When is your due date? My due date is May 31, 2013. I was induced with Olivia 4 weeks early due to pre-eclampsia so I would love to go to 40 weeks and low blood pressure with this baby!
Will Andrew be here for the birth? At this point it doesn't look like Andrew will be home till about 8 weeks after the baby is being born. That being said, we don't really ever know what the Lord has planned. It is in His hands, and we know His will is perfect and beyond anything we could ever ask or think.
How am I feeling? I hate complaining. The truth is, I am absolutely thrilled to be pregnant, and don't want it to seem like I'm ever not happy. While I love being pregnant, I just really don't love the morning sickness. The first 4 weeks I threw up 3 to 4 times a day/throughout the night. I felt sick all the time. My nose was on super smell and if I accidentally smelled the refrigerator or something unpleasant I would throw up immediately. When I went to my first appointment at 9 weeks they gave me a prescription for Zofran and it has been a MAGIC pill. I really don't like taking medication when I'm pregnant. I'm not sure if I ever even took one Tylenol when I was pregnant with Olivia. BUT if I don't take it I throw almost everything up that I eat that day. I decided it was more important for me to eat and get nutrition, than to not take a pill. Even with the pill I try to eat every 3 hours to keep the nausea away, and I still throw up every morning after I wake up and still sometimes before bed. (I had morning sickness with Olivia, but nothing like this!) I will gladly throw up every single morning for 9 months if it means I have a healthy sweet baby at the end of this!
Do you want a boy? I hope I don't sound cliche, but we would be happy with whatever the Lord gives us. The more I think about it the more excited I get about either option! I love being a girl mom, and it is very easy for me to picture being a mom to two sweet girls that I can dress alike. I love bows, pink, dresses, and all things girly! Adding one more to the mix would be so fun! That being said, I would love a little boy just as much. I have 13 boys nurseries planned in my head, and can't help but think how fun it would be for Andrew to have his little boy! I felt like Olivia was a girl during the pregnancy, and I definitely have a pretty strong feeling with this one too!
Will you find out what you are having? YES! Since Andrew won't be here for the big gender reveal, I decided instead of being bummed and sad at the appointment, I was going to plan a fun reveal around my family being home for Christmas. We find out the day after Christmas and my whole side of the family will be in the room for the big ultrasound! I absolutely adore my Doctor's office and they have set up Skype in their office so Andrew will be there for the big reveal too! They have made it clear they will open the office early, or come in whenever necessary just to work around Andrew's schedule.
Is Olivia excited? Yes! She tells everyone about the baby in mommy's tummy and how she is going to rock it and love it. I'm not sure she absolutely completely understands everything, but what she does understand she is excited about. When we ask her if it is a boy or girl, she just replies "I AM the girl, and NATE is the boy, and the BABY is a baby!"
We are thrilled the Lord blessed us with another sweet baby Currie! I look at Olivia and just want to cry thinking about how I get to have another one! I can hardly wait till we are back together as a family of 4.
