It's a boy!

My ultrasound on Tuesday went well. The baby appears to be very healthy, and we found out that we are having another boy. Although I was hoping for a girl, I'm sure a little brother will be lots of fun for Nathanael. :-) From the profile shot, we think he will look a lot like Nathanael, too. The baby seems to be due a week earlier than the first due date I was given, which I expected. I knew the first date was off by about a week. So I am probably 20 weeks along today, rather than 19. :-)

Our new little boy will share Nathanael's "Peter Rabbit" bedroom, so I bought an adorable Beatrix Potter quilt kit to make for him. I'm also going to make a Peter Rabbit diaper bag, and baby sling. I'm working on a maternity dress now, so I have my work cut out for me. Haha But I'm sure I'll have lots of fun sewing such cute stuff. :-)

Pregnancy update- 18 weeks along

Here is my 18 week pregnancy picture. I am wearing the same top as last time, so you can see exactly how much bigger I am now. Haha
I am feeling a lot better, but still feel sick before dinner, etc.
My 18-19 week ultrasound is this Tuesday. We are so excited! I told Nathanael he will get to see pictures of the baby on a computer screen, so he is pleased about that. :-)
I can't wait to find out if the baby is a girl or a boy! Then I can start getting more baby things ready. :-) Fun!

Newly decorated guest room, etc.

Over the Easter long weekend, my dear husband, Ben, painted the guest bedroom a pretty pale pink. Then we put up the rose border together. I am very happy with the results. Actually, I like to spend a lot of time in there now. Haha If the baby is a girl, she will have this room. If not, it will remain a lovely guest room. :-) Almost everything in this room was either second hand ( free or inexpensive) or handmade by me.
I thought I'd share a picture of the new netting and bumper pads I bought for the baby's cradle. It looks so cute! The cradle is actually Ben's (and his sisters') from when they were babies. Very special. :-)

I'll have to get Ben to take a picture of me again soon so I can post another pregnancy update. :-)
