It is time for an update

Sorry I have been MIA, I don't know if any of you remember, but I was on a 3 week trip with my little sister that began in Seattle.  We then road-tripped it to Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Little Bighorn, Devil's Tower, Rapid City, South Dakota to see my older sis, Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse (kinda, from the road) and then finally home.  It was a great experience to see the things that I really have only seen in textbooks before.

Before I left on June 27th, I found out weeks prior that I am pregnant.  I am 9 weeks and 4 days today, and have already had 2 ultrasounds..and so far, so good.  Yesterday, I saw her move.  And they saw no of yet, even though we aren't out of the woods yet, as my doc said.  Yep, I called the baby a 'her" only because this pregnancy has been so different from Gabriel's.  I have so many food aversions that my nutrition is coming from oatmeal, lunchables, pasta salad with no veggies, pineapple, bagels and cream cheese or peanut butter, and french fries.  That is pretty much it.  I went to the grocery store the other day and thought I was going to get sick there in the middle of the store.  With Gabriel, I felt GREAT, I only had a chicken aversion. Of course, my little baby made road-tripping a bit difficult, making Mommy so sick, but I didn't care.

I have already started showing a little...a bit disturbing to me that it was so

Before my ultrasound yesterday, it was still hard for me to believe that she was going to be alive when I got checked out.  I barely slept.  But after hearing a lot of encouraging words from ultrasound tech and doc yesterday, I feel good.  I feel hopeful, I feel positive.  They said my baby was perfect.  I pray she stays that way. 

In fact, that is why I am updating my blog today, ready to announce that I am pregnant, and I hope Feb 18th gets here quick!


  1. CONGRATS!!! I'm so excited for you!!
