Happy Halloween...

Took the kids out. Here's a few photos. Top one has my two kiddos and my sisters two daughters. the second on is my Dog Sadie. She had to trick or treat with us, which she loves :) She get's lots of attention. Yes she is spoiled.

Now the baby update:
She moves around so much I wonder what in Gods green earth can this kid be doing in there? Wow!. She is truly a gift from God because she is very strong and Wow I never thought I would feel this way...The movements just re-affirm that my wish is truly coming true.

How is it?

I am only 22 weeks pregnant and I am exhausted. I went to bed at 11pm last night and did not get up until 8:15am. Over nine hours of sleep and i'm still exhausted What is going on here. I get half way thru my day and start thinking..Is it nap time yet?

I go on Monday for an "anatomy" scan of the baby to verify for sure that its' a girl.

Luckily work has not been too horrible. It's actually slowed down to a steady pace. This weekend we are going to go hunting as a family. Ashley and I got Deer tags however since I am pregnant and cannot shoot,nor am I up for getting up at four am... I am signing my tag over to my "dependant child" ie: my son Jeffery.
Now let's see if I get any deer jerkey..yumm...
Although..I will eat the Jerkey, I will NOT eat the meat otherwise. Dennis and Brian are getting steaks out for dinner tomorrow...I will be eating Mac and Cheese.
The kids will eat Antelope steaks with the guys... I just cannot Stomach that!! :)

Time to really start praying

I am officially 20 weeks along already. And i'm starting to have immense fears.
I had to go to the doctor last friday. And found both good and bad news. The baby is doing fine. I on the other hand..not so good. Right now my cervex is extemly short and this can be a huge precursor to premature labor. So I am on strict "pelvic" rest. Not a huge deal honestly but it's scary when it comes to thinking that this can lead to this baby coming way too soon. I do not want to lose this child that I prayed for, for so long. Now I have to be so careful. And then add to the fact that I will have also having a problem with my blood pressure. I cannot continue to stress. but how do you just "don't stress" like everyone tells me! Argh.. I definately need to figure out something. I cannot do the whole bed rest thing. I have a husband and kids to provide for. It's not like their biological mother is going to be putting forth a darn penny for their care.

I need a vacation....

it's funny how I always said that if I ever got pregnant I would not be an emotional wreck nor would I cry or complain. (granted I was in like year five of six years of fertility treatments back then)'s free regin. I was dumb back then. I didn't understand what happens to your body when you are pregnant. I am always tired....emotional....and have heartburn darn it!!!!
but i'm ok with it
