So I havn't really had anything to write about until now. Finals are over which means school is done! I'm so happy and not as stressed out anymore. I passed all my classes except for one because I had a stupid teacher FAIL me because I missed too many days from being sick. Even with a doctors note and turning every assignment on time- he didn't care. F. I was really upset. He's stupid.
Lately I've been feeling very very pregnant. I'll be 30 weeks on sat! crazy!!!! only 10 weeks left to go and Brooklyn will be here. We've been attending the classes every week and i'll admit I'm SCARED TO DEATH FOR LABOR! we learned all about epidurals, episiotomies, the foreceps and vacuum thing they use and all of that fun scary stuff. If any of you know me-my biggest fear is needles. I want to cry when I get poked in the arm so watching someone get an epidural made me want to pass out. I started feeling so sick and it was kind of pathetic. I just hope that before I get an epidural I'm not freaking out because I can't handle the pain. The hospital doesn't want to give the epidural until your dialated to a 5 and i've heard its extremely painful before you get to that point. So if I am in pain I hope its not for like 30 hours or something. Anyways on a happier note about being pregnant. Brooklyn is driving me crazy!!!!! She keeps me up at night and wont stop kicking my side when i'm trying to sleep cuz she's trying to get me to move. She's so funny though, the other day she stuck her head out a little so i pushed it back in and then she pushed it out so i pushed it in.. she pushed it out so i started rubbing her head in a circular motion and then would go to the other side and i could feel her flip and go over there and stick her head out! SHE LOVED IT! ammon tried and the same thing happened. We couldn't stop laughing. Also, she loves otter pops. I start eating one and immediately she starts kickin and spinning or doing jumping jacks or whatever she does.. :) i love her and can't wait to meet her.
Another exciting thing that is happening is that the apartment place called!!! We've been living in this 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house since we got married and its been great but the apartment we are moving into only requires you to pay 30% of your income... So I dont have to work and I wont stress about Ammon making enough to pay for rent and all the bills. Its such a blessing that we get to move in next month right before the baby comes. Its perfect timing and we are so happy!
I have more prego pictures to post but forgot my camera so I will do that later! Anyways thats an update on us!

Congrats on the apartment! That is very exciting! As for the labour and delivery process... my honest opinion is that it's only as bad as you decide it to be. I'm going to start sounding a little crazy here to some, but bare with me. I believe that the mind is a very powerful thing. With both my kids I honestly decided that they were going to be born early and that everything was going to go smoothly and I had a very easy time with both! I also took Red Raspberry leaf (the tea with Aubrey and the capsules with Jensen) and I honestly attribute my easy labour to that. With Jensen I seriously didn't feel any pain until I was 9 cm dilated. I could barely tell that I was having contractions. Our bodies were designed to have babies and it's a very beautiful, natural process. Epidurals are not necessary whatsoever. I've never had one and I never will! I don't condemn people who get them, but seriously, if you're scared of needles, don't do it! I've heard so many horror stories about them from some of my friends and I don't think the risk is worth it! If you decide you will not get an epidural, you won't! If you decide that there is any possibility that you will, then you will. Just my thoughts... When it's all over, you'll have a beautiful baby girl, you'll forget about what you went through and it will all be worth it! Good luck and I can't wait to see your baby. I know she is going to be beautiful because both you and Ammon are two of the best looking people ever! Love ya Cort!
