After much deliberation and skepticism regarding the likelihood of us buying a home before the baby arrives, we have been given the opportunity to do just that. Let me first say that I'm an emotional pregnant lady to the max. Gary says he's never seen me laugh or cry this much since we met. Anyway, we looked online at a few homes and I absolutely fell in love with an incredible one in the Hixson area that we could actually afford. It has been on the market for one week. Upon speaking with our realtor today and scheduling a time with her to look at this coming Tuesday, I received word from her with an hour that it has already been bid on and is now listed as pending. I knew it was a GREAT deal and that it was probably too good to be true but good grief! I've been bummed since I found out. I know that we have plenty of time really to find a home. (We weren't planning to move until May anyway.) And I know that we will not be homeless or even put into a horrible situation. BUT, I can't express the actual loss I feel about this home. Call me silly, but I envisioned our cute little family there in mere months and I'm nearly inconsolable at this point. This big baby will be fine in a couple of days, but for now, I'm mopey.
In other news, baby and I are quite well. My family tells me on a nearly daily basis that the child will have a lot of hair because the indigestion is my only real negative feeling. I assume it's an old wives tale. We are going to the doctor again this week and I am excited to hear the heartbeat for the first time. The visit after this will tell us the sex, though we both have a hunch already. I can't wait until Friday!
Much love and many blessings,
