Halloween / Baby Update!

First, Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday. Second, I have some news that may seem a little early, but I could not wait any longer. Yesterday my mom and I went up to South Town Mall and went to this place called Fetal Image. I wasn't going to find out what I was having until December! My mom and I wanted to start shopping now, so we went and.....
My mom and I were both in shock. We both thought for sure it was going to be a girl! The Dr. looked at the profile first and said big lips, like a girl. Then he scanned lower and, said 200% boy (did I trick any of you? Well now you know how I felt!), I guess there is no getting around that :) I'm still in shock, I don't know why I thought it was a girl? So I have to say I was a little disappointed, just because of all the cute things I can no longer buy :( I like having boys as the oldest though, so I got that!! I need your help as far as making shopping more fun for a boy? Is it possible?

Love or Lust

We just picked up the Breitling watch line where I work (Goldsmith Co.). The guys I work with are literally foaming at the mouth!! They are obsessed with these watches. It is pretty funny to watch all of them drool on the glass cases, wishing that they had the money to just pull one out and put it on their own wrist. So I decided to go over and make fun of them a little, but then I saw this watch (pic)....beautiful! Yellow gold with diamond ladies Breitling watch. So there I was with the rest of the guys drooling. To bad the price tag on it would force me to sell my first born child! But hey there is always dreaming, so I will :)

Tuesday I had my second check up with my Dr. The Dr.'s I go to are a group, so my first appt. was with a different Dr. then my second. There are about 6 total in the group. I loved my first appt. Dr. he was so great and answered all my questions. My second went a little differently. First, he didn't really do anything. Which maybe you usually don't do much at your second appt. I don't know. Second, he asked if I had any questions. I said that my biggest concern at this point was how sick I have been! I knew he could not give me a answer about when exactly I would feel better, but I have been taking anti-nausea pills and wanted to know more about those. So I explained to him that I first was on a anti-nausea that worked for awhile and then just one day stopped, so at that point they put me on a different pill. The second pill worked ok, but a side effect was headaches, I'm talking no lights are allowed on and no noise headaches! Bad! So, after explaining this to him I asked if there were any other options for me as far as nausea pills, or if I should just try the first one again. He just kind of sat there and looked at me for a min, then said "Well what do you want?", all annoyed. I clearly don't know names of pills, I'm not a druggie! So I said "I don't know? I just don't know my options?" He acted annoyed with me, like I was trying to get something from him that I shouldn't! It was so weird! I thought I had explained myself pretty clear, I just wanted to know what was my best option at this point. Finally he said "Those two are safe for your baby, but I will write you a new prescription. Only take it when you are sick- no other time! And it is going to make you really sleepy." The whole appt. was wierd, so now I guess I'm taking some drug that is not as safe for my baby and totally knocks me out, Great! Not to mention that I asked him a second question that he just totally ignored and never answered. I wish I could have just had my first Dr. :( Sorry for the rant. Have any of you had wierd Dr. visits or am I just being crazy?

All you Mommy's, Help a future Mommy out

Before all the fun shopping for baby begins, I want to know from you with experience what to do. I am a big believer in the fact that for certain things you don't want to skimp on price, it's better to go for quality. I also know there are somethings that you can definitely be frugal with and it's better that way. That brings me to my dilemma, I know nothing about this whole "baby world". So I'm asking for your advice, where do you feel that you made good purchases and would recommend them. On the other hand where do you feel that you may have made a first time mommy mistake? Help me out :) On anything, bottles, diapers, strollers, cribs, clothing, toys, etc. Where should I splurge and where do I make the penny scream? I would really appreciate your help as always. Thanks Love you guys!

One more reason to love Fall time!

Apples! Not just any apple either. My all time favorite apple has got to be Honey crisp. Oh...they are so good!! If you are looking for a apple that is crispy, but still sweet you may want to try one of these yummy treats! I love them because it really does taste like you are eating some sweet (which usually means horrible for you, but it's just a apple!) treat! If you have never had one, go and get yourself some and see what you have been missing out on :) If you have had one, don't you want one now! Do you have a fall time favorite treat? If you do share yours.

What will our baby look like?!

Tony and I are complete opposites! What does this mean for our child?? haha! I guess we can only hope for the best :) Sometimes I wonder how all this genetic stuff works itself out! What is your guess? Dark like Tony or Fair like me?

Guess what!

I'm Pregnant !!
To be honest I still don't believe it! It was a bit of a shock, to say the least, I still feel unprepared for. I'm due the end of April. I have been as sick as a dog for weeks! I'm just starting to get over it. I'm still sick mornings and nights, but the days are getting much better. ( I hope I didn't just jinx it) I hope I'm not the only one that is just not completely thrilled to be having a baby. I guess I am just nervous of how much my life will change! It might be too that I have just been so stinkin sick. I'm sure excitement will set in will right?!

Cookie Update!

I had a couple of my friends come over and we were supposed to decorate Halloween Sugar Cookies like the ones you see in the last post....not exactly! The cookies turned out really great, I used my grandma's recipe which is THE BEST!! The frosting on the other hand....was way to runny and kind of a mess! haha! I still had a great time and it was fun to have my friends little girls over. I love these two little girls! They loved getting there pics taken, their moms, not so much :) I did not even get a pic of the cookies but they weren't that cute :( haha! Oh well. It was so much fun to have people over that I love to help start the Halloween season off right!
