How far along - 18 weeks, due November 30th
Gender - We find out next month. Aria has switched from a baby brother to a baby sister prediction.
Cravings - Fruit, sweets, and baked potatoes.
Aversions - Fish. Turkey burgers, they are on the outs again.
Best moment - Winning a gift card to Pink Blush. I promptly ordered a dress and top, after much deliberation because there were too many pretty choices.
Looking forward to - Finding out the sex. Putting together a Baby #2 wish list. Feeling more movement.
Miss anything - Alcohol, energy, and being able to sleep comfortably.
Movement - I'm fairly certain the pops and wiggles are Baby #2, but I still haven't had that "absolutely certain" moment.
Other pregnancy symptoms - Exhaustion. Lower back pain. I had a day of hip pain as well, which was a reminder of how pleasant that is. But, I'm feeling pretty good and mostly normal.
Aria's thoughts -We have many talks about all the things that go along with Baby #2 - sharing toys, sharing mommy & daddy, being gentle, etc. And, she is still on board with the whole big sister thing. I asked her if she was excited for her baby brother or baby sister? She said "I'm always excited about that, and it's a girl baby you know."
