8 weeks

I am officially 2 months pregnant! :) Crazy!! At about Christmas, I'll have 2oo days to go! :)

We have our first midwife appointment this week........ which we are VERY excited for!

I guess I really don't have much else to say on the pregnancy aspect of things?...

I have days where I feel more nauseas, days I feel great, days I don't feel so hot.......?... but pretty much feel pretty good! :)

AND did I mention I have now ate babybel cheese, ice cream, and pizza with cheese on it WITHOUT lactaid and not had any trouble??? too too too weird..... but YEAH for me!!

I'll post pics of my 8th week sometime today...when K is awake......

6:30 A.M.

My body has been wanting to go to bed before 9pm but is getting up at 6:00-6:30 A.M.! Oh well, I enjoy so peace and quiet throughout the house....K asked me "what are you doing?" and I said " getting up" and she goes "ugh!" LOL She's snuggled as a bug in a rug still in bed.....I love watching her sleep ;)

We did go shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but didn't start off until about 8am. We bought $160 d0llar sheets for $40! We each got a $10 gift certificate to the local outlet mall which we then both used at a consignment shop we hadn't ever been in! We were looking for a few maternity clothes. My jeans are beginning to feel a little too tight......and Fridays now at work at blue jean we'll probably go look at Old Navy where I'm told they have longs and maternity - if not - I can order some online.....We ended up finding me 2 shirts and a pair of brown dress pants (long enough!!). The dress pants were brand new w/tags for $13.90! Did I mention how long it took me to find dress brown pants NOT maternity? FOREVER. I'm pretty excited because I have a few shirts that are stretchy that'll last me awhile....and they go best with my brown pants. We got a few other Christmas gifts....and would've been home by 11:00am had we not had someones kitties to feed :)

Ok, so my neighbor just scared the crap out of me. I'm sitting here typing this post....6:40am and someone knocks on the door!! We have no peep I say "who is it?" and I hear a little laugh....and I thought initially, just kids playing........ but at 6:40am!? Then I hear a little voice say "It's your paper"...and I thought well that's weird that the local newspaper would deliver it to my door?....but ok...opened the door and it was the neighbor being a friendly soul bringing our paper to us.......but only because she told me to sleep in and not get up early!! LOL She's the sweetest soul ever. She's come over now for over 2 months and given me a shot every night.... we are down to less than one butt will be thankful, as I'm sure Karen will too.

Yesterday, we got up at 7:30am! I SLEPT IN! We had some coffee, read the paper and it was probably close to 10:00am before we headed outside. It was raining, surprise, surprise. The weather man had said that it was to let up.......well, it rained, rained, and rained. We were pretty soaked, soaked, soaked. We connected extension cord, after extension cord....... (after we dried each plug off, taped it with electrical tape and then plugged it back in). We plugged things in, had things plugged in wrongly (red running one way, white the other), swore at the staple gun, rolled eyes at each other....... and did I say we got wet? At one point I stood at the road and yelled "QUIT RAINING!" Yes, at one point, I wanted to say TO HELL with it all..........

Nonetheless, we turned it on last night (minus a few other small un-show making things) to plug in today (which the weather man has told me it is to be a SUNNY day!) and we'll get those hooked up, get our Diaper Drive bin out for Basics for Babies and we should be set for the next 30 days.

K has tomorrow and Tuesday off which will be nice as she could really use a rest. She has worked her butt off to get this show working. She's the best est wife ever. We've come to realize we can't give a date so much as to when we are starting allow us some flexible time to get stuff set up. If we needed 2 days yesterday to do it....we could have stopped, rested, and finished Sunday....although, we were ready to have it done. Oh did I mention we came in at 5:30pm? :) that's a long day outside in the rain......... but we DID it.

Now, if you have the chance to come by and see it...... or you know someone who lives in the area and can - please SPREAD THE WORD!! I want as many people to see it as possible!!! We have like 16 if you is kind of a long show to watch the whole thing - but WORTH IT!!!

I'll do a pregnancy post next ;)

I've hit a milestone, have taken pictures to put on here........but for today all I can say is...


We're plugged in - enough said.

we are both exhausted...............

check it out:

Video of this years show will not be on anytime soon....... but I do plan on having video on for those who are long distance and can't see it in person.

Simple Green Salad Recipe


6 Cups torn pieces of iceberg and/or romaine lettuce
2 small tomatoes, cored and cut into wedges
1 medium size cucumber, peeled and sliced
1 medium size sweet green pepper, cut into rings (we used red pepper)
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled


2/3 cup olive oil
3 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

Follow these directions:

Toss together lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber in a serving bowl. Top with green pepper rings (or red pepper) and feta cheese. Set aside. Whisk together all the ingredients for the salad dressing. When ready to serve, toss salad with the dressing. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Sunday Crunchies

I sit and type as my wife sits next to me crunching corn nut..... oh the music of my ears. LOL (and she'll love me posting that!)

So.... thanks to my good friend Deb aka Too, we decided to spend a little bit more money and buy a laptop without having to go out in the wee hours of the morning to buy a laptop that I don't know *quite* everything that is on it but the basics. My wife is so good to me! This laptop will get SUCH good use!! It should be here this week..... thank you to expedited shipping! :)

Today, we spent the entire day....hanging Christmas lights. We have everything (minus some tall candy canes) and the green LED's that should be arriving in the mail tomorrow.... we'll get them up hopefully on the Friday after Thanksgiving and we'll be good to turn it on!! CANNOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!

I was not feeling all that hot yesterday.....but we believe it was because we ate Jack in the Crack for lunch.....seasoned curly fries, and grease gut wonder I didn't feel good and the baby must not have liked it. Nonetheless, today I've been eating like a pig! I've been hungry alot! Also, another side note.... I ate a piece of cheese with no lactaid today.........and have not pooped!! I have hoped and hoped that this pregnancy would help my lactose intolerance.... I'm not going to push it....but was kind of exciting!!

That's it for now.........

Not Our Cat - But Hilarious

Week 7

There are lots of posts down below.... I had to catch up :) don't miss any.......

here's for this week - and I'll take a picture too.

We're almost to 2 months!! I can't wait to get past the first trimester............and feel a little bit more settled......

Bouts of nausea this week.....once in the early morning (which I took very easily, got dressed, and laid in bed), Friday, nausea most of the mid-morning......but not early morning...... but so far so good........

Life As We Now Know It

Warning........ maybe TMI following...... you are been warned ;o)

We had planned for a night with some friends on Tuesday night - and also got a surprise visit from another friend who had found out we were pregnant. We were having a great time sitting around, chatting about pregnancy, midwives, etc. and all the fun stuff......

I was feeling a bit crampy......not uncommon, but was having some trouble getting comfortable. (later I found out Molly - the surprise guest - had heard me taking some deep breaths to get through it)

Molly was getting ready to leave and I stood up to give her a hug and felt as if I needed to go the bathroom immediately. I then saw blood...... lots of it. I yelled for K who was in shock too as to what was going on. I couldn't move as my body was in total control of what was going on and I had no option then to let what needed to come out. I explained to K to let the guests know what had happened and what an odd feeling for them - but what was I to do? it was kind of weird the whole scenario.

Once I was capable of getting off the toilet, we decided a call to the midwife was in order...(9:00pm). (Little side note......can I tell you how thankful I am for a phone number in which I can call and talk to the midwife at any hour......and get her voice, not an answering service, to page some on call doctor to contact me?!) We called Winni and she said that she felt like an ultrasound was in order. She told me to be on bed rest for the rest of the night and then she'd call me in the morning with the time of the ultrasound. (Also, to be off of work the next day....which just happened to be an in between day of people having it off - which worked out perfect!)

We weren't planning on having any ultrasounds....but for medically necessary things it was ok.

I bled once more that night....then nothing else. Everytime I woke to pee in the middle of the night, I'd wake up and go...... nothing else? what the hell!? I do not know how many times that night K and I woke up and said "what the hell!"?

Wednesday morning K did some research online and we had been told by our friend, by the midwife, etc. that it is very, very common for one to lose a twin, but still have a live baby inside. We had hopes.

Through all of this, I was essentially very calm. K was quite shocked. (I'm normally not the calm one) but for some reason had a feeling all would be all right. (Don't get me wrong, I still was in shock, and didn't understand what was going on) . K said "Since you're so calm, you realize what's going on...I take some of that and try to stay calm about it too!".

Another side note...... the night before I had stated to K and Dad that we needed to focus on their only being one baby and not 2....until we found out for sure we were having 2...... intution by chance? :)

Our President was coming to speak at our Wednesday morning work meeting....I had told K to leave her cell phone on her desk and just to check it upon her return from the meeting. Well, the midwife had called at 8:45 and I was to be there at 9:00am and it takes about that many minutes to drive from where I am to the hospital I was going to........and now, how do I get a hold of K whose in the meeting?! I try to call work and get the receptionist..... no one answers. I try, and try again........ no answer. I finally clue in there are some people who don't attend the meeting and got one of them to go upstairs and get K to get to the phone......while I'm on the road driving.....

I tell her - I'm on my way, you've gotta leave now if you want to be there on time - she said "I'm outta here!".

She met me JUST in time (at registration) for the ultrasound....

The ultrasound tech was a SUPER AWESOME guy! He did some checking of dates (the difference of IVF vs. last period date), etc. how far along we were, etc. One date said 6 weeks, one date said 6 weeks 3 days....... he was honest and said " You're pretty early to see anything, we'll do our best but just letting you know you might not see anything".....

He then put the ultrasound on my stomach and within a few seconds we saw a heartbeating! It was pretty dang amazing! He probed around a bit (with a very full bladder!) measured kidneys, etc. then he did an transvaginal ultrasound (which I wasn't too keen on having had bled and didn't want the chance of miscarriage.....) but we did it too.......which he pretty much measured most of the same things - other than like my ovaries, etc.

I came home and called the midwife, she was ecstatic. K went back to work. I laid on the couch literally all day long.......I really wanted to go to work....... but I had to take care of me and the baby.

So, long story short..... we had quite the scare...... we now know there is 1 baby inside me, with a heart beat, growing greatly....... we are blessed.

We won't know and don't know wether the bleeding was me losing a twin, sloughing off some lining, etc. We are assuming it was a twin....but everything happens for a reason.

Stick With Me!

Thanks fellow blog readers for sticking with me in the midst of me not wanting to take the time to post......sometimes it's just like that. :)

First things first.........I finally got a BAG OF CRAP. I was *ahem* working yesterday and happened to check WOOT throughout the day...for their what seems to be monthly woot-off, and got me a bag of crap. I had originally chose to get 3 bags of crap...... but K reminded me that if I really wanted one, I'd better just go with 1......and be thankful I got that! :) So, my one bag of crap should be arriving sometime in the next week.....

Secondly, we ordered a memory foam queen pillow topper thingy from overstock. K hasn't really liked our mattress for some time and so this will hopefully help. It was a very good should be here sometime this week.

Thirdly, the green LED lights that we ordered....... well they should be here this week too.

Lots of fun stuff to get in the mail! CAN'T WAIT!!

Anyone here planning on going shopping on Black Friday? Now, you can't say NO WAY unless you've done it once.......I'm pretty sure once you go one time - you'll be hooked - if not to buy anything - to watch all the crazies. LOL We'll head out on Friday, don't know what hour.... we're on the hunt for a laptop (which I'm hoping to buy for nearly the same price online before having to stand in line at the ungodly hours of the morning) and also half price socks at Fred Meyer. We'll buy some Christmas presents and be done :) It really is a lot of fun!!

This was the fun post........ now onto a pregnancy post :)

Beans Beans Magical Fruit

Ok, so really this post has nothing to do with the beans I ate at lunch today in a very yummy burrito with some taco meat, salsa and guacamole - those beans - which are blowing my gut up at this hour- STILL. :) and no it isn't the pregnancy.......its just my system.

We had a busy night tonight. We came home, checked email (a nice surprise...more in a minute), chatted with dad about the days happenings, headed to the library to return a movie, went to Costco for some nuts/cheese for dad and cat litter for us, to the teriyaki place to get some teriyaki with fried rice (the fried rice which they never gave the pregnant lady!!) and then we came home.......just in time for my nightly shot, then finally about 8pm we sat down and ate dinner...... I'm now writing to all of you while using my dad's laptop (thanks dad!) while K is watching Chuck..... then Heroes.

SPERM and BACTERIA - We were told before doing our cycle that there was an issue with the sperm donor and his sample. There was bacteria in it, making fertilization null without our ICSI step (injecting sperm into the egg). This is just a short blurb.... tonight we were pleasantly surprised that our clinic had called our cryobank and we will be refunded all of our last 6 vials that we ordered - a good chunk of change. :) great news.

WORK & BABY STUFF - I said to K as we were pulling in this morning "We're going to bombarded by everyone when we walk in!" By about the 1st hour and no one had said anything, I was beginning to become a bit leary.....but the Congratulations began rolling in... and there were a few I was a bit concerned about.....but everyone took it great and we got a congratulations out of our friends and the people who care about us most :) We really are blessed. There were a few questions........ and will probably be a few more as time goes along. All went well.........and those cookies are awesome!!

that's it for now........

Quick Weekend In Review

I'm tired and just don't have the energy to say much tonight........and hope I'll have more energy and/or feeling like writing more........ but then again I'm blogging without obligation too ;) just don't want people to get bored and never check my blog because I don't ever update it!!

This weekend K and my dad hung lights, hung lights, and hung lights. We realized pregnant lady should not be touching lead full Christmas lights.......we turned the ones on tonight that we got on the roof, the Merry Christmas Sign, and it looks GREAT. We have green LED's coming this week and we will get them on the roof when we can....... and we'll set the yard up probably sometime Thanksgiving ish.......

We made cookies for those at work to tell them of our pregnancy......... and took them there late tonight. Everyone has 2 cookies - one pink and one blue with a little poem on it ;o) we shall see the shock factor tomorrow.........

That's it for now...........

Weekend Happenings

Hello Friends! :)

We have had a somewhat relaxing, somewhat quiet, and a very enjoyable weekend.

Friday night we hung out at home. I was a bit ancy to do something, but by the time we ate, got my shot, etc. I was ready for bed! We did watch some of the Womb movie (which we *finally* finished - without me falling asleep!)

Saturday morning we got up and went Garage Saleing. There weren't that many to go to and it was raining.... but we got a pie pan and a few movies for the boy to watch (Saturday night). We then came home and had turkey sandwiches on sourdough bread with some chips. YUM. (This has been my staple latley). K then took a nap, I played on the computer, and then we started to put Christmas lights up........

(Silly us with all the lead, etc. in Christmas lights...... so I washed my hands and put gloves on.....) We got part of the house done with red and white....(we are having to re-clip all the lights which is time consuming!)

Saturday night we had Braxton over for a sleep over :) We watched Free Willy 2, played some Wii Bowling, Baseball, and Tennis and played in the water :) It was fun! K slept with him..... and I slept in our bed. Sure like it better when we sleep together! :)

Sunday we're just cleaning house, doing laundry, and relaxing a bit.

Dad's been gone since Thursday..... he went to Aunt Tom and Uncle Mary's and then headed over to Grand Coulee to spend some time with Mom...... so he'll be home here in a few hours.

We are having, guess what? TURKEY for dinner. We got a turkey from is herb rubbed turkey breast and is YUMMY. So, we'll eat that tonight and have sandwiches the rest of the week with it!

Ryan goes in tomorrow for her surgery....... she's a bit nervous about it, which I would expect one would thinking a bit extra about her today. Everything that is meant to be, will be......

People have asked me what my numbers are......I don't get tested anymore for numbers. I got 2 checks - one for the positive and the 2nd for the doubling. Now, I'm pregnant :) I'm just like any other pregnancy.....(and some may get more blood checks then others). I have my first midwife appointment on December 4th....... and as you can see above..... I was one week ahead of myself last week...... so we are just now into our 5th seems like it has been forever already!!

That's it for now..........

Quick Morning Post

We are very grateful Obama won in our household....... and that our baby will have him as a President until he is about 4 - or maybe even 8! :)

Secondly, am feeling good.....haven't really had any bouts of nausea lately and is kind of just an "unknown" time and hope that my numbers are continuing to increase and we have our first midwife appointment on December 4th! :)

Thirdly, thinking about my sister who will be going in for biopsy/surgery on Monday to remove an ovary and/or uterus......and will be off work for some time (and have the financial stress of that). That she have some peace now...and until Monday and keep her mind off of it. Mom and Grandma will go down for the surgery. (The doctor does not believe it is cancerous).

That's it for now.................. more later.

Monday Night Thoughts

I started back to work today - oh joy. I found that I wasn't really that bored and/or stir crazy last week - but seemed moreso to be bored/stir crazy this past weekend. We did a lot though. We went to Bellingham, took down Halloween Decorations, discussed Christmas decorations, got some shampoo and conditioner on sale at JC Penny, went on a hunt for dress brown size 12 tall pants (in hopes of ordering them via catalog from JC Penny) and ended up going to NY & Co and they were having an awesome sale of buy one get one 75% off - and an awesome wife who still had $25 on her gift card! So, we both got a pair of pants (and they had our sizes!) for $25.00!!

Tonight I felt a bit sure it'll happen more often than not.......and just accepting it and letting it be.... helps. :) My mom was a good person to talk to...... and Dad was a good person to make me laugh :)

Wanna hear all that's gone on the past few days - to maybe put me out of sorts a bit?

Daylight Savings Time (and my sleep schedule all screwed up - and I NEED my sleep!)
Oh, my sleep schedule screwed up from being too hot......
Anxiety of pregnancy tests, blood tests, etc.
nah...not too much been going on :)

I felt great today at work! We woke up early and had our coffee before showering. This may be our new routine so I can have something in my stomach. It seems that really helps. I didn't start feeling a bit queasy until tonight. I went to make chicken, and some thai-lime rice that I had bought at Trader Joes......well I couldn't even smell that rice.......yuck. So, it is in the fridge and we'll see if K wants to eat it........and/or if I could stomach the smell tomorrow. I did eat some chicken (felt as if I needed some protein) and then some broccoli. I then ate a few crackers. I'm feeling a bit hungry and will try to eat something a bit of protein before going to bed and see how that helps. :)

Today after getting the pregnancy test - it finally dawned on me - we're going to have a kid. CRAZY!!!!!!!!

I called the midwife today.....she'll probably call me back tomorrow. :) We're very excited for our first appointment.

OH and the whole week thing (not knowing etc.) the only reason I'm wanting to know is I'm reading a Pregnancy Week by Week book and don't wanna be reading ahead! I NEED TO KNOW! (I'll ask Winni tomorrow)

It just doesn't make sense what the IVF clinic said. They said I'm 4 weeks, 2 days from October 22nd. how does that work? I can't even be 4 weeks, 2 days from October 17th! The first day of my last period was October's all good. This is the only reason I'm wanting to know......heck, I know the babies gonna come when they are ready!! :)

Waiting for my wife to get home from a movie.......then I'm headed to bed.


They said I am 4 weeks, 2 days along...?....
(we're not so sure of these dates though......speaking to someone who doesn't speak very good English and will call back and confirm possibly later in the week....

Post for Grandma To Be

I had thought about doing a separate pregnancy blog, actually made it, posted the link on this blog, and decided to delete it :) So.....all my pregnancy followings will happen here.

WITH that being said..... here is my first pregnancy post for Grandma.

I had already thought about doing this.....for Grandma who isn't within very short distance to take in some of the pregnancy stuff :) but also for those who wish to watch the changes going on and the miracle of life. :)
Tomorrow I go to Bellingham IVF for my second blood draw...... here is to HIGH #'s! :) I'll post when I can..... I head back to work tomorrow after 1.5 weeks of being off.......
Off to eat some saltines and frosting....... yum.

Wife's Halloween Outfit

Early Morning Stuff

So last night we went to bed and I set the clock back an hour - but of course - forgot the exact time as to what it was (but wasn't getting out of bed to check it!) Well, I woke up this morning at 4:00 (5:00) which is a bit early for me....... I had a bad dream that I was bleeding........ugh. I'm not stressed really!! :) Yoga will help me relax a bit this week.......

Then I got up, got me a banana, and looked at the clock on the stove and busted a gut. Somehow I had changed the clock back 2 hours and have been going stir crazy in the bedroom saying NO YOU CAN'T GET UP YET! when in all actually it was 6 (or 7). Still too early, but more doable then 5am!

Nonetheless, I'm up, I feel good, and cozy'd up with dad's laptop in my chair with a blanket.......and my which I've been eating lots. LOL

Oh and a little tidbit that I thought I got to read only to week 4 yesterday - but K informed me I am on week 5! I am already 5 weeks pregnant! THAT'S NUTS!!!!!! She informed me last night I have 8.5 more months to go!

The tidbit from my pregnancy book: Women with nausea and vomiting have a lower chance of miscarriage. BRING IT ON! :) I wonder if some people just have nausea but never any vomiting? and if what I feel now is all I will feel? or if it will get worse?........or better? :) just thinking outloud.......

Past 2 Days

Last night Dad spent the night at Tom and Mary's and so K and I spent the night handing out candy to ghosts and goblins. We had a LOT of people. We live in a great neighborhood for people to get lots of candy but yet walk around safely. We turned the lights out about 8:30pm and the doorbell still rang 3-4 more times. Some people just don't get the lights out concept I guess.

This morning we woke up and had coffee, read the paper, ate ham and egg mcmuffin for breakfast and then went to Bellingham to the bank, The Greenhouse (kind of a store like Pier One but more fun!) (we got some candles and a new spatula) and then we went to Trader Joes (for a few items...... Ginger tea, crystallized ginger, a sandwich for lunch, etc.). We then stopped by a friends house to see the work she had done. Visited a friend of this friend to see her new house and then back home we came. We took down the Halloween Decorations and then we started to put clips on our Christmas lights only to find out our C9 clips don't fit our C7 bulbs. We may have to go purchase some smaller clips (but we really like the C9 clips).

I'm thinking of starting a separate Baby Blog - to follow the happenings, etc. of our journey. Any suggestions as to what it should be called? Or would you prefer me to take over this blog with the baby stuff? (just wanting some opinions.... :o)

I felt queasy on Thursday morning from about 10am-1pm. I didn't feel anything yesterday until 8pm (but that was because I needed to eat). Today, I didn't eat until close to 9am (after coffee) and after eating I felt very queasy and felt that way up until about 1pm. Tonight I felt a bit queasy too but I think that is because we had Taco Soup for dinner and it is pretty acidy. Other than that, I'm feeling just fine :) night sweats.......and am either cold and/or hot. No in between.

I think that is it for now....... I'll see if I can't get some Halloween Pics on here tomorrow sometime.
