Week 17: Baby Coates the Second is a.....







BOY oh BOY oh BOY!

We did a blood test to find out the gender of this one. We confirmed with the OB this last appointment and we could not be more excited.

Seriously, I'm still kind of in shock. I bonded with the fact I was having another girl. I was wrong.

So wrong.

It completely makes sense why I feel different this pregnancy, because i'm not carrying the same gender! Don't worry we have no idea what were naming this baby, because we had all the girl names already picked out. #alreadystruggling

As soon as I found out what we were having I panicked and bought a lot of clothes. Thanks Old Navy and your 40% off.

I've heard people say, "Oh if your daughter wants nothing to do with you, it's probably a boy". Well my child is nearly two, she wants nothing to do with me anyways. It's all about the DADA these days.

Accurate depiction:



She's already rebelling. I can't imagine what year 15 will be like.

I still continue to tell Allie everyday that she's having a sibling and she says "Bebe and No" shakes her head and walks away.

Yet another rejection for Mama.

Well I guess we can cross that bridge when we get there, something for Future Ashley to deal with.

This week I actually think I felt the baby move! It totally could have been gas but I don't think so. I've been drinking ice water like it's my job, so I know that baby is moving around in there and gets most likely annoyed by the cold.

This week I've had a couple days off in a row, which has been really nice. Who knew the human body is supposed to feel rested sometimes. This pregnancy i've been really tired. Maybe it's because i'm chasing around a crazy nearly two year old, or maybe it's because adult life is hard and exhausting.

WEEK 17 Picture!! I really feel preggo this week, so maybe I will have a real bump by week 20. 

See how I cover up my child's handprints on the mirror with Week 17. I'm still too lazy to clean it.  #notsorry


Aversions: Eggs. I tried only eating egg whites and I still can't do it.

Cravings: Sourdough toast with avocado and cholula, Salt.
This one is new: Green olives stuffed with garlic. I've eaten a jar this week. :/

This also happened. I haven't been to McDonald's in years. I pretty much stopped eating there after my early twenties. But Man, those fries were on point. I ate all of them. I also had a salad because balance is extremely important. Even if my woes of this shift were consumed in an excess of 1500 calories.

Welcome to healthcare, we are absolutely the most unhealthy people alive.



Bring on the swelling. I just pray my cholesterol isn't through the roof after this pregnancy. I'm always hungry.

Baby Boy Coates,

We love you so much. Please be good to your mama's uterus this next 5.5 months. Yikes. August will be here before we know it. I have two of the most special people that are ready to meet you, even if one of them is still in denial. *** she's on the left***

Love,
Mama




Questions:

Could you feel that you were having a different gender with each pregnancy?

Was there something you couldn't stand in one pregnancy and then craved in the other? Food wise? Eggs has been rough both pregnancies. However, I can do tomatoes this pregnancy, and last one not so much.

What weird cravings did you have?
