New Addition to the House!
Sorry I’ve been kinda blah about updating lately. A lot has been going on. My two friends from home, Melissa (Wisconsin) and Kelsea (Iowa) were up here visiting for about 3 weeks. It was a crazy time but also very very fun! :D We had some crazy times on our trip over the 4th of July weekend–we drove 2 1/2 hours to Denali National Park to see Mount McKinley. Alas, we were part of the 70% that didn’t see it because of the weather being too cloudy and rainy. Then we continued our journey another 4 hours south to Anchorage where we stayed on the army base there and camped for a night. We took a trip to the Alaska Zoo (check out last blog!) and then took the 6 1/2 hour trip back home to Fairbanks/Ft. Wainwright.
The girls were here for another week after that and during that time, guess what? Found out I am pregnant! :cheerful: I took two home pregnancy tests in the same day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon and they both said “Pregnant”. (I get the digital ones that actually say the words ) Then the next day John and I went to the hospital to take an “official” test and pee in a cup for the wonderful nurses there. After calling them and hounding them for my results that day, they told me it was a “weak positive” so I had to come back in 48 hours to do another one. :rolleyes: So I went back that Friday and did another test. STILL weak. Went back in this last Monday and finally it came back a normal positive. So they signed me up for my first appointment, but it’s a week from tomorrow and it’s a group thing. :confused: How stupid does that sound? We have to go through a sort-of class thing where they tell us what we should and shouldn’t do while pregnant, what medicines we can take, etc and then we get some one-on-one time with our nurse. I told John he was coming with me. lol
I really really want to update soon, with a new layout and new content… I just don’t know what to do. Any ideas that can spark some inspiration for me? That would be awesome! :D
