Last weekend, Chase and I went down to Arkansas to party with friends and family. We decided to wait to find out if our baby is a he or a she until this party. It was so hard not peeking, but I can say that neither one of us knew ahead of time!
My cousin, Amy, was our secret keeper. She ordered the cake and had it iced so that we couldn't tell until we cut into it. :)
We are delighted to announce that we are having a little girl!! We couldn't be happier!
In these photos, I'm at 21 weeks.
This week I started my 22nd week of pregnancy. I can't believe I'm over half way through our pregnancy! I'm just happy and so grateful that our little M&M is healthy!
What's new this week? Well not too much! She's getting bigger and stronger, and all organ systems are completed. She's been kicking since week 18, but her wiggling is definitely getting more frequent. You can see her moving if you stare it my belly long enough. It's like having an alien inside your stomach... Speaking of my belly, our baby isn't the only one getting bigger....my belly is getting HUGE! I know it's only going to get bigger, but it just seems so big now. Some days I just feel really fat, but on other days...I feel more beautiful than ever. My body has changed so much to prepare for our little M&M. I'm just glad I can pretty much eat what I want now as the morning sickness has mostly passed. I've only had 1 bout of it over the last 4 weeks (while I was on a house call...of course).
Next week is Chase's thesis defense. Say a prayer for him on Thursday that he'll pass...and know what to do after! He has a job offer, but we just aren't sure about it. We could use God's wisdom.
Peace and Love, y'all!
