Baby Herschberger: Week 21

IT’S A BOY!!!!! Man-oh-man it is fun to know we’re having a son and since we have a name picked out we can start calling him by his name - Simon Joseph Herschberger! Kyle’s grandpa was Simon J, and Kyle’s middle name is Joseph. We’ll call him Si like they did grandpa.

The whole week was really just building up to the ultrasound on Thursday and the party on Saturday. I worked on stuff around the house and got a few projects finished, the garage cleaned, my craft room cleaned (again), and everything purchased and ready for the party!

I think the highlights can be summed up in these pictures. Alt text Clockwise from upper left:

Now, I’ll do the pregnancy update.

Weight gain: 8.26.13 Update: I have gained 8lbs total since I got pregnant.

What I’ve been eating: Haha. The Chief twice this week, when we dropped Kyle’s bike off AND when we picked it up. Otherwise nothing crazy.

Baby/pregnancy purchases: The glider/ottoman is our biggest baby purchase and we ordered it this week! It will take around 10 weeks for them to finish it.

Babies growth and development status: According to “The Bump” app baby Si should be the size of a pomegranate, 10.5 inches and 12.2 ounces. But according to the ultrasound Si is measuring a little bigger! Most measurements were a couple days to a week ahead, the head was over a week ahead, and he already weighs 1 pound! He was not moving much in the ultrasound (despite the fact that I drank a little caffeine, something I’ve practically sworn off, in hopes of making sure he wouldn’t be too modest!). The tech even jabbed him a couple times trying to get him to move an arm or a leg.

Just a few pregnancy ramblings this week:
