I would like to announce that we are expecting a...

I'm thrilled. Even though I was really hoping for a girl, I just 'knew' that it would be a boy (hahaha---yeah, ummm, okay...). When we got to the ultrasound clinic, the tech brought me in first. She lubed me up and I was just ready to cry because I had to pee so badly. She kept the screen pointed at her face while she did some measurements and afterwards, when I asked her what it was, she turned the screen to face me. Susan (tech) pointed out three little lines on the screen and since I had previously heard that three lines means girl, I happily proclaimed "It's a girl!"-then the tech said, "No, that's outdoor plumbing." So, trying to sound equally as happy, I said, "It's a boy!". I don't know if she bought it. :)

John and my mom came in and the tech did some fun shots of the babe. He seemed to like to play with himself (great, I've got a perv on my hands...) and he kept putting his hands on his face. Susan showed us his face up close and he started making these movements with his mouth that made him look like he was talking. I think he was trying to politely ask me to empty my bladder a bit because he was getting cramped.

All in all, I'm thrilled. It's just so nice to know what we're having and bond with him and daydream about him. Every time he kicks me, I imagine what he's going to look like and what type of personality he's going to have. I'm just so happy right now.

Very Important Date

At approximately 3:20p, I will be lying on a table. Belly smeared with gel, I'll be anxiously looking at a monitor to catch the second glimpse of the little sprout that I've been growing.

I'm beside myself with excitement----this is much more intense than Christmas. I'm so nervous as to whether the baby is healthy and if I've done anything that could have possibly prevented optimum health and development. I'm hoping that the sonogram provides at least a bit of reassurance.

I'm also going to find out if we have a baby girl or boy on our hands. No matter which, I think I'm equally excited... I can see the plus sides for both and I just can't wait for the final word (and I know, I know.... you never really know until you deliver, but you get my drift).

Six degrees left of center.

I'm off today. Feeling a little light-headed and generally blech. I have two clients tonight to train and then I'm heading home to clean up a bit. My office at home is a pigpen. If all goes well, I'll snap some digital pics when I get home-as a 'before' and then I'll do my sprucing and take another picture. Maybe someone can give me some decorating ideas?

Nothing else really going on-life is happy and uneventful these days. I'm sleepy today despite the seven and a half hours of sleep I got last night. I have mounds of homework that's overdue and I'd be lying if I said I haven't been seriously considering just bailing on these two courses. I've got about a month left and I've invested the cash in the books and courses themselves. I'm just not motivated and jaded by my lack of determination to finish. Even if I just scrape by, it's still a win, right? Blah.
