Halfway point

So, 20 weeks... 

and

It's a

BOY!

I'm excited about D having a brother to play with.  I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed about not being able to use all those adorable baby girl clothes again.  I also think about the close relationship that a lot of mothers and daughters have, and only hope that I can still have that same type of close relationship with my boys.

All that being said, I think E will do MUCH better as an only girl.  She's quite the prima donna, and I don't know if she'd adjust well to sharing the spotlight with another girl.  I also hear that those teenage years are a lot rougher with girls than boys.  (I should know that since I was no picnic as a teenager!!)  All in all, I think it's going to be a very good thing. 

I've been feeling lots of movement from gumdrop for the past two weeks, though it's still not constant.  My placenta is anterior (and still "low lying") so supposedly it's a little harder to feel movement as early as with a placenta that is posterior.

As hard for me as it is to believe, we're having a birthday party this weekend for D's 5th, and E's 2nd birthdays.  Their birthdays aren't until next week, but this weekend was the only one that worked for the party.  They just keep growing and growing...

Congrats on another boy! We can talk as I have boy, girl, boy too as you know. Of course as long as they are healthy is all that matters, but it is nice that since my daughter is the middle child she is the only girl and also nice she has a older and younger brother to watch out for her as everyone says :) My son is also excited to have a brother to play hockey with!

Yay!!! Congrats on the halfway point Mama!!! I go a week from today to find out what we're having! I really want a boy, but think it will be another girl. But that's ok, at least I know what to do with a girl now! So very happy for you. I think our new babies will almost be as far apart in age as Addy & E! Give her a big 'ol birthday hug from us!

Ok I totally meant to comment that I also have a low lying anterior placenta & have yet to really feel the baby move. Had it with Addy & didn't feel her til 22 wks! Stupid placenta!!!
