Baby update...and a few others

Well, I finally went to the doc yesterday....I say finally because it has been a LONG 4 weeks:) I got to hear the heartbeat which was around 150 and I could hear the baby moving around alot. It was such a thrill to hear that heartbeat. It made it all kinda sink in. I had lost a pound..HA HA! I actually lost almost 30 pounds the first 5 months I was pregnant with Parker. I don't think that is going to happen this time. I am still really nauseated and have gotten sick a few times. TMI I know. I go back on February 12th and Wes and Lauren find out what they are having on the 11th of February. I CAN'T WAIT!

My mother had knee replacement surgery today and it was a success. She is not feeling good at the moment but she knows that in the long run this is the best thing that could have ever happened to her. She will be moving in with David, Parker and myself for 2 weeks after she gets out of the hospital. Never thought I would have a visitor for that long:-) It will be nice helping her get better though.

As I had previously mentioned in a different post, my friend Stephanie was not doing well. I am sad to say that on Friday, Jan. 11th she slipped off to heaven in her sleep. While I know she is in a better place, I miss her terribly. She was an amazing friend. There were so many people at her visitation and funeral! She touch many lives. For those of you with daughters, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get them the Guardasil shot. It can prevent cervical cancer!!! I will be on this soap box for a long time, probably the rest of my life.
