It's that time... Really it is

(anyone know why my spell check isn't working?)

Our apartment is no longer a baby(stuff) free zone. We made our first baby related purchase. A friend of mine found this on cra.igs.list for $20 in our area. So, Saturday morning, we went and bought it. I was/am so excited about this purchase. My husband was not a fan of having "that stuff" in our house for a while. So, I feel as if it's a new chapter. We broke the trend. my husband laughed that our first purchase is a safety item purchase - he says that is a not so subliminal message about us as a couple. We (finally) cleaned up the place this weekend - or as much as I could get help with. I have been neglecting it quite a bit and it was beginning to become very overwhelming. E got a sore throat/ear ache and didn't feel like tackling the "big stuff" Like I had hoped for. But there is a floor now, and a couch, and a kitchen, table etc. It is starting to look much much better.

We were going to see J.un.o yesterday, but i decided against it. So I told E to pick a movie instead. he picked this ( for me obviously). It is a pretty, cutesy movie, pretty romantic and just like you expect it to be. I just eat these cheesey movies up. I know i know ..I shouldn't admit that. I also find HIM (or his movie characters) So utterly YUMMILICIOUS!!! Which made the movie all more enjoyable.

Ok so .. Now, It's that time, the one that seems like it was never going to come, but I wasn't sure I wanted it to come time. You know, the "do i want to know, or not know" debate that I have been having with this blog and in my head. Well, We have our anatomy scan for sure tomorrow at 1:30 by the mfm dr's. I think I said things like "no. I don't want to know, but the suspense is killing me, Yes, let's just find out..... BUT NO, let's not and be like in when our parents were pregnant.. WHO am I kidding, There is nothing about this pregnancy that is like any of our parents" ... So on the way to the movies my husband (who never really voices his opinion) states that he would like to know. He knows that I can't make this decision on my own and knows that I really want to know I am being held up and bound by some kind of fear, rationaland/or irrational. Have I mentioned that honestly - he is just the perfect balance for my all time craziness...I truly got lucky in this department. He is just so completely perfect for me and must really pay attention because he just knows what to do to keep me sane (most of the time).

ok tangent... all that to say ..It's really that time ... 25+ hours, one more sleep, We will know.

Yay for one more sleep! I'm very excited to find out if Mini Vann is a he or a she. :) Isn't craigslist the best thing ever?!? We sold an old hutch that we had on CL over the weekend and I was stoked!

Lots of luck tomorrow!

Just itching to hear how your appointment went.
Your weekend sounds like fun-that first purchase had to feel so darn good.

Yay for the first purchase! I think that Mini Vann is a boy or a girl. All hail the extent of my prognastication abilities!

If you do find out why spell check on Blogger isn't working, let me know. I thought it was just me who couldn't get it to work. :)

I can't wait to find out tomorrow your results!!!

I don't use spell check much, but I have heard others talk about it so I don't think it is just yours....

LIW (Lady In Waiting) said...

Wow- so close to finding out. That anticipation must be intense! And congrats on purchasing some baby stuff. I honestly am not sure how I will ever get to that point so I think I will use you as my guide, if that's ok with you, of course. :-)

XOXOXO

I've never known a single person that had one of those things...you'll have to let me know how it works...you know, for next time. I don't think Lila would tolerate it at her age ;).

So, you're going to tell us the sex when you find out right??

When your waffling on a decision and your partner is sure . . .it will always tip the scales - which is why DH and I are always eating too much ice cream.

I things went well at your appointment!
