¡¡ One step closer !!

I got my 2nd practical back today- I was a little nervous about this one because it was a lot harder for me than the 1st one. It covered the Digestive system (Just a big tube that goes from one hole to another), Respiratory system (You're not really dealing with anything but the organs, oxygen, & blood, so it wasn't too bad. Still, harder than digestive!), & Urinary system (BY FAR the HARDEST system I've learned yet- who woulda' thought it takes SO MANY steps/structures just to make urine???). But, all is well! I studied my butt off...
& got 100%!!

Aww, the Joys!

I just wanted to write a little bit about my pregnancy(since I've been TERRIBLE about keeping a journal lately) . This is probably going to be one of those random posts, really for my memory than anything, so feel free to skip it if you'd like :).

Can I just say I love, Love, LOVE the widgets I added to my blog! I had a lot of fun picking & choosing through them- I just really like doing things that remind me of the baby! & since I don't know what the sex is, anything I do is gender neutral (BLAH)! I am DYING to know what we're having... it's just about driving me crazy! I'll like try & analyze in my head what it will be and then I realize that there's only 2 choices, & I can't change the outcome. I just want to know like NOW! I'm REALLY getting excited thinking about who this little person will be & what it'll look like! I wonder if it'll be a perfect mix between me & Anthon or it'll be one of those kids, who look nothing like their parents, that you think "Where did that kid come from??" ... Like Sydney :)!

I've felt pretty good lately- haven't thrown up since Mexico, so that's fun :). My only complaint would have to be toothpaste- the texture makes me GAG!! Anthon laughs at me every time I brush my teeth but I can't help it... it's disgusting! I've tried different brands but they're all the same- a necessary evil I guess. Well, that's about all that I've got for now. I have my next Dr. appointment on Aug. 4th so maybe I can do another update then... Thanks for listening :)!

1 A down - 3 to go!!

I got my 1st lab practical back today. It was over the heart & all the arteries/veins in the body... 95%. Can I get a WHOO-WHOO?!?! Only 3 more tests & then I'm done :)!

Summer School... It CAN be fun.

I decided to take an anatomy class during the summer session; which means they cram 6 months (a regular semester) worth of material into 4 weeks. I know, fun for me right?? Well, Anthon & I decided to make it fun... We made a deal that if I get an A then I can get my hair cut & dyed!! I have to DYING to have my hair done for a long time, but for some reason Anthon has been REALLY resistant to my pleas! Thankfully, he finally agreed to my terms & if all goes well I'll be back to being blonde before I know it- Wish me luck!!
