Baby #2 Belly Pics Update

      I haven't really been keeping up with much on this blog very well and that includes this pregnancy.  I do like having a record of everything though and seeing the difference between how I am now and where I was with Anna has been interesting.  Losing weight and staying in shape has really benefited me this pregnancy as I've tried to keep up with that.  Being so sick in the first trimester made it easy to not gain any weight, and in fact I lost some, but I wasn't able to work out the way I was used to and that's been hard.  I think I'm still in a good place, but I'm still trying to figure out the best ways to get a good pregnancy workouts.  Anyway, since I haven't posted any yet, I have lots of pictures to share, so here ya go!

      Everything has been going well and I'm feeling pretty good.  Tired most of the time, but good.  We're planning on a Birth Center birth this time around since living in a condo where space is limited and our neighbors are just so much closer.  I just feel like it will stress me out and I'd rather be more comfortable.  It's so crazy that we're halfway through this pregnancy! February and this baby will be here before you know it.

2015 Update #2

      Since coming out of the first trimester, I finally started feeling better at around 13 or 14 weeks.  The first trimester was pretty rough, especially compared with my pregnancy with Anna.  With Anna, I had really just morning sickness most of the time.  This little one had me feeling sick all day long.  I could hardly eat, but still tried because I knew I needed to.  Sunday's still seem to give me a hard time.  I've only had two good ones so far. I think it's because I have to get up and get ready so much earlier than usual.  Hopefully, I'll  have more good Sunday's from now on.

       Being sick put a damper on our Summer and we didn't do a lot, but as soon as I started feeling better, I wanted to make sure we did as much as we could.  In other words, I packed our weekends full.  Haha.  One Saturday we took Anna bowling for the first time.  I lost in the worst way, but we had so much fun and will definitely do it again.

      We went to the Zoo and it was a blast!  They had statue and animatronic dinosaurs all over the park and it was really fun for all of us to see them.  We got there later than we planned (probably my fault), but we managed to spend hours seeing all the dinosaurs and animals and there was still more we could have seen.  But it was sooooo hot! Before we left we made sure to let Anna go on the carousel and we all went on the little African Safari train. 

      I also when with the Youth in our Ward to float along the Provo River.  Sounds nice and relaxing right.  Well, not so much.  Haha.  There weren't enough tubes for everyone and another leader and I shared a larger tube.  Unfortunately, that tube had a hole in it and was deflating the longer we were on it.  If we had to walk it was a little hard because the current was so quick it was hard to keep up.  It's sad because I had hurt my toe and it hurt every time I took a step on it.  Eventually, we made it work and me and few of the Youth got it out at a good stopping point.  I was actually just released from the Young Womens and put in as an Activity Day leader.  I'll miss Young Women for sure, it felt like I was just getting the hang of things.  Hopefully, I'll be able to do well with this new calling.

      We got a new Washer & Dryer!!!!  It's been glorious.  The set we had was a hand-me-down from Ty's grandparents and we did really well with it for a long time.  In December the dryer stopped heating up and we had to use a laundromat.  We bought a cheap used one to replace it, but it had to be intensely cleaned and then Ty noticed that burned spots on his white church shirts.  We decided to finally just buy a brand new set.  We love them! Laundry takes so much less time and our energy bill is a lot lower than it used to be.

      The biggest thing we've been up to lately in school.  Preschool for Anna.  Since she wasn't showing interest in potty training (which has drastically changed in the last couple of weeks), I decided to do home Preschool.  We don't spend a lot of time since she really is so smart and knows all the things I'm teaching (and more) anyway.  However, we are working on her handwriting and fine motor skills and she's been doing great.  I seriously wouldn't be surprised if she skips second year of Preschool and goes straight into Kindergarten next year.

      Ty has also been busy with work and school.  With luck, but especially hard work, he will hopefully be done by the end of October.  The class he is in now has been very information heavy and taken a long time to get through, but he's amazing and almost finished.  I'm so proud of him and how much he's been able to accomplish.  Having this degree will absolutely mean good things for our family, but just as much for him, personally.  He's a pretty awesome guy and we just love him around here.

      We find out the gender of our baby tomorrow!!  I'm very excited! And anxious.  Haha.  It seems all of the friends I have who are also pregnant have found out what they are having already and I'm so ready to find out.  I was pretty confident before I knew what we were having, but now I'm not so sure.  We'll be so happy either way.  I'm just ready to know and give them a name.
