baby belly

I was just looking through some of my belly pictures and I haven't done a very good just at taking pictures every month like I had wanted to but here is what I have. I feel that these pictures don't really do justice but oh well the camera always lies if you may say that. Most of these pictures are taken right before I go to bed so don't look at my to closely.

The baby has been quite active and the dr say's it is growing well. It is crazy how fast it is going by and before we know it we will have a little one in our arms. It is very exciting.

Well I hope you enjoy the new pictures.

Baby Pictures and Pregnancy update

Awhile ago I got to go for my ultrasound(I was 20wks). Here are a few pictures from the ultrasound. Most pictures say on the bottom what the picture is of. It was really neat to see the pictures of the baby because it made it so much more real to me. There is actually a little person growing inside of me.

Since my last post I have still been doing, but just this last Saturday at work I had another almost fainting spell. The same things happened as last time. My manager wanted to send me home but I told her once it is over I will be ok and I was. Good thing it was only a 3 hr day and it was slow.
The baby has been fairly active and both Tim and I have been able to feel it's kicks which is fun.
We have been fairly productive buying baby stuff on good deals and great steals at garage sales. We have all the big things that if baby came we would be ok other then in the clothing department. LOL.
So yeah nothing too exciting but that is good. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Well so far I have still been feeling really good. I have found one thing that make me sick and that is Dairy Queen Ice cream. I went out to get Blizzard's with Cara while they were having their anniversary sale and about half an hour after I was done mine I was not feeling good. So I had a sore stomach all night and part of the next morning. Some of the girls at work were like you have to try it again to see if that was actually what caused it. I am not going to try it again and will abstain from DQ ice cream until this baby comes into the world. It is not the worst thing that could happen. I will survive. Also the day after the ice cream incident I almost fainted. My sister-in-laws and I had gone for a walk and stopped at Cara's house to visit and I was getting a little bit warm, then my head started to spin a bit and then I was like I need to sit down. A few seconds after I sat down the girls said I went as white as a ghost and then a few seconds later they said my face was very red and I could just feel the sweat dripping off of me. So yeah that was a new experience. Someone had mentioned maybe it was my blood pressure but I am not sure. I had my appointment for my blood tests this past week and if anyone know me they probably know that I don't like needles. I was hoping that they were going to do them at my last doctors appointment but I had to go to the hospital to get them done. So I had to go by myself because Tim was working. I got myself worked up and cried like normal. But they two nurses were very kind a patient with me and it was actually a very good experience for me so hopefully in the future all other experiences will be the same too.
So yeah nothing to exciting has happened but thing seem to be going well. Yeah!

I am very glad that the Olympics are over. I feel like I just sat in front of the TV for 17 full days and did nothing else but watch tv, eat, work and sleep. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Olympics, I think our Canadians did a great job. There were alot of moments I was really proud to be Canadian but I think the best one was seeing Joannie Rochet win her Bronze medal for herself and her Mother.

A few weeks ago in Sunday school one of my little boys said something really funny to me. we were working on our activity sheets and there was a rose on the page and he tapped me on the shoulder and said I want to give a girl a flower. I asked him which girl thinking maybe it was a girl in our Sunday school class. the next thing I know is he is poking me and he said I want to give you a flower because I want to marry you. Oh to have the innocence of being a 4 year old. It was really funny but I made sure you not laugh out loud.

Also a few weekends ago I got to watch my two sister-in-laws play hockey for the very first time. They played in the EMcup women's hockey tournament. They both got to play on the same team. It was a lot of fun to watch them. Lorissa scored her very first goal in their 2nd or 3rd game. Their team did not end up winning any of their 3 regular games but won the very last one which gave them the bronze medal. I think they both had a really good time and were sore and tired the next day. Know all three of us girls have had a weekend of hockey. I played in the EMcup last year and my team won the gold medal. Ah fun times.

Our Trip To Saskatoon

Well our Drive to Saskatoon was quite eventful which was not good. Our car started acting up just after the Dafoe corner(the Red X) which is about an hour and a half away from Saskatoon (the red circle). At the Dafoe corner the car stalled at the stop sign. Tim just shut it if and then started it again. Then we went around then next turn and the cat would not go, when it would go it would only go 40km so we slowly putted along and after a bit we could get it to go 90km for a bit but then it would go down to about 60km so we drove all most all the was to Saskatoon varying speed from 60-90km. Then whole time I was praying just let us get to Saskatoon. This is the situation where I wish we would have had a cell phone. About 10 minutes out sided of Saskatoon the car was going 100km so we thought maybe it fixed it's self. When we could see Stoon I asked Tim if we should try to get to my mom's, which is on the opposite side of Saskatoon or just go to my Grandparents house which is on the outskirts of Saskatoon, the side we came in on, but Tim thought we could make it to my Mom's house. So we were doing well when we were almost off the the Idwyld Bridge it stalled again (the red X in the photo below) and the red circle was our destination, so close but so far. There the car stopped, we could not get it to start. After Tim spent some time fiddling around under the hood, and ran out of ideas we flagged down a car and called my Mom to come try and boost us. By this time it was 3:45 in the morning. The next morning I had found out that just before we called my Mom had gone into the basement to see if we had arrived just and she was just starting to get worried.

While we were waiting for them to arrive lots of people stopped to see if we needed help which was very kind of them. Once they (Mom and Bill) got there they tried boosting us but that didn't work so they just ended up towing us to there house. The next morning Bill and Tim went out and tried to get it going again. We thought that the gas line might have frozen up because it was really cold out that night and really windy. Nothing seemed to be working, so we towed it over to my Dad's house to put it in the heated garage. We left it there over night and still no luck. Tim had called his friend who was a mechanic and he gave us a few ideas. So we tried changing the fuel filter(which is what they guys are trying to do in these pictures).

So finally on Saturday morning we towed it over to Canadian Tire and there they fixed it. After all that it was the timing belt and the tensioner that needed to be fixed which cost us $600. What a fun trip to Stoon. At least we were able to get the car fixed over the holidays and be able to be back at work on Monday like planned.

The last 3 time we have tried to go to Saskatoon we have had car trouble, must be a sign...NOT. oh well we made it there(with a little help) and back safely.

The Driedger's came to Visit!

Our dear friends Bryce and Dielle came to visit us before we left for Saskatoon. We invited them over for supper on December 30th. It was quite funny, Tim and I were getting supper ready and we heard Jerome come home from work and I was going to let him know that we were having company for supper and when I got to the top of the stairs Bryce and Dielle were in our entrance way. They had just come in with Jerome and they were going to stand there and see how long it took for us to realize that they were there. I still wonder if Jerome know who he was letting into our house or if he would do that we some stranger. (I doubt it but one will never know). Anyways that is definitely something they would do and made me laugh. After supper we played a Game of settlers with them, it is kind of funny because Dielle and I kind of learned the game because our guys were fans of it. We might have even played it a few time a Bible school so it would have been right to not play it when they were here. After our game we headed over to Mark and Helen's to watch the last period of a world juniors game. It was really nice to visit with them since we missed going to Alumni weekend this year. I guess it will be our turn next to go see them where ever they will be next time.

And of course I had to take a traditional Ang and Elly picture to add to my collection.

Ah the memories from some of our pictures, good times.

Christmas #3

So Christmas Gathering #3 was in Saskatoon with my family. It was nice to be out there, I got to see some family that I haven't seen in 2 years which was great. My cousins have grown up so much since I have seen them last it is crazy. (while I was there my cousin's friends came over and it was crazy to see how big they are because I used to babysit them as well when I was younger. that makes me feel old!) So our trip out to Saskatoon was unfortunately eventful but that is it's own blog post. We got to be in Saskatoon from the 31-3. On New years evening we watched the Canada play a world junior hockey game against USA, while we watched from home some of my family was at the game enjoying the atmosphere and the great game.
The next day we all went over to my aunt's house. There we played poker, Wii and Karaoke'd, table tennis and just had fun. The Wii entertained us for a few house. We were plying on the Wii fit for a long time, my grandparents even gave it a try. I made my mom try it and it was really funny, she was laughing so hard she almost peed her pants. If you know my mom she gets like that some times but it is really funny. But while we were playing on the Wii I found out that she gets it from my Granny. Too funny.

We also got to go out for supper with my Dad, my Brother and His girlfriend. It was nice to see all of them again and just take some time to catch up on the time gone by.
All in all it was a great time in Saskatoon. Nothing beats getting together with you family and just having fun.
