I am hungry. And we have nothing to snack on in our house. I suppose that is probably a good thing as I'm in my second trimester and I am pretty much hungry all of the time. I feel as though I'm wasting away... yet my stomach seems to grow in spite of it all! But... good news! I have some homemade wheat crackers crisping in the oven. So hopefully by the time Eloise awakens from her nap, we will have a little something to munch on! I even resisted shaking some salt on them to at least make them a *little* healthier! Ha! But, I do believe I'll probably make some honey mustard to dip them in. It's just soooo good!
Anyway... I am 19 weeks! I had an appointment yesterday and all is well. My sister, her kids and our mom came over to spend time with Eloise while I was at my appointment. You can read/see about it HERE. It was nice to get together on our turf, though I wasn't around for too much of it. They seemed to enjoy themselves and I KNOW that Eloise was in all of her glory!
So far I have gained 7 lbs. I feel small... though any time I look in the mirror or take a picture, I feel like I look too big for 19 weeks. Little Baby #2 seems to have pushed all of my guts up and I have quite a square belly, though it's still easy to hide depending on my chosen wardrobe. My ultrasound is on August 23rd. I have to admit, it is tempting to want to find out if we are having a boy or girl! BUT, we aren't going to find out! So you'll all just have to take a good guess. My guess is GIRL because I feel like I'm carrying similar to how I carried Eloise! We shall see... ooohh... around Christmas or New Years! Seems like it's so far away - but I know that time will fly! I can't believe the summer is almost over already!
