Holy Month and a half!!!

What has this past month and a half consisted you ask?  Only minor life changing events... no big deal.

First off I graduated from BYU-Idaho July 15, 2012.  I received my Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science.  I never thought the day would come, but sure enough it did!!!  So exciting!

Right after I received my diploma!
3 days later I found out I was pregnant!!!  I was in complete shock when I found out!!  Not to give you too many details, but I have a disorder that's called Endometriosis, and I was told it would be hard for me to get pregnant.  I thought it would take years before I could get pregnant, but to my surprise, it didn't take years at all!!
Look at those long legs and feet!!
Next up we headed down to Arizona for our anniversary and to visit family!!  We always have such a fun time whenever we go to AZ.  We were able to go to a fun restaurant called Rustler's Rooste, went on a tour of a candy factory, went swimming at Derek's brother's new place, and went shopping.

Such  a fun group of people!!

We got home from AZ on a Friday, and I started my new job on Monday.  I got the job in 3 days, which is pretty unheard of now days.  I was really hoping I would be able to find a job at a Physical Therapy office, but I am so grateful to have any job.  I am currently working for Eye Care Associates in Idaho Falls.  I am working as a tech for Dr. Birch.  I do all of the pre-testing before patients see the doctors, and I do acuities, health histories, and any special testing that the Dr. needs to be done.  I basically run all of the machines at the office.  I have really enjoyed this job, but it is def. stressful trying to learn everything and take it all in.  I'm on my feet all day, and I work long hours.  Pregnancy and those 2 aren't the best of friends, but I'm pushing through.  I am usually completely wiped out by the end of the day.  Luckily I  get Wednesdays and weekends off.  I def. needs those days to recoop. 

I have definitely had quite the month and a half.  I am so blessed for all that I have been given!!!  I can't wait to meet this sweet baby and I am so excited for our family to grow!!!  For some reason I have thought it was a boy from the very beginning.  Derek thinks it's a girl just because I am so set on a boy.  Since it's our first, I really don't care what comes first!!  I am due March 16, and I am currently 14 weeks pregnant.  I have been lucky that I really haven't been very sick.  I get nauseous if I don't eat every couple of hours.  I am pretty low on energy, especially since I've started working.  Before when I was tired I was able to lay down when I needed to, or grab a snack.  Now that I am working all day and I'm on my feet, it is a little difficult.  Other than that, I really have been lucky about how good I have been feeling!!  Derek and I are soo happy with where we are at in life right now!!  All these changes are exciting and scary, but we know that we were meant to have this sweet little baby come into our home at this time!!  These next 6 months will either fly by, or they won't come soon enough!!!  I'm curious to know your thoughts on what you think I'm having.  Also, any words of advice are appreciated!!! I'm always looking for tips and more knowledge in order to have a healthy pregnancy, and to help me to become a better mom!
