18 Weeks Pregnant

August 3, 2010

Here’s the most recent picture of my growing belly. I’m 18 weeks pregnant now. My favorite parts of this pregnancy? The cravings…the spicier, the better! And, every time I eat (even if it’s not spicy), I can feel the baby move!! That’s my favorite part. I’m anxiously waiting for the kicks and movements to be strong enough for Matt & the girls to feel it. That day can’t come soon enough.

Neither can August 19th. That’s the day I have the 20 week ultrasound. This time (unlike with both girls), we’re going to find out if we’re having a boy or girl. Alyssa wants a girl. Grace wants a boy…because (in her words)…”we already have a girl” (as she motions toward Alyssa). What she doesn’t realize is “we” already have 2 girls and think a third would be fantastic. 🙂 So would a boy.

We naturally hope for a boy because we’re the last of the Flener line and it would be fun to experience the joys of both genders. However, there is a large part of me that wants another girl. I’m familiar with girls…I know girls…I know how to change a girl’s diaper…and we already have all the toys! 🙂

Well, that day will come. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy eating my spicy foods and feeling this precious little one move.
