I got fat. :(
It makes me sad. :(
Hopefully it wont get too much fatter. :(
We will call this 26 weeks even though I still have a couple more days in my 25th week. It makes me feel better to say that. :(
It's hard to take your own pictures. :(
Besides being fat there isn't much else going on. My GB has been bothering me a lot the last few days but there is nothing we can do about that.
It is finally our favorite season, soccer season! Everyone is playing except for
me. :( Taylor and Kinley have practice tonight, hopefully they have good coaches and Den plays Wednesday. All games on Saturday so I guess Saturdays will be very full of soccer. I should sign up for soccer just so I can stay in shape, but I guess a stray ball hitting my fat stomach wouldn't feel very good. I am still running but it gets harder and harder everyday, mostly cuz my GB can't handle it at all.
As soon as soccer is over Kinley wants to do gymnastics again. I think I might let her this time but, I better see some improvement quickly or I will take her out again. I am sure she wont cry every time like last time but I don't want to waste money on something she isn't good at. Her first week of school went really well. She loves it! Today she had to wear red. We found one shirt with the tiniest bit of red on it! She only wears pink! She wanted me to go buy a whole red outfit with red pants and socks, I was like I don't think so! Good thing it was Sunday so we couldn't go to the store anyway. She forgets to bring her lunchbox home just about everyday. She can't remember anything, she loses things that are right in front of her so I can imagine this will happen all year!

I went to the doc today and I told him I didn't want to have surgery, which he was fine with. He just said be careful what I eat and hopefully my gall bladder will last awhile. I do have to go back every two weeks now instead of only once a month. That is a pain because I already feel like I am there all the time. We will just see how things go.

Here is a reminder of last years fair.
Here he is at this years fair. Sorry bad picture, I didn't get very many of him.
We went to the fair yesterday with Taylor's best friend. Taylor is always over at his friends house we never even see him anymore. He has lots of fun over there though and I am glad that he has such a good friend.
Anyway, back to the fair. I of course didn't get very many pics of Taylor because they were running all over the place. Both of the boys don't like riding rides very much but Kinley, like me, loves to ride everything! She would have stayed there for 10 more hours if she could. Sadly I couldn't ride anything because of this little baby so I got to walk around for four hours waiting for everyone else. My feet were killing me by the end. I do love the smell of fair food though, thankfully my GB (gall bladder) kept me from eating any of it. Kinley won a giant dolphin and Taylor won a giant sword. He wanted a giant machine gun, of course he didn't get that though! We went kind of early to beat the crowd, they both fell asleep on the way home and it was only 5:30! Taylor NEVER takes a nap!
Kinely starts school tomorrow, everyday from now on! She is going to have so much fun! Autumn and I get to go to the doctor tomorrow and hopefully figure out a better way to deal with my GB.

I knew that there were crazy coupon people that say they get free things all the time but I had never really tried it before. I have started shopping at CVS because there are so many things that you can get for free or almost free. So last night I went to CVS to get my cool stuff, some of it I don't need but might as well get free stuff and then you can give it away.
I would have spent $118.54 on all of this stuff.
Instead I spent $16.44!!!
I saved $102.10!!

I went to a surgeon today because my gallbladder has been hurting me. He said that it needs to come out. They will only do surgery in my second trimester but that ends Thursday. He seemed unsure about it, felt where the baby was and stuff and said that he "thought" he could move around the baby, but "thinking" he wont hurt the baby isn't good enough to me. He has to know without a doubt that he wouldn't hurt the kid or make me go into labor. It would be way too early to have him. I don't think any surgeon can say that nothing would go wrong. How do they know that all that medicine wont hurt the baby or make me go into labor? How do they know the pain after surgery wouldn't do something? So I think I have decided not to have surgery. The worst thing that would happen is my gallbladder would start really hurting and I would end up in the ER where they would deliver the baby and take my gallbladder out. I don't think that will happen and if it did at least I would be a few weeks farther along than I am now.
I go to my OB doctor on Monday to talk to him about it. I don't think that he would say anything to make me change my mind.
I really just have a bad feeling about it anyway. I told the doc it was hurting me awhile ago so he probably should have listened to me then. I am also having tons of contractions that hurt really bad and I don't think surgery will help that any. Hopefully everything will just do what it is suppose to because I don't want to worry about it anymore, too much stress!!

Today was Kinleys first day of preschool. She is going to be going everyday at the same school as Taylor. She was so excited but then I think she got nervous and kept looking to make sure I hadn't left. She got her breakfast and I could tell she was about to cry. I went to give her a hug and she started crying. I left after that. They said she stopped crying fast and that she was fine the rest of the day. She said she had lots of fun and wont cry next time. Her teachers are super nice so I am sure she will have lots of fun this year. She told me about all the bad kids, playing outside, and her new friend.
Autumn and I went shopping since I have nothing to wear. The doc called about my ultrasound. Have an appointment Friday and Monday but I will tell you all about that after I see what is really going on.
About to cry while getting her breakfast.
Kinley says this is her Emilie smile.

I took Kinley to the doctor today because she has had a bad cough for like a month. She also has some peeing issues that I have talked about before so I wont go into again. I was surprised at how much she weighs! I knew she weighed a ton but I thought being pregnant just made her seem heavier, not that I pick her up that often she is almost 5. She weighs 35 pounds! Taylor only weighs 40 so I think he needs to get eating if he wants to stay bigger than her.
Anyway, she has walking pneumonia. I figured she did so I wasn't surprised. She has nasty medicine and hopefully the cough will go away soon. They can't fix her peeing problem unless she has surgery and even that might not fix it. I don't want to deal with that right now because just cutting it open last time was horrible so we will just keep putting her normal medicine on it and I hope that it starts working better very soon.
She starts preschool tomorrow! She will be going everyday, kind of sad. She pretends like she doesn't want to go and has been very shy when her teacher says hi to her every morning when we drop Taylor off, but I know it is all just an act. She is actually very excited to go, she keeps asking if it is time to start yet and keeps talking about it. I will try and remember to take pictures tomorrow of her first day.
Taylor has been back at school for a week now. He is like he always is, wont say much about it. He says some of it is boring and that he already knows what she is teaching. They are learning about dolphins and orca's and he is an expert on sea animals but I am sure they will get into the hard stuff soon.
I went to the doctor yesterday for my usual appt. and for the ultrasound of the kids face. He had both of his feet over his head and his arms covering his face for most of the time but then he finally put them down and we got his face shots. He just looks like a little skeleton, definitely still a boy. He is a little over weight, but I hope they are wrong about that because I don't want a giant baby this time, under 7 pounds would be great!
After the ultrasound I went over to my doctor and I didn't gain any weight this time, woohoo!!! But the reason I haven't gained any weight is because I am never hungry and when I do eat I feel stuffed after a few bites. Which I think is a good thing but with the side pain I have been having to the doctor made me go get an ultrasound of my gallbladder. He also took blood to test my liver. I go back on Monday to talk about the results, I hope they aren't dumb results. I know something is wrong with my side, it's been hurting for awhile, but I don't think they can really do anything to fix it while I am pregnant which is fine with me right now because I can handle the pain and it keeps me from getting gigantic! LOL

I forgot to take pictures on the first day of school so this is actually the second day of school. You can't tell in the pictures but he has a huge bump on his head because he fell on it yesterday at school. He said his teacher was nice but school is still boring.
Kinley had her preschool screening yesterday and she is super smart which is a miracle because I don't teach her anything! Her first day of school is next Wednesday. She keeps asking everyday if it is time to go yet and I have to keep telling her no. She really wants to go but I am sure the day of she will be really shy and nervous.
Here is a picture of me 23 weeks pregnant, I can say 6 months next week! It's been going slow but it doesn't seem like I have been pregnant for 6 months either. I am still sick some days but it is better than it was. I am still running with horrible shin splints so it's really hard but as long as it keeps a couple pounds off of me I guess I will do it. I go to the doctor Monday and I get to have my second ultrasound. Hopefully they can get his face this time. He still doesn't move, I rarely feel him, so he will probably be difficult at this ultrasound to.

Taylor starts second grade tomorrow! He seems too little to be going into second grade. He has the nicest second grade teacher though so hopefully everything will go well this year, no broken bones and such. He doesn't want to go at all but maybe once he makes some friends in his class he will like it more. He really only wants to go to school to play with friends. Hopefully he will have a good year and make good friends and learn something along the way.
Kinley starts preschool everyday to. The house will be so quiet without her here all day, I am still watching Autumn but she isn't nearly as loud as Kinley! Of course when the baby comes the house will probably be full of crying so I might like Kinley's constant talking better than a wailing newborn, at least I can tell her to be quiet! Her teacher is very loud and they do lots of fun things so I am sure she is going to love it. It always takes her awhile to adjust to new things but she loves playing with friends so I know she will get over her shyness pretty fast.
