Shane and i are so excited to be having a cute little boy. i have had that "FEELING" that it was a boy this entire time and so i was not super shocked! I know that Shane has been super nervous with the fact of raising a girl since he is from a family of 5 boys so i know he was so excited to get a boy first, but next i know we are both hoping for a girl. On my side of that family we have a boy, girl, boy, girl, boy pattern and my oldest brother and sister have kept the pattern with their kids. My brother has boy, Girl, Boy and my sister has boy girl boy and is expecting a girl. i only hope that i can stick with the every other pattern as well! it is so much fun knowing what i am having now! soooo much to do! Shane is pumped to have a baby room decked out in Sports stuff, and so am i..i guess? haha When the doctor turned on the ultrasound at my Monday appointment, i said "boy" before he could even say a word! there was no denying the shot i saw. haha Shane must be so proud! I feel like i am getting more and more excited especially because i am now feeling better! I was pretty sick and nauseous all the time the first few months but that is all gone! now i am just super tired and sometimes a little emotional (according to Shane) hehe.
Let the baby nursery decorating begin! We a sticking with something simple since we are on a tight budget but it is sure fun to look at all these cute nursery's online for some ideas! Shane likes to talk to the baby and tell him all about soccer and his favorite soccer players. he thinks that it will make the baby a better person! hmmm...i am not sure about that one. i havent felt mini shane kick yet but i cant wait. its been easier to work out more since i am not so nauceous so that is nice, but i did find out that i have Interstitial Cystitis. This is something i guess i have always had but since being pregnant it is way worse! anyone that knows me super well knows that i pee all the time!!! it is the worst! since being pregnant tho it has magnified soooo much! ugh. There is a huge long list of foods that i am supposed to avoid to make it easier.This interstitial Cystitis says i should avoid..

Oh and then lets add on my other allergies. hmm...the list makes me dizzy so i just do my best and just eat a good balanced diet. i hate talking about it because i dont want people to not invite us to eat or worry about me. i try to just show up to places and eat what i can and not eat so much of the things i shouldnt. i feel like i will lose friends if they knew how many wierd allergies i have!! WHO would invite us to dinner!?!?! haha so friends please ignore this post. i will eat anything or just pick through what i cant have! Dairy i cant ever have! it gives me mega migraines but i can pick through the rest!
