Tomorrow is the Big Day

I can hardly believe that tomorrow we will hopefully be finding out the answer to the boy or girl question. It seems that most of you are guessing girl, and I cannot say that I'm guessing any differently. This pregnancy just seems too much like the last one for me to think otherwise. Well unless you count the whole "spontaneous" thing as opposed to the RE's office thing as different. Jeramy is so adamant that we're having another girl that he has been referring to baby #2 as Jillian's little sister since the test came back positive. I can't say that I would mind since I have fond memories of having a little sister close in age despite the fact that we spent most of the time arguing and punching each other. A boy would be great to, since then we'd have one of each. Either way, I don't think we can go wrong gender wise.

This pregnancy really has flown by in comparison to the last. My day consists of work, chasing Jillian around, and then a precious hour or two of relaxation with Jeramy after she goes to bed. Weekends are more of the same. I love it, but it is busy. I lack the luxury of sitting around and contemplating the wonder that is this pregnancy unlike last time. In a way I almost feel a little guilty that being pregnant at times feels like more of an afterthought rather than my constant focus. But really I think it is more of a function of being busier. It is feeling more and more real though, probably because I have really began feeling movement. I felt flutters earlier this time around since I knew what I was looking for, but the real distinct movements did not begin until a week ago.

Now that Jillian is sleeping like a champ, I have been knitting more in the evenings since I know this will all come to an end again in a few short months. I finished Jillian's Helena sweater. It is a little big (although it is supposed to be long), but I think it should fit well by the spring.


And a sock! I'm now knitting the matching sock. And if I finish that sock it will be the first complete pair I've ever made.

CUTE!!! That sweater is just frickin' adorable.

I think I guessed boy for you, right? Just to be contrary? It seems like EVERYONE I know these days is having the same gender as their previous child. Wait, never mind, I can think of three exceptions to that off the top of my head. DANG! They just need to figure out how to indicate the sex of the baby on those little windows in a HPT. :)

I am also going to go against the grain & guess boy- just because! Either way- you will definitely have a handfull!

I am so jealous of that sweater- it's adorable! I need to get through this scarf I am making & then I can learn to make things like sweaters & such. Socks are a complete mystery still- but hopefully someday I'll figure those out too!

Wow, just look at those lovely knit creations! Great job.

I can totally imagine that things are different in a 2nd pregnancy, especially with a little one running around...I'm glad it's flying by!

GOOD LUCK TODAY - Can't wait to hear the verdict!!!

Glad the pregnancy is going smoothly and quickly! Can't wait to hear the big news. (I guessed boy.)

I guessed boy...now I'm anxious to know the answer. I'm on the same page with the 2nd pregnancy thing. I know with my first I was thinking about it all the time...now I don't have time to think about it always. I feel guilty too.

I find out next week. :)
