You look like you are glowing!

Today at work I was taking a patient back into the exam room to get his vitals and get him ready for the doctor to see and his wife was with him. His wife is also a patient there and I usually see her about once every three months because she comes in for her own appointments, her husbands, and she brings her mom for her appointments, so I have gotten to know her a little bit. Plus I talk to her on the phone with lab/xray results or whatever else I might need to discuss with her. Anyways we were in the exam room and I was asking her husband about his medications and out of no where she said, "Kathy there is something different about you!" I just kind of laughed and said really you think so? She said, "I don't know what it is but there is something diffferent about you." So I told her that over Christmas break I got a haircut, some new highlights, plus I got a cut with bangs that I have never had before and that that was probably what looked different about me. Then she said, "You know your hair does look different but there is something else. You just look like you are glowing! Your face is glowing! I really don't know what it is but you look like you are glowing!" She just kept saying it over and over. So I told her, "Yeah it might just be my new hair-do or maybe because I am pregnant!" And she freaked out!!! It was so funny! I couldn't stop laughing! She told me that the last time she came in she walked past me while I was at my desk and she thought the same thing about my face glowing but didn't say anything because I was on the phone. It is just so weird how people notice things like that. I really don't think I look different in any way. Well, except for a little gut but you wouldn't be able to see that in scrubs! Yesterday I weighed myself at work and thought I finally gained a pound but I weighed myself again today and I was down back to my original weight! I don't know what is going on I thought I was suppose to gain weight!?!?!?! The book said that I was suppose to gain atleasty 5-10 pounds by week 17 and on sunday I will be in week 16 and still haven't gained anything!

Happy New Year!!! Oh yeah, I am pregnant!

We spent the New Year holiday in Las Vegas visiting Levi's brother Art and Sister in law Jamie and their daughter Addison. It is always fun to see them because we don't get to see them much. We spent most of our time watching movies and playing boom blox on the wii. It was very relaxing! Just what we needed before we start the new year and have to get back to work and school. Plus our niece Addison is so fun to play with. When we were getting ready to come home Levi told her we were leaving and she took off her pj's got herself dressed and put on her boots and was ready to come home with us. We would have loved for her to come with us but I think her parents would have missed her too much!
2008 has just flown by us. We have been married for two and a half years now and it doesn't even feel like it. We are so excited to see what this new year will bring us. Levi will be finishing law school in may. Then he has to take the bar exam in July and just about that time I will be giving birth to our first child. Great planning huh?!?!?! We found out I was pregnant the end of October but decided to tell our families over the christmas holiday. I think we finally got the news to all our family so here is the announcement for all our friends! Now I am 13 weeks pregnant and feeling great. I haven't been sick at all. The only thing that really bothers me is the smell of different food, especially taquitos cooking. I haven't gained any weight and don't even feel pregnant, but we got to hear the babies heartbeat last week so I guess there is no denying that I am really pregnant. We are so excited to find out if it is a boy or girl in February!
