thing. But then a lot of other people are DYING to know the sex. I don't think it'll take away any of the excitement, what-so-ever, if we find out the gender beforehand. We're still going to have a wonderful blessing either way, and that's all that matters. I am just overly excited to find out, decorate, and be able to call my baby by it's name :).
I've been having tons of weird feelings going on. It's irritating sometimes, not knowing what a certain feeling is. Stretching, pulling, poking feelings. Never know if it's the baby or things shifting around to make room for the baby.Never know if it was a feeling I was SUPPOSED to feel, or not. All in all, I know it's normal, but that doesn't change the fact that I'm a worry wart and worry about every thing I feel. The other day in H&R Block, Ethen and I were sitting in the waiting room and the whole left side of my upper abdomen started vibrating, almost like the baby was having a seizure. It actually felt really cool, but when it started happening, I looked at Ethen like a deer in headlights, wondering what the heck was going on! Ha!! Sometimes I wish we had an ultrasound machine at our house so I could just peek in on the baby from time to time. Ha ha, I'm sure I'll get used to most of it...but until then, it's all so new, and I'm trying to process it all!!! Besides all of the "weird" feelings, I'm experiencing not so fun hip and back pain (still) Nurse has suggested physical therapy since the pain is sometimes unbearable...but I'm waiting it out, to see if it'll ever improve a little. :)
Ethen's parents were in town last weekend. We started working and finishing one of our basements, and it's looking great! I can't wait until it's finished!!! We were very thankful they came down and helped us! This weekend my brother is in town for the first time in forever, and we're going to go to dinner tonight, wish me luck as I'm going to eat hot wings. The baby is going to be very angry (as we've experienced it before) after I'm done. I don't know if it's so much the BABY, as it is my heartburn!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I better wrap this up.....hope everyone is doing well :) I'll update soon!!!
