Okay, so I know I'm bad and that I haven't writen a single thing since my very first post. So I'm not even going to attempt to fill you in on what happened inbetween because anyone reading this knows the major points in our life and if you have any questions you can just ask. So I'm just going to start fresh.

Everything has been wonderful, except this darn thing they call heartburn. Yes, I'm sure you all know what it is and may even have had the wonderful opportunity of experiencing it. It is not fun. It always seems to come around when I have nothing to take to make it better, so I am stuck just waiting for it to go away. Oh well, I can't complain. I wanted a baby and if this is the small price that I have to pay, then so be it. My last appoitment was on August 20th. It was great! We had our first ultra sound. It was so neat seeing all it's little parts. And yes, we chose to find out the gender. It's a BOY!!! Tyson was so excited, I am too though, dont' get me wrong. I was actually hoping for a boy because isn't there some saying out there like your daughts turn out like you ten fold or something. I don't know, maybe it's just what my mother always threatened me with. And I know I wasn't a joy to be around some times, so we'll just see what the future brings us. Oh, and by the way, if anyone was wondering, yes, I did gain weight. I actually gained 4 lbs. which my OB said was perfect, but I have a feeling when I go in for our next appointment it's going to be double that, if not triple. At least that how huge I feel. But anywho, so this last Friday when Tyson got paid ;) we decided to make our first round of baby shopping. I was very excited, Tyson tried to be reserved but I could tell he was excited too. We got a little outfit that was a pair a kahki (spelling?) pants and an orange hoodie. It was adorable, and then we got a thing of onsies and a cute, soft little blanket. We didn't want to go crazy because we knew that our families would so that's all we ended up with. But tomorrow we have to go get groceries and are planning on buying our first round of diapers. I'm not sure what to think, although from what I've been told I have to keep all my receipts because I may have too much of one size and have to take some back and exchange, which is fine, but what happens if I loose them from between now and then? I guess we'll just wait and find out.
So as you can see this is the exciting portion of my boring life. I'm not complaining though because I'm very excited for what the future holds. This fall semester is off to a good start. I love all my professors, so far. Hopefully it goes by smoothly. Although the one thing I'm not looking forward to is having to buy new clinical uniforms. Hehe, it's kind of funny because I already can't fit into some of my scrub tops. The girls at work just laugh. But I figure all my pants still fit so I'm in pretty good condition.
So on another note. I would love to be able to download some pictures, ultra sound and belly shots, on here but...first my camera battery decided to die and for some reason has decided that it doesn't want to charge, so now I have to go get a new battery but easier said than done. Finding the time to get a new one is the hardest part. I'm hoping this weekend. Ok, so second I don't have a scanner to download pictures either. So there, this is my sorry explanation.
Haha...I just have to laugh at myself because I ramble on a lot. And this is what I do on a daily basis, well lately anyway, so don't feel bad if you're beginning to nod off. I totally understand. Alrighty, well I'm all caught up and hopefully my ladies on the BBC board will be please that I've finally done a little updating :) So I hope you all have a good one and stay tuned, but if you don't I understand.

3w4d - Telling Tyson

So I finally told Tyson last night that I am pregnant. It didn't quite go how I wanted it to, but he took it well. I'm still kind of reserve about it. I don't want to get too excited because I am scared that the same thing will happen as last time. Tyson says that he feels good about it this time, but I'm still not sure. We're not going to tell anyone until we have out first appointment, not even our parents. The hardest part about having the m/c was telling everyone about it. And then they'd say they were sorry but I don't know why but it just kind of annoyed me. I know they're sorry but they weren't going through it. I am so proud of Tyson in that aspect. He did so many things he didn't have to do like sit in the bathroom with me when I was bleeding so much I couldn't even get off the toilet. He turely is my sole mate and I am completely and uterly in love with him. And I want nothing but to mary him and have this child with him.
I called and scheduled my first prenatal with Dr. Ward yesterday. It is set for June 25th at 2:00pm. I am ready for it but I wonder howcome they don't want to see me sooner? I don't know but I figure there's nothing I can really do about it. I still can't quite believe that I am pregnant just because I don't have any syptoms. I bought a couple more tests and took one yesterday too and it was +. I have two more and I'll probably take another one within the next few days, after my period is due, just to kind of reasure myself. I hope that when I'm further along I can kind of cheat and get one of the girls at work to help me find the heart beat with the monitors at work. I guess that's a plus side of working on an OB floor. Well now the waiting begins.
