Today I am 18 weeks, which marks the beginning of the fifth month! It feels big.
If the baby is a girl, her uterus and fallopian tubes are formed and in place. If it is a boy, his genitals will finally be noticeable by ultrasound, even though we will not have our big ultrasound for another two weeks.
HOWEVER, there is BIG news on the gender front. Brace yourselves. Last night, Jeremy said he had decided that it was most important that *I* be happy, and if that meant finding out the gender, he was on board. I am still a bit confused. He claims he is sincere, but I think there might be a chance he is using some sort of Jedi mind trick on me and is just trying to get me to change MY mind and want to wait. Oh well, because it is only SLIGHTLY working. I feel bad, but have not a SINGLE doubt in my mind that I want, nay NEED, to know the sex of the baby and that knowing will put my mind at ease and allow me to plan the way I would like. More updates on that as they happen.
As far as me, I am doing well. I am struggling with insomnia and being unable to breathe or get into a comfortable position in bed, but I knew that was coming and know it will just get worse. It's no fun, but I know it could be worse. During the day, I generally feel great. Unless I go too long without eating. Jeremy discovered that yesterday on a short road trip we took. Not pretty. I will just have to get better about packing food.
Overall, all is well, I am really excited to be 5 months pregnant, and I can't wait for the ultrasound!!
