So they say that with every pregnancy you pop out faster feel the baby earlier all that stuff.....and that is SO true with this one. I think part of it is I have never been this thin so I think I am noticing things earlier. Even with Noah I was 60 pounds heavier at the start of my pregnancy.....SO glad to not be carrying that around for the first time!!
So here I am at 14 weeks! Mind you this is after a huge salad at Cafe Rio. I don't feel like I look this pregnant every day but some days it is. Must depend on what I am wearing.
(excuse the poor quality photo taken with my phone I promise I will take a better one!)
This baby has already given me a few heart attacks and I am not even half way! We were worried this week......the baby was testing positive for Down Syndrome. But after a second ultrasound with a specialist everything looks good. But we were pretty worried for a few days. Also the good that came of seeing the specialist is that they are going to be keeping me on as a patient!! I have been so worried about finding a new dr. but this group is a specialty group that only handles high risk mothers/babies. So since I am considered high risk because of preeclampsia, it looks like I will be in great hands.
Yesterday afternoon we found out that we are indeed having boy #4. I would be lying if I said I wasn't heart broken. I know that we will love and adore this boy but it was our final chance for a girl of our own. Sawyer and Jeff were the saddest at first Sawyer kept saying why did that lady change our baby I wanted a girl! That's when I lost it I cried, got angry and sad. (which I feel totally entitled too) But now I am excited. I have spent most of the day looking at cute things online to make for the new baby.
I have never decorated a room or gone all out and with this baby we are! I am so excited I want to make bedding and decorate the room. Plus I got rid of ALL our old baby boy clothes.....after three kids the stuff was NASTY. So it will be fun to start shopping again!! Also Jeff said I get to name this ONE!! He does get some veto power. But still we are making lists!!
