Pink or Blue?

I wasn't sure if I was going to blog this week because I hadn't really had any new updates and I don't go to the doctors until Monday and Tuesday. 

But, I decided to anyway! Lately the biggest thing on me and Tyler's mind is if we are going to have a boy or a girl! We can hardly stand it!! And recently, I have multiple dreams about the issue. HA! I have had two dreams that I actually had a girl and one where the ultrasound showed girl. On the other hand, I had a two dreams about the ultrasound showing boy and the most recent was actually having a boy. So, those are NO help! Fingers crossed at either one or both appointments we will be able to find out what Baby A will be! 

Lately, I have had these massive headaches and I try my hardest to wait them out without any Tylenol. If I have to go to work or coach I break down and will take two regular strength. Also, when I stand for long periods of time (like at work) my back kills me. Not really my lower back, but in the middle? Haha. I am sure that's not the medical term, but it's crazy. I am sure with all my complaining my husband thinks I am a baby, but then again he's not the one carrying around another human being... right? :) Sleeping is still my number one hobby, but it's constantly interrupted with frequent bathroom trips. My weight is still the same. I plan to ask my doctor about my lack of weight gain. Although, my weight isn't going up much my pants have become a little tighter. I CAN button them, but it's just plain uncomfortable. So, I have broke down and started wearing the maternity jeans. I do have one pair of jeans that the belly band works well with. I did try on my shorts because the weather here is so nice and they buttoned, but I will probably have to use the belly band with those too! Other than that.. I have no plans to buy anymore maternity clothes unless necessary. My wonderful husband let me buy a few dresses from the outlets and my Mom has sent me some. So, I think I am set! 

Other than that, everything is fine and I have no complaints. I have felt a few 'flutters' and I am pretty sure I can tell the difference between that and other things like being hungry! Most of the time it's at night laying in bed right before I fall asleep. 

Anyway, hopefully next time y'all hear from me... we will know if we are team pink or blue!!!!
