It's My Journal & I'll Blog If I Want To

So Long And Thanks For All the Fish

Ultrasound today! Woo!

Last night I dreamt that Jason and I had a pet baby dolphin, until I accidentally cooked it in the oven. I was so distraught over the death that I woke up at 4 a.m. in a cold sweat. I'd say this dream stems from 1) my deep secret fear of giving birth to a dolphin, or from 2) seeing The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy yesterday.

I was all set to go with number 2, until I basically had the same dream again, only this time, it was a turtle, and Tana from The Apprentice believed the turtle was the reincarnated form of her mom. She was REALLY MAD when I accidentally cooked her turtle mom.

So basically, I am crazy, and should not be allowed near the oven.

Anyway, my ultrasound is at 9 a.m., but then we have to go tour daycare centers and possibly bribe our way into a better slot on the waiting lists, and then I have to go renew the inspection on my car before I get another ticket and have no more money to bribe daycare centers.

So y'all will have to wait until this afternoon for The Big Babalah Genital Unveiling (provided the kid isn't all modest or something) (which is a trait it will need to get over since its mother plans to document its every bowel movement on the Internet someday), so it's time to officially Place Your Bets.

Boy, girl or dolphin?



My guess is that it will be a girl. I sure hope she isn't modest today.


Im thinking girl but a dolphin would be so cool too. Im not fond of turtles so lets hope its not that.

Ill keep a good thought that the Babalah is doing some of that karate chopping during the ultrasound so that you can see the important stuff.


I guess girl. But that's only because I think a boy PROBABLY won't be receptive to you buying him Coach bags, so it has to be a girl.. Or a dolphin.


Girl. Not a dolphin, because Jason doesn't seem to have shown any dolphin-like tendencies and that would just be unfair to him. But there are more cute baby girl clothes out there than baby boy clothes, so obviously it has to be a girl.


I just have a hard time imagining you w/ anything but a little girl right now...a very lucky little girl.


BOY!!!! (With dolphin-like tendencies):-)


So totally excited for you. I hope it's a girl. Or a boy. Whatever it is, it'll be the cutest baby ever!


I think that it's a boy. I'd like to see the shoes that you would buy for a girl though, so I'm hoping it's a girl.

Regardless of the sex, I hope you see a very healthy Babalah.


Reincarnated turtle. I would say it's either a boy or a girl.


I'm hoping for a girl...she will always have pretty clothes, hair and make-up. You definately need someone to pass all your great knowledge onto, right?



About your dreams:

To see a dolphin in your dream, symbolizes spiritual guidance, your intellect, mental attributes and emotional trust. Utilize your mind to its capacity and you will move upward in life. Alternatively, it suggests that a line of communication has been established between the conscious and unconscious aspects of yourself. Dolphins represent your willingness and ability to explore and navigate through your emotions

To see turtles in your dream, suggests that you will make slow but steady progress. You need to slow down and pace yourself. Alternatively, it indicates that you are sheltering yourself from the realities of life.

To dream that you are cooking, signifies your desire desire to influence others in such a way that they will like you or become dependent on you. Alternatively, it represents your nurturing side or wanting to be nurtured. You want to be loved.

So ummm I guess its not so bad that you are cooking your dolphins and turtles.

I'm thinking BOY, but what do I know?


I'm sticking with my earlier prediction: GIRL. (Now please don't prove me wrong - I'm 9 for 9 in my office.)


Probably a boy; my chances are good (50-50)! ; )


I say girl too, but either way, totally adorable!


I say girl. Because they are so cute to dress up, fix their hair and make fancy schmancy and you're so good at that.


Enough of this baby stuff - what did you guys think of the movie?

Best of luck with all of your endeavors this morning, particularly the part that involves the DC DMV!


Girl. With a Coach fetish.


I am leaning toward girl. :)


BOY - a true mama's boy



So you can pass on your hair product and cosmetic information to her.

It will be a boy. His name will be Flipper and he will eat nothing but strained sardines.


I say Boy! (just because nearly everyone else thinks Girl, and I like to be contrary!)

Haven't posted here in a long while, but have been reading every day! You are looking great! Many, many congrats!!

Now tell us what it is!!! Before I run out of exclamation points!!


Definitely a girl.


Boy (cause you're gaining only belly weight) and he's gonna be a swimmer (cause of the aquatic animal dreams).

I'm betting you'll have a girl.

But if you do have a boy, I hope you don't end up seeing him play with his little weiner like we did. He's had a serious facination with it ever since. (Like his father.)






I say girl. But I am ALWAYS wrong about these things.


I'm rooting for a girl because it would be more fun to buy (and decorate with) girlie stuff. The downside is if you have a girl, she may eventually want to play with your Peaches 'n Cream Barbie. (Are you prepared for this eventuality?)

If it's a boy, you're less likely to be able to braid his hair. On the plus side, he'll probably never sneak out of the house carrying one of your pretty purses.

So, I guess you're OK either way.




I predict a penis...


Girl dolphin. Or maybe a manatee.


Atleast it wasnt Where is the update? Its 2:05 already? Where are you, we are waiting? Did they have to whisk you away to sea world???


Hurry hurry! We're waiting.


i have never so obsessively refreshed someone's weblog. c'mon!


Why, exactly, am I also refreshing obsessively?


Girl Definitely. I always assumed it would be a girl.


I'm with Z & abbey!! I'm at work, I've got a ton to do, but can't help checking every five minutes. This is "edge-of-your-seat" kind of stuff!!

Hello! I'm sure you've had enough guesses
by now, but i dont think i've left you a
comment before, so this is a good day to start...i vote...boy (only because the two
most recent babies i've known to be born
have been boys, and...various things come
in threes


Flipper's a girl.

Funny that you dreamed about Tana.


You take all those "you got one in the oven?" comments pretty seriously, don't you?

Oh, and I'm busy wishing boys on everyone. Because I'm home with my (no, I'm not hyper, just busy) seven year old today and it's driving me nuts.
