The Halfway Mark

Today marks twenty weeks into my pregnancy. I can’t believe I’m at this point already and we go in for our ultrasound today to check on baby’s growth, development and find out the gender!

I don’t know how, but we were really patient with our first and didn’t find out until Peyton was born. We did find out with Emory and decided to do the same this pregnancy mainly because I didn’t want to wait again. 🙂

Everyone has been asking if we think it’s a boy or girl and I honestly have no clue, but the only reason I would say girl is because this pregnancy has been a lot like my pregnancy with Peyton. I didn’t have any nausea, my boobs are more sensitive and I’ve just been hungrier. These similarities could mean absolutely nothing, but if I had to choose, that’s what I would base it on.

Peyton has her mind made up that it’s a girl. I told her that decision is not up to us and it’s in God’s plan whether or not it will be a boy or a girl. After telling her this, she came to me a couple of days later and said, “God told me it’s going to be a girl”. I guess she’s just a little smarty pants who really wants a sister.

Emory has started to say it’s a boy even though a couple of months ago he was telling me the baby was in his tummy – ha! So, he has no clue what’s going on, but I think he likes picking the opposite answer. I can’t wait to see their reaction today when we tell them! Luckily Peyton will have 20 weeks to let it sink in if it’s a boy.

Finding out the gender has been the big thing on our minds and everything else has been going well. I’ve started to feel the baby move a bunch, which is my favorite part. There’s nothing like those sweet baby kicks (even when they seem to be on speed at night!). Thanks to everyone for your kind words and well wishes. They mean the world to our family!
