It's snowing in MI in April, but clearer weather ahead...

I had my regular appointment on Tuesday. All went well, in and out in 15 minutes. She found the heartbeat with the Doppler this time, pretty much right away (last week she saw the heart beating with the Ultrasound). It was so cool. I wish Gary could have heard it, but he had to take care of some internship paperwork. There's always next time. So after a few hurdles in the beginning, hopefully we're on to smoother roads.

Lovenox shots are well under way, making little bruises along the way. They feel like bee stings, some last about 20 minutes, some I don't feel much at all. Being the wonderful husband he is, Gary gives the shots right away in the morning. What a trooper.

Well not only do my friends and I back home get married in the same month (or within a year), but we like to have kids within a week of eachother. Erin & Brandon are expecting #1 on October 22 and Kristen & Dan are also expecting #2 on October 22! How cool is that! On top of that Marc & Nisi are due in August with #2, Nick & Allison are due in August with #1, Kathi & Troy are due in September with #3, and then the 3 of us in October. I also found out a couple friends from highschool are expecting in September/October. It's a baby boomer year! It's almost as if God wanted to put us a little closer through this even though all of us are across the US and Canada. So as we went through the million weddings in one summer a few years ago, we're now going through a million kids in one year. Please keep all of us in your prayers, but also keep in your prayers an old classmate and coworker who just found out she lost her baby about 10-12 weeks into her pregnancy. You just never know what God has in store for our lives.

Gary had a 2nd round interview for a job position at Steelcase on Monday. He actually interviewed for 2 positions during this time, one seemed to be very tailored to his talents and abilities, so maybe this is one they're creating for him? Not sure. Either way, he found out that Steelcase is a very family friendly place to work with a lot of people working there for many years, this is different from what he heard otherwise. So that was really nice to hear. It would be awesome to secure a job at this point, too!

We're also in the process of going through the pros and cons to this house we love in Allendale. Maybe we over analyze things, I don't know. But everything else we've done we could change if we didn't like it or it didn't work out. With a house, it's a lot bigger deal. So hopefully after talking it over with the parents and realtor this weekend, we can make a decision next week. Exciting! Here's what we're looking at:

I guess that's all for now. We'll keep you posted on job, house and baby (next appointment May 8)! Have a great weekend!

Gary & Christie
