De nile is not just a river ...

The alien within seems to be growing well and prospering, but I still kind of feel in limbo wondering if I am really pregnant – its not like the heartburn and insomnia don’t clue me in. At 15 weeks I’m finally starting to have to admit to people that I do in fact have a baby bump versus just having a lot of gas – but I still can’t believe that I should be showing this early.

Well the bets are slowly coming in whether this kid is a boy or girl. I have 7 different online Chinese calendars (based on my age and month of conception) telling me that I’m having a boy. However, the heart rate is still in the low to mid- 150s – so our friends’ Patty and Jerry think it is a girl. Most of my other friends think it is a boy but my favorite so far is from one of the nurses I work with – Judy. She tells me I look beautiful and my skin is really nice. She says if I was having a boy I’d be ugly, my nose would spread and I’d have spots all over my face. Based on the other comments at work, I have no doubt if it was the other way around, they would be telling me I was fat and ugly and good for me because I was having a boy. Gotta love ‘em.

My next big adventure is the beginnings of baby shopping – well baby browsing. Don’t worry I’m not ready to buy ANYTHING, but my friend said she would take me out around Shanghai and show me what she wished she would have bought. Should be interesting since the last time I set foot in anything resembling a BabysRUS I had a panic attack – and I wasn’t even pregnant yet.

Will on the other hand has been the little researcher behind my back. I happened to mention the possibility of getting small bassinet for the time being and he said he had been reading up on bassinet versus crib... I had no idea there was such a debate. Hmmm… can we guess who is going to be more prepared? He has already leafed through 3 baby books and has zoned in on his favorite. Bless his enthusiasm.

Cravings for these last couple of weeks: turkey/bacon club sandwich, anything with spicy dijon mustard and veggi sushi roles with LOTS of wasabi (or should I say lots of wasabi with veggi sushi role).

Can't wait to see Will wrapped around her finger.

Trace, can you take the competition for his attention?


Morning sickness should be ending soon...

I don't want to talk about that I only have 35 weeks left of being the spoiled one in the family. :)

Scratch that and make that 25 weeks - not sure which gestational calendar I was looking at before ... heaven help everyone if women had 50 weeks of gestation gestation! ha

Amen sister! I would never get preggers if it had to be for 50 weeks!
