Updates...

Baby Update:
I am almost through my first trimester!...1 more week to go!
And, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I have LOVED being pregnant! It has been the most amazing experience of my life! Knowing their is a precious baby inside me, is almost unfathomable! I want nothing more than for this lil' one to be healthy and happy! It is crazy how your motherly-instincts kick in immediately and you start to worry about EVERYTHING: eating right, staying away from things that could possibly harm the baby, getting plenty of rest, and plenty of food and water...and the list goes on...
Our last doctors appointment was on April 29th, and we heard the baby's heartbeat for the first time! It was so neat! It was a little fast, but nothing to worry about!
Here is a picture of our 1st ultrasound at 6 weeks 6 days...just a few days after our first doctors appointment, so the baby was about the size of a grain of rice. Now, at 11 weeks, it is about the size of a fig...;)


On a sour note:
I have been SO SICK! My morning sickness is more like, all day sickness. Or, I have days where I feel great! Weird...My hunger and my appetite contradict each other...I am ALWAYS hungry, and NOTHING sounds good! But, even so, I have loved every minute. I will do whatever it takes!;)
Good News:
After finishing up my pre-reqs
Job Shadowing
and LOTS and LOTS of stressing...
I got a letter in the mail last week from Weber State University saying I got ACCEPTED into the Radiology program!!! YAY!!! All the hard work paid off, and I couldn't be happier!
School starts up in August, and we get all of December off. Since the baby is due November 30th-ish...it works out perfect. When I start back up in January, unless something changes, Dustin will be home with the baby the 3 days I am at the hospital! If a job surfaces for Dustin, I may need advice on good baby-sitters...;)
Keepin' Busy:
We have been enjoying the few days of nice weather that we have had...
So, we have been working in the yard!
We are almost done with our mounds, and I will post pictures asap!
It is a lot of work!
My 1st Mother's Day:
My 1st Mother's Day couldn't have been more perfect! Dustin got me a beautiful ring, and some cute summer clothes;) We went to lunch with Mom, Jerry, Grandma Dona, and Kayla and the kids at Big Rock Candy Mountain! It was delish, and great to spend the day with family!
And, Happy Mother's Day to our 2 beautiful mom's! We are so lucky!
