I have many many things to post relating to Nolan's birthday and a late Halloween party. . . And I might get to those things, eventually. If I can stop throwing up long enough to be productive for longer than an hour. An hour which is inevitably filled with something like stupid WORK, and not blogging.. .
BUT, I had to return to post some news.
Yesterday, November 10th, we had a gender ultrasound for this newest Hess baby. . . Mostly because mama couldn't take it any more and needed SOMETHING to get her through the next 22 weeks of pregnant "bliss" (this little one will be born via c-section about a week early, so I AM counting my blessings that I'll be pregnant 2 weeks LESS than I was with Nolan. That's something, right?)
Anyway, the point is.. .
IT'S A GIRL!!
And I have to admit, I'm thrilled! I have been secretly (or not so secretly) hoping that this one was a girl for weeks not. It makes me feel a little bit better about how much WORSE this pregnancy is than the last. . .
And now I can start nesting and planning and filling my brain up with how the heck we're going to fit another being and her things into our already crowded space without killing each other. And it's totally possible. I just need a few more of those non-puking productive hours each day. . . LUCKILY, we have a room already painted a beautiful shade of red that we will use for this new little one. We'll have a little touching up to do, but no real PAINTING (Hooray!) Just some decorating and shifting and storing. . . And I'm a little bit excited about that part!
Wish us luck!
