In the most recent news…yesterday we found out we are having a BOY!! Elijah Paul Fatheree is 14oz and 9 inches long at 20 weeks gestation (halfway). Most people are aware that I was rooting for a girl…I hope Elijah will not hold this against me. Fatheree’s men to not give out their X chromosome very easily and most babies are born male so the odds were against me. I think my fear of never having a girl drove me to want one…but now I am glad just to know. I am glad I can call him by name and not IT. Even though last night I would say “it” out of habit and Timmy would correct me. Timmy is excited. He is says he will be more comfortable with a boy.
We have our nephews, Ty and Gavin, who will be 2-1/2 and almost 1 when Elijah is born….so it will be fun and wild times I am sure. I get more excited every day. I haven’t felt just a ton of movement but I know he is moving because we saw it on the ultrasound. The doc says to give it a few more weeks and it’ll never stop. I did feel what I believe to be a kick one day last week. I bent over and squashed him I guess and I felt like this poke from the inside as if he was saying, “Hey! There is someone in here!” He has already given all his girl clothes that were bought for him to his girlfriend Macey Ann Chapman. So now it is all sports and boy clothes!! I have heard numerous times how much little boys love their mommy’s so I am pretty happy!!

Today was my last day of work at Omega Ob/Gyn. It is a very bittersweet time because I enjoy my job and work with really wonderful people. But when I found out I got knocked up during the end of Nursing School I decided for the last semester I would focus on school and being pregnant. I will miss Omega (especially the sweet people) but I am excited to have this opportunity. Following graduation there is an extremely long and hard test I have to take (NCLEX) and I will be working towards preparing for that as well. As a going away gift I got a SONOGRAM today and got some really precious pictures.
The pregnancy is still going very well! I am 13 weeks today and every time I see the little peanut it is moving around like crazy. We are getting more and more excited each day about the baby. Especially when I see other little babies….I can’t explain it. I just want to reach out and GRAB them!
On a side note I would like to say how grateful and fortunate I am to have such an amazing husband. He is working so hard to make all this possible for me and inspires me to be better each and every day. He is the best person I know, my baby daddy, and waking up to him every day is one of my favorite things in life.
