Today was the big day. The day of the 20 week ultrasound (even though we’re past 20 weeks). It’s a boy! It didn’t really matter to me if it was a boy or a girl, I just wanted to find out really bad. I don’t remember if I talked about the names we picked out, but for a boy we had Noah. As of right now that’s the name, but we still have about 4 months left so I guess it’s subject to change.
Unfortunately I could not be there for the ultrasound. I had to participate in a internet news survey that was worth 10% of my final grade in communication, plus I had an economics class to go to. I don’t have any pictures to post, but I think I should be able to get some up if Celia got any more pictures.
One really interesting thing about the ultrasound is that our baby is 97% in weight! Yeah, he’s a fatty. Which is kind of funny because Celia and I are both pretty skinny. I was fat when I was a baby though. Because he is so big it is likely that he will be born a week earlier than the due date, which is February 12th. This is kind of a relief for being being as February 13th happens to lie on a Friday this year. My only car wreck happened on Friday the 13th so I believe that it is an unlucky day.
My running is going pretty good. My goal was to run 50 miles this week, but I highly doubt I’ll be able to do that. As of wednesday I had logged 24 and a half miles, but I didn’t have any time to run yesterday. During my last class of the day I decided I was going to drive back up to Northern Kentucky to go to the carenet class with Celia. After that we went to Babies R Us for a little bit and then to Fazolli’s with some of the people from the cross country team. By the time I got back to Lexington it was 9:00, and I needed to finish my homework. I’m hoping to run an 8 miler this afternoon, and tomorrow I’m going to run from the house to the horse park to watch Holy Cross run in the Lex Cath meet. I ran there last year too and it is about 9 and a half miles there. Should be fun.
