Heartburn SUCKS!

You know, I used to think that I only got heartburn when Grandma cooked matzah balls, or roast beef. During those times, Uncle Bryan and I would look at each other and share the Pepcid. It was a real family affair that happened at EVERY family dinner.

Last night I was proven wrong. Heartburn can strike at 4:23am. and with a vengeance! Holly Hell did it burn!!! Thinking back, I am trying to retrace my steps on what the hell I ate! It was the tacos (or the "white people" tacos as it was called at work yesterday. Apparently, the "white people"taco is a taco made with taco seasoning and hamburger meat... not the real tacos that you can get 15 minutes from here in Tijuana.).

I have a new found respect for people who deal with this burning/horrible feeling everyday, or more than once in a lifetime. I hope it doesn't come back. Tonight we are having Burger King because I can't stand the thought of eating anything else. However, I have just found out that McDonalds is now selling the Shamrock Shake- the most amazing shake on the planet! I wonder if I could keep it down???

Holy Bloat Batman!

Holy Batman do I have bloat!

I am so ready to be able to semi fit into my jeans. Who, at 6 weeks pregnant, can't fit in their jeans!? It makes me so sad. Especially since I just bought them in December.

So far, the places that I cannot eat because they got me close to throwing up (a fear that I have- I would much rather cry and be miserable): Chipotle and Applebee's. Yuck.

For the most part, I have felt pretty good. Cramping is still going on but from everything I have read, its totally normal. Everything is shifting down there to make room for the tadpole.

We are getting closer to that wonderful doctors appt. I might call up there next Monday, just to double check what they are going to do and make sure that I need complete family history (that way I can be prepared).

Yay to be halfway through the first trimester and boooo to cramps/bloat/and general nausea!!!

When you hit the jackpot.......

WE ARE PREGNANT! - well, I am at least!

Typing those words makes me feel like doing pretend Lamaze breathing.

The story:

Monday February 9, 2009 I came home from work at my normal time. I sat down at the computer and went through my pattern; Yahoo email, Facebook, Myspace,, and then CNN. As I sat there I realized that I still had not gotten my dreaded period. After an hour of convincing myself I should take a pregnancy test, I finally did.

The result: "HOLY CRAP, IS THAT A LINE? No, its not a line. HOLY CRAP, ITS A LINE!"

I called Shay who was still at work and told him that I needed him to come home, NOW. He argued with me for a few minutes because he was going to be home in an hour and half for dinner. There was NO WAY that I was waiting that long. As Shay walked in the door I threw the pregnancy test in his face and yelled that he had hit the bulls eye! Needless to say, he had the biggest grin on his face and gave the best hug and kiss of our 7 year relationship so far!

We didn't get a chance to really celebrate since Shay was dealing with 3 project deliveries. On Valentines day (the first day we actually got to see each other for longer then 2 hours) we decided that we would tell our parents and siblings. ALL of our parents gave us the reactions that we were hoping for! It was the best Valentines day we could have asked for! We spent the evening dining at The Cheesecake Factory and talking all about baby.

This is going to be such an amazing journey! We are excited to be doing this for the very first time and we cant wait for the day we can tell the world. Our first doctors appointment is scheduled for March 4, 2009. Hopefully, an ultra-sound will be done and we will be able to see the heart beat.
