Jewelry, and other Endorsements! (Cindy wrote this)

Well hello again. First of all, baby updates, I'm just a few days shy of 12 weeks so that's exciting. We have our 2nd doctors appointment in a week, yay! For now, it seems like it will take forever before we get to meet our little baby. That's frustrating. We still haven't decided if we are going to find out if it's a boy or girl, but we still have a little while for that.
Okay, so as most of you know, I worked for a pearl company started by a stay at home mom here in Utah. I worked there for a little over a year, but now I am with a company that builds custom homes. I have enjoyed the change. Anyway, one of the reasons I left was because of the way business was being done, the way people were being treated, and mostly, 'cause I needed to move on. Anyway, one of my friends that also left the previous company started her own company and I'm so excited for her. She has some really cool stuff. You should check it out. Anyway, I am trying to help come up with different ideas of jewelry and products, so please feel free to write and tell me of styles of jewelry you like. Whether its simple, or you like chunky, be as vague or as specific as you like.
Also, while I'm sharing my opinion of products, for anyone who likes candles, over a year and a half ago, Chris and I found the most amazing candles ever. They are made of soy, they smell amazing, and burn clean. You won't really appreciate what I'm saying until you own one. We are addicted. I hate all other candles now. And, if you spill the hot wax, it wipes up with soap and water. Check them out, Our favorite is the Orange chili pepper. Last product I love, arbonne. They have great skin products. I really like them. We have an account with them which helps 'cause, it's kinda spending, but we get pretty good deals this way. Nice thing is it lasts, and it's high quality. Anyway, that's about it for my endorsements.
Oh, also, anyone have pregnancy workout tips or favorites?

This one's for Sarah (Cindy wrote this)

Okay so, Chris and I don't take pictures often. We have maybe five from our pre-marriage days (not counting our engagement pictures), a few from our wedding with again, maybe five that actually turned out, and maybe two since we've been married. Needless to say, we aren't the best at taking pictures. We do take pictures of our cats sometimes, but that's about it. Well, while we were visiting my parents during Christmas, my mom took a picture of us hanging out at Moonstone beach, in the rain, naturally. Chris is wearing my dad's bright yellow raincoat and cowboy hat so you should be able to pick him out pretty easily. I'm the one next to him.

Sarah, you asked me for pictures, so there you go! This one's for you!!

It's Really There!!! (Cindy wrote this)

So last Friday was our first doctors appointment. What an exciting and weird experience. First of all, not knowing exactly when we were due, and not having any "proof" (other than the 5 positive pregnancy tests of course), I kept thinking I was going to be told, we weren't really pregnant. We met our doctor and explained a little of our problem (not having any idea of when we were due), then quickly proceeded to our first sonogram!! Yay! I was excited to finally find out whether there really was something in there, growing or not. But I was also so worried that he wouldn't find anything and say something like, yeah, I don't know why they came up positive. Sorry.

Needless to say, when I not only saw a little lima bean looking thing on the screen, but when he showed us the heartbeat and said, oh, and there's junior, what a feeling. I couldn't believe it. There really is something growing inside me. Freaky. It's soo cool! That's when it finally felt real. Now, whenever I think it's all a dream, I take a look at our baby's picture on the fridge. Let me just say, I feel so blessed to be able to have this amazing opportunity to be a mom and bring a life into this world. I am so excited, and yet also a little nervous. Oh, the due date!! August 14th 2007. We're so excited! It's hard to be patient. I just want to meet it already. I think I'm getting more used to feeling nauseaus all the time so it doesn't seem as bad anymore, although I am looking forward to not feeling like throwing up all the time, or wanting to sleep all day. That's been kinda hard. Only a couple more weeks!!
