I love being pregnant. I'm just about 30 weeks now, which means only 7 more weeks to go. Time flies when you have a 16 month old!

This pregnancy has been so different than my pregnancy with Jackson. With Jackson, I gained a whooping 50 lbs! Keep in mind that I'm only 4'11 or as I like to say, 5 ft. So far, I've only gained 25 lbs. this time around and I'm still in my normal jeans. I don't mean to brag, but I'm super happy about that. I haven't had any morning sickness and besides the normal aches and pains, I feel great. And no acne this time around... that has to be my favorite part. I hated the acne.

When we first found out we were pregnant, Jacob and I couldn't wait to find out the sex of the baby. But as time went on and I started thinking about it, I thought that it would be the most wonderful surprise to wait until the big day to find out if this little baby is a girl or boy. Jacob, on the other hand, wanted to know. But after talking him into it, he thought it would be nice to wait too. Which is a good thing because there's no way he could keep that secret from me.
I've managed to go 7 months without creating a whole gender neutral wardrobe for this baby. I must say, I am very proud of myself. But there were a few so cute outfits that I just couldn't resist.

We've decided on a girl's name, but we can't commit to a boy's name. If I like a name, he doesn't and vice verse. Hopefully we can decide when the time comes... if we need to.

I can't wait to meet this little baby. It's going to be bittersweet for me. I'm going to be thrilled to finally hold this baby in my arms, but this may be my last pregnancy and I'm a little sad about that. I love feeling the bumps and kicks, and I may never experience this again.
I am nervous about having two children so close in age. I imagine that Jackson isn't going to be too pleased to have to share his attention with another baby. I am a little worried about how he's going to react to the change. Hopefully he'll adjust well... we'll see.

But anyways, I'm going to enjoy the next 7 weeks to the fullest and take in all the Jack Jack that I can =)
