So the parasite growing inside me is still a boy. It is supremely hard to believe that in a little over 12 weeks I can have an outside baby of my own. On Monday the hubs and I will leave for a mini vacation before the baby gets here. I am not that excited because we are driving, I don't like driving vacations, and we don't have a real game plan. I need to have things planned out, and I don't have a book to read on the beach or a project to work on. But we are making a stop at a tiny baby boutique to check out the Bumbleride stroller I really want, and at 6 months pregnant, I look just like I did before. I lost 20 pounds in the first 16 weeks, then was at a standstill until last week. Now at 25 weeks I have gained 3 pounds, still down 17.

So I had an ultrasound, and it was totally awesome! Everything is looking really good and normal with the baby and it turns out we are having a boy!!! I totally thought it was a girl for the past 2 weeks or so. I had a dream that I changed my baby girl's diaper, so in that moment I was going to be a mom to a girl. My intuition sucks! baby boy. I really have got to get knitting and quilting and figuring out what needs to go where to make room for baby! Off to do some more research on baby stuff.

So as far as I know, and according to the first ultrasound, I am having a baby!! I have anther ultrasound on Monday, and I already saw the heartbeat, so things are looking good. I am currently only 7 weeks along, and due in Feb 2011. I am still being very cautious, and very few people know, so keep this on the down low.

So last night was the Lost finale and I was so super disappointed by the entire thing. This last season has not bee what I expected, but I was at a Lost party and had a great time even thought the show was not what I expected.
I began the Traveling Sweater from Blue Moon Fiber Arts, and this sweater is going to take me forever. I have one wedge out of eight done, and then I still have the sleeves. I love the color of the Woobu, which is called Stormy Weather, and I have another few skeins of Tumbleweed that I might use this winter for the same Traveling Sweater.
And finally in quilt news, I finished the label for the back so that I can identify my quilts better when I get old, and the entire thing is halfway done and I need to flip it again. But I am having problems, my jaw hurts like none other, I have some sort of sore in my gums and it is pressing on the nerves of my teeth. My right side of my upper jaw is painful so I am having trouble sleeping and just in general.

Si I have blown through the first 2 books in the Sookie Stackhouse collection. I have just began on the third book and I hope to get it done in time for the third season of True Blood, but I have a feeling that it wont be a problem.
So I have had my trigger shot for this month's cycle, and now I wait. I feel really optimistic and hopeful for this month, and I think my husband is too. He started at the new job already and this saturday is his last day. His replacement started work today, and I guess he is trying to train him as best he can.
I am still quilting, trying to get it done before the summer hits in full swing. I hope I will get it done, because I am already a third of the way done. So there you have it for now, nothing much different.

So I survived another Mother's day. I am not a mother, and although I have a wonderful mother and mother-in-law, I still feel like it is a punch in the guts. My mother, sister and I all went to the Blue Owl for lunch and pie, of course. We went on Saturday thinking they wouldn't be so busy, but we waited 45 minutes and the room kept filling up with at least half a dozen babies. It was hard, especially since my nerves were already fried from the wait and the stress of this cycle.
So My mom and us girls had a great time, and then on Sunday we had a brunch and cards and gifts and everything. Not so bad, I got my mom 2 Koi fish for her outside pond, and one is orange and white and the other is silverish blue and black. She loves them, so I am happy.
And finally last night we did my In-laws for mothers day. We went to see Cirque du Soliel, and then had dinner afterwards. We had a great time, and there were no small children. I know it really sounds like I have no use for small children at all, but it is all for the fact that I am not a mother, everytime I see my mom gaze at a baby it hurts because I haven't made her a grandma. It is had that everywhere I go I am surrounded by babies. But life must go on and I am living for Friday morning.

So today I don't have much to say, but making blogging a part of my daily life is what I want. The hubs got done with training, so whenever they call him in to work he can show up and make money! I am working on the farm everyday and hopefully have some time to quilt, I have totally fallen out of the zombie knitting I was doing before. I love to pick up an old craft and get so into it. I really want to make a quilt for my husband, and I think I have settled on a row quilt of a few different blocks. That is another quilt that I have waited to make for so long.
In baby news I am finishing pills tomorrow, and I have a doctors appointment for Friday, so now we wait. I am feeling rather excited about this cycle, which is strange because it is coming on 2 years now. How can I be so hopeful after so long? I have no idea, but I am doing good and the hubs hasn't lost hope. So I shall leave it at this.
