That’s right! I’m happy to announce another little bambino will be gracing the Robbins’ clan in late July! We are beyond thrilled and are so excited for the peanut! As you can imagine, we would be thrilled with either a girl or a boy, but both Seth and Emma are requesting a sister (although I don’t think Emma really knows what she’s asking for). When asked if he wants a brother or sister, Seth says “A sister cause I’m the brother.” Pretty good logic! But then other times, he seems hesitant to say sister, and instead says “I want Emma!” We’ve had to reassure him a number of times that we are not replacing Emma with another sister, but that we get to keep her AND add another one. Oh the fun we will have with 2 toddlers and a baby! We will find out that fun news this time around (we did the surprise with Emma), which will be sometime in early March, which cannot come soon enough!
I’m going to try to chronicle this pregnancy a little better than I have with the other two. So, as I progress, I will be journaling what’s going on – if you’re not interested, just skip these posts! I’m doing this more for my own benefit so I don’t forget! (And I have a HORRIFIC memory). Sorry if this is TMI for some of you
How far along? 13 weeks. Hello 2nd trimester!!
Size of the baby:
A Peach or a medium size shrimp
3 in long.
Total weight gain/loss: 0 lbs!
Maternity clothes? Not yet! Although the bella band will soon become my friend. I can feel it.
Stretch marks?Just the leftovers from the first 2 pregnancies. Thanks, kids.
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat at the doctor today! 160 bpm and going strong!
Miss Anything? Not yet.
Movement: Don’t think so. Thought I felt him/her a couple times, but I think it was my imagination. Either way, I’m happy to have those ‘moments’ to think about my baby moving.
Food cravings: Fruit and veggies, cereal. Earlier in the pregnancy I really wanted anything potato (chips, fries, baked, soup, etc). Sweets have not been my friend these last few weeks, which is weird because I don’t just have a sweet tooth, I have a mouthful of sweet teeth.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope. Feeling surprisingly good right now! So thankful.
Have you started to show yet: I think so, although some people say I’m not. I definitely can’t suck in the pooch! I guess that’s what happens with the third pregnancy!
Anxiously awaiting. My instinct says girl, the pencil test says girl, and my pregnancy is similar to Emma’s. This means it’s a boy.
Labor Signs: Thank goodness no.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time:
Although my husband may disagree.
Looking forward to: Finding out the sex!! Oh, and definitely feeling all the kicks and wiggles of the peanut. Best feeling ever!
