Good morning baby!
One more week until our ultrasound. I'm counting the days!
Aunt Lori found out Tuesday that she is having a baby girl!! Your new cousin:) I still want you to be a surprise...it's hard knowing that I get to see you again in a week, and I could know what you are if I wanted! But I really, really love the thrill of hearing "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" right after delivery...makes the pushing worth it! SO I am pretty set on waiting.
You are moving all the time now...not just little kicks, but somersaults and stretching and hiccups. You have definite sleeping and awake time patterns. When I wake up in the morning you are usually curled up on one side of my tummy.Then after I get up and move around, you stretch out more to fill my whole belly.
Which, by the way, is getting GI-NORMOUS. Seriously, every time I pass by a mirror I think "a fat woman has hijacked my body!" I have to think about not waddling to avoid it..and I'm only 5 months! I wake up thinking about food, and new combinations to create. This is the first pregnancy I have actually eaten pickles and ice cream together. Sounds disgusting right now. But I didn't eat them alone, don't worry. I put pretzels on top. DEE-LISH!!
I am sure I want the name Hayden for a boy. Daddy hasn't made up his mind yet. He knows for sure he wants Lily, but he's not sure about Hayden. Too bad, I know I'm set on it:)
I have lots to do today to get our house ready for company tomorrow night. We are having the church over for dinner, and your big sister and I are going to be cooking all day for it. I am trying to plan lots of things between now and next Thursday to make the time pass quickly. I am very proud of myself for not spending the time worrying or stressing...any time I get a little nervous about things I pray hard for your little heart and kidneys. Daddy is convinced that when we go back to the doctor in a week everything will be fine. I am not so convinced, but I do trust God that He will help us either way.
I love you sweetie!
