Power Outage

We had an interested morning. Kyle got up to study at 3:30 AM only to find out that the power was off in our whole neighborhood. He brushed his teeth and picked out his clothes to candle light while I set up candles and flashlights for his study session. He ended up studying until 6:30 AM by candle light and flashlight. It was pretty funny. Don't worry though, the power came on at 6:30 so they had no trouble giving the test at 7! Great! Kyle still did a great job on the test.

It was really nice to get a few phone calls from group members at 3:30 and 4:00 AM just making sure Kyle was up. It's nice to know we have friends looking out for us here. We've got a great sense of community and really enjoy being at school here.

The weather has FINALLY cooled down. It has been SOOO nice to be able to open the windows, go for a walk, and not sweat to death getting the mail.

Blood Glucose Test= Bouncing baby!

I had my blood glucose test today for my pregnancy. It really wasn’t that bad. My appointment was kind of early, so I slept in, then drank the fruit punch glucose mixture an hour before my appointment. It just tasted like really sugary fruit punch. Not bad, just weird to have that much sugar so early in the morning.

The baby went nuts after all of that sugar. She kicked the doctor when he was listening to her heartbeat, she kicked me all the way home, and then she bounced off the womb walls while Kyle was home for lunch. We were even able to video tape it. Kyle said, "Holy CRAP! I've never seen her move that much!" She was going crazy. You didn’t even have to really focus on my stomach. I could see it out of my peripheral vision. My stomach would bounce out at LEAST an inch. She was flipping around and moving a TON! I think Kyle finally appreciated why I sometimes wake up at night because she’s kicking me. When she wants to, she can pack a powerful little punch. It’s pretty crazy since she’s only about 2 pounds! She’s going to be a tough one, but I hope not too tough.
