Our big announcment

Where have I been for the last 3 months?  I actually wrote this post on April 29 but never got around to posting.  Whoops!  I can blame it on Pregnancy Brain, right?  Anywho, I thought better late than never! :)

April 29, 2012 

We are expecting a B-A-B-Y!  Brady and I are so excited to be adding to our little family.  I can't wait to meet the little guy or girl. 

I found out on St Patricks Day.  That day was pretty hectic. We had a bunch of company over so I waited until the next morning to tell Brady.  I got up early and made him breakfast in bed, which is not common.  He was like, "Ummm what is this all about?"  Then I gave him the stick that I had peed on..  I waited until he was done eating to give it to him.. to avoid germs and all.  He was shocked and very happy. 

So far, my pregnancy has been a bit of a nightmare in the morning sickness dept.  Whoever named it "morning sickness' is just silly and cruel, or perhaps it was a guy?  If they named it "all the time-day and night-sickness" people might never have children.  There have been a few times that I think Brady thought I was dying and the sound of vomiting has become a regular annoyance to him.  What, TMI?  Too bad!  The thought of carrots makes me sick to my stomach.  I am loving muffins.  I've decide to stick to foods that taste reasonable when coming back up.  TMI again?  So sorry!  There were a few times that I thought every woman who ever had more than one child was out of her freaking mind.  I still can not believe my Grandma had to go through this 9 times.  She was one strong lady!  Luckily around the 10th week, my morning sickness started to fade.  My doc prescribed me something for it, just in time for it to go away naturally. 

My first Doctor visit was really eye opening and exciting.  The ultra sound made me cry like a baby.. well that's probably an exaggeration, I guess I'll find out in November.  Our baby was moving its tiny arms like a crazy person and the heart was beating away.  Everything looks good so far!  This is baby at 10 weeks..  *sorry for the sideways pics*

That's one huge head.  I guess it takes after Brady! lol

My due date is November 16, 2012.  Hopefully he or she won't come on my Birthday, November 12.  Call me crazy, but I'd still like to be able to celebrate my B-day in the future, seperatly!

And then I had my lab work done.  I can not believe how much blood they suck out of you.  It is just so much work to be pregnant!  I keep telling Brady that he got off easy. 

He really hasn't gotten off too easy though.  He's had to take over the majority of our house hold chores and he's kind of had to cater to my needs.  But I don't think he minds.  The biggest difference to him is probably that I'm always too tired to hang out with him.  I literally can't keep my eyes open past 7:30 on most nights!

Foods.  So far, I've been avoiding the things they say not to eat.  However, I am actually really missing caffeine and deli meat.  I still need a cup of jo every now and then so that I won't fall asleep mid sentence at work.  And deli meat, I sometimes sneak it.  I figure, if 30 yrs ago people continued to drink and smoke, and today people can still have a perfectly fine Meth baby?, why can't I have a freaking turkey sandwich!!?
My Body.  I have yet to get a visible baby bump, but it's still so early.  My skin is super dry and breaking out, thanks baby.  And I am bloated, thanks again! 

Our nursery is going to be going in my current home office.  Isn't it crazy that I just finished that room and made it perfectly how I wanted it..  Just so it could be moved again in a few months.  Oh well!  I'd rather have a baby in that room than an office we hardly(more like never) use.

Brady traded in his SS truck and got a more baby friendly car.  He actually didn't really have the baby in mind when he bought it, but I can pretend.  His old truck was four door, but it was an extended cab and I couldn't imagine having to get a car seat of those tiny doors.  His new truck, a Hummer 3, is perfect for a baby.  It even has DVD and TV's in the headrests which will be perfect for the baby someday.

  1. Was just thinking it had been way too long since I've seen a post from you! :) I know, it doesn't seem fair that some people seem to get away with no morning sickness at all and others (me and you) are completely miserable. If its any consolation, I wasn't as sick the second time and I had help with drugs the 3rd time. And you don't gain as much weight- a nice bonus.
    Happy for you guys!


Hey guys.. be honest now !!
