Weeks 19, 20 and 21: And the Pattern Continues!

Confession.  A few days ago, it suddenly dawned on me that I hadn't written a pregnancy post in quite some time.  I couldn't even remember what the last post was that I'd written!  Wow.  I won't lie, I feel I've been trying to get my head out from under water since the end of March.  Honestly, most of the things that have pulled me under are simple, random, everyday life things (e.g. phone calls to insurance companies, housework, bill discriminations, and a few birthday parties in the midst).  It just seems it's been almost nonstop for about two months now, with few signs of letting up.  We have two more weeks of homeschooling before we take about a month or so break.  Lord-willing, we'll be going to Florida in the beginning of July so that'll be a welcome vacation.  We just celebrated our last family birthday (until baby is due in the fall).  Our kids are now 7, 5, 3, and 17mo.

For those of you that are not close friends of mine, you may have missed the big gender reveal!  As reminder, our current children are a girl, boy, girl and boy (in that order).  The entire family (minus the five year old boy) were pulling for another girl to continue the gender pattern.  And to my great surprise - the baby IS a girl!!!  I couldn't believe it when the ultrasound tech pointed it out.  I figured there was just no way the pattern would continue.  So we're eagerly looking forward to meeting little Miss Abigail Grace this fall!

My midwife visit and checkups have gone well.  I've gained nearly 20 lbs already.  That would freak me out but I tend to gain most of my weight in the beginning of all of my pregnancies.  So I'm honestly not very concerned about it.

Last weekend we went to Western Kentucky for a family reunion of sorts.  We got to see many of my aunts and uncles that I haven't seen in at least six years (some of them more!).  It was busy and there was not much sleep to be had but I enjoyed the trip overall.

Until next time...

Take care,
