Big U/S day.....It's a .............................

Well, we had an ultrasound today. I was soooo sure it was a girl. I’m carrying low, it’s been an easy pregnancy, mimicking Kaylee’s pregnancy to a “T”.

I got to Colleen's office, and her technician started checking the gender for me. I told her that I wanted to see it...don't tell me. So, they turned the monitor towards me, and showed me the legs. Then, the tech started to scan upward and asked if I knew what I was looking at. I said "yea" .........I saw something sticking out in between the legs. I said “What the hell is that?” and pointed to it. The tech responds “well, it’s called a …..” I said, “Yeah, I know what it’s called, but why does my baby girl have one?”

WOW, it’s a boy??? Never saw that one coming. So, we originally wanted Jayde for this child, regardless of gender. Now we are trying to decide if Jayde is manly enough for this little guy. Chris and I both like Grayson, and I also like Layton but it sounds funny with our last name.

17 weeks, 3 days

I went to the neurologist and he said my headaches were probably from lack of sleep. Duh, Like I can get any more sleep with the kids around!!! I also saw a commercial that said Zyrtec caused drowsiness, and it dawned on me that the reason I was still so tired was probably because of that. So, I switched back to Allegra and wha lah…. Not tired any more. No more headaches either, so I guess that worked. I broke the 20 lb mark already!!! EEK!!! I am watching what I eat and exercising, so I don’t know what to think of all the weight gain. I guess I’ll just deal with it afterwards…. We have an U/S on Jan 31 so hopefully, we will be able to find out the gender!!! 8 days to go!!!!

New Year, New Beginnings

I haven’t posted in a while. We had a good Christmas, a good New Years, and Chris had a good birthday. I finally made it back to the gym this week. I started back on Monday and I have gone every day. We got Brayden’s big boy room all done! YAY! He looks so tiny sleeping in his bed. He’s like 30” and the bed is like 72” so he looks very tiny. Especially since his room looks so big. I’m in week 16 now. I’ll finish off week 16 on Sunday. I went to the Dr on Wednesday. She wants me to go to the neurologist. I have unexplained headaches that don’t go away with Tylenol or sleep. They last about a day and a half, so for precautions, she wants me to go. According to their scale, I only gained 4 lbs over the holidays, but mine said 7. I think their scale was way off last visit, which would explain the difference. On their charts, I have gained 11 lbs total. On mine, I have gained 17. It sucks to gain so much, but a lot of it was Holiday weight, so now that those are over, maybe I’ll be able to taper off to only a few lbs per month….yah right… Easier said than done. We got to hear the heartbeat. It was 158. I think that is supposed to mean it's a girl??? I am finally able to go all day without taking naps. I am ready for bed by 9 though, so I guess it’s a fair tradeoff. Maybe the aerobics really helps too. I finally got to go to the pilates class this week. It was good. I am NOT limber, but I guess it will come over time. All in all, things are good. Not much new to post though until we know the gender!!!
