Is it Thursday yet?

I go in to have an ultrasound on Thursday to find out the gender of our babe. Oh and to make sure it's healthy and all that. I'm very excited. I mean, who wouldn't be excited to lay on a table and watch a little tv and see inside their body?? If my husband had that opportunity, I'm sure he'd jump on it. I did make the mistake one time of asking what that "big white spot" was and when she told me, frankly, I felt a little embarrassed that anyone had to see that. But back to baby-watching. I think it's so amazing and thrilling to see a baby on an ultrasound. I wish that there were at-home ultrasound machines. They have dopplars that can be rented or purchased...why not make the u/s machines available for all? Instead of wondering or reading about how big this baby may be, I want to see it each week...uh...day. Instead of being hooked on Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy, I'd be hooked on baby-watching.

Anyone who has known me for over a year, knows the horror of house remodeling that we've been going through. My dad has been coming to help for the past 3 weekends. We have to do a bit more mudding and then we can finish painting and start (and finish) some decision making on cabinets and flooring. My dad told us that the first weekend he came, we looked "lost". Uh, good word. He then said he felt sorry for us. lol Yeah, we are a bit pathetic... But soon, soon this will all be behind us and we will say "remember when..." and smile at the memories of how badly we wanted to torch this place....

I can't wait to find out what you're having! Best of luck at the u/s. I love them too. Maybe Bon could go all "Tom Cruise" and buy an u/s machine to keep at home.
