Today I had my 3rd Dr. appointment. It went very well. The heartbeat sounded stronger and louder than the last time. We also scheduled the gender ultrasound! On July 8th we'll know if this little guy is a boy/girl. We are so excited and we will keep you posted!

This picture was taken when I was 16 weeks and 4 days along. Not much has changed in the past couple of weeks. I have another Dr. appointment on Thursday, so I'm excited to find out how the baby is doing and schedule an ultrasound to discover the baby's gender =)

A recent post by a friend reminded me that I forgot a very important post. A couple of weeks ago I finished reading one of the best books I have ever read. It was The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I bought the book a month ago with some hesitation because I am not a huge science fiction fan. I read the first few chapters and got bored with it so I put it down for a few weeks. A friend of mine read the book so I asked her what she thought of it. She said it was really good after the first 100 pages. So I picked up the book again and read the last 600 pages in 2 days. I simply could not put it down. It was amazing! Stephenie Meyer is also the author of the Twilight series which I LOVE. The Host was different, but in a very good way. I love her style of writing, it is absolutely enthralling and I can't wait to read more!!!

There is a fire in Northern California (known as the Humboldt Fire) that is currently threatening my hometown of Paradise. Thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes and the town has been closed. There have already been many homes destroyed as high winds are pushing it farther into the town. My family is out of town and unable to save their valuables. Please keep my family and the town of Paradise as well as the hard-working fire department in your prayers.

Its official, I am now in the 2nd trimester! Can I just say WOW, it is amazing what one week can do. Last week you could hardly notice that I am expecting. This week the baby has made its presence more apparent. I am now 14 weeks along and I am so thrilled that I am finally beginning to show. The baby measures measures at 3 1/2 inches (about the size of a lemon) and weighs 1 1/2 ounces.
