Girl or Boy

When your pregnant everyone wants to know, when the baby is due and if you know if its a girl or boy. If you don't know they ask what do you want? Lately my answer has been another boy. The reason for this is that the new baby and Nathanial will be close in age I thought it would be nice for him to have a brother, they would grow up pretty close in age.

Of course I don't care if its a girl, but thinking about when shes older, the PMS, the moods and teenage girls and their moms. I know how I was, and with my luck I would have a stubborn and very independent girl like I was. But, then theirs the dolls, the games and dress up that you can't really do with a boy. I would like a girl so that Jeff can be afraid of her meeting boys, dating and worrying about how she leaves the house.

All I want is a happy healthy baby and whatever I get I will be happy with.
Since Jeff would like more than 2 and I would like 3 I am thinking that the next one will be spaced a little...let the baby of the family be a girl. Older brothers to protect her and she can mellow the boys:)

Ultra Sound

Today I went to have my 13 week ultra sound done. I had to get the ultra sound, blood test and then see my DR. Well when I was having the ultra sound done, besides wanting to pee so badly I was amazed at what I saw. Nathanial was not a baby who moved so much but this one, was doing the 20 minute workout. Turning around, flipping upside down, letting us see their legs and arms. It was really amazing. Its also amazing to think that in a few months that baby will not be able to do all that I will start feeling all that movement.

Nathanial was great throughout the appointments, my friend Amanda came with me and kept him busy, he was quite happy eating his chicken nuggets, sliced apples and looking at himself in the mirror.

Back to work

Well in 2 days I start back to work and I am not looking forward to it. I think it would be different if I liked the job I am going back to, but how can you like a job when you share a classroom with a teacher who doesn't understand how to work with the kids? He makes my job harder and worst of all doesn't understand pregnancy at all. Last year, he complained to the principal about me going to Dr appointments on my lunch hour or right after work or even when I had morning sickness. He is not an easy person to work with and most other people in the school stay away from him. I of course am stuck for 5 hours in the same classroom with him. I just have to remember its for 4 months.

Thankfully my mom is taking Nathanial for 4 days a week and Jeff on Fridays. My mom lives right across from where I work so thankfully Nathanial is close by.

I am not looking forward to Monday but have to remember its for one week, and then March Break begins. Then back for 2 weeks and off for the first week of April. I have 25 sick days and 4 holy days to take and I plan on taking most of them.
