Baby Update {19 weeks pregnant!}

My 2 year old answering the question "Where's the baby?"
We've been away this week camping, and now I am buried in stinky camp laundry and miscellaneous other to-do's, but I had an ultrasound yesterday and I thought I'd take a quick moment to let you all know that...

...we're having a GIRL!

I love finding out the gender of the baby.  Personally I enjoy the remainder of the pregnancy so much more when I know my babies name.  I feel like I already know her a little bit. And in only 21 more weeks (give or take) I'll be holding her in my arms!

Thank you so much to all of you who have rejoiced with us over this pregnancy, encouraged and blessed me with kind words of congratulations, and prayed for me in that first trimester when I felt wretched.  I appreciate it.

I'll be back next week with some organizing and cleaning posts, but today I am going to tackle piles of laundry and try to figure out how to fit my air mattress back in its box.

In the mean time, here are some fun photos from our camping trip.

  3. Congratulation on you newest little girl that's coming. Wow, camping with baby twins! My twins are a year old and while we definitely get out and do a lot I can't imagine camping. We are going camping labor day though.. Any tips?

  4. Hey, congrats! I am right at 19 weeks too! It is our second and we have decided (for now) not to find out the gender...we'll see how far we get with that.
    And another girl, how precious :)

  5. congratulations! I'm so impressed you are going camping! We have 4 kids and our youngest being 3 1/2 months old and are planing to go camping in August. The fam is super excited, but I'm already doing self therapy to survive the camping trip ;) LOL.

  10. Congrats on your sweet baby girl. But, I have to know...are those potatoes on the grill? How does that work?! ;-)

    1. We cut them up and wrap them in foil with oil and salt and cook over the camp fire while we cook the bacon and eggs, and then we toss the potatoes on a griddle that fits our campstove with some of the bacon grease to finish them off and give them crispy edges! We've made them entirely on the griddle before (if we're too lazy to start a fire in the morning), but that takes much longer.

  16. I'm going for my ultrasound today (I'm 18 weeks) and we are going to try to find out the gender this time. With our last baby the hospital had a new policy where they wouldn't tell the gender.

    1. Hi Jordan! I'm not sure what tips I can offer except to make a good master list of what you need and keep meals reasonably simple. It is alot of work, but I think it's worth it! Also, I think that camping with a lot of kids is easier at a smaller park where things like showers and laundry and play parks are all within walking distance from the campsite. We really like Bonnechere Provincial Park in the Ottawa Valley. I'm not brave enough to tackle Algonquin until the kids are much older! :)
