Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!

I'm pretty sure it has rained, on average, every other day for the past 6 months, and I'm fully aware that we were in a drout at this time last year, but good grief, I think we're good now!

So we're off to the coast today! Everyone's excited, which means there's alot of noise at my house right now. Which is fine with me cause I'm not there! I'm stuck up at the church, trying to get the bulletin's printed before we take off! .

So the Mavs game SUCKED. But they beat the Bulls last night, so we're back on track. We had beaten the Knicks a couple of months ago by 50 points, so they felt they needed to prove a point or something I guess? I don't really blame them, but we had such amazing seats, and all we saw was defeat, up close. Oh well...

I still have the cough from hell. Going on 4 weeks now. Went to the doc and he just said take Robitussin, which is NASTY and makes me gag and I'm convinced does nothing. The massive snot production that my body is insisting on making right now isn't making the situation any better. I've been sleeping in the recliner in the living room, to spare Jeff the constant hacking. My mother in law said she had the cough for 4 weeks, so please, God, let this be the last of it.

Off to fold some bulletins, then to get a nice pre-Summer tan =)

i'm usually right

And by "usually" I mean "always." It's actually a bit ridiculous.

When I first went to the doc, I had made an educated guess as to how far along I was: approx 9 weeks. After the nurse questioned me for awhile, she determined that I was actually 11 weeks. It didn't make sense to me, but I'm not a doctor, or nurse, for that matter =) so I didn't argue. At my second trip to the doc, I just couldn't help myself, and I decided to question it, but got the same response, still due Sept 7th. OOOK, whatever y'all say!

Well guess what! Yup! I was right all along. Sonogram confirms I'm only 11 weeks, 5 days today, moving the due date to September 25.

This is totally cool with me.

Jeff coaches highschool football, and both Noah and Max will play football this fall, so this way I won't miss hardly any of their games. I really am happy about that.

It also explains why I'm still having some nauseousness (is that a word?). I was beginning to wonder why I was still feeling sick, into the second trimester (tho I felt sick when I was preggo w/ Ben for almost the first 6 months, but I'm determined that's NOT happening again (yes I'm pretending I have control over it)). And actually, as I typed that I realized I haven't felt bad all day today... I'm not gonna hold my breath, but maybe things are lookin up!

My only complaint is that now, instead of 2 weeks until we find out the sex of baby #4, it's now 4 weeks, maybe even 5 weeks away!! I know it will fly by, though, so I'll live =)

It was so fun watching baby #4 bounce around during the sonogram. He would throw his legs up in the air and just flop and roll and do whatever he wanted to! So happy! It's incredible, really. Jeff couldn't stop smiling. It's our 4th time around and it doesn't get any less cool!

In other news:

How 'bout them MAVS?! Holy cow, Cuban made the trade of a lifetime! We got rid of Howard and... I can't even remember who else, and got Brendan Haywood, Deshawn Stevenson, and Caron Butler, and are currently on a 13 game win streak!! This season wasn't lookin good, and now we could go all the way! Jeff surprised me w/ tickets to Saturday night's game, so that'll be fun! They're good ones, too =)
