Due Date

What is the first thing people ask when you tell them you're pregnant?

So, when are you due?

Such a simple question, right?

Not for us! We don't have a due date. We think that I am approximately 16 weeks along.
The first time I went to see the doctor, we thought I was 10 weeks, but then they told me I was 5 weeks. When I went to see the doctor 4 weeks ago, we thought I was 11 weeks, but when the doctor measured me he said he thought I was at least 12 weeks.

We went to see the doctor again today and there was still plenty of confusion. They had me at 20 weeks in the computer because that's where I would be if I had really been 10 weeks at my first appointment. We reminded the doctor that I should be about 16 weeks according to what he told us 4 weeks ago. Then when he measured me today, he said something about how I could be close to 20 weeks!

Are you confused yet?

I sure am. We have an ultrasound scheduled in the middle of March which is when we'll find out the sex of the baby and FINALLY have a due date!!

Until then, I still don't know what to tell people when they ask me when the baby is due. Maybe I'll just say Julaugust...

It snowed here last night. It has been relatively warm today, though so it has all pretty much melted. We have had a nice break from the cold this week and I knew it would end soon. I keep wondering when the last snow of the season will be... Who knows? I definitely don't think this was it though.

The first snow of the season was in October. Alec and I went into the grocery store to get a few things for dinner and when we came out, it was snowing!! And it wasn't just snowing, there were HUGE flakes falling from the sky!! We had to take some pictures.

The blizzard didn't last too long so it only snowed a couple of inches, but it was definitely a good start to the snowy season. Now come on Spring!! I'm ready for you!

Well it has been forever since my last post, and SO much has been going on!! Let me list some of the happenings in our lives.

We were given callings in our ward. Alec and I teach the 7-year-olds in Primary. They are so much fun, even when they have just a tad too much energy... :)

We experienced the joys of an early winter... it snowed in the middle of October.

Alec carved his first pumpkin in 3 years!! I'm not sure why we didn't carve pumpkins last year, but the two years before that, he was in Mexico serving his mission! It was great fun. I'll post pictures another time.

We finished fall semester and were able to visit our wonderful families in California for Thanksgiving AND Christmas! We had such a great time.

We came back to Provo and experienced several car problems. We learned that we can easily function with one car... although going to campus early with Alec for his 7 AM class in freezing temperatures was not that fun...

We made it through the first 1/3 of winter semester! Now it's time for our first round of mid-terms! Woo hoo!!

I made it through my first trimester! Yes, that's right! I'm pregnant! I'm 14 weeks along, due in August. We couldn't be more excited, especially because our little babe will have so many cousins born around the same time!

That's about all that we've been up to! Just school, work, and a little bit of fun sprinkled in there! :)
