Update...

Okay, I had my doctor appointment. I haven't progressed at all, and I haven't had too many contractions. My doctor told me I could go off of bedrest on Sunday, since I will be 34 weeks. We still don't want a 34 week baby, but if I did go into labor, the baby will be a lot better off. I'm really not too worried, because I haven't had hardly any contractions. When she said I could go off of bedrest on Sunday, I thought, perfect timing, because on Sunday at 6am I am hopping a plane to SLC for a house hunting trip. We are so excited to go. We have just needed a break from this place. It has just been so hard living in limbo - not having our things - Troy having a 3 hour commute every day, etc. When I told Kyle we were going to find a house and the movers were going to put up his bunk bed, he almost cried. He is so excited to see his bed, and especially not have to share a room with Kristin. (She's a bit chatty at bedtime - Kyle and Jake can't stand it) I just haven't realized how hard it's been on them. I just figure they're resiliant. I moved a lot growing up, and you deal with it...but I will be so happy to be HOME. Wherever that is...

Another exciting thing happened. I don't know why I'm so excited about it, maybe it's because I actually see an end in site, but we got our flight information to go home in December. We actually fly to SLC on Troy's Birthday Dec. 22, and arrive at 6:30 pm, and it's a direct flight, which thrills me even more! Just having the tickets somehow tells me this is almost over. Maybe it's because when we flew out here, we only got 5 hours notice, so this is awesome!

I'm really hoping at this point, time will fly. When we get home from Utah, the baby could come anytime, then I'm sure the time until we fly home will also go quickly. Please pray that we find a home! We have made offers on 2 homes the past 2 weeks, and nothing has worked out. I'm sure it's for the best, but I can't help feeling discouraged. If we can't find a house, the thought of having to live in corporate housing even longer in Utah makes me nautious! So, we will be in SLC from the Oct. 29th to Nov. 7th if anyone wants to see us...or knows of a house for sale...let us know --but we already have a real estate agent and a loan officer, so we're good...

This will fell like a bad dream when it is all over and your baby will be able to forever say she was born in VA. The lover state. you know "Va is for lovers". You must admit that you have seen a lot of great stuff in the six months you have been here. You now know another member of the crazy in-law family. I'm so glad you are doing better. Good Luck house hunting! :D
