Getting closer.

A week from today I will know (Lord willing) what baby #2 is. I am so excited and can hardly wait to know if it's a sweet baby girl or a precious baby boy! It is going to take all that I have to not spill the beans to Chris until the following evening at dinner. I know I can do it though. I promised that I will not tell a soul. My husband will be the first one to know after me and then we will share with the rest of our family on Saturday night..which means y'all most likely won't know until Sunday. Sorry!

Here is what I'm experiencing with baby #2...

Weeks: 15

Cravings: none really but I'm still loving bread.

Food aversions: chunks of meat. Chicken and Beef. Gross.

Heartbeat: steady in the 160s

Extras: I am breaking out like a 13 year old, my tummy is stretching and growing daily, I still don't have much energy, I tend to be grumpy often, I've made one homemade dinner in 2 months (so lame), and I'm already having a hard time sleeping due to someone laying on my bladder.

All of these symptoms are the same ones I had with Kate and up until now I would have put money down that this baby was also a girl. However, that all changed last weekend. I had a dream at the beginning of this pregnancy and it was clearly a girl. This past Saturday night I asked the Lord to give me a dream and show me what we are having. Sounds silly but He did and it was clearly a boy. Because of that I am now convinced that this baby is a boy. Either that or He just wants me to be really surprised. I'm pretty sure we will be totally surprised since Chris and I have both gone back and forth with our gut instinct. He has said boy all along until recently and now says it's a girl and I have switched from girl to boy. My instinct with Kate was a boy and clearly you see how that one turned out. My motherly instincts don't have a very good track record.

So what is your guess? I want to hear!

Can't wait to know what you are, baby!
Can't wait to call you by name!



I'm going with BOY.....just a guess :-) You should try the chinese gender calendar and see what it says. I did it with E and it was right. I looked at it again for my next child if all goes well and it will certainly be interesting if it is all correct. Either way boy or girl it's a wonderful gift :-)

I'm am guessing that the little of bundle of love you are carrying is a girl.
