Speaking of the anatomy scan, ours is sceduled for two weeks from today! I am so excited to find out whether this sweet little baby is a boy or a girl. I don't have a preference at all, I'm just curious! We're having a much harder time picking names this time so we've kinda put it off until we know the gender. Other than names, I've been searching for the perfect baby bedding set. We're keeping Dominic in his room with all of the same decorations because his set isn't very baby-ish. With the chocolate brown and olive green, it's fitting for a boy through toddler years. So this baby will have a brand new set. Unfortunately, nothing is calling to me right now. I think we've picked a boy bedding set we like at BabiesRus:
But I'm really stuck on a set for a girl. I'm not into bugs. That means butterflies and ladybugs are out. I'm also not a huge fan of bright pink. I'm more of a purple kinda girl. There was one set I liked (also at BabiesRus) but of course it's been discontinued and is no longer on the shelves. Grrr. I'm really weary about buying online without seeing the set in person, so that's out too. Stand by. I'll keep you all posted.
As for cravings.... I haz them. This probably explains the weight gain. With Dominic all I wanted to eat was steak and a blue cheese wedge salad. This was particularly weird given the fact that I ate no red meat at the time. I had only eaten poultry and seafood for about three years before becoming pregnant with him. I did a totaly 180 and couldn't stand the thought of chicken. I started eating steak again and never looked back!! This time, my meal of choice is very specific: A #4 from Chick-fil-A (for those of you who aren't total fat asses, that's a spicy chicken deluxe sandwich). I order mine with provelone cheese instead of pepper jack and I dip the sandwich in ranch dressing as I eat it. My mouth is now watering. I alternate between ordering sweet tea (bad, I know) and lemonade. I'd just like to point out that I'm a pretty paranoid preggo when it comes to the things we aren't supposed to eat or drink. Other than the occasional treat of a sweet tea or piece of chocolate, I consume no caffiene. I allow myself the pleasure of a sweet tea now that I'm in the second trimester.
