Today I have been pregnant for 121 days. According to my what to expect iphone app my baby is the size of a sweet potato.
I really can't wait to find out if it is a boy or a girl. Everyone keeps asking me and I hope to know in the next few weeks. Mike and I have been discussing names for both so when we find out we will have a name picked out already.
So far I have been feeling pretty good, just the normal pregnancy stuff like being tired all the time. My appetite is still kind of low but I'm sure that will get better soon. I was feeling lucky because I went a few weeks without having to get up in the middle of the night but that ship has long sailed and I have to get up every night now. Next week I will try to post a picture of me now that I am showing.
Tonight I was watching The Secret Life of The American Teenager. It's not a usual show I watch but since there was nothing else on I got caught up on the last couple episodes. On the show one of the girls was pregnant and at 35ish weeks she lost the baby. Mike had just happened to walk in the room when they were explaining what had happened and I just couldn't help but cry. I know it is hard to see other people loose babies but I also think my hormones played a large roll in that one. Being pregnant this time around is definitely harder than last time. I feel like I am constantly waiting for something to go wrong. It isn't physically harder just emotionally. As I wait for my best friend to call to say she is at the hospital in labor I can't help but wonder if I will get to that point this time. It is such an exciting time with her I just try to look forward to getting to have that too.
