Vivid dream....

So I've been having what seem like very real dreams lately. I had one the other night that really confused me. We found out about a month ago that we were having a little girl, but ever since then, I've secretly wondered if it was a little boy. We have our 20 week anatomy scan tomorrow, so as long as baby cooperates, we'll find out for sure if she's a she and if everything is going good with her growth. I'm really nervous for it to be honest. But anyways, my dream was that I was in the hospital and delivery our baby and when I actually delivered our baby, it turned out that it wasn't a little girl, but instead, it was a little boy! I was so shocked and to be honest, I feel bad saying this....but I was a little bummed because I know Juan really wants a little girl. I told Juan about it when I woke up, and he laughed off my dream, but I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since then. I won't be disappointed either way if it's a boy or girl, as long as our baby is healthy and growing well. I know my husband will be shocked if it turns out to be a little boy, but I won't be surprised in the slightest, mostly because of the dreams that I've been having and the feeling that I can't shake that maybe it is a little boy after all....hopefully not, because that means we've been calling him little Hadlie for the last month! :-) He's going to be traumatized before he's even born! I will let you know next blog post for sure what happens at our ultrasound and how everything went! Can't believe I'm 20 weeks already and half way through my pregnancy! Crazy how fast time flies!

Another week come and gone....

Helllooooooo everyone! LOL...the funny thing about that is that no one is reading this blog yet, so I"m pretty much just writing and talking to myself! Good times! I wish I had something fun and exciting to report for this week, but alas, I do not. Work has been going okay, I've found myself a bit distracted at work lately, which can be a problem if I don't perform to my standards. So I definitely need to work on that. I'm still feeling pretty good with my pregnancy...all things considered. I'm so excited for the day when I don't have to pee 20 times a day though! We have our anatomy scan next week and of course I'm nervous for it....I'm praying everything is healthy and normal with her. I'm trying not to focus on it too much, or else I get anxiety about it, but I can't help but be nervous that something could be wrong. ANYWAYS....Jenny, Juan and I went and saw the new Star Trek movie this week and it was AWESOME! It was really good...I highly recommend it! There's a few movies coming out soon that look really good...we'll have to go see them all! Whelp...that's about all I got for you folks! I"ll write again next week! Until then....ta ta!

Maggie May!!!

Another week has come and gone! As much as they seem to be crawling by, they are actually going by pretty quick! The big event of this week is that Peta had her little baby girl on Saturday, May 11th! She became a mother the day before Mother's Day! I was so excited when I got the text from Jeff and he said that her water had broken and that they were in the hospital in labor! Ahhhhh!!!! Of course I"m stuck at work on one of the busiest selling days of the year, but they kept me updated via text on her progress! It worked out perfectly too because Peta's mom and twin sister Jennifer flew in the very same day that Peta had her little girl! I was able to go to the hospital that night and wait for her to have her baby with Jenny and her mom! It was so fun to see Peta as a mommy! She had her little girl, Maggie May Clark that night and she weighed 7 lbs 15 oz and was 19 inches long! It made me really excited and anxious for the time when my little girl makes her big debut! I'm so excited for Peta and know she'll make a wonderful mother!

Boy or Girl? Boy or Girl? Boy or Girl? The verdict is in!

         So I know you usually find out what you're having at your 20 week ultrasound, but I don't know how first time moms can wait that long! I was so incredibly anxious to find out that we decided to get an early ultrasound done at 16 weeks to find out what we're having. Man, oh man was it nerve wracking! I kept thinking, what if they can't tell, what if something is wrong, what if? what if? what if? So many what if's? Alas, it all turned out great in the end. The ultrasound technician took us into the back room and made us feel very comfortable. It was really neat because she had a big screen TV hooked up to the machine so that I just had to look directly in front of me and could see everything that she was seeing. I thought I was going to have to turn and strain my neck to get a glimpse, but thankfully the technology these days is top notch! Anyways, she started scanning and pointing out our babies arms, legs, spine and it was the coolest thing to see! Then she goes, "oh, there we go!" She asked if we could see what she was pointing at and we said that we couldn't see anything, and she said, "that's because there's nothing're having a little GIRL!!!!!!" AHHHHHHH!!!!!  I was seriously shocked....I just knew it was a little boy and to find out it was a girl was really thrilling! Juan was so made my heart melt to hear him call her his little princess and just be thrilled to be having a daughter.

     As soon as we left the appointment, we called my parents and told them our good news and then continued on calling and texting the rest of the was fun and exciting to hear everyone be excited and happy for us. Since my sister Sarah just entered the MTC a week ago, I went and ordered a half dozen cupcakes in girly colors and had them sent to her at the MTC so she would know that it was a little girl....she'll be thrilled....that's what she thought it was! Anyways, that's my good news for the week and I'm excited for the next milestones I"ll start having with my little daughter!

Well, this is my first official foray into the world of blogging! I'm actually pretty excited about it and I'm sure I"ll be learning as I go! My sister Liz has been begging me to start a blog for quite some time now, so I"m sure she's going to be thrilled about this! I know this is a bit cliche, but the reason I finally decided to start a blog and keep up with one is because.....WE'RE PREGNANT!!!
Here I am at 13 weeks!

We had been trying to get pregnant since we got married and I ended up having to take the medicine clomid to make this happen, but thankfully, on the first round....IT TOOK! We're thrilled to be expecting our first little one on October 13th! I am now 16 weeks along and have kept quiet for the most part, just out of nervousness for the situation and wanting to make sure that I was far enough along before I announced it to the world. We find out soon if we're going to be having a boy or a girl! I've felt from the beginning that it was a little boy, and my husband thinks it's a little girl, so it'll be fun to finally find out! I'm so grateful for the love and support I've received from my husband and's been wonderful. I look forward to keeping you all updated on what's going on with us and our progress towards parenthood! Love you all!
