us for now

I know, still no pictures... and I need to post some too! Thanks to all of you! What great love and support we have! For those of you who have asked... I am fine! I dealt with nausea at first but the only "symptom" I have really had is the acid reflux, which is horrible with some foods and not too bad with others, I always carry some chewable Maloxx with me just for those occasions! Other then that all seems well! Before I left Italy Gio and I had the first ultrasound done and got to see our little Sicilian (then just a bean) and hear it's heart beat! It was very exciting for us! Gio got emotional! We have an appointment scheduled here on Aug. 4th for the gender check... although we are still trying to figure out if we want to know! Giovanni will be here LATe on the 25th for a few weeks!!!! YEA!!!
Also to answer some of your ?'s on where this little one will be born, well we are not yet sure! Most likely we will still be in Milan. There is a chance we could be in Paris.... but not too likely that we will be back to the states. I have decided to find DR.'s that speak both languages and trust them! What else can you do? It is more important that Gio and I are together for this experience then my selfish desires to be in the U.S.A. for the delivery (it should be a lot less money too)!
On another note: I have extended my ticket to stay in Utah until Aug. 9th. Gio will leave the 8th then we will head down to Sicily to visit his family and meet our new niece from Rome. As always we are on the go. Currently Gio is in Spain and will be traveling back to the states for work in September! Always a busy guy! We sure hope you are all enjoying your summer!

WOWOWOWO! I am still so excited and just sooooo happy for you guys! I got your message the other day and I need to call you back! Things are great here! GOing back to work at the end of August. Kendyl is already getting so big and Shae is just as wild as ever! Missing you soooo! Remember when we were in Italy and you came with Sorella Trip and we stayed up all night like it was a slumber party-just trying to soak every ounce of together time up!! Such memories! Can't believe we met on MISSIONS and oh ya, remember when I was a wreck in the MTC and you were like "miss service" and totally made my whole stay there amazing! I love you Rach.

I'm so thrilled for you guys!!! I want to see your cute belly, that is if you have one yet. We need to do dinner together while Gio is here. Matt is leaving on the 3rd so lets do it before then!!

Congratulations! You are due about a month after me! That is so exciting. I am excited to hear what you guys are having! I was looking for a good pregnancy countdown thing to put on my blog, so I hope you don't mind I used the same one I found on your blog! :) Good luck with everything.
