Emily at 20 weeks Here is a 3D image from our Ultrasound on Monday.  You can see her profile and a hand in front of her face.  Isn’t technology amazing?  Now we can get a glimpse of what our child looks like before she is even born.  I feel so different now that I call our baby […]

IT’S A GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an amazing experience Greg and I and my entire family had today. I had my 20 week appointment at the doctor today.  That means I’m halfway through the pregnancy now and progressing very well!  That’s all great news, but I have to admit I was more anxious to find out the sex!  […]

Okay…so everyone is asking…here’s the big news…we find out Monday if we’re having a boy or a girl!!!!  And don’t worry, I’m not any good at keeping secrets, so you know I will shout it from the mountain tops when we find out!  I’ve been pretty under the weather lately, you might be able to […]

So, I’m sitting on my couch again…watching the Emmy’s Red Carpet Show…and voting online on all the fashion.  I love this stuff…and baby does too!  All of a sudden it feels like baby is doing somersaults in my tummy!  What an amazing feeling!  I absolutely love this.  Now, I’m trying to be so still so […]

Giving in… I realized something about myself…that my mother, sister, father, and husband have told me for years…I’m stubborn.  I just refused to give in to this sickness that I’ve been fighting for over a week now.  It wasn’t going to stop me, I was going to keep working, I never take sick days.  Never […]

Okay!  Okay!  So, my litle sister, Meaghan, is on me now to update more often.  She lives in Indianapolis and has a very busy job so it’s hard sometimes for us to reach each other.  I miss here so much!  We joke that we’re the only two people in the world that completely understand each […]

I’m sorry, I haven’t updated in over a week now.  I’ve spent so much time covering the news of Hurricane Katrina that I had to take a bit of a “vacation of the mind” the past couple of days.  My pastor always told me to “guard my heart”.  Make sure you’re doing the same.  I […]

I’ve never before been so excited to go to the doctor in my life!  I used to dread my annual “female” visit, but now I can’t wait to go see my OB…because that is the only place I can literally see an image of my baby!  It just makes it so real when you get […]

A case of the “huff-and-puffs”…. This is Greg’s new term for me, “huff-and-puff”.  Last night, let’s just say, I was experiencing the common pregnancy symptom of irrationality.  I don’t know what caused the switch, but as soon as I got home last night from work, I was not the ususal joyful wife that my husband […]
