My belly

This isn't about food - it's about my baby! My friend Nicole gave me that cool countdown calendar and right now it represents the weeks I have left until my due date. Today I felt the baby move for the first time and it hasn't stopped kicking in about 3 hours. I've been wondering if child #2 will be less, um, active and intense than my daughter and based on this morning, I'm guessing not.

I'm supposed to find out next week if it's a boy or a girl so I can stop saying "it." My daughter was modest and sneaky and we couldn't find out for another eleven weeks or so that she was a girl so I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much that this ultrasound will reveal the sex (not the gender - look that one up).

On a food note, I've been craving spicy food, guacamole, and sour citrusy stuff. Remember those mini tabasco bottles in the prize for my giveaway? They're for my purse and frankly, not spicy enough. I also carry decaf tea bags and granola bars these days . . . if anyone snatches my purse, I hope they're hungry!


  1. I love all those chocolate squares in your foto! I'm now getting a craving for a Hershey bar!

    You've been craving spicy food, guacamole, and sour citrusy stuff? Looks like twins! :)

  2. We found out Baby #3's sex at our mid-pregnancy sono, and amazingly enough, it was obvious even to ME. The sono tech moved her little wand around on my tummy, and suddenly I saw it--the same view from underneath that I get of Kaden every time I change his diaper. I said, "Oh! It's a boy!" and she confirmed. So maybe this one will be that easy for you. Doug was highly impressed I saw it that quickly. :-)

  3. By the way, a woman at our church who has 10 kids assured me that the active ones wear you out when they're young (as both of mine so far are!), but they turn into workers when they're older. The quiet ones who are content to sit on your lap as toddlers continue to sit as teens. Something to think about!

  4. Exciting times for the Mills Family! Can't wait to hear next week (hopefully)!

  5. Tapitio for me please! I carry it when I travel. And yay! Baby!

  6. Awww.... exciting stuff! Just remember, God won't give you more than you can handle. ;) Keep me posted on the outcome of your ultrasound - can't wait to hear!! Hugs - SJR
