We found out today what we were having, and it looks like it is going to be another baby girl. We were told that it is only 95% accurate so I still will have my doubts until this baby is born. For now though looks like we don't have to buy any new clothes, which Damon is extremely happy about. We took Olivia with us and she was so funny, she kept on asking if the baby was going come out today. If only it was that easy. I'm pretty excited about it being a girl, I think that will be really fun for Olivia to have a little sister. Damon wasn't to bummed about it being a girl the only thing that really scares him about girls is when they are teenagers, but we have awhile before that and Olivia already has moments when she acts like a teenager. We think that we have a name for a little girl, so were actually pretty ready for this baby to come just have to wait 20 more weeks. Yay I'm halfway there.

I thought I would give you all an update on how my pregnancy is going so far. I had a doctors appointment yesterday and everything seems to be looking good. I was a little worried because I have been feeling lots of pressure but after being checked I am A okay. My doctor said that sometimes the second or third time around your pelvis adjusts a little earlier then in your first pregnancy. My blood pressure is good, which is a good sign so far, having developed pre-clampsia with Olivia, I have a 20% chance of getting it again. Not to high of a chance but you never know. Everything seems to be looking good, I haven't gained to much weight, which I'm trying to not go as overboard as I did with Olivia. Although for not gaining to much so far, I definitely seem to be showing a little more sooner. I have ultrasound on Dec. 31 and we will get to find out the sex at that time, hopefully. In Lakeview they sometimes don't like to tell you because they have been wrong a few times in the past. We have some names picked out for girls and one for sure for a boy. So will see, everyone keeps asking me what I want and I really don't have a preference this time around. After all ready having a little girl, I'm fine with either. I think a girl would be nice just because we have so many girl clothes, and this one being a May baby also I wouldn't have to worry about having the wrong size of clothes for the wrong season. I think it might be a boy, but who knows I'm never really good at guessing. Well I guess that is it for now, I'll make sure to let you all know what it is when we find out.

Oh and its Damon's and his twin brother Caleb's birthday today, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
26 WOW, you guys are getting closer and closer to 30!

-Tag 7 random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
-Let each person know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
7 random facts:

1. I am absolutely and I mean absolutely terrified of sharks. So scared that I even get a little nervous when I am swimming in a pool that is a little cloudy. I also used to imagine that a shark was chasing me for some of my swim meets growing up to help me swim faster, and it worked.

2. I had the easiest time having Olivia (only pushed for 15 minutes) that ever since I had her I've been wanting to have another just to see how I will do.

3. I dread raffles, mainly because people always get my name wrong.

4. I have been head over heals in love with Damon since I was 16 years old. Although I'm afraid that if Edward from Twilight was real I might go chasing after him.

5. I have had a crush on Hugh Grant since I was about 10 years old.

6. I would have loved to have been an adult in the 40's or 50's, I just love everything about that era.

7. My favorite sandwich is a cucumber sandwich, just buttered bread and sliced cucumbers. I have liked them ever since I can remeber. Must be a english thing.

I don't really like tagging people so anybody who wants should really do this, its lots of fun.

I have been feeling so blessed lately. We know this family that the husband grew up in the Lakeview ward, anyways there little baby who is 3 months has cancer and there not sure if she is going to make it. The poor little girl since birth has been in the hospital. Through all the hardships they are enduring they still have faith. Please keep them in your prayers and little Gracie. Here is there blog if you would like to read it, warning though it is a tear jerker.
Just reading this makes me so grateful that Olivia has no health problems. I have never understood how parents can get such strength while enduring to watch their child suffer. I pray that I will never have to endure that.
