So I love to read other peoples blogs, i just find it interesting & its a good way to keep up with people you may not see often! One of the blogs I read the writer is pregnant as well & is 3 weeks further along than I am so its neat to see what i can expect in the up coming weeks! One of my favorite blogs is White and Fluffy, its a food blog as well as whats going on in my life blog & she writes weekly so that's awesome. There is only problem....all of a sudden the thought of certain foods just make my stomach churn! So i have to skip over some parts unless it just sounds good and in that case i will probably be cooking it for dinner! Cooking dinner here lately has been a chore b/c my usual menu has a few items that just make me gag at the thought of them. So far I've been lucky enough that I'm not experiencing a lot of nausea but definitely food aversions & they are just as bad! I refuse to through out some of my left overs b/c just the thought of smelling them again kills me! I must say I'm pretty blessed i will take this any day over hugging the toilet!

My nightly routine used to be go to bed around 11, I am now lucky if I make it to 9! The other night it was about 8:30 and i asked Joseph if he was ready for bed....he just looked at me and laughed....I don't think he gets it! Luckily his mom & sister came over the next day and kinda put it into perceptive for him. I can go to bed at 7:30 wake up at 8:00 and still be SOOOOOOOO tired! They say in about 5 weeks I should overcome this and be a ball of fire! Well i can't wait and neither can my house...we have had so much going on mixed w/ my fatigue I'm very behind on laundry. :(

So far everything is going good, I have a doctor apointment on September 30th and i get another ultrasound!! :) Can't wait!!!

1st Doctors Apt....

So we had our first doctors appointment yesterday, i was stressing b/c due to our crazy busy schedule at work i wasn't sure Joseph would be able to make it! I wasn't OK with anyone but him going b/c it deserved to see his kid first and b/c its different to be there rather that just see a black and white picture. Dr. Tran explained so much to he and I that i thought it was really neat.

So to start our day we went to lunch at Olive Garden & of course I ate too much and didn't feel that great! :) I then told Joseph to enter the Hospital vs. the Professional building so we had to do a bit of walking, but we got to the apt. with a few minutes to spare. When they called me back they asked some question & they were going to do exam so Joseph decided that he would go to the waiting room until time for the ultrasound, it was kinda funny but i don't blame him at all! The nurse calculated my due date and said i was 3 weeks pregnant.....i was like ummm what date did you use & she calculated it wrong for sure. According to the CORRECT calculations she said i was 7 weeks and 6 day due on April 29th. So then Dr.Tran came in and she was shocked that i was back so soon, as was I! At last the moment I was waiting for time for the ultrasound...so Joseph came back in! She said look at the screen...you see that blinking that's your babies heart beat, we were both amazed at how small it was (weeks 6 is the size of a blueberry). She measured the embryo and it measured 6weeks and 1 day & then she measured the sack and it was 6 weeks and 1 day so that was good news! May 11th is our little ones due date. Everything checked out great, she even printed us out a picture:

But...of course they had to ruin my high ... i had to have blood drawn...8 vials at that! I usually pass out, in fact i passed out 2 months ago when i had my first appointment with her! This time I was good though I had them talk to me and it was smooth sailing! I go back on September 30th for another ultrasound to verify the date & size. So we had a great first appointment, we stocked up on all kinds of information & prenatal vitamins...it was like trick or treating the bag was FULL! When taking our HIKE back to the car I was looking at the pic, and I said you know Joseph I think it looks just like you...hahaah! :P

So after our appointment we ran all over Pearland getting all the many things we needed & finally got home around 6:30 or 7 (we started at 11:00)! Once i got home and we were relaxing my mom said post it on fb already I'm ready to tell my friends I'm going to be a Meme! So now the world knows and is preparing for Baby Penney to enter the world! Everyone has been asking what are you hoping for, but really I don't care I just want a baby. I always thought I would want a boy first but really just a healthy baby will be just fine with me...of course Joseph wants a little boy but would be thrilled with a little girl!

So much...

We have had a crazy busy year, weddings have over consumed our life...but thats awesome we have been a part of so many peoples important day! I've learned so much through it though beings that i had just got married the year before...if you haven't been a bride then you don't understand how important your bridesmaids are to you. So to Brittney i wasn't one when i was in your wedding and I apologize b/c i sucked now that i looked back! You don't realize how important it is to attend the shower, the bachelorette party, help out with the little nick knacks, but most of all just make yourself available to just listen! I'm so glad that I got married first so that i knew these things and was able to help out! :) This weekend will be our last wedding, kinda sad but at the same time I'm thankful! Steph & Trav are two of our closest friends and i can't wait to see them & be a part of their very very special day! :)

Now that we have news of a baby I'm so ready for life to calm down, it will i know...well in some ways but others it will only pick up! 9 months really isn't that much time...not to re do a room & make it a perfect sanctuary for my precious little one! It's going to be over in a flash! My dear friend Brandi just had her beautiful baby girl Tenley Blake, i can remember the day she wrote on the kids menu at LaCasona "I'M PREGNANT"! Geez, that wasn't that long ago! Beings that i have the holidays to consume most of my pregnancy it will be over even sooner! November we should find out if it will be a boy or girl & thats only a few months away! Time flys by so fast these days!
I've been feeling pretty good, I can tell that my emotions are a little out of whack...crying isn't hard to do! In the first few weeks nausea was really bad but has began to subside...I'm not complaining! I look forward to Fridays even more now b/c I get an email saying how my little one will be changing this week! It's so crazy to believe i have a life inside of me...but amazing at the same time!

Big News....

The past few weeks i just haven't felt good. I've been having hot flashes, getting nauseous all of a sudden, constantly tired going to bed at 8 is awesome, and parts of my body just ache. So Joseph's sisters invited us out to dinner Sunday night & before we went i figured i better take a pregnancy test just see if i was...since we would probably drink some wine. So i went to the store & got it knowing it would be negative like the other 50 thousand i had taken in the past year....much to my surprise i finally got a positive! I was in such shock I definitely didn't think it was going to come this easy b/c next month i was supposed to be put on fertility meds. due to my PCOS causing issues. So i yell for Joseph to hurry up and come here b/c i was in disbelief....I said I just took this b/c of the way i have been feeling (he knew i hadn't been feeling A+). He was excited but wasn't sure....I have been taking Provera and it makes my cycle come....well i had just taken it 7 days before so he & I both weren't sure if maybe this could produce a +. Thank the LORD FOR GOOGLE!! I googled it and it can actually be beneficial...it is basically progesterone (a hormone your body uses a lot while pregnant). So we went to dinner shared the news w/ just his sisters! I took another test the following morning and again we got another +... as soon as I rolled out of bed to go and walked out Joseph said WHAT DID IT SAY!

We are so happy....so I went to wal mart to buy some Onesies for our moms that said "What happens and Grandmas stays at Grandmas" thinking this would be a cute idea even though Joseph wasn't thinking so.

So that afternoon we went to tell our parents and they were ecstatic, altough neither of them caught onto why i got them a onesie...i had to explain it ok I'm PREGNANT! Thinking we would hold out on telling most people until after the doctors appointment on the 16th we said to keep it quiet...even though they didn't listen but that was ok b/c i couldn't keep it any longer either! So a few people already know and if you're reading this YOU KNOW!! :) I would say I will be 7 weeks on Friday the 10th according to the calculator on thebump.com. It's still not real to me...I just can't believe it! I wouldn't have thought that within the first 2 months I would end up pregnant! So now of course my day consists of BABY stuff....nursery bedding, reading up on info, names, what the baby is like at the moment! Keep checking back I will try and keep this updated!
