The weather here in MN is FINALLY feeling more and more like spring... most of our snow has melted, and many people (including Mr. D) are now walking around without a coat. Welcome, spring! I've been waiting for you :)
Here's my update at 19 weeks:
Best Moment of the Week: Finding out that we are having a BOY! Best experience ever, especially being a fellow IFer. I know so many people have different opinions about finding out vs. waiting for the surprise at birth, and I respect both sides of the argument. For us, finding out was AMAZING. Not only can we now plan, prepare, and refer to our baby as a "he," but we can now focus the whole birth process (which is bound to be full of surprises in and of itself) on welcoming him to our family.
Entertaining Question/Comment of the Week: "Are you absolutely SURE that's a penis?" You can imagine where, when, and how many times that question was asked.
Obsessions: Starting to think about the bedding for the nursery - I haven't found exactly what I like yet, so I am getting obsessed with finding a set we love.
What I am Most Looking Forward to This Week: Totally non-pregnancy related... Mr. D's bonus. He has a pretty awesome bonus potential with his company, and we are dying to know what his take-home will be. He should find out what his check amount will be this week, and given that his company did really well this year, we are expecting a pretty large check. Keeping fingers crossed.
What I Miss the Most: Still missing old clothes... I am off to a maternity consignment shop today to purchase a few more basics. I only have a few things that fit, and I am sick of wearing my maternity black T-shirt, which I have now worn 4 days in a row.
Symptoms: Stuffy nose, big boobs (with tons of blue veins at the surface).
