Too good to be true...

So apparently one can't have an awesome first trimester like I had. If so, it will just come back to haunt you, like it did to me Saturday. In 3 hours I had thrown up more times than I had my entire first few months of pregnancy... and it conveniently happened on the day my husband was away for military duty. Don't worry, it continued long enough for him to have to come home and take care of me until 3 am and make 3 trips to the grocery store for saimin, gatorade and a thermometer. :) Who knows whether it was a nasty bug or what, but thank goodness it is over!!

On a happier note, we have scheduled the ultrasound to find out the gender of the baby!! I am hoping for a girl, Vaka obviously wants a boy. If Heavenly Father really loves me he will bless me with a girl as I'm not sure I'm ready to deal with two Vaka's on my own, and I also don't want a son named "Butch"!! (Vaka's #1 choice for a boy name) Cast your votes over the next 3 1/2 weeks. The winner will get... the satisfaction of winning!! :)

I'm gonna say GIRL! Because, 1) I know Heavenly Father loves you! :) and 2) we need another girl in the family! What is up with Makea being the ONLY great-granddaughter out of 6 so far???!!

Dang it! I don't know!!! I'll be the devil's advocate and say a boy... (but seriously... Butch?) Maybe you guys should get a dog before you have baby, so you can name him Butch... :) Oh, ps: Vaka you really don't look gay, I was kidding. :)

Twins- boy and girl! Haha, ok, maybe not. For the sake of the name Butch I am definitely voting it's a girl... but I'm a little afraid to hear the girl name equivalent.

hahaha. I think i have an answer to the BUTCH problem. Brooke. Show this website to Vaka and you'll have 30 REALLY GOOD reasons not to name your son (or daugher) Butch: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=butch
