When the Stars Go Blue...

By now most of you already know that we're having a boy! If you don't, I apologize for the delay in posting this. We found out on Tuesday and have just been wrapped up in the excitement!

Tuesday's appointment was long. The baby was breech so it was hard to take some of the measurements, especially of the heart. When the tech first said that the baby was breech, I immediately panicked and asked her if we would still be able to tell the sex. She said we should be able to...whew! Matt and I had invited both of our families and some friends over for dinner that night to give them the news and I would have been devastated if we couldn't have found out. After an hour of rubbing that gooey probe all over my belly, the technician began to wipe off my stomach and I was like wait, aren't you going to tell us the sex?! Oops! She probed again and within seconds she revealed that it was a boy! The Dr. was in the room at the time too and he took one look at the screen, and said, "it's definitely a boy." Matt was so proud!

Our family started arriving around 6 and by 6:30, everyone was getting anxious. I had wanted to come up with a creative way of telling everyone, but as they often do, my good attentions get lost in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, so I just said it. Boring, I know, but nonetheless, everyone was thrilled. Thanks to all of our friends and family for giving us such cute outfits, for making food, for helping clean up and for just being there.

I'm in my
19th week and there haven't been any changes. I still feel super, with the exception of this morning. I was a bit nauseous, but it passed after I had a delicious walking taco for breakfast. What is a walking taco? Well, it's when you cut open the side of a mini Dorito bag, crush up the chips, and then fill the bag with all of your favorite taco fillings! I was first introduced to this scrumptious meal in a bag at the Iowa State Fair. Last night, after Italia and I handed out candy, we made these for dinner. I ate four throughout the course of the evening. Then Matt, Tal, Ry and I watched Strangers, which was an awful waste of time...don't bother renting this one.

I'm off to the Carter's and Gap Outlets to see what I can find for our son :)
