Baby G is a...........

19 weeks and 5 days....

On Monday, April 6th, we had our ultrasound of Baby G to determine the gender. The appointment went very well and baby is measuring around 12 ounces which is almost one pound. We had a small gender reveal later that evening with our parents and the pictures are below. 

IT'S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joey and I are extremely excited and couldn't be any happier for the upcoming changes we are about to experience in the next months. We want a healthy baby and gender really did not matter one way or the other. I am extremely blessed to have another opportunity to carry a child and become a mother. I will always be a mother to my son Landon even though he is in heaven looking down on each of us. 

As for names or a baby shower....Those are to be determined because we aren't quite sure on baby girl names and I need to be cleared to travel. I have already started a registry at Babies R Us, which has many wonderful things under my first and last name (Christina Giamportone). I would love to have a shower before the baby comes because I really do not have anything other than a crib, clothes, and a swing. However, I might have to do it after the baby is born if my health is at risk. We will have to play it out each week and see how I am progressing. If I have it before, it would probably be Sunday, June 28, 2015. I will let everyone know one way or the other. 

I hope everyone enjoys this and I will have another post in about a week!!! 

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Second Time Second Trimester

18 weeks and 3 days.....

I can't believe I am almost to the halfway point of my second pregnancy. So many emotions run through my mind each day that I really can't put it into words but I will try. I am excited, anxious, nervous, scared, and happy all at the same time. 

For those of you who want to know the common old wives tales to predict gender for this pregnancy here they are: 

1. Heartbeat: Averaging in the 150s
2. Craving sweets and fruit
3. Morning sickness
4. Dad is not gaining weight along with me
5. I lay on my left side more than my right. 
6. I feel like I am carrying high.

You can predict all you want but we find out the gender at my next appointment which is April 6th. We are very excited and can't wait to plan for either our daughter or son. 

Since I have family coming into town on Friday, I plan to have a small gender reveal to share the news and of course there will be a video for all to see. 

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet until next time. I am just getting used to this type of journaling, and I would like to continue this every week so anyone can read this. 

Enjoy your weekend and see you for week 19.
