Boy or Girl? I Find Out Today!

It's here!!

Today's the day Matty and I will find out if we're having a little girl or a little boy!  Fingers crossed our little one is not shy!

The funny thing is, I'm not overly excited or nervous for the big reveal.  Maybe I will be when I finally know...but it's not something I've been dying to know from the beginning.  I just can't wait for the chance to see our little baby again.  The last time we saw him/her it was just a little peanut!  Remember??


So little!  And now our baby is a a huge mango and can hear us.  Isn't that just amazing? 

But with this knowledge comes great responsibility.  Now I have to start, you know, doing things.  We've been putting off a lot such as registering, picking out nursery furniture, even talking about names...all until we found out the sex.  Which is today.  Which means today...I can no longer put things off.  Today...I shall make...decisions!!  Eek!  Well, maybe tomorrow.

How Far Along:  19 weeks!  I still can't feel the little booger move...but I know it is.  I'm excited to see all the movement today.  And I haven't mentioned this for fear of jinxing myself...but I haven't gotten sick in over a week!  Yeah!  And no more meds!  I think 18 weeks was my magic number :)  Thank goodness.

Maternity Clothes:  Still a little of both.  But with the cooler temperatures on the horizon, I see the need for a pair of black pants in my future.  And some more shirts!  Let's go shopping, shall we?

Sleep:  I really can't complain.  I still don't get up to pee which I see as a major blessing.  I wake up a lot...but I just roll over and fall back asleep.  I am remembering way more of my dreams lately though.  Last night, for instance, I dreamt I had a baby boy...at 19 weeks...and he came out so small but perfectly fine.  Like, I didn't have to keep him in the hospital at all.  And we were staying at my grandma's house (?) and the baby looked EXACTLY like Matt and had his exact hair already.  It was weird.

Food:   I've still been eating really well during the day.  But we perhaps made a cheesecake last Sunday....of which I have had a piece or two every single day this week when I get home from work.  Dairy = good right?

Best Moment of the Week:  We signed up for all of our childbirth classes!  We aren't taking them until December, but apparently they fill up super quickly so we're good to go there.  Also, although this has really nothing to do with the baby, I have gotten some major packing completed this week and it feels fabulous!

What I'm Looking Forward to:   Finding out the sex of our beautiful baby...and seeing his or her little face TODAY!!!  I'm also looking forward to spreading the news!  My mama completely stole my thunder with my pregnancy announcement so I've learned my lesson.  She is going to find out when everyone else I want to tell does.  Through the mail!  Ha, ha, ha!

I did take a belly pic today...but we ran out of time in the morning to post it...so perhaps I will do that next week!  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  Some friends of Matt's invited us to dinner and a movie tonight, much to my chagrin...is Piranha 3D.  I cannot believe I have to pay money to see this.

So does this mean I'm going to have to wait forever and ever and ever and ever to find out if you're having a boy or a girl until after your family knows? Because that's not cool.
