Week 10 Prenatal Care

7 week ultrasound- tiny, perfect heartbeat!
Week 10 Prenatal Care
Starting weight: 274
Morning Sickness: Morning sickness hit around week 7 and became overwhelming in week 8 and 9 to the point the motion, light, smells, etc.. made me feel incapacitated, but by this week (week 10) it let up some and I feel like I can function better. I'm still puking every morning, but am able to eat and function afterwards.  I am usually starving at 2-3 am and find myself waking multiple times a night to pee. Oh the joys of pregnancy! 
Cravings: soda water, anything vinegar- especially Scalini's salad YUM!  
Exercise: hoping to walk/run again when morning sickness calms down.
Gender guess: I really have no idea. I think we are going to wait to find out the gender, but then again we always say that and then end up caving. lol. 
Names: I love the name Penelope for a girl and Judah for a boy, but no middle names decided yet.

Another Beautiful Life

The Lord has blessed us again with another baby! 
Estimated due date June 8th, 2015.

On  Sunday, September 28th we stopped off after church to pick up some crazy hair dye for Awanas later that night. I went in CVS and decided on a whim to get a pregnancy test. No idea why, but I didn't tell hubs or anyone. I really didn't expect it to be positive. Then again, I had lost almost 40 pounds from running = getting pregnant. :)
So, right before we left for church I decided to go POAS while hubs was getting the kiddos in the car. It came up immediately a blaring positive!
I came out to the car grinning from ear to ear and hubs noticing asked why I was so happy? I waited til we dropped off the kids at Awanas and we went to get a frappe at Starbucks before church began. I told him I would pass on the frappe because of this and held up my the pic of the positive test on my phone. He instantly smiled from ear to ear and couldn't believe I had kept it from him for all of an hour. We were so happy to know we created life once again!  God is good.
