One week from today we will be seeing if Baby #3 is a he or a she. No, I do not like surprises so yes, I will be finding out gender.
I cannot wait!
I can’t wait to buy gender styled cloth diapers and clothes and bedding and just go crazy with gender specific items.
I have been feeling pretty good. I don’t feel a lot of kicking just yet, but #3 certainly lets me know they are there. There is constant movement of some sort – especially when I’m doing extended walking (ie: shopping). I usually pay for that in some movement or another (I’m guessing this one will be like me and hate shopping!)
Sleep has been okay besides the two to three times I have to get up to pee. (I do not miss that!)
Acid reflux is starting to settle in. I don’t recall having the acid reflux the first time (just lots of heartburn towards the end), but I do recall the reflux with my son and I don’t recall it being this early on, but then again, this whole pregnancy appears to be doing whatever it wants, whenever it wants.
The PUPs appears to be getting worse before getting better which really sucks because it won’t go away until after baby is born. When I had it in my first pregnancy, they went away immediately after birth and I am so counting down those day!
The picture shows my right arm. That is the worst. And nothing. gives. me. relief. It is torture. We have tried maximum strength itch cream. We have tried maximum strength Cortaid. We have tried lavender. Nothing. I just purchased some calamine lotion so that is my next choice, but I will be asking for a prescription at my next appointment. I cannot survive the next 20 weeks without some type of relief!
The kids are getting excited. Buddy keeps hugging my belly and when I wince in pain from the rolling around #3 is doing, Buddy runs up and tries to feel it. I can’t wait until he can feel his baby brother/sister moving!
We still have not agreed on a girl name either… I guess if we find out next week that it’s a girl, we’ll really have to start cracking down with this name business.
Oh, and of course Buggy wants a sister and Buddy wants a brother. Only time will tell!
