eight weeks

that's how far along i am.
it is totally crazy.
-
right before thanksgiving i found out sus and chris
were coming home.
and with grandpa dying in july...
i just felt like we needed to procreate.
-
it took a lot of praying and convincing cameron.
but around christmas we decided to start trying.
-
christmas day was the 'official' day cameron said we could.
i say it was my christmas present.
-
that month we didn't reaaaaalllllly try
so we didn't get pregnant.
-
but in january we tried...
and what do you know....
Feb 1 i found out!
-
i ran into the bedroom (it was 6:00am)
and asked cameron what he wanted to name our baby.
of course he was still sleeping... and he didn't know what was going on.
and i had to ask him a couple times.
then he realized what I was saying, and
we both just kinda freaked out!
-
i was hesitant to put it on the blog this early,
but i waited a long time for me...
and decided either way i was just going to do it.
-
i knew you would all be so happy!
my little blog friends.
-
you people without kids wouldn't think,
but i have already gotten MUCH unsolicited advice
and MANY rude rude comments.
-
Like Katie said during her pregnancy.
I will ask for advice when I am ready,
and then I will take it to heart.
But seriously people don't be rude.
that's just, well, rude.
-
here are the things people have said:
person-are you finding out the sex?
me-yes we are b/c i am tye A and have to or i'll die
person-wow that's really disappointing
me-well, you have had 2 kids, and you got your chance, this is mine.
-
person- wow, this is going to be a longgggg pregnancy
me- no, it's going to be 40 weeks, just like everyone else, why?
person- b/c you told everyone so early, and it's you
me- (bahhhhh annoyed... stalking away)
-
person- where are you going to deliver
me- mountain midwifery down the street
person- ohhhh, do you want me to tell you some horror stories
me- nope, heard them all, thanks
person- really? i could tell you a lot to change your mind
me- no thanks, i've made an informed decision
person- but you work at a hospital
me- yup.
-
-
-
really people?
wow.
-
the things we know are?
-i go see the midwife when i am 10 weeks on march 15
-
-at 6 weeks i was getting nauseated mainly in the morning but then
it started going alllllll day, and yesterday i puked for the first time.
boo. so far, today i'm good.
-crackers, gingerale, smoothies, toast, tea, none of it helps.
-
-i crave different things, last week it was baked potatoes
and the funny thing is that sometimes i crave it,
get it, then can't eat it, b/c it makes me wanna barf.
-
-i'm not showing yet, i just have a really really
bad muffin top, which makes my pants not fit.
which sucks. BUT seriously, why doesn't
everyone wear maternity pants?!?!? they're awesome.
-
-we want to find the sex out, and we can at the MMC
-
-the MMC is 2 blocks from my hospital Swedish,
so IF a promlem arrises, the have made the national standard
of "decision to incision" of 30 minutes, in 7 minutes.
They have a great relationship with the Docs there
and have several accepting physicians.
My insurance covers both places.
-
i have read a million books
but that was all before I was even pregnant.
now i havent picked up one.
-
we have a long list of names picked out.
i don't mind telling people at all.
but i think it's annoying when they wrinkle their nose at
certain names.
hello... you got to name your own kids
so shut it.
-
what will hans and schnooze do?
who knows.
i think hans just wants it to get big enough to play ball with him.
and i think schnooze will protect it.
-
have you seen all there is baby.
i mean just walking into target it scary.
let alone looking on amazon.
ahhhhhhh.
-
what are essentials, good to have's, and didn't use once items.
-
what books did you read and recc?
-
names you like folks?
-
it's the size of a grape!
ahhh!!!!!

Yeah! Super excited! I've been telling everyone at work...they are super excited too!

Essentials: bouncy seat; cloth diapers as burp cloths (make sure they are the thick kind...soaks up spit-up much better); bath sling/cushion;

Non-essentials: wipes warmer; diaper genie; sterilizer (just boil water if you need to sterilize something);

Favorite names: Judah (boy), Acacia (girl), Sage (girl), Jillian

Gotta go get the kids ready to take to church, so if I think of more of these and send them to you later. Love you! Glad you've made it official, and hope you stop barfing soon!
