It's a............??????

Disappointed.  That's all I can say.  We had our ultrasound today and were so excited to be positive about what we're having.  And of course, the little stinker had his (her?) legs crossed THE ENTIRE TIME AND DID NOT WANT TO MOVE AT ALL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.  Nice.  And here I told everyone that we would know for sure after today and I was all ready to go shopping with my mom so she could get a head start on spoiling this kid.  

The technician was able to get one shot where she thought that maybe it was a boy, but she would absolutely not guarantee anything.  So, we get to wait another 4 weeks until my next ultrasound.   Apparently, I may have placenta previa so they want to check again in a month to make sure everything has moved where it's supposed to go.  That will be 4 ultrasounds before I'm 22 weeks. Luckily,  I do love me some ultrasounds, so no complaints here :)  

The good news is that the baby looks healthy and his brain is the right size and he has four arms and legs, so really we're just happy that everything looks good.  I think this is just how I'm being forced to learn patience :(  Sigh.

Private Blogs

I can understand why some people want to make their blogs private.  There are tons of creeps out there.  But here's my complaint:  If I find someone's blog I want to stalk, I don't know how to ask them to be invited.  It doesn't have anyway to send an email or anything, and sorry, I don't have everyone's email addresses memorized.  So to all of you people (like 2) that have commented on my blog, but yours is private-I can't see your blog! And I don't know how to ask you.  So someone please tell me how to do this. Thanks. The end.

Yay for awkward people!

So I was at work the other day and this lady comes up to me:

Lady:  Are you pregnant?
Me:  (Smiling) Yep!
Lady:  I thought so. You're usually thin and today you're not.
Me:  (Blink.  Blink.) Oh.  Um.  Thank you.

I've heard all of my other friends share their stories of mean people who just don't think before they speak, but I hadn't expected to get it so soon.  I'm only 13 weeks woman!
