Our First PCS/ 16 wk update

I've mentioned before that sometime within the next few months we are scheduled to PCS. This will be our first PcS. M has been at the same Base since he enlisted and that was 8 years ago. He is def looking forward to the move

I however have been apprehensive. I've been in Nc for almost two years and still don't know that many people. It was an adjustment to move away from home and leave behind my family and friends only to face doing it all over again

It doesn't help that our pcs date is constantly changing. The move was supposed to start taking place this past October but buildings weren't finished and only a select few people from headquarters moved. Trying to find a house to rent or buy is quite difficult considering we don't know the month we are moving. Not to mention the small issue that the baby is due in July

Well this past weekend I attended a Valentines day party thrown by M's captains wife. I finally met the other team wives who are all awesome. They are all moving in May or June and rumor is our report date is June 6. Well of course M knew nothing!

So today I told him we need to contact someone and get orders and soon. I know when the army wants to move us they will but since we are being referred to a maternal fetal specialist we need to figure out when we are moving and if we are soon we need to find a dr where we are moving too

And in case y'all were wandering my 16 week appointment went great. Bp was good, pulse was high but that's due to my anxiety and lovebugs heartbeat measured at 150. Boy or girl who knows. I go in tomorrow to get some labs done to test for cystic fibrosis and downs syndrome and when talking to the dr about diagnostic testing he wanted to refer me to a maternal fetal specialist since my older brother was born and died from congenital heart defects. He said I have no reason to worry they just want to make sure. The issue viewer is that there are theee on staff at the post hospital but two are deployed so the one is extremely backed up. So it may be over a month before I get in. Hence the reason we need to figure out what's going on with the move so we can plan accordingly.

So hopefully today the hubs will have some answers for us! And in only 8 more days I have my 3D ultrasound where hopefully we can find out whether LoveBugs is a boy or girl!!

And here is my 16 week pic!
