Week 7











Rough week, some days are better than others. I am trying my best to not complain and just take a deep breath and be thankful for this little bean inside me but sometimes when all I wanna do all day is throw up, it's hard to be a HAPPY camper! lol. I am hoping this soon is going to pass. I think a lot of it has to do with the extra hormones I am taking, the progesterone. But if I got to take it to help my sweet baby, I will. I'll do anything for this baby :) My best friend is the couch, peppermint gum, milk, and ice water these days. I pretty much am having no cravings except ICE. I love ice these days. Everything I put in my mouth tastes differernt to me. It's so weird. I used to love coffee, now I absolutely DESPISE even the smell of it. Every morning, lying in bed I try to eat at least 3 saltine crackers before I even lift my head off the pillow. My doctor told me to take a B6 and a Unison before bed every night to help with morning nausea and it helped the first day, then didn't the following days so I decided to not even hassle with the several pills at night and just suck it up since I am feeling the same regardless. Taking pills really bothers me! Since I am not a pill person anyways, being pregnant really makes me not want to take them.




Toodles.

Our 1st Ultrasound


This was the absolute sweetest picture I have EVER seen in my whole life! I can't believe how much I already LOVE this little sweet pea growing in my belly! God's creation is ABSOLUTELY amazing! I got in there and we invited my mom and mother in-law and they weren't there yet so they took me and Stephen back and she lubed up the ultrasound thing and stuck it on the belly and immediately, found our little miracle. We were holding hands and she said "Well, everything looks great, you have a LIVE baby in there"!!! I got teared up and saw her/his little heart flickering on the screen. What a relief! We have been praying for this for so long! It made the morning sickness so worth it!! :) Thank you Jesus for this wonderful blessing!!! I am so in love!!! Due March 18th 2010!!!!! Puts me at 6 weeks 4 days!! Oh happy day!!!

Our Answer to Prayer


Baby baby baby!! Yes, that's right!! Our little baby that we have waited almost 2 years for is finally growing in my belly! I am 5 weeks 2 days pregnant and I think every Friday starts a new week! We are so thrilled! I am farther than i've ever been ! And definitely have a different feeling about this sweet baby! We found out almost 4 days before "Aunt Flo" was due to arrive so I was really surprised but I just had that feeling so I couldn't resist peeing on a stick :) And sure enough, positive!! Took about 7 different tests...crazy...I know!! But I couldn't believe it!! I have been feeling really good, excited but the tiredness is starting to kick into high gear as well as some nausea mostly in the evenings but I am so thankful everytime I get it because it is SO WORTH IT!! I am beyond thankful and so excited to have a precious bundle of love and joy to join our family of two! Daddy and mommy are praying for you sweet baby.....

Camping in Dardenelles
















After our back to back services on Sunday, my in-laws and the honey and I set off for our camping trip adventure! We bought a tent trailor that needed some work! It's a 1973 but you know what, it works for us and was very comfy to sleep in and better than the floor! We really enjoyed ourselves! We got there on Sunday around 5pm and set up camp, then the men wanted to go fishing so they made Karen & I walk down this really steep rocky cliff lol and we almost fell so many times but we made it! We had trout for dinner :) Then took a little walk and came back and roasted marshmellows! We hung out by the fire a while until I got scared that a bear was going to come up to our camp cuz we were in the same spot Stephen and the guys came up for his bachelor party and there was literally no one around us! We had it all to ourselves. We went to bed and next morning around 6am, the guys went fishing for a few hours and us girls slept :) Then we took a drive to the Sonora pass! Wow, it's high!! 9,654 elevation!!! I got a little car sick but ended up being fine thanks to an afternoon "nap" in the trailor! The boys left us again for their love affair with fishing and came back with lunch! So again, we ate trout! Then Stephen and I were dying to take a shower or I was, so we paid the $4 to shower and after that, the in-laws had to go home cuz of work on Tuesday! But Stephen and I got to stay! We had a great time together, played cards and took a long walk for firewood and of course, fished some more! I hadn't camped since 3rd grade so I wasn't really looking forward to the "great outdoors" but I really enjoyed myself and can't wait to go back!

Beach Trip











My in-laws and us went to Manresa Beach in Watsonville on Saturday the 3rd! It was so much fun! And such a beautiful day! Had to bundle up in my sweatshirt a lot but the sun finally came out around 2pm and the men hit the water in their wetsuits! I got to see so many dolphins close to shore by the surfers just jumping around! I have never saw a dolphin in the ocean before! I thought it was a shark cuz at first all I saw were their fins and I was like oh no, surfers are right by them!!!! But then my mother in-law informed me, it was a dolphin! It was so cool :) We caught some sand crabs, they don't bite by the way, just tickle your hand! Played frisbee, but lost it in the ocean eventually lol. It was a lot of fun!! Great 4th of July weekend!!!
