Happy Thanksgiving!!

and Black Friday to everyone!!

I'm still swamped under the 1st trimester pregnancy fog. This kid is not being so nice to his/her momma. I don't ever remember feeling this crappy with Miss Thang:/ Oh well, I'm almost in the 2nd trimester and things should get better then. Hopefully. God willing!

Lance and I are both avid Black Friday shoppers but I was simply too tired to venture out plus my brother was suppose to be with us for thanksgiving but wound up in Australia for work (tough life he leads!) so we didn't have a Makenna watcher. So Lance went out this morning and is still standing in line at Best Buy with the tv he wanted. My mom scored me a purple cricut and 2 carts that I wanted from Wally (she's the BEST MOM EVER!!!!)  I can't wait to see it!! Now I have to sell my blue one that I bought last year on BF. So if anyone wants a very slightly used cricut cheap, let me know:)

Today we're putting up the Christmas tree and eating leftovers! YAY!! I don't plan on leaving the house all weekend!! Except to pull M around in the snow on her new sled and go to church. It's going to be great! I do need to grade papers too but that can wait!

1st appt!

We have a healthy heartbeat and very squirmy little baby in there! Just 1...thank GOD! They are keeping me at my June 13, 2011 due date so far. They said its hard to tell this early plus every baby grows differently. Next appt is in 1 month:) YAY!!

As far as the silence here.... get use to it because I am EXHAUSTED! And feeling like CRAP! Ick. I'm don't remember feeling this bad with Miss Thang.... maybe its mom's selective memory too? Who knows?! I'm taking the B6 (half a tablet) every 6 hrs to try to help and it kind of is but not enough. Only 3 more weeks until I'm out of the 1st trimester! Then, hopefully, it will get better.

Until then.....nightie night!

The Details!

or at least most of them;)

So we decided to start trying a couple of months ago...well actually its more than a couple since I'm a couple months preggo already. Anyway... I have been showing my horse like crazy so we thought we would casually try until after I'm done showing then really get to it. So I'm out in OH for the second time (the middle to end of October)....

Lance: have you gotten anything yet?

me: are you sending me something?

Lance: No. Your period.

me:  Um. Ya I'm sure I have.

Lance: this month?

me: Um.....

Lance: I don't think you have.

me: Um.... I did sometime. Right before the horse show.

Lance: You mean in Sept.

me: Oh, ya. That's the last one I remember.

Lance: I think you're pregnant.

me: Um.... no.

So the next morning I grab an ice cold diet dew out of the fridge and head to the barn. I look at the dew and think, hmmm ick. Ah what the hell? That grabs my attention because diet dew is my life line. I must be preggo because that's the only time I can't stand diet dew. So off I go to Wally to get a pregnancy test. Being the lab preson that I am, I think well I better take it in the morning because then my urine is the most concentrated (again not thinking or realizing that I'm already 7 weeks preggo and it'll show + if I sneeze on it!) So the next morning I take the test and watch what I think is the control line turn super + as soon as the urine hits it. The control line turns + a little later. I'm thinking hmmm, where's the + sign? So I'm not pregnant? Weird. I look at the test a while longer than read the box. DUMB.
1 line - 
2 line +
So I laughed at myself and my inability to accurately read a pregnancy test and the rest is history! I have my first docter's appt next Tues for blood work, the exam and to see the little stinker. So if anyone has any extra healthy baby vibes you want to throw this way, I'll take them. I always dread u/s because of what happened with Lily. I don't think I'll ever get over that feeling:/
