Bed Rest to No Bed Rest

Today has been an absolute roller coaster. It all started at 8:15am,
I went for baby boys 20 week check up. Now, let me give you a little
back history first. I see my normal OB and then I also see a high risk
doctor. Well, my high risk doctor has had me off work for about
a month and a half, I just went back to work last Monday, but
on extended circumstances.

So this morning, I start telling my doctor about this pain that I have
down in my girl area's, but only on the left side, weird huh? I 
thought so too. High risk doctor told me my potassium was low,
asked my normal doc this morning, he basically told me High Risk
doctor was a moron, that more than likely when I had the cerclage 
done, he hit a nerve. Awesome right? And there is nothing I can 
do about it until 35 weeks when its time for the cerclage to come

He then proceeds to tell me that I need to be resting and not doing
much, I then proceed to tell him that I am back to work. He basically
goes all crazy again because my other doctor sent me back to work
without consulting with him first. Immediately takes me back out 
of work. And then tells me have a nice day, see you in two weeks.

Sure, I left like okay. But 20 minutes after I got home, panic set in.
Hubs was busy doing training so I couldn't talk to him right away.
Everyone in my family is obviously biased, so that was no help.
I know my body and what I can and can't handle, I only work
four hours a day right now and they give me a chair. I freaked
out because well, yeah hubs is making good money, but I still
need to be making something too.

I eventually got to talk to hubs, he told me to do what I feel is 
right for baby and me, as far as continuing to work. I 
eventually called my doctor back, talked to him some more.
He agreed with certain restrictions, that my job is okay with,
thank goodness, I can continue to work only if I am in my 
chair at almost all times...

So, that was my day.


With that being said, I officially move in 2 days & I will have no
internet or cable until further notice. Unless I can figure out
how to steal the internet from my phone, which I know is possible.
Just have to figure out how.

And, one more thing? Does anyone sell scentsy or any other
work from home type of businesses. I'm trying to come
up with something I can do IF I get taken off work all
together again or just to add some more cash flow, 
since I'm not making quite half of what I normally make.
Let me know :)

Not such a Monday Funday

So today, I woke up at 7am. Not sure why exactly and quite frankly
I don't appreciate it. I am tired all the time, so waking up that
early for no real reason is just annoying. I supposed I have a 
million things I could be doing, like packing for 1 or getting 
my baby shower invites started, but I did nothing.

I feel so crappy today. Maybe because it has been raining nonstop
here in good ol' Ohio, or maybe its the fact that I miss my husband.
I feel like I shouldn't be doing things without him. Obviously, I need
to get over that because well, I have a year of him being gone. I 
can't put off doing things until he gets home in about a year from now..

So with that being said, I will go do something productive, like actually
make myself presentable for dinner at my father-in-laws tonight.

1 Monday down....a whole bunch more to go!!

Oh, and be sure to leave comments if your new followers from

All things baby

We recently found out that we are having a little baby BOY! As
much as I was really hoping for a little girl, I am beyond excited.
I just can't wait for little baby to get here. Today, I am 19 weeks.
 I am almost half way done with being pregnant. I feel like
 I just found out yesterday that I was pregnant
 and here we are, at the almost half way point. It's crazy!

With that being said, we are having a really hard time coming
to a liking of baby names. Hubs is stuck on having a Jr., but
 let me tell you, it just isn't happening. I can only handle one
 hubs everyday, not two. So, here is
 my question, what are your favorite baby
boy names and why?

We are also working on planning my baby shower. I know I'm
not supposed to be planning my own shower, which technically I'm not,
 I'm just making sure things go as I hope for them to. So, I am letting
 myself have a little more input than I probably should, lol. Which
 leads me to my next question, what are your favorite baby
 shower games  to play? And also, what kind of prizes do you like
 to receive, that are inexpensive..Every time I go to showers,
I seem to get pointless game gifts, if that makes any sense.

I leave you with some fun facts about baby this week :)

your baby's the size of a mango!
At about 6.0 inches long and weighing in at about 8.5 ounces, she's getting there!

The Dreaded D Word Has Begun

So I have been MIA for a while now, my apologies. I have had good reason though, I was spending as much quality time with my husband as I could because our very first deployment as officially started. He actually got to come home a couple days sooner than planned from his AT because they all like him and they really knew I was struggling with things at home with the baby. So, God bless them for giving me a few more days with my husband, there are no words to express how grateful I am. But now he is gone, again. The reality of it hasn't sunk in much because I am used to him being gone for all sorts of training. It hasn't really hit me yet that this time is different.

I will leave you with some photos from babe's Call to Duty Ceremony. I cried my eyes out the entire time...

Our Little Family

Yes, they sang "I'm leaving, on a jet plane". I cried hysterically..

This is just too funny, I look so disgusted
