Funny story...I have an "outie" belly button. Turns out it's a hernia. The hole from MY umbilical cord has opened & now I have bowels poking through (small intestines) which force my navel out. GROSS! You know you're a middle school teacher when you get excited to tell your students a gross story like that!
Weight: 134 (gained 22 pounds so far)
She is kicking me like crazy these days & I'm hoping she never finds my ribs!!!
I got sick this first week of school & am soooo thankful for the 3 day weekend! I need to catch up on sleep & school work (already). My kids are great though! I see opportunities to sneak into their lives & grow them! I love teaching!!! My birthday was the 2nd day of school & I got 3 b-day cards, 2 pans of brownies and flowers from my students! It was GREAT!
Speaking of my birthday...Justin got me a GREAT gift. I "flip" cam. It takes videos & is smaller than my blackberry. I'll try to post some videos soon. I also bought myself a sewing machine. I'll attempt my first sewing since 10th grade soon! Wish me luck!

Total Weight Gain: 18 (in the low-normal range)
Heartrate: very fast....didn't ask for it.
I'm measuring right on schedule. I asked the doc about traveling to Dallas & Austin in the next month. He said that was fine. I have an u/s on monday to make sure my placenta has moved! Hopefully it has and Natalie is still a girl...haha.
Also had my glucose test & that is fine, but I'm low on iron. BLAH...I hate iron supplements. They are sooo constipating :(

Christmas day & I spent 6 hours driving a 3 hour drive to Wichita Falls from Lubbock (the horrendous snow storm of 2000). There's this guy, Justin Pierce, he's a manager at United, but I don't think he really cares for me.
Well, Justin came over last night & brought me a big Teddy Bear!! It's cute!! We went to eat at IHOP & then went to do donuts in the stadium parking lot. Then we came home, pulled out my sofa bed & JUST watched Top Gun, then we fell asleep. He was soooo sweet! I'm afraid to let myself feel the way I want to. I'm SOOOO afraid of being hurt. I mean, he's 24, graduated, handsome...what would he possibly see in me?
I finished the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. Very good! I was a little skeptical at first because it was pretty predictable (the new book), but I enjoyed it! I highly recommend this book to anyone! I'm 27 & hopelessly addicted right along with 13 year old sister & students. Sure, you have to love Vampire stories too...hehe. Be careful about this book though...it's 754 pages long. Took me about a day and a half to finish it. Danielle got it at 12:30 am Saturday and was done with it at 5:30pm. BUT...she did nothing but read. hehe...
