Poor little shingles...

I'm sitting in my house praying that the wind doesn't knock a tree through the window. I got to leave work early today because the wind is blowing so hard, several power lines are down--we can't work without power! Luckily, we still have power in our house (for now), but several shingles have gone missing, and one of the metal whirly birds (I'm sure that's not their real name) went flying off the roof. Apparently Mrs. Mary Brown found it in one of the neighbors' yards and brought it back to us. She's so sweet. :) Right now I'm just hoping we make it through the night without losing power!

My doctor's appointment is tomorrow morning, so I'm sure I'll give a better update after that. We're supposed to hear the heartbeat--yay!!! I did go shopping with Mom in Memphis a couple of weeks ago, and I am already wearing maternity pants. "But Rachel, you're just now hitting the 3 month mark!" Oh, I know. Believe me, I know. I still haven't gained much weight--I guess the doctor will tell me how much tomorrow. All this to say, tomorrow's update will be better. Stay tuned. :)

Fun, fun! New maternity clothes! I hope you all stay safe with all that wind. We have the same thing here -- dropped from 73 to 19 degrees from noon to now (it's 6:20 p.m.!). Brrrrrrrrrr! Can't wait to hear how the doctor's appointment goes tomorrow. We'll be praying for a safe pregnancy!
