The last couple of weeks have been busy ones. I ended up with Phillip's cold. It was a bad one but nothing major. I also ended up with the stomach bug that was circulating. Not fun. I have also been struggling with pregnancy headaches. Man are they brutal! Nothing shakes them and I usually end up very sick.

Happy news is that we finally had our first doctor appointment. Phillip was on Spring Break so he got to go! We loved the doctor and are very excited about being under her care. We also found out that I am 11 weeks along tomorrow. My due date is October 20th. She had originally set my due date as October 9th but after the ultrasound (!!) we determined that I was only 10 weeks. Seems that Phillip and I were right on guessing the date. We went in expecting to hear the little heartbeat but got an ultrasound instead. I am not quite far enough along to hear the heartbeat. It seems that we already have a wiggler! It wouldn't stop moving! I may have fun days ahead of me.

Spring is here! I am so excited to be having 80 degree weather and see things grow. We went to the park yesterday and fed the ducks! No babies yet though. Maybe soon.........

So I'm Bad At Blogging

Well, it's been almost a month since my last post. I keep waiting for something fun and worth writing about happens, but nothing has happened. I finally have an appetite! That's good I guess. When I get ready for the day food wise I have learned that I WAY underestimate my need for food. I am a pro at eating everything I took for the day and my lunch by 10AM. Yesterday, with the taste of grapes still in my mouth, I was starving and made a dash for McDonalds. But my taste for fast food has been completely lost. I got halfway through my double cheeseburger and threw the rest away. It was just nauseating to eat. I guess that's good. Still don't have any cravings, but fruit is always good.

Last week was nuts. I totally neglected my father by not calling him and heard about it yesterday!We had something going on almost every night. Baby shower and going away parties galore! Some of our good friends are leaving us. Seth graduated this past summer from the seminary and has answered the call to be a solo pastor at a church in Vermont. We are happy for them (they answered God's call AND they are going home) but will miss them terribly. Maybe we can take a family trip to Vermont eventually.

Phillip is totally sick. We have no idea what he has but I am positive that I don't want it. I have been trying to convince him to go to the doctor, but it's been an uphill battle. We'll just keep giving him lots of water, vitamin C and good ole Goldenseal. Maybe I'll just drag him to the doctor.............
