Merry Christmas

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring!

23 Dec

*Sigh* It rained last night through this morning and uhm, it’s still raining, hard. It’s almost 4:25pm, my poor dog hasn’t gone poop since last night… That’s a long time! Lucky for me, he’s not the type to explode in the house. We had a break from the rain for a few minutes so at least he went pee. I just feel bad for him, he absolutely hates the rain, and with good reason.


Normally, I love the storm but my cuddle buddy/fiance is at work. He didn’t come home last night, he was so busy with work sooo I’ve been “solo.” And then I got to thinking, I’m never actually alone. My little bear cub is with me every where I go. It’s weird in a way, I have this little human life inside of me preparing himself to make an appearance in about 4.5 months. We are sharing a bond that no one else will experience except other mothers, obviously. Typically, I would feel lonely but knowing he’s in my tummy just hanging out is comforting.

I also have Homer, my parents, my 2 brothers, and the internet to keep me entertained but it would be so nice to just feel the warmth of my fiance. Just isn’t the same without him. I’m so looking forward to later tonight when he comes home.


Tis The Season

22 Dec

Tis the season to be jolly! The holidays are pretty happy around this household and I’m very thankful for that. Having a little bear cub in the oven makes everything even more joyful! So everyone is working hard and smiling all the while. It’s really really nice. 🙂

The Pregnant Life: The Beginning

1 Dec

August 2012

The two week wait, also known as the 2WW was insane. I was extremely anxious looking for signs from my body to produce pregnancy symptoms. I definitely got some but then was in denial because I wanted it to work out so bad I didn’t want to get my hopes up. I wanted implantation to happen so bad… And it did! I planned out a pregnancy, ha ha. I tracked my ovulation days perfectly. First time and it was a success. Hubby has excellent swimmers 🙂

Preggo Sticks

I bought three preggo sticks from the Dollar Store. I don’t care what anyone says, they work just as good as the $15+ ones. When I was taking medical assisting classes, we used Dollar Store pregnancy tests to practice urinalysis. All three came back positive. I used the EPT when I was 4-5 days past ovulation. The first Dollar Store stick test result came back faded, 1dpo. Of course I Googled that and read every search result I could. When I read it could be a false positive I was bummed out, I didn’t have hope I guess, but more was expecting “whatever happens will happen.” Next 2 sticks came back dark. And then EPT gave me the +.

When Hubby came home I told him the results were negative, then only to say “surprise, you’re going to be a father!!!” like a jerk. On TV, it’s funny to let someone down only to bring them back way up. Okay, I’m a jerk who thinks she’s funny. 🙂

And so the nine/ten month journey begins. We are so thrilled to be blessed by this little Bear Cub inside of me!
