Well, Ritchie and I are totally in shock still about the fact that our sweet baby growing in there is actually a BOY! haha! We are thrilled, but amazing at how off our instincts were. Let's hope the parenting intuition gets better with time : ) Here are some pictures of our little boy!

Okay, so I decided to treat myself today after a long day at a Sacramento field trip in 100 degree weather with a new pair of shoes!! However, I went to Macy's and the rude salesperson told me that they didn't have any more in my size. No offer to call other stores, no asking if he should check in another color, nothing. But, I digress...
So, I decided to go to A Pea in the Pod and look for a pretty maternity top and pair of pants. I was the only one in the store so I got all of the attention of the lovely size 2 sales associate trying to find me the perfect pair of capri black slacks for the next 2 months of work. It was a nightmare. She was very sweet. But as my ass takes over the country and claims its own zip code and my belly forms all kinds of new "handles" (I refuse to call them love handles, because I hate them) - the more I just don't want to have a teeny tiny woman bringing me large maternity pants and cheering me on telling me, "Everyone goes through this transition time." Yeah, that's what I want to hear. Code for, "You'll be getting fatter everyday, so you shouldn't buy those, because, basically, your ass won't even fit in them in two more months." Nice.
So, in the meantime, I'll be buying LOTS of shoes. I've decided that I'll spend the remaining 5 1/2 months of pregnancy naked, in all my huge pregnant glory, with fabulous shoes on my feet!

Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I've been dying to know if it's a boy or girl in there! Kuddos to everyone who can actually wait an entire 40 weeks to find out, because I'm only 15 weeks and I'm dying here! I officially have my appointment set for April 24 (after begging to be seen sooner) to have that magical ultrasound! The countdown is on! 2 weeks and 3 days until we finally know! That is, if he/she cooperates!
On a different note, my friend Kim has lent me her doppler so we've been able to hear the heartbeat whenever we want (which as of now has been at least once a day). It's so amazing hearing the heartbeat and it's wonderful to know our little bean is growing away in there! Let's hope all of the appointments over the next few weeks continue to go well and give us good news!
Keep posted on the boy/girl update!
