Monday - again

I have been the quiet one. Things here are going along fine... So far. I am working hard on enjoying this pregnancy, but I have to say it is difficult. It seems unfair to me that I have to WORK to enjoy my pregnancy, yet the majority get to just enjoy.

We did some yard work yesterday. Hubby HATES yard work... now let me tell you he KNEW that there would be a lot of yard work when we bought a house with nearly 12 acres, 6 of which need mowed and tended to. Men! I sat on the riding mower yesterday and got a wee bit burned, but not bad. It wasn't really hot out and yes, I was drinking my water :)

We're going to Florida on Wednesday. Hubby won some competition in school, and now is competing in the nationals. So he gets his trip paid for, and I only have to pay for mine :) I'll get to see him a bunch too, which will be nice.

Pregnancy talk:

I am 18w6d today. Amazing.

Had an ultrasound last week to check on my cervix. It is nice and long and closed. 4.3 cm long to be exact. Got the tech to look at the baby too. It was fun watching him move around :). Also looked to see if we could tell, and the "him" in the prior sentence is most likely correct! I'm pretty psyched, as hubby is the only boy in his family (he has 3 sisters, 4 cousins and 3 nieces - all girls). He is psyched too. We've been talking about names.

Had my quad screening done too. Still waiting for those results. We'll then get either a level II ultrasound or a regular anatomic survey, depending on the results. If we get the Level II, we have to go to the cities, which makes it a little more difficult to do, but not impossible :)

Hope you are all doing well.

Hi Kellie
Thanks for checking in.I'm glad things are going well.I'm so excited you are having a boy too. I would have been excited if you were having a girl but it will be nice to trade boy stories with you. I am 19 weeks and 5 days today. Just about half way there.
