Week 24-26

Let me first tell you that freaking out is just kind of what I do. I'm actually pretty good at it by this point in my life. With that being said, let me tell you a little about my Vegas freak out. 

After having our big ultrasound to make sure you are doing great and growing-which you are-we were enlightened on the healthcare in Vegas. To put it in a nutshell, Vegas hospitals are struggling. In fact, when we told our doctor in Utah that we were moving here he asked us if we were going to hop in a car and drive back to Utah to deliver, because we should. He used to practice down here and he didn’t have many positive things to say about it. He unfortunately hasn’t been the only one to tell us about all the healthcare issues Vegas faces either. Looks like the doctors have to take on so many patients that everyone suffers a little. The c-section rates are insane at most of the hospitals. Insane! It seems the doctors try to schedule c-sections as much as they can to get in as many babies as possible in the shortest amount of time.

Anyway, I have this uneasy feeling about it all. Our doctor seems great so far but I just need more information before I can feel better about any of it.

As for living in Vegas, I still feel like a fish out of water down here, but hopefully things will get a little more normal. The good news is that you are still safe inside my belly and the big ultrasound went smooth as can be. That’s all that matters for now.

Week 21-23

Did I say I couldn’t get enough of your kicking? Let me rephrase that.  I can’t get enough of your kicking between the hours of 7:30 am and 10:00 pm, but those darn late night kicks are already strong enough to wake me up…or at least strong enough to stomp on my bladder and send me running for the potty.

The last little while has been nothing but a blur. Hayes and I flew back to Utah to do some photography and then came back to move into our new house. The week we moved in Pop pop came down to help us as well as Kami and her 4 kids (she adopted Makelle for the weekend).  They were here for a week and then Chris’ grandparents, aunt, uncle and parents came down for his graduation. (Yaay Chris for graduating!). Then we dropped all the boxes where they were, which was pretty much the same place we put them when moving in because of lack of time, and headed back to Utah for more wedding photoshoots.

So now we are back to Vegas and trying to get into a schedule again. We have approximately 16 weeks to get a house unpacked, painted, cleaned and somewhat decorated. 

Although I say 16 weeks, I really don’t know if you’ll stay put that long. The doctor says that you are already measuring a week ahead of schedule and might be a “big baby”. I don’t mind big, as long as it means healthy!
