Weight Gain: 3.5lbs
Best Moment of the Week: Eating red beans and rice with a fried pork chop!

Gender Prediction: Boy! I've thought boy even before I found out I was pregnant. It was so weird because one morning after I started my fertility medicine, I woke up and had this really strong feeling that I was pregnant and it was going to be a boy.

Best Moment of the Week: Getting to listen to the heartbeat for 2 hours straight!
Worst Moment of the Week: I was sent to L&D because of contractions every 2-3 minutes. I was monitored and sent home saying I was most likely in early labor and Boston would be here in 24 hours. We went home, packed our bags, cleaned the house, and ate our "last meal" (Monster Tacos and curly fries). We tried to sleep but I was too anxious. We woke up the next morning and the contractions were not any stronger so we went to the dr and he said the nurse should have never told us 24 hours and that we had plenty of time left.
