We only have 6 more days until we find out if we’re having a boy or a girl! I can’t wait!! Mainly, I just want to see a picture of our little one again. Lots of people have asked me if I prefer one or the other. I honestly don’t care. As cliche as it may sound, I really just want the baby to be healthy. I asked Richie the other night if he had a preference, and he said he honestly doesn’t. I’m sure deep down he wants a boy, but I know he would never say that. What man doesn’t want a son? 🙂
I think I’m about to officially graduate to wearing 100% maternity clothes. I was hoping I would be able to wear my capris and shorts until the weather got colder, but I don’t think I’m going to be able to fit in them any longer. I use the belly band sometimes, and it works great. But, the maternity pants are easier and more comfy. My mom bought me a pair of maternity jeans from Motherhood and they are to die for. I still don’t really look pregnant. I just look thick around the middle and chubby. But, I’m definitely not complaining! I’ve felt what I think are little kicks a couple more times this week, but I’m still not 100% sure. I do know that my appetite is insatiable… I can eat all day and still be hungry. I’m trying to make healthy choices, but I fail about half the time! In the first trimester, I ate lots of fast food since that’s the only thing that tasted good to me. I’ve cut most of that out now that my taste-buds have almost returned to normal. I haven’t had any crazy cravings, but I definitely get nauseous at the thought of a chick-fil-a sandwich or pretty much any kind of salad. I’ll go to a restaurant and order a salad to try to be healthy. But, I have to force myself to eat it. I usually only get through 1/4 to 1/2 of the salad. On Monday night, I went shopping for our groceries for the week, and was really craving a rotisserie chicken. Well, the deli at the supermarket was sold out for the day. So, I finished my shopping and drove to another store down the street to see if they had one. There was one left!! I was so excited. Pre-pregnancy I couldn’t imagine going to 2 grocery stores in 1 night just to find a roasted chicken!
