So here I am, late posting another one, surprise, surprise!! Here is my 14 1/2 week picture!! I look large and in charge in this picture! I about died when i looked at it after Josh took it. I had just eaten a very large meal, so I sure hope that some of that is because i ate. I can almost promise I wasn't this big this morning!! Regardless, I'm starting to feel better and better!! And i'm so definately excited about that. That tiredness was getting on my last nerve! And I know the picture looks large, butI've gained a total of 5 pounds so far. So I don't know if that's bad, but I hope not. With it being summer now though, I definately feel like i can eat better!! Fresh fruit, veggies on the grill. So let's hope i maintain a good pace for a while. The only thing that is bothersome right now is trying to get comfy in bed. If i lay on my back my lower back hurts and i end up sitting up in bed for a while. But the whole trying to lie on my stomach thing is slowly not feeling so hot either. I think i need to invest in one of those pillows that are advertised all over my pregnancy magazines!! Well that's all i have for this week. Going to the doctor next week should be a good post!! I'm kinda jealous. I work with a girl that found out at 15 weeks what she was having and i'll be that this week. And I'm not scheduled for an ultrasound this time. So maybe I can talk good ol' Dr. Howell into an earlier appointment in July so I can find out sooner!! That's what I'm so anxious about!! But I'll let ya know all the details next week!! Keep up the good prayers for us!! (And pray i don't look larger in my picture next week!) whew. I'm going to fall over backwards by 40 weeks! :)
Love, Layne and Josh!

13 weeks!

Trying to do a weekly update on this thing is harder to keep up with than i thought!! I don't have a picture of my belly this week, but i do have ultrasound pictures!!! YAY! They are absolutely adorable and it finally looks like a baby!! In this picture on the right, he/she is actually smiling, but you can't tell...stupid scanner!! This was the first ultrasound that I actually cried and i kept saying that I just wanted to hold it!! I was very excited. They did the whole genetic screening thing and it has came back negative, so that was a blessing!!

I also decided to tell my doctor that I was having these horrible palpitations that made me feel like i couldn't here i am wearing a heart monitor!! These stickies that I have to wear on my chest, omg...i now feel sorry for all of my patients that i take care of that say that these either itch or hurt!! I have welps and blisters and red squares all over my chest!! It's attractive, let me tell ya!! I was also excited because it showed that i had only gained a pound in the first 12 weeks. Well, that was a week ago, and when i was at work yesterday, it looks like i've already gained another two!! So gotta get back on track of the healthy foods! Everyone at work is asking me what all i've already bought for the it bad that i haven't bought anything??! Kinda hard to shop for something when you don't know the sex, or at least in my opinion! Maybe, i'm already failing as a parent!! hahaha. I get to go back to the doctor June 24th. I don't think i get an ultrasound with that appointment, but the next appointment will be the sex!!! YAY!! Time is flying!! I'll end this blog with another ultrasound picture of the baby, and at the bottom is the heartbeat!! I can't tell you what it makes you feel like when you hear that noise. It's breathtaking, it makes a mom immediately cry!!

Hope all of you guys have a great weekend!! Keep praying for this little one!! Love you all!
Josh and Layne!!
