During church this morning I felt this strange tapping sensation where I thought Zoe's bum was. Nope, apparently it is her head, not her derriere, that I've been feeling at the top of my belly for the past week as Daddy and I thought! So I guess she's in breech presentation... for the moment! But the cool part is that I got to feel her have hiccups!
Five more days to the 3D sonogram. I can't wait! I'm trying hard to not think about it, so that it will come more quickly. We invited Daniel's parents to come along and our girls are coming. It's going to be fantastic and I am like a kid at Christmas right now, in anticipation of seeing her face for the first time. And I'm eager to have her gender confirmed. Call me crazy but when the tech didn't seem very sure it didn't exactly put me at ease. Though the picture I have sure does look like a girl to me.
My brother and his wife are due with their second baby together (his fifth) within 8 days, unless she goes overdue. I can't wait to meet him! They're naming him Gavin and this will be my fifth nephew. So we'll be waiting for the phone call all week long!
Elaina has an eye appointment this week. She has to have an eye exam before school. At four years old! Can you believe that? I don't understand how they do an eye exam for such a young child. Even one of the doctors I called said she was really young to be having an exam and referred me to someone else because they didn't want to check her out.
Some other things I plan on doing this week include a few house projects, mostly organizing. I feel like my house is upside down and topsy turvy! I'm ready for everything to be in its place!!!
After the sonogram I plan to finish the nursery. I've been too nervous to finish, in the slight chance the sonogram tech was wrong the first time around. It has been known to happen (happened with the aforementioned brother when his firstborn son was born! They thought he was going to be a girl and didn't even have a name or clothes for him!!!). Because this has happened to someone I know, albeit that was like 15 years ago or so, I need more confirmation.
Funny thing- the other day I was about to yell for Abby across the house and I actually yelled, "ZOE!!!" I'm already getting her name mixed up with her sisters. Ha ha!
Sometimes Elaina will mix Daniel and I up. She'll be talking to me and say, "Daddy... I mean, Mommy! Oh, whatever your name is!!!"
We all have a tendency to do the name mix-ups in this household.
Yesterday Daniel and I were talking about periods and how "fun" it'll be when all 4 of his women (me included) synchronize and are all having our special time together. I told him he'll have to make runs to the store for us for pads and chocolate and his response was, "I won't be there! I'll be GONE every month for three days!" I don't blame him. Ha ha!
