Meet my new Frenemy...

... and the reason I have not blogged in forever...

 These past two weeks have been miserable! I thought you were supposed to start feeling BETTER towards you 2nd trimester, not worse. At first my pregnancy went very smooth. I never threw up, and I hardly ever felt nauseous. The worst thing I had to deal with was MIGRAINES. Then all of a sudden the past two weeks I have had a MIGRAINES galore, and then throwing up all day! Not Fun!

Anyone know of anything that helps? So far nothing has worked! Hopefully I will be back to normal soon!

Sneak Peek…

Yesterday we got to get a little sneak peek of our little one! Oh my goodness can I just tell you how amazing that was! It's almost hard to put it into words! I was completely in awe!

I will be honest when we went in for the ultrasound I was a nervous wreck! I know I shouldn't have been, but I was freaking myself out. On Monday I friend of mine, who was only a week behind me, had a miscarriage. What a devastating thing to go through! I have also had quite a few friends that have recently gone through the same thing. I was so worried I would go in and have to hear the doctor tell me that he had bad news for us, but as soon as he put the Doppler on my stomach he literally found that sweet babe within seconds! It was so amazing! Oh that babe was kicking their tiny little legs and waving its tiny arms all over the place! It was such an amazing thing to watch! I could watch it all day! I wish they could have just recorded the whole thing so I could watch it over and over again! 

At one point the doctor and Spencer started talking about soccer and Salem Hills High soccer team (Spencer is the assistant coach there). They were only talking a minute or two, and the doctor apologized for bringing sports up, but I did not care, I was too busy watching the baby move all over the place! Heck they could have talked sports all day, as long as the doctor kept that Doppler right where I could watch my baby!

The doctor did the crown to rump measurements, and determined that my actual due date is October 1st, instead of the 7th! So I'm 11 weeks, instead of 10! I'm totally fine with that! The sooner I get to see my babe for real, the better!

So proud of myself!

I had to take my math test yesterday. I was dreading it! I hate math. I felt like I did alright, but when my teacher handed it back to me.


40/41!! Boo ya!!

For those of you who don't know me that well, that is AMAZING for me! Math and I are not friends, never have been. So this was very exciting for me! I am going to put this on my fridge for all to admire!

Looking for the silver lining....

Saturday night I had my younger brother, sister and her Boyfriend come over for homemade pizzas and games. Each of us made our own personal pizzas, and played some card games. We were going to watch a movie, but the pizzas took longer than anticipated so we didn't have time. So while I cleaned up a bit I had Spencer drive the kiddos home... 

Unfortunately, to my dismay, I got a not so fun phone call from Spencer saying he was in an accident and that the car was totaled. I was freaking out to say the least! It was not the kind of phone call you want to be getting. I was very thankful that my husband was not hurt. Not a scratch. I think the worst was a little whip lash. THANK GOODNESS.

The most frustrating part is that about a month ago Spencer's car broke down and we have not had the chance to get it repaired, so we have been struggling to work out our schedules with only one car. It has been hard enough...but now we are officially down to ZERO cars. Oh boy. 

Luckily we have family near by who has been so willing and helpful. Spencer's brother offered we could use their car until we figure something out. 

Although this has been very stressful I have been trying to see the silver lining in this dark cloud. So far I have been able to come up with a few silver linings... 

  • Spencer was NOT hurt! I know this could have ended much worse and I thank my lucky stars that someone upstairs was looking after him.
  • We both have amazing families who live nearby and are always there for us.
  • My car is value is much more than I paid for it, so we are hoping to actually come out on top with money. So if we buy a car for the same price I paid, the extra money will help lower my loan.
  • The accident was not Spencer's fault, so no big ticket or anything, the other guy was not only at fault but he also got arrested for a DUI. 
  • Even though car shopping can be a pain, we have actually been pretty luckily with finding quite a few cars that we like. Hopefully they will still be available when we get our money!
I know at times things may be hard, but as many people pointed out to me, that if you look close enough, you can find silver linings in those troubled times. I feel very blessed and know that we are being looked after in the long run!

Pizza, pizza

I actually had a Saturday  off, for once, so we decided to make it a fun one, and invited my little sister, her boyfriend, and my little brother over to make homemade pizzas! We have a lot of future chefs in the making if you ask me! :)

Doctor, Doctor!

Wednesday was my very FIRST prenatal appointment! Oh I was so excited, and slightly nervous! I didn't know what to expect, but it definitely put my mind at ease having my hubby there by my side. Plus my doctor was absolutely amazing! (When I was trying to figure out how to choose a doctor and what not I was totally a mess, How was a supposed to know what a good doctor would be like!? Well my sister-in- law said that she loved her doctor very much, she drives all the way down from Pleasant Grove for doctor visits). She was a very sweet, and patient doctor. She made the appointment so easy, explaining to me everything she was going to do and why. It definitely made the appointment less nerve wracking. She tried to listen for the heartbeat, but as she had warned me, it was too early to hear anything. She had told me that if we didn't hear anything not to worry, since it usually isn't until ten weeks that you can hear the heartbeat. I was a little disappointed, I was hoping we would have been able to hear it :( Oh well, I get to go back in two weeks to do an ultra sound! The doctor is going to measure my baby and determine how far along I am for sure and hopefully we will be able to hear the heartbeat this time!

Surprise, Surprise!

For our four months of being married I wanted to do something special for SpenceLuckily I didn't have to search too hard for that special gift. The day before I found out the perfect surprise for him...

So I homemade a little box and card that read... "I have really enjoyed all the adventures life with just the 2 of us..." and the inside read, "...but in 9 months baby will make 3!

It was such a fun way to announce to the hubby that we were going to have a BABY! we are so thrilled


And of course we are so excited that we could hardly wait to tell the Fam, so for Spencer's Birthday I made a shirt that said 'Happy Birthday Daddy' and wore it all night long. We waited to see who would notice first. My little sister was the first one to catch on, and everyone else was clued in real fast when she starting yelling out with excitement and giving me a hug. I thought it was a fun way to announce the pregnancy :)

Experimenting with color

My mom had showed me a quick and easy way to make baby headbands, and a very easy and cheap way to dye them different colors. SO yesterday I decided to cure my boredom by experimenting with color and seeing what colors I could come up with here are some of my results! 

all the fun colors that I was able to come up with

  a close up of some of the colors

The two pieces of the fabric I used to make the headband, easy huh?

The final result for one of the headbands.

These were so simple and very cheap! I made like five of them in a very short time!

Wishful thinking…

I never thought I would ever say I would want some of these things, and some of them may always be wishful thinking, but

I want

...this, Nikon D7000, and I want to learn how to use it

...this, not necessarily this one, per say. But I do want a sewing machine. Never thought I would say that.

.... and THIS! Vacation! Hawaii would be nice, or the Caribbean. I'm not feeling too picky at this point.

Oh wishful thinking, wishful thinking....
