{pregnancy diary: week 21}

  • That's right! We're having a boy!!! Andrew and I were both thinking it's a girl and we were pleasantly surprised. We went in last Friday for the ultrasound and all of the sudden, I saw a glimpse of something on the screen and said, "Is that what I think it is?" Sure enough it was! Our little guy was a little camera shy and kept moving his hands down there to hide, so it was a little tough to tell at first, but he's all boy!
  • With that said, I can't wait to start on the nursery! Finally! Have I decided on a color scheme? No, but at least I know where to start!
  • I'm still emotional as ever and feeling like a crazy lady at times. My sweet friends who've gone through this are quick to reassure me that I'm not the only one who's felt this way and it's normal. 
  • We bought a body pillow last week. I have no idea why I waited so long - it's glorious to sleep with and I'm so much more comfortable!
  • My new cravings are cheese (havarti, gouda, gruyere, sharp cheddar, & brie are my current favs) and pickled asparagus spears. I was wandering around Costco and found two huge jars of pickled asparagus for $8. Needless to say, I was in heaven and ate one jar in less than a week. Yum! I still love milk too but the potato craving has started to subside. 
  • I'm really starting to show & feel this little guy moving around more and more. Andrew still hasn't been able to feel him- hopefully soon!
  • Everyone keeps asking if we've thought of names- of course we have! However, we're keeping our pick on the down low until it's set in stone (aka written on the birth certificate). I'm hoping people will be respectful and if they don't like it to keep opinions to themselves! ;)
  • I've already started nesting and I'm trying to de-clutter and organize before it's too late! 
  • I can't wait to meet this little guy! Seeing him and feeling him move has made this all the more realistic- I can't believe this is really happening!

Congratulations! Boys are so so so so so much fun (I feel like I can say that since I've raised boys and a girl). Boys are way less drama and so good to their mamas. And they do the most hilarious things when they are toddlers and potty training. Plus, it is so fun to have a house full of Legos and sports and super hero boy stuff. I bet you will have such a ball decorating his nursery...
Can't wait to see pictures of it!
I know you will LOVE being the mama of a little boy:) I am very happy for you.
