Finally told the world

After my end of August appointment with the doctor I told the rest of my friends and posted my pregnancy news on Facebook. It was nice to finally have it out in the open and hear all of the well wishes. I was so tired of hiding it from everyone. Plus, my stomach is getting bigger and it’s getting harder to hide it.

I’m also happy that my nasty bout with morning sickness is FINALLY over! YAY! It’s so nice to feel like I am getting back to normal and can eat whatever I want. It’s about freaking time! I was truly miserable for those 5 weeks that I was really sick. Of course, I also recently found out I had a UTI and had to take antibiotics for it but since I had no symptoms it’s not so bad. I’ll take a UTI over constant barfing and nausea anyday. Seriously!!

In two weeks I have my amnio appointment where I’ll find out if there are any genetic diseases and I’ll also find out the gender. I am really excited about that! The other day we also bought this new at-home test from Intelligender. I want to see what it says and then see if the results match the amnio. I will take it on Thursday morning, which is 48 hours after my last antibiotic.

Whenever people ask me if I want a boy or a girl, I am not one of those people who say “I don’t care as long as it’s healthy.” Blah. I know some people really don’t care but I really do and I want a girl! Of course if it’s a boy I will be fine with that too but yes, I do have a preference and I don’t apologize for that! 🙂
