Nother Sono...... It's a BIRL!! no a GOY!!

I am going crazy and this child just laughs at me!!

Went into my Dr. today. I didn't want to go in so close to the other one, but the girl told me 18 1/2 weeks is perfect timing and so she squeezed me in today.
And well, the sono tech took these pictures. These three shots of the crotch are from the behind. Not as good as a machine as the hospital, but it almost makes it easier to see if it is the one gender she thinks it is.

Looks all girl to me, but what do I know??

She could only get from the butt to take these pictures. She likes to take from behind and then get the other side to confirm it. WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL , she couldn't get the other side. The baby would not cooperate. And she kept saying, there's something over like a blob of something and I just can't get the picture.
Here guess was 80% girl. Also the baby had its legs crossed and tight and wouldn't let us get another view. Another indicator she thought for a girl.
So after we are done, I show her the two pictures I shared here from the hospital. I show her the girl one first and said, "This is when she thought I was having a girl". She goes ,"Yep, just what I saw. " And then I show her the "boy" picture and she goes. "WHOA!!!" that sure is a pecker. " LOL
She said, well they have a better machine, and that sure looks like a penis. So I don't know what to tell you. That's weird. It looks like a boy from that shot. So now I don't even know what to think. I think these pictures look like a girl, but I'm not banking on 80% and because both of them thought there was "something" on the other side. This one today just couldn't get a good picture of the other side. I've come to the conclusion that I guess I'm having a birl.
Maybe it's a goy.

It's a.................well, we don't know for sure

We went to the hospital today to check a more thorough check and see if my cervix is closed and check the baby's stats. After all the routine checking and everything she tells me........"I think it's a girl." My response, " Yeah, that is what I have thought all along." And takes this picture. Though she doesn't like it because the cord is in the way and she couldn't not get the cord in shot.

I turn to Jackson and said, well, it looks like your going to have a sister.

His response, " Nope, I'm going to have a brother." and turns back to his movie. LOL

Not two minutes later she says, well wait a minute. I knew I thought something was over there. and then procedes to say, Yep! It's a boy. She calls in the other tech and she says, it looks like something is there. For about twenty minutes she looks and looks, let's me go to the bathroom and comes back and says, Yep it's a boy. So I tell her then I need a boy pic. If I'm having a boy, you took a girl shot, and I need a boy one, so she snaps this one.

We left the hospital and I was all sorts of confused. I was starting to think boy and go with it, and after sharing pictures with a few people, I concluded that it was a boy. Tho, I'm still not convinced. I will be going in for another check with my Dr.

Mickey's Trick or Treat

What a fun time we had. This is usually a past tradition that we have shared with Jack and his family. We were sad that they weren't with us this year, it just wasn't the same. I still tried to carry on the tradition, just me and the boy, since daddy had class. I'm glad that someone else wanted to go there. Here's some shots of our night. Oh, BTW, I'm Trixie. J's speed racer. Get it??? Not many people asked me, but I know they were wondering.

Yes, chocolate frosty already on his costume even before Trick or treating started.

The cool moms dress up with their kids. Uh, or, maybe we are the mom's that don't want to grow up??

Having a little tooo much fun. At almost 18 weeks pregnant, it's not good to dance around like that doing the chicken dance FYI. I got a little light headed afterwards.

Rice Krispy Makin Time!

I've been told that I'm the BEST rice krispy maker in the world. Well, I was, until I met my husband. Now, either they taste better went you don't have to make them, or he really does do something better than me. (shhh! don't tell him, he hardly ever comes here and so it'll be awhile until he knows.) Anyway, me and J made some today since I've been craving them oh so badly!! and just in case you don't know how to make these, or have forgotten, here's the way, not quite like" the pioneer woman", but pretty darn close. LOL

First you start with poppin a marshmellow in your mouth, just to get you in the mood:

Then you measure your marshmellows out. (4 cups of the miniature ones) and add it to your butter.

As the marshmellows and butter are in the bowl, get your cereal ready.

Once the marshmellows start to melt, you start measuring your cereal.

Add when your marshmellows look like this

That's when I add my cereal.

Mix it all up

and since these bad boys aren't going to be around long, no need to dirty a pan, just use some good ole' wax paper.

First you lick the spatula, don't want those to go to waste!!

Then you cut the squares up (or just pull them apart and spare another dirty dish-a mom's dream) and enjoy!

That's how you make some yummilicous rice krispy treats!!

And please, I know it's October and my son is in a fourth of july shirt with non matching orange shorts, but hey, he dressed himself and we have nowhere to go for the next few hours, so I'm gonna let it be.
