Weekend Report

So, it's 5:30 in the morning, and I'm blogging to keep myself from wanting to throw up. True story.

Anyway, it was definitely time for an update. There are lots of big things happening in the Borges' household right now.

I had another appointment with the midwives last week. Everything looks good. The midwife could hear Baby Jo(e)'s heartbeat, but Steve and I weren't able to, so she did another early ultrasound. It's so weird to me to be able to look at that fetus on the screen and know it's growing inside me. I ate (drank?) a slurpee right before my appointment so, Baby Jo(e) was pretty active. I'll have to remember that for next time when we get to find out the gender (sex? I never know which term is PC anymore). My weight gain has also slowed, which is a relief, and I ended up gaining about 7 pounds in my first trimester. Not too shabby. Oh, and yes, I added a creepy fetus widget to my sidebar. It seemed like the easiest way to track how many days without making a paper chain. Although I still might make a paper chain.

The other big news is that we're getting a house. Hooray! It's an adorable split entry in Taylorsville, in the neighborhood that a lot of my friends grew up in. We move in sometime in mid-August. The whole house has been completely remodeled, so we won't have to do a single thing to it. The yard, on the other hand, is going to need some work. There about 5 or 6 fruit trees between the front and back yard (and I don't do fruit trees). So, all of those are going to have to come out over the next little while. But, it's got space out back for a little garden, and maybe a dog somewhere down the road. I've already started shopping for blinds (it has a TON of windows!), a fridge (kind of necessary), a big comfy couch for the basement, and maybe a piano. I'm thinking the vacation we were going to take this fall is actually going to be spent moving and the money spent purchasing house stuff.
So, it's looking like August is going to be a pretty busy month for us: our 2nd anniversary on the 5th, Curious George's birthday on the 11th, moving sometime between the 9th and 15th, and The Big Ultrasound on the 18th.

Sheesh... can the blog keep up?

Congrats on the house! Where in Taylorsville?
Also, the most PC word for your purposes is "sex". These days people use "gender" to refer to the emotional side of things, not so much the physical. :)

Sounds like you have a lot of awesome changes coming up.

Congratulations on all your new adventures!! I'm so happy for you and George! If you are thinking about an upright piano... I know where you could get one- me! Let me know if you want a look/play on it.

Congrats on the house. :) I'm looking forward to taking that plunge...someday.
And score on the whole newly-remodeled part. Moving is stressful enough as it is, it will be so nice to just move in and be able to enjoy it.

So, did it work? Do you still want to throw up?

Also, I think I might know what house you are moving into. Is the room above the garage divided into a couple bedrooms and a bathroom?

Congrats! You still should do the chain at least at the end its slot of fun, until it goes past the due date loop then it just sucks all around
