My pregnancy has finally felt like it is slowing down. Now we are playing the waiting game until we find out if our little one is a boy or girl. I go to the doctor next week for a regular checkup and we will get to schedule our ultrasound. I hope they'll do it at 18 or 19 weeks instead of waiting until 20 weeks like they did with Michael, who is a now a healthy 14 months old.
Michael never ceases to amaze me. There are times when he outsmarts both me and Jamie. He likes to hide things from us. We found my shoe in the kitchen cabinet, Jamie's cell phone in the seat of his ride-on car and my deodorant in the toy box!
I just found out that in two weeks my step-sister-in-law (my step-brother's wife) is having her baby shower! She is having a little boy sometime in September! Speaking of little boys, one of my close friends is having a baby boy sometime this month! She is due on the 30th but has already lost her mucous plug and is 2 cm dilated . . . she's hoping that he comes early!
The past few days have gone by with me doing nothing but stuffing my face! I have been sooooo hungry. Yesterday on my way home from work I stopped at Taco Bell and ate 2 soft tacos and a burrito, then went to mother-in-law's house and ate pork chops, green beans, corn and bread for dinner. It was ridiculous, but I was hungry! I know I need to watch what I eat so I don't gain too much weight. At my last doctor's appointment I had only gained 6 pounds total, so I'm hoping I haven't gained too much more these past few weeks. We'll find out next week!
