Fifths Disease---Immune!

God has protected our little family once again! After getting the blood results back, it showed that I was already exposed to fifths disease a long time ago. After one is exposed once, you are immune after that. Pretty cool!!! So, baby is safe and I'm still feeling good. Praise God!!!

Not immune---baby bills! I already have a file started of baby bills and this little one is already costing money...I can't imagine what it will be like when it's actually here! I might want to learn how to sew, cook, and change cloth diapers. Ha...that'll never happen...

To pee or not to pee...

That is the question!  I absolutely HATE waking up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.  It's just so annoying especially when it is so dark that no one in their right mind would want to turn on the lights and go blind for a few seconds.  And...have you ever thought like I have that there is something scary in the toilet waiting for you to sit down in the dark half asleep?!?!  Maybe I have a messed up thought process in the middle of the night.   

Anyway, as annoying as it is...even multiple times a night...I know more is coming my way.  Not only the dark, monster in the toilet, getting up to pee moments, but soon enough there will be a BABY ready to wake up at any given time, which I'm sure, will not be ideal for me.  But's gonna be a great adventure and I'm super excited about all of it!  

That is the question, to pee or not to pee, because all too often I try and hold it till morning but am soon discouraged by what the clock says and I say to myself, "to pee!"

The belly at 13 weeks

Well, it's not much yet, but trust me, it feels BIG sometimes. It's my belly!!! There's a little baby in there about 6 cm long. It already looks really cute! I've learned a few things thus far:
*don't eat too much at one sitting
*don't eat hot dogs
*I love ice cream- I used to, so I'm not sure if that's something I've learned
*Baby needs vitamins- and I gag every time I take them
*It's really in there
*My students think it's funny to come up with ridiculous names---Ponce
*As much as I need foot rubs, so does Thomas- he takes good care of me
*My toilet gets a lot more use
Those are just a few...many more ahas to come! Something you all can be praying for--- I need to go in for blood tests because I have been exposed to fifths disease. Pray that everything is still OK and that my blood results come back normal. Thanks :)

We hope you enjoy our blog!!! But remember, it's all Bridget's fault.

It's all Bridget's fault

It started at Shirley's, i know, yum!  Bridget came up with this grand idea of a blog....well, it's more like a baby blog.  So here goes!  Week 13 is where we're at.  Getting fatter by the minute...not sure if it's the food I love or the little baby in there.  I'm feeling good.  No morning sickness, no weird cravings, no horrible fatigue and no complications!  I am so thankful!  I'm not sure what I would do if I had to run out and puke while my fourth graders wondered what the heck was wrong with me.  God is good.  No one has witnessed the dash out of the room.  

It really all started when I fainted in class.  The kids almost called 9-11.  Not really, but they were pretty close.  I started to fall over and caught myself on Joe's desk and said, "hmmm, I don't feel too good"  and sat down.  They got the nurse and Thomas got me.  Home I went and just a few weeks later I saw the stick....PREGNANT!  There wasn't an exclamation mark on the stick, but there was in my head.  Not so much excited, but more like crapping my pants.  Now, however, I am very is Thomas.  

Well, I hope you enjoy the sporadic updates of baby and us.  Things are going well so far and we would love any extra prayers we can get.  Pray that baby makes it for the long haul and that I don't sweat to death this summer.  Love to you all!  Many more posts to come...
