Yesterday I went to the doctor and we heard the heartbeat...it was "very strong" the doctor said. I just want to know if it is a boy or girl!!!! It's wild how things have changed through the years with pregnancies...for example the doctor said I can lay on my back, do sit-ups, workout, lift weights, run marathons...all the way until delivery. Things sure have changed over the years.
I found out I am due November 2nd...thank goodness! They told us last time it was Nov. 24th! So, this baby is going to be a Scorpio...they scare me! All of the Scorpios I've ever met are rigid and very type A. However, my friends Cherie and Kara said they were Scorpios and they are the most care-free individuals I know. Nonetheless, the Bible says we are not suppose to believe in astrology, etc...so I try not to base any judgement on that (but it sure seems to be very good at describing someone).
I talked with my niece Sammy today and she said she got second in the 400 meter race. Good for her. She said she jogged most of the way around and then sprinted in at the end and passed everyone. I wish I could watch her race...she is SO FUNNY!!! Very unique personality and "not a care in the world" about anything going on outside her world...she is born the same day as me...so it should be interesting to see how she grows up. :) I have a feeling this baby will be like Sammy or like Peyton...Sammy very much like me and Peyton very much like Rich!!

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean livin''
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible but, God believes I am worth it.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain..
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!
