The next weigh in

So I had a bad experience at the OB office on Friday. It was going to be just a normal visit, but then they informed me that I had a 2700 dollar o-pay. No Good. So I explained to the secretary that I just needed to talk to the financial counselor, so she put me on the waiting list. ONE HOUR AND 20 MINUTES LATER... I got to see the doctor and they just told me that I can deal with the co-pay next time.

I am starting to dread these appointments, not only for the co-pay drama, but for the weigh in time. I know that I am going to gain weight, but there is something about seeing the numbers on the scale that scares me.
I know I a growing another human inside of me....
I know that I am going to gain weight....
My genetics say I should gain a ton of weight....
I started off loosing weigh because of all the nausea...
So to summarize I am gaining... the healthy way (smile)

Is this big?

So I am ready to admit that I have a belly. I am 23 weeks... translation 5 months and some change. Two weeks ago I was sleeping and woke myself up because I was laying on my stomach and it started hurting. I have a belly. I really want to catalog the growth! James thinks that doing it once a week is too frequently. What do you think?
Here is 23 weeks....

We never did yard work before

So I am honestly not sure why we started now. You know that bad feeling you get when you go into Home Depot for one 5 dollar item and come out with 200 dollars worth of stuff and a whole days worth of projects to do. That was how our day started. We went in for lawn mover oil and came out with a leaf sucker, hedge trimmer, plants, trash can, file holders (that we're on sale and too good of a deal to pass up) and a swiffer. Jeff and Ev got the swiffer when we left because it would have cost us more to ship it than it would be to buy a new one. N-E-Ways: I planted new plants around the mail box.


James did the mowing and blowing while I did the sucking :P.

All in all we got a lot done! we even met some neighbors!

We are still alive

So I know that we have been busy and here is what we have been up to......
We moved into our new house with some much needed help from some very dear friends.
Thanks Jeff and Carlos and Jerry.

Then the next weekend my family came out and we did a ton of tourist stuff! Including going to Stone Mountain, Cracker Barrel, walked Centennial Park, Flying Biscuit, Rolling Bones BBQ, and don't forget COSTCO and IKEA (they are staples in any town). We also saw the Coke Factory.

James didn't like this one very much.

And Lastly we did the Martin Luther King Museum.

And in case you haven't heard..... note the arrow

Its a boy.
I am getting a little bigger. I can't suck in the belly anymore.
And the baby is moving and Last night James felt him move for the first time!
God is so amazing! I have a miracle growing inside of me.

Twoooooo Weeekkkss!!1

(james here)

Okay so we are bad bloggers. Two weeks without a blog entry. You can blame that on the move. Which went pretty well considering we had me, lys (who's pregnant) and Jeff. Without him at the beginning and carlos and jerry at the end. We would still be unloading our truck today. So thank you from deep within my muscles.

Then our family from Cali came in Saturday so we spent the day in the city (after they all got up, gotta love the time difference). Of course what do out of towners do in the ATL. They go to the world of coke. So since we know we'll be going there like 5 more times in the next year, we ponied up for the passes. Why not? If we get thirsy we can always stop in for soda from Poland or Tanzania. Never know what the mood brings.

Coke or Pepsi? Or for those of you that think outside conventionalism...RC cola, shasta, supermarket brand, kofola, or Jones? On a hot day, with lots of ice and craving something sweet to drink...what do you like to sip?
