We are painting the nursery tomorrow! After the Susan G. Komen Atlanta Race For the Cure. I am so excited! Though it looks like every one wants more color in the room I still want red. I may paint the walls green and then do red curtains, rug and anything else I can get my hands on. :) Hehehe. I'll have to talk to Tommy too and see what he says but the last time I tried that he told me to do whatever I wanted. Well, I'll let you know how tomorrow goes either tomorrow night or Sunday! Happy early Mother's Day!

Nursery Ideas :)

So I told you that we want to do the nursery in Cat In The Hat, however we have not yet decided the colors or which nursery set we'd like to try for. Here are the two main ideas:

Simple Red and White


Red, Blue, Green, White and Black

I can't wait! I am so ready to paint that Baby's room and begin setting it up, though we don't have much to set up yet! So excited! Which do you think?

Ultrasound Update

So yesterday was my first ultrasound! I was super excited and a little nervous. Excited is kinda obvious, nervous maybe not so some of you so I'll explain. A few years ago I got an IUD/IUC, yes even though I hadn't had children. Everything seemed to be going fine for a while and a little over a year and a half later I started getting these horrible cramps, I'm talking the kind that will take you from standing to the floor crying in a snap. I called the doctor and got an appointment to get everything checked out. They went to check for the string and it wasn't there, but it was very obvious to me it hadn't come out ( that is something I knew I couldn't mistake, especially if it was anything like putting it in ). So they took me to the ultrasound room to see if they could find it that way, they did. It was twisted and upside down in my cervix, it was trying to come out. After a while of trying to figure out the best way to get it out they pulled it out with some tweezer type things ( yes it hurt very badly ). So I didn't really worry about it until I got pregnant, IUDs can cause ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside the uterus). However, I worried for nothing Baby Green is nestled safely in my uterus where its supposed to be. 
I also got to hear the little heart beat! It was precious! And very fast! 165 per min! But the doctor said that its fine the number doesn't count yet as long as its beating! She also said that based on the size I was 6 weeks and 6 days (7 weeks today) which would put my due date at Dec. 21, a week difference from the original Dec. 14 (which would make me 8 weeks toady). I suppose the next time I go in they will tell me. I also got the ultrasound pics, which since Tommy couldn't go I didn't show anyone til he got to see (which was torture, just so you know), now its free game! I wish I knew how to get it on the computer but that is a job for Tommy. :) The worst part about the ultrasound was that I had to have a full bladder so I felt like I was gonna pee all over the place at any second! And I suppose the worst part about the whole visit was the blood work! :( However, I did good! Normally I cry, yes I cry, when I get a shot. Its not that it hurts I just REALLY don't want the shot. I didn't cry yesterday, as a matter of fact I didn't even flinch! I'm so proud of myself! Lol, what a wonderful accomplishment, not! 
Well, I am going to get off of here but if I think of anything else I will def post it!

Its been a while, I know . . .

Sorry its been so long, a lot has gone on! The main thing is that I'm pregnant! So excited! Tommy and I have decided to do the nursery in Cat In The Hat! Can't wait! We are also moving which is wonderful because now Baby will have a better environment to be in! And we actually have room for a nursery! Tomorrow is the first ultrasound! Really cant wait for it!!! But at the same time I'm sad because Tommy has to work and can't go :( I am hoping that my mom will record the heartbeat for him and I will let him see the pics before anyone else! Basically all I have done today is the Baby Registry at Babies R US. There is a ton of stuff on that thing and the really sad part is I don't think I have everything! I'll have my mom help me with it later (reason being she had four so I'm pretty sure she can tell me whats bull and whats essential). Bought my first set of maternity shorts the other day and I LOVE those things! They are so comfortable! I think I will always wear those things! If nothing other than to get my money's worth bc they were kinda expensive (but 45% off!). MS (morning sickness) sucks! Just in case you didn't know! But Preggie Pops (Babies R US) are wonderful, sorta. They seem to help but everything is sour, I'm not much of a sour person. However, as long as they work I will continue to use them! Off to look at more baby stuff! I'll tell you all about the ultrasound tomorrow!
