welcome to week 16
This week, I have been mostly experiencing the following:
-heartburn from Hell (although this is likely due to eating like a pig over the festive season)
-belly expansion (see above)
-cravings for pizza and salad
-aversions to broccoli, asparagus, and as I discovered this morning, bananas
I decided over the weekend that I'm having another boy. I know that everyone else thinks it's a girl, but for some reason I'm now certain that it's a boy. I think we've decided on a boy name, although we're still stuck on the middle name. Middle names are like soooooo last year, anyway.
And the most exciting news of all is that I've just started to feel the first little baby flutters - it's incredibly reassuring. Oddly, they aren't like the movements I felt with Jack in the early days (his were more like vibrations or small muscle spasms), these feel like bona fide squirms and wriggles. Beanie is probably ricocheting around in there from all the chocolate I consumed last week.
Thank you, that is all.
