Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

What a wonderful week!

I'm 20 weeks and HALF WAY!!!

How many weeks/days remaining: 20 weeks
Expected Due Date: July 15, 2011
Next Dr. Appointment: March 16

Size of baby: At the 19 week sonogram he weighed 10oz and was the size of a small melon.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 9lbs

Maternity Clothes: Wearing maternity pants because they feel so good. Still normal tops and regular workout clothes.

Workout: 3-4 days a week. Turbo Kick and walking downtown

Movement: I felt something at 18 ½ weeks, nothing since

Sleep: Sometimes restless, but overall good

Pregnancy Highlights: I have been a cleaning and organizing fool. I made Lisha proud the other day by testing every marker and paint pen in the studio. I love feeling so driven to be productive...this winter was making me feel like a lazy bum.

What I miss: nothing really. Pregnancy has been great!

Cravings/Aversions: Back to eating everything I always did. No cravings recently.

Symptoms: I get short of breath very easily.

Best Moment this week: Seeing our healthy baby on the sonogram was amazing. Everything looked perfect and measured correctly! Also the gender reveal party and finding out we are HAVING A SON!!! Zach was beyond thrilled! Just watch the last few minutes of the video to see him screaming! (see gender reveal video on right side of blog). So glad we got to share the night with so many family and friends, here and out of town. It was a wonderful day! Thanks for all the love everyone!
