Whatcha' Wanna Know Wednesday: a name?

Q: Do you have a name picked out for your baby?
When is your due date?

A: Yes!
I have a name.
The Hunk has a name.
But, it is not the same name!
In other words,
we'll all just have to wait & see how this works out.
For now, I call her Gem.

The third trimester!
I made it!
I'm so huge already.
This is where time really flies.
Lots to do yet.
And still a bigger belly to grow?

My toes have disappeared.
I'm up 25 pounds.
Belly button threatens to become an outie.
Bending is awkward & contraction-causing
and so I rely on my TV infomercial gopher grabber (from Walgreens).
The gem in my stomach can
do amazing things.
Like jump. Jab. Jive. At all times of the day & night.

I got to have another ultrasound last week.
Just for giggles.
In 3-D even!
The tech & the doctor both asked if I'd
been tested for gestational diabetes.
I hadn't.
They said that my baby was fat.
3.3 lbs is fat?!!
Baby is just measuring big and ahead of schedule.
But the due date will remain the same:
the first part of May.
I got tested & am just dandy.
Good thing that test was before Valentine's Day, eh?

I am super duper eager to meet our baby girl.
Another girl!
It's so perfect.
Three girls & a Bugg.
I love it.


  1. We need more May birthdays!

  2. You look beautiful!!! Beautiful!

  3. You look gorgeous! Love these updates!

  4. I am so so happy for you and your family...we have 4 girls and 1 boy...we sound a lot like your family.

  5. So excited for the new little leaf of pink on your family tree! Congrats!


Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
