I spent the last half of last week in Utah with my sisters & my mom. We went to attend BYU Women's Conference. It was super fun & super uplifting & super tiring on my pregnant body. Today I have to begin a new week feeling behind & sluggish.
So I started the day off with some chocolate. Why not?
The chocolate that I bought as a gift for Dylan. A thank you for watching the kids & keeping the house running while I was away. I can't be trusted with food & treats around. He knows that.
It's good to be back home with my crew. We have an exciting week ahead of us. Soon we'll know the gender of our new baby! Any guesses?
I have no idea if there is a little girl or a little boy inside me. People keep asking me if I know. But I don't have an ultrasound machine, so I don't know. I know that some women claim to just know the gender of the baby they are carrying. Personally, I think it's purely a guess & they have a 50% chance of it being correct.
I haven't received any divine visions or dreams the reveal the gender of my new baby. I daydream about it being a boy & I daydream about it being a girl. I will be so thrilled with either. A boy would be cool. And I looooove girls. I would not be sad to have a family of all daughters. I'm just anxious to see that the baby is healthy & doing well.
For the record, Dylan has no preference on the gender either. Neither does Sadie. Claire wants a sister. As she says, "Not a brudder!" She did have a couple weeks where she said a boy would be okay. But now she's back to only wanting a girl. :)
For the record as well, I see how fat my face is in the above photo & now I am totally appreciating my pre pregnancy body which I didn't at all appreciate at the time. Women are so totally annoying when it comes to body issues.
