I’ve passed the half way mark and am now a little over 5 months. Kind of crazy to me how fast this time has gone! Baby has been quite active since 18 weeks and I love feeling the little flutters in my stomach. I had a normal appetite up until 19 weeks when I was a hungry hungry hippo and that’s also when my bump grew the most. I don’t have any weird cravings but I eat a lot of fruit! I can’t get enough of it.
We also found out a couple weeks ago what we are having…
Funny thing is when I first started telling friends and family that I was pregnant, everyone assumed I wanted a girl probably because I’m so girly myself but I’ve never had a strong desire for a girl or a boy even before I was pregnant. I’ve never been the girl who thought about dressing up her daughter and doing all sorts of fun girly things. I quite honestly just wanted a healthy baby regardless of the gender. When we found out it was a girl I think everyone else was more excited about it being a girl than I was. Although not my husband, he was pretty sure it was going to be a boy 🙂 Not that I’m not excited but because I didn’t lean either way, I wasn’t whooping or hollering for either gender. I was just glad to finally be able to buy stuff for the baby!
My sister bought her this little coat, it’s my favorite thing ever! It’s got a bow on the back too. And I had to get her these adorable skinny jeans. How could I resist?
Thanks so much for all the kind words and advice during my pregnancy. I so appreciate it and am happy to be sharing this journey with you all!
