I had my first doctor appointment

A few weeks ago I had my first doctor appointment. I was really nervous cause I didn't know what they were going to do or what to expect. Well we actually got to hear the baby's heart beat. That was a special moment. I wish I could hear it every day. It would make it more real on a daily bases. I also had to get blood taken out which was horrible, I hate needles, I am hoping by the end of pregnancy I am used to getting poked if not I am in for a rude awakening on the day of labor. 

I am no longer experiencing morning sickness, YAY! I cannot tell you how happy I am about this. I thought I was going to die. I was the worst feeling in the world, I do not wish it on anyone. I am able to eat just about anything. The crazy thing is that lately I have been craving ethnic food like Greek and Lebanese food. When I got pregnant I thought I would not want to be eating those foods but I wish I could have them every day. The other day Jon came home from work and I was having a horrible day and he surprised me with flowers and told me to get ready cause he was taking me to my favorite Lebanese Restaurant in Salt Lake City called Mazza. I love that place. He had read my mind cause just that day I was thinking to myself how good that would be. The other food I am really craving is sushi which I have gone to a few time but can only have the vegetable ones but who cares.

Well I have found out that everyone is pregnant right now. Its so funny. I think most of the girls from back home that I grew up going to church with are all pregnant and due with in 3-4 of me. Its crazy. Oh and then one of my husband's mission companion who lives near and we have been hanging out with him and his wife, well she is exactly 4 weeks behind me. Which is good cause everything she is going thru I am going thru and we even have the same doctor.

Ok one more thing I have to update you on since I haven't been keeping this up to date. Jon and I have received callings in our ward. Jon is the new secretary for the elders quorum and I am one of the teachers for the Sunbeam class. They have 3 teachers in there and I wasn't sure why until I went to it last Sunday. It was crazy. I told my mother-in-law that I think they are trying to make me inactive or something. It was too much for me to handle, had I been in that calling before getting pregnant I would NOT be pregnant right now cause I would have really thought about having children. The little girls are so sweet but the boys are just way too much to handle.

My brother Aaron came to visit

So my wonderful brother came to visit at the end of September. Let me tell you I was so happy to hear him say he was coming out to visit. I really was feeling home sick and wanted to see someone from back home. So this was a treat for me. He had a blast while he was out here and so did we. I love seeing my family, I love and miss them so much.

My brother came to visit.

My brother Aaron came to visit me. I was so excited, he came at a very good time cause the stores are still not up and we had tons of time to spend together. Plus, I was feeling home sick and so it made me feel better. We all had so much fun having him around. We took him to The Pie Pizzeria in Salt Lake City. Its was cool cause its got that college vibe.
