I turned 23 weeks yesterday! I still feel super nauseous often, haven't been able to sleep without sleeping pills, keep getting sick, cry a lot, and have major heartburn/indigestion problems. But I treasure each and every day I get to spend with this baby inside of me. When I think about how fast these big belly days go by, all the discomfort and body aches seem minimal. Baby's doing well and pretty active - moves around a lot, especially at night :) From our 20-week ultrasound, everything looks perfect and healthy, too.
We didn't announce it publicly on social media, but we found out we are having a girl! The kids were so cute and giggly when we told them the news. Nathan's told me a couple times that he can't wait to have another mei mei (little sister) to hide under the dining table with. It's a thing between him and Izzy right now, as Zoey has zero interest in it haha. Even though Gary and I really hoped to give Nathan a little brother, and to know that it will never ever happen for our family took some time to process, we are extremely grateful for a healthy baby and so happy that Izzy's getting a baby sister. The bonds between sisters are so so special, and I'm excited that our 3 girls will get to experience that with one another.
17 more weeks to go!!! :) :)
