Not good at blogging...

I am not good at blogging at all. I just feel like there is never enough to blog about or i just don't know what to say. I will really try and do better. A lot has gone on lately. Since my last post we found out we are having a baby boy!!! We are so excited, but just can't come up with any names we LOVE. Its hard to come up with a name for your child. That is something they live with forever. I want it to mean something and be special to us and to him.
We had our ultrasound last week and found out he was a boy and he was just moving like crazy. She had a hard time seeing everything she needed to, so we get to back in a few weeks and see him again. We are so excited because they say he will double in size this month......which means i double? Eesh! Thats another thing. I'm having a really hard time with this whole weight gain thing. I know it will be totally worth it and i will probably loss most of it, but its so hard. I'm always so sad about the weight i've gained. It just seems like so much. When you read all the book, websites, etc. that say you should only gain this much and you shouldn't gain much in your 1st trimester and if your gaining too much you should slow down and if you gain too much you will be obese in 10 years. Ugh and seeing other women and comparing myself to them. Its just so depressing. I love being pregnant and i'm so excited to have this little guy and be a mom, don't get me wrong!! I'm trying not to let it get to me too much. Just eating as good as i can.
Anyway..sorry about my vent session....back to our lives.
Sam got hired on and put on day shift!!! YAY!!! So we get to spend our nights together :), but now i have to cook dinner. Haha I wanna cook and find good healthy recipies, but its just so much easier to eat out. I'm sure that isn't good for my eating better.
Sam loves his job and is such a hard worker. I don't know how he does it. He works so much overtime. He is so amazing and i'm SO lucky to have him in my life!
It was Sam's birthday on April 20. I spoiled him and i loved it!! Woke up made him breakfast!! Cinnamon french toast, muffins, and bacon. It was delicious! He had to work that night so i got him ribs from Goodwood bbq and took them to his work for dinner. Then that weekend we went to SL and spent the night there. Went to Ruth's Chris, which if you haven't been there save your money (cause it is NOT cheap) and go! It was amazing and worth it! It was so fun for me to spoil him and plan everything!! He deserved all of it. I love him so much!!!
I'm almost 22 weeks now and can feel him kick every once in a while. Nothing huge, but last night i could feel it more. So i told Sam and he put his ear on my stomach and he kicked so hard!! Sam looked up at me with a huge smile on his face. I loved seeing him feel it! It was such a good moment. I have a human inside of me. Its so crazy to me. Its really starting to hit me as i get a belly and feel him. We are soooo excited!!!
Well that was a very random post, but that just kinda catches you up on things. I'll try and post soon or maybe it will be a few months. Ha ha i'll do my best!!

Finding out

Well as many of you may know Sam and I are going to be having a baby on September 20!! We could not be more excited about this! We found out on Jan 12. I will tell you a little of the story.
We were starting "Insanity" the crazy high intensity workout that week and I thought it would probably be a good thing to test and see if I was because if I was I didn't wanna be doing that workout. Anyway so that morning we woke up and I told Sam I was going to go test. You all know how it works, well it was proccessing the test and the line was there and DARK! I couldn't believe. I gasped and covered my mouth and then ran into our room flipped on the light and held it so Sam could see it. He then said "Are you serious?!" We were so excited!! It seemed so unreal. I was shaking. I just couldn't believe it was positive. Ahhh it was such a good morning! That day Sam's brother Jake was leaving on his mission so we wanted to tell him before he left. We went over to his parents for breakfast and I was just waiting for Sam to tell them. Sam asked if anyone has any last words for Jake and I looked at him and said "do YOU have any last words?" He told Jake that when he got back he would have 3 nieces or nephews (his other sis in law is also pregnant). Everyone was very excited for us! I had to go to work that day and Sam did as well. He works until 11:30 pm so I hung out with my parents that night and was not able to tell them until he got off. It was so hard. I work with my mom and was with both mom and dad all night. It was a long night. Haha Sam got off work and came over and I asked them if they wanted another grand baby and my mom said "REALLY?" and she started crying so I started crying! It was such a fun day!! Then we told everyone else. Everyone was so excited for us! As are we! :)
I have been feeling the stress and worry that comes with being pregnant. Some cramping which causes me to stress like crazy which causes me to make myself sick over it. I called the nurse 3 or 4 times they said the same thing "its normal" Well i was still freaking out so they got us an appt for an ultrasound. This was last week. They call and say drink 32oz of water an hour before and hold it so we can see your little baby. So that morning comes and of course i didn't measure the water i just drank what i felt like. Bad idea. They double booked the appt and the other lady got there first. I had to wait 45 min with a very very full bladder. I was in lots of pain. I couldn't sit down and i couldn't stand up straight. I was hunched over in the waiting room almost in tears. Sam says to me "Punch me in the face" I said "No punch ME in the face" ha ha he kept making me laugh which didn't help the situation, but i was SO glad he was there with me!!! They finally took us back and it took a lot for me to just climb up on the table and lay down and of course after i laid down she said "oh can you sit up for a min?" I tried, but couldn't go anywhere. My bladder was FULL! Then she starts the ultrasound and starts pushing on my belly. I wanted to cry it hurt so bad, but then i saw that little bean inside my belly. It was amazing. We got to hear the heartbeat, it has a heartbeat at 6 weeks. It so crazy to us. I looked at Sam. He was smiling so big! Its that little and has a tiny little heart. Wow. So cool!! Well I finally got to go to the bathroom. Felt much better. It was such a fun, painful, amazing experience. I felt much better after getting to see it and hear it. I've been able to chill out a lot more now. Moral of the story only drink what your are supposed to drink not for a whole hour. Sheesh. I have been started to feel kind of sick, but as long as i am eating or have something in my stomach i'm ok. I just feel like i'm always eating and already getting some fat on me. Ha ha oh well.
That is a couple of stories for you. Whoever reads this. ha i will be updating this as we go for the next 7 1/2 months! Wish us luck!
