Oh My....'

I can't believe its been so long since I wrote here. Between life and being a full time student and mom, I guess I just kinda forgot. Sigh, life goes on! But here I am.
Still a full-time mommy =) and still a full time student...however, I have switched to all online classes. Going on campus for classes isn't really an option anytime soon because....
We are having a baby!!!!!! 

I am ten weeks today and due Friday November 28, 2014! Black Friday! LOL No shopping for me this year!!! After two miscarriages I never thought we would be here again. In fact we were actually preventing in the form of the pill. The week after I found out I had a previously scheduled appointment with my OB/GYN to discuss scar tissue from my c-section and more long term birth control. Of course that appointment changed to discussing how my hcg levels were doing (fantastic!!!!!) and how things there progressing and when to schedule an ultrasound. 
This whole thing has been very amazing. I went from extreme anger to embracing this baby. I am thankful everyday for this miracle and can't wait to meet him or her. I have had 3 ultrasounds and the one i included was at 8w2d. 
Thus far this pregnancy has been very different than when I was pregnant for Hayley. With her I didn't have any morning sickness til I was 12 weeks and then I threw up for 3 months and was nauseous the final three. It was rough!!! This time, I have had a lot of nausea with no vomiting, extreme exhaustion, and raging emotions. Maybe its a boy... ;) 
I'm hoping to start blogging more. I want to remember these days forever. And I want to be able to show my kids some day how life was when they were growing up!!!
So I'll be back again soon! Probably later since I'm 10 weeks today and I think I want to do a weekly post...

Still hanging around..

Just not posting much (okay not at all, sorry!) and its been pretty chaotic for the last almost 7 months. As of last May I have been taking classes. Summer semester wasn't too bad but this fall has got me running in circles.
I am currently taking 3 classes and am on campus 4 days a week. 2 of those days I am there for about 12 hours. Its exhausting and I am looking forward to my long days ending next week with the end of the first 7 weeks. After that I am only doing 2 classes until winter semester and then all craziness breaks lose.
I am super excited about the next semester despite all the craziness because I am finally getting into the kitchen. Oh I guess I should add that I am going for my associates in Culinary Management with the possibility of going for my bachelors. Sooo yeah, thats whats been going on!
On the trying to conceive front there is nothing going on. My periods are kinda of wacky at the moment but they are getting better so I know that things are getting better. Also, as a result of having food poisoning this past weekend I am down about ten pounds.
Also my princess is now 11 years old! And in middle school...But its almost 2 am and I have to be up in 5 hours. So I will try and make it back to update more about Hayley soon!!

Doing okay...

On Wednesday afternoon I had one last hcg check before they took me back for my d&c. I needed that done for my own peace of mind. As it turns out we were making the right choice as my hcg level had already began to drop in 2 short days. In fact it dropped over 200 points.
So we went ahead and did the procedure and the dr said he didnt remove much. so there is still a slight concern of an ectopic pregnancy so I have to go Friday morning for more blood work to make sure my level is still dropping and i will see the dr in the afternoon.
Physically as of now I am feeling okay. I have taken some tylenol for some mild cramping and tmi but as of almost 3 am I am not really bleeding anymore.
I have lots of questions for the dr and hope i can get some answers soon.
I am off to bed now but wanted to post a quick update.
Oh and side note today (4/11) would have been my dads 70th birthday. I still miss him like crazy but take comfort in the knowledge (in my eyes) he was there to greet our baby.
I promiseto post again soon...
