Dr. Appointment

Yesterday I went to my second doctors appointment.  It would of been like a 5 minute visit, but this thing I signed up for (at least I think that's what it was) had a lady come talk to me.  She asked me a bunch of questions and evaluated my poor diet haha.  They just listened to the heartbeat, which I guess was ok since they didn't say anything.  And they took my blood pressure...which again I assume was ok because she didn't even tell me what it was.  You can't forget the dreadful peeing in a cup haha.  I did find out though, that my blood type is O- so because Matt is positive, I have to get a shot at 28 weeks...something like "The Rh Factor". I also had to give more blood for a test that tests for Down's Syndrome and some other stuff.  At least this time I didn't get a huge bruise like last time.   I go back in two weeks to get an ultrasound which will tell us for sure the sex.  I also need to find a pediatrician (I know that's spelled wrong, but I'm too lazy to go correct it).  Now when you find one...are you supposed to like call them and say your so far along and you want them to be your doctor for the baby afterwards?  Or do you not even talk to them until after the babies born?  Oh my! I never really noticed my stomach growing (I guess cause I see it everyday) but I took a couple pictures weeks apart and aw man it is bigger.  Strange to me.
It seems weird to me to talk about "the future"...still feel like its a jinx...even though sometimes I can't help but think about it.  Things like "Wow this Christmas we'll have an extra person." haha WEIRD!  I've also tried to make some plans for Thanksgiving.  I know we still have a while, and it's not like they're concrete plans, just shooting ideas around. 
Everyone is talking about going up to Park I want to go so bad!  This is one of those times when I think "maybe we should move back."  Gah! Why can't everyone just live in the same state?!  I guess that's what I get for meeting my man online >.<

Karate Kid

Yesterday Matt said he wanted to get out of the house, so we decided to go see The Karate Kid.  It was really good!  Jayden looks and talks JUST like his dad.  And for as little as he is he had some serious muscle.  Of course Jackie Chan was awesome!  Who doesn't love Jackie Chan?  This is the first movie where I saw him cry...and first time with a mustache haha.  This movie just upped my want to learn some form of Karate or Kung Fu.  I know I'd suck at it, but I still think it would be way fun.  Ever since I watched Chris take a karate class when I was little, I wanted to learn.  I guess now I'll have to wait haha.  I recomment seeing it, expecially if you like Will Smith movies. 

I got my first baby gift the other day.  We went over to Matt's dad's for dinner, and Emma kept talking about the baby, so Kim let her give us "an early gift" haha.  It's a Take-Along Swing.  It's weird to me to have a baby toy in my house that I'm not giving to someone else.  I go to my second doctors appointment tomorrow, and I'm nervous.  That's probably weird, but I'll probably be nervous pretty much every time because I'm not crazy about doctors.  Matt's stupid work was supposed to give him his half day (that he has later) tomorrow so he could take me...and he asked in plenty of time.  And did they? Nope...can you believe that?  Sigh. 

Well, Happy Monday!

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day (yesterday)!
Yesterday we went to Matt's aunt's house and hung out with his dad, little sister, grandparents who were visiting from Kansas, and of course his aunt haha.  His grandma made some kind of noodles by hand (I guess it took all day) and she put them in a broth with pieces of chicken and rabbit..I think.  There was also garlic bread and fudge.  Emma was swimming, and I would of joined because the pool was really warm, but I'd only get in a swimsuit if I had Kim's that she had last year to cover her pregnant belly.
I don't know what my daddy did, but I called him that night (no signal at aunt's house).  I had something little to send him, but since they are going on vacation today...and it was going to be late anyway, I decided to wait to send it.  So I made sure to tell him that I didn't forget hehe.

Well today has been a boring 10 I had put in my second load of laundry, which is big for me since I have to walk down to do it.  I decided to change my background to summer since it's almost July....even though we haven't managed to make it down to the beach yet. 
I'm hoping to go out to Utah at the end of July, but we'll have to see.  Today I found a pretty good price, but as we all know, that doesn't mean it'll be that price tomorrow. 
I have another doctors appointment next Tuesday.  I wonder if they'll confirm the sex then.  It seems kind of still doesn't really feel real.  Is it bad that I'm about 16-17 weeks and haven't felt any movement? 
I had all this stuff I was gunna put on here...I put off typing it and now I've forgotten haha.  So....I guess I'll go change my laundry again.  Sounds fun don't it!?

Well, today was my first official doctors visit...after taking matt to the emergency room to get a Tetanus shot because he got bit at work (haven't been to any doctor in a looong time).  After sitting in the surprisingly busy waiting room, we met with a lady who gave us a ton of information, and a baggy full of more information.  Than we went up stairs where I got the "lady doctor" stuff done.  We couldn't really plan anything without knowing how far along I am, so she managed to get us an ultrasound for right than.  We went over, got the was that trippy.  I never actually expected to see something pop up on the screen haha (that is called denile!).  After printing us some pictures, we went and had my blood drawn.
What a long...eventful day.  Interesting huh? :)
