Twenty two weeks down and only sixteen more to go at most! This pregnancy is really flying by fast, don’t you think?
I am still at the nice middle stage. I’m not too big and cumbersome yet and I’ve been feeling really well so life is carrying on as normal. In fact, it’s so normal that I’ve often forgotten I’m even supposed to be pregnant. I don’t know how much of this has to do with carrying a singleton after twins. I definitely notice that I’m not as big this time around as I was last time with the two of them. Perhaps that has something to do with me feeling relatively light weighted in comparison.
Tomorrow is the anomaly scan which always makes me nervous. I am looking forward to baby getting the all clear from that so we can relax and enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.
I have been asked a few times whether we will be finding out the sex of the baby. The answer is that we won’t. We found out with the first four children but then found we preferred the surprise in the delivery room so that’s what we’ll be doing again.
I don’t have a hunch either way as to the gender. With the twins I was so convinced that they would be boys, having had six boys in a row. I was convinced that our miscarriages were probably an issue with me being able to carry girls – or not – as the case may be. Then out came two girls so put paid to that theory.
Currently our ratio is seven boys to four girls. Will the boys widen the gap or will the girls edge closer?
