Mumbo Jumbo
As of now, there's not much to update. Cole's been moving a lot...mostly at night. Lots of times at night, Jessa and I will be sitting on the couch watching a movie, and then I'll look over at Jessa and she'll be staring at her stomach watching Cole move. It'll even be a chick flick or something that I don't want to watch, and she'll decide to watch her stomach instead. psh...girls...

We're really excited to get into our new house. Jessa and I want to paint Cole's room. We're thinking blue sponge paint around the bottom three feet of the room, and then a border just above that. Then we'll keep the rest of the room white. :-) We have most of the bedding picked out...it's sort of a safari theme. Lots of monkeys, of course. I tried to throw a few wolves in there, but that's just not happening.

Last Friday I had my glucose test for diabetes and a test to make sure that my bladder infection was gone. Both came back normal :)

Lately I've been feeling like I'm going to pass out quite a bit. I've had to leave classes a couple times because of it. Yesterday in church it started so I had to go outside and get some air. Today I passed out in the car on the way back to Winona. Luckily my friend was driving so I was okay. I am not sure if I completely passed out or not, but I could not see or hear. I felt conscious though, so who knows. Either way, it was really scary. I called the nurse line right after and she said that it could be due to a few different things. She said not eating enough, standing for long periods of time, getting too hot, or the baby changing positions could cause it. Mostly they just cause low blood pressure which makes you pass out. I felt Cole moving a lot right before it happened, so I think that was the cause. I'm a little nervous to drive now, but I did feel it coming on so I would have been able to pull over if I was driving. I'm going to avoid driving right now and not go anywhere by myself to prevent it from happening again. Also, the nurse said that eating six small meals a day would help and to make sure I'm taking in enough fluids. I'm going to try that this week and see if it helps. Hopefully I'll be able to control it and not have it happen anymore!

Also, if you haven't heard, Matt and I are buying a house! It is actually a condo which basically means it is an apartment that we'll own. We made an offer on it last Wednesday and the accepted later that night. We are really excited! It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, new carpet, mostly new appliances, a washer and dryer and a balcony. It seems really nice and we are very excited for Cole to have a bedroom!
