Woah Woah Calm Down

So... Here's some TMI for ya. It's necessary for you to know so I can tell my story. Brushing my teeth is my enemy. It's the worst part of my day. Wanna know why? My toothbrush and I do not get along. Brushing my teeth makes me throw up. There. I said it. Now you know and we can get on with my story.

So I work at this paper stationary place. I'm a data entry person. I take the mail that we receive in the morning and enter the orders in on the computer. That's it. That's what I went through 15 years of school to do. Nah, I'm kidding. It's a temporary position and perfect for a lazy pregnant lady. So I come home in the afternoons with nothing to do. I don't have homework or projects to complete. It's just plain weird. So I get bored. Some people might take up hobbies like learning to sew, play a musical instrument, or anything that might make them a better wife or future mother. But not me. I should do something productive, but I don't. I choose to watch Grey's Anatomy. Yep. That's my hobby.

Well tonight I realized I need a new hobby. I realized I've watched too much Grey's Anatomy. See, I drank some grape juice about an hour ago. So when I went to brush my teeth a few minutes ago, that's what came up. I know, I know, super gross.... I'm sorry. I just want you to know that I thought I was dying. On Grey's Anatomy, the person in my situation-whose puking up nasty red colored gunk- dies. My heart skipped a beat and I almost yelled to Travis, "call 9-1-1!". Yeah... I need a new hobby. Plus, I'm going to be a mother. I need to learn some important skills, like quilting or something. So yeah. I hope you weren't too grossed out by my story. I don't really know why I wanted to share it so badly. Oh well.

Oh Baby Baby

Well, the news is out. We're expecting a little one in March. We're beyond excited to extend our family. A lot of people were surprised when we announced we were pregnant. I've wanted a baby for about a bijillion years. And this summer, after much prayer, Travis and I agreed that the time was right.

So far, the pregnancy has been pretty unreal. It doesn't seem like it's really happening. My stomach is growing, but very slowly. Pretty much only I can see the difference. I've been nauseous in the mornings and when I brush my teeth. Travis has been so good to me! He's always doing things to ease my troubles or let me rest when I'm tired. He's going to be such a great dad.

Our wee little babe is due March 14th. We saw him/her at the 10 week ultrasound and heard his/her heartbeat a few days ago. Those are the moments when it seems so amazing and real. I wish we could see and hear that everyday. We find out the gender on my birthday, October 9th! I'll be 17 and a half weeks along. So close! But for now, enjoy the pictures we have of our wee little babe. :)
