Pregnancy is fun.
I probably wouldn't have said that between weeks 8 and 14.
and I'm pretty sure I won't proclaim it on a (semi) public forum between weeks 36-40...
However right now, I can honestly say:
I love being pregnant!
Most of the queasiness is gone.
I finally have a bit more energy.
I've got a baby bump, but I'm not huge and uncomfortable yet.
Even the heartburn hasn't hit full force.
Not only that,
but I have been feeling the little tyke swim around for a few weeks now.
Chase even got to feel a little kick.
We both loved it!
Besides giving birth and meeting the baby,
by far the best part of pregnancy is that ultrasound when you find out the gender.
With Beck, the ultrasound technician took his time in telling us the sex.
He kept pointing out different body parts and finally announced our boy.
This time the technician didn't waste any time.
She had barely slabbed the jelly on my belly before she said
"Look at that, its a BOY!!"
It happened so fast we were both taken aback.
I even said, Wait, Really??
Chase said "Are you sure?"
But there it was on that screen, loud and clear.
The surprise was short lived and we quickly exclaimed our excitement.
I have to tell you,
in the 3-4 days before our ultrasound,
Chase and I had totally convinced ourselves that we were having a girl.
The surprise of being wrong made the ultrasound so exciting!
I love how his whole body is rolled up like that. He is so cute already!
I can't wait to see Beck as an older brother.
I can just picture my two boys throwing rocks,
playing army guys,
and of course shooting hoops and throwing balls
to at each other.
People keep telling me that I have a wild couple of years ahead.
I am sure they are right,
and I can't wait!!!!
