22 WEEKS!!

22 weeks

I had my big sonogram today to check on the little munchkin….and to find out the sex….so for everyone out there who was dying to know…………….it’s a …………………………………………………………………………………………………….

JUST KIDDING…we stuck to our plan of not finding out  (Hee Hee). I know this is annoying to most people…I use to think people were crazy not to find out!!  I literally could not sleep at night wondering what my previous pregnancies were going to be…boy or girl!!  So maybe it is that I have one of each that I do not feel the need to find out…or maybe it is the last one so I would like for it to be a surprise?  I’m not sure of the reasoning…but anyway!!

 

So the baby is perfectly HEALTHY!!!  It weighs one and half pounds and was so darling on the screen!!  It kept opening it’s mouth and putting his hand near it’s eyes.  Little bitty feet kicking everywhere!!  So cute!  The due date is still October 13th…but we will induce 2 weeks early…around the 29th of September.

Caroline and Carter both are wanting the baby to sleep in their room… if we are still in this house.  Carter is excited to have the little boy in his room.  At first he wanted to make sure the little one would not be playing with all of his “treasures”…and when we assured him that the baby won’t be doing ANYTHING for a long while he was excited.  Caroline will be giving up her baby bed ( I know….yes, she is still in a baby bed) and we will be putting a “big girl” bed in her room.  She CAN’T WAIT for this baby to get here!  She talks to and kisses my tummy all the time!  She is already GIDDY with excitement!  She will be the best big sister EVER!!!

NAMES????  We honestly haven’t put a whole lot of thought in to names.  Does this happen to everyone on the 3rd child??? or is it just me???  No pouring over name books…baby bedding…any of that stuff!!  I am already feeling guilty!  All of the things I heard of with the 3rd child…that I swore would NOT BE ME…Is happening to me!!  I’m not sure if this child will even have a baby book J/K!!

So…Carter has named the baby Peter…and Caroline has named the baby Lucy.  We are reading the Chronicles of Narnia….and these characters are their heroes:)!!

CRAVINGS:  I have been craving anything spicy..Mexican at least 3 times a week is a MUST!!  Jalapenos with everything!!  Then after I feel disgusting for eating so much Mexican food…I stick to sandwiches.  Not home made sandwiches…I want the real thing..Panera Bread, Corner Bakery, Schlotsky’s, Subway!!  Our eating out budget has definitely tripled!!  My husband loves me for this…and of course I feel like I deserve it:)!  My aunt was telling me the other day, “Every time I talk to you…you are ordering food somewhere!!”  It is kind of an obsession…I wake up thinking about what yummy foods I get to eat today:).  So, I have gained…..19 pounds!!  This is right on track with the previous pregnancies.  I gained  50 and then 45 pounds with each one.

That’s it for my baby update…I was feeling guilty for not mentioning this little bitty thing in awhile…hmm, “mother’s guilt”…does it EVER go away???
