and baby makes 3!

I'm pregnant. :) I announced it on my last post, if you didn't read it, which I don't blame you if you haven't, because quite frankly, my blog isn't all that exciting but the big announcement has been made, only on my blog, not on facebook, per my hubs request. He is not to fond of facebook. That's a whole other post, haha.

So, I am transforming my blog and making it about all things pregnancy, baby and things of that nature. I'm excited to be able to write about my journey being pregnant and for my friends and family far away to follow my journey. First off, I want to say that I am beyond blessed that God is giving this experience and journey to Brandon and I. I've always wanted to be a mom. I love babies, toddlers, kids, teens, etc. I grew up playing " babies" and I was the best mom to those babies. I've dreamed about what my babies will look like, I've tossed around names for years and now, in less than 8 months, my dreams are going to come true. I have prayed for my future children and my future pregnancies. I am lucky enough to have found my soul mate and now I am lucky enough to have the experience that God created for women, being a mom. I am so blessed. Just about 2-3 weeks before I found out I was pregnant, I really dedicated my prayer time to praying about my future children. I wanted God to know how I felt and hear me talk to him about my feelings and emotions about children. Of course, Brandon and I firmly believe that God has chosen us to parent a child according to his will and we will raise our baby in the likeness of the Lord. But also, we firmly understand that this is exactly what God wanted for us in this season of our lives.

Let me kind of give you a run down on how everything happened. Ok - get your mind out of the gutter, I don't mean " how it happened", I mean how we found out, etc.

December 16 - (Found out I am pregnant) Just a normal day at work. Actually, it was a great day because it was Thursday, the day before my last day at work before the christmas break. One of my best friends called me to have dinner with her because she just moved back to Sugar Land. We were going to go to Panera Bread but first I had to go home and change my clothes. While I was home I really had to go to the bathroom, like bad. By this time, I thought to myself, hmm... my period should have come by now. And since I had to go "potty" soooo bad I thought I should just take a pregnancy test. ( I was also having some other symptoms that you can have around "that time of the month" but also during pregnancy) So I took the test, put it casually on the back of the toliet and then went to go change my clothes. At this point, I really was positive that it was going to come back negative. I casually walked back to the toliet, picked up the test and well.... IT WAS POSITIVE. But of course I had to double check! Yep, the stick doesn't lie. It was telling me the truth. At this point, I screamed so loud I scared my dogs and even myself. Brandon was still at work, he had a meeting. I called him 46 times and no answer, which is typical, even if he isn't in a meeeting. I left the house and met up with Lisa and I kept trying to call Brandon, no answer, of course. FINALLY! he called me. I told him I was pregnant, he thought I was kidding, I told him I was pregnant, he thought I was kidding and I told him one more time and he finally believed me. He was in shock but of course happy. After dinner, I ran to the store to get one more test ( i know i know, the stick doesn't lie, I already told you that). I took the 2nd test while Brandon was in the shower and within SECONDS, it came back positive. I was pregnant.

December 17 - (Scheduled my first appointment. )We told both sets of parents. We had made dinner plans with my parents Friday because we were " celebrating" our 2 week christmas vacation. We all sat down and we were just casually talking and I had asked what everyone wanted for Christmas. Of course, everyone said nothing. And thats when I said " well what if we gave you a grandbaby for christmas?" Annnnnd they all freaked out! :) They were so excited and happy and shocked! After dinner, we headed to Brandon's parents house. I asked if Brandon wanted to tell his parents and he said he wanted to. So once again, he asked his parents what they wanted for christmas and they all said nothing but his dad followed with " well it takes 9 months to make" and thats when I thought HOW THE HECK DOES HE KNOW???? Brandon then said well, its going to happen, we are having a baby! Both of his parents flew out of their chairs and ran and gave us hugs!

December 18- 25 - Called other family members and told some friends. Started to experience morning sickness, more like all day sickness. Counting down the days till my first appointment.

December 26 - 28 Left for the hill country with my parents. Pretty much had morning sickness the whole time. I managed to make it through, brought a lot of snacks and what not.

December 29 - 6 weeks and 2 days pregnant, First appointment! I was soo nervous alllllllll day! I text my mom and told her I was so nervous. I had no idea what was going to happen, well I had a clue, but you never fully know until you get there. Brandon went with me and he was nervous too. We got into the room and there was the ultrasound machine and I think thats when it became real. I saw my name on the screen and really couldn't believe my eyes. We left out appointment with a picture of our little itty bitty baby/alien and a due date. Our baby is due August 22, 2011, the same day as my Grampies birthday :)


Now onto some signs and symptoms I've been having ...

morning sickness - all day
exhausted!
boobs extremely sore
rollercoaster of emotions
sensitive to almost every smell - i told brandon we can't burn any candles in our house
sleeping horrible
breaking out in weird places
frequent urination
craving salads and water - weird huh?
no energy at all

So there you have it. The run down of days since we found out the big news along with some pregnancy woes. I still can't believe this is happening, but of course I am so happy and so thankful for everything that has happened and is going to happen in the months to come.

I ask you to join me and prayer as the next 8 months are going to be life changing, exciting and unknown. Please pray for the health of the baby and all things go according to planned.

Als0, for my family that is reading this, please feel free to leave comments that you have read my blog! I'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

love ya'll!
