Baby News

Well, Baby #2 is not going to be due in November. We have a new due date: December 11th. Still, I am happy with that. The baby should still be here for Christmas. Yay! 

Like I said, my periods are wonky and I have never been one to be consistent with them. I had a period in February. I missed my March period not because I was pregnant though...just because my body decided that I was gonna miss that one. I normally have a period on the 10th through the 15th {well, normally means when I do have them} and I took a test on the 17th of March and it came out negative. Took another one and that too was negative. Missed again in April.  I started having tenderness in my breasts and felt like stuff was happening in my uterus...which is not something I had ever experienced before. So when I missed April's period I took a test and sure enough it was positive. So that means that my body just loved me and didn't want to provide me with a March period and then let me get pregnant after that period would have ended. LMAO.  Somehow I was really surprised that I was pregnant, yet I just knew that I was at the same time. After a blood test to confirm, it started to really sink in. 

It didn't really sink in though until yesterday. I had an OB appointment to measure the fetus to get a more accurate due date. The little bugger was only about 1 inch long or so, which is consistent with a March conception {9 weeks 4 days...well, 9 weeks 5 days now}...not consistent with their original projected date of November 18th {conception in February and would have been 13 weeks today}. 

Either way, I was so excited to see that little fetus. It made my heart happy. I got to share the moment with my fiancĂ©e and our 3 year old. He didn't want to go in with us, but once he was in there he was so excited to see that little fetus on the big screen. We were actually able to hear a heartbeat which was unexpected. 171. Fast! I have heard all the old wives tales...which say with a heartbeat that fast it could be a girl. But I don't really know what to think at this point. 

I don't really believe in all those old wives tales but they are certainly fun to entertain even for just a short while

I am 25, and I concevied in March {just after I turned 25 too!!}, so by this I
am having another little boy. When I had Lawson, I was 20 at the time of
conception and I conceived in September...and it was correct. I had us a
little boy.

  It's a girl!  (Chinese Age 26 at Lunar month 2)  

This one says a girl is what I am in store for. I don't know the exact day 
of conception, so I just went back 9 weeks and 4 days. And I went with 
the 13th...but my period would not have been over at that point. I redid it 
a few more times and all the March dates I put in came up with who 

What do you think?? Boy or Girl?? I would be happy with either. As long as it 
is healthy and happy. 



  1. Congratulations, Rebecca! I'm sure you're very excited right now. I'm guessing it's a girl. :)

  2. It was a girl!! <3 Alba Rose is her name.
