I have given up trying to be right about anything at this point. Doug NEVER faltered from his BOY bet and it turns out: he is right again! The ultrasound tech said that there is no doubt, and well, even to the untrained eye, that is definitely a boy! Yesterday I went with my sister to buy my first baby clothes. I brought home a onesie that says: "handsome like daddy" and wrapped it up and gave it to Doug. It is official, with a few more months of growing and a whole lot of luck we will have a son!
A post that is long overdue.
One day, and it was not a good day, my family was having a lot of hard things going on with my
Dad and I had miscarried yet again. This came in the mail from a faraway nephew(and mailed by his mom)
and it just made my week! I have had it by my desk since-it was a gesture so random and with such humor(this little nephew possesses humor in spades) that it made me forget my troubles and laugh out loud.
Thanks Carson, I really needed a laugh and some perspective(and thanks Janelle for sending)

So I bought my first herbs! I LOVE herbs and I LOVE spring so today is a good day.
I also LOVE second trimester instead of being sick all the time.
SO I am off to plant before it snows tomorrow(yes, these will be container herbs in my kitchen at least
for another month or so)

Theme song for the week:
Monday, March 14, 2011
Next month we will find out the sex(until then we are calling it "he" since Doug does so with reckless abandon, not necessarily because he wants a boy, it just comes out that way so why fight it?)

14 Weeks and still kicking!(all 3 of us)
I went off of the progesterone this week which was terrifying to say the least.
My midwife, who I ADORE told me to come in for a "peek" when I started
to feel this way and so I did and BOY did I feel better after that!
Why all of the Ultrasounds? Well, I am part of the EAger Study at the
University ofUtah so that was one at 6.5 weeks, then I have had one every
month of my first trimester to just make sure that we are still on track
(since apparently my body doesn't recognize when a fetus is no longer viable)
I feel really really lucky to be surrounded by many women
that have helped me heal and help me get excited about this one and now
that I am past the scary first trimester, I am starting to believe them!
Thanks to Rebecca, Sue, and my family who continue to cross their
fingers and provide support when I am at my lowest :)
And to Doug--lets hope trimester 2 is more fun than 1--thanks for carrying
the groceries and rubbing my feet--oh and for not moving out.
