I'm Pregnant!

I am pregnant! And I am so so so HAPPY! It is a pretty incredible experience, even with how early into the pregnancy I am. I could feel my body change almost immediately. My stomach started cramping (I read that even though it takes a while for the stomach to grow, there is so much going on inside it in the first several weeks that it will cramp due to all the changes it's preparing for), boobs even got bigger (perk!), and my appetite changed. I even lost 10 pounds! I think that is due to the fact that sugar has sounded unappealing, so I didn't eat anything sweet for 4 months. And for those of you who know me well, I am a sweet tooth, which I am sure adds a few pounds to my bod! haha Pregnancy is a great diet jk! I have been so lucky to have an 'easy' pregnancy. I haven't really had any morning sickness except for one lovely 'dry heave' due to an empty stomach. I feel very blessed to have gotten pregnant, because I know for some it can be difficult.

So the night we found out I was pregnant is pretty funny. Anthony and I were driving home from a play, and it was about 10:00pm. He said, "So, do you think you could be pregnant?" And I was like, "Well, maybe. I acutally am late." (I didn't even realize I was late before he asked!) He then suggested we buy a pregnancy test, and I was like, "No, I don't think I'm pregnant." Then I started thinking, "Oh, geez. What if I AM pregnant?!" So we went to the grocery store nearby and bought a test. Went home. Read the directions. Re-read the directions. (You don't want to mess that up. I know peeing on a stick sounds easy, but still.) Peed. Waited 3 minutes. And 2 lines appeared. Pregnant!

I think I was still in shock at this point. I just held up the test and showed Anthony and he didn't believe it. It was pretty funny. Then I was like, "Well, what if it says I am but I am really not?!" So of course I make Anthony drive to Wal Mart because that's the only place that is now open (it's midnight by now.) But I don't just want to buy a pregnancy test at midnight, and nothing else. That is too obvious. So we bought a bag of salad haha So we buy the test and the salad, and the checkout person says "good luck." Lovely. We go home, and I take another test. And another. All positive!

I wanted to keep them for memory sake, but then Anthony reminded me my pee was on them. Good point. So once the shock wore off, we couldn't stop smiling, and the rest that has followed has been great.

Anthony and I are dorks and decided we couldn't wait till the 20 week ultrasound to find out the gender of our baby, so our doctor said she could do a 'gender check ultrasound' at 16 weeks. This week was my 16th week, so we went in and got the gender check ultrasound. Anthony thought it was a boy, and I thought it was a girl. And guess who was right??!? I WAS! WE ARE HAVING A GIRL! And we couldn't be more thrilled. It will be so fun to have a little girl:) She will be the best dressed little lady on the block. The first image below is showing the gender. The doctor said, "Notice how there isn't anything hanging down right there?" and we were both like, "Yaaa..." and she said, "That means it's a girl!" The next picture is of her cute little hand. She has all her fingers spread out like she is waving. It is so neat. And then her little leg is the next picture, and the last one is a profile shot. It is a surreal experience seeing your baby for the first time. I had a perma-smile the whole rest of the day.

I will try and add more frequent updates. Pretty lame it took 16 weeks to blog about this news. Thanks to all my friends who love and care about me,and who are concerned and interested in how things are going. Love you guys!

Nitro Circus

Anthony's brother, Skye, works for APX Alarms, and they were hosting an end of the year party for employees and their family and friends. Skye scored some extra tickets to the event, which included Nitro Circus as the entertainment. For those of you who don't know what Nitro Circus is (and I didn't either before this!), it was actually a televsion show on MTV that featured a bunch of guys doing tricks and stunts on BMX and FMX bikes. So Nitro Circus was the entertainment for the APX party, and the guys did not disappoint. There were 15,000 people at the party, and somehow we scored front row seats! I was so close that the exhaust from the bikes was blowing in my face (too close for my liking, but still fun!). The show opened with all the riders sky diving out of a plane 5,000 feet above the crowd, and then they landed and jumped onto their bikes. It was so cool, and I don't even really like this sport ha

So, the famous rider of Nitro Circus is Travis Pastrana. I didn't know who he was, but I saw some people taking pictures of this guy, so I thought it was Travis Pastrana.

Turns out, that ain't him! I was taking pictures of the wrong guy. Travis is actually this guy...

He is a very good rider, and does some of the craziest tricks. The night consisted of tons of stunts, tricks, races, and people getting hurt. They had one APX employee try and do a back flip on a bike...not a pretty picture. The poor guy did NOT make the flip, and he hobbled off the track.

The Jazz Bear even attened the party. They towed him on a line all the way around the track and he did some jumps on a BMX bike. That upped cool points for the Jazz--they need cool points.

It was a great night out with my hubby. Afterwards we went to Smashburger--delish burgers. Little Isaiah fell asleep as soon as we sat down.
