i'm sorry this is so boring....

but there is seriously nothing going on in our lives but work right now! i'll give you some "updates" but they are pretty boring....

baby-ish update:
i have been trying to find a doctor since we got to dc, and i had found one, had some problems with insurance, got that straightened out, finally was able to get ahold of the office again to make an appointment and after being on hold for twenty minutes i was told that i couldn't be accepted as a patient because i wouldn't be delivering with them. confused, i asked why that mattered, and they told me that because the doctor makes most of their money from the delivery, the other appointments wouldn't be worth it to them. so, frustrated and ticked off that all they cared about was the money, i spent the next two and a half hours calling doctor after doctor trying to find one that would take me. and they all said no. so i called my insurance, and they couldn't help me. bawling my eyes out i called my mom, and she said she would call a couple friends who have friends from the area to see if they had any recommendations, and i have finally found one that i think will take me. its kinda far away, but its better than nothing. wish me luck, i am calling first thing tomorrow.

another baby-ish update:
this babe is growing like a weed! it is doing everything it can to make some room for itself, and has a monsterish appetite! the first week we were here i realized i had a headache for a week because i wasn't eating enough, even though i felt like i was snacking constantly. so all meals are large, and i keep snacks with me at all times, and eat in front of everyone. (the baby- i hate calling him 'it' and although we don't know if its a boy or girl, i will be calling it 'him' at least until we find out the gender. besides which, we both think its a boy, and we have the name picked out. ) supposedly i should be able to feel him wiggling around within the next couple weeks..... he has definitely made his presence known though, and some of the twisting and turning i used to be able to do, i can't anymore. i have developed allergies again, which has brought on sneezing, which he does not care for.

work update:
last week i made more money than my husband with all my over-time hours i worked, which was approaching more than my normal hours. my office job has required me to take on a little more than i planned, and we had to get someone to help me out and lessen the load. i am the "inventory manager' for our office, which means handling all shipments of equipment that come in, and distributing it to the technicians. our office is doing really well, which is awesome, but it means thousands of pieces of equipment coming in and out..... and lots of work. it can be fun though, and we have a lot of really great people working with us.
hubby is doing pretty well with the selling, and has seen some good days and some not so good days, but overall its been pretty great. the opportunity to be working with such great people has been awesome, and we know that this summer will be great!

really, other than that, not much has happened. i'll try and get a picture of the baby bump soon.....

Good luck with the doctor thing...I was pregnant two summers and had to deal with finding different doctors...I found that its just easier not to tell them that you aren't going to be delivering there! Just tell them you just moved to DC and then in August you can tell them that you just found out you have to move again!
