Great news for our family! Baby #2 is on the way! And well on the way! We’re due in October!
Some Q & A for those that like details:
Due Date: 10/20/2013
Significance of the Due Date: This is the cool part – I’m due on my father’s birthday. My dad passed away when I was almost 8 and I think it’d be kind of cool to have a baby born on his birthday. I certainly wouldn’t schedule a c-section to make it happen, but it’s a neat thought that this baby is due on his birthday.
Weeks Along: 18 weeks along – almost half way!
Feeling: Great! In fact, no morning sickness. Not even exhaustion like I had with Phinehas in the first trimester.
Starting to Show?: Not really. Thanks to cool weather (that just recently ended), hoodies and sweatshirts covered up any baby bump that might be there. But you know what? There isn’t really a baby bump…just more “fluffiness”. I expected to show sooner than this since it’s my second, but I guess that didn’t happen. I do expect it to happen soon as it was around this point that I started showing with Phinehas.
Baby’s Nickname: We don’t have an often used nickname, but we do refer to the baby as “Baby Moe”. As in “We’re having mo’ babies!” Dumb, eh? But we nicknamed Phinehas iCarly until we found out it was a boy.
Names: Not telling…some thing has to be a surprise for some one! I think we have a boy’s name, but aren’t really discussing names since…
Baby’s Sex: We are going to find out the baby’s sex. I thought we’d not find out with this one, but I think we’ve decided to. Our anatomy ultrasound is just in a couple of weeks, so we’ll find out soon!
Telling Jeff: I told Jeff by putting a baby’s outfit and a card in his car, to discover as he left for work one morning. See here for that post.
Will You Be A Stay-At-Home Mom: Not yet. I still plan to return to work and got the best babysitter in the world lined up – my sister. I still just work part-time (mostly mornings, except for one day/week) and thus far, we’ve found it to be a really good fit for our family. We have some financial goals that we want to meet before I stop working. So as long as I have the best babysitter in the world, that’s our plan!
Any blog posts on it? Yup. They were just all private, until now. But you can see them here. Be forewarned: they’re kind of boring…this hasn’t been an exciting pregnancy (thank the Lord!)
