Today was sweltering hot! So what is a pregnant lady to do? Sleep in the only room with an AC unit. I made us late for our appointment because I took a nap and then needed a shower. It was worth the wait!
MEET OUR BABY!
That is right ladies and gentlemen we are having a baby boy!!! We hope you have all enjoyed the wait.
This is Becca. Pregnancy has been going pretty well. I finally am getting some energy and appetite back. I have made almost every dinner this last week or so! I was also able to eat it and not throw up! My belly is getting bigger which surprises me every time I look in the mirror. No funny cravings. I love fruit I crave it all the time. Popsicles, shaved ice, fruit smoothies, and fruit drinks are also really big on my eating list. We have a fridge stocked and we bought a blender to help the cravings. We won't know until July 10th what we are having, but we keep trying to get baby names together.
Here are photos of my belly bump:(Beware my belly is exposed)
First month of pregnancy:
Second Month and a half:
These last two weeks we have gone to Orem Summer fest. Which is a carnival with rides and great food. There was a sign as soon as you walk up to the ticket booth for rides that said "No pregnant women on rides." So Daniel and I enjoyed the food. We have been able to go swimming which baby really likes. We have also been to another carnival and we went to a kids old time candy/toy store. We have been having a lot of fun when baby lets me, and are excited to spend our summer together instead of long distance.
Daniel is still working at Actavis pharmaceuticals which has been a wonderful job that he has really enjoyed. We are still looking to move to SLC. Other then that we are doing great!
Well things have been going pretty well for Becca and I as of late. We are excited that baby is growing and doing well. We have an ultrasound scheduled for July 10th, and then we will know what we are having. Becca has been doing very well with the pregnancy and hasn't been as nauseous lately.
Becca and I are still looking to move closer to work. We haven't found any place we like yet, but will plan on moving in early August, or late July.
Work is going well for me, I'm enjoying what I do and enjoy working with a bunch of nerdy chemists.
All in all things are going great. The Lord really has blessed me and my wife.
Well, it has been quite a while since I've updated ye olde blog, seeing as how the last post I made was right before Becca and I got married. So here is a quick update on things that have happened in the last little bit, and then we'll get to the good stuff.
Becca and I were married, it was awesome.
We spent Christmas with the family in Idaho, braving snow storms on the way up and the way back down.
Good old jeep got us through them just fine though.
I took my pretty lady cross country skiing.
She did great.
I started a position at a pharmaceutical plant as a temp.
I missed interviewing at University of Iowa med school due to ice storms at both Salt Lake and Cedar
Rapids. No interview invites from any other schools.
Becca fulfilled one of her life long dreams of running a Ragnar.
David left for his mission and Bitsy got her mission call.
We bought binoculars to go stargazing with. They're pretty neat.
I got hired full time at the pharmaceutical plant as a quality control Chemist. I test drugs all day with a bunch of nerds, and they pay me moneys, and give me free drugs aka great insurance. Which brings us to.....
Pause for effect
Becca is 10 weeks pregnant, working hard all day long at producing a beautiful little peanut inside of my beautiful bride. She has been fighting morning sickness, but is defiantly winning the war. She has some weird food aversions as well, so she isn't winning all the battles.
