33 Weeks

I have been really sick for a week and a half now. The baby is fine, but I'm not. One day I'm ok and the next I cant keep food in my stomach and I have absolutely no energy. The doctor thought it was my gallbladder, but we did a sonogram and it was fine. I have tried everything; peppermint, licorice, ginger root, carrot juice, and pepto blismal. I go again to the doctor on Thursday, so maybe she can shed some more light on this.
For curiosity's sake I have 2 questions for those who read this. 1. To circumcise or not circumcise? We already have our mind set on what we want to do, but just wondering. and 2. To immunize our baby or not to immunize?
Congrats to Coren and the Clines' family. They had the baby Tuesday at 4:55. Robert Oscar Clines. I think he was like 8 lbs 12 oz or something like that. So we cant wait to see him, and hope Coren recovers quickly.
This past week Zach and Codi came down with Xander, so it was great to see them. He is growing to fast. We went to the farm with Chase and his girlfriend Amy and it was fun, well for them, I was trying to get better and was for a day. But Elliott put on a show for us and I am dying to put the picture up, but he will kill me if I do. But lets just say, he would be an ugly girl!!

Ready for Baby

I went to the doctor today and my blood sugars have been good. I dont have to test my blood anymore. I havent gained any weight in 2 weeks, so that is good. The baby's heartbeat is good and I am measuring normal. I am having to track how long the baby kicks/moves 10 times. Tonight he moved 10 times in 15 mins. So he moves a lot after I eat. We started Lamaze class tonight and it was very informative. Here is a picture of our bedding and our stroller. We are getting closer to being ready for him to come. Elliott has interviewed for the 3rd time with Hilton, and we are still waiting for them to interview another guy then they will call us. So keep him in your prayers. He really wants/needs this job.

Baby Shower

I had the best baby shower on Saturday. Mindy and Rhonda threw it for me. The cakes were so great. The one we can eat matched the baby's bedding, which we are going to buy this week, I 'm so excited. And the diaper cake had so many cute toys and things on it. There was a great turn out. I couldnt believe how many people came. It was wonderful seeing everyone again. I got tons of great stuff and so many cute outfits, that I can not wait to put him in. A few people put their two-cents in for the baby's name. My mom said Oscar Elmer, after both of my grandfathers, and Elliott's grandmother likes Grant Garland. I think it is cute, but we already have a name, and yes you are still going to have to wait till he is born. Many, MANY thanks to Rhonda, Mindy and my mom for a terrific shower!
