The important details:
- It's a boy!
- Due date: May 1, 2018
- Current progress: 27 weeks
This pregnancy started out much harder than my others- morning sickness was a beast and lasted much longer than I expected. I have been very tired (not helped by the fact that I actually have to get up and dressed for the school run every weekday morning, rather than sleeping in as long as the kids let me). And the timing was such that I was dealing with all the fun of the first trimester while we were in the process of trying to unpack our whole house and start the school year for Andrew. Aaron was a champ during those hard months, and I'm so grateful to have him.
I started feeling the baby move pretty early this time, before 16 weeks! And he hasn't stopped since- I'm pretty sure I've felt the movements daily since then.
I'm at a relatively comfortable phase of pregnancy now, which is good, but I'm getting pretty close to the third trimester now so I'm not counting on it lasting much longer! Hopefully a few more weeks at least!
Andrew and Brandon are super excited and already talk about the new baby as a member of our family. I'm sure they don't fully understand the changes that will happen in our lives and our home when the baby arrives, but they are looking forward to it and they already love their baby brother. They have decided that his name will be George (but really we're not even close to choosing a name).
I've been working on some baby projects, but we still have lots of gaps to fill in the wardrobe (after my great pre-move purge) and some bigger gear to buy before we'll be ready for baby to arrive. But we're looking forward to it- about 3 months to go!
