Just doing some thinking and pondering

So today at work and recently i have been doing a lot of thinking about my life and where i am now. Here area some scatterings of my thoughts.

  • I would not change where i am now for anything
  • Kids are more important then money-
  • There is no point in waiting until you have enough money to have a family to start, you will never think you have enough
  • Kids really are one of the greatest joys
  • As long as you keep on the path, the Lord will make everything work out
  • I love being married and do not think 20 is too young to get married
  • No matter what situation you are in there is always good, you just might have to look a litter harder to find it. I promise you its there just keep looking!!
  • Work will always be there, so we have to make the best of it and have fun. No use hating it, it will only make your situation worse
  • Family is one of the most important things we have, hold close to them and stay by them
  • You really can never get enough kisses and hugs from kids!
Lol okay there is a random list of some of my thoughts today at work ;) just thought i would share

Can you find me?

So we really want to get Jackie this car for the upcoming warm weather! She love the one at her sitters house and we think it would be fun for her to have....ONLY problem is I cant find it any where it is sold out at Wal-Mart Target toys-r-us! Anyone got any ideas where we could get one that wont be a killer in shipping charges?

Baby doc!

So i got to have my first appointment today! I really hate going but I love my doctor he is really nice and helps me relax! The best part was i got to hear the heart beat! There is something about that sound that just brings so much relaxation to me and helps make it all seem a little more real! Plus it lets you know that the baby is kicking! Derek and Jackie both came so they got to hear it....i am sure Jackie had no clue what was going on she seemed jealous that i got to lay on the table and not her lol.

It was good though the doc told me i need to be careful and not lose any more weight lol not sure how i can really help that one.....I just need to tell the baby to let me EAT! haha oh well one day i am sure food will no longer make me gag until then i will continue to eat grapes chicken noddle soup and yogurt! mmmm good food!

He told me that i am welcome to chose a vbac or c section, he said that he is very pro vbac and that if i don't have one now it will be really hard to get a doc who will let me try one after 2 c sections because of higher rates of issues accuring. He said since it was more of a baby issue (her heart rate kept droping and finally got too low they had to get her out) However he did say if i do the c section he will take me a week or so early since i moved along so fast with jackie ;)! lol But who knows a c section is like 1k more! EEK! but i also know what to expect and the healing times and everything....and lets face it i hate the unkown it just freaking scares me! So that is my next quest alothough he did say i can decided that when ever i want and he will help i figure that i will just talk to him about it as i move along and see what i feel is best for me and baby! What do you moms out their think...anyone had a vbac?

So yes we are well baby is well and has a fast heart beat! 178 beats a minute! it always amazes me how fast those things are--they sound like a washing machine!!

Our Weekend and such

We had a great weekend! Derek's trip ended up getting canceled, so we got excited that he could come with me! Then we found out he had a meting with the team on Saturday. But my sweet husband decided to come with us and sent out a letter to the team letting them know he would not be there! I was so happy! Since me and Jackie were already flying we bought Derek a ticket to come with us! The flight was nice and Jackie was AMAZING on the plane! She did not even cry once! The plane was almost full there were two seats open, and yes one was next to us (no one wants to sit by a baby lol) So Jackie even had her own seat, but never used it on the way there!

We got to Vegas and Jackie was SO happy to see her Grandma!

The next day was Derek's birthday, we flew down his hockey gear so he could go play hockey on his birthday. So while he was playing hockey i went to my moms school to go see her. It was a lot of fun! That night my mom got him a red wings cake for his birthday (Derek never got a hockey cake growing up and every time around his birthday brings it up, so the past two years i have made sure he had one, and think for the next 22 years i will be getting him one to make up for his childhood ;))
Then my mom took us out to dinner we went to Carabas and it was really good!, After dinner My mom watched Jackie for us and we went out to see Taken! It has been so LONG since we had been to the movies and we had a lot of fun! And we loved the movie! I think i enjoyed being able to sit for 2 hours with out having to do much, it took away my morning sickness! lol now if only i can do that home lol

Since Derek was planing on being in Washington over V-day he mailed me my valentines! :) So i got a package on his birthday (and yes i opened it then!) Inside was a bear that he wrote on the tag was Derek bear to remind me of him, and the bear was holding a cloth rose and pillow heart and a box of Transformer Valentines. He wrote on each one one reason why we loved me it was really cute and made me cry! I love my husband he is so cute and always does his best to make sure i am happy!

On Saturday we just hung out with my family, and my friend Elsie came up to see us! It was a lot of fun! Me mom watched Jackie for us again and we all went out to see hes just not that into you--ya dont see it its DUMB and WAY too long! oh well!

Sunday we went to church and just hung out! it was a nice weekend and i ate out WAY too much, but i love being with my family and just hanging out with them!

The flight home Jackie was REALLY good again! Again the flight was almost full but Jackie got her own seat, so she just watched Tigger and Pooh the whole way and was really good! Then when we got off we were waiting for our bags and mine came through and so did Jackie's car seat and dereks hockey sticks, but his other two bags where not. Apparently a lot of the bags got lost from out flight, but they called us this morning to let us know they found them...which was nice, but still LAME i hate it when they loose bags grrr

As for an update with me....prego life is in full swing! I have been really sick this time, alot more then i was with Jackie. Which is hard with work but not much i can do about it so i am just trying to make it through and hoping that in a month or so it will go away. Since i have been so sick I really have not gained any weight, in fact i am still down EIGHT pound from where i started. (well with my weekend in Vegas that really could have changed lol we ate out ALOT;)) But my pants are still getting tighter! Its just not fair! With Jackie my pants did not get tight until like month 7! I heard it happens faster with the second I guess i just did not realize it! But oh well, guess its off the maternity store to buy some pants! I only have capries and shorts from my pregnancy with Jackie! Oh well we are excited for our new addition!!

coming in September to a hopspital near me....

Well for those of you who did not "get it" from my last post I am pregnant!! We are very excited to add to our little family! Its crazy to think that i will be having another child but I could not be happier! Thinking about it it sounds crazy! But we know its what the Lord wants, and that He will make it work for us. :)!! We have gotten really lucky with both kids and had no trouble getting pregnant which makes me happy and surprised me BOTH times! Lol i am not one of those people who can really keep things a secret, lol i was going to keep it a secret for a little longer but alas it got leaked it ;) I know some people thinks its wrong to say anything before 12 or 13 weeks, but I am an open person, and I am freaking excited!!! Now I just have to survive the morning sickness or "all day sickness" as i think it should be called! But i do not want to dwell on that, what matters is I am going to have a wonderful little gift from God in September and in the end that is really all that matters. (and that is what I am going to keep telling my self)
