Yup. And YAY! I am hoping that my bun looks more like a really small child than a yeasty roll and my oven looks a little smaller when this is all said and done, but Nick and I are having a mini-us. We’re pretty excited! I am 14 weeks along and got to hear the heartbeat for the second time today. It’s pretty surreal. The first three months were kind of rough…but I know it could have been worse. Lots of sickness and I had a hard time staying awake to finish a 30 second conversation. A week ago, POP! My energy returned, kind of. And I feel way better, kind of. As long as I feed the beast and don’t get hungry, nobody gets hurt. I am REALLY excited to start showing. Right now I just look like I had a really good Holiday season. I was at the gym last week (yeah, seriously) and I looked down and saw my flabby little belly hanging out. I was mortified and vowed never to return again. Ok, not true. I will go back. Ugh, I must or this can only get worse.
In the beginning, I wanted a girl SO badly because (and this is the only reason) I thought their clothes were cuter. Not even pretending to joke about that. But now, I really think that it is a little dude and I am really excited about it. Whatever “it” (who we affectionately named “Emilio” until we meet it) ends up being, I just hope he or she is a healthy little bean. Nick wants a girl because he heard that they are potty trained faster but he wants a boy because they are better at guitar, statistically. Allegedly. Ha. We WILL be finding out what we are having on March 8th. I am not much of one for waiting around. We figured we would be surprised enough to have a baby that knowing the sex ahead of time will be quite alright.
Nick has started calling Gus “Second Class” to get him ready, but I refuse to accept that will happen. So on that note, I have dinner waiting in the other room and I might lose my cookies all over this blog post if I don’t satisfy this mean, mean monster.
