A little late

Ok, Im sorry that I haven't written as much as I would have liked in the last 2 months.  DH and I have had a crazy time.

I dont know if I've mentioned this before, but I have a handicapped little sister.  When I say little I really mean that she is younger than me so I will always consider her little but in reality she is 21 years old, almost as tall as I am, and about 100lbs.  So not really little at all, but still.  Well, my parents are getting older so DH and I moved her in with us.  This was no small task as it required DH and his friend to finish my basement which has taken a long time and Im still finding construction related dust all over my house.  Anyway, that is the short version of why I've been so busy lately.

On October 11th DH and I went for our 20 week ultrasound (it was this time during our last pregnancy that we found out our Bristol had problems).  When the ultrasound tech said that the baby's cerebellum looked normal we started to cry.  And as the measurements came in and the baby was measuring at 20 weeks I cried even more.  And when she said that the umbilical cord was normal I cried even more.  I was carrying a healthy baby that was on the bigger side measuring in the 87% category.  It was measuring at 13oz's at 20 wks when Bristol was born at 26 wks she only weighed 14.8 oz's.  I was so happy.  However, I was completely unprepared for what she said next..."You are having a BOY."  I'm still trying to wrap my head around that...a BOY???  I dont know what to do with a boy.  I am not trying to sound ungrateful, the sex of the baby doesnt matter one bit to me, but I have no clue what to do with a boy.  I mean Im a girl and I've been helping to care for my little sister for the last 21 years.  I dont have a clue what to do with a boy!!!  My friend told me that it's going to pee all over...

It was funny, the NP that we met with told us not to worry about the 87% and before she could finish her statement DH and I were fearing that 87% was bad...but then she was talking about the pain of giving birth to a large baby.  If thats my biggest concern with this pregnancy I will be the luckiest woman in the world.  I had a dream the other night that I was chasing a large baby around the house and I couldnt find a diaper that would fit him and thus he kept peeing all over everything.  I woke up laughing...

Our next appointment is on November 8th....
