Somehow I am 41% complete with this pregnancy already.. I'm not sure how that is since I fell like I'm still in my first trimester the time is dragging on so slowly lol. I realize that soon once I hit that 20 week mark it'll start flying by until around 32 weeks but so far wow slowest moving pregnancy ever! I think it's because I've been so excited to do the ultrasounds and the appointments that I just keep sitting around waiting and waiting for every 4 weeks to pass so I can go to the doctor and check on baby lol Also with my first born we decided not to find out the gender until birth so I really wasn't anxiously awaiting my 20 week appointment like I am right now. OMG I am so excited to find out what we are having lol With my son I knew right away that he was a boy despite every single person in my family telling me they thought I'd be having a girl but my instinct was right all along and we ended up with a boy. With this baby my gut has always told me girl but every other person is now telling me boy and so I am doubting myself a little. I think they are being a little unfair anyway since everyone WANTS me to have a boy since my sister in law tried three times for a girl and ended up with 3 boys so it apparently wouldn't be fair for me to be able to have 1 of each "rolling my eyes" Whatever it will be what it will be and I will be thrilled no matter what :) I just really want to know already lol :P

Other than that nothing new or crazy has been happening. This pregnancy is really freaking me out so far only in the way that things are so totally normal and comfortable I literally don't feel like I am pregnant ever. Some mornings I wake up and my belly looks huge and then other mornings I look completely normal still. My morning sickness has been gone for 4 weeks now and I don't have any other symptoms. With my son it seemed every single thing on my body was changing and hurting constantly but this one is way easier. I'm feeling movement every now and then already which has been fun and I listen to the heart beat once a week on the doppler I have at home which is the only thing that confirms to me that I actually am pregnant ha!

I start my once a week progesterone injections this thursday so I'm glad to be getting on with that which might help me have a little peace of mind as I get farther along. I definitely want to try for that nice normal birth experience this time getting to take my baby home right away and not having to deal with healthy complications but I can only pray and the rest is up to God. Anyway just a little update since it has been awhile and I guess I'll update again when we know the gender! we find out June 13th :D hopefully these weeks fly by! But not too fast since my baby boy will be turning 2 that day also! I can't believe he is already 2!

I totally know what you mean like it’s fine if you think I’m having one or the other but keep it to yourself and quit saying “ oh yes it’s definitely a boy I carried the exact same way with only boys blah blah” it’s just irrelevant and annoying lol! But I agree it’s perfectly fine for people here to guess and give input I love it :)

When I say people's opinions, I mostly mean my in-laws. No one on here. haha.

This pregnancy has been pretty easy and so I thought maybe I was having a boy as with my boy I felt great,, but with my daughter I felt like crap. But I was surprised when I saw it was another baby girl. lol. I don't know why but I hate it that everyone has to give their 2 cents as to what it will be. Maybe it's because this is my third pregnancy and I just don't care what their opinion is. lol I'm so glad you're doing well! You look fantastic! <3

For me the Chinese calendar predicts girl! Calvin girl I know what you mean it seems like my whole family only makes boys so honestly it would be a miracle but a very welcome surprise :)

What does the Chinese calender say?

I'm hoping for a girl for you too. I want a girl, but I think I only make boys, so I'll seriously be shocked if we have a girl.
