 We know the sex of our baby. We can now narrow down the names to just one gender. Tye and I have have definitely been doing the name game, but we haven’t definitely picked one out. We’re down to two possible names, so now it’s time to make a decision.

 Pregnant cravings are the one thing that I really want to experience and I’m not. My doctor says sometimes people don’t get to experience it. I have no cravings, no aversions, smells don’t bother me, no morning sickness, none of that. I’ve really gotten lucky. Not even heartburn.

 All I’ve got is the belly. I like it. I was nervous about what my body was going to do, but I try to eat healthy and maintain somewhat of a workout schedule so that the weight I put on is a healthy weight. So far, it seems to be working for me.

 We got our first report, got all excited and then we went back a few weeks later and it was a conflicting report. We’re not sure, hopefully in the next week or two we’ll get 100 percent confirmation. It’s still crazy for me to be entering this world of ‘Mommywood’. It’s exciting and it’s surreal and it’s a fun new world to be in.
