Boy or Girl?! We found out!!!!

It's a boy!!!! 

I'm 19 weeks, I'm finally starting to show and I felt the first flutters of this baby boy's movements 2 weeks ago! How sweet it is!

I was SO anxious to find out what we were having that a family member may have snuck me into a hospital to get an ultrasound. It's funny though, as much as I wanted to know I really just wanted to see the heartbeat. When she started the ultra sound the very first thing to pop on the screen was his weiner, and I remember thinking, 'I knew it, now find the heartbeat!' Once we saw it I relaxed and immediately texted the family that boys are officially taking over. My dad's response: "Praise God! We're gonna need a bigger boat." I had a feeling all along that it would be a boy! I'm so happy Driscoe is getting a little brother, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little scared at the thought of more WILD boys destroying my house. There is gonna be a lot of vino in my future, just sayin.

The second trimester has been so much better though, I have energy, and I think I'm less cranky. I guess some could say otherwise, but surely they aren't dumb enough to do that. Size wise I'm in that weird 'tweener' stage, as I like to call it. I'm not showing enough to wear maternity clothes, but I'm showing enough that my normal clothes are getting a lil too snug. Basically I have what looks like a beer gut. I've been doing the pony tail holder trick on my jeans to give my beer gut some breathing room, but I know eventually my legs will catch up to my gut and all my jeans will be out the window. Until then I'm rockin' those bad boys and trying not to look like stuffed sausage, it ain't easy.

I have been hitting the gym though, and by hitting the gym I mean I've gone 4x. I walk on an incline of 10-12 for a mile then do squats, lunges, curls, and shoulder exercises. With Driscoe I swam and practiced yoga the entire pregnancy, two workouts I do not have the time to do anymore, unfortunately. So this pregnancy I'm sticking to legs and arms and short walks because quite frankly I don't want to work out to begin with, so I gotta keep it short and sweet. I found this website today with some great leg workouts and did a few at the gym, my legs were BURNING. Check them out here.

Anyways, that's all I have for right now! I'll leave you with the sweetest voice singing his heart out to his best friend, oh and if anyone has some great boy names, TELL US!
