Well, we just couldn't wait until June 4th to find out the sex of the baby.  I was DYING to know!!  I obsessed over it daily.  So, we broke down and went to The Prenatal Experience and did the gender determination ultrasound.  It was so cool.  We did the 2D/4D ultrasound (which you can watch in the last post).  The 4D was really cool.  We could really see baby's face.  Anyway, the ultrasound tech was 3,000% sure that it's a girl!  I am so excited!  We immediately went to Target and bought some girly stuff (pink hangers, some socks, a few outfits).  I just had to satisfy that itch I had to buy baby stuff.  I had been wanting to buy stuff for a while but I couldn't because we didn't know the sex! 

Now on to the difficult stuff.......finding bedding.  I cannot find any bedding that I like.  If anyone out there finds any cute websites with baby bedding, send it my way!

I was thinking the other day about how lucky I am.  I have been so fortunate in this pregnancy.  I have not been sick once, the nausea was minimal at the very beginning, and I haven't had any cravings (in fact, I find it hard to figure out what I want to eat).  My moodiness hasn't been awful and I haven't gained a ridiculous amount of weight.  I am so blessed.  This baby girl had been good to me!

Well, next week is the last week of school!  Thank goodness!  I am so ready for this break.  I really don't think I could make it another week.  I will miss this class though.  This class went through a lot with me.  They saw me get married and pregnant!  They're a special group. 

Well, I'm off to do some cleaning before we head down to the pool.  I cannot believe I'm going to get in a bathing suit.  YIKES!  With that being said, I'll leave you with a pic of my belly at 18 weeks.

Spread 'Em!

14 MORE DAYS, PEOPLE!!!  14 more days until the end of school and summer is here!  It cannot come soon enough, that's for sure!  I just can't wait to have time for my house, my dogs, my baby, and my husband.  It's a struggle for me to keep the house clean and cook meals.  I am so exhausted by the time I get home, especially now that I'm pregnant.  Anyway, June 4th can't get here soon enough!
June 4th is also a HUGE and EXCITING day because that's when we find out the sex of the baby!!!!!  Man, we cannot wait.  We went yesterday for our regular check up and had an ultrasound.  We were really hoping we would be able to tell the sex of the baby then, but Little Peanut had it's legs curled up.  I was tapping on my belly saying, "Spread 'em!".  But, it didn't work!  Scott, of course, wants a boy and I am a bit partial to a girl.  Although, I feel rather strongly that it is indeed a boy.  I will be happy with either as long as it is healthy.  We just can't wait to become parents.  I can't wait to look my baby in the eye and know that Scott and I created that.  I'm sure it will be an amazing feeling.

We both have been super busy at work.  Scott has been working hard, as always.  I've been super busy myself lately.  I have been planning and working on the Rainforest play for the entire first grade.  The play is this Friday and I can't wait until it's over.  We've been practicing twice a day this week and the kids have been nuts!  I'm pooped!  But, the play should be super cute! last thing!  We finally received our wedding book and DVD today!!!  Watching that DVD gives me chills everytime.  That was the greatest day of my life and I just love reliving it.  Scott is a wonderful man and we are a couple of lucky cats!

Well, that's all for now!
