Still no gender

This kid, I swear, does not want us to know what it is! We have another appointment in 3 weeks, and will probably take another look... but until then, it's still a crap-shoot. Those of you who have had children will understand my request- don't ask what I'm having! If I find out, I will let you know... if I don't- you'll have to wait like the rest of us until the kid pops out! So please- be a dear and don't ask baby questions. At this point I am tempted to make a t-shirt, or maybe one for each day of the week, explaining everything about the child in my womb.
Due date: August 25, 2007
Gender: Unknown
Reason: Not cause we don't want to know- just cause we've tried three times and the kid won't cooperate
Birthplan: Will try natural this time
Reason: Every time I get an epidural, my labor stops and I have to be put on pitosin
Planned place of birth: Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, unless the small one decides to come soon, in which case it may be a Lily Lake baby
Names picked out: I don't know... Cam kind of took one idea... so we're rethinking... and we never can agree on one
Child #: 3
Time between Brensyn and this one: will be 18 months- yes it's close, but we didn't exactly plan it
"You are going to have your hands full:" response- yeah I'm not stupid- I already have my hands full, and guess what? I'm sure it will get worse- don't say the obvious- it just pisses people off!
Other than that- it's not important enough to warrant a question! Thanks- and have a nice day!
PS- Can you tell I've had one of those days?

Well, we finally got the internet today. After ONE WHOLE YEAR almost to the day, I can finally check my email from home, and pay our bills without having to bum off of someone's home computer, or take the laptop to some motel and hack into their wireless. I guess this is a mixed blessing, cause now I don't have an excuse when I forget to reply to a message. Now if I can only find my digital camera, I can share pictures online with people... although I don't know if I'll ever be able to find it. Brensyn likes to throw things in the garbage, and sometimes does it with objects other than diapers and trash. We thought we had him trained, but I often find foreign things in there and wonder where he even found them. McKie threw my glasses away over a year ago when we lived in town, and now I fear the camera, and pictures on the card inside (incluidng Brensyn's first birthday) are lost forever. I will update again in a few days. Our next Dr. appointment for the baby is on Thursday, and if they have time, they said they'd check again to see if they can determine a sex... so everyone cross your fingers for us! Later!

So, today marked our second ultra-sound, and the little fart just didn't think that we should know what sex it is. Both times the people doing it said that they would guess a girl, but mostly because there were no dangling things to be seen. The first US we had, the baby decided to pinch it's legs together, and this time, the ambilical cord was right between the legs- blocking that critical spot. The Doc this time told us she wouldn't bet her house on it, but she'd say a girl. So I decided that I'm going to get some girl stuff. They said that they could look again next month if I wanted them to, which of course I will, but this is starting to get a bit frustrating. If you are reading this blog- please don't ask me if I know what I'm having yet, or when I'll find out. My next appointment is on the 31st of this month, so after that, there will be another blog. Don't bug me until then. I'm due August 25th... so about 3 1/2 months yet to go. I can't wait to find out- but I'm starting to think that will never happen. Better to be prepared I suppose!
