I sent another email to his SW today telling her that I won't be able to travel more than an hour from home soon (I told her 32 weeks but I think it's more like 34-36??? I have no idea. I just wanted to start a fire under her!). That's about 5 1/2 weeks away. Since he is in Dallas and that's a 3 1/2 hour car ride away, we have to start thinking about these things. It's taken 2 1/2 months just to get a photo. I can only imagine how long it will take to actually do something productive. All I'm getting is that she's not the only one involved and things have to happen in a certain order, blah, blah, blah.
I guess I spoke too soon the other day about baby moving like crazy. She's been pretty calm the past 2 days. And I don't like it! It scares the hell out of me! When she's moving I know she's ok. But then I start to panic if I don't feel her for a little while. A friend of mine said she went to the ER 5 times during her pregnancy because she couldn't feel the baby move. Of course, he was fine and is now 7 years old! It's working my nerves!! I'll be really glad to meet her when the time is right.
I start classes again on Monday. It's an online class, pharmacology, and it should be interesting. I am going to miss having classmates though. I'm sure I'll have enough to keep me busy.

This is my husband's response to this email: =)
"Is she sending the photos via e-mail or postal service? It would super cool if we could get them as e-mail attachments. He's probably already grown a moustache..."

I mean, seriously?! What is it like to be that absolutely gorgeous? I wonder if he walks around all day just thinking about how hot he is? Oh to be that pretty and rich!! =)
My husband is a huge Star Trek fan and wasn't a huge fan of this movie. I wonder if had tons of hot girls instead if he would have liked it more!?
But, I digress...
Nothing new on the adoption front. STILL WAITING!! That's all I have to say about that.
This whole baby growing business is exhausting and of course, emotional. She moved a ton yesterday! I felt her all day long. The day before? Barely felt her at all. Today so far? Hardly anything. I thought for sure once the movement started that my nervousness would ease up. Yeah, right. For seconds at a time. =) Last night I was in bed and she was having a party in there. I told my husband to put his hand on my belly and she gave him a good kick! He was all, "EWWW!! Oh my gosh! That is soo creepy!! Ok, I'm done!!". It was so funny. I told him he should have felt it from the inside! Oh, and I actually felt her squirm. It wasn't a kick or a poke or a tap. It was a wave of squishiness. It was sooooo weird!
I'm grateful, I truly am. And I'm blessed beyond words. I am praying that all of you get to experience this one day soon. I think a big milestone for me will be 30 weeks. Only 5 weeks to go!

I am super frustrated with this whole adoption process right now. I talked to my social worker on Wednesday just to vent my frustrations. We are waiting on AB's social worker to do her thing but she is dragging her feet. It's been 2 months since we were chosen and she still hasn't done anything! We should have at least had our big meeting scheduled by now. Once the referral came to us and we accepted she waited 3 weeks to let us know that she needed additional paperwork completed before we could schedule the meeting. We received it a week later and had it back to her in 3 days. THEN, three weeks later, she says that she needs copies of our 1st aid and cpr certifications. WTH? Why couldn't she have asked for all of this 2 months ago? My social worker is about to strangle her and said that if we don't know something by Monday that she is going to call her supervisor. It's fine that he's not with us yet..he needs to finish out the school year. BUT! At this rate he will get here just in time to start school in the fall. I would like to have him here for a few weeks before school starts. Oh, yeah, and that little detail about me HAVING A BABY!! I just need to stop 'cuz I could go on for days!
I took my last final exam today! Woo hoo! I've finished my first semester! I ended up with an A and a B in my classes. I'm happy with that. This was a stressful semester and it has flown by. I'm so glad to be done. My house is finally going to be clean again! I am taking one class online this summer. I wanted to take one more but every class is full. This really puts a damper on my plans but hopefully a class will open up this summer. There is no way I can take a class in the fall. Especially since they start on August 25.
I'm looking forward to a fun weekend with my husband! We haven't had any time to relax and just hang out in forever. It will be fun!

Not much else to report. I'll have more time to blog after Thursday. Please say prayers that I pass all of my finals and get good grades in my classes!
