17 weeks

Belly is still growing! This has been an interesting week. On Tuesday we went in for our normal check up and everything was great. Then on Wednesday, I had a fainting spell at work and didn't think much about it. The same thing happened again on Thursday, but it happened three times. Called the dr. and they got me in that afternoon. I also had a spell at the dr.s office and at home while resting on the couch.

My dr thinks it is a mixture of Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar and fluids. I guess the almost 100oz of fluids aren't enough. LOL I'm pushing even more fluids through the day and even more proteins first thing in the morning. My dr. ran some blood tests to check other things, so we will see what thoes show.

One week from today is my shower :) I can't wait. I'm so excited to see and talk to everyone.

On Friday, I took my students on a field trip. We had so much fun. We went to a play then to a wonderful park for lunch and to play. Martha Rivers Park will be a great place to take the kids when they are old enough. Here are even more pictures.

Had our 16w Dr. visit today

We went to our 16w Dr. visit today and they are doing great. Even though I'm still down 20lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight, they are growing as they should. We got to hear the beautiful sounds of their hearts beating away. Baby A was at 148bpm and Baby B was at 142bpm.

Dad Brand, you are the first family member to leave a comment. You should get a prize or something(I'll work on that). We really appreciate comments. At times we feel so detached from all of our friends and family in MI that its really nice when you leave comments. It makes us feel like we aren't so far away.

We are really looking forward to coming back to MI. We are planning on visiting with everyone that we can. We aren't sure when the next time will be. We have the green light from the dr. to visit.

TO ALL THE LADIES: My best friend Stef. is hosting a shower for me on Sunday, April 6th at 3pm. It is at Sturgis Missionary Church. I tried to get invites out to everyone, but I may have missed someone. I'm SORRY if I missed you on the list, but you are still invited.

Take care all! We love and miss you.

15 Weeks

Yesterday we went shopping for clothes that fit over this belly and will continue to fit the rest of the pregnancy (we pray). This is one of the dresses that we found, and I LOVE it, it is so comfortable.

Many of you have asked if we are registered and if so where. I've made it easy for you and I'm going to include links here in this post and off to the side of our blog so that you can find them anytime.

We are registered at Wal-mart and Babies R Us

We will be back in MI April 6th- April 12th. We will be trying to see as many of you as we can. My wonderful best friend Stefanie is hosting a shower for us on April 6th. Ladies if you don't get an invitation in the next few weeks, let me know, because it must have been an oversight. As soon as I get the rest of the shower details, I will post them. I would love for all of my friends and family to be able to attend.

Please continue to pray for the health of our growing family. We will be going to our next Drs appt on March 25th for a check up. Our big ultrasound will be on April 14th and we hope that we will be able to find out what we are having at that time. The big ultrasound is going to be done at a specialist here in Gastonia that specializes in high risk pregnancies.

We have no idea who is looking at our blog or what they think of it. Family and Friends, please post a comment when you read. We miss all of you and would love a quick little line or two. At the bottom of the post, there is a link for comments, just click on that and post a comment. You don't have to have an account to post a comment, just put your name in your comment.

Hugs to all!!! We love you!!!
