Sometimes you just have to be a little silly. :) 

{I found these photos on J's computer.. they were taken two or three years ago.. 
while we were super bored one night obviously! ha}

Date Night

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Last night we went to a drive-in movie theatre. It was my first time to go to drive-in, and it definitely won't be my last because I loved it! We payed $8 per person and we were able to see two new movies (We saw Incepti*on and Gr0wn Ups. I didn't like Incept!on.. it was trippy and I didn't understand it.. but I loved Gr0wn Ups! We were seriously laughing through the whole movie!) from the comfort of our car.. which was great because I hate going to movie theatres and having to sit super close to a stranger. The best part of going to the drive-in though was that I was able to go in my pajamas! haha

Glamorous?? Not So Much..

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I honestly feel like I'm in a huge rut. This pregnancy has been sucking me dry of all my energy, and I'm worried my husband is secretly disgusted by me right now. J constantly reassures me that I'm beautiful and his feelings for me have not changed, but I still worry that he will get sick of seeing his wife laying around looking a mess in her pajamas all day. (In my head I make up for it because I atleast shave my legs and shower every night. Sad, I know.) Call me naive but I always pictured myself being this joyful, glamorous pregnant woman... and right now I just feel blah & disgusting. *Please tell me I'm not the only pregnant woman that has experienced this??* I see other pregnant women that look amazing and are all put together, and it only makes me feel worse. What am I doing wrong?? What is their secret??

P.S. - I promise once I start feeling better I will post more often and leave more comments on your blogs.

First Glimpse

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

I had my first ultrasound this morning! It definitely made this become real to me! (I drive J nuts because I'm constantly questioning whether there is really a baby in there. ha) We were unable to hear the heartbeat which was a bummer, BUT we were able to see it flutter on the screen which was just as good for us. I wish I could have taken a picture of the smile that was on J's face the entire time--it was priceless! :)
Everything looked great.. but at one point the doctor did freak me out a bit. She was looking at my ovaries and saw something that looked "interesting." Below one of my ovaries was what appeared to be an extra ovary. On the screen it looked like sunglasses. (Yeah, leave it to me to be a freakshow right!) The doctor started taking extra photos so she could have someone else look at it because she kept saying she had never seen anything like it before. Somewhere in the middle of trying not to have a panic attack it finally clicked in my head to mention that I had taken Clomid... My comment was followed by "ohhhh..... well.. that explains it." Apparently taking Clomid can overstimulate your ovaries.. so the thing that appeared to be an extra ovary was just an extra follicle caused by the Clomid.

So without further ado... here is our tiny miracle.. :)

Prego Update

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

As far as I know everything with the pregnancy has been going well. I've been feeling fine but I still haven't been able to see a doctor. I have an appointment next week but it's just to see a nurse to go over my medical history. Who knows when I will see a doctor for an exam! Oh, but I was able to set up an ultrasound.. I will be almost 11 weeks by the time I have it done. Having your first ultrasound that late doesn't seem normal to me, but what can I do?

Like I said though, I've been feeling fine so I'm trying not to worry too much. (Do I even need to tell y'all that I'm paranoid about everything especially since I haven't seen a doc to make sure everything is alright..??) I've only had morning sickness twice. (It wasn't fun in case you were wondering.) I've mostly just been super SUPER tired. I usually don't want to do anything but lay around which makes me feel like a lazy bum.. and I've been super emotional so I usually cry to J and apologize a million times for feeling so lazy. J has been amazing though. He constantly reassures me that it's ok and that I have every right to lay around all day because I'm makin' a baby. :)

My cravings have already started.. I've been craving tons of veggies, fruits, Cap'n Crunch cereal, and potato soup. Certain things I use to love (like french fries) I can now barely eat, and I usually have to force myself to eat meats.

I can't wait to start showing.. Right now I just feel and look fat & bloated. When did y'all start to show??

Greetings From WA!

We arrived in Washington last Friday. So far it's not too bad... The housing is old though, which is a bummer since we had a brand new house in MS. Oh, and we don't have a backyard for Max like they told us we would. Our lease is up in 6 months so hopefully we will learn the area and be able to find a house out in town by then.

Our household goods arrived yesterday. I was worried the movers would break our stuff and well.. they didn't let me down. We still have tons of boxes to unpack but so far we know that they broke our [brand new] coffee table, a side table I had in our living room, and an Easter decoration that my mom bought me. I'm crossing my fingers and praying they didn't break anything else!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great day! Once we get everything unpacked I will have to take some time out to catch up on everyone's blogs! :)
