Big News!!!

We couldn't be happier! We have what appears to be a healthy and on-track baby boy on the way! You should have seen Big Guy's face when he found out that we were expecting a boy- he was so surprised and happy. I am sure I would have been just as surprised and excited if I was having a girl, but it is just so fun to be able to picture your baby and think about them as real..I can't explain it. PLUS it is great to stop saying "it."

Directly after our appointment, Big Guy went straight to Gap and bought this

Monday Monday

This is the big week!!! Wish me luck and keep Big Guy and me in your thoughts and/or prayers!

I will try to remember to take lots of pictures of this next week to share with all of you and I will let you know what we find out at the Doctor's appointment. I am pretty worn out from being sick last week and packing all weekend, but I am doing my best to remember to take it easy and try to relax and that some things aren't worth stressing over. We got a dining set as a gift from Big Guy's parents and it looks pretty great! It was a great deal on Craigslist and a real lucky find since I am not sure of we would have been able to afford to get a nice one for a while, since we have a pretty long list of to-dos for our 100 year old house!!! I couldn't find a good picture to show you, but the people that we bought it from are selling their house so I just grabbed the picture from their real estate listing since it showed the table and part of the hutch/buffet

I had a pretty rough morning. A horrible bus driver tried to kick me off the bus because my transit card expired and the stupid CTA didn't send me a new card in time and my car had a flat, so I dropped it off at the car place near our apartment and I found out they couldn't patch it and Big Guy had to buy me a new tire. I am trying to stay in good spirits though- because I know it is better for me to stay calm and not freak out about things like this- although my pregnancy hormones did kick in and I was tearing on the bus. I hope that bus driver feels like crap.

buy this time tomorrow- I will hopefully be a homeowner!!!
