20 Weeks and a Poll




Halfway there... with an ultrasound on Friday, hooray! Feel free to participate in my first ever poll, on my sidebar. You can vote on what gender you think the baby is until 9:30 on Friday, the day and time of my ultrasound.

The facts about this pregnancy thus far: I haven't had nearly as much morning sickness, but I haven't been taking a regular prenatal vitamin, either. With both of my girls, I was very diligent about taking my vitamins (and was extremely sick), but with this pregnancy, when I started taking them (at about 5 weeks) and I started getting really, really sick, I stopped, and the sickness mostly went away (I was still sick in the evenings, but as long as I took my unisom and B6, and went to bed before 11:00, I was ok). So take that for what it's worth. Also, I have craved red meat, but had an aversion to chicken (thankfully that seems to have stopped with the nausea a few weeks ago). And fruit, for the first trimester, I ate an apple almost every day.

I have the usual aches and pains starting up already, but nothing I can't handle yet. I also started feeling the baby move a couple weeks ago, and Cory has been able to feel the baby move a few times over the last 2 weeks, too. I love that part.

So... so far so good. I'm excited to finally see this baby on Friday, and to see what you all think it'll be.

Oh, and don't worry, I've still been taking a folic acid supplement to make up for the missed prenatal vitamin--that is the most important part (especially since my iron levels are always somewhat freakishly high).

I'm feeling boy-can't wait! You look so cute. Glad you haven't been as sick this time around.

I guessed BOY. But only because you already have two cute girls and it might be nice to change it up a bit. ;)

I voted girl... that way Ben has more Kilger choices for a future wife ;).

I'm voting for one girl or twin boys. Because you know, one girl power equals one boy to the second power.

I'm thinking that no matter how many or what combination of genders, I win! (And I know it's not all about me except for the gramma part. uh, that I have to share with the other grammas.)

okay. two more things.

I just tried to vote for the twin boys and apparently i'm only allowed to vote once? What is this, Afghanistan?

Uh. Oh yeh, you look like a very serious student of maternity photography! Such a cute belly to go with your cute concentration face.

I voted for boy too! Same reason as Aliese. I was the same way with chicken during my pregnancy, only thing is...3 months later, it really hasn't gone away.

I'm voting boy. We're all hopeful that Caleb won't be a lone boy among six girl cousins.

Wow, very interesting about the prenatals.

So you put twins on the side bar. If you're having twins and haven't told us, you are one sneaky little devil!
