Baby Update #3

Friday I had my 18 week appointment. We were really hoping they would do an ultrasound, but it worked out that we didn't because Jed had to stay home because he was so sick with a bad cold...which he has so kindly passed on to me. So I was really sad to go to this doctor's appointment, especially since it was our first appointment with the doctor I want to deliver with. The appointment went really well, again I got to hear the heart beat, I recorded it and was trying to post it but I can't figure out how to do that. It was good, it was 155 bpm and I am measuring right where I am supposed to be, but I don't remember what that was.

I am really excited about my doctor, she was very nice; she lived in Utah for a while and went to the U. We talked bikes for a while, she is one of those year round cyclists and she is really great at encouraging me to get out and be active.

We scheduled our ultrasound for Friday August 5th. I am really hoping that we will be able to find out the gender.

Sleepless Nights

All week I have been waking up at 3am and can't fall back to sleep. Earlier this week I was having the worse nightmares, one about a gorilla zombie. I have crazy dreams that someone is hunting me and I am running and hiding, or people have killed my family and are looking for me, or someone has beat up my friends and are coming for me. It is crazy!

But tonight I have been awake since 3:15 and it is now 5am! It is awful, I thought the sleepless nights came later on in pregnancy.

So is this what I have to look forward to for the rest of my 24 weeks pregnant?! Or anyone have any ideas so I can atleast rest some before I become ginormous and before the baby comes.

Flattop, Zoo, & Fireworks

It's been a while since I updated my blog, so I just have a bunch of randomness. Yesterday Heath and I tried to hike Flat Top. We didn't make it clear to the top just to the saddle...I thought I was going to die. I haven't really been doing much besides lying around and puking for the last four months, so I shouldn't be surprised.

This is me dying...gasping for air ;)


Baby Bump: 16 weeks
Yeah, I know it's not that impressive.

Jed and I went to the zoo on Friday, it is always fun to wander around and look at wild animals in cages.

The Polar Bear behind us moved for a second to roll over...that is the most moven't I have ever seen from it...he's kind of boring.

Over the Fourth of July Jed and I drove to Fairbanks. We stopped in Houston to grab some Sparklers...and I got to get some pictures with the gorilla and batman.

Fireworks are a little boring in Alaska because it is so light. So Jed and I did them at 9AM when he got home from work...then after we burned some sparklers...I drove back to Anchorage.

As far as a pregnancy update: I am feeling a little better, but still getting nauseous, but it's not nearly as bad as it was...just annoying.

I am craving hot jalapenos, especially hot jerky. I am also loving the squeeze cheese in a can.

**Also, Jed's brother just got there is slight possibility that we may come down for the wedding, depending what date they decide on.
