Nope. I think it's a boy again.

I know the old 'wives tales' say I'm having a girl. I think it's a little boy. Or should I say BIG boy. I'm almost 4 months pregnant and I feel like I POPPED out last week. I'm no longer in the 'is she getting fat or prego' stage. It's full blown into the season of 'when are you due' days. UGH. I'm in for a  LONG winter. Good thing it's finally starting to get cold so I can hide/stuff myself into hoodies. I refuse to buy ugly maternity clothes and I'm too cheap to buy 'nice' ones. So I just squeeze into whatever will cover me in the closet. Luckily the rubber band trick still works on my jeans for now. Why can't I just be like my sister and wear size 1 jeans until I deliver and wear them home from the hospital? Seriously is that TOO much to ask for? Oh that's right I ate 4 sugar cookies today and who knows what else...

In good news I can feel the baby move already. It is such a comforting feeling. Almost like I didn't believe I was prego, even seeing the untrasound.. twice.. I was still a little in denial. BUT when you feel something alive in you. There is no denying the truth. I love it. It is my only reward to the uncomfortable, can't sleep, can't get comfortable, getting huge, being overly emotional ride we call being pregnant.

It's Halloween tomorrow. Holy crap where did this month go? I hope I can enjoy some of November!

I'm right there with you about maternity clothes. I've only bought one pair of maternity jeans and a belly band and that's it. I can wear a lot of my regular clothes still (I used the rubber band trick for a long time too).

That's so exciting to feel the baby move already! I don't think I'll ever get sick of it... even when I get kicked in the ribs. At least I know my baby is still alive. ; )

Good luck with your pregnancy!
