He’s Not Lion…

He’s Not Lion! That much I can promise you!

Baby #2 is due in July of 2012!!!

How cute is that shirt?! As soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect for Mason. He is the king of this household and his first animal sound was a lion roaring so I knew it was beyond perfect! It’s from Etsy, the shop is Heather Roger’s Designs. She has the cutest pregnancy announcement shirts for siblings! Right now she has some adorable seasonal shirts for sale too! I want it all 😉

The title of this post was almost Jinxed! Why? Because I wrote TWO posts in the couple of months before I got pregnant about how B and I were not ready to have another. You can laugh at me about that here and here. The 2nd one is especially funny because I was pregnant and didn’t know it yet! Good times.

Okay so let’s see. I had an early dating sonogram that put me at July 20th. According to online calculators and the first day of my last period my EDD is July 23rd. According to one of my Midwives wheels my EDD is July 26th. I however think that’s a little too late for various reasons the main one being I’m pretty positive of the date “it” happened and since conception should have been too far behind that I’m going with closer to a July 20th-July 23rd range.

But for the sake of keeping on track with my Midwife Rugrat #2s EDD is July 26th 2012. Rugrat will be almost exactly 2 1/2 years younger than Mason. I think it’s the perfect age gap!

With an EDD of July 26th that puts me at 16 Weeks 2 days today!

I have SO much catching up to do for you guys! I’ve been doing a bunch of old wives tales to determine the gender AND I even did Intelligender. I will have a review and giveaway for Intelligender up ASAP. And every week I will cover a different old wives tale BUT be prepared you won’t know the answer in just four short weeks instead you will find out in July because this time around we are

What else is different this time around?

I’m ditching my OBs and going with a midwife. I’ll also be delivering at her Birth Center NOT at the hospital. More on that topic in a later post!

And now I’ll leave you with a “bump” picture. With clothes on, especially maternity clothes a bump is visible. With my clothes off I’d call it more of a blump. Or probably even fat lol. But even so, here’s a picture taken today!

24 weeks to go!

      I had SUCH a hard time not talking about it so I figured the best thing to do was stay quiet!

      And I wasn’t really posting recipes because my morning sickness was all over the place!

      I knew I had to include him in some way so when I found that shirt, I knew it’s what I had to get! He’s going to announce the sex after I have the baby too!

      lol Thanks 🙂 I can’t wait. Going to my midwifes office v my OBs office is like night and day! Best way to describe it?

      With my OB-
      60 minutes in the waiting room 5 minutes with my doctor
      With my Midwife–
      5 minutes in the waiting room, 60 minutes with my midwife
