More updates for MD and callings

This past week has been so busy. I had my national convention here in STL for athletic trainers and I volunteered to work 40 hrs. Needless to say i was a bit tired. So here are the updates I promised everyone on the MD visit.

First when I went in for my 9 wk checkup I thought I might be farther along like 11-12 weeks but I was still off. I was at 14 weeks so I missed my entire first trimester with my MD! Everything looks good so far. He didn't really answer my questions about how to keep the baby inside me longer. He said we'd talk about that at a later date. I'm guessing because the baby won't be viable for a few more months, as well as he wants to see if it is even an issue before we talk about it and he probably doesn't want me to worry. Apparently he forgot that the entire time I was in the hospital I never really worried! Oh well it's been 2 years he's allowed to be a little foggy on that detail. He mentioned progesterone shots and taking steroids but that's about as far as we got. Oh and if all goes smoothly he won't force me to have a c-section.

Second
My new calling is so much fun. I rambled a bit but that should be no surprise to most of you. I don't know if the message of the lesson came across but I enjoyed it. Of course since my house is torn up I couldn't find the manual and wouldn't you know it, our printer was out of ink so I couldn't do much but read it online which doesn't work as well for me. Sunday morning Mike informed me that his manual was in the truck! So my awesome idea a ton of prep work failed, but at least I left room to grow. Wouldn't want people thinking I'm oh so fabulous on the first try!

Mike's brother was sealed last Saturday and we had his G'ma and Aunt staying with us. It was so much fun!! My hair was finally cut for the first time in 10 months! I kept meaning to go see my friend that has been cutting it for almost 2 years now but it never happened. SInce Mike's aunt is a stylist I cashed in a favor. It's colored again also and I love the blond back in my hair.
(on a complete side note as I'm typing this Isabel has been singing in her room for 10 minutes...it's so cute!) They sealing was so funny, my poor brother in law wanted some serious action when it came time to kiss and his bride wasn't quite wanting that much so she pulled away and he was leaning in so far he had to catch himself...I hate to embaress them if they even read this but it was SO FUNNY! Then the sealer asked them to redo it when they stood up and it was the same. He sucked her face off the WHOLE night. Lets just say that they couldn't wait and her tiarra never made it to the reception....
While we were waiting for them to come out of the temple Izzy bumped into her G'pa and fell over and reopened her scrape on her knee. Now I don't usually pick her up when she's mildly hurt but for some reason I did and I kept saying "you're ok, you're ok" well I looked down and she was dripping blood. I also noticed that on my light green silk dress I had a blood stain 3 inches by 2 inches in the center of my dress up on my chest. There was NO hiding it. Not really sure what to do at this point I helped get Izzy cleaned up and Mike's aunt told me to head to the annex and use water to wash it off. So off to the annex I go to take off my dress and wash it out. They had some mild soap so I was able to wash if off. I was worried about a water stain...I know as if water was worse then blood....after about 10 minutes I had the dress clean. Everyone was very impressed that it came out. The groomsmen were beside themselves!
Needless to say I changed before the reception. So congrats to Jamison and Sheri...and thanks for an interesting weekend!

That's funny that you make fun of your brother-in-law for being... shall we say 'enthusiastic' about his special day. I remember another wedding where a couple were a bit 'enthusiastic.' And if we hadn't needed to get those frozen ravioli from the freezer in your room (and the housekeeper hadn't been so intent on letting us tease you) we never would have known because you certainly were not taking off your tiara...

by the way, tell Jameson congratulations for me. He's such a sweet guy.

sounds like you have had some interesting events lately :) At least you can never say it is boring for you! Glad to hear the MD update & impressed you got the stain out...although the two topics rambling together are quite interesting.. I can almost hear your voice as I read the entry. :)I miss you so much!~~

For the record, I may have been 'enthusiastic' but we did not actually do anything before the reception, Kate had me to worked up.... It's nice to know that with all the money we made the hotel, the housekeeper was still against me!

Hahaha, you know I would have been laughing. But I do feel bad for you. That would stink to get your dress dirty like that.

I haven't checked your blog in a while. Congrats on the new baby! I'm excited for you!

I had you all worked up? I believe Mike had you all worked up. You make me laugh!

HOW on earth did you miss the first trimester? I couldn't have not noticed being pregnant if I had wanted to, and believe me - there were definitely times I've wanted to!

When are you due???
