My older brother and his family are semi moved back to Utah from North Carolina. That makes me really happy! I've missed being around family so much and now I've got everyone within an hour of me! I LOVE it!
A is working like a mad man and it's been so good. He is happy and stimulated which is more than what most people get so we are so grateful. The Heber-SLC commute is miserable but hopefully it will only be for a few more months. I am so grateful for his hard work and still finding time to make me feel like a million bucks. You can do it sweetie!!!
Our internet here at the ranch is sooo slow but that's the price I have to pay for living in the sticks. We don't have cable either but I haven't even minded that one bit. Kipling and I take lots of walks and go hang out with the horses, so much better than the boob tube. I feel so disconnected from everyone though, I missed A's brother's high school graduation yesterday because well, I just didn't know about it. Hello? Anyone there? Remember me? It's Krystal, you know, I'm part of your family!!! Hello??? I love the ranch but I can't wait to buy a house in SLC, oh that day will be joyous! Until then I am keeping myself busy as can be, there always seems to be something that needs to be done.

How far along? 28 weeks, day 3Total weight gain: I still don't know, I haven't weighed myself in over a month. I'm sure I lost a few pounds because of the flu but I have no doubt that I will quickly put them back on. I go to the doctor next week so we'll see for sure then.
Maternity clothes? I need them desperately as you can probably tell. My clothes are begging for mercy.
Stretch marks? no more thank heavens, just one or two.
Sleep: not very well, I'm constantly tossing and turning and having the craziest dreams. I'm guessing that's normal.
Best moment this week: Memorial day celebration with A's family on Sunday, James winning the 4A state championship in soccer and being voted offensive MVP (you know that's right!), talking to my brother as his family is waiting in the Baltimore airport to fly to UT!!!
Miss Anything? horseback riding, being nimble and able to walk more than 10 steps without getting winded.
Movement: she is getting mighty powerful in there! I've had a few kicks to the ribs that have made me jump a bit.
Food cravings: pasta and fruit, I would kill for some really great watermelon right now. and Del Taco's chicken soft tacos, you say "gross" and I say "give me 18".
Anything making you queasy or sick: everything still gives me major heartburn. Which I read that if you get bad heartburn your baby will come out with a lot of hair. Let's be honest, my baby is going to be bald until she is 2. She's got no chance at having a lot of hair so heartburn you can go away now. Thanks.
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I have to take a potty break all the time, TMI, I know, but that's new and exciting. I feel like a beached whale. I tried finding a funny photo of "beached whale" but they are all just depressing because well, it's a dead whale. sad.
Belly Button in or out? it's out
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: this week has been a happy week minus the tired moments when I can't even put a coherent sentence together.
Looking forward to: swimming lessons with the nieces and nephews on Monday, seeing my brother and his family, Kipling calming down now that his testes are gone, A getting to help bless his friend's baby on Sunday, mercy it's going to be a good week!
May is OVER!!! Here comes JUNE!!! Whoo hoo!!!
