A baby.....

So here's the story for those who want to know....

About 3 weeks ago, I was having lunch with my cousin Laura and told her how I felt like my stomach was growing, if you've never been pregnant, you won't know what I'm talking about, and you'll probably think I'm nuts like my husband.  I said, I'm almost positive I'm pregnant, we were getting ready to go to Lagoon, and I decided to wait and take a pregnancy test.  Thinking it's nothing, there's NO way I am pregnant.  I'm not ready for a baby (thankfully you have 9 months to prepare).

A few days later, I took a test, it was of course, I took another one, it was positive too.  I screamed, called Tom, and he was taken about, why was I crying. My hope was that Elliana would at least be sleeping consistently through the night.  Tom is working with an OBGYN right now for his rotations, they take our insurance so we scheduled an appointment.  Sure enough, there's a baby.  I'm 8 weeks, so still really early, and the only reason I'm sharing so early is because a few people have had to know, because I'm SO SO SO sick!

Morning sickness, night sickness, day name it, I have it.  I've lost 13 lbs, and just feel SICK all the time.  I have a really hard time getting up and going, and I spend a lot of time laying down.  Zofran is my new best friend, and I take it religiously every 6 hours (that's an anti-nausea medication).  It helped a LOT at first, now it just takes the edge off.  Elliana is excited kind of, but yesterday we had another Dr. appointment and I told Elliana we were going to see the baby and she responded "no thanks Mom, I don't want the baby".  At least she was polite?!?!  I think she'll be a great big sister, and I'm hoping life will get a LOT better in the next few weeks if I can stop being sick.

I've had lots of people ask if I felt like this with Elliana, and the answer is no.  I had a few sick days where I didn't feel well, but it was more towards the end.  With her I was just really tired....could sleep all the time.  This time, I'm not super tired (like more than usual), just sick.

So, there you have it.  Baby Duncan 2 is on the way.  My new due date I was informed last night by my husband is April 30.  I do plan on having a VBac and my Dr. is VERY supportive of that, which is great, because not everyone here in Utah is.

Elliana has something to say...

Elliana has something to the videos to see what it is.  We couldn't pick which video was cuter, and I can't get them to turn the right way.  I'll post the story later.

Can't believe it, but my baby started Preschool!  My cousins wife is teaching preschool at her house in Provo and Elliana gets to go!  She LOVES Preschool and asks every morning if she can go to school.  I have a few pictures I'll share, but first a cute little story.  On her first day (which was Tuesday) they were finger painting another girl in the class named McKall was finger painting first, Elliana was freaking out.  So Laura (teacher) thinking Elli was upset it wasn't her turn said, it's okay Elliana you can go next.  Elliana freaked out more, yelling, "No, I don't want to pain, I don't want to get messy").  Sounds just like Elliana!

 Yes, she did pick out her awesome princess backpack ALL by herself!
 So excited to go to school!  Love her little hammy grin.

Hope you all enjoyed the pictures of my little girl all growing up!  Hopefully later today I'll get a chance to blog about Lagoon!
