It's all good!

An update for my friends....I got the rest of my test results back today. Everything is perfect. I will for SURE not be going into labor for the next two weeks. If I have any more symptoms in the next two weeks, they can test me again, but if looks as though I will still be delivering right around Christmas!

Just wanted to let everyone know not to worry about me!!! Love you all!!!!

Already keeping me on my toes!

I am a total nervous nelly about EVERYTHING, so today was a little much for me and my nerves! I went on a walk yesterday and to say the least...I may have overdone it a bit. I had a little spotting and because I had also been sick at the end of last week, my doctor told me to absolutely NOT go into work today. She set up all sorts of tests and today turned into a day of poking and prodding!

So far everything has come back GREAT! It has been a huge relief so far. Maddux is still kicking around in there like crazy and I'm more certain than ever that I am going to have a VERY active child!

I am waiting for the other test results for tomorrow that can predict if I could go into pre-term labor. They are fairly certain that everything is totally normal at this point...but until I hear the official results tomorrow, my nerves will continue to get the best of me! :)

The best part is that I got an ultrasound today that I wasn't planning on. It was so awesome to get to see him in there moving around. Maddux kept sticking his tongue out and he totally has Drew's lips, which I am SO thrilled about!

Notice in the third picture how he is totally pouting! It was so cute!! He didn't like that the nurse kept pushing on my tummy. He was trying to get some rest in there!!!

3 more months and counting!!!!

27 Weeks...

Here is my ever-growing belly at 27 weeks. It seems so pointy and big to me, but I've never experienced this before, so I really have nothing to compare it to! I'm still loving being pregnant and I can hardly wait for lil' Maddux to make his debut! It seems like there are more and more people around me with newborns and it just makes me that much more excited to be a mom! This picture isn't great, so I'm going to try to get another one to add....

This is so true...I have to share!

1. You can hear 25 voices behind you and know exactly which one belongs to the child out of line.

2. You get a secret thrill out of laminating something.

5. You can eat a multi-course meal in under twenty-five minutes.

6. You've trained yourself to go to the bathroom at two distinct times of the day: lunch and prep period.

Party with the Wii

Happy Birthday to Lauren! She got a Wii for her birthday, so a bunch of us tested it out last night. Talk about a fun time! That thing kept us entertained for hours! And it was a workout!! Double bonus! (If you notice, there are no pictures of Lauren playing the Wii, it was hogged ALL night and she never even got a chance to play with her own birthday present! What a bunch of jerky friends we are!!!)


My Job

This has been my most difficult year teaching yet. I'm not sure if it's because of the pregnancy and being exhausted and impatient or if it really is that my kids are just extra needy this year. Either way, here are a few pics to show you what I do all day.

My classroom.....

HILARIOUS!!!!! This is the FIRST time I have ever had a student turn in a math homework assignment on a paper plate! I could not control myself from laughing for about 10 straight minutes, and then a little here and there throughout the rest of the day! I am not even JOKING when I say this year is BEYOND interesting....

Talk about relaxed....

Megan and Jeff invited us to their family cabin in Pinetop for Labor Day weekend. It was truly the most relaxing and much needed time away from everything you could ask for. How many episodes can a person possibly watch of "America's Next Top Model" in one day? Well, let us tell you.....TOO MANY!! We were nothing short of pathetic, but can you blame us? It was wonderful! But, due to my lack of showering and caring what I looked like this weekend, I have NO pictures that I approve of at all. But...I will post a few anyway, just try to control your laughter!
