It's a...........

First and foremost, I am just happy that the u/s seemed to go well. The sonographer didn't tell me anything negative so I am banking on that. I have my dr appt on Tues to go over everything w/ him.

I am super excited to be having another boy. My annoyance lies in the fact that my mom and husband's mom both voiced disappointment upon being told. We were upset about that. See hubby's bro has 3 boys and is done. My brother has 2 boys and is done. I have a boy and 1 on the way and I am done. I guess they saw the "dream" of a little girl as gone. Oh well! Keep it to yourself and let us be excited!

I finally updated the "about me" section. It is starting to feel real and I am glad. I llook forward to enjoying this Easter weekend. I feel so blessed and thankful. And thanks to all of you for your continued support and prayers!

Blog Update

I have been realizing that I really need to update my blog. Especially the "about me" section where it talks about me still ttc. Even though I will be 18 weeks on Friday, I have not let myself get too excited. It is like I don't want to jinx anything. WEll, I've mostly been waiting for the BIG ultrasound which for me will be on Friday. Most people are so excited to find out the sex. By most people, I mean those who get pregnant so easily and take it for granted. For me (and most of you I know) I just want to find out everything is okay! After that, I will update my blog.

Also, I need to update my blogroll of blogs I read. I am taking a cue from my blog friend Elaine. If anyone out there reads my blog....and you don't see your blog on my blogroll, please drop me a line. I would love to add it. For one, I have checked people's blogs after they commented but never got around to saving it in my favorites. Now, I forget the blogs addresses! Secondly, I like to keep up with stories of people especially those of you who are following along on my journey!

Hope you are all doing well. A bunch of you are starting and IVF cycle this month and you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I will update on Friday. Please say a prayer for me that Friday goes well!

Things are moving along, slowly but surely

Had my appt on Tuesday and I am not exaggerating when I say it lasted all of about 5 minutes. They weighed me, took my bp, asked about any problems (I mentioned the continuous spotting/pressure), dr came in and found heartbeat quickly (puffy heart) and gave me script for u/s. If my other son wouldn't have been acting up so much I would've asked more questions but I just took the appt for what it was. The only "weird" part is that he said he wanted to see me in 2 weeks. Normally I go back every 4. I am not sure why, but I 'll take it! I am hoping it isn't b/c there is a problem he isn't telling me about. I do have my u/s sheduled for next Friday so for now, that is my next milestone I look forward to reaching. I could care less about the sex, but hope and pray that he/she is just healthy. Blessings to you all for a happy weekend!

Just Catching Up

I feel like I have so much to say, but just can't put it into words. I am really looking forward to my doctor appt on Tuesday. A month seems so long in between appointments and this time for me it was only 3 weeks. I read blogs every night, but sometimes I just don't feel like writing. I feel like I am in such a weird place. It is hard to write about pregnancy on an infertility site. It's like you don't want to say anything negative because you know there are so many people who would change places with you in a heartbeat. Nonetheless, I am still having a hard time getting over my anxiety. I have been on moderate bed rest and am hoping that my placenta has moved. Luckily for me, I have been entertained by all the reality tv shows that have been on. I am obsessed with American Idol. I also watch Big Brother, both of which are on 3 nights a week. Helps keep me busy. I am sooooo tired of the snow we have been getting in Pennsylvania. Will spring ever arrive???? Well, I will write on Tuesday I am sure. Hopefully with some good news. :)
