Weekend reading: June 6, 2015

It's a...boy!

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably already know that yesterday was our “big” mid-pregnancy ultrasound. While the main purpose of this ultrasound is to check on the baby and make sure everything is forming correctly, we were beyond excited to get a sneak peek at the baby’s gender too. Beforehand, our youngest daughter and I both guessed boy while Sean and the rest of the girls thought for sure it was another girl. As soon as the ultrasound tech moved in for the “money shot,” it was very obvious that we are expecting our second son, Lucas Isaiah.

Really, I would have been happy either way, but we’re all really excited that Jackson will have a little brother. Of course, it also makes our bedroom situation a lot simpler, and all of the baby stuff I have left is for a boy, so that’s a relief too! We had been talking about names for the entire pregnancy and were pretty set on both our boy and girl names, and it’s been fun to adjust to calling him Lucas rather than “the baby.”

We also discovered at the ultrasound that this little guy is super active, but the reason I haven’t been feeling his movements very regularly is because I have an anterior placenta (on the front of my uterus). I’m looking forward to feeling more movements as the placenta continues to move higher, because that is by far my favorite part of pregnancy.
