A long day! (written on 1/28/11)

By on

Today has felt like a very long day. I didn’t get the best nights sleep last night since I was upset over some news my Dad told me and then I had nightmares.
My Dad told me last night that when Tyson has his teeth cleaned and they did an X-Ray on his nose it didn’t look good. He thinks it is cancer and after researching online I do too. He needs to see a specialist but from what I have read the prognosis is terrible. I don’t know what I am going to do. I am devastated. He has been my baby for 5 years. In fact it has been 5 years this month since I got him. I got him at 2 years old so he is 7.
I also had 2 labs today and the first one was so annoying and the second we had a quiz and it was freaking hard. My two friends and I left there thinking what the heck was that.
Then I got home around 5 and we took the dogs to the dog park since it was Tanner and Simon’s birthdays. They are 3! We had fun with them. They love walking around and seeing other dogs. The weather was perfect for it. I hate when its really hot and we can’t stay long.
After that we went to dinner with our roommate Daniel. We went to see our friend Jimmy at Longhorn and so it was pretty nice.
Then we got home and I had a melt down over Tyson having cancer. I am so sad about this. I can’t even explain it. I can not imagine parents that have to deal with this for their children. We know our dogs will die usually around 10 to 12 years of age but when you have this precious 7 year old little guy who could live longer then 12 since he is a tiny dog (my mom’s dog is a shih tzu/maltese mix and is 16) I never thought I would have to deal with him having cancer and dying. I just have to pray he doesn’t suffer in any way.
Now that I am depressed I am going to get off here. At least tomorrow I don’t have work or school and can go lay out with my friend Maggie at my parents by their new pool! Tyson will be spending the day with us since I am going to take him wherever I can.

Gay Pride Baby!

By on January 28, 2011

I can’t even handle the cuteness of this. My baby will be sporting this since he or she will be totally loved by his or her lesbian aunts which is my best friend and her wife. I love them to death and my best friend is basically a sister to me.

Daybed?

By on January 25, 2011

I am thinking of getting a day bed for the nursery. I think it will be nice to have a bed in there in case there is a long night with the baby or if we have a guest. Has anyone put a bed in their nursery and did it get a decent amount of use? Was it worth the buy? I am debating between these two at IKEA. The baby’s furniture is white but I love the design of the darker one.

12 week’s and ultrasound!

By on January 22, 2011
12 weeks 4 days!

We had our 12 week NT scan on Thursday morning. It was amazing. The baby was jumping like it was on a trampoline. At first the baby was just lying there and it scared me but then it was moving around and jumping and flipping. It looked like it was having the best time. The baby also measured about 4 days ahead and so the ultrasound showed the baby was due around July 31st but they won’t change my due date since it is less then 5 days ahead. I think if the baby is still measuring ahead at the next one I will change my ticker at least. I wonder if the baby will be born on our anniversary! We also announced the pregnancy on facebook and got so many nice comments. There are so many great people we know.
We got back in a few weeks to find out the baby’s gender. It was hard to see on this ultrasound. She said she thought she didn’t see something then she thought she did but couldn’t be sure. Not sure if that something meant a boy or if she just meant she might be able to tell. Either way we are doing the gender party so I will tell her to not tell us and write it down and we will give it to Ash and she will have the baker make a cake with pink or blue in the middle!

How far along? 12 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: -2lbs
Maternity clothes? Wearing my normal clothes still
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: It’s been better.
Best moment this week: The 12 week ultrasound, the baby is a jumping bug!
Movement: only saw it on the ultrasound but can’t feel it.
Food cravings: Mac and Cheese.
Gender: Thinking Boy but we are just excited to find out either way we don’t care what we have.
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out? Innie
What I miss: Hot tubs!
What I am looking forward to: the gender ultrasound
Weekly Wisdom: Have your husband pamper you
Milestones: watching the baby jump around on the ultrasound. Making to the end of the first trimester!

Another Er visit

By on

This past week has been so hectic. My classes started back up and I go Tuesday, Thursday and Friday then babysit Monday from 8am to 6pm and Wednesday from 8am to 6pm then from 7:45 to about 10 or so then Thursday night babysit around the same time except this Thursday it was 7:15 to about 11:45. Well by Thursday night I was so sick. I thought I had gotten over the cold I had but it seemed to be back in action on Thursday. My friend Ali from class said she had a fever and felt horrible so of course I got whatever she had. I didn’t sleep at all Thursday night so I called my doctor and made an appointment and missed my classes on Friday. I was given an antibiotic and told I could take Robutussin for my cough. I went home slept and woke up feeling worse. I had a bit of a fever at 101.1 and just couldn’t eat or drink anything. Then by that night forget it, I was a mess. I woke up twice and threw up, which was basically nothing since I had barely eaten or drank anything. I kept getting really hot and achey all over. The next morning my Mom came over and called my doctor and he called back and said go to the ER since you are pregnant. You don’t want to risk anything. So we went. They gave me fluids, Tamaflu and some Tylenol with codeine to help with my cough and so I could sleep. I finally felt better after all that and was able to go home. I have felt a lot better since but still have a terrible cough. I feel a bit tired still but at least I am not aching all over, that felt like the worst part in a way.
As for everything else, I am doing ok. I have the 12 week NT scan on Thursday! I am incredibly excited about that. I need to do an 11 week update but I probably won’t do a belly pic since I am in bed but I basically look the same.

Ultrasound!

By on January 11, 2011
About 11 weeks

Today I had an appointment and it was with a new doctor. He rocked. I really liked him. He was so sweet and concerned and I think I actually like him more then my previous doctor. Anyway they did an ultrasound since I was in the ER and had a “threatened miscarriage” and everything looks amazing. It was the most incredible thing to see this baby. He was moving his legs and kicking like crazy and waving one hand while the other was behind his head. So cute! So far this has been the best experience during this pregnancy so far!
I also started classes today and so now I am exhausted. I go next week for the 12 week NT scan. I hope that goes well.

Feeling more normal!

By on January 9, 2011

So the weather has finally started to get warm again. Today it was about 75 degrees, which in my opinion, is perfect! I went to Target and got a strapless dress. I had bought one last year in November and hadn’t had a chance to wear it since it had been cold but I wore it today and it was the perfect thing to wear. Since my jeans are getting tight it is nice to wear a dress. I went ahead and got another one in another color and I might buy one more but this one in black. The ones I have now are purple and turquoise. It will be nice to wear for spring.
We are going to the Keys on Friday for the night. I love going to our house there. It will be nice to get away but now that I am thinking about it traffic might suck since it is a long weekend and we won’t be leaving till after I get home from class. I guess we will see what time we actually leave. Either way spending Saturday there will be nice. My friend Lisa is also coming down with her dog so we will probably get together on Sunday and go to the dog park with all the dogs.
Tonight my family is going out to eat for my sister in law’s birthday. That should be nice. My sister is really sick so she isn’t going. Poor thing! We all got sick this week but she seems to have gotten the worst of it.
Not to much else has been going on. Tuesday morning in my doctor appointment! I am very excited about it. I am a little nervous too since it is a different doctor then I usually see. Hope he is nice!
