So one day I was browsing online what classes I needed to finish my degree and then I was like maybe I should just try to add them, I honestly didn't think that registration for Fall classes had even been opened up.  Well apparently they did.  And I was about a week late.  So I got most of the classes that I needed but there was one that is a pre-requisite for another 3 classes so I couldn't take any of them.  I'm going to try to add it at the beginning of the semester, and since I know the teacher and have taken 2 classes from him and see him just about every week at T-bell I'm not to scared.  I can always bride him with tacos!

There is more good news.  My major is sociology so there are NO online classes available.  However my minor is business and they pretty much offer every class online.  So instead of deferring when our lil' bebe is born I'm going to be a full time student and do online classes.  I'll be able to finish up all the classes for my minor that semester.  So thankfully I will be FINALLY graduating in April 2013.  It took me a year longer then it should have but I didn't exactly know what I wanted to do, and just took classes that I didn't need and couldn't be used in my degree audit.

So yea being able to take online classes is just such a blessing! I know it will still be hard especially with a newborn baby, but I really want to graduate as soon as possible.  It works out pretty nice because I will be home all Winter semester, and Spring I'm off track.  I'm planning on not working for at least 3 months after the peanut is born.  But Ben works during the day (as soon as he get's out of class Monday-Friday 1-6) So when I go back to work it will only be at night time.  I've been reading a lot of books and I just really want to bond with my baby.  We've also been going back and forth on whether I should get an epidural.  I've heard some positives, like your not as exhausted and it's easier for you to breastfeed and there is a quicker recovery.  And I've heard the negatives- some people say that you don't really experience the euphoria that comes after birth (In my own opinion though people who assume this may never have had a child or an epidural, because everyone I have talked to has said that they were completely coherent).  Honestly we're probably going to get an epidural because being able to nurse my bebe is SO IMPORTANT to me.  Who knows really though, we have plenty of time till D-day.

The BIG DAY is scheduled! July 22 we will be able to put a name to this little one inside of me when we find out if it's a boy or a girl.  I say girl- Ben says boy.  We bet a foot rub for whoever wins.  So everyone cross your fingers because my feet are ACHIN'.

  1. I'm so happy foryou that you figured your schooling out! I bet that is a relief! That's awesome that you can take online courses so you can stay home with your baby :) You're going to be such a great Momma! As for epidurals.. I decided LONG ago that I would never attempt to do it naturally.. I have a negative pain tolerance if that even exists lol. I can't wait to hear what you're having!! That ultrasound is the BEST because they spend extra time looking at all of the parts and explaining what everything is. SO much fun.
