week by week: 16-18 weeks

well i am a day away from being 19 weeks pregnant but i took the photos so i am going to make a post! the past few weeks have flown by and i honestly can’t tell you much of what has happened. we are getting ready for halloween around our house. bastian wants to be r2d2 and i decided to make poppy a unicorn. halloween is one of my favorite holidays but it feels like i am a bit unprepared this year. i don’t think i will dress up this year which is a total bummer! well… i suppose i have a week and half left to figure something out or wear an old costume. anyways, onto¬† new baby news…

we have decided that we are going to make the gender of this baby a surprise. i know, i think it’s a little crazy myself, and it does make planning a bit more of a challenge (what do i really need to plan for this time around?) but both brian and i would be happy with either sex. i know all parents say they don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl but deep down they really do haha. BUT i do have one of each and so with this baby i see positives in having both a boy and a girl. if it’s a girl, poppy and her will be close in age and hopefully be friends and if it’s a boy, bastian would love to have a baby brother and then poppy will maybe suffer a little less of middle child syndrome because she is the family’s only girl. who knows! needless to say in the delivery room, i will be excited for both!

the hard parts, narrowing down names, planning a nursery, figuring out what hospital outfit to bring (why am i thinking about this already?) and preparing the kids for having a baby brother or sister. we have our 20 week scan in a week and a half and i am about 99.5% sure we will wait to find out the sex. how many of you out there have waited? how many of you were totally shocked?
