Baby Update!

   Well we went back to the baby doctor yesterday! We didn't get to see our little peanut but we heard it! That was by far the most wonderful, amazing sound we have ever heard! Both of us almost cried, which is a big deal for Scott, he never cries. I think it is so sweet to see him get emotional and excited over the baby, it's a side of him that people don't get to see often. The doctor said the heartbeat sounded great, that it was at a very healthy rate, although she didn't tell us what it was.
I am going on the 31st for the bloodwork that predicts if there is anything wrong with the baby. We decided to do that because we would rather know before the baby is born if it will have any defects or handicaps so that way we can be prepared in every aspect as much as we can. We would obviously love it regaurdless but our prayer is that it will be as healthy as can be!
On April 15th we get to find out if it's going to be a girl or boy! We cannot wait to find out! I can't wait to start working on the nursery and buying clothes and toys and all of that good stuff! Scott isn't as excited about the buying stuff yet but I am sure once we see our peanut again and find out the sex he will be buying stuff like crazy!
As far as the pregnancy goes for me, I'm getting bigger eventhough I haven't really gained any weight. I am mostly in the smaller maternity jeans and like lounge pants. Pants with zippers and bottons don't really get along with me anymore. I am getting some energy back although I have to make sure I don't do too much at once or I crash and take a nice long nap. I am pretty much always hungry now and have had a few headaches mostly from my allergies which are awful this time of year. I am going to try to tuff it out though without any meds because I know that's best for the baby. Other than that things are getting much better and much more enjoyable.
Aside from the baby news things with us are going great. Scott has been able to focus much more on school and making lessons for the youth. He has loved being able to spend so much time with the youth and teach some lessons, it gets him excited about the day when he, well we, have our own youth group. He has applied at a few jobs he knows he will get an interview at one of them, thanks to a great friend! He is still waiting to here back from the others and is going to be applying for more jobs next week. I have been very busy at work I am so glad that I am down to 3 days a week at Massage Envy I would be dead on my feet if I was still at 5days a week. I have also started working back at CCA(the school at our church) one day a week teaching music to Elementary and the 4yr olds! It is a lot of fun and helps out with the bills too!
 So overall things are getting better an much more exciting! I will keep you posted as things happen!
