Moving Week

This is moving week. We finally get to move into our new, beautiful house. I am so excited and yet a lot overwhelmed, as well. We have a lot of packing I need to complete. The best part is that I get to decide where everything goes! Being pregnant has it's benefits.... all I can do is fill boxes and unload them in the new house. :D

Thank you to my husband and to any others that have been praying for me. I didn't even really have to talk to anyone at work, they just adjusted and in turn I've had a good work week. In addition to that, the student that was observing with our office for a few weeks has now been hired on full-time. I am very excited about this because I really like Jess and I think that they made an excellent decision. There are just too many things going on for the next year or so with so many of us at work and I think it will make everyone's life much easier to have another member on board. My body is still worn out at bit but I think it's probably just all part of being pregnant. I think that I will be tired from now on.... until all of my children are moved out and moved on anyway. :D I'm so excited to meet my daughter. I hate to wish time away but I really do wish it was July already! I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weekend that we have coming up. Next time I write will probably be from my new home.

Much love and many blessings,

Things are really coming together with our house. The alarm is almost completely installed and otherwise things are pretty well finished. I want to re-paint the base boards throughout the bedrooms and re-paint two doors that look a little rough but there is nothing that NEEDS to be done. We are moving stuff on April 29th and 30th and then the movers are coming to get the furniture on May 1st. Thank goodness things are almost complete. I can't believe that we finally have a house! I also can't wait to have all our friends over to see everything! :D

Baby Lucy seems to be doing well (FYI we are naming our daughter Lucy). She is a very active kicker and it makes me really excited everytime I feel her moving around. I can't believe that she'll be here in 13 weeks and 5 days. Time in general flies by these days. Hours, days, weeks... they are just blowing by. I'm sure once she's born it will be even worse.

Things have gotten difficult with work. My doctor gave me orders not to stand for more than 30 minutes at a time but the women I work with aren't quite as considerate as I thought they would be. Let me explain that it isn't all of them. The doctors are fine with whatever I do, it's just a couple of the ladies that are trying to make me feel guilty and because I'm emotional and pregnant right now I'm struggling with how to deal with it all. I don't know when I became such a chicken that I couldn't talk to people and stand up for myself... that has just never been me. I'm not going to the doctors about it, I'll just have to figure out who to talk to and how to best approach this conversation. Everyone pray for me about this. I wish that I could just work in the office for now (under I deliver anyway) because I know how to do everything there and working in surgery is really putting a strain on my body. I had a hard day Thursday and I'm still trying to recover! There's no reason that I should hurt like this when there are others at work that can work in surgery just as easily as I can.

I guess I'm off to take a shower and then get some rest. I have a feeling tomorrow is going to be a hard day for me.

Sorry for the absence

Hello all! There should have been many updates since I last wrote but life is a bit busy these days.

In baby news, we are having a baby girl!!! She's due July 24th and we are super excited. I am getting a pretty big belly these days... it's getting scary. Things aren't too uncomfortable yet... I am having a lot of pelvic pressure and low back pain but we only have 14.5 more weeks to go, so I think I can make it. I go to the doctor again tomorrow and I'm hoping for a good report.

In other news, we have our own house now. We closed a few weeks ago and have started the painting/ decorating process for now. The official move is May 1st. We originally thought we'd live in Hixson or Red Bank but found a home that we both LOVED in East Brainerd, so we bought it. It was built in 2002, so there aren't any necessary repairs. We just wanted to paint the nursery and put in a network and alarm system.

Needless to say, life is busy and expensive right now. :) Also, my hormones are raging. I cry and laugh harder than ever before. And I go from super excited to majorly bummed with ease. In all honesty, being pregnant has been a real breeze for me though. I know I mentioned discomfort, but I actually feel so honored to be a soon-to-be mommy. It's a real privilege. Everyone should probably pray for my husband though. He seems to be a nervous wreck these days. I understand why he's worried but it just surprises me that he is reacting this way. He's always been so laid back and I've been the OCD freak... now the tables are turning a bit.

There are probably more updates but they escape me for the time being. I'm going to take a long hot shower and relax.

Much love and many blessings,
