So as you know, today was supposed to be the day we find out what we are having. Well, we got to our doctor's appointment and apparently my doctor forgot to place an order for me to have the ultrasound. Let me explain, the military facility that I have my appointments at don't have enough technicians so they have to call our insurance company and put out an order for the ultrasound. The insurance comp. then calls me and tells me where to go (an outside source not on base). She forgot to make the call. And with Richard leaving on Friday to go to California for a month we will not be finding out until september. I was/am heartbroken. I cried. Probably made the doctor uncomfortable but I was upset. So needless to say we still don't know. But on the other hand the baby is doing great. He/she is right on schedule, with a heartbeat of 150. I can't wait for movement.

Okay so being pregnant I have all this time to think, well mostly it's just my mind wandering, and lately one place it wanders the most is my past and all of my friends old and new. I won't go into a huge sob story but about 4 years ago someone who I thought I was dear friends with didn't have the courage to call and ask for help so instead got evicted from his apartment which mean't all my belongings that I had so faithfully stored with him were too evicted. And in the world or evicitions that means thrown away not able to retrieve. In those belongings were my 2 scrapbooks that I had made with every picture I ever owned and a few journals. Yes, I lost a lot of things but out of everything those make my sad the most. So during all my wanderings I began to think, "why not just ask your friends?" So I ask each of you, if you have any memories/pictures of me/us I would be eternally grateful if you shared them with me. I am gonna start to put a time line together so my children have something to read about. I would love any story or stories. I am truly blessed with an abundance of friends in my life. I am grateful for each and every one of you, and look forward to the times when our paths cross again.

Baby Names!

Alright, 8 days and counting. One of my many requests was to have baby names picked out when we go to our next doctor's appointment. So Richard and I sat down yesterday and decided on two. They came so easily. I picked the girls name and he picked the boys name. Also we looked up on the web site to check to see how popular the names were. Needless to say they have very good odds. These are the names we love. For a girl MADISON SUSAN (Susan is Richards moms name) and for a boy JACKSON LEE (lee is richards middle name). It finally feels real. I am so super excited to find out what we are having. Tell me what you think.

Just checkin in!!

So I need to apologize, it has been almost a month since I last posted. I don't have any exciting news, or fun stories. Life here in Alaska is pretty dull right now. We are just living day to day because being in the military that is all you are allowed to live. You never know what the next day will have in store.

However, in two weeks (July 28) we go in for our 20 week visit and that my friends is the fun one. We get to find out what we will be having. You better believe we will have a post for that day. So until then, everyone take care and have a freakin fantastic week.
