Only one week from Monday and we go to find out the baby's sex! Of course, that's assuming it'll cooperate with us. ;) The first 12 weeks or so, I really wanted another girl. She would be almost exactly 2 years younger than Hannah so it'd be a close-in-age sister and friend. She would also be born during the same time of the year and I'd already have plenty of clothes in all the right seasons. So practically, it'd work out well. However, I've since convinced myself (as I did with Hannah), that the baby is a boy. Mainly because of how different this pregnancy has been from the one with Hannah and how much I'm eating. ;) Don't worry...I'm not gaining massive weight - I'm right about on target for where I should be. I just feel hungry more than I remember with Hannah. Supposedly, the average mother pregnant with a boy consumes 200-300 more calories a day. Interesting... Then, I think I just want a boy to know we will be able to have one. Aggg.... So... all that to say... I don't know how I'll respond either way when they tell us what the sex is! We'll see! Here's the latest "belly pic" at 17 weeks.
These next two weeks will be extremely busy for me on the business side. I have several Premier Designs shows as well as a few Pampered Chef shows as people prep for Christmas. Then there are the usual Christmas parties, church events, family gatherings and my birthday. I think I'll finally be able to breathe again after Dec. 14th. Speaking of the 14th, I'm having a huge jewelry sample sale at our house with everything 40% off from 1-3p. Let me know if you'd like to join. It'll be fun. ;)
Well, I think I've written enough again! Have a wonderful, joy-filled week!
Until next time...
