Just saw you had a PTR, so thought I'd join in!

Wow, your family has been through a lot. I hope everything goes well for you in the pregnancy and that bringing your new little addition to WDW is magical!

I have to show DH all your "geek" stuff! He'll love it!

Ultrasound update

So I went for my ultrasound last week. It was slightly unnerving at first. The technician said "Is this your second ultrasound?"
No, my first.
"Why have you not had one before now?"
Well this is the one the doctor scheduled for me.
"And this baby is how old?"
Well, that's why I am here for the dating ultrasound. I wasn't really paying that much attention this time around. I've been distracted by stuff lately.
"I see. Well, this baby is a lot older than your doctor had suggested."
Okay...
"I'm going to do a write up, take this to your doctor and make sure you speak to her before you leave the hospital today."
Right.

I was so distracted with worry that I never even asked to see the little one. I will have to wait until next time.

So I went and waited for my doctor. Turns out the baby is actually 15 weeks and three days today. So due October 27th. And it also turns out that we scootched to the head of the line for the amnio we were supposed to have. It's booked for this Thursday and I am feeling a bit nervous about it. So if you could include us in your prayers for a healthy little mouseketeer I'd really appreciate it!

Happy Mother's Day!

To all my DIS friends out there who are mums - hope you had a wonderful day today!

We finally told our kids and they were both over the moon! My son is so excited to have a little brother to play with and my daughter is just thrilled to have a real live baby to take care of. We are doing a little baby countdown now (166 days) and they keep coming up to me with wrapped presents of toys they want to give to the baby, as well as birthday cards and mobiles they have made. We spent the weekend planning the nursery and trying to think up names for the young man. I think we are going to call him "Boo" until we finally decide.

Today we went to our parent's house - my father-in-law seemed really pleased that Boo would be born so close to his wife's birthday, I hope it helped him and my husband on their first mother's day without her to have something to look forward to.

My daughter called my niece Friday night and told her and she and my sister brought Boo his first outfit today! The most adorable little five piece monkey set from Carter's. My mum and dad were equally pleased (I was worried about my mum's reaction as she is so sick) so that was lovely too. Anyway, a great weekend all round, filled with lots of love. Hope yours was just as great!

Yesterday I bit the bullet and went to Thyme maternity and bought some capri pants. You know it's time when you can't even get the button's done up on any of your regular pants.

I also ordered a copy of the Oxford Dictionary of First Names. It's time we stopped calling this boy Boo.

We've been planning our first Disney movie nights (my niece will be coming for some of them too). I think we are going to do Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs first (also my favourite of course) with make your own caramel apples and mine a neclace of gems. We are going to do our first one in June so I'll have some fun photos of that soon!

Oh, and I found the cute disneybaby.com site

163 days until baby / 461 days until disney! So excited for both!
