It kind of makes me feel bad for all of you who aren’t currently pregnant (so, most of you I’m guessing) because in my experience pregnancy isn’t nearly as interesting when you’re not currently experiencing it! But it kind rocks for everyone who is cause you’ve got tons of fashion advice to use and a bunch of sisters right there with ya!
Now, this is probably because I am with child but I find myself wanting to know more about everyone else’s pregnancies, so I thought it would be fun to start a little pregnancy tag to hear about all the goings on.
How far along are you? 19 Weeks today!
How did you find out? Well, no one really believed me about this but I swear I can feel the implantation! With both this baby and Christian I felt weird cramping right about when the baby would be implanting. Both times I was absolutely convinced it was a baby and took a positive pregnancy test a good week before I even missed my period!
Morning sickness? Yes. Lots and lots of it!
Are you finding out the sex?! YES! It’s a boy!!!!! ( was sure both times around that it was a girl before the ultrasound…shows what I know!) Nick and I were super excited, Christian was SO disappointed he was really rooting for a sister. He’s come around to the idea now but still asks me every once in a while if we can switch him for a girl! haha
Mood changes? Not anything huge. I feel like I’m definitely more weepy, pretty much anything even a little touching totally brings on the water works. Also, I feel a little more opinionated, in a way that I feel like EVERYONE needs to hear my opinion about everything. I usually don’t feel that way at all!
Cravings? Now that I’m mostly past the aversions I am starting to experience the CRAVINGS! Which are WAY more fun, but sometimes strange. I ate a whole jar of pickles in two days. Salt and vinegar chips. Club sandwiches (with the toasted bread).
Other symptoms? Tired constantly. My hair is thicker! My skin seems to be breaking out less. And I have gas. Sorry but it’s true, and so NOT fun!
Excited for!? That beautiful baby to come out, of course! I seriously am having MAJOR baby hunger. I just hear the word baby and I’m like “Where?! Get it in my arms!”
Nursery? Haven’t even begun on that yet!
Do you have a name picked out? Yes. When Nick and I were dating he told me he wanted to name his son Will. I loved it. We are going to name him William and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna call him Billy:)
Any Pregnancy MUST HAVES? I really don’t know! I kinda want to buy that pregnancy pillow that people rave about but I’d really like to hear if anyone has some good advice on that!
OK so I wanna hear from any of you who are pregnant too! And I’m gonna tag Amber at Barefootblonde.com since she’s almost done!
Hope I didn’t bore any of you too much with all this baby talk:)
