Sonogram date and random cravings

I went to the doctor on Thursday for a checkup. Everything is still looking good. I got to hear the heartbeat again. I love hearing that beautiful sound. It assures me that all is well in baby land! The most exciting part of my doctors appointment was that we set a date for the sonogram! It will be on April 16th. Less than 4 weeks and we will (hopefully) know if we're having a boy or girl! I literally cannot wait! I am incredibly excited and curious.

I'm still doing really well. I feel so blessed to have had such an easy pregnancy so far. Hopefully this doesn't mean I'll have an awful labor to make up for it! Haha. I have had some interesting cravings. For a while it was french fries. I'm over that now. Then it was salad. I had to have a side salad with just about every one of my meals. I wish that one had lasted a little longer, but sadly I seem to be over it too. Lately I have really been craving gyros. It's so random.

Friday night I was really wanting a gyro, and David and I were going to hang out with my mom since my dad and brothers were out hunting. So we decided to go eat at a little deli that has good gyros about 15 minutes from my parents house. There is a gyro place about 5 minutes from their house that we could have gone to, but I prefer the other one, so we went there. When we got there, I walked right up to the counter and said I wanted a gyro. The man taking our order proceeded to tell me they were out of gyros!! WHAT?! This is going to sound crazy, but I literally felt tears spring to my eyes. Thankfully, I managed to control them and not burst into tears in the middle of the restaurant.

I ended up ordering a hamburger, but after a few bites, I decided it just wouldn't do. My incredibly sweet husband offered to eat my hamburger for me and take me to the other gyro place on the way home. So I watched my mom and David eat, and then I got my gyro! It was wonderful and worth holding out for! So it all worked out. David got VERY full, and I satisfied my gyro craving. For a short time at least.

I asked David what he would have done if I had burst into tears in the restaurant. Needless to say, he would have been very embarrassed, and I would have been MORTIFIED. He said he probably would have taken me to the car and gone back in to explain that it really wasn't that big of a deal that they were out of gyros. Just those darn pregnancy hormones. Gotta love them.

OMG! He would have taken you to the car like a little child. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!! OK. Y'all are coming to eat tonight and we're having hamburgers. Should I freeze the beef and go out and kill a lamb and make gyros instead?????

Not like a little child. Like a grown woman who is sobbing in a deli. We couldn't just stand there.

Wait till we get there to kill the lamb. We can have a late Passover Dinner. We'll bring the matzo.
