Shopping bargains!

I went shopping today and found some great buys!  I went to a consignment shop here in Stevens Point Wisconsin and found some onesies for 50 cents a piece.  steal right.  All the onsies are yellow, green, white but I am not sure what we are having yet so those colors should be perfect right? 

Then I bought this little play floor mat thingy.  It makes noises and everything.  This baby will love it.  It was 5 dollars so I decided to buy it!

 Then on my shopping trip I went to Kohl's and bought this maternity top, pretty cute for summer, is what I was thinking when I bought it.  

 Then I seen these toning shoes for 40 dollars and I bought them as well, we will see how comfortable they are.  They are reebok tone ups.  I will let you know if they work.

Everyone keeps asking me if we are going to find out the sex of the baby.  We want a healthy baby, that is all that matters to me right now.  Does everyone find out the sex of the child?  Does it really matter if we do or not? Dale and I are not worried about what sex our baby is because really you can't changes it, so why worry about it?  But any who, what do you think, should we find out or not?  Did you find out?  Is it really all that worrisome if you are having a BOY or a GIRL?  I guess I am not to consumed with the sex of our baby, I want healthy and that is all that I care about.  But I did have 2 dreams about me having a boy, but that might be my mind just thinking.  Who knows!  My baby will be perfect no matter what sex the baby is.   Dale and I have already picked out names for our child, but we are not sharing them with the public!  We are just overly excited to become parents!

13 1/2 weeks

I am so glad the nausea is OVER.  I am nauseous once and a while but, before I hit the 12 week marker, I was nauseous all the time.  Before bed, during the middle of the night, before meals, while meat was cooking, after meals, all day at work, and just odd ball hours of the day.  I did not complain one bit, because I knew deep down in the back of my head that if I was nauseous, I was still pregnant.  I was so blessed and happy to have the nausea.  I know crazy right. Well, when you miscarry a child, its the little things that make it all worth while the second time around.  I am so grateful that I have a wonderful man who understands everything that I am going through with the pregnancy.  And he loves me, even if I am putting on a couple of extra pounds.  I will have to work out twice as hard, after I give birth to this wonderful joy of my life.  We are excited to become parents to our first child.  We have waited so long... But 100% worth it.

Baby Bedding

Dale and I decided to go out and look for bedding for the new little addition. We had so much fun.  I seen a lot for boys I liked and a lot for girls that I absolutely adored.  But, because we don't know what we are having we decided to pick out something for either sex.  I really like the jungle theme.  I think it is cute, I also figured the room is already painted green, so let not change it, because I would have to paint it.  I just don't want to be painting when I am pregnant.  But I figured the one we picked and bought would be PERFECT in the green room.  Tell me what you think!

I have been dying to tell all of you that Dale and I will be expecting our first child on HALLOWEEN!  Yes, we are seriously due on Halloween!  It will be one heck of a October for us.  We are over excited, about being pregnant.  We are three months and a week!  We can hardly wait to hold our new little addition in October.  But for now Happy Easter everybody and be safe!

Sad Sad Day!

On Friday, one of my co-workers went to the emergency room with a terrible problem.  She was 7 months pregnant and realized her baby stopped moving.  She went through all the work up and they sent her home.  The doctor told her that they had to come back on Saturday so they could induce her at the hospital.  She was going to give birth to her still born baby.  When the baby was born, the baby did not cry, but there was tears.  How devastating.  I am so heart broken, I feel for her and her family.  She needs a lot of prayers. She is a strong girl, but it can't be easy going through such a disappointment, and loss.  She had her baby shower the weekend before.  How can you come home and look at all the baby's things.  It has to be hard  not being able to hold her.  Not being able to comfort her when she is crying.  She named her child; Hannah Louise.  What a beautiful name for such a precious angel.  God guide them and bless them!

Fertility Care

We have been going to fertility care for about a year now.  Every other day is a lab draw~either it is my potassium that is too low or my thyroid that is too high.  My progesterone and Estrogen levels have been pretty steady lately but I do take supplements for the both of them.  It sucks to be 33 and have a body that doesn't allow you to produce your own progesterone or estrogen.  My body produces very little amounts of each.  But the medication has helped a great deal.  It is amazing that it has been a year ago when Dale and I decided to start going to fertility care and see what our issues were.  We wanted to find out why we are having such a hard time conceiving.  We have been married for 10 years and no child, and we never used any birth control.  We have learned a lot from this process.  It is a longer process than IVF or other procedures that they offer, but this way we are getting my body ready to care and carry a baby for 9 months.    I am replenishing my body of what nutrients and vitamins that I am missing.  It is an exciting exciting time in our life.  I am not sure what the next chapter in our life consists of but, I am ready for the adventure!!
