January Visit

Nothing new has happened here in the last couple of days. My most exciting activity has been seeing how many fruit flies I can catch in my bowl of vinegar. Exciting I know. They get pretty bad at times because of all the fruit trees we have in our neighborhood.

Otherwise I have been trying to plan the date and length of my visit in January. I am getting very excited to come home and see everyone. This visit may be a little harder to see everyone because I can't drive during my pregnancy. But I am sure everything will work out and plus I get to see everyone at least once at my baby showers.

I have been scrapbooking a little. It is nice to be doing that again.

We should have done more yard work this weekend because the weather was so nice. It was in the 70's one day.

8 more days until my ultra sound! I think David is more excited then I am to find out what we are having.

Happy Thanksgiving

We hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving yesterday. Ours was really nice. It was nice to see some old friends and meet some new ones. Jessica's, Blue's wife, dad was visiting them for the holiday and ended up making all the food for us. Everything was so good. And now today we get to have another Thanksgiving dinner.

This morning we woke up pretty early to get some yard work done. We will have to go back out tomorrow to get some more done.

Miss you all!

Thanksgiving Plans

David has tomorrow and Friday off for Thanksgiving. So he will have a nice 4 day weekend. For Thanksgiving we will be going to Blue's (Greg) house. And Friday we will have dinner at our neighbor's house. I am excited to have two Thanksgiving...all that yummy food! We also plan on going to see a movie on Saturday and maybe we will be motivated to rake up some of the leaves in our yard. Our yard is pretty full of leaves now.

We probably wont even try to hit up any stores this weekend. David doesn't like being around that many people and with me being pregnant I get so hot with all those people. I don't want to risk getting hot and then fainting again.

I actually completed a page in my scrapbook. I think it turned out pretty cute. Maybe I will get another page done this weekend.

I am not really enjoying wearing maternity clothes. Before I was pregnant I thought they had the cutest maternity clothes, but now that I have to wear them I basically hate them. Nothing seems to fit right. Everything seems a little to big right now but, I am to big to fit into my regular clothes. It is a bit depressing when your regular jeans don't even fit over your butt! I am just praying I will be able to get some what close to my regular size after this pregnancy. I must say my moods have been going crazy lately. One second I am fine, the next second I could just cry over nothing, then the next second I am crabby and one second after that I am fine again. It's wierd how your moods just kick in overdrive when you are pregnant.

Tomorrow I will already be 20 weeks pregnant. It seems like time is going pretty fast, but it could go a little faster. And 14 more days until my ultrasound!

No More Calls

We decided to get rid of our phone line through Vonage in December because David found a cheaper line through MSN. But with our new phone line you wont be able to call us anymore, we'll just be able to call out. The new line is actually 3 times cheaper and we get double the minutes. Right now we need to save more then ever with a new baby on the way. It is sad we wont be able to get phone calls anymore. It always made my life feel a little more normal just knowing people could get intouch with us whenever they wanted. We weren't able to get calls for 3 years or even call home whenever we wanted, so I am sure I can make it another 2 1/2 years with out having people call.

No plans yet for Thanksgiving Day but on Friday we do have plans for dinner at our neighbors house.

16 more days until my ultrasound! I am getting so excited to find out what we are having.

We didn't get too much done this weekend. We stopped doing yard work for now until all the leaves fall. And I finally set up my scrapbooking stuff. David set up a nice area for me so I have plenty of room for all my stuff. I plan on starting the scrapbook for the baby today.

Dinner Plans

David and I are just about to leave to go to dinner with some people from his work. The dinner is for people who have just recently gotten here or who are leaving. They are actually welcoming David, even though we have been here for awhile now. I am pretty tired tonight and getting hungry, hopefully they get us our food fast. Even though I am not really in the mood to go out tonight, it is always nice to get out of the house and go somewhere new.

Feeling much better today after my drama day on Wednesday. I guess I just let my moods get the best of me.

Thats all for now...Time to head out.

I did go to my 16-20 week appointment yesterday. I must say by the time we got home I was confused, frustrated and crying. My new doctor I saw yesterday was great and very informative. I had switched to him after not really feeling comfortable with the doctor I was assigned to. Basically we found out that I have been seeing the wrong doctors from the beginning and I should have always been seen by a specialist. With having seizures I run a higher risk of having a seizure while pregnant, which could lead to hurting the baby or myself. And the specialist would do everything to make sure the baby is ok since I was still on my seizure meds when I got pregnant and for the 1st month or so. So far everything seems fine. The babies heart beat is great and I am gaining the right amount of weight. The doctor even let David find the babies heart beat at the appointment. He really thought that was neat and I was glad he got to get involved during my appointment. I have gained 12 lbs since becoming pregnant. I was shocked at first but found out I am right on track with my weight. David and I were both frustrated and confused that no one lead us in the right direction. You would think my last doctor would have informed us more and been more concerned about me having seizures, mostly because we are first time parents and really don't know what is all involved in being pregnant. I guess I was upset because I was wondering why we were basically left in the dark and ofcourse I was worried about our baby. We did get an appointment for December 6th with a OBGYN specialist. At that appointment I will finally get an ultrasound. My doctor said it will be a level 3 ultra sound to see the baby better and see how the baby is developing. Well for now we feel like we are on the right track with this pregnancy. I will keep updated on my pregnancy and appointments. And December 6th I will let you know if we are having a Girl or a Boy!!

Neat Feeling

The baby has been moving like crazy. What a neat feeling! I can even see the baby kick and move around. It's such a miracle. I love just watching my stomach for the baby to move. The baby is always moving around from top to bottom and side to side.

I go to the doctors tomorrow for my 16-20 week appointment. I will be one day shy of 19 weeks, so I am hoping my doctor will schedule my ultrasound for next week. They say 20 weeks and on are the best times in telling if you are having a girl or a boy. David and I can't wait to find out what we are having. I will post the date of the ultrasound as soon as we find out.

It has been getting a little colder here. Lots of windy days but no sign of snow. We actually still have lots of green leaves on our trees.

It's My Dad's Birthday

Happy Birthday Dad!! We hope you have a great birthday today! Don't work too hard. I wish we could be there for your birthday to help you celebrate. We miss and love you a lot and think of you daily. I can't wait until I get to see you all next month.

Happy Birthday! Love you, Sara, David and Baby

Here You Go

Finally a new pregnancy picture. I am 18 weeks and 3 days in this picture. As you can see I am getting a belly. I have started to wear maternity tops and pants now. Which makes a huge difference when you want to be comfortable as you grow. Sorry no tummy shots. I figured my maternity pants were too cool to show.

I got the flu shot yesterday. Boy was that fun. I went with my neighbor, who is also pregnant and we had to wait almost 2 hours for the shot. I almost just said lets come back later. But I made it through the wait and I am glad it is over with. It actually wasn't that bad. This morning my arm is very sore because I slept on my arm that I got the shot in.

Nothing exciting has happened the last few days. So I haven't had anything to write about in my blog. And I know I have been horriable at getting some pictures up of me.

David has today off for Veteran's Day. He is busy trying to get our computer set up down stairs. And I am sure we will do some more yard work tomorrow before it gets to cold here. It was pretty nice yesterday, no jacket needed.

First Kicks

I just talked to my grandma and it reminded me I haven't written in my blog for a couple of days now. This weekend was pretty packed full with lots of yard work, shopping and movie night.

David and I did lots of yard work on Saturday. We are trying to get the yard ready for winter. Even though we did so much in the yard, it doesn't even look like we put a dent in it. It looks like a jungle. We finally just started to pull almost everything out because we have no idea if it is a weed or not. David also cut the trees way back. My wonderful mom said she would help me plant some bulbs when she comes out in April.

Friday night we went and saw "Flags of our Fathers." It was a really good movie, I even stayed awake the whole movie. David wasn't to sure if he saw himself because the fight scenes go by so fast. But once it comes out on DVD we will be able to let you know forsure.

Also, at the movies I felt the baby move for the first time. What a cool feeling! I did have my first caffeine fix this pregnancy during the movie, so I am sure the baby was wondering what was going on. The baby was just going crazy for about 20 minutes. Ever since then I have been feeling the baby move, mostly in the evenings.

Otherwise, nothing else new. Today I am just packing up some Halloween stuff. I can't wait to get the house ready for Christmas.

Miss you all!

Movie Night

We are going to see "Flags of our Fathers" tonight. The movie doesn't even start until 9:30. Lately I have been dead tired between 8 - 9. I haven't stayed up past 9:00 in a long time. I know what you are thinking...Party Animal! But today I did prepare myself with a 4 hour nap. So we will see if I make it through the whole movie. I am sure I will because of the excitement of looking for David.

The weather here is getting colder. We have been in the high 40's and lower 50's and the trees are still pretty green.

Everything in my pregnancy seems to be going well. I go to the doctors in 2 weeks and hopefully I get an ultrasound shortly after that appointment. Been waiting to feel the baby move but nothing yet. Everything I have read said I should feel the baby move between now and about 20 weeks.

No One

Well we didn't get any trick-or-treaters last night. I guess I will just have to eat all that candy we bought...bummer huh. David did see one girl out with a costume on when he was driving home from work.

We just spent our night watching a movie. We got "Clay Pigeons" from netflix. I didn't like it. David thought it was just ok.
