Home Sweet Home...sort of

I say sort of only because it was really hard to leave that comfortable king sized bed at my grandparents.
We absolutely have to get a new mattress.
For starters, the one we have us awful & it's only a full size. ::gasp:: I know.
Don't get me wrong, I love me some snuggle time with the hubs, but a girl needs some leg room, & then he knocks me off the edge sometimes.
You know that dream, where you feel like you're falling? It's something like that, only I actually feel it when I hit the ground
It's just not a whole lot of fun.
The only comfortable spot is in the middle, so by the time he roots his way to the middle ("he says that it's in his sleep & completely unintentional"), he's knocked me off the side.

In baby news:
I go for my 2nd Beta in the morning. My nasesousness has gotten a little worse and the spotting completely stopped over the weekend! I'm taking that as a major blessing. I pray my numbers have been doubling as they are supposed to!
My husband has been absolutely precious, kissing my belly & talking to the baby. It's made me cry a few times, it's just so sweet. The new ticker I added in the top right corner of my blog says something new about what is happening with the baby everyday, he LOVES that thing! Everyday he asks what the baby is doing today. Anyways we told my family this weekend, pictures & story to come this week!

Thank you all for your kind words & thinking of us. I really appreciate each and every one of you!

It's 2 am....

And I can't sleep. I've tossed and turned all night. Literally trying to visulize sheep jumping over a fence, with those cute number bubbles above them. No luck yet. It seems that my morning sickness is actually more like middle of the night sickness, but hey I'll take it! I can sleep in the car on the way to Georgia tomorrow, well I guess it's today actually. Anyways, I realized last night that after all this time of trying & testing, I never actually got to "see" my BFP. Sad huh? Luckily I had one lonely digital hpt under the sink, begging to be used. So at 1:30 am, I figured if I couldn't sleep at least I could have a little fun! It's still positive & wow, what an amazing feeling seeing that one little word pop up on that screen! We made it to day 15! Woohoo! It really put my mind at ease about the spotting, which seems to be getting lighter by the way. Sorry if that's tmi!
I promise to post the test for you guys later, if I actually got up to upload It now, my husband would think I had lost it for sure! I don't know how much blogging time I will have over the weekend, my great uncle passed away on Wednesday. It is very sad, but we know that he is in a better place & not hurting anymore. He had been in and out of the hospital for the past year, and was really ready to be with Jesus. I can't help but feel a little relieved to know that he is no longer in pain. The funeral is later today & the burial is Saturday morning. It was lucky that we had tickets for the Georgia game this weekend and we already planning on coming home for the weekend. I had pretty much decided that we would not go to the game, but my grandmother told me that we most certainly were. I quote " your uncle Paul was a dawgs fan, & I know he would think it was reduculous to have tickets and not go!" it's funny how everything worked out really. We found out we were pregnant the day that he was put in the ICU. It's almost like God gave us a new little life, when he was taking one home to be with him. I hate that I wasn't there to say goodbye, but I know he knew how much I loved him. I'm thankful for that.

Always hug your loved ones & tell them that you love them, you never know how much time is left.

So I have an exciting announcement to make!

My husband & I went to the Dr. yesterday to discuss some testing & when we got there, they made me pee in a little cup.
I hate peeing in cups, but miraculously yesterday I actually had to go.
Don't you just hate it when they make you do that & you don't have to go?
You know that they are just standing out there thinking "Geez what is taking so long?"
Thankfully, it wasn't one of those experiences.
Except for the fact that when I came out the nurse & my husband were gone. I had no idea where they went. So now I'm standing in the hallway with a pee cup & don't know what to do with it. Talk about embarrassing. Nothing like wandering around lost with your own...yeah well you get the idea.

Anyways, We go in & talk to the Dr. about our concerns with TTC. He listened & then said, "All of these things are good things to think about & possibly keep in mind but your test today was actually positive..."
Wait...what? No, I've been spotting since Sunday....we came to talk to you about our next steps!
We ran a beta & it was positive too.

So as of yesterday: My number one favorite thing about the first day of fall is that I found out that I am pregnant!

However, my Dr. is concerned about the spotting, he said that this really could go either way.
It might be nothing & it might be the beginning of the end. I will go in for more blood work on Tuesday, to make sure things are progressing as they should.

I really went back & forth yesterday, I was excited, nervous, scared, apprehensive, sad, not wanting to be excited, It was just a a roller coaster of emotions to take in. In the end though, I decided to be excited. We are so happy and if it doesn't work out, it just wasn't meant to be. I can accept that & we can try again.

But for today & until I'm told differently:
We Are Having A Baby!!!!
Due Date June 3rd, 2010

Things I have yet to understand.....

There are very few reasons in this world, that make me feel happy that summer is coming to an close. It's a sad time for me.
Because other than Summer & then Fall thru Christmas, I simply have no use the rest of the years weather. I'm very cold natured & hate being cold more than anything else.
For me, the perfect year would be something like this:
Summer Fall Christmas Spring
If the flowers would start blooming again the week after Christmas, that would be fine with me.
Unfortunately for me, that won't be happening this year because of this little guy:

This my dear readers, is a Woollyworm. Or so I'm told.
Apparently up here in Ken-tucky, that's how we tell what the winter's gunna be like 'round these parts.
Black - BAD *should read: Pippy will be very unhappy*
Brown - Mild *much more acceptable to Pippy*
So the above woolyworm is predicting that winter will be bad in the beginning, mild in the middle & then get worse again.
Unfortunately this is not the woolyworm that I found crawling across my porch the other night.
Oh no, that little sucker was solid, pitch, black.
::cries::

But I digress, there are a few things that I am actually glad about.
For one, I love fall, the sights, smells & fall decor. I also love football season.
This summer however, I have a new reason that I'm happy summer is coming to a close.....


Gah.
Hopefully after a good freeze, these things will go back where they came from.

The balloons of Uga's revenge...

This is the view from the back door, as you can see the front of the car was quite full.
I imagine he wasn't pleased when he opened the drivers side door.
Serves him right.

Practical jokes. Operation: Uga's Revenge

I love practical jokes & I especially love playing them on other people. I have a long list of practical joke ideas ready, for when the opportunity come along.
An opportunity came along today.
My very best friend MC, is married to Tiny. Tiny loves to rag on my Georgia Bulldogs. His most recent target has been "Uga" the very cute Georgia mascot and well, that just cannot be tolerated.
I give you Operation: Uga's Revenge!
Below you will see Tiny's car the same way he saw it when he got done at work today.
The inside of Tiny's car was filled with about 135 red, black & white balloons, ready to spill out as soon as he opened the door.

I wrote all over the windows...


There were pipe cleaners everywhere, on the antenna, spoiler, wheels, mirrors, windshield wipers...



Yeah, I loved every minute of it.
I'll post pics of the balloons later, MC has those on her Camera.

Do you have any great practical joke ideas or stories? I would love to hear about them!

*Slaps own wrist*

I have been an awful blogger this week. I hope all of you can forgive my lack of interesting things to write about.
I promise I will find a way to make it up to you.

In other news: My friend MC's contractions started last night & we thought for awhile that the baby was coming, but they sent her home from the hospital at about 4:30 am.
Her contractions were 10 minutes apart last night, but they may have stopped by now, I haven't talked to her yet this morning, I'm sure she is trying to get some sleep after being up so late.
I'm so excited that the baby will probably be coming soon!

Oh come on...

Who gets a cold in August/September?
This is insane! Practically everyone in my whole town has one, & the hubs has a sinus infection.
Of course, now I'm catching it too. Even with daily Vitamin C, huge vitamins & POM juice.
I was really hoping I would get lucky this time, but this stuffy nose is proving otherwise...
