K Cat suggested I do a crazy face for my 4 month picture! Last week I hit the four month mark of this pregnancy. The first four months have been rocky with emotions and sickness but, aside from an occasional off day, I feel like I am finally pulling out of that phase and ready to move onto the fun part of pregnancy! My workouts are back to being enjoyable. I am now wearing only maternity clothes and have successfully finished that awkward stage of looking chubby instead of pregnant. Thankfully my appetite has returned -- I can't stop eating!!! However, I feel like I have mostly been able to return to the healthy diet I had before pregnancy of mainly fruits and vegetables. I am feeling good and happy to have those first four months of this pregnancy behind me -- as I am sure the rest of my family are also glad to have their mommy and wife back again!!!
I have felt the baby move a couple times this week as I lay down at night. It is a great feeling knowing there is a little person growing stronger inside of me each day. The movements have been very faint and only come when the world is quiet and I am minutes from falling asleep. In three weeks we find out the gender of this baby. I can not wait!!! I am so anxious to find out if we are having a boy or girl this time around. Little Z and I think it's a boy, K Cat and Lou Who are convinced it's a girl, Sweet Pea and Dave have no idea. We will see who is correct. Three weeks can't come soon enough for me!
