The storms have also brought up another major issue. Since we have so much extra money lying around these days (yeah right!) something else has to go wrong.Right? Last weekend there was a big storm. The next day as I walked past the window I saw something strange. I went out to take a closer look. A huge branch off my tree had fallen down. I had been a little worried about this tree. A few branches are hanging over the neighbors roof. I knew I had to do something soon. I held my breathe every time a big storm came. This time I got lucky and it was just a warning of what could happen. The branch fell right between the houses and did not do any damage. Thank you God for looking over me that night! I knew I was no longer able to procrastinate! I got two quotes from companies to trim vs remove. (neither are cheap options). Ultimately it's too much of a liability and the tree is coming down on Monday. A huge expense I wasn't planing on, but that's life! I'll work it out somehow!
Before we decided the tree was coming down, my lovely husband decided he needed to borrow a chain saw to cut up and remove the fallen branch. Nice in theory. I just think it's hilarious that he puts off yard work as long as possible but gets up early on a Sunday to take care of the tree. Lets be honest....he just wanted to play with the chainsaw! He cut it in to pieces and yet has not removed or done anything with a single one! He also didn't get any of the other yard work done that day! But he got to play with the chainsaw! It will all get removed with the rest of the tree, thank goodness. Lets just pray that I am saving myself more money and heartache in the future by removing it now!
Here is a couple pictures to show the tree and my husband playing with power tools!
I can't believe I am already halfway through my pregnancy! I really can't believe that in the same amount of time that I've been pregnant, which has gone so fast, I will actually have the baby! Crazy!
Luckily I've been feeling really good. No nausea or vomiting. I have my old eating habits back. Right about the time I started feeling back to normal, the body aches kicked in. My lower back and hips have been killing me. I expected this later on in the pregnancy not at 5 months. I think it's because I work on my feet all day. Normally I am used to it but with all my bones shifting it's been hard. I don't know how I'm going to make it when I am 9-10 months and huge!
We are still stuck on names. We haven't been discussing it much since we don't agree on anything.
I have been feeling him move more and more. It is more subtle than I thought it would be. I am so excited to feel him but I know it will come a time he is not so subtle and I wish he would stop! The one time I always know I will feel him is in the morning. He does not like my electric toothbrush. I don't know if it's the sound or the vibration but he freaks out every time. He could also be just like his Mama and not be a morning person and is pissed I am waking him up...."Just 5 more minutes Mom!" like a baby snooze button.
Other than that not much has been going on. Just plugging along, the time is flying by! I was wanting to blog at least once a week there just hasn't been much to report.

I am 16 weeks pregnant today. Oh how the time is flying by! Just thought I'd update you on how it's going!...
Luckily for me and our future children I am feeling much better! I don't know if I could have done this again if I was going to be as sick as I was the whole time! So I am still exhausted all the time but at least the nausea is minimal, and there has been no vomiting in weeks! Yippee!!
We are still at a complete standstill for names. We can't agree on anything! Jeremy likes traditional, I like unique names. We go round and round about it. I would take him more seriously if he actually had real suggestions. Not names like Jackie Chan Tan, Wolverine, and Spike! Yes, these are all real suggestions from lovely husband! :p
I am having some of the craziest dreams I have ever had in my life! They are so vivid and real. It's like watching a movie in my sleep every night. I don't ever get a very restful sleep, but I always have good stories in the morning to tell Jeremy. One night it was this whole long story about a day when the sun and moon were up at the same time. Then aliens came down and took over the planet and our government. They wanted to run it peacefully as long as we cooperated and let them do it their way. Plus they looked like giant house cats. It was crazy. At least I have a good imagination! :)
One thing I find odd about pregnancy is how everyone automatically assumes the right to judge everything I do. What I eat, drink, where I go, what I do. That everyone wants to tell me all of their or their friends birth horror stories. That people think it is totally OK to critique your baby name choices because you haven't picked it for sure yet. If we do pick that name I will always remember that crappy things you said about it so keep your opinion to yourself! Didn't your Mama teach you if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all!!?
I have felt some flutters but nothing officially the baby, but I can't wait!
Here is the 4 month photo update. I am finally starting to look pregnant instead just fat(Although several people told me I don't even look pregnant! Just so you know NEVER tell a woman this unless she is actually NOT pregnant or trying to hide the pregnancy. At this point most women are proud of their mini baby bump and want you to acknowledge it!)

We are so truly excited to be having a baby boy! Especially since so far he is a very healthy baby! I am so ready to start planning, decorating, and shopping! It's going to be so fun! Now we just have to have the name debate! This is going to be difficult!

I am 9 weeks pregnant today. After telling close friends and family in person, finally posting the big news on facebook, now it's no longer a secret. Which is good because I don't know how much longer it would have been a secret physically. I feel huge even though other than some weight gain, bloating, and my boobs being a full cup size bigger there are not many outward changes. The baby is the size of a grape and has reached fetus status. This is nice that the pictures I show Jeremy of what our baby would look like are not nearly as freaky to him. Although he is a little disappointed that the "embryonic tail" has disappeared! He thought our baby having a tail was cool!! I am so looking forward to our first appointment next week. I think that seeing our baby on the screen will really make it real! I have been pretty sick and exhausted recently. Unfortunately it keeps getting worse. I am hoping that I will be one of the lucky ones whose sickness ends with the first trimester. No matter what I take all of the negative symptoms as good sign that everything that is supposed to be happening is happening!
