Zero

Zero days (I'm not counting today or Monday) until we find out if baby is a boy or girl! I sound like that little girl from the Hallmark commercial with the "countdown to Christmas" ornament :)

I have to tell you about something so sweet. Last night I checked the mailbox and in it was a baby card from my friend Lauren. She sent us a Babies R Us gift card  to go buy something after the OB appointment tomorrow. The message inside was so special, too. I first met Lauren in Hawaii a few years ago. I met her in the NEX (which is a store that's a Navy exchange. It's basically a giant department store but you have to have military ID to get in). I remember roaming the baby aisles at the NEX wishing that I had a cute little baby girl or boy to shop for. Anyways, the day that  I met her she had just left an OB appointment where she had found out she was having a baby girl! That baby girl is now three and a half and has a baby brother :) Lauren has been one of my biggest supporters through this whole infertility nightmare journey. And it all feels like it coming full circle :) I may not have a boat load of close friends, but the few I do have are most definitely irreplaceable...

ps-You know in my last post where I said I had a dream I was having a girl? Well, last night I had a very vivid dream that we had a boy...and he had blonde hair and hazel eyes!
