I fell in the toilet...

...TWICE this weekend. I know, I know. I live in a house full of boys, it's to be expected. Except, it wasn't the fault of the males in my house. It was totally my fault. After my vomiting this weekend, I forgot to put the toilet seat down! And then went to go potty later, and FELL in! Ugh.

Today, according to my doctor's u/s, puts me at the first day of the 2nd trimester. I'm really excited. Except I barfed this morning. I'm hoping today was just a risidual from the 1st trimester, and things are only going to look up!

This pregnancy has been one for the crazy dream handbook! I remember having ridiculously vivid dreams when I was pregnant with Julian and Gabriel. I remember having a specific delivery dream with Gabe that turned out to be ridiculously close to the truth. This pregnancy, I've already dreamt of nursing the baby (my biggest wish, and something that I am hoping to be successful at. Hey 3rd time is the charm right?!), delivering the baby IN AN AMBULANCE, with Julian and Gabe sitting next to me. Last night though, last night was the best dream ever. I was at Walmart, but it was AMAZING Walmart. And everything they have online was in store. So the pink bike I have been lusting over for years, was in store. First of all, let me go back and say that I was at Amazing Walmart on Black Friday. And there were Christmas decorations everywhere. I dropped Gabe off at child-watch, THANK GOD Walmart doesn't have a real child-watch! Could you imagine!? And headed back to find my bike, and a random assortment of wooden toys. I was cruising on my bike through Walmart! CRAZY! Ok so I guess this dream isn't as crazy as my nursing dream (sparing the details) and my ambulance delivery, but I hardly ever remember my dreams.

So I was considering getting an early ultrasound at like 16 weeks (the earliest the ultrasound place said I could come in) and finding out the gender early. Barry seems to think it is silly to find out just 2-4 weeks early. I can understand that, but on the other hand, I REALLY want to know! Plus I think it would be better for Julian, who's SO sure he's having a sister (even Gabe's jumped on the 'didder' band wagon!) to have the ultrasound done in a private setting vs. the doctor's office. If we do wait until my BIG ultrasound, we're bringing J. I need someone other than me to tell him that he's having a brother, if he is. I'm afraid that if I try to tell him, or Barry, he won't believe us. So what do you think? Is it stupid to spend $90 to find out 2-4 weeks early? Be honest, be real, I just want to know if I'm being dumb!

i dont think that it is crazy, but, personally, i would just wait because i wouldn't want to pay so much money for only having the possibility of finding out. i'm cheap like that!

Totally worth it! And it is a perfect place to take the boys to see the whole experience. There is plenty of room for the family, and the screen is huge. I think they will love it! :)
