So I finally heard back from my doctor's office today. My ultrasound was normal. This is definitely good news. I'm weirded out by having severe pain in my side for weeks and weeks with no explanation, but I'm OK with that. And while it's been bothering me a little bit today, it's nothing like it was. Somehow, the start of this week seems to be marking the point of it getting better. I'm so glad! Just having it not hurt all day yesterday made me feel great. I went out with Justin to run some errands after work, and then got home and hung out with him in the living room... Just like a normal person! I feel sheepish having been complaining for so long and not having any sort of reason for it, but the only thing I can say is that I wasn't imagining it!

One thing we've been working on is baby names. We've got the boy list and the girl list whittled down to three names each. We're working on middle names, too, so each name has roughly 3 options when you include the middle name. I think we'll try to get the whole name worked out for all three of each gender, and then we'll just have three names to choose from once the baby is born. It's like a geometry proof...

I've been perusing the baby announcements on my favorite website, www.etsy.com, and it is starting to make me think I'd like to make my own. We'll see about that though... I just like looking at some of the interesting things people do. Some are REALLY terrible, with excessive amounts of bows and lace and lambs and any other baby thing you can think of. It's like a giant bundle of overkill. I actually found an article on the Martha Stewart website with cute ideas about making your own. And they really were cute. Surprisingly, a lot of Martha Stewart's craft ideas are really amazing. Please don't tell anyone I said that.

Well, I'm going to get back to work, doubly refreshed knowing that I don't have a gall bladder on the verge of bursting. :)

Elizabeth is also Kaitlin's middle name. I've always liked it. Sooo, you've narrowed it down to three names each?? Please do tell!! I'm so curious.

I'm sorry about your grandmother. You have our symphathies.
