Goodbye Civic Hello Jeep Liberty
So we went out on a limb and decided it was time to trade the good old Honda Civic in. I have had the Civic since Jan. of '05. It has really been a great little car, I'll be honest I was kinda sad to see it go. We were planning on waiting until next spring when we could get something that had air conditioning and that was a little newer but we just couldn't pass up the incredible deal that was handed to us. We ended up taking home a Red---YES I said RED,(not my favorite but I do love it) JEEP Liberty. It has been such a blast. It has four wheel drive and does very well. It has been so nice to have something new. This is the biggest purchase Clarke and I have ever made so it was a little scary to sign all the papers and put down some money on such a huge thing. But we have felt nothing but good feelings about our decision and have been in love with it. Even Clarke loves.....what am I talking about of course he loves it, IT's a JEEP and is has four wheel drive. Going up the mountain and trying out the four high and low was the first thing we did that night. It does pretty dang well if you ask me. Anyway we are so grateful we have something so relible and something that will hold up in the snow with a new baby. The only draw back is that it does use up a lot of gas. But it's a 15 gallon tank and gas prices have been so nice it only costs less then $30 to fill it up. We feel very blessed. :) I'll post some pictures of the JEEP in a few!

So today was my first offical day of feeling the Braxton Hicks. Oh my gosh let me tell you it hurts so much. It could be something else but It hurts. This morning I was walking down the hall at work and my ligaments felt like they were being pinched to death I had to slow way down and breath it hurt so bad. Then later on I felt this tighting in my stomach and a sharp pain for a few sec then it went away. At around 5:20pm I was sitting at work at the computer and I got this very painful feeling in my stomach. I had no idea what it was, but it lasted forever, maybe a good 20 mins or more. The pain got pretty bad then kinda eased up a bit, off and on for like 30 mins. I called Labor and delivery to make sure everything was ok, because it's my first baby and I don't know what to expect. They told me it was probably just uterin pain and to go home and take a nice warm bath and drink a big glass of water or something and if it still hurt to call them back. Well I did just that. The pain did ease up a lot but I still have a little bit of pinching and sharp pain every so often. It is the weirdest thing in the world. I guess my body is just preparing itself for Labor. It's good to have this pain though, I think, so I can feel better prepared for that day when my water breaks and I have to deliver the babe. I have really enjoyed being pregnant, it's been pretty easy so far. This is the most pain I have had the whole time and I only have 8 more weeks left. It's crazy. I feel super blessed. I'm very excited and scared to have a baby and be a mom. I have no idea what to expect but it will be so awesome.
