A little scare...

I had a very busy weekend! On Saturday we had a wedding in Lancaster and a reception in Kahoka. It was fun! There was Karaoke, and that is always a good time. I told Erin that it was like watching the first two weeks of American Idol. There was no alcohol, but I think that made it even more hilarious! Sunday I had to get up and help my mom get things ready for the annual Relay for Life Gospel Sing. It started at two and ended at four. We then went over to my mother-in-laws house to visit before we headed home.

When we got home, I went to the bathroom and realized that I was spotting. I of course started freaking out and was so scared. I went to bed, but could not sleep. I, of course, was thinking of the worst case scenario. I had every baby book I owned out. They were not very reassuring. When I woke up I was fine, but not after I took a shower. I was hysterical and chose to not go to work, and went to the Dr. James took the day off and took me. By the time I got to the Dr. I had stopped bleeding, but I couldn't help but be scared. She did an ultrasound, and there was my baby. One and half inches, heartbeat of 180, moving arms and legs. I am crying just thinking about the relief I felt. I may have jumped to conclusions, but I would rather be safe than sorry. The Dr. said that the baby and I were the picture of health and it could have been caused by anything and is very common. I have not bled at all since I have been home and feel fine. Thank God for my amazing miracle!

Spring Has Sprung!

Finally, outside, no jacket, breeze blowing. I can't wait until this Spring/Summer, when Adi and I can go on walks and play outside during the day. Last year she still seemed so tiny to me, and we didn't get our as much as I would have liked. This year will be different. I can't wait. I don't know if I have ever felt quite as excited to hang out outside as I am now. I am going to pretend that the weather is not going to change in the next few days. Enjoy the sun!!!!

Just Thinking

What will I call my blog if my new baby is a boy?


I have to say that this has been one of the longest weeks I have experienced in awhile. I am ready for it to be DONE. I have conferences tomorrow, and of course I have one at 6:45. That is the last time of the night, so I know I won't be out by 7:00. Conferences aren't bad. I just think I am still not feeling great, so my attitude kinda stinks. I am going to work on that, so I can enjoy this weekend. I didn't get to enjoy last weekend, because we took my dad out for birthday supper on Friday, and I am pretty sure that I got food poisoning. I was up at 4:30 getting sick and did so seven more times that day. I ended up staying in Kahoka again Sat. night, because I could hardly sit up.

This weekend will be better. Friday I have to make a cake for a 1st birthday party. Happy birthday Maddie! Sat. morning we are going to go and help them celebrate. Adi and Maddie will be in the same class, so I am sure they will be best friends. They might as well start now. :) Sunday I plan on going to church and taking nap. I'll probably clean also, but I am not going to make any commitment.

Just me and my twin baby. We were dressed alike on Monday. I LOVE to have us dress us alike or make sure that we are color coordinated. I know. It's a little weird. Bless my poor children. They will match until I can no longer tell them what to wear. I am just kidding. ( sort of :))

I just wanted Andrea to know that I finally added some more blogs to my blog roll so that I wouldn't have to use hers to find the links :) Now my life will be much simpler. I hope that everyone has a great weekend and enjoys this beautiful weather. Don't forget to SPRING forward this weekend.


Isn't this weather just what everyone needed?

P.S. Happy 44th Birthday Daddy!!!

1000 Word Thusday

Some days I don't think that anything has grown, but her hair.

A Little Update...

I went to the Dr. on Monday so I thought that I could give a little more detail about the NEW baby. I will be 7 weeks on Friday, and my due date is Oct. 24th. I am so excited, because I think that will be the perfect time of year. I have said since we started trying that I wanted an October baby. Not only is it the most beautiful month, if everything goes according to plan, I will be able to take off until after Christmas break! The only thing that worries me, is that I am going to be in a wedding on Oct. 3rd. I hope that I will be able to fulfill my duties. I know that I will be very round, but I am ok with that.

My Dr. does an ultrasound at all of her first appointments, so I knew I had that to look forward to. We got to see the heart beat. It was so amazing! I don't know if it hadn't hit me yet with Adi, but it made me much more emotional this time. It is crazy to see that baby, that is the size of a grain of rice, and see a heart beating in its chest. If there is anyone that can see that and still not believe in God... What a miracle.

As far as my health goes... Let's just say that I got spoiled with Adi. I didn't have a huge appetite, so I didn't gain much weight. I was never sick. I threw up only a handful of times, and most of that was at the end of my pregnancy. I wasn't super tired. ( I also didn't have a 15 month old) I had high blood pressure at the end, but I wasn't unhealthy. So far it has been quite the opposite. Sick. Yes. Puking. Yes. Hungry. YES! Tired. yes. No high blood pressure, YET. It is all worth it, but I hope the difference in pregnancies could mean potential for a boy. I would take either though, as long as it's healthy:)
