7 months

I'm now in my final 10 weeks of pregnancy...I can't even believe it! My last appointment was on Monday June 14th and everything went great. My blood pressure was good, Stella's hearbeat was at 150 and I've gained a total of 24 lbs. I'm down to my two week appointments now and this coming Tuesday I will be 31 weeks along...I'm officially 7 months pregnant, only 2 months to go! My baby shower is coming up on July 10th and I'm very excited! My two best friends: Marie and Brittany are throwing it for me. As far as how I've been feeling: I have been really hot and these 90 degree days are not helping. My feet are swelling a bit, mainly my left foot which is wierd. I've been able to sleep comfortably still...not sure how long that will last. My wedding ring still fits me, which is nice and means that my hands haven't been swelling. I've been feeling Stella kick every day and it's amazing. I can't believe this little miracle is inside me and she will be mine and Troy's forever. We are so excited for her to be born and join our family!

29 Weeks and 4 Days

30 Weeks and 2 Days

May 25, 2010

Troy and I finally made it to the Temple on May 25th 2010 to be sealed for time and all eternity. Troy really wanted to be sealed before Stella is born and also thought it would be really special to be sealed on his grandma's birthday who passed away last June. It was a very special day and we were surrounded by family and close friends. Our wonderful neighbors who do wedding videography and photography took our photos and gave us a video of our special day and it is amazing! We thank everyone who was able to come and support us...we love you all!

Father's Day 2010

For Father's Day this year we celebrated a week early because of Troy's work schedule. We decided to have a family BBQ and invited mine and Troy's family over. This was our first big BBQ since we put in our new patio. We had yummy hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, chips jello and Aunt Patti's famous chocolate cookies...yum! We did a lot of visiting and the boys played catch. We ate just in time before it started to rain on us...but we got to see a beautiful rainbow. For gifts this year Nikolaus gave Troy a collage of pictures from his baseball game and Kaitlyn gave him the final Die Hard movie. My sister and I gave my dad a gift card to Olive Garden, a new brown belt and BBQ utinsels for his BBQ. We had a great Father's Day this year and were so glad we were able to spend it with our families!

Bee's Game

A few weeks ago Troy and I were able to go to a Bee's game...complimentary of my work! We were also fortunate enough to get two extra tickets, so we invited my mom and dad. We had a blast! It was so fun to go out and do something different then just dinner and a movie. I haven't been to a Bee's game in years...we even got really good seats too. The Bee's were playing against Las Vegas...and we won!

It's Baseball Season

Monday was a fun day because we got to go down to Nephi to watch Nikolaus' baseball game. My dad came down with Troy and I and we both took some great pictures of Nik. The game started at 6 but it started raining pretty hard as soon as the game was supposed to start. So we waited in our car for about 15 minutes for the rain to stop. It ended up being really nice and cool outside...not hot like I was expecting, thank goodness! We had a blast watching him play...and he's quite good I might add. Nik's team won...but of course I can't remember the score!

27 Weeks

Here is yet another weekly picture update...I'm a little late on this one. This picture was taken today and I'm sorry I look like crap, but it's Sunday and I don't feel like getting dressed up! LOL And not to mention that I feel very large and fat...but I guess that comes with the it's worth it! Some updates on how I'm feeling at this point: hot, hot hot! LOL I'm hot all the time and I know it's only going to get worse since I get the privilage of being due the very last day of the summer. My feet have been swelling just a little bit, that just started a few weeks ago. I'm hungry pretty much all the time, it's been very difficult to eat healthy...but I've been doing much better. I started going on walks last week, I went twice and did laps around my church with my dogs and my wonderful sister joined me. I'm planning on going on a walk 4-5 times a week. I've been doing horrible at excercising and I figured it's better late than never to start. I've also been working out a little bit on my yoga ball to tone up my legs and I've been using my 5 lb weights to tone up my arms. I'm hoping to keep this up until I deliver. I'm also starting to feel a little uncomfortable in my skin...not sure if that makes sense or not, but anything I wear (besides my sweats) I just feel is so tight and I'm being eaten alive by my clothes. My stomach is getting tighter by the week and I feel lucky that I'm carrying high instead of low. As much as I am uncomfortable right now, it's more than worth it. I am so excited for Stella to arrive and to have her in our family forever!

The Hargett Home

So it's been 7 1/2 months since Troy and I moved into our first home and I've been meaning to post pictures for you all to see. Today I finally decided to take some because my house is clean and I figured I better do it now before it gets messy for the week! Our home is a rambler and we were so lucky to have our basement already finished. The upstairs has our living room, kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom, two bedrooms and the master bedroom and bathroom. The basement has our entertainment room, two bedrooms, bathroom and an office. So here is the grand tour of the Hargett home:






(it's not finished, but here's a sneak peak)







(don't mind Troy taking a nap in the pic :)

(this room wasn't finished when we moved in, Troy and his brother framed and dry-walled)

We absolutely love our home and hope you all get to come see it in person soon!
