To add a little fuel to the prediction we're sharing though... I should mention that my "pregnancy intuition" has been pretty bang on so far. For instance, I KNEW I was pregnant (keep in mind we were NOT trying to get pregnant). I woke up the last week of our honeymoon and just felt weird. I couldn’t really explain it, but I announced to Peter I thought I was pregnant. With a laugh he dismissed the idea and we likely went back to sipping cocktails in the sun, but the point is, I KNEW. Of course... We didn’t confirm it until later when we arrived home, but my intuition was RIGHT! I miss our honeymoon.
Speaking of a healthy baby...health is something that is on my mind a lot these days. I try to eat the "super foods" I am supposed to, I am exercising regularly, I take pre-natal vitamins every day, I don't eat the foods I am not supposed to (with the exception of nachos, but they are a whole food group to me)... Pretty much everything that I eat or do makes me think of this little one growing inside of me. So much so, I have even started drinking MILK. BY THE GLASS!!! And just today I lowered the volume and changed my music selection on my IPOD at the gym to something calmer because it occurred to me I might be disturbing the baby. I also got a shipment of the CUTEST maternity clothes ever today! I ordered them online because I find shopping for them too frustrating and way too expensive. I can’t wait to show them off. So all to say... I am taking good care of this baby. Beverages – check. Music – check. Cute clothing – check. Clearly, I am going to be a great mom. :)
To whomever is sharing my body with me... a little boy or a little girl, I already love you.
PS - my "move my butt" challenge this week is going well!
