Thanksgiving 2008

Wow, Thanksgiving was awesome. I woke up at 5 cuz I was hungry, I tried to go back to sleep after I ate but I couldn't. So I finally got out of bed at 7:30ish, I finished up some cleaning and started making cinnamon rolls (a tradition that we always do). My sis got there at about 9 so we started on the stuffing, and than we had to make a quick grocery run. I was surprised to see as many people as I did at the grocery store on T-day. When we got back we were able to start on the turkey. We didn't get the turkey in though until almost 11, yikes! My MIL showed up around 12 and that was nice to have some extra help. The turkey we knew wasn't going to be done till around 2:30ish, so we ended up having to cook the ham in the toaster oven LOL. It actually worked we didn't think it was going to but it sure did! Dinner was served around 4 just an hour later than we had originally planned for. Everyone had only started showing up around two. It was really nice to host Thanksgiving, 90% of the people there had never seen our house before so that was a lot of fun. DH and I had planned on telling the rest of the family on Thanksgiving that we were pregnant. So once everyone had gotten their food and was eating, DH stood up and told everyone I have an announce to make. Of course some people in the room already knew, and their faces were funny cuz they were trying not to smile and give it away. But he told everyone "I just wanted you all to know that I am going to be a daddy" and everyone in the room starting cheering. It was the best reaction we have gotten so far! DH's Grandma was so happy she even started to cry! It was so cute, and sweet! We passed around the pick of our first ultrasound, of course it was a just little blob people were looking at but still we wanted to show them. After we told everyone, some people started saying stuff like I thought you looked a little sick when we first showed up, LOL. I was sick, but man I tried my hardest to hide it. After we told everyone though I just let it all go, and I did not feel good at all. I had to go lay down, for a little bit. But overall, yesterday was an amazing day and even though I am exhausted, I can't wait to host another holiday!

On a baby note, I am 7 weeks today!! YAY baby, mommy and daddy are so proud of you, you really have made it a long way! Daddy is so excited to see on Monday for the first time! I hope that we see everything is ok and that you are still growing strong! You have so many people in the world who can't wait to meet you! We love you so much baby! Hang in there!

God is AMAZING!!!

So I got the results of my blood work back today!! My beta's at 17DPO were at 946! I am still in shock! Now that the blood results have confirmed it It is starting to sink in! I am going to be a mommy! I am going to be responsible for someone else's life! I just can't believe it! I am just in awe of God's amazing love and power. To have surgery at 7DPO and still end up pregnant is amazing to me! Am I worried about the surgery and the affects that it may have on the baby? Yes, but I have decided that I am going to have complete faith in God that everything will turn out OK! My first appointment is December 1st! I am so excited, and so incredibly thankful for this wonderful gift that God has given us! I CAN NOT wait to be a parent and share something so wonderful with my DH!!!

Just one more test pic I promise!!!

Here is some pics of how I told DH he was going to be a daddy!!!

99 Balloons

So this evening when I logged into my Myspace account. [(Yes I am a myspacer.. ; )] I had been notified that I have been given a new sticker my cousin in law. This video right here that I have linked for you, is the most touching, and heart breaking video i have ever seen. God really does work in mysterious ways, and is ALWAYS above doctors and statistics... As long as you have faith God can do anything.. I will warn you... you need tissues!!


Here are some pics of my new scars... I am feeling a little bit better. I am still very sore and my belly button is still very bruised. But I am getting better though that is the good thing. = )

Halloween 2008

Well this Halloween will definitely be a memorable one. I woke up on Friday morning and was not feeling well. The pain in my stomach had gotten worse from the night before. I decided not to go into work and that I would call my doctors office. When I told them my symptoms they wanted me to come in right away. After waiting for what felt like forever in the waiting room, they finally called me back. The doc listened to my symptoms, then he decided to poke and prod me. After ten minutes of this he decides that it is time for me to go to the ER. So I call my husband and told him that the doc wanted me to go to the ER. I get in my truck and start driving to the hospital, on the way there the only thing that kept going through my mind was what if there wrong and it will be nothing again. The reason why I kept thinking this is because most of the time that I got the ER they usually send me home with no explanation of what was the causing the pain. So I get myself checked in to the ER, and call my DH again to update him. There was no reason for him to come to the ER if they were just going to send me home. Well I sat in the waiting of over an hour, they finally called me back. They get an IV started and than the ER doc comes in and asks me about a million questions. He calls the nurse in to draw some blood and send me for a CAT scan. The CAT scan revealed that my appendix was enlarged and that I had a hemorrhagic cyst on my right ovary. Well that's just great. The ER doc tells me that he is sending the surgeon in to come talk to me. So I get on the phone and call DH, my sis, my mom, my friend Brittany, and raskind17 to let them know what is going on. DH drops everything and says he is on his way, my mom says she is leaving work and that she will be there soon; and my friend Brittany says she will be there soon too. The surgeon comes in and talks to me, and for the third time that day I was asked a million questions, and poked and prodded. Ugh it really hurt when they were poking me! Anyways he says that he needs to go talk to surgery and he will be back. He came back in five minutes and told me that they would be operating on me in about 3 hours. My DH finally gets there, he does not show up to pretty sight, I had gotten significantly worse. I was breathing rapidly, I was dry heaving, and my heart rate had shot up to about 140 bpm. That is not good! They got some meds in me to calm me down, it worked for about ten minutes, than the rapid breathing and high heart rate came back. So they moved the surgery up to right then. So I of course am freaking out, my DH is trying to sign all of these forms so he's freaking out, lets just say all around it was a pretty hectic event. When they rolled me back to the OR I remember almost rolling off of the table cuz I was trying to throw up, the anesthesiologist had just given me some medicine so the last thing, I remember hearing was a nurse yelling to get me to lay down cuz this was gonna hit me like a ton of brick. The next thing I remember is waking up in recovery, but I remember looking at the clock, and it was almost three hours later. I asked the nurse how the surgery had taken was anything wrong, she said the surgery only took about an hour and a half, but that they had been trying to wake me up for almost two hours. WOW, that's not scary or anything. Later I would find out that my DH and mom were freaking out in the waiting room, and calling every fifteen minutes to see if I was awake yet. I feel bad, I dunno why it was so hard for me to wake up at least I DID wake up! When I got the room, I was in so much pain I thought I was going to die. The rest of my stay was pretty normal, my DH didn't get any sleep cuz I was waking up every hour to pee. But other than that it was normal. I am home now, I am still in a great deal of pain. Thankfully DH is on Vacation this week so I will always have someone here to help me. I think I will go back to work on either Tuesday or Wednesday depending on how hard it is to walk. That was a horrible experience, and I am so glad that we only have one appendix! I guess the only good thing that came out of this is that they didn't see any endometriosis! So that is a blessing! I am so thankful for all of my friends and my family; and for all of the prayers and well wishes that were sent my way. Lets just say this was a very interesting Halloween.
