29 weeks and counting

We are now 29 weeks. My blood pressures have started to go up. I will be doing a 24 hour urine collection (TMI) to check my protein. We want to check to see if I am developing pre-eclampsia which we all have a feeling might happen. We are very greatful for the health and strength that I have been blessed with in this pregnancy. We are blessed that nothing has showed up until now. We had an apointment today and baby's heartbeat was 150 which is where he tends to stay. We are unable to travel for the holidays, so we are staying here in Missouri and will spend time with my dad and step-mom. This is our 3rd Christmas together and on the 26th we will celebrate 3 years from our first date. Practically since we met since we met online and went on a blind date of sorts. I can not believe that in less than 10 weeks we will have this beautiful baby boy to hold. We have another apointment next Tuesday to check the results of the test and to check my blood pressures which I will be taking religiously this next week twice a day. We are excited and nervous as well. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.

22 weeks 5 days

We are 24 weeks today. Everything is going good. I have come to the realization that I might just have nausea all the way to the end. But, it is NOT near anything like it was th first 14 weeks. My blood pressure did spike a little for a few days but it is better now. We only have 16 weeks left til our due date however will probably be induced around 36 or 37 weeks. Depending on his lungs. James is getting very excited as well. So are our families. This is the first grandson on his side of the family. We have the nursery mostly done and I got all of his clothes pre-wahed and folded and ready to go. The only thing we still have to get for the nursery at least is a changing table and a crib matress. This time has flown by so fast. I remember those fist 16 weeks were so slow it was like each day felt like a week. But now we look at the calendar and are like wow we are 24 weeks. Wait, What? He truly is a blessing and this is truly a great time in our lives. James said that this is our last "quiet" Christmas together for many years to come. BUt I am excited for those Christmases with our children. I made the comment to James that I feel like a hippo and he said that I was the smallest, most dainty , beautiful hippo ever. Then I said that they are born at 500 lbs so what is he really saying?

It's a BOY!

We are now 20 weeks 3 days. We are happy to announce we are having a baby boy. We are so excited. I have been in California for a week. My mom and sister threw me a baby shower. Then I went to James' parents for a few days. It was very fun. James' parents bought him his first 49ers outfit since that is mine and James favorite team.

James and I have been called to be primary teachers in the CTR 6 class of our church. We have 15 six year-olds. They are not a bad class just a very rambunctous class that like to push the limits. We have only taught once but we like it and we like the kids. ( most of them) Just joking. James' parents came into town this weekend and we went to Branson and got to go to the Sons of The Pioneers dinner show. James and I and the grub were the youngest 3 people there by about 30 plus years. But we had fun. I am now 15 weeks along and everything is going well. At my last apointment the baby's heart was beating 150 BPMs. We are very excited. October 6th we will hopefully get to find out the gender. We have an ultrasound but wether or not we have a modest baby is the question. When that day comes we will update our post of the news.

What a wonderful day!

Last Monday on the 31st of August, we were sealed for time and all eternity in the Nauvoo,Il temple. The day was beautiful. We had found a rental house that they rent during the summer. All of James' siblings and their spouses and 2 children and his parents and my parents were all able to stay in one house and enjoy dinner together. The whole experience was amazing. In James' words, "It was awesome!" We are now 13 1/2 weeks along and at last in our second trimester. We are very thankful to our Heavenly Father for the opportunity at this time in our lives to become parents. We are happy that eveything is going well so far. Our next apointment is September 17. Also that weekend James' parents, George and Mary will be here for a few days. We have planned on taking them and my parents out to dinner on Friday. We are excited to have them here. We will keep updating as things happen.
