My sweet little Colton starts Pre-K tomorrow and he'll be in school full days, 4 days per week! Mark and I go back and forth with wondering if this is a good or a bad thing. It seems like such a long time for him to be in school, especially since last year (his first year of preschool) he did only 2 half day afternoons. But he's such a smart little thing and loves to socialize. The other part of me thinks he will really thrive in that environment. He's excited to start tomorrow!
Finally, I'll do a little survey to keep track of my pregnancy symptoms here.
We found out last week that we are having a BOY! We had a little barbecue to reveal the news. Nearly everyone thought we were having a girl, myself included! So now we are switching gears and preparing for life with another baby boy in our family.
How far along? 19 weeks and 4 days
Baby's size? at our ultrasound last week the sonographer said he was 9 oz! The size of a sweet potato or mango.
Weight Gain? Around 11-12 pounds now.
Maternity clothes? Yes. Still have a few things to get down from the attic.
Stretch marks? Still all the same ones from pregnancy #1
Belly button in or out? Out. Colton's had a fun time poking at it, haha.
Sleep? Not great but it depends on the night. Some nights I feel comfortable and others I wake up with pain in my hips.
Foods I am loving? not craving much. Junk food, but that's always me.
Foods I am hating? nothing much here either. I am just kind of blah about food. Everything gives me indigestion.
Best moment this week? The weekend! Spending time with my family.
Movement? Yes, I feel something daily now!
Symptoms? My worst symptom is the indigestion/acid reflux/nausea. Everything makes me burp so bad, even water. Everything I eat gives me a stomach ache.
Gender? another little boy :)
What I miss? Normal digestion.
What I'm looking forward to? Starting to clean out the attic and get our baby stuff organized.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't stay up too late!
Milestone: On Wednesday, we'll be half way complete! (Probably over half, I have a feeling this little one will be a week early or so).
Emotions: Getting used to the idea that our little one is a boy. I'm already grappling a little with my whole debate about working vs. stay at home mom guilt. Trying not to worry about that so soon though.
