So this morning I took the Intelligender test. It's a little early, I won't be ten weeks until Saturday, but I am anxious. I now know how crucial it is to wait the appropriate amount of time. I cannot figure out my results. When held up to light the test looks orange - Girl! When sitting on the counter it looks green - Boy! I've sent the company emails with pictures attached with flash on and flash off, in direct sunlight and in natural light. I've just frustrated myself and possibly wasted thirty dollars because I will more than likely buy another test to take in a week or two. I may be able to hold out until I am 15 weeks and get an ultrasound, but who knows.

My aunt Linda died on Saturday morning. It was sudden. My mom and other aunt spoke to her the night before. I had tried to call her twice, but got no answer. She had had an intestinal virus for the previous three days, other than that she was fine. She was one of the two people that I speak to on a regular basis. Her and my mom. Now just my mom. My heart aches. I want so badly to call her. To hear her say "Hey babe!" We have to go through her things. I don't want to. She is being cremated, her service is next Tuesday, the 24th of November. The day AFTER I can do Inteligender to see what kind of baby I am carrying. I never sent her videos of Mylie dancing or talking. That saddens me. I had to go buy funeral clothes today. For me and Mylie. It wasn't fun shopping. I've gotten sick from grief twice already. My sister in law called to check on me, she knew how close Linda and I were. My first thought was, I need to call Linda and tell her how thoughtful Micha is. I could literally hear her saying "How sweet" I am dreading Tuesday. I have a constant lump in my throat. I miss her terribly bad. I don't know how I am going to make it. I know I will, it just seems inconceivable at the time. I love you Linda, with terrible passion!

I had it today. No more monitoring the cysts, at least he didn't mention it. He thinks they will dissolve on their own. Butterball is taking on baby shape! It's amazing to see the difference in just two weeks! God is amazing! Just AMAZING! Heart rate was 167 bpm. Same due date. Everything looks great. Next week when I get paid I will buy Intelligender. On November 23, 2009 I will use Intelligender. I will post pictures of the results. I am anxiously awaiting the test. Will it be a Ryel or a Spencer? Dun, dun, dun...

I go back to the doctor next Thursday and have another ultrasound. I am excited to see my little butterball again. I think we may have agreed on a name. Girl = Ryel Mahlynn. Boy = Spencer Grant. There's still time to debate and change our minds, but I really like those right now. I found out today that my delivery shouldn't cost us a fortune. That is a good thing because Talise has orthodontic work that needs to be done, I need a crown and I'm not even going into Fernando's mouth. OMG! Fernando registered for CDL classes today. He takes his Compass test on Monday. he has been happier just feeling like a plan is in motion. I'm happy when he's happy. My niece is getting married! How crazy is that? It totally doesn't seem like she is old enough, but I guess she is.
