I don't really want this space to be all about baby stuff and mommy talk and hormone talk 24-7. But I'm starting to feel like I want to share certain things with you throughout this experience. It would be more of the different and unique feelings/experiences that happen.  Dreams would be a good example.  I've always remembered my dreams and mostly all of the time, they were really random and crazy dreams.  I've read that in pregnancy, your dreams become even more clear, more real, and very vivid.  Well they hit the nail right on the head with me at least. I've noticed a huge transformation in my dreams over the past few weeks.  They are so clear, so vivid and feel so real; but in a creepy/odd way. 
16 weeks!

For instance, last night I dreamt a lot of different things. But what stuck out the most was taking our baby "boy" out from somewhere.  Yes, somewhere; not me.  It looked totally healthy but it was out at 16 weeks, or at least that's what it felt like. It's hard to explain, this lovely sub-conscious of ours.   I remember Gary was holding it and and just said, "oh...yup. yup!  there it is." I assumed it was a penis and screamed out, "it's a boy, isn't it?!"  And he looked like such a sweet, beautiful baby boy.  It was SO realistic.  Creepy, right?  No wonder I woke up drenched in sweat. 

We then placed him in some box/case and he slept for a while.  End of freaky dream.  I don't want to look too much into my dreams either or I'll go bonkers.  But overall, my dreams have been similar to that one.  Some have babies in them, others don't but all are so very vivid. I've been sleeping wonderfully and deep and sound.  Maybe it's these dreams that are so intense and tend to seem long that are keeping me asleep. Whatever it is, I'll take it!

I hope in three weeks, when I anxiously made the appointment for it, we can find out the sex! I'm pretty flippin' excited!  Say a prayer that this kid cooperates on debut day; so to speak. 

Maybe tonight's dream will have a baby girl in it.

Boy or Girl...can't wait! 

Happy Friday!
