Boy or Girl?

We should find out Friday. Any guesses?

I have no preference. The only thing I would like is to hear all healthy, so I can exhale a huge sigh of relief. My "intuition" has had me thinking boy all along. So has the husband's. Therefore, we should probably expect to hear "It's a girl!".

I am a bad blogger, and have nothing to write a whole post about recently. But, lucky you, I have random thoughts to pass the time.

Pregnancy=sex dreams. Score.

I am actually going to fill out my bikini top this summer.  Huge Score!

I think my dog is prejudice. Come to think of it, I should write a full post on this.

I'm back at the gym now. I notice that my treadmill is set slower than the senior citizens in front of me. I always hope no one else is paying attention.

I sometimes let random shortened words make their way into emails to people that do not frequent message boards. I then wonder if they think my e-mail has been hacked by a 7th grade girl.

One year ago.

It was a year ago today when we found our baby no longer had a heartbeat. I know this isn't the type of anniversary one likes to remember, but it is obviously one I will never forget.

I can remember details like it was yesterday. The way the nurse said, "There's no hearbeat, just air."
Wanting to scream at the RE when he was asking me questions about my ob's office that I could never even answer under normal circumstances. How I collapsed against the wall in the hallway after we left the RE's office. Climbing into bed that afternoon and basically staying there for weeks.

Something else I will never forget? The amazing support you all gave and have continued to give to me in my journey. Thank you. I am forever grateful.

And he claims to be a butt man.

Me: You have to look at the photos you took of my bump. You can really tell a difference.

Husband: Oh yeah.....We should have taken pictures of your boobies. They've doubled in size.

::pause to grab::

Well, at least this one.

Speaking of bump photos, thanks for all the love on my last post. You sure know how to make me smile.

Bump photos

Disclaimer: All of these photos were taken at the end of a day. So, I think know the bump/bloat is much bigger than it would be if I took them first thing in the morning before chowing down.

I know I should have taken some earlier ones as a before comparison. I thought about it, but decided I was too scared to do so. It sucked royally to have to delete those "belly" shots off my camera and computer last time. So, I began when I first spotted some bloat. Oh, and the week I missed? Not on purpose. So, here you have it. 9, 10.5, 13 & 14 week bumps. I will be 15 weeks tomorrow! Time is flying.
