Plugging along...

I am getting anxious to see this sweet little girl. I am just about 23 1/2 weeks I think. So almost 6 months?! Today I went to a pilates class with a friend thinking that I wouldn't be able to do all of it (like the laying on your stomach stuff)... Well, apparently big bellies and pilates don't go together all that well... and neither does trying to keep your "tummy tight" and pregnancy. I had to leave the class midway through and go run... Afterall I didn't want to waste an hour of my kids enduring childcare on sitting on a mat watching everyone "keep their (already tight) tummy's tight." Thank goodness I did get a good workout in and still picked up my sweet boys before they were totally sick of the childcare. No more pilates... at least for a few months.
It feels like August is years away. And it also feels like December (when I found out I was pregnant) was years ago. How long is a typical pregnancy? Surely not years?!

Today I had an ultrasound... It was just supposed to be a follow up because at my last one she wasn't able to see the face. Well, she still wasn't able to see the face, because apparently amniotic fluid makes it easier to see things... Well, good thing she did the ultrasound... because she discovered that my amniotic fluid is low. It is supposed to measure between 10-20 (centimeters I think?) and it is only measuring 8. So, right now I am to be drinking a ton of water, which may cure the problem, and they will be checking it again at my next appointment on May 20th. So, if you get a chance, please pray. We want to keep the baby safe! Thanks!

sad... but encouraging! (also very random)

Today I finally went to the gym. Not just for bible study or coffee. That last sentence may have sounded a little weird to those of you who aren't stay at home moms in Flower Mound... You see our gym has become a great meeting grounds for my friends and I to meet and visit or do bible study, because it has childcare for 2 hours at a time and a cafe. It is NOT the kind of gym we (my family) would normally find ourselves at as it is rediculously expensive... but last September our old gym (which I loved- and I actually exercized at) sold out to this new gym and we got a "good" rate... So we moved. Which was so exciting at first, because of all the crazy but fun ammenities, but now... I have been realizing just how much I haven't been working out. So...
to get to my point. Today I went to the gym with a full intention of working out. I didn't meet anyone there or anything. And, sadly after 20 minutes on the eliptical and only 10 minutes of running I was SOOO proud of myself. Like I seriously wanted to tell everyone there that I had run for 10 minutes straight.LOL Wow, things have gotten bad. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of working out. I would really not love to gain the 50 pounds with this baby that I feel like I am going to gain.
Sorry that was a totally random post!

This may be too soon.LOL

Wait... I don't have to wait weeks or even months between posts? Am I actually posting two days in a row? Yes I am. It is after 2 o'clock pm... and I should be showering (no, I have not even gotten dressed today) but no. I am posting some pictures that Dawn gave me last night! Love them! Thanks sister!

Long over due...

I finally uploaded our pictures from Paris... I don't remember if I mentioned it in any previous posts... I'm sure I did... but we went there in mid-march and had a great time!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did...

The obligatory picture in front of the Eiffel tower!:) This was on our way back to the hotel from going up the Eiffel tower... It was incredible!

This picture was taken halfway up the Eiffel tower... We couldn't go all the way up because it was closed for maintenance:( But I think it was just as incredible from halfway. I mean, you could still see the whole city! Which is MASSIVE! I was leaving the next day, and we realized how little of the city we had seen in our 4 days.

This is us sitting outside a cafe after we finished lunch. The reflection of the building you can see in the window behind us is pretty typical of what everything there looks like. It was all very beautiful... and old! It even smelled old... Outside. Kinda weird.

This picture was taken across the river from the cathedral of Notre Dame. It was in my opinion Paris' #1 attraction. Better than the Eiffel tower by FAR! It was amazing!

On the "Batobus," the boat that drove us along the Seine to get to the main attractions.
