Good day, 'eh?
Here i am, 20 weeks in to this pregnancy. That's halfway, assuming this little ninja baby stays in until 40 weeks.
What to report? not much. Life is pretty regular around here... get up, feed Chewie, get Chewie to the sitter - go to work...work...come home from work...feed Chewie...play...get the little dude to bed... then relax maybe? sometimes??
It's different, this second pregnancy. The first time i had lots of time to think about the changes going on in my body, i was really on this "What week" pregnant i was... This time, not so much. In fact, if it weren't for Roz, my midwife, telling me last week that i was at 19 weeks and one day, i would have had NO idea that i was almost halfway. So, thanks Roz!
I'm not noticing as much movement as i did with Chewie, but that could be partly because i'm more distracted. Or it could be that 20 weeks is still pretty early. I do feel the fluttery kicks every now and then... and last weekend - when B-rad was out for the night, i was pretty sure that Artoo was having a party in there... he/she has not been that active since, and B-rad STILL has not felt the kicking.
When we found out we were pregnant with Chewie, B-rad said he didn't want to find out the sex of the baby, he wanted to be surprised. So, i agreed - knowing that if i found out and he didn't, i would somehow let it slip and would ruin it for him.
But this time, i said it's my turn. We are finding out.
And so this Thursday afternoon we have our 20 week ultrasound - to do things like check the position of my placenta (to see if it's low or not) and to measure... and to HOPEFULLY find out the gender of this little Artoo.
Both B-rad and i have very strong "Girl" feelings. I admit, i thought Chewie was a girl - more so i think i HOPED he was a girl, but felt deep down he'd be a boy... but this time, i say "She" all the time, and i just think "Girl".
Don't get me wrong, a little Baby Burrito would be just as welcome and loved as a little Baby Taco... but it would be nice to have the complete set. The salt and pepper shakers.
If you'll look on the right at the top of the page, you'll see i have craftily devised some kind of Blog-poll where YOU the READER can take a guess. Even though the ultrasound is Thursday afternoon, i will leave it open until Friday - mostly because B-rad, Chewie and i are going on a 10 hour road trip to Winnipeg...
HAVE WE GONE MAD!! OH EM GEE!?!?!
should be good times.
so, go and vote! :)
