Halfway there..

One great big belly #17weeks

In exactly 24 hours I will be sitting in a waiting room filled with other women with lovely pregnant bellies, reading magazines that are years old and patiently waiting our turn. I will be holding Tom's hand, I'll be nervous and I'll be taking deep breaths to try and stop my heart from beating so fast. I'll be excited and scared shitless at the same time.

Tomorrow I have my 19 week ultrasound and there are two things that I can not wait to find out..
Is my cervix still long and closed? (Like it should be.. let's bloody hope so!) and will Sophie have a baby brother or sister?

I love the idea of waiting but I just can't do it.. I am dying to find out. If it is a boy it will be the first boy born in this family in 35 years. (Tom has 5 younger sisters, one of his sisters had a little girl and we have had two girls.. Tom and his dad are really outnumbered!)

So what do you think? Boy or girl?


*This is a photo of my belly a few weeks ago. Don't you think that my belly looks lopsided? I swear there was a little foot or a bum or a head poking out the side there..

Oh how exciting! Wishing you the best of luck for tomorrow- I think maybe a girl? Ooh or maybe a boy! What do you think? xx

Laura said...

You are in my thoughts and prayers! Best of luck tomorrow! I'm thinking it's another lovely little girl, but after all, it is a surprise. Take care. xx

Sar - I agree! We have no preference whatsoever.. all we want is a healthy full-term baby!

Jess - I have no idea! I was sure that my last two were boys and both were girls so I obviously have no intuition at all! My mum is convinced it's a boy but I really don't know. We will be so excited either way..

Oh that's just fantastic - I hope everything is as it should be. You are in my thoughts. <3

Congrats on making the halfway mark. I am really excited for you, Sophie and Tom. I think you should find out so you can start knitting and crocheting in blue or pink!

As a complete stranger it feels kind of bizarre to be so happy for you! I don't think there are many babies out there that are more loved than the baby in your tummy (apart from my little man ;) ). Just for fun, I guess GIRL! Good luck, I'm sure all will be good xx
