Ultrasound Update

So some people have asked to hear about the ultrasound we had this past Monday. Well, after me drinking over 2 gallons of water every day last week, the ultrasound showed that the amniotic fluid had increased a little, but not enough for me to stop forcing the liquids. I was a 7 last Monday now I'm a 9 - she said I should be somewhere around 12 to 15 (centimeters I think). So I'm back to drinking drinking drinking!!! My Dr. said she's not worried and was glad to see the levels had gone up, but she just wants to keep a close eye on things, so we scheduled another ultrasound for next Monday. She also said, "if I had so choose, I'd have to say I'm about 80% sure you have a little girl, but don't go out and buy pink yet!!" We hope that % goes up as well during the next ultrasound!! :)

Memories game

Here are the directions:
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my blog's comments.


So Tyson and I went in to get another ultrasound today. After waiting for an hour after the scheduled appointment we finally got to see our baby again. We were hoping to find out the gender of the baby, but the stinker was all curled up and we couldn't get a good shot - must be shy;) We did get to see the baby yawn though and see it kick from the outside of my belly through my shirt for the first time as well. Also, Dr. Fillerup said I had a low amount of amniotic fluid and that I needed to at least triple my liquid intake! She said to to that for a week and then she would do another ultrasound - we made another appointment for next Monday morning - keep your fingers crossed! Talk about unsettling - sorry baby for not drinking as much water as I should have. I've always had a hard time getting enough water everyday, but I thought I was doing better than I was. So far today, I've had about 160+ oz. of water and the day's not even over - I seriously think I might blow up!!! Any suggestions on how to get way more liquid without feeling miserable???

Our move - we're out of here!!!

We are done with apartment life!!! Thank you SO much to all of you who helped us move!!! Tyson's brother in law Brien and his family came out on Friday and helped us with all the boxes and little stuff and "the Crew" came Saturday morning to move the big stuff. We were done by around 1:30 so not too bad!! Tyson and I spent the rest of the day unpacking some stuff and Tyson even planted our garden - that night!! We were exhausted!! I wish I would have gotten pictures of everyone on Saturday, but I was a little distracted with all the last minute random packing and cleaning. Thanks anyway everyone - we REALLY appreciate your help!!! So far, we love the house and the neighbors are - ok. We went to church Sunday and everyone seemed really nice. I'll post pictures of the house once we have everything situated. AHHHH! I can't tell which I hate worse - packing or unpacking!!!

See ya North Street Apartments!! We're out of here!!
