I am so excited to share we found out this morning that Nolan is going to have a baby BROTHER!
Last week was horrible, stressful and down right exhausting. I did my best to remain calm and keep my blood pressure where it belongs. I force fed myself every day no matter how weak my appetite was and got as much sleep as I could. This past week has been rough but this little bit of awesome news just made our day. We needed this. I promise, I have been taking care of this baby to the best of my ability. (16 weeks, 6 days)The baby is still measuring ahead and as my Dr puts it, looks perfect so far. I am 17 weeks tomorrow and for the first time I felt a sigh of relief. A little glimmer of hope that this baby is going to be one big baby and arrive in December as planned. We can only hope, right? The little guy is measuring about 6 ounces and it's amazing to think that is almost half the size of Nolan. And in just 3-4 weeks, this baby will be measuring Nolan's size. Amazing.
My gem of a ultrasound tech spent a lot of time with us as usual and got a ton more pictures to add to our growing pile. I need a photo album for our bi-weekly ultrasounds, I'm running out of room on our fridge.We agreed I could be an u/s sonographer by the end of this pregnancy, I'm getting good at pointing stuff out. I honestly LOVE going to my Dr's office because everyone treats this baby with as much love as we already have for it. It just makes me smile.
So today I did something I told myself I wouldn't do this pregnancy. I bought something for the baby. I just couldn't help it. I had fallen in love with this diaper bag at the Coach Outlet just weeks after finding out we were pregnant. I lusted over it because it's my favorite blue and it's simple. I talked myself out of it because... well many reasons. Expensive for a freaking diaper bag, what if it's a girl, what if this baby starts measuring small... what if, what if, what if. We walked into Coach Outlet today and low and behold the bag that wasn't there just a few weeks after I saw it the first time, was hiding in the clearance section behind 3 other bags. I couldn't help myself, it's perfect even though it's more than I would want to spend.
Come on, I got a $400 diaper bag for.... freaking $100! I'm in love and I am so proud of myself for allowing myself to buy something... "baby"
