Its a boy!

Although last week was a very traumatizing event for me and it made me more homesick than ever, I was excited to hear we are having a boy! His name will be Case. We have a middle name but we aren't releasing it yet! Sam was elated, as you can imagine. He has a habit now of talking to the belly. He cannot feel him move but I feel him move all the time now! My body is changing so much that its freaking me out! I get sore from running now, I constantly feel as if I have to urinate which makes running difficult and extrememly uncomfortable, but I know I need to keep going. I have also had some nerve problems and leg swelling in just one leg, believe it or not, running is the only thing that keeps the swelling down and the leg aches to a minimum! Ok so enough about the running.

My friend Chelsey challenged me to the 8 weeks to a better you. I feel its a safe and easy way to stay healthy and to become a better person spiritually! So I embark on this event starting today! Wish me luck peeps!

My computer broke... again. Definetly not something that I wanted to happen! Who knows when or if it will ever be fixed, luckily there is a library here in town! On a happier note, Sam is officially on the wire crew. For those of you wondering what the wire crew is.... it means he is on his way to becoming a Journeyman! We're SO excited! Even when it means he has to get up and 3 in the morning to fix a storm damage. The guys he works with like him so much that he was pulled from framing to wire, and put on the oncall list. It may seem like a really insignificant thing but its VERY good for us! He's doing so awesome, everyone tells me he's one of the smartest guys they've ever seen come through. He would kill me if he knew I was saying anything about him, but I just am proud of him!

The weather here has been insane. We went from 80 degrees to 15 overnight. By 9pm last night all our pipes were frozen inside the trailer, meaning NO WATER! The heater to our trailer is also having some issues, so you can imagine how cold we have been! It is an adventure to say the least! On the plus side of bad weather. Sam has had the days off because the wind has been ripping! (which means danger)

Still no baby bump! I'm over 16 weeks now! Next Wednesday I get to have my ultrasound! Hopefully they will be able to tell me what we're having! We're super excited.
