6-8 weeks of being pregnant

I am going to start from the beginning and write all the things that have happened, good and bad, so I can look back one day and see all that I have endured and enjoyed!

I took a test and thought it was negative, I was so unsure because the 2nd line was so faint. So I called the Dr. They said wait 2 days and take another one, so i did and it was positive! I was so nervous and scared and i didn't know what to do or say! SO I told Jacob and he didn't believe me, he said I will believe it when i hear it from the Dr. I scheduled a conformation appointment and they said I was pregnant, probably about 6 weeks! That Wednesday we decided to tell my parents and his parents. It was his dads birthday so jacob wrote him a card and told him he had a hunting buddy on the way! They were thrilled, then we went to tell my parents, I baked cupcakes and put small pacifiers tied to a string in them. I told everyone that there was a surprise in them and they had to pull the ribbon at the same time. They did and it was mom just started eating the cupcake, chan just looked at it and ellen looked at me and her eyes got big and she said no way...a baby?! I looked at Jacob and he was smiling from ear to ear and so was my dad and shane! Then my mom realised what it was, she freaked out, so did everyone else! Lots of screaming, hugs and tears! So fun! So people started asking me " How do you feel"? I felt great so I told everyone i felt great then it hit me. It was almost 5 days later and i felt like a train hit me! I was so sick to my stomach but I couldn't throw up, It just hurt and I didnt want to eat, things started to smell bad and nothing tasted good. I thought i was going to die. I kept saying if this last all nine months i am not going to make it :( Thankfully the Dr said I could take Dramamine and it works wonders! It made me feel so much better. The only downfall was it made me sleepy. Super Sleepy on top of being exhausted all ready! I took it for a few days and then stopped and I have felt pretty good since then. Each day has gotten better, slowly but surely! I went to my first Dr appt last Thursday, I got an ultrasound and I heard the heartbeat, also talked to the Dr and he said things looked good and we are on our way! Next Dr appt 4 weeks! More updates to come...

Baby News

Well we announced on Thursday that we will be adding to our family, or maybe starting our family, which ever is correct! We are very excited about this, Jacob is more excited than I thought he would be!! I am due on February 27th which is my moms birthday! ( I am not sure why people say WE are due considering I am the one having this child! I know he is the father but I have to go through some rough stuff!) My mom said "Oh no this cant be, that is MY birthday!" She was joking, she said i had to have it early or later than the due date! I am wondering if next year is a leap year?? I have to research this...That would be bad to have my baby born on that one day that only comes every four years!! So we slowly started telling people when I felt more comfortable about it. Of course I was worried (and I still am) that anything could happen. So I thought about 8 weeks and after my first dr appt would work. There is a lot to know about being pregnant, all the test and changes in your body and things to not eat, its kinna crazy! I think I have done well so far, only one Coke a day and I have been eating more fruit and veggies. I am so so so tired everyday, I just want to sleep all day then go to be around 8 at night, and I feel sick all the time, last week was bad, thought i was dying. This week has been better, the Dr said I could take Dramamine and that helps but makes me a little more tired :( Everyone keeps saying it will go away as soon as I get out of the first trimester, I am praying for this and I sure hope its true! I just feel frumpy right now, my pants are a little tight and I am not exactly ready to move on to maternity clothes yet... I am open to any advise anyone has also I am thankful I have friends that just had a baby or are pregnant now. They feel my pain!! Thanks everyone in advance I am sure I am going to need you!!!

Crazy Puppy

There are so many stories I can write about.... Here is one that I was thinking about this morning. For some reason my Gracie loves paper, any kind of paper, toilet paper, receipts, mail, etc. One day I came home from work and found toilet paper everywhere! It was coming from the bathroom to the hall and into our bedroom. I about had a fit, the whole roll was unrolled and there was a little fluffy puppy just sitting there looking at me! Looking at her I had to laugh, how can you be mad at something so stinking cute!
This past weekend we went out of town, my sister kept Gracie for me. On Saturday morning I get a text message saying "OMG you have the worst dog in the world". I knew this could not be good. She proceeded to tell me what happened. My sister Taylor was watering the garden and the dogs were with her. Gracie found the one spot in the fence that she could escape. She ran through the mud and across the yard to the neighbors house! The neighbors house is not close at all and they have 2 huge huskies. What was she thinking?! Finally she came back and Taylor got onto her. She told me "I spanked her and locked her up on the deck" Poor Taylor, poor Gracie, maybe one day she will learn to listen! She listens to her dad and will stop in her tracks when he gets onto her, but me yeah right she runs all over me! Hopefully our children wont be the same way! She is a nut but I wouldn't change a thing about her, she is so sweet and has the best personality a dog can have!!
