Yesterday I began my 20th week and my husband and daughter were with me for the scheduled ultrasound. The baby was sleeping and not moving very much making it hard for the technician, but after several tries jiggling my belly she finally got a clear enough shot to see the gender.
We are the proud parents of a son!
My husband and I had a strong feeling that it was a boy. I kept seeing darling little girl clothes in stores but whenever I approached the racks something in my heart kept saying, “Hold off. It’s not a girl.”
I have also held off sewing anything for the baby. But this morning I was scoping out all of the offerings on the Big 4 pattern websites. It looks like Butterick and Simplicity have the best options and I will now have to wait for another one of those big pattern sales.
My 24-hour nausea has abated somewhat to only 12-hour nausea leaving me a little window for getting my life in order and sewing for the little pumpkin. And sewing for me as well, as my belly will probably be the size of a large pumpkin before this is all over.
