It's a......

The Doctor says everything looks great! The baby is really healthy and he has all his parts and they are in the right places. I am currently 22 weeks but the baby is measuring at 24 weeks. I have been thinking the whole time that I was a little bit further along. I also think he is just going to be a big boy! It was really neat to see him moving around and swallowing. Both the Doctor and technician said he was very photogenic and cooperative, they were able to get the shots they needed really easily. I might as well answer the question I know I will be getting.... "Do you have a name?" We do have names in mind but we will not set a name for sure until he is born. We are very exited!!!

The Answer is NO!

So I have been getting two questions a lot so I thought I would answer to all......

Question #1 "What are you having?"

WE DON'T KNOW! We were supposed to go last week but they could not get us in. Then I was scheduled this week on the availability I had given for the previous week. They scheduled me for yesterday but Ryan and I had a kayaking trip planed with the guys from work. Next Monday we are going for sure. So I haven't holing out on you I don't know either!

Question #2 "Is your house done?" or "How is everything going with your house?"

NO, NO, NO and TERRIBLE! So here is the short version of the story. We hired a guy back in May to do some work on our house. He had been working really slow so Ryan had to light many fires under is bum. So Ryan had just gotten after him and he was working. Until.... he was put in jail! This is not a joke!!!! He does not even have a court day set he will probably be there for a while! So what do you do when the guy you have working on your house is thrown in jail? CRY! Yes, I  had my very own pity party but know it is time to move on. Lately I have been feeling like I want to nest. This is very common for a pregnant women.  I think this has all been a little harder for me because I don't have a nest. It is really hard to not know where we will be when we have the baby. Our plan was to rent out the house and live somewhere else and this would all be done before the baby came. Now we don't know. So for those of you who feel sorry for me and would like to help please make checks payable to the Brittany Needs a Nest Fund.....
Just kidding.

Now for some better news. My sister Brennan is coming home tomorrow! She has been living in China for the past year working at The Venetian as a Gondolier. We have missed her and can't wait to see her!

Next week Ryan and I go in for our first ultrasound. I have some people that say I am having a boy and others say girl. I thought it would be fun to hear everyones guesses. My little brother Alan wants me to have a girl for Ivy but thinks I am having a boy. I thought that was interesting.

People ask what I am craving/can't stand to help their guess. Well sorry I am not craving  anything in particular. I really feel pretty normal. 
So make your guess.... BOY or GIRL
