Bumpdate - 20 weeks - its a....





How far along? 20 weeks

Weight Gain/Loss: not sure I have my next check up on June 29th but so far 3lbs gained

Maternity clothes? nope I'm still able to fit into all my regular clothes but I'm loving my yoga pants cause they are so comfy! I've never bought maternity clothes with either of my pregnancies and don't plan to this time around either.  I do plan to go get some maxi dresses and long tank tops.

Stretch marks? no new ones! I have one semi long one that I got when prego with Kaylee
Sleep: sleep has been ok this week.  It seems like when I wake up to go to the bathroom and I come back to bed, I cant seem to fall back to sleep right away.  It take me about 30-45 minutes to get comfortable and fall back to sleep.  Its been nice that this week the girls have been waking up at 8am so I've been able to sleep in, so thank you girls!
Best moment this week: finding out that were having a GIRL and that Jason was able to feel the baby kick.

Miss Anything?  my ENERGY.  I feel like I have none.  I get up once in the middle of the night go go potty.  But I still feel tired and by 12 I am ready to take a nap!
Movement: they are becoming more frequent and I can feel them more from the outside, its pretty awesome.  The baby did a really BIG kick while getting the ultrasound done.  I was telling the tech that I couldn't really feel the kicks to strongly yet on the outside and then like 20 seconds later, the baby did a huge kick that scared both the tech & I.  So in that moment I ate my words on not being able to feel big kicks!  LOL

Food cravings: chocolate milk still, cheese, popsicles and salad

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really.

Gender: IT'S A......GIRL!
Labor Signs: None.

Symptoms: tired, sore boobs & hip pain

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On
Mood: Happy
Looking forward to: having a little more energy, picking out baby names, going to do a little shopping at Target today and going on our family beach vacation on Monday!


I had my BIG ultrasound yesterday June 14th at 10am.  So I dropped the girls off with grandma and headed to my appt.  For whatever reason I was really nervous, I think it was the anticipation of finding out what we were having.  I prayed the night before that we were having a little boy. (again I will be happy if it's a girl).  I made the 15 minute drive to the ultrasound place, filled out some paper work and waited to be called back.  I got called back after waiting about 5 minutes.  The rooms are always so warm and inviting while getting an ultrasound.  I layed on the bed and lifted my shirt, she asked me if I could take out my belly ring and I did.  (I have since decided to let my belly piercing close up.  The skin where the ring is, is so thin that I'm so afraid its going to rip out.  I get so freaked out when the girls get near my belly cause I'm afraid of them touching it or snagging it the wrong way.) Ok sorry back to the ultrasound, she squirted the warm gel on my belly and I got to see my little one for the first time.  The tech took all her measurements and the baby was all over the place, she had a hard time getting some of her measurements.  The baby's heartbeat was 150.  Its always so cool to see them on the ultrasound for the first time.  Although the baby was being a stinker and didn't want to show the goods right away, she assured me that we would look for the gender at the end..  I was so nervous and I'm not even sure why.  After getting all her measurements she called in another tech to see if she could get the baby to show the goods and within 5 seconds the baby spread the legs and guess what....ITS A GIRL popped up on the screen.  In that moment my heart sank and tears filled my eyes a little bit, I put on a fake smile, while the tech was all excited.  Looking back now I feel bad for acting that way but those are my emotions and I'm entitled to feel however I want.  I was disappointed as this is our last baby. But after I left and talked with my mom and Jason's mom I realized that having another girl isn't the end of the world and I shouldn't be disappointed for this blessing.  I am really happy that we will be adding another little girl to our family.  Now it's time to start thinking about names, which could take awhile cause Jason is soooo picky about names!  We will be sticking with a K name, so if you ladies have any suggestions they would be greatly appriciated.

  1. What a beautiful post! I can understand your feelings and frustration completely but just think how many best friends you are going to have when all your ladies are in their 20's and can't get enough of you! :) Glad your feeling well!

    1. Thank you. I know I will have 3 best friends and they will all be best friends themselves. I'm excited to start thinking of names and going shopping.

  2. Girls are so much fun as you know. But I understand. If we have a second baby I really want a boy. So it's completely understandable. But if your sticking with K names I think Kendall is reall cute & Khloe.

  3. I can understand how it would be hard news to swallow at first. I was convinced that Brayden was a girl so when I heard it was a boy it totally took me by surprise. I know it's the not the same situation, but it's ok to have the feeling you had. It's ok to be honest. I have a friend who is one of 4 girls. They are the best of friends and love their Mom. So as the above commenter said, I'm sure it will be so fun when they are older and all best friends. I'm not the best of thinking of names, but what about Kendra? Kendall?

  4. You are not a bad mom for being just a little dissapointed it does not make you any less of a mom and your feelings are totally natural. You will love this baby as much as your first two and she will be lucky to have you for not only a mom but a best friend

    Newbie to your blog

    1. Thank you, I didn't want people who read my blog to think I was ungreatful to be pregnant or anything like that. I love this baby already and I loved it before I even knew what it was. I know my 3 girls will be the best of friends

  5. You are tiny- I look like that after a ful meal! lol! Congrats on the girl, I understand the dissapointment- it's funny though I am praying for another girl next time around. I think it will be easier because I already know how to handle a girl, I know how to clean and care for a girl, I have girl clothes and won't have to buy anything else, I love the idea of sister relationships since I never had one, and I think it's easier to have girls as adults (not teens)- men seem to go with their wives on family occassions, daughter in laws are hard to deal with, and I've experienced that mothers are closer to their girls babies than to their DIL's babies :)

  6. No way - don't feel bad at all! You just weren't reacting to the child, just the gender! Now you'll just have more Sweet 'n Sassy - otherwise, you'd have had to change your blog name to incorporate boys...LOL!! Do not feel bad. You'll be so happy when she joins the two beauties you have!

    My friend has three girls that all start with K - they are Kaylie, Kenzie, & Kelsie - she just spelled Kaylie different than you do.

  7. OOoOoo Kelsie is SUPPPER cute! I didn't even think of that one! I also think Khloe and Kenzie are cute:) I could totally see a Kaylee Keira and Kelsie though! I listed all the cute K names that I could think of in a previous post that I thought fit with Kaylee and Keira...can't wait to hear what some of your thoughts are! So excited for you! I personally would like another girl for #3 so maybe since I followed with another girl when you found out Keira was a girl I will with #3 hehe. I would be totally happy and blessed and excited for a boy but if God said you HAVE to choose I would go with girl so I know how you feel about having a preference but being happy either way! Each baby is a blessing no matter what the sex! Everyone assumes that we would try for #3 for a boy BUT I always say, if Im trying for #3 its because I want another BABY not because I want a boy hehe:) Just think, now you can keep your sweet and sassy girls name just fine:P I cant wait to see what she looks like!

    1. Thanks Belle. I have names written down, now that hard parts begins with talking to Jason about the names and seeing if he likes any of them. Yeah we weren't trying to have another baby to have a boy, this baby was surprise and I know its ok to hope for one sex after having 2 girls. But I am happy that all 3 of my girls will be best friends. I know I can keep my blog title and not have to think of another one. LOL I cant wait to see what she looks like too, like I said with my other two I don't care what they look like as long as they have blue eyes...LOL

  8. You look so TALL! And it's OK to feel that way, you shouldn't feel bad about it. And you can't really control how you feel. I like Kristine and what another poster said, Kendall.

  15. I love the name Kari.

  16. I love your honestly about the gender in this post. I want a GIRL sooo bad, and sometimes am worried about the disapointment I may feel if i find it's a baby boy! I agree it's a blessing either way, but it's hard to imagine experience life without the other gender.
    On another note, I'm one of 4 girls. I can tell you that it's the most amazing thing in the world to have 3 sisters. We're all close in age and had so much fun sharing clothes and even going through some of the same boyfriends ;) Your girls are so beautiful and your third will be no different.

    I love the names Karlee, Kate, Kyla, Kyra, Kami and Kenzie:)
