So we did the breathing test and she did see consistent "coving" which is how you compensate your breathing. It's like little blockages or something? I forget, but she said a lot of people who have untreated asthma have coving and that was what they were looking for.
SO...I might have asthma. There is another test they have to do which they can't do until I'm no longer pregnant. I don't know if they'll give me an inhaler or even if I'll still have it after I'm not pregnant?
She had a student in with her which was very imformative to me because she explained stuff to him and I got to learn, too. I heard them talking when the door was closed and it was something like, "Oh that reminds me I should find out her gestation. Can you imagine if she's having trouble now how bad it's going to be when she's further along?" Then she asked me and I told her 11 weeks and she looked at me, SHOCKED and asked if I was having twins. She said she's never seen anyone show at 11 weeks. I told her it started around 6 weeks, not quite as big but I really haven't grown too much since then.
So, I won't find out my results for about 5-7 days since a specialist has to read the results, but it was still really interesting. I'm not allowed to do any strenuous exercise, just really mild. (Not that I really can at this point, anyway. I have a hard time walking up my stairs to my apartment.)
So my first appointment with the Birth Center is July 7! I'm excited for that to see what they have to say.

So today was my breathing test, or what I thought was my breathing test. Not sure why I even went in. I basically just got a prescription for a breathing test. I'm going Friday to a hospital. I think she's trying to make sure I'm normal.

Eric came back with this huge pile of wood! I was impressed.
Eric & Josh standing with their wood they brought back. (this whole pile is one trip for each of them.)
A cute picture around the campfire.
Check out this HUGE pool! I think a crater crashed there and they decided to turn it into a pool. (that is my opinion; not fact.) The capacity is 1346!

We got to see Andi & Marc's new house (actually they've lived there about a year, I just hadn't been there yet) and go through Andi's maternity clothes that I am borrowing. The girls thought it was a fun game to try them on and run around. Yes, these are maternity shorts, not potato sacks.

Birthday Breakfast! Ever since we were kids we always have birthday breakfast. It started out with donuts, then we had birthday rolls (those pillsbury awesome ones) and this year we had Belly Stickers AND Birthday Rolls. Mmmmmmm. We also get to open presents.
I got the diaper bag I wanted!!! I've always wanted a Vera Bradley Diaper Bag. I actually called my mom to see when the sale was and I was too late; turns out it is in May, not June. I told her I was upset now because I wanted to get a Vera Bradly diaper bag at the sale and give somebody money. (cause they're like $100 normal price.) (By the way, Vera Bradley is from Fort Wayne and there's a huge sale every year, I think at least half price, maybe more.)
She said to maybe put it on my Christmas list and I was all bummed because I didn't want anybody to have to pay full price for it. Turns out, she REMEMBERED from like 3 years ago that I said I wanted one, and had a friend go to the sale and get one, this was even before she knew I was pregnant! I guess it was a "just in case" present because she knew we were trying. She is so sneaky! I also can't believe she remembered that I wanted one! It's exactly what I would have picked out, too. My Mom is the BEST!
My sisters and Mom put together a "This is your life" game. They blindfolded me and took me to different stops that were important while growing up.
This is Mrs. Boone, my piano teacher. This was a big surprise, I think it's been about 10 or 11 years since I've seen her!
They made me do little "challenges" at every stop in order to move on. I had to play something and she had to approve. I sightread this music that was on the piano. It was bad, but she said it was good because that meant I could still sightread.
This was my elementary school!
I had to climb over this in order to move on. I did better and hung from it. I did this every day during recess.
