Tune in Tomorrow

The girls are tucked away in bed, Sean and I are weary from a weekend of home improvements and trying to shake this nasty bug that has taken stubborn root in our chests. I came downstairs this morning, head feeling heavy and swollen, and perched on the couch in front of Sean.

"What are you doing?" He asked.

"Umm, just waking up. I feel like hell."

"Why don't you go back to bed?" He asked.

"Ummm, I don't know."

"Go. Take care of yourself. Sleep." He smiled.

"Ummm, ok, " I'm particularly brilliant and articulate while pregnant and sick in the morning.

I trudged upstairs, looked at the clock which read 9:30, and rolled face down in the pillow with a whimper and a mercilessly stuffy nose snort. Next thing I knew the clock read 11:30. I sat up, nose better, but now my head was throbbing. I made straight for the kitchen for the one inarguably acceptable drug for pregnant women and a glass of oj. Then coffee. I was approaching punky bliss. Entering the newly mocha-riffic fireplace room and I was renewed.

*****************

We head to Albany early tomorrow for an ultra-sound, the big anatomy scan. I have every intention of sending Sean off with the images for posting here tomorrow night or early Tuesday morning.

Care to make a wager on whether we're baking up a little girl or a little boy?

I am betting a BOY!

Hmmm. I'm thinking Sean will continue to be out numbered. Which STILL means it could be a boy OR a girl.

Heather said...

I'm guessing the BLUE team.

Randi said...

I'm going out on a limb and saying BOY, because every one should have a little boy running around;)

Lisa Milton said...

Zack just walked in and he is going with BOY. No surprise there.

Lexi came up with some long explanation of why it really could be either, etc, etc, and then who is this again? And how do you know her?

Ei yi yi, why did I ask?

(Hope your appointment goes well.)

I say girl, just because everyone I know IRL who had two girls and went for a third now have three delicious little princesses in their house.

And they couldn't be happier.

Kristy said...

Boy! I am so excited to find out!

Christine said...

i say GIRL!

Crystal said...

I am guessing a girl. Yep, 3 little chicks, that is what I predict.

Feeling girl, hoping boy but only because those two girls will absolutely DOTE on a baby brother (and I can share penis stories with you).

BOSSY said...

Boy. But really anything as long as it's not a Pumpkin Pie.

Damselfly said...

Boy!

girl (statistically once you have 2 of one, your more likely to keep having the same. or so I'm told)
