We Know!

For most of you this is old news but for others here it goes....

We're having a boy!

We found out about a week and a half ago but for some reason it has taken me this long to blog about it. Jay and I are so happy. I was afraid I might be disappointed if we found out but it is still exciting. We have no idea what we will name him and probably won't know until he gets here....that 's how it was with Caiden. You see, Jay likes to nix ALL the names I come up with but doesn't like to contribute his ideas AT ALL. Typical Jay. It is a bit harder this time for me now that I am teaching. Some of the names I have always liked I now have students with those names. No worries though. I know it will all work out.

One thing we did find out at my doctor's appointment was that I have a sub cordial hemorrhage (SCH). It sounds pretty scary and I guess it could be. As for right now I have no restrictions and I go back in a month for another sonogram to see if it has resolved itself. I will know more then I guess.

Basically from what I have read on the Internet (bad Jenni) there are large and small hemorrhages. The large ones are typically cause for concern and the small ones usually absorb and resolve themselves. Most women actually have some kind of symptom that goes along with this condition and I haven't had any of them (bleeding, cramping, baby measuring small).

I'm cautious with my actions but trying not to drive myself crazy. This has been a very long road for our family and we have gotten by on the power of positive thinking. I truly think if my doctor was overly concerned with what she saw she would of had me come in earlier than a month AND she would have had a list of restrictions for me. That being said- it never hurts to pray for us!

I have more belly shots but I won't bore you with them today. I am still right on target with my weight and growth. I have now gained 5 lbs and my belly is measuring 24 cm (I am 22 weeks so give or take a few cm and you know you are growing on track).

Conversations with a Two Year Old.

I have had many interesting conversations with Caiden and I try to share them when I can. The car ride home today was absolutely hysterical and I couldn't wait to get home to post about it.
The drive was a little longer tonight because we had to stop for dinner so we had plenty of time to catch up with one another. Caiden definitely kept us entertained the whole time.

It all started like this....

"Caiden what did you do today?"
"I stepped on a squirrel's nuts."

What do you say to that?! I knew what he was talking about but it was just too funny.

"Caiden how are you feeling today?"
"I am sick"
"I know sweetheart. You are so tough"
"I love you Caiden!"
"Who do you love?"
"I love Libby." (unfortunately he was talking about his friend from school, not my sister. Sorry Lib!)

This is how our car ride ended....

"Mommy I got something on my butt."
"What do you mean you have something on your butt? Did you go poopy?"
"No, I no poopy."
"Then what do you have on your butt?"
"I don't know, it's just a thing."

Just for the record I still don't know the answer to that question. When we got home I checked his diaper and he was clean.

Lets Compare

I have been meaning to do this since this summer but I couldn't find the time. Thankfully tonight I found it! These are pictures taken at Deana Rose last summer and this summer. Look at how much he changed?! He speaks so clear and the conversations we have are amazing.
Now lets compare baby bumps.
The top picture is 21 weeks with Caiden and the bottom one is from this Thursday. I am 20 weeks now and I thought for sure I was bigger this time around. Maybe not! It's hard to tell by the photos but it looks pretty close. I think for next time I am going to try to find the same clothes from the first pregnancy and see if we can tell a difference. We go in next Friday for our sonogram so we will keep you posted on whether we decide to find out or not.
