Sorry for the lack of noise, folks, but I was out of town and without particularly good interwebs over the weekend. I did, however, have an abundance of family and barbeque, which more than made up for it! We even got to spend some time with my brother and his girlfriend, which is a rare treat.
Today I am officially 3 months and 1 day preggers. If I'm not mistaken, that means I'm solidly into my second trimester. I'm waiting not so patiently for that second trimester energy boost. I was hoping it would kick in yesterday, but no. So far, not today either. I'm not exactly holding my breath for this afternoon (or this week, or this month) but a girl can dream, right?
Speaking of MicroTot, we have a date for our big "advanced maternal age" anatomy scan (i.e. gender discovery). August 16 we will hopefully be able to start using gender specific pronouns. This one isn't going to be like the last one. Last time we had a slightly more detailed ultrasound in Dr. T's office to which we invited both grandmothers and lasted about 10-15 minutes. This time we'll be seeing the high risk doc, Dr. Perry, for approximately an hour, get some genetic disorder counseling before the pictures, and if they see anything alarming we'll have to have more counseling after. I'm not anticipating anything alarming, I'm just saying we'll be there a while. As Kaycie is a little freaked out by the ultrasound room, we've already made arrangements for my mom to come visit that day and hang at home with her while we go get the news. We have one more visit with Dr. T before then, at the end of July, but it should be routine. Unless they throw in another surprise ultrasound like they did last time. Apparently on the first u/s they saw a cyst of some sort and needed to take another look, but it was fine.
I'm pretty sure my little mischief maker has crawled up into her rocker and is reading herself books, based on the rhythmic thumping sound coming from her room. I adore my kid, by the way. She had an awesome time with all her family this weekend. Sunday my mom took her to church by herself, since I was feeling kinda yucky and didn't think I was up to going. Apparently Kaycie didn't sit with Mom during church. She sat in the pew behind Mom with another family who thinks she's the bee's knees and played quietly with their (somewhat older) kids the whole time. She's just the best thing ever.
It's 10:30am. I guess I should go put pants on.
My new couch that arrived with a rip in the cushion is still here. Furniture people should be picking it up tomorrow. Maybe. That was the last I heard when I talked to them last week, but I haven't heard back from them with an actual time. I may be calling them again this afternoon. They've been very nice, if not exactly on the ball, about the whole thing. But I'm starting to get a little frustrated. I'm trying to keep this one clean until they come get it, and I have a toddler and a pup...
