I do apologize to all of our loyal blog followers for the lack of updates this winter. Between Eric being busier, me being pregnant and in season, and two little ones keeping us always on the move this got moved to a lower priority. But with the superbowl on and me only needing to pay attention to the commercials I thought it was time to download all the photos on my phone and update the blog! I promise once the new baby arrives I'll post more!!
I have always heard that every pregnancy was different but aside from different morning sickness symptoms and a different delivery my pregnancies with both Robert and Izzy were pretty similar. I should have known when I couldn't match the morning sickness symptoms this time around to either of the other two that I was in for a different experience. This by far has been my hardest pregnancy and after more frequent doctor trips, including a couple of hours in labor & delivery last night, I am now just hoping to make it as close to my due date as possible and avoid bedrest. Right now my goal is to just avoid bedrest through our confernce meet February 14-16 and then we will go from there. Luckily I have a great team and between my athletes and the other coaches I am being well taken care of and think it is more the hot, humid environment that my uterus doesn't like. The good news is that the baby is doing great and is right on track...to be a big baby like his siblings. I believe he is just trying to teach me that I can't always do everything and sometimes need to ask for help...even if that means it might not all get done to my liking.

So that sums up what we've been up to since our last post and the timing is perfect as the football game just ended and a sign for me to go to bed. We'll try to post again before the baby but if it doesn't happen know that once our little boy arrives we will definitely post again.
