One more week

My due date is officially 5 months from today. Wow. Only 5 more months before I never sleep again. 5 more months until poop and pee are mainstreams in my day. Only 5 more months until a sweet, little smile is the highlight of my day.

I can't wait.

One more week from today, we have our big ultrasound. I am going crazy with anticipation over this day. We have it scheduled for 7:45 in the morning, and I did that on purpose. There is no way I could wait all day for this. Shoot, I have been waiting 18 weeks for this!! We find out if we have a healthy peanut, and we may also get to find out the gender of our little baby. Curtis was torn on whether or not we should find out. I knew all along that I needed to know. He finally came around a few weeks ago and now he can't wait to find out either.

From the beginning of this pregnancy, I have thought that this baby was a boy. Call it instinct or whatever, I don't know. I just have felt that way almost every day since we found out we were going to be parents. In the last few weeks though, my premonitions have changed and I keep thinking it's a girl. Last night, Curtis said, "I have a feeling that it's a girl." That is the first time that he has told me what he thought the gender could be. Now, it's up in the air. I just don't know!! I am hoping this little one decides to show us the goods. Mostly though, I am looking forward to seeing this little one for the first time in 10 weeks. I can only imagine how much he/she has changed. Now, we have a little person and not a little gummy bear!! And I am nervous about the prospect of what might come. I am putting all my faith in God that this baby is perfect and we will have nothing to worry about. I know He will deliver!

Only 1 more week!! WOO!!

(I put a poll off to the side, so that you readers could vote! So, tell us what you think we are having!! )

I voted girl.

And... I'm glad to know that Curtis came around. That means there is hope for my DH. (Not that I'm pregnant) I think I'm going to NEED to know (the planner in me), but I know Ben won't. :/

Yay! Can't wait. At first I thought girl, but I'm waivering now, too. I'm glad Curtis came around... Don and I both were strongly FOR waiting to find out, so that was good!
