Laila's sympathy pains

WARNING!!! May gross some of you out!

Laila suddenly decided last night that she needed to "puke". Pulled up her step stool, sat down and went to town! I had to get it on video! Cracked me up. Kinda gross, but funny. I haven't got sick in almost 2 weeks so she pulled it out from almost no where.

We got our dream house!!!!!



Top:front yard/house RIGHT: backyard-to the left is the extra garage

I cannot believe how lucky of a year 2008 seems to be turning out to be!!! If you're into prayers, please pray we sell our current house though-lol.

The house is:
1,912 sq. ft (mind you our current home is 900!)
3 bedrooms, 2 full baths
basement
sunroom w/ jacuzzi off master bedroom
family room w/ fireplace and sky lights
first floor laundry (YAY!)
in-ground pool
80 x 233 foot yard
2 car attached garage
2 1/2 car detached garage in back (Curt's dream!)
Great school district

AND!!!! I felt the baby move!!! It is still so early so I wasn't very sure, but I felt it last night, but wasn't sure then today the same thing-it had to be it. How exciting! I cannot wait until I feel it regularly. Life is truly amazing! We cannot believe how much God has been blessing us lately.

Good times!

Had an appointment yesterday. Finally, just a normal "boring" you're pregnant appointment. After the nurse heard the HB (which I have been hearing every day, yesterday morning included) and left, I got so choked up. It's been slowly hitting me that it is real and I very well may bring this baby home in August, but being at the doctors just really confirmed. I saw the midwife who I only saw for the second pregnancy and m/c and one appointment for bleeding while PG the 2nd time. She came in all excited and gave me a big hug. She said I was her grand finale of the day and she could not wait to see me. I felt so awesome! I noticed later that there was a drawn smiley face highlighted on my chart. I felt so special-lol We discussed the QUAD test and we decided it was not for us with the high false positive rate and us worrying about fragile X I did not want another "what if" case scenario to worry about. So she said, let's just enjoy being pregnant and I agreed!!

We talked about the possibility of being induced should I go past my due date. I guess they do that w/ unexplained m/c patients as to try to avoid a still birth. I told Curt at 36 weeks I may say let's do it now! Whatever is the best I'm all for. Laila was aw eek early so I'm not thinking I have a high chance of going past the due date anyway.We talked about my low lying placenta which is still a wait and see thing. I am scared to death for a c-section, but no use worrying now.

I guess that's it! All is good elsewhere in our lives-finally the sickies have left our house.
