Baby Gray the story continues...

I scheduled an appointment to see a baby doctor A.S.A.P. and wouldn't you know it the soonest they had was Christmas Eve! Scott had the day off and I got the day off and we headed to the Dr. I knew I was pregnant. Scott still had his doubts in the home pregnancy tests and I knew that he wouldn't be convinced until he heard the Doctor declare it.Since I had no idea how far along I was they wanted to do an ultrasound which sounded just fine to us! We walked down the hall and waited for what felt like eternity for the doctor to come in. They did the ultrasound and sure enough there was a little blob on the screen! The doctor got excited and turned to us and said there's your little peanut! Merry Christmas! We were able to see the little heartbeat and found out that I was 6weeks along!! The doctor left the room and Scott embraced me and we both cried tears of joy and excitement!!
We couldn't wait to share the good news with our parents! We called my parents and made them put the phone on speaker so we could tell both of them at the same time! They were so excited! Scott and I hurried home to his parents house to tell them.Of course they weren't home and I was jumping up and down and running around the house so full of joy and excitement!! After about ten minutes I couldn't take it any longer and had to know where they were! They were out running errands! But they assured me they would be home soon! The week before the appointment I had done a little shopping and I got a baby t-shirt that said my Grandpa is the best, this was for Old Man to open :) I also had found a picture frame that Said "I love my Grandma" I put a picture of the ultrasound in this frame for Suzanne. I had the presents wrapped and put on the couch and in Old Mans chair.
When they finally got home I insisted that they open them early Christmas I said! They COULDN'T WAIT! They opened them! Both of their mouths fell open they were shocked, they almost didn't believe me until they saw the tears in Scott's eyes. Then we all hugged and cried and hugged some more. :)

Towards the beginning of December I starting feeling odd. Different if you will. Not a bad different, not a good different...just different. A different I couldn't really put my finger on. I was unusually emotional.(crying for hours wen I found out I couldn't go home for Christmas!)   I didn't want anything to do with sugar. The sweet processed wonderful kind that I usually eat several pounds of on a daily basis.

I told Scott that something was "off". He didn't read much into me telling him something was weird so I figured why should I...Until this strange weird new different keep going. I was getting so tired by the end of the day and people who usually didn't bother me where putting me on edge.  

Early one Saturday morning (December 16th to be exact) it dawned on me. When was the last time that I had had my period? I didn't know? I'm horrible at keeping track of these things! I really should get better!! Scott and Shuga lay peacefully beside me, both snoring away. As quietly as I could I slipped out of bed and to the bathroom where I dug through my drawers to find a pregnancy test. I found one! How old? Who knew?! But it was a pregnancy test and I was shaking  with excitement as I tore the foil wrapper. 
 I laid it on the counter and waited...and waited... Not the full advised 3 minuets but let me tell you I did wait and it felt like an eternity! Finally I couldn't take it any longer and I peeked! 


I couldn't believe my eyes! I jumped  up and down did my happy dance! I dug through my drawers in the bathroom searching for a second test one would simply not do! I couldn't find one! Shuga had woken up by this point, so I threw some clothes on told her the good news and we grabbed my purse and slipped out the door to run to Wal-Mart! The second test confirmed that I was indeed pregnant. Now to let Scott in on the good news!  

I put the tests in a zip lock bag...they do have pee on them after all. I put the zip lock in this giant mug that I had bought and been saving for just the occasion. It could fit a small child inside! It's huge and on the front says "SUPER DAD". I placed it in a Christmas bag and told Scott after breakfast that I needed him upstairs! I was about to burst keeping this secret in! I presented him with the gift. I may or may not be known for not liking to wait to open presents so when I told him to open the gift he kindly refused and told me we needed to wait for Christmas. I promised him he couldn't wait to open this one! After much pleading and begging and then demanding that he open it he finally consented and pulled the mug out. He gave me a puzzled face and didn't say anything. "look inside" I instructed. He did and pulled out the zip lock. "what the? NO, your kidding this is a joke right?!" I am a trickster and have played the oops I'm pregnant card before. He didn't believe me! I spent the next 5 to 10 minuets promising on shuga's life that it wasn't a joke and that I was indeed caring his child. He finally got that I was being serious and wrapped me in a huge hug! 


December 2012

Oh December! The most that I most look forward to! With family and Christmas and all kinds of festivities!!

We were busy busy busy in December. 

Scott working with his Dad at Gateway construction. Scott had been studying for the GMAT (big test to get into MBA programs) He took the GMAT and did really well! We just had to wait to see if it was good enough to get into PLU (Pacific Lutheran University) a school in Tacoma that offers the MBA programs that he's really been wanting to get into! This whole process required lots of pray, fasting, hardwork and study from my dear hubby who gets up before the sun. about 4:30 AM and works a full day! Upon returning home around 2PM or later he would then set right to work studying online out of books and doing lots and lots of practice tests. How thankful I am for a husband with drive,passion and determination! What an amazing man I have!!

I've still been working at Sillito Chiropractic. It's stressful and makes for very long days but it's still a blessing to have steady work! And to be able to help pay the bills. Towards the beginning of December I started feeling "different". But that is a whole different story my friends.December had me busy shopping, cooking, crafting and planning away. I had been planing the whole year for our Christmas trip to Wyoming!! Due to my wonderful coworker refusing to cover for me I was unable to go and it truly broke my heart! I lay in bed the night I found out and cried and cried! So I had to distract myself so I wouldn't been too homesick. Homesick for my Momma and Daddy, my girlfriends, home cooking, SNOW, my siblings, my little niece! There is so so much that I miss about Wyoming!! Anywho we made it through with lots of food and facetime with my family! We also found out Christmas Eve that I was pregnant and that really helped ease the homesickness!!!!

It's not Christmas without Charlie Brown!!
