Chloe update and a Movie Review

I had another doctor's appointment today. This time I had to take the Dextrose test to make sure that I'm not diabetic. I also had to get the ROGAM shot since I have a negative blood type and Mark has a positive blood type. 

Chloe was so cute today. When the nurse was trying to check her heartrate, she started moving all over the place. The nurse was literally chasing her around my stomach with the doppler. I could feel it and was wondering if the nurse was noticing. Sure enough, the nurse started laughing and said, "She's moving a lot today!" I'm sure it had nothing to do with the sugarwater I had to drink before I went into the appointment ;)

I was very excited/nervous when the doctor said that I should schedule out the rest of my appointments! The days of monthly appointments are over which means Chloe will be here very soon!!!


I wanted to share a cute movie with you all. I am a sucker for cartoons. I love them and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I have been afraid to watch the movie 'Up' since (a) I'm overly emotional (b) thought it would bring up emotions that I would rather not deal with right now and (c) out of respect for Mark (I always cry during Disney movies and I feel utterly ridiculous when cry about cartoons; poor Mark is the one that has to hold me while I sob and I know he probably would rather not so I try and spare him).

Despite the fact that I was bawling uncontrolably less than 5 minutes into it, I love the movie. No wonder it's up for Acedemy awards. It's the best cartoon I've seen in a long, long time. It's pretty funny and Mark was even laughing out loud at some parts. He won't admit it but I'm pretty sure he liked the movie, too.

I don't want to give anything away but I have to share my favorite part.  Ellie leaves a note to her husband, which he finds later. It says, "Thanks for the adventure. Now go have one of your own." I'm tearing up just thinking about that part of the movie.

You have to see this movie if you haven't yet. Trust me. I AM NOT an expert!


  1. Glad to hear your appointment went well. Sounds like everything is on schedule for Chloe's May debute. Maybe she is going to be a runner like her Mom. ;)

    Dad and I will have to rent "Up" and check it out. I'll keep a kleenex close by just in case.

    BTW-I've been meaning to tell you I like your new blog layout.

  2. Looks like Chloe will be like you and want to run races.Sounds like she is a healthy and active baby who is anxious to entertain you. I know she will be a happy and adorable little sweetheart. I hope I can find someone to go see the movie with me. Love you, Grandma L.

  3. LOVED up!
    How often are your appointments now?

  4. Dez, appointments are every 3 weeks for the next two visits then another in 2 weeks then i have weekly appointments until she gets here...hope you are feeling well. Glad PT went well for you!

  5. Don't tell Todd I told you... but even HE cried a little during UP! I was bawling of course! It was so sad, but so good ;)

    Miss Chloe sounds like an active little girl, just like her Momma!


  6. Glad to hear everything with Ms. Chloe is going well! When we rent movies I always grab Up, but then put it up for a different one! Maybe next time!

  7. My mom bought Aiden the movie "UP" a few weeks ago for us to watch while Aiden was sick. Aiden and I were watching it and I could feel myself tearing up and I would look at Aiden to get his reaction and he was just really tuned into it. I figured he would want me to turn it off since its not one of those stupid cartoons he and his daddy like to watch but he LOVED it, its one of his favorite movies. Then one night I was out showing houses and Aiden talked his dad into watching it with him and I kept getting text ever couple of minutes saying "this movie is sad" and then "wow this movie is getting sadder" on and on. I think he even teared up! lol! anyway this has gone way to long! love ya! cant wait to see that girl!


Thanks for reading!
