Baby Update

Baby is finally big enough that you can SEE some evidence of my labors from the last 4 and a half months. Which is exciting!!

ALSO, less than one week until we find out if baby is a pink or a blue! Hooray!

Old Navy's Maternity/Baby Sale

Old Navy has been having this HUGE Maternity/Baby Sale. And I needed another pair of maternity jeans. So we got some stuff. Then we realized that we were only about $12 away from being able to get free shipping. So, we decided to take a look at what baby things we could add on.

We haven't bought ANY baby things yet. We don't find out the gender for 2 more weeks (Oct 6). But we decided it wouldn't hurt to look for some neutral things that we liked.

And this was just too cute to resist:

The Beginning of Nursing School

I started Nursing School this semester. So far, nothing too exciting has gone on.

But on Monday, I had my first round of clinicals at the hospital!

I was on a Medical/Oncology floor and assigned to a nurse named Trent. Because we haven't learned much, there wasn't much for me to do. I listened to some heart beats/lung sounds on some patients. And checked their pulses and such. And cleaned up some poo. Otherwise, I just followed the nurse around.

So, it was uneventful. But everyone has to start somewhere, right?

Here I am all dressed up and ready to head to the hospital!! I felt so official in my uniform with my badge and everything!

I would like to make excuses for this picture by saying that at this point in the day I'd already been at work for almost nine hours (after working twelve hour shifts the two days preceding)... So I was TIRED! But the battery on the camera died so we only got one shot. And this is it.

Baby - 17 Weeks

Okay... So... I realize that it has been FOREVER since I posted. But.. School started and life got busy! Until I have time to do another post (which will either be tomorrow or sometime late next week), here's a belly picture and a quick story!

I went into the OB yesterday. And we were listening to the baby's heartbeat on the Doppler. All of a sudden we hear this loud WHOOMP. The nurse starts laughing and said that that was the baby kicking at the microphone!

ALSO.... we scheduled the big anatomy scan/gender ultrasound!! So mark your calendars! October 6th at 3:30PM

Can't wait!
