Updates, Updates, Updates... And AMAZING News!!

Hey Dreamers! It's been forever since I've actually posted. I really need to catch you all up on the happenings here in the land of Baby Dreams. Where to start? Hmmm....

Well, we'll start with how H*attie left. She lived here as you all know. We were trying to help her out, but you can only help someone as much as they wish to helped plus when they are ungrateful for every last ounce of help you give them it gets old really fast. Any way, in the last month that she was here which was clear back in Sept./Oct. she got herself a job. DH and I were really proud of her for doing so, but having an extra mouth to feed whom wasn't pulling her weight around here and was causing nothing but drama was taking it's toll on us. The beginning of Oct. rolled around and she got fired from her job after only being there for a month. We told her that she was going to have to take her last check and help out around here. She did, but come a week after the first she was staying with DH's older sister and causing problems between us and them. I had had enough of her crap, so finally I told her she could get out through text message that I didn't need the drama. Of course that started a whole other mess of problems with SIL & BIL being jerks like always. Needless to say, she's gone and out of our hair but in the process DH ended up wiping his hands of his sisters and wants nothing more to do with them.

With the drama that H*attie brought on and the issues that were already going on in my marriage with DH talking to and texting other girls prior to this, my marriage took a weird turn. We fought alot about the unfaithfulness, but our focus turned to fighting about H*attie and the crap that was being stirred up there. I tried hard to focus on fixing things, but there was a part of me that just wanted to throw in the towel and be done with it all. However, I stayed and I pushed on looking for sunshine in a broken relationship through the gray skies. Finally, toward the end of Oct. DH and I were in a better place, and we were able to communicate with one another again without yelling or in my case crying. Presently our relationship is the best that it has been in a long time. A. VERY. LONG. TIME.

Updates on me.... I just finished my first quarter of college towards my Associate's degree in Medical Administration. It was a long tough 11wks, but I'm proud to say I survive it. That is one of the reasons that I haven't been updating like I used to. I so very little time for myself that the last thing I want to do is spend it on the computer for a few moments more to update. I really need to though even if it's just a few lines here and there, b/c then I won't play catch up so much. I start back on Jan. 3rd, and while I'm looking forward to it... I'm dreading it a little too, b/c I know this coming quarter will be alot tougher than the last.

Let's see... updates on the Monster... he's getting so big and he's so rotten. Last weekend we went to the local mall so he could sit on Santa's lap when he was done he got interviewed by a staff member of a local newspaper so that he could tell them what he (Stinky the Garbage Truck), Mommy (watch the video), and Daddy (nothing, b/c that's what Daddy said) wanted for Christmas. They cut a bunch of the actual footage off, but here is what is left:

If you couldn't tell from the video what my Christmas wish is from what *B* said, here's a hint:

My LMP was the last one that I recorded on here which was 10/27/10. My EDD is 8/3/11. I'm a little over 8wks based on my LMP. My first ultrasound is later today. I'll post about how that goes in my next post, and about how I told DH which was really cute. But for now, I'm off to bed. G'nite ya'll and babydust or belly rubs all around.


  1. Congratulations!! I was a little worried you hadn't updated in so long. So this is great news :) Can't wait for scan results!

  2. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was missing your posts, but boy did you come back with a doozy! I am so happy to read about the positive developments in your life, especially that last one. WOW!!!!! Congrats!

  3. Congratulations! I wish you all the best!! Your little one is so stinking cute!

  4. Congrats!! Do you chart at all because your pregnancy tests make me feel like you ovulate late - and if that's true don't be surprised if you're a week or two behind what your LMP says. I'm due August 4th, today I'm 7w1d (and actually getting an ultrasound too later today) and this is based on ovulation. I got a positive 10 dpo but that was November 21st so that's why I ask if you ovulate later then normal :) I just don't want you to think things are over before they've begun!

    Best wishes today!! So exciting! I know how you felt, all I wanted for Christmas was a BFP as well.

  5. Congratulations! I think that your due date might be a little different though. In 2003, my lmp was 10/28/03 and I was due 8/3/04 and I tested positive I think on 11/27...11/28 with very dark lines (singleton). So don't be surprised if your due date isn't a little later in August...but regardless it's such wonderful wonderful news.

  6. WOOOHOOOO!!! <- that goes for all accounts, but especially the last bit of news.

    Hooray that H finally left!
    Hooray that your marriage is on the mend!
    HOORAY that you are pregnant! That is such wonderful news!


  7. Thank you for all the well wishes. I'll have another post up tomorrow. I'm super exhausted from the long day, but as some of you mentioned about a later EDD... you're right. I ovulated later, and my EDD is later in August now. The Dr. said after today's u/s that I'm only 5-6wks pregnant. But there is definitely a baby in there. :)

  8. What an awesome Christmas surprise! Congratulations!!
