so i had thought i looked pretty much the same as i have the past two pregnancies...but recently people have told me how different i look...in my face and how i am carrying. I saw my midwife, Sue, on Tuesday for my 36 week check up and she was going on and on at how different i look than i did with Bodie.
i hadnt noticed anything differently - maybe i will be so bold to say i didnt gain as much weight...and my face isnt balloony-yet...i also noticed that this time around i havent gotten the linea negra - the dark line that goes from your belly button up - i got it with both the boys - and dark! and it didnt go away for a looong time. but so far there isnt anything. Sue said that is what happened with her - when she had her girl she didnt have a line, but she did with her boy. I am curious if that has happened to any of you? i think its one of those "things" like carry high for girl or low for boy kind of silly thing...what do you think?
personally i think that if you have 2 boys and you are known for making cute girl things everyone REALLY wants you to have a girl...
i honestly have not been antsy about finding out the gender until just a week or so ago...now i am a little obsessed - maybe that is a bit of "nesting" - preparing myself for this little one...or trying to...when you have a homebirth you want your house to be spotless...only that is next to impossible when you share that house with 3 dirty boys!! i am trying not to let that get to my sanity...which is holding on by a thread these days thanks for asking!
