First Ultrasound

29 Apr

Today I had my first ultrasound! My HUSBO went with me and it was just an awesome experience.

Today I am 8 weeks and 3 days pregnant.


We were surprised how loud and strong the heartbeat was, it was shocking! The heartbeat was 167 bpm and baby is almost an inch,  so exciting! Baby (baby George as I like to call it, until we find out the sex, hehe) is doing well! My next appointment is next month, not sure what that visit will bring but I cannot wait! It’s super awesome to finally see that there is an actual baby growing  in my belly, haha. It’s just extra real feeling… 😉 We got six pictures and I placed them on our fridge until I can find a suitable frame or baby book to start out with.

I am currently trying to get on track with some early research about… well, anything! I want to start getting info now and decide what I will or will not be doing when baby George does arrive! There is a lot to think about, all very interesting and again, exciting. I have a while to do this research but it doesn’t hurt getting it done now! Also I’m gonna take this opportunity to complain about my boobs… TMI, sorry. Friday I asked HUSBO, “Do my boobs look bigger?” he says no. Saturday (his birthday) I asked again and he says “HELL YEAH!” and they were noticeably bigger… like HUGE. Pain in the ass, haha. Uncomfortableness is just apart of the territory. I haven’t been bad off though. Just bloating, a little nausea, sore breasts, back ache, head ache, cramps, leg cramps, and just kind of all around uncomfortableness.  Oh and cravings, I am constantly hungry! Whew… I know it will get worse, so I’m trying to keep the complaining to a minimum haha.

Last week, April 22nd, was my very first prenatal visit, got checked out, got to meet my doctor, nothing exciting. We celebrated my HUSBO’s birthday this weekend, his golden birthday. We went out and he invited some friends, I was the designated driver, obviously. Nothing else really exciting as of now… boo! Maybe next time!


I’m Pregnant!

10 Apr



I am pregnant! We are so very excited, happy, and of course nervous as this is our first child. We’ve only been trying since January and conceived in March, after our Moms told us it would probably take up to a year to conceive. Crazy! We were surprised! I haven’t exactly been feeling myself or well the last week and decided to take a test after it was over a week since and my period hadn’t come. I had a few symptoms and I kind of suspected I might be, but didn’t want to get my hopes up of course. Took 4 tests, the first was hard to read, partially faded/barely shown up for sure positive. So we bought more and the other 3 were positive and quickly showed it! So I went into the doctor yesterday and they confirmed it! I walked back into the waiting room to my HUSBO, handed him a pregnancy fact pamphlet and he yells in front of everyone “GOOD JOB!” and gives me a high five… LOL weirdo, God love him!

Our families are so excited, very happy! Our friends have sent us countless amounts of congratulations, so very nice! It is very early and we probably shouldn’t have shared yet, as I am only 5 weeks and a few days but we couldn’t contain ourselves. SO far everything is good and I want to keep it that way. RANDOM, but prenatal vitamins STINK! Literally… they smell bad haha. Did not expect that for some reason but oh well! Just wanted to share. Anyways, I AM SO EXCITED! Let’s see how much that “feeling changes” as I get farther along and I get more symptoms haha. This will be fun!

Hair ♥ Lurv

I don’t mean to be a Miley Cyrus posting freak, but I had to share this!

”Never felt more me in my whole life. If you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. My hair is attached to my head no one else’s.” – Miley Cyrus.

I love this quote! And I feel exactly the same. Obviously I get talked about or looks a lot when it comes to my hair. I always have and I expect I always will, which I am fine with. I even told my HUSBO after I got this haircut that I never felt more me! I feel so great with this style, as I did with my array of funk hair colors. This is one hairstyle I will be keeping for a long time. Also, before one million other people asks if I know who Skrillex is, I didn’t until I got this cut. I saw it on a model in a magazine and then Miley Cyrus started wearing this beautiful side swept look that (for once) I couldn’t recreate.



I thought this was fabulous and decided sometime this year (2012) I am getting my head shaved, after my HUSBO comes home. I didn’t want to get it done and freak him out when he first saw me after 10 months! Of course, he is the only one who doesn’t like it. But like he says, “it’s your hair, so what you want.” BUT mainly it is because I wanted it done, not because of a celebrity, although it seems that way… To be truthful, I don’t know who the model I saw the look on or the magazine I saw it in. I have always wanted to shave my head somehow, in seriousness and in hatred for my bad hair day.

Currently my hair is short… ick. It needs to grow faster! But since a dye screw up at the salon my hair needed a cut! It is bob-length right now… Haven’t had it this short in 9/10 years! YIKES! Hurry up and grow….
