Blue or Pink?

I have a feeling this blog is going to be devoted to baby-related things for the next few months. I am into the second trimester and starting to feel a little pregnant now. We had a doctor's appointment last week, and I got to see the little one sucking its thumb. We find out if it's a boy or a girl in three weeks! So, of course, it's been on my mind. I have no idea what I'm having and don't really care either way. A boy would be fun for Cash and convenient for me with all of the blue stuff I own. A girl would be different and equally fun, although I'm pretty sure my budget would be ruined with buying all the cute girl's clothes out there.
I took this Gender Calculator and it says I am having a girl. This calculator was also correct in predicting Cash's gender and was right for several of my friends' kids. Was it right for you or your babies? Let me know!

No Maternity Clothes Needed!

Fashion in Japan right now goes something exactly like this:

Take one flowy blouse + one skirt + one pair of leggings of various color and length = hot fashion!

I need to get some real pics of the clothing stores up, but I just have to say I love it. Another popular outfit is a dress with a pair of jeans and flats. These women are crazy about layering! And everyone wears huge flowy tops that I don't have to worry that I'm wearing something that makes me look pregnant, because everyone looks like that. Hooray! Now, can I pull off a look like that?

P.S. No, I don't even look close to being pregnant. I think it may have something to do with the fact that I've been good about exercising. I'm coming up on that awkward stage of "that girl has a fat belly", which is what Japanese people think of typical American women anyways. Boohoo. On the plus side (ha ha), I haven't grown out of my pants quite yet, which I had at this point in time with my first pregnancy. They are getting tight, though. So, I am coming up on a look that says "Chubby belly and too tight pants!" Woohoo!
