Is Blogging Really That Great?

This is the question of the day - is blogging really that great. I am going to say yes, even though I generally suck at it. The reason that blogging is really that great is because it lets people know what is going on. I mean, hey, is Jen having a good day? Let's check her blog. Is Ethan walking? Let's check Kyle and Mel's blog. What diapers are the cheapest? Just check Sara's blog. But beyond keeping up with the people that you see/talk to all the time, it is a great way to stalk people. Just kidding! But, that is what it seems like sometimes. For instance, I know all about Sara's best friends, the Hejls, because I religously read their blog. I mean, I have actually seen them in real life, but I don't know that they could pick me out in a line-up. Then, there are the Mayos Never met 'em. I know alot about them, though. They have a really interesting blog. So, in summary, blogs are great for keeping in touch and learning about new people. Maybe I should keep mine up a little better.

In other news...I haven't posted it here and I probably should... we are having a baby!!! We are about 9 weeks pregnant and due in November. Lord willing, there will be a new thing to be thankful for at Thanksgiving dinner. I knew that it would be hard to be pregnant again. Physically, it hasn't been bad yet. I have had little morning sickness and am still going to the gym 3-4 times a week. I am already showing (I think) but that is because of muscle memory. Emotionally, it has been ALOT harder. I still can't think about actually having a baby in the house. My mind won't let me believe that it could happen. Hopefully, the nightmares and things will stop once we see that the baby has kidneys. I want to be able to enjoy the pregnancy and the baby, but, right now, it is really not possible.

I have another appointment next Wednesday and we should be able to hear the heartbeat. I will let you all know how things are going!

I will write more about Easter later. Just know that Ty loved it and has a new favorite word - candy!!

Awesome! Congrats you guys. I have a really good feeling that this pregnancy will go well fo you and yours.

And, thanks for the shout-out! I read your blog a lot as well - isn't this blogging thing crazy? It's weird to think about how many people you don't know that well who are reading your blog. Hope we can see you guys soon so I can pick you out in the crowd - I'm pretty sure I remember you, so I'm sure I could do it.

I think blogging is great too! I love reading to catch up on my friends near and far.

I'm glad things are going well in this pregnancy. I'm praying for you and the baby!

Hey! I had heard through the grapevine about your new blessing. I know that it is hard. I have already warned my OBGYN that the during next pregnancy I will be psycho mama. But we both have a really good reason to worry. I have been remembering you in my prayers, and I will keep praying. Ill try emailing or calling you later.
