16 weeks (and 2 days)

I know it has been 2 weeks since my last update.  I don't like to update blogs.  I get lazy.  I don't have a lot to say.  I have had a lot of pressure from Darren to update this one.  Perhaps he should post something if he wants a post so badly.  I didn't make this blog anyway.  Blah.

I went to the doctor last week.  I thought I would get an ultrasound, but I didn't.  They checked the heartbeat with the doppler and all sounded fine.  I did get scolded for my weight gain so far, so now I have to try and watch that. :(  My next appointment is scheduled for 19 weeks, so we should find out the sex at that time.  I can tell you its a boy, and even if we find out its a girl, it will still be a boy to everyone else for a while.  That is for the benefit of my sister-in-law who is adamant we are having a girl.  We will just keep everyone guessing for a while.  I am really looking forward to getting through the next couple of weeks.  I am starting to "show" now, but its only really apparent to me.  To everyone else I just look fat.  It will be nice to be visibly pregnant so at least there is a reason for the weight gain.  I know it will mean I am a bit less comfortable, but its better than just looking fat I think.

I am currently in Washington.  I flew in last night and I am flying back home today.  Last week I was in LA, and I may have to go back to LA next week.  I really enjoy traveling, even if it is for work sometimes.  I am not looking forward to being grounded for 3 months.  That will be my longest travel drought since before Darren started with the airline.  I hope our baby is a good traveler.  There was a very fussy baby on the plane yesterday and the poor mother was getting death looks from a few passengers.  I felt bad for her because she was doing absolutely everything she could to quiet the baby.  If everything works out correctly our baby's first flight will be at about 2 weeks old.  Hopefully with regular travel at such a young age our child will be a seasoned traveler from very early on and we will never have problems.  Perhaps a love of travel is the one thing both of us can pass to our child.  That would definitely make life easier.


  1. I did a tarot reading to see if I could guess the gender...the cards were very hard to read (being that I am an amateur) but all the cards were masculine so maybe they were trying to tell me it's a boy?? That's my guess, anyway... :)

  2. I told you before, it has to be a boy so that I can have a nephew. Grow me a nephew please because this baby is clearly all about me!

  3. Ha ha! That's awesome Angela. Between your tarot cards and the Chinese calendar prediction it has to be a boy. All signs point to boy. Plus, you are right Jessi, it is of course all about you. Hopefully Darren planted that seed correctly. :)
