My Mother's Day

I had a fantastic day that began with getting presents from my best guys. I got a huge basket of goodies from Bath and Body Works in my favorite scent---Warm Sugar Vanilla. Then I got 2 dozen pink roses and two of the best cards ever. The one from my husband made me cry, I can tell he put a lot of thought into it. He is such an amazing husband. I almost forgot, I also got 2 Bella Bands and some Nike flip flops too. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet.

The pregnancy is going well. Still really early so nothing to report. I am always tired, but I am on a waking up at 6:00 am kick lately and I wish that would stop. Other than that nothing too exciting.

Guess that's it for now. Talk to you all later!

Back from the doctor!!!

I had an amazing trip to the doctors today. I wasn't able to see the Dr. because he had a c-section to handle so I saw the midwife instead. She was great. Not much else to report, I am infact pregnant and I am around 4 weeks. I go in on Thursday for a glucose test because of a history of gestational diabetes. After that I go in again on June 5th for my first U/S. I am so excited I can't wait.

First Dr appt

Today is my first appointment. I know they won't be able to tell me much at 4 weeks 2 days, but they wanted me in now so who am I to complain? I go in at 2:00 central time. I was suppose to have a dentist appointment at 3:00 today too, but they cancelled it until I can get a note from my doctor saying it is okay for them to clean my teeth.

Let's see what else is going on? We lost the ball game bad last night (like 28-7). We didn't do horrible, but the other team was REALLY good. I enjoyed seeing DH play as he was the oldest one on the field and he still kept up with the youngins. It was the last game of the season and we had to rally the troops just to have enough players anyway. I chased a few foul balls and my body says whoa okay that is enough of that crap. My hips hurt already if I do to much activity.

We got a bonus check yesterday so we will be doing some major shopping this weekend. We hope to get our kitchen stuff (pans, dishes etc). I will post pics when we get them. We may change our minds though and buy something else. The little guy is ready for a toddler bed, and we may brave the "but you'll jinx it" rumors and buy some baby stuff.

Blah blah blah okay I will quit yapping now. Hope you enjoy your Friday! I will update after the appt.

~~4 Weeks~~

I am so excited! I want to shout from the roof tops. Still really early, but I am already thinking about names (see last entry) and what we need to buy. I am a little nervous, but not as bad as I was with my son. So this will be my first weekly pregnancy post (I know I said I would do them on Mondays, but my week begins on a Wednesday so here you have it).

Weight gain: zero
Morning sickness: only slight nausea very early in the morning (3am or so)
How far along: 4 weeks exactly
Dr appt: Friday at 2:00pm (cst)
Gender: Don't know yet, but feel free to send me all the pink dust you got ;)
Belly pics: Not yet, it is too early and since I am a PSMTB (That would be plus size mommy-to-be) it will take me longer to actually show.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask in the comments I will respond.
Have a great day!!!

How we celebrated (and ramblings)

When hubby got home last night we went out for Chinese food and I pretty much ate the whole buffet haha. After that we went to Walmart so I could get some PNV (is that one on the list?), and some new magazines. I told my mom via text message with a pic of the BFP and the title was guess what. She said "are you sure" lol...moms *sigh*.

I am still excited, but the shaking has subsided. I had my first little nausea this morning but nothing big. Tomorrow I will be 4 weeks and I started my belly pic collection, but I won't post any until I have something to show.

I have a list of names going too. You can vote on them at

It is an on going list so check back often for new names to vote on.

Tonight we are going to the company softball game. Awesomeness for gooey nachos with jalapenos and fresh lemonade.

I am totally KTFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can not believe it, and sorry it took me so long to post my blog update I was finally able to stop shaking.

Due date: Jan 13th, 2010
Symptoms: Sore nipples just starting today.

Begining next week I will post a pregnancy question blog every Monday and eventually I will post belly pics and U/S pics here too.

My weekend shopping find

What can I say? My husband loves me! This is our new bathroom decor. Well it will be when we move, right now it is in storage. The only things I couldn't find a pic for are the soap dispenser, the soap dish, and the toothbrush holder. This was the first of many purchases we will be making in the upcoming months to make sure we are ready for a new place when it comes time. Next on the shopping list is the kitchen. The shower curtainThe tub mat

The toilet seat

The shower hooks

The trash can

The cup holder

The toilet brush

10 DPO

This chart is wrong now so don't pay any mind to it, the temp on 10DPO was not correct!!!!!!!
There she is...the prettiest chart I have ever seen. I bought some FRER (don't think that one is on my terms is First Response Early Response) tests last night, but I am too nervous to take one. I don't think I have ever been nervous to take an HPT (well there was that one time in highschool). My BBT has never gone up that high before that I recall, but I don't want to see that BFN. I have zero signs of being KTFU, but that could mean jack.

On another note we are making a little road trip today to Laredo so DH's new guy can pick up the company truck from the guy that broke his foot and is out for at least 2 months. That oughta be fun *insert eye roll here*. At least I have happy pills from the tooth extraction to keep me occupied.

Well I suppose that is all I have to say for now. I will come back later and talk some more. Everyone have a great weekend!!!
