Girl or Boy? (One week countdown!)

I am almost 20 weeks pregnant! YAY!!! In one week, we head back to the doctor for our monthly check-up and for our in-depth ultrasound. During this scan not only do we find out the gender of Baby W (let the shopping begin!), but  we also get to make sure that everything is developing well and make sure our due date still makes sense. I am feeling really good (and really hungry), and my belly seems to be growing the right amount every week! I am also starting to feel some movement, which is amazing! Some days I feel more than others — it’s a hard feeling to explain, but it’s so amazing to feel Baby W swimming around. I can’t wait until his/her movements are stronger and I feel them more often.

The last week has been very busy! I spent Labor Day weekend in Knoxville with my mom, one of my best friends, and my soon-to-be-sister in law and her friends and family to celebrate my brother’s upcoming nuptials! The bridal shower was a lot of fun as was the bachelorette party. We got home early Monday, and I basically slept all day to recover. We decided to drive — almost 30 hours round trip — and I was exhausted. To say the least, I will be flying to the wedding in a few weeks! Work has also been a bit crazy — nothing too awful, just very busy!

Last night, my hubby surprised me with an amazing gift! We are heading to Chicago on Friday to go to a Cubs game at Wrigley Field!!! AHHHH, I am ecstatic! I love Chicago, and am a HUGE Cubs fan, but have never actually watched a game from inside the stadium. That will all change this Saturday — GO CUBBIES! We are also planning to eat dinner at a restaurant with an acclaimed chef who was just featured on (and actually beat) The Iron Chef. It’s going to be a great weekend 🙂

So, what do you think, is Baby W going to be adorned in Blue or Pink? I am leaning toward Blue, but most of my family is leaning in the other direction. Let the one week countdown begin!

  1. Being pregnant is such an amazing thing!
    I’m 28 weeks pregnant (with baby #2) and s/he had their legs closed during our midway ultrasound. Lets hope your babies are wide open!!

  2. I haven’t commented in a while but it is so great to see baby W grow. It will be fun to find out if baby W is a girl or a boy. Have a great time in Chicago and don’t lose your voice. 😉

  3. I’m so excited for you, sounds like you’re doing great! That movement is the best feeling! Have a great trip to Chicago!

    • Thanks, Tara!! Congratulations on your newest addition! He is beautiful ;-). I am thrilled for our trip, and very excited for Monday’s ultrasound!! Have a great weekend
