Emotional Rollercoaster

Well, folks, tomorrow is the big day. :) We go for our appointment and ultrasound to find out if our sweetie is a boy or a girl! I have a slew of emotions running through me...

super excited to find out the sex of the baby! I can't wait to call my parents and brother and his family! I totally want to stop by the store and buy an outfit on the way home! :)

*Part of me wants a girl because of this cutie... Look at those sweet cheeks!
Another part of me wants a boy because I absolutely love having a big brother!

-I'm pumped to finally call the baby by his or her name! We will announce the name once we find out what the baby is. :)

-I'm nervous about what the ultrasound will show... will there be 10 fingers and 10 toes? Are all organs developing on track? Will I still be due around the same time? Earlier? Ugh. I'm fairly sure all of these are normal questions that
mommies-to-be have at this point, so I'm desperately trying and reminding myself every minute of the day to give this stuff to God and let Him deal with it. :)

-Believe it or not, I'm a wee bit sad that this whole pregnancy thing is halfway over. :( I love being pregnant! Not that I'm not excited to meet this little person growing inside of me that is going to change our world forever, but I'm kind of attached to it right now... Now, check back with me in a few months. I'll probably totally be ready to meet the little bundle of joy! :)

Ok, that's it for my emotions for now. No new pregnancy info besides the fact that sometimes I just cry for no good reason. :) My energy is still in good shape. I've started walking/working out with some friends from work, and we have a great time! It is a little harder to get around and maneuver while carrying around a *cantaloupe, but thankfully, I have Eric to help me! He is such a blessing. :) I can't wait to see him as a Daddy.

*On Friday, we'll be 20 weeks. Here's what
The Bump shows about our babe:
I will spare you the details it says about the digestive stuff and oil/skin cells our baby is making... :) He or she does have sweet little fingernails now, though! :)

Oh, one more thing I always want to remember... I'm in my class during Writing Workshop today writing about tomorrow and how exciting it will be, yada yada... I told my kids that the doctor will tell us if we are having a boy or a girl. One child yells out, "Or if you have a boy and a girl in there!" Another said, "Or if you have twins or triplets!" OMG. I almost fell out of my chair! I sweetly told them that hopefully there's no one playing hide and seek in there! We also took a vote: 15 think it's a boy and 6 think it's a girl! :) They want me to call them tomorrow night to tell them! I told them it would be a surprise on Thursday! :)

How can you not love them? :)

That first ultrasound is so exciting and scary at the same time. Everything you are feeling is so normal. The fears can overtake you sometimes especially when you hear such tragedies. But remember, "Be anxious for nothing. . ." We'll be praying for you! There is nothing like that moment when you hear "It's a . . ." And let me just say, the moment I found out Selah was a girl, I wet DIRECTLY to the mall, ran into Gymboree, and bought the most girly outfit I could find!!! Thank goodness because I had no idea I had three little monsters coming behind her!!!!! :) GOD BLESS YOU!
