I kept a small journal throughout the past year on my pregnancy journey, but since I've started printing my blog, I decided I wanted to document it on here as well. Not only is this important to document for myself, but it's just as important to document for others who have been trying everything to get pregnant. I learned a lot from reading others stories and it helped soo much. Here is our pregnacy journey...
My Brother and his wife announced only weeks later that they were pregnant and I was so happy for them...but obviously broken hearted at the same time. It was really hard for a while, but I KNEW in my heart that this wasn't supposed to be. Heavenly Father had a plan for us and it just wasn't the time. Yes it was hard and took such a toll, but many blessings came from it. Oh how grateful I am for my loving Heavenly Father who has blessed us in so many ways. That blessed spirit wasn't meant to be with us, but we know we will see you again.
12 weeks later we had these two ultrasounds:
That's right, IT'S A BOY!! And I don't have to tell you when I say that we are so happy and amazingly blessed.

I just got back from an amazingly awesome birthday weekend with the girls and I wish I was still there dangit! But, that's just the way it goes. Alli and Tyson will be here this weekend so I shouldn't complain. Anyway, I will probably post our fun weekend here soon, but in the mean time, go on over to CUPCAKE DIARIES because Alli posted a freakin' cute celebration wreath tutorial. I decided I really need to make one!! If I had just made one months ago, I could have hung mine up today!! What's up with that!
Look how stinkin' cute this thing is!

The following are my top 5 reasons why OCTOBER is my favorite month:
- It's a Fall month and that is my favorite season-This includes Fall smells, Fall decor, Fall weather, clothes, Mini Bazaar, and of course Fall candy (Candy Corn)!!
- Love watching Conference
- My birthday month with my twin! (we have a lot of fun)
- Halloween is my favorite holiday
- HORROR movies! I don't know if I will beat my record this year though of horror movies watched. I think last year it was almost 30 in the month of October. Thank you Fear Fest!
- In two weeks, my mom, Amy, and I are going to Alli's in Ogden to spend our birthday weekend! We're going to go shopping, eat, hang out, love up on my nephew, be girly, and just be plain out awesome!!
- The weekend after that, Tyson and Alli are coming to Idaho Falls! While they are here we are going to have a birthday bash! I have no idea what it's like NOT to spend my birthday with my sister...and I never want to know :)
- We are updating our bathroom! New tub for me! Hooray!
- New season of The Walking Dead starts on the 16th
- And I can't forget the most important bonus: We will be finding out the gender of our sweet baby on the 28th! Technically on Halloween, I will be exactly 20 weeks...that would totally happen to me right?
I know mine will be :)

Weeks 6-13: Morning sickness 'til about 2:00pm in the afternoon and if I waited too long too eat. I was super tired and didn't want to go anywhere. One day, I waited to long to eat breakfast and I threw up in the the sink, then the toilet, and then the sink downstairs. I learned a good lesson after that day ha ha.
Favorite Snacks: Premium Saltine Crackers, Honey Wheat Pretzels, Fruit Snacks, wheat toast, string cheese, Fresca, Sprite, Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi, baby carrots, and mashed potatoes. There was actually a point where all I wanted was mashed potatoes, because they always seemed to make me feel better. I had them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! I haven't craved super weird things, but I have craved some things I don't usually get. And the things I get ALL the time (Pork Salads) I NEVER get!
Smells: I haven't struggled too bad with smells, but there are some that really make me sooo sick. I can't walk into Cafe Rio or Costa Vida without wanting to puke. The pork smells make me sick. On top of that BBQ sauce and super greasy fried stuff make me sick. So the fair smells didn't help at all.
I am currently 15 weeks and have not felt any morning sickness in the last two. It feels sooo good to have some of your energy back and not feel sick. I don't have much of an appetite, but I feel really good!! One thing that I've noticed is how seriously crazy I feel sometimes. My brain doesn't function like I want it to. I have a bad memory anyway, but I think it's worse. Today at work I waited for 5 minutes for my co-worker because the door was locked. Ya I forgot I had a key. I'm losin' it people!
We have been a week ahead on all of our OB appointments and today I had my 16 week appointment, even though I'm only 15 weeks. I listened to that wonderful heartbeat once again and I couldn't stop smiling. Everything so far seems to be going just fine! I love being pregnant and am so grateful that it finally happened! Apart from feeling pretty ugly, I love the feeling of pregnancy and can't wait for the rest of our journey!

To update you on my pregnancy so far: The past 5 weeks I have felt pretty sick in the mornings, but I've only thrown up twice. The only time I do lose my cookies is when I wait too long to eat. Other than that, I just feel sick. I've also been super duper tired. Sometimes I'll barely last at work for 2 hours. One day I will have some energy and the next I'm dead on my bed asleep ha ha. Work doesn't really help either. I think the desk job has gotten to me, so it's been a little rough now that I'm pregnant. But, I've recently changed my schedule from 9am to 2pm Monday-Friday. I love this MUCH better. In the last 6 weeks I've gotten sick from food twice which was miserable and have had the flu. Hopefully I'm passed getting sick from everything.
Well, that's pretty much it!! I'm tired, feel sick, and don't want to work ha ha! But the good news is, I'm 12 weeks and so excited about it! One of these days, I'll post a little story on our journey to pregnancy. I'll try to make it not too long because it is 3 years worth ha ha. It's just weird to think that I we're finally here and having or very first baby. I'm so freaking out just typing this ha ha!
