Pregnancy and a 12 Passsenger Vans

So as of today I am 16 weeks 5 days and finally am wearing maternity clothes. The pants are big but my jeans feel bad after a couple of hours. I even went out last week and bought 3 maternity dresses. I may be wearing them every day. Today I went to the OB and it went great. He did tell me that they had a meeting over a month of me. Meaning the high risk doctors and the head of the department. That made me feel good. I asked him if there was something I could do to prevent another early delivery and he was kind of shocked that had not already been dealt with. He said it had already been approved for me to have progesterone shots. OOPS, noone told me. So today I received my first shot. I will go in weekly to receive a shot. I was a little bummed that I could not do it myself at home. The last thing I need is another weekly appointment but it is so worth it. Studies show that women who have weekly shots have a much higher chance of delivering full term. The only side effect is weekly appointments and a sore back side. I can deal with those side effects. I am excited to have a little more hope of delivering full term. Here is a neat article to explain how the progesterone shots work. You can read it right here. Now about that 12 passenger van. When we got the boys we upgraded from a mini van to a suburban. That was just a few months before we started Dave Ramsey. Well now we definitely need something bigger. We need a 12 or 15 passenger van. We have decided we will wait. The suburban is not paid off. So we will wait until we have cash in hand to pay for it. We realized that we are really only all in the suburban once a week. So it is not a big deal to take 2 cars for a while. If we take a trip we will rent a vehicle. Part of me is bummed that we are not getting something bigger right now. Part of me is glad I do not have to give up my suburban. Part of me is excited that we are grown up enough to realize our needs from our wants. Dave Ramsey has definitely changed how we think about our money and what is important. Here is a picture of one of the dresses I chose. This picture is comical because I was making a face at Faith and I was trying on a belly pillow. The sales clerk assured me I would look like this in three months. I can only hope. I love being big and pregnant. Pamela

those pregnancy pillows are always SO awkward when you're trying on maternity clothes. I hate them! You look great! Are you going to find out what you're having?
