Pregnancy


Well I have had many requests so I am finally caving......
 Heres a belly picture!!!


July 27, 2008
 18 weeks and one day

Thank you to everyone for all the well wishes. I am doing well. I guess I will back track a little to give you the full story. It took us longer then we wanted to get pregnant. I was really starting to worry!!!! I was a mess, poor Ryan. He would alway tell me that it would all work out and not to worry. Did I mention he was telling this to Brittany Ann Petersen the QUEEN of worrying! Well as soon as I REALLY stopped  (I pretended many times) it happened. So we were having a baby, that means no more worrying right? Yeah right, it was just the beginning.  I had some blood problems and thought I might have a miscarriage, I was so afraid! I was teaching dance at the time but had to quite because of the problems I was having. Thanks to the power of prayer and Priesthood blessings the baby is fine. We waited to tell family and friends for awhile. I couldn't handle my own worrying let alone having others worry. 
So for those of you who don't know Ryan and I are currently living with Ryan's parents. So I was trying to think of a creative way to tell Ryan's Dad and Diana. In the front room when you first walk to their house they have pictures of all there children. On top of Ryan's photo we put two snap shots. One of Ryan holding the pregnancy test and the other of the close up of the word PREGNANT (we did a digital test) I also made a little sign that said "we're having a baby." Well we put this up Sunday afternoon thinking they would see it when they woke up from their Sunday naps. This was not so! They did not see it until Wednesday afternoon... and I think it was our niece Lauren who really saw it first.
Baby and I are doing well! The baby is moving and kicking me all the time. Lots of people have been asking me how my back is doing because of my scoliosis. I do have back pain but I have been able to manage it pretty well with Chiropractic (Thank you Dad, I am a lucky girl to have such a talented Dad!) and yoga. I am also really enjoying swimming!
Ryan and I feel so blessed to be having a child and look forward to being parents! Thank you for all your love and support!!!!

Yay for the belly pict! You look very good! I am glad that your back is doing as good as it can! Hopefully it keeps it up! I thought all the worrying would be over when we got pregnant too...it took us awhile. But you are right. It was just the beginning! It looks like you had a great 4th! It is one of my favorite holidays!

That is hardly a belly! You are too cute. Chad and I are so excited for Vance to have another cousin to play with. How much longer before you know what you are having?

I love little baby bumps! I'm glad you are feeling well and you look great! Thanks for the advise on the school clothes. I've already told my girls they can pick 2 new outfits and new shoes and we'll do the rest of the shopping when the weather starts to change. They have all their summer clothes they can wear now. Enjoy your pregnancy. There's nothing like your first!!!!

I don't know about you being tiny. That is just what others are saying. Honestly, you area bit out of proportion (sp?). I didn't want to bring it up, but I must tell you that you have this big bump right on your belly. You may want to get it checked out. =P Yeah!

Hi! It has really been forever since I last saw you, but I was blog-surfing and found your page. I am so excited for you and Ryan! Motherhood is awesome. My daughter Ivy is 2 and it just keeps getting better and better. Congratulations!
