17 weeks and counting!

I just came from the doctor's office and thought I would give everyone an update. We are a little farther along than we thought. We are 17 weeks! Woohoo!! The doctor did a sonogram and everything looks great. It was wonderful to get to see the little tiger! I am so excited!!! Our approx. due date is Feb. 18th. Pray for Matt, he just lost a month of the time he thought he had to finish the basement! I get to go back in a month for another sonogram and we will hopefully find out for sure what we are having. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers!

"If you want to make God laugh, just tell him your future plans." Woody Allen

The title of this post is Matt's quote of the week and perhaps even the year. We have had quite a surprise this week. As I have been assured by the doctor's office, three urine tests do not lie. We seem to be pregnant! We are still trying to move out of the shocked stage. We just keep looking at each other and saying "Wow"! My husband demanded that I get a blood test to be sure. The doctor's office said "Hey, if you want to get stuck we will order the test". I explained that our children are 13 and 10 and this was not expected. They laughed! We are still waiting for the results and until then I don't think my husband is going to believe it.
I have an appointment next Friday to find out just how far along I am and to make sure everything is going smoothly. I must admit that I am nervous. I just want everything to be okay so I am looking forward to my appointment. Until then I will be holding my breath.
The kids thought we were joking when we told them and then Jake realized we did not have enough rooms. When we explained that we would be finishing the basement and putting a bedroom down there Jake was more concerned with who was getting the new room than with being a big brother. LOL!

I will give everyone an update when we know more!
