A pick me up

Elder Holland is one of my most favorite speakers! This video has always touched my heart.  Especially now with the baby on the way.  He gives such words of encouragement when the world seems to have such daunting pressure on women and our worldly roles.  We are special.  Our Heavenly Father created women to nurture and care for our children.  I know that this is what I am supposed to be doing.  Motherhood will bring me the greatest joy and happiness.  I know that my Savior died for me and that the atonement is real.  I am so blessed to be a member of this extraordinary church.

Crazy dreams!!

The past few times I have slept I have had the most crazy and random pregnancy dreams!! One of them we had twins a boy and a girl! Pretty random.  Then other sad ones that just stress me out! I won't share them.

Today we have told lots of people about our good news. :) It is fun to tell the people that we know in town who have watched Matt and I from the very beginning.  It makes us happy.  Our singles ward bishop's wife (talk about a mouth full) was one of the people who we got to tell today! So that was fun!

All is well, just hungry waiting for dinner to be done cooking! Wahoo!

First baby bump picture

The start of the bump 
Here is the start of the bump! 
In the back ground of the picture you can see Dr. Derek Shepard 
from Grey's Anatomy! Just something I do to pass the time on the couch.

A special thanks!!

The Man
I have the BEST HUSBAND IN THE WORLD! Today I have wanted to scream from the roof tops about how much I appreciate my man.  He does so much for me each and everyday.
Everyday he does everything for me!
cleans all the rooms of the house
feeds me
cuddles me
deals with me 
helps me 
comforts me
fixes the washer and dryer
holds me 
says sweet things to me 
and hundreds of other great things!

I am so glad he is going to be the baby daddy! He is going to do such a fantastic job as a dad.  I can't wait to see him and our wee one together for the first time.  I look forward to it every single day as a sit and think about the future of our tiny family! 

Life is good!!! I am SOOO blessed! 
Thank you honey for being mine, and for taking care of me at my every beck and many calls.

Today I made a huge decision which has already lightened my stress!  This morning after waking up from 3.5 hours of sleep it hit me for the hundredth time that maybe I needed to drop my current courses.  I thought about it for hours and when Matt woke up I felt totally okay with the idea!  After speaking to different individuals about it on campus I knew this was the right choice to make.  I know that some people are very sad with my decision and feels as though I have given up. BUT I have not!  I know that by dropping my courses  I am coming to the realization that I can't do everything.  And I am okay with that!  I'm growing a human and that's kinda a big deal!

Today's hardships...fever, stomach flu, and fatigue.
Highlights...Reese's Pieces

Cravings....Grandpa Cookies, cake, anything with chocolate!

Shocked with myself

I am totally shocked that I have been blogging consistently with in the last few days.  I am currently sitting at my broadcasted Business Statistics class.  This is too long of a class Monday and Wednesday nights for this ADD child.  It hits an hour and a half into it and my brain is turned off! I'll have to work on this! haha good luck to me.

Today has been a pretty sickly feeling day.  Nothing weird that I have craved other than Reese's cups.  But that is pretty normal for me.  Tomorrow I'm going to try to go on a walk or something to see if that helps with the morning sickness that has lasted all day.  We shall see!

On Feb 4th we will be having our first doctors appointment.  Super excited to be able to possibly see my baby the size of a blueberry, or even just hearing the heartbeat.  Maybe that will help it all sink in that we are actually having a baby!

Any way my thoughts are scattered because of math! So its time for me to stop and take a break and get my munch on! This girl is starving!

Today I contacted an organization near by that will completely cover the financial needs of this pregnancy!!! The program is called Baby Your Baby! And then I will have Medicaid after that! It is such a blessing that our state provides these things for poor people like Matt and I! I met with a RN today and had the official test and everything is good to go!

Today I woke up feeling pretty good.  Which is unusual for me in the mornings.  I immediately went into freak out mode.  "what if I'm loosing the baby, what if something is wrong??" You know the typical emotional feelings! But I so comforted by my dad and sister.  All is well I just was informed that eating protein helps with morning sickness! So yes all is well especially because I got sickly around 12:30!

Another great thing of the day was a new book that I bought on amazon.com, "The Pregnancy Journal"  "A Day-to-Day Guide to a Healthy and Happy Pregnancy."  Written by "A Christine Harris. Ph.D.  This is a day to day guide of new changes about the baby and me.  Super great! Matt likes it too... Just don't tell him I said that! :) Any way all is well here

Life is good!! And we are blessed!

To eat or not to eat...

Over the last week I have asked myself one question multiple times..." why don't I eat this good when I'm not prego??"  It is so strange that a baby smaller than a grape can completely change how my body reacts to food...wait the thought of food.  The following food items are foods that I can't even think about eating with out having the urge to puke.
-melted cheese
-processed food of any kind
-lunch meat
-cracked wheat
- soda
-FRIED FOOD! not a good friend! 
-anything that is creamy
and a plethora of other things--I love the word "plethora"  thank you Three Amigos.

While I have no desire to eat those foods these are the ones I love...at the moment.
-veggie burritos 
-plain chips
-peppermint tea

While I may absolutely hate having morning sickness...I do find comfort in the nausea.  A wise woman, Susan Lazenby--my marvelous mother-- has always said, "It is a good sign that you feel sick, it means your baby is healthy."  So each morning after making my trip to the bathroom, I find myself saying a prayer of thanks to Heavenly Father for giving me a healthy pregnancy. And with in the same breath I ask for strength to get though the day with out too much suffering.  And oh boy was he was sure merciful today! 

I know that our bodies were created after HIS image.  He created us perfectly so that we can have the ability to grow babies.  It blows my mind that as I sit here typing with horrid grammar and run on sentences, I am growing my child.  The plan of salvation is real, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true.  I am grateful for my Savior who guides me and gives me strength daily.  He will become an even bigger help once this baby is here.  :) I am so excited I can't even focus on school work.  I'll have to pray a little harder for that. 
Life is good. We are blessed!

BIG changes

Upon request of the husband, over the next 9 months I hope to spend a lot more time on this blog sharing my changes and the changes with in me.  Soon we'll be going to the docs to make everything official.  Once we make the visit to the doctor we will be able to share the news officially to everybody.  Until then, I will be starving and sick as a dog.
