Never a good sign when your belly protrudes farther than your boobs......unless you're pregnant....

So this pregnancy has been so drastically different than my pregnancies with the girls. Besides it being a complete surprise, yadda, yadda, yadda..... I look so different with this one than with the girls. For this reason, I'm uncertain if I believe that this baby is a girl. Either this girl is going to be a complete tomboy, or this baby is a boy.

I need another sono techs opinion.
I get one in a month.
I can't wait a month.
Jake's making me wait a month.
It's hard.
I'm told patience builds character.
So I blog about it to help with the wait.

Differences in pregnancies:

Girls: I had a huge sweet tooth
This one: I love carrot and celery sticks

Girls: I gained weight fast from the beginning, and ended at +45 lbs each (might have something to do with that sweet tooth....)
This one: At 6 months I gained 4 lbs. Now at 7 months I've gained 8 lbs.

Girls: I jumped sizes in pants and jeans as my butt and hips got huge....almost elephant sized ;)
This one: I continue to go down sizes in pants and jeans as I fit into clothes I haven't worn since pre-Madelynn

Girls: No belly until about 5-6 months along
This one: Huge pokey belly at 3 months....accused of having twins/triplets many times

So funny tangent on the huge belly thing.... I was in Home Depot this week and the cashier was all:
Wow! You're about to deliver any day now!
No, I still have about 2 months left....
What?!?!?! No way! That baby's going to be HUGE!

Another tangent: I like huge babies! I hope all my babies are huge. It means they are really healthy, and I don't have to worry about them as much. Scrawny babies you have to worry about....are they eating enough?....Will the dog knock them over and they will be damaged forever?.....Are they sleeping too much? Big babies you can just not worry about.....they are of a tougher breed.

So in conclusion of my long discombobulated can I talk Jake into letting me get a 3D/4D sonogram soon? ;P


  1. I totally agree about having huge babies. It was so much easier with Diara than it is now with Demari because he's just so small and he seems so much more fragile. As for getting Jake to let you get an ultrasound soon: bribe him....or blackmail. Bwahahaha!

  2. LOL...I thought you looked great when we saw you! Maybe you could just tell Jake that you need to have a 3D/4D ultrasound for keepsake purposes. This is the only time he/she will be in there and then you can compare the pictures to the baby after birth. Maybe you could try the Intelligender. You can get them at Walgreens and I think they advertise 80% accuracy. It would be interesting to see if it was right or not...
