Baby is the size of the lemon
about 3.5 inches!
I can actually already feel flutters and small movements- especially at night as I fall asleep. I fear and am excited that this baby is already more energetic and ninja-ish than capri. Capri was quite dormant and chill in the womb and her first year of life to be honest!
I am feeling even better/ less sick now that I'm in the second trimester! I can go hours without my zofran, not a full day but hours is something! This pregnancy makes me want to have those 6 kids chase and i used to talk about! This pregnancy has redeemed my hope in handling oodles of pregnancies! We'll take one child at a time and see how life goes :) We are thrilled to be carrying this lil lemon!
I'm not showing but I can feel the snug. I may need to get my maternity clothes back from my friend who is borrowing them sometime in May :)
Favorite moment this week was just talking and laughing with my sister on the phone. She's one of my best friends. I am scared to have girls, girls, girls bc the growing up dynamic of sisters wasn't always as lovely as it is now!
But now that I have this amazing best friend sister mother wife in my life- I do want that sister dynamic for my kids! Even if the teenage years are rough ;)
I am most looking forward to Chase and my weekend getaway this weekend!
Also, the gender reveal next week and the payson temple openhouse with the fam!
So..... one week from tomorrow is our gender ultra sound! I want to narrow the name down quick so my beloved mother and peeps can embroider and monogram things for the little babe! Chase and I are set on the girl name but those boy names toy with us! So feel free to comment or text your vote (what is this, dwts? that's what I'm watching on tv right now so it felt natural to type.)
(if there is miraculously another girl twin, probably Zoe)
these last two aren't really real......
Rocko (this one isn't real to me but Chase insists I keep it in mind- so i put it on our blog list, big guy)
Schroeder (Chase will veto this forever.... but I want it so bad! I even dropped the "t" in my maiden name to make the kid's life easier. He said I could have it if we name our second son Max Thrust Anderson...... um that doesn't set him up for great career choices. But who will really ever know his middle name? I don't mind Max. The middle name is just horrible. I can't decide if I want to take the risk and pray we only have one boy..... oh the dilemma. I don't want my husband to hate my son's name though so it's just fun to tease chase with Schroeder.)
Anyways! Hope you don't hate 'em, but either way they'll grow into their name and be the cutest baby!
