Our ultrasound tech told us at 12 weeks she predicted girl - and these days the predictions are usually right because the picture is so clear. We've been calling the baby a she, talking about girls names, browsing girls clothes online, and I even went as far to take WAY more pictures of Hunter eating the pink frosted cake rather than the blue (we did both colors just in case...).
Right before walking into our appointment I had a nagging thought in the back of my head about how crazy it would be if my doctor miraculously said "it's a boy!" Obviously, having a girl would be just as exciting, but thinking about Hunter and a little brother so close in age just made my heart happy.
Well, it turns out Robert was thinking the same thing. After the appointment, we sat in the car and confessed that we both had the same thoughts going into our appointment but that we didn't want to admit it.
I guess it's time to start thinking about boy names, huh?
I am finally feeling pregnant these days. My work clothes are getting snug and I am getting comments here and there about my belly that's definitely popped. Dresses are my best friend and I catch myself holding the belly and clutching my back when standing too long. I am having to get up more often to walk during the days I am sitting in my office in front of the computer.
Baby is kicking away and rolling around, which always makes pregnancy sweet. It's fun to unwind at the end of the day and watch he/she poke around in there. Can't wait to see all your limbs on Friday, baby2
Baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He/she is also around 6 1/2
inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — about the size of a banana. He/she is swallowing more these days, which is good practice for the digestive
Tonight after dinner Hunter took his first steps! He is very wobbly, but he did it! Of course once I got my phone out to take a video he was tired guy and ready for bed, but here are a couple videos I captured. You can also hear Hunter speaking his own language around the 26 second mark on the first video - hilarious.
Today we saw baby #2 move from the outside and Robert felt him/her too - double whammy! He/she is really active tonight and it feels good. I've been feeling movement for weeks now, but it's all been very random and gentle. Seems as though there HAS been a growth spurt in the last week and this baby is getting strong!
Here are some random pictures of Hunter from last night and today.
This guy was so pooped, he went to bed at 5:45pm. Let's hope he doesnt wake us up at 4am :)
