Pregnancy, Christmas et al

Well I went for my "big" ultrasound last week and cried as I left, the nurse told me nothing, didn't offer me a picture and couldn't tell the baby's gender. :( It had already started as a crappy day and that just made it worse. In general however, the pregnancy has been pretty quiet, nothing much to be excited about and we are very thankful for that. Please pray that things continue to be that way.

Christmas threatened to be a complete bust but was saved by heading to OKC to meet up with my family. I must say that I am really impressed with Embassy Suites, they have an awesome made to order omelet buffet along with just about everything else your heart could desire for breakfast, I highly recommend staying there if you ever get the chance. The heated pool and the open bar was nothing to sneeze at either :) The kids had a wonderful time and although dh had to leave to go milk and feed the animals, it was wonderful. On a side note, HG was sick all of Christmas day (I blame IHOP) but made a speedy recovery once we got home.

We changed the hose to connect the stove to the propane and there is still a leak, we are still trying to get someone out to the house but haven't had much luck. At least we know that it is the pipe and won't have to waste time trying something else.

On a financial side note, I am very thankful that our savings was able to make it to the end of the year. We will have just enough to pay the deductibles for the car and house. I will begin paying off medical bills as soon as everything finally settles down and we have a bit more to work with. I pray that that will be soon.

Merry Christmas, my friend! Sorry you were disappointed about the u/s experience.

I'll give you a 50/50 chance it's a girl. (wink)

Guess you still have a surprise be revealed in a few months!

Blessings to you and yours this coming new year.

You're too funny. :) Dh had originally wanted this baby to be a surprise so I guess he got his wish, I am not the patient type so it is far more annoying to me to have to wait. lol.

I hope you all have a very Blessed 2009 :)
