Not easy...

I'm gaining weight like a pro. I know it's a good thing and I'm supposed to be gaining now, but that doesn't make it any easier. After consistently losing weight for the past 2 years, putting it back on- so quickly- is still hard. I go back to the doctor October 19th and we'll see what she says. Previously, I was told not to worry about it.
Everyone wants to know what the nursery will look like and what colors I'm doing everything. But I think I'm going to wait until I'm at least 5 months before I do anything to the nursery. I don't mean to be negative, but I think it'd be crazy to fix everything up before then. I know everything has been perfect so far, but I'd rather be rational about this one little thing. I'm not very rational about much else!
People ask what we "want" and we honestly would be happy either way. I think deep down all girls want girls and all boys want boys. When we talk about "the kid", Matt always says 'he' and I always say 'she'. We joke about it a lot. Everyone who knows my family says we should have a boy since our family has mostly girls now. But all the babies at church- our class has produced about 12 babies in the last 12 months- have been boys, except for 2. Those boys are gonna need little girls to marry one day!
Well, I'm at work so I better get back to it.

  1. Christi-
    I found your blog the other day. It will be fun to keep up with you during the pregnancy.

    When I was pregnant with Will, I would always say 'he' and Clay would say 'she'. I just knew we were having a boy. And I completely understand you wanting to wait to start preparing. It was a constant struggle for me to understand that God could actually be blessing me with the one thing I wanted most it life.

    It is an exciting time and I hope you are enjoying it. And don't worry about your weight, your doctor will let you know how you are doing. Please don't listen to random people. When you get pregnant it seems like it is an open door for people to say whatever they want.

    Can't wait to hear more as your pregnancy progresses.
