To find out or not to find out…

Around 17 weeks pregnant in this photo, Sara says she feels like she already has "popped."

On Thursday, Josh and I will be going to the ultrasound where we could find out the gender of the baby. From the beginning, we have both been pretty set on not finding out. Now that the time is finally here, it does get a little more challenging. 

Truthfully, I don’t think either one of us care what it is. We both understand what a huge blessing just having a healthy baby is. Josh recently bought an old Smothers Brothers record on Ebay so I think he secretely is hoping for another little fella. I guess it beats him buying any more Superman figures for himself like he used to 😉

Jackson was a pretty lucky little man this past weekend. He got to see both sets of grandparents. On Friday, the two of us headed back to Harlan to help celebrate my mom’s and dad’s birthday. Unfortunately, Josh was stuck at work (what’s new) and didn’t get to join us. It was fun spending time with them, watching a couple of my nephews’ soccer games, hitting the casino, and eating plenty of mom’s homemade food. Josh’s parents and brother, Tyler, spent the day at our home in Des Moines on Sunday. They just can’t go more than a week or two without seeing us … I mean Jackson.

In case you didn’t know, I coach sixth, seventh and eighth grade volleyball at Brody Middle School where I teach. We had our second match of the season tonight and I think that both Eric, the other coach, and I are mentally drained from the 100+ girls to keep track of. On the positive side, I think this is the nicest group of girls we have had over the past four years. Jackson got to attend his first match of the season, and from what I hear he made some friends in the stands and enjoyed playing ball with his Daddy afterward.

Second volleyball match down and an ever-growing belly. This pregnancy is going so fast.
