Birthdays and Clothes

Ram, his dad, and all 3 Lambs have spring birthdays. Ewe, Ewe's mom, Ram's mom, and Lamb 4 all have fall birthdays. It would be nice if Lamb 4 was a girl to keep our pattern of boys=spring birthdays and girls=fall birthdays.
I think I'm going to have to buy some maternity clothes. I don't get very big when I'm pregnant (well, at least not for the first 3 Lambs!), but big enough that my clothes don't fit. I made do with just a few pairs of pants and a few dresses for when I go out of the house and wore pajamas around the house. Ram's mom got me a few really nice maternity dresses when I was pregnant with Lamb 1. They are all long sleeved and/or winter colors. This time when I'm big enough to need maternity clothes it is going to be late spring/summer. My current maternity clothes won't do.
I know many of you will not understand this, but I have some maternity clothes that still have the tags on them because I never got big enough to wear them. Pam said I was the skinniest pregnant woman she ever met. But it truly was a problem in my previous pregnancies that my regular clothes didn't fit but some maternity clothes were too big.
I'm being careful what I wish for because I don't want to go to the other extreme and be so big that most maternity clothes don't fit, but it would be really nice to have a "normal" pregnancy and not have to continually go to ultrasounds the whole pregnancy because I'm not getting big enough even though the baby is just fine.
I've also been thinking that if this is a boy we'll probably have to get new clothes for him because all the newborn clothes are spring/summer type and that pattern continues for the first year of baby clothes. I really hope this is a girl so if we have to buy new clothes we at least get to buy some girl clothes!

I have two pretty sundresses I wore this time you want them? One is goldenrod and light brown plaid...I had to wear a tank under it and a short sleeved sweater over it to not look immodest...but it is cute and knee length. The other has a black tank and a black green and white skirt...I wore with a black cardigan into the Fall...also about knee length. Let me know. The girl I am giving my maternity things to here is due in May, so won't need the summery things. I also have a few pairs of capris and a khaki pair of shorts. I'd be more than happy to send them to you!

I hope you have a girl as well...they are fun! It is nice to have variety!
