life so far....

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. But some inspiration has finally come! Matthew and I had our second Dr's appointment and ultrasound on the 26th. It was amazing! God is so great!!! What was just a dot on the screen 4 weeks now a BABY, with arms and hands, and a heart that beats 140 beats a minute!!!
As for morning sickness....well it finally caught up with me. But only for a couple of days...I have definitely been blessed in that department! I hear of women who have it everyday for the entire first trimester...some for the first 6 MONTHS! I am sooooooooo grateful!
My emotions are on overdrive right now. I cry all the time! Often times for no real reason! Which is something fairly new to me...I used to cry once every 5-6 months...this whole crying when a sad commercial comes on the tv...well, I'm starting to feel like my mom!!! (love you mom!)
I apologize that this post isn't as witty and entertaining as the past ones have been...however, hope you enjoyed it still! Pin It

Today I pondered the whole "nesting" stage and this is what I came up with...Women "nest" because there is some horrid smell in their house that they cannot stand and therefore they clean the entire thing in hopes to get rid of it! (At least that seems to be my problem!)
This apartment smells awful! The other day, Matthew and I came home and I swear it smelled like the giraffe cage at the zoo! Now, Matthew thinks that I am nuts and completely doesn't understand this whole 'my nose is 40x's stronger than his right now' issue! 
And on the whole smell issue...I dont even like the smell of my own hands! How in the world does that happen?!? It's crazy. Luckily mom gave me some new lavender/vanilla soap that seems to mask it pretty well.....for about 10 min!
All in all these first 8 weeks haven't been horrible, still no morning sickness- which is a blessing. And Matthew is being quite the sport about it all...he does the dishes most days, makes me food, lets me complain, he is being an AMAZING husband, and I love him!
Our next appointment with our Dr. is the end of this month...We're scheduled for another sonogram at that time and according to all the books and whatnot, by then the baby will actually look like a baby! YAY!
Thanks for reading! Now I'm off to do some "nesting". Until next time... Pin It

Change of Pace!

So there is a new addition the blog...because there is going to be a New addition to our family! Matthew and I are going to be having a BABY! I'm sure there will still be married-life lessons here and there, but we wanted to include y'all in our new adventure!

Right now I am about 7 weeks and due on May 21, 2010! This poses a threat to several relatives and friends! Lindsay and my sis-in-law Rochelle's birthdays are the 21st as well! My brother-in-law Matt's bday is May 17th. My flower girl Lucy Kate's bday is May 23 (I think!). Kat and Matt's aniversary is also May 23, or something like that! (If I got dates wrong, it's the baby I swear! It makes me forget things!!!) But either way....born early or late or even on time....this baby is going to steal someone's thunder!

We waited till Tues. after our first sonogram to break the news to EVERYBODY....a select few knew before that. But we just wanted to make sure everything was on track...and it seems to be!!! We saw the baby, it is only 7.3 mm right now! And we even saw and heard the heartbeat!!! It was amazing!

People have asked me how I feel, and I feel pretty good most days! I have not had any morning sickness yet! I just have a hard time sleeping...I'm physically exhausted...but this kid wont let me sleep! It's like it's preparing me for the sleepless nights to come!

As far as other symptoms real cravings, but Matthew is no longer allowed to cook with onions or garlic. The smell makes me queezy!  And I hate the smell of our smells like leftovers!
I pee ALL THE TIME! And I drink more water than I think I have had in my entire life...yet my lips are still chapped?! Hmmm...

So that is what I know right now! I will try to keep y'all updated as things for the newlyweds will be changing quickly...and we are Super Excited! Pin It
