Oh, how I feel like a lump

So, I've heard 3rd babies are hard on your body - boy is that an understatement. No one told me I wouldn't be able to button my pants when I woke up today. Ouch.

On the positive side, I no longer feel the need to sleep 24/7 - more like 23/7, but hey, it's a start! So, pretty much I'm fat, I'm lazy, but I have started cooking again. (I don't think pizza is all that much of a treat around here now.)  David made his first real pregnant food run: iced honeybun. Yummy. Worth 500 calories?  Probably not.

I had my first real appointment the other day, and the baby has a heart rate of 160. By old wives' tales, that would be a girl. Again. Honestly, I don't care whether it is a boy or a girl, I was just thrilled to hear a heart beat. Although, if I end up with a boy, will someone please remind me not to put a bow in his hair?

I love reading your take on this pregnancy! Good luck.

I was like that with Owen - I couldn't button my pants and looked like I swallowed a basketball. So maybe it is a boy.

This one is being much nicer.

I totally ignore the heartbeat theory now. Owen's ran 160 consistently. Ella's was near 170 and this one is consistently in 150's.

Not too worried about you putting bows in his hair, more like the girls doing that and dressing him up in tutu's. (If it is a boy!) I am hoping so but we will take what we can get. Just remember how yall treated your baby brother.
Love Mom

If it's a boy - Timothy will have a lot of advice for him.
