My existence is a life-long treasure hunt.

20 Weeks Update

Minicorn is a girl!!!

I forgot to come back here yesterday. My bad. If you connect with me on any other social network then of course you know I spilled the beans on Instagram/Twitter/Tumblr/Facebook. So don’t taze me bro!

I was also able to confirm that the down low “heart palpitations” were indeed her. She was CRUNK. Flipping, throwin’ elbows (no really we have a photo), doing this:

I am not even exaggerating either. We have to get another ultrasound at my 24-week appointment because they couldn’t get a clear view of her heart, spine, and kidneys due to her crumping in the womb. They seem to think everything is fine though. She measured EXACTLY 20 weeks 4 days which is what the gestational age was yesterday.

I LOVE the midwife I met with yesterday. There are 5, and we meet all of them because we don’t know which one will end up at our labor. This one, Theodora, was MAGICAL. I love her. She commended me for trying to stay away from different medicines like Zofran (NO slight to those who took it, I know at least 2 women who were definitely sick enough to need it, I just wanted to try to make it without it), and to not listen to anyone saying I’m too small to be 20 weeks (have definitely heard that every day) because I have “grown the perfect size baby”. DAMN RIGHT.

Pinterest. Registry. Names. Birth Plans. Breastfeeding resources. START YOUR ENGINES.

Minicorn is now a SHE.

  7. You lost me at ‘crumping in the womb.’

    Your poor daughter just has no idea what kind of shenanigans she’s about to be born into. Do you have ANY IDEA how amazing and wonderful and fabulous and CRAZY this is about to be?!?!?

    PS, I see a jewel-toned, Moroccan-princess themed nursery.

  8. I can’t even begin to express how happy I am!!!!! Now let’s revisit the little boy and the imaginary strawberry ice cream. I knew it was a girl and stayed team girl from that moment on. Yay!!! You dreamed you gave birth to a girl. Look at God!! LOL!
