John and his dad finally started working on building our crib yesterday. It dawned on his dad that I only had 4 months left until the little man came, lol. It is going to be beautiful! Plus it will be a conversion, 3 in 1 bed. They are also building our changing table/dresser. He wanted to do a bassinet as well, but I thought that may be pushing the time limit. Plus I have high hopes that he won't need one :) We will see... I will post pictures once they are all done.

Today is the day that I graduated. From what you might ask? I can no longer fit into the mid-waist elastic pregnancy pants, they are uncomfortable. No, now I get to sport around the full belly panel pants. A little toasty on the tummy in this warmer weather, but will probably be thankful come winter. I can still where the mid-waist for short times, but not for the 8 hour day at work.

I think I found a babysitter. Which makes me happy to no end! But I have a question, what is the going rate per week? She charges $125, is that high?

Our baby

It was so fun and exciting to see the different pictures of our baby up on a monitor. She took a total of 53 pictures and put them on a cd for us to bring home. We are proud to announce that we will become the proud parents of a little baby... BOY! Here are some pictures

Our first ultrasound is scheduled for tomorrow at 3 pm. I hope that the baby cooperates so we can tell the sex. This child moves around a lot, so hopefully I can get him/her to move to show us if he/she is being difficult. My doctor was laughing so hard on Friday because every time he would try to find the heartbeat the baby would move, it took him about 10 minutes to get the baby to settle down so he could count the beat per minute. Guess this child will just be like momma, always on the move!

New Car

We went to Ligonier last night and finally bought a new car! After months of searching car lots and reading reviews, we bought the same car that John already drives :) I am now the proud owner of a 2005 white Ford Five Hundred. We went with this car because it is All Wheel Drive, which will be nice come winter. Plus it still has a sun roof and heated seats :) Happy Me!

I go back to the doctor on Friday and I am so excited for this appointment. It is the appointment where we will set the ultrasound appointment, woohoo! My doctor told me of an odd 'pee' test that you could do that has predicted all of their children's genders. You are supposed to buy Draino crystals and mix with your urine. The crystals start out silver and will change color depending on what you are having. Mine turned blue, so we will see if it is correct. I have read of other tests that are supposed to tell you, one as early as 8 weeks, but I really don't want to pay money for it since they are probably so unreliable. Have a great week!

Month 4

4 months down. I am feeling a heck of a lot better and not as tired anymore. I can't wait for this hot weather to end though, it's a little uncomfortable. Here is the latest picture.
