Life at twenty one.

I had always dreamed but never really thought at 21 I would

be sealed to by best friend in the temple for eternity.

be paying off our very own home
have the great job that I do-have the chance to work under great doctors and learn so much from them

and expecting our first child in 9 weeks!

I always tried to imagine what my life would be like
when I "grew up."
I had no idea it would be this great.
oh. and it's mostly because of this guy right here...

Week 29

Week 29. Just about 10 more weeks to go!
It's crazy how fast it goes by.
This week hasn't been to bad.
Feeling a little puffy in the face...
Noticed some weight gain...
typical pregnancy right?
We tried some yard selling this weekend to find some things but we didn't find anything but old people selling "antiques."
We did go to a yard sell and it ended up being Broc's co-worker who was selling a bunch of baby items..clothes mostly!
We ended up picking through some and got a good deal...
Later that afternoon he texted Broc and said I have two trash bags full if you wife doesn't want them I'm just going to take them to the DI.
So we took them! Free clothes? Heck yes! I think we will be set on clothes for a while with this bag and then the bag Broc's sister is bring down when she comes to visit!
2 years worth of her little girl clothes!
So thankful for all the free items! Being pregnant is so stressful sometimes.

My time for working is ending soon..My last day of work is Aug, 31...if I go that long.
I worry about insurance, bills, food, and ect.
I guess that never ends!
Well, thats it for this week.

Putting my shoes on is getting harder
Shaving my legs...impossible
Seeing my legs while standing...impossible
Have a great week!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day! I wasn't able to spend it with my dad because we are on two different sides of the country, but I am always reminded of what a great father he is to me! He has done so much for me. I will always be his little girl. Thanks for all you have done!

We spent the day at Broc's parents house and Skyped with Brittany! We miss her!
Last night, we were on the couch watching TV. I fell asleep as usual and I found this on Broc's phone.
How cute is our little family.
Only missing one little girl!

Pregnancy week 28!

Pregnancy week 28. I loving being in these later weeks of pregnancy. I actually feel and look pregnant! Lexi is a mover! She is always rolling around and kicking me. I love it. Today while we were at Broc's parents house I let his brother and sister watch her roll around-Joclynn made me feel very good when she said, "You don't have any stretch marks!"
Thank you! :)

21 years baby!

21 baby!
I feel so old!

Don't worry, its only cream soda!
Thanks babe for a great birthday!
I took the day off yesterday because who works on their birthday? We spent the night going bowling...where I WON- the first game anyway. Only by a point.
Broc of course beat me with his new high score of 162 and I don't even think I made it to 90.
It was still a blast! Then we just went to dinner, came home, and relaxed.
Any day I get to spend with Broc is a great day! So lucky to have him for the rest of eternity!

26 weeks

26 Weeks pregnant! One less week to go. This week was full of everything! We had an appointment on Tuesday and when the doctor went to measure my stomach I was only measuring about 23 CM and I was supposed to be more 26CM. So he ordered an ultrasound for later that day to make sure Lexi was growing right. After worrying all day and praying that everything would be was!
She is doing great! She is actually measuring a week bigger and weighs about 2 pounds! So, I guess she was just laying low that morning! Little stinker. We didn't get many pictures from that ultrasound because it was last minute. Bummer, but she is still cute as can be!  Friday I was working all day and she wasn't in her normal routine I noticed. I didn't think much of it and decided to drink a coke to see if that gets her moving...because it usually does. Nope, nothing still to much. So of course I freaked out! Wouldn't you? I decided to wait until the next morning to see how the night went. She still didn't move alot that night and Broc was out of town camping. I just said a prayer that I would know what to do and went to sleep. Broc came home the next morning and I was going to go in to get checked to make sure she was doing okay. I had tried laying on my left side, caffeine, and drinking sweet drinks but she was out of it! I didn't really want to go to the ER because it was a Saturday but I didn't have much of a choice! But wait! I do! I work in a doctors office! So a doctor I work with is an OB doctor and was working that Saturday so I just called up the clinic and decided that would be much better...and cheaper! He told me to continue to count kicks and drink some more sweet drinks. So of course any excuse to drink a Mountain Dew I will. After 2 glasses..she wasn't very active. I was a mess all morning! 
But I guess she was just sleepy because about 2 hours later she started kicking so much..and hasn't stopped. I guess a week of no caffeine and your baby doesn't know what to do! Glad to say..she is okay!
