18 months apart

Are we crazy?

The first time I knew.
I felt OFF the whole day. I woke up and got ready for the day as I put my jewlery on I couldn't remember which hand my wedding ring went on so I put it on and about 7PM that night I was sitting in a Relief Society meeting and I saw a sisters ring and thats when I realized that my ring is on the wrong hand. Many of you are thinking psh  no big deal.
I came home and told Mike this story I said let me tell you why I think I'm Pregnant. I'm starting to lose my mind! He laughed and said well I guess you will just have to wait and see.

A week later
I've taken about 10 test the last week... Finally last night was the first time I saw a hint of a line!  I have taken 5 more test and they are all really faint. I haven't started yet so I guess we will see. I'm still not 100% I think it's because I don't feel sick. Other than the ocasional tummy ache, but I dont feel pregnant. With Pey I knew the night before even taking a test that I was. It's interesting how this one is already different, isn't it?

I was busy buying Wicked tickets all morning and forgot to eat breakfast. As I walked out the door I took a prenatal  pill on an empty stomach just in case. That's about the time I started feeling nauseous. I met my friends at Sammys for lunch and shakes. I ate a huggin huge shake. As we walked to the car I was having a hard time keeping that shake down. My friends noticed and I lied... I went home and put Pey down for a nap. Then took a test. + Yes it is true PREGNANT!
My thoughts were: well that explains the sickness, but I don't feel pregnant yet like I did with Pey. Then I was like oh crap Mike is going to be home in a half hour and how the crap am I going to tell him in a fun cute way. I remembered a card I had got just for this occasion a while back. I taped a test inside just f

 and inside it says "Get ready for a whole new kind of "download."

I guess this puts my due date August 11th. I have thought about this long and hard. I have always loved being the oldest. Which means yes baby #2 will be as well I know the cut off is Sept. 1st, but I don't care. 

How it went?
Mike came home from a meeting ticked. I talked it out with him and reminded him that old people didn't grow up with technology and to not freak out. (long story) After he vented I said oh hey I got you something. He read it and then opened it I taped my test inside. He said "No Way!" We were both surprised it happened so fast. Pey took a little while, but this one was ready and didn't hesitate.

Hall Baby #2

I have first say to all of you that I have lied to the past couple weeks I'm sorry! I know it is just going to get harder and harder too.
Tonight my Mother-In-Law said " I guess it's time to have another one and laughed knowing that we are "trying"I told her yup we are trying so we will see. Then my parents came over and the card I gave Mike was sitting on the table with the test inside. I don't know if they saw it or not... Oh and Tillie was doing my hair yesterday and I was like is it ok for when I do get pregnant to do this. I'm sure glad she said yes except the hormons could effect the process and color.
I have only been nauseous twice so far and no throwing up! How exciting I know and it's only because I am hungry and didn't eat and took prenatals on an empty stomach.
I had Mike take a picture of me while I still  have abs and am at my skinnest 140, 5 weeks along. I guess here we go again, I've jumped on the fat train. I just keep telling my self you reached your goal and you can do it again, lets just stay under 200 pounds this time. :)
5 Weeks

6 Weeks 12.20.11 I'm feeling more and more nauseous everyday. I forced my self out of bed and down stairs to get some bread. I knew I needed something in my stomach fast. Eating is the last thing I want to do when I am about the vomit. I am really going to try hard to wait to tell everyone till February. I have a plan! I am worried that they are going to figure it out it is hard not to complain about it. I thew a party for Peyton and that night I was done. I needed sleep and my back was KILLING me. I had to just suck it up and smilie, I think they all bought it.

7 Weeks I am so nauseous today, but I feel like I can still function. I have yet to hug some porcelain even though I feel like it all the time. Mike and I are going on a cruise in 2 weeks and I'm really worried about the motion sickness of the boat and the pregnancy colliding to make me dead the whole trip. I looked back on my previous post when I was just 6 weeks with Peyton and how dead I was. I have to say this one seems to be a little easier not by much, but just enough. We went to NYC for our annie and I was about 7 or 8 weeks. It was so sick the whole time hence the reason I'm worried about being on a boat.

8 Weeks We were up late last night and I felt it a lot today. Pey woke up at 7:00 AM and it was really hard getting up to get her. I have a sore throat, runny nose and a lot of nausea. I can't get enough sleep.  Mike brought me breakfast in bed and I was having a really hard time keeping it down. I have started gaging when I brush my teeth. 

10 Weeks. 01.15.12 Well we just got back from a Caribbean cruise and I am so tired! I was so sick the first day on the ship, but other than that it went really well. I don't have any cravings yet. I do like food a lot more with this one and I've learned I get sick on an empty stomach so I am constantly eating something. It has helped so much. I am showing a lot faster and gaining weight fast too which is to be expected and no help from the all you can eat food on the cruise. I hope no one notices my little bump for at least another four weeks, this secret keeping is so much harder than I thought it would be. So far my first 10 weeks with Hall baby #2 have been different than my first 10 with Peyton. I keep thinking maybe this baby will be calm? Wishful thinking, I know. Another part of me thinks well maybe it's a boy I've heard you might get sicker with one sex and not the other. Something is telling me I have another little girl in there, but I've been wrong before so no guesses here.

11 Weeks 01.19.12  One more week till I get to go to the doctor and hear this babies heart beat and it can't come fast enough. I have been a little more nauseas this week. Which makes it harder to hide from family and friends. I have had my first cravings 1. A&W Rootbeer and 2. an Arbys melt.  Strange I know, I ate them and it only enhanced the craving. So far I'm just glad its not Milk. Now that Peyton is 1 we give her whole Milk and that would just fatten me right up. I did try it and it does taste really good, but defiantly irresistible.  Unlike it would have been with Pey. 

12 weeks 01.27.12 or so I thought, we went to the doctor today and he bumped me back a week so I am only 11 weeks....  Which makes my due date August 17. I'm pretty bummed because that means it will be another 3 weeks instead of 2 weeks before we tell anyone. I'm not going to give much detail, but I forgot to give him an important date which makes me think I'm really still 12 weeks (my fault) I'll just have to wait till he does the ultra sound and measures the baby and belly. I told the doctor "I feel like I just had a week of my life taken away from me" I was half joking.  Don't get me wrong I am very grateful to even be pregnant. Thanks for listening to me vent. I weigh 144 at the doctors which means to stay under my goal I can only gain 46 more pounds he he he.  On the other hand we got to her the baby's heart beat today! Which is always so special and it makes everything more real. It was fast and strong. I think Mike and I are still in a kind of in shocked mode since it happened so fast.  They did my blood work and boy do I hate that. I think the needles and the IVs are one of the worst parts of pregnancy. Mike is always wonderful at supporting me and coming with me. Pey had her own appointment because she is sick. There you have it. Oh and just because I am me and very stubborn person I'm not moving my appoint to find out the sex :)

Today 01.31.12  I had a very gross puking bathroom experience happen to me and that is all I'm going to say about that. Ask me and I'll tell you all about it. This kid is going to be the death of me. :)
