A Big Shout Out...

I just wanted to give a big thanks to my Lean Cuisine BBQ Chicken Pizza. Because of you, I was able to get my morning sickness under control at work today.

Remember just yesterday when I said I hadn’t been sick…well that all changed this morning. Actually 1:25am to be exact. I was awaken by THE worst stomach ache. I ate a couple of Wheat Thins…didn’t help much, but it got me to morning. It took me extra long to get ready this morning because I couldn’t stop thinking about how I was going to have to make a run to the toilet. I was able to control it till I got to work and then the morning sickness began.

All I had was an apple and Wheat Thins (can you imagine my excitement when these two things were all I had to eat till lunch because I am pretty sure neither sounded good! After not being able to keep them down, I didn’t really want them anymore)

This is when I decided that even though it was only ten in the morning I was going to have to eat my Lean Cuisine BBQ Chicken Pizza and it did wonders! I don’t feel as sick now, and lets hope I can stay that way the rest of the day.

On a good note…it makes me feel better that I am having these symptoms…it means I am pregnant :)

6 Weeks!

Well, I am officially six weeks! Can I just say...waiting for another OB GYN appt. makes time go by so slow! Plus I am inpatient when it comes to this kind of stuff...Only 13 days till my next appointment!!!

My symptoms have not been too bad this last fact some days I don't have any, and it makes me wonder if I am still pregnant (Yes, I am still asking myself that) I have actually read online that it is normal to wonder that. It scares me that my symptoms come and go...but I haven't had other scary signs like cramping and bleeding, so I am guessing everything is okay :)

My back pain hasn't been as bad this week, but WOW I have been super tired! I did not know how I was going to make it the entire day at work yesterday, but I managed and when I got home I slept from 5pm-8pm and then 9pm-7am. It was heaven and just what I needed. I have also been very dizzy lately...sometimes I find myself seeing two of everything ha ha. (I haven't ran into anymore walls though, so that's good)

I Have seen this pregnancy questionnaire on others blogs and it's something I want to do because it will help me document my pregnancy. so, here gos nothing...

How far along - 6 weeks!

Maternity clothes - Not yet...this won't come for a while. I do feel extremely bloated though and I am actually looking forward to the day when you can actually tell I am pregnant.

Weight gain - I actually think I have lost weight. Not because I am sick, because I am eating much healthier now :)

Stretch marks -Not for a while (Hopefully not at all)

Sleep -Sleep has been good except for when I wake up in the middle of the night with an upset stomach because if I don't have something in there every couple of hours, I begin to feel nausea

Best moment this week - making it another week! Because I found out I was pregnant so early I have been worried about complications and the "M" word.

Worst moment this week - Walking around at Kohl's, feeling hot and like I was going to pass out. My dizziness has been out of control!

Movement - This will also not be for a while...but I am looking forward to that day!

Food I'm loving - I want anything and everything spicy! or anything with LOTS of flavor. I have also been eating A LOT of Cheese...can't get enough of it.

Food I'm hating - Ice Cream and this makes me sad. John and I always do nightly runs on the weekend to Arctic Circle to get ice cream and for the past couple of weekends this hasn't been the case. It doesn't even sound good!

Symptoms - This week it has been dizziness, and a little bit of nausea if I don't eat every couple of hours. I am also super tired!

Gender - Not for about 10 more weeks :) We would be happy with a girl or boy.

What I'm looking forward to - My next ultrasound on April 7th!!!

What I miss - Nothing right now! I am just happy I am pregnant!

Emotions - I've been a little snappy at times...but who isn't :)

P.S.- I think Charlie knows there is a baby growing in my tummy lately because that's where he cuddles up to lately :)

My First Appointment

Yesterday, John and I attended our “early” ultrasound for our itsy bitsy baby that is growing. Most people don’t get an ultrasound until about eight to ten weeks, but the fact that yesterday’s appt was supposed to actually be a post operation appt., my doctor still wanted me to come in to do an ultrasound. Can I just say I love this man! My sister-in-law told me that Dr. Spencer always does early ultrasounds and I am so grateful for that. (Hence the last post, when I have to go buy a pee test because I still didn’t believe I was pregnant)

When I walked into the doctor’s office yesterday I was smiling from ear to ear. Still can’t believe how blessed we are to be going through this next step in our life. We went into the room and Dr. Spencer came in. Before he did the ultrasound, he told us there would be a chance he might not be able to see anything this early, but he did! He found the little black blob (sac) on the screen…you can barely see it, but it’s there!! My timing is exactly right! I am measuring at 4 weeks 6 days :)

I go back in three weeks (April 7th) for my “Real” first appt. Where they will do blood work, and another ultrasound! Dr. Spencer seemed very positive, so we are hoping everything will still go well. Of course I am still worried, but my mom says that doesn’t really ever go away, you always worry about your children :)

I continue to thank my Heavenly Father every day for this opportunity to become a mother. My life is so blessed and the fact that Heavenly Father knows I am ready for mother hood, makes me feel so grateful.

Can’t wait for November :)

Can I Just Say...

Today is an absolute FABULOUS day!

I am so BLESSED.

I've got the world's BEST husband

And the first day of SPRING is almost here!

P.S.- Happy 14th anniversary to my Brother Cory and Sister-in-law, Jenny :)

Back Pain is a "Real Pain"!

So, today my back has been killing me! I am too scared to use a a thermacare heating pad because I feel like that is something I need to ask Dr. Spencer about. During work I couldn't stand the pain anymore...I ran to Target, bought some Tylenol and am hoping it kicks in soon.

another symptom of pregnancy...lets hope this one doesn't last for nine months!!!

On a good note...I am grateful I am feeling these things, it means I'm really PREGNANT and that makes me happy :) Also...I get to go and see Dr. Spencer tomorrow with John for an early ultrasound. He just wants to make sure everything looks okay. A week ago, I never would have imagined I would be saying that!

Life is wonderful!

Let the fun begin!!!

So, yesterday was pretty interesting…It was my first day back to work after my “surgery” was supposed to take place, but got canceled because of our little miracle. I’m sure you can all imagine what people were thinking… I looked extremely happy, wasn’t having any issues walking or getting around and I was doing just fine eating all the foods I wanted to. So, of course people began to be suspicious about if I got surgery or not :) Even though I didn’t want to say anything…I told the important people and well…when others asked how everything went, I would tell them Friday was a great day (because in all reality it was right?!)

Can I just say how I am still in shock that I am actually PREGNANT! John has been saying to me this week, “Can you really believe that we are going to have a baby?” And to be honest, it still seems like it’s not really happening. In fact I had to go and buy a pregnancy test just to make sure :) even though the blood work is A LOT more accurate. I had to be able to see the results myself…So here you go! There are TWO lines! So excited!!!

Some women say they don’t really have any pregnancy symptoms till about six or seven weeks, but I have had some things I would probably classify as “Pregnancy symptoms”.
First off I am extremely tired.

This morning I rolled out of bed (this is a normal routine ha ha) I usually keep my eyes closed till I meet the bathroom, where John has the light on and then I am forced to open them. I am so good at getting to the bathroom with my eyes closed because I have done it for two years now. :) Well today was a little different…I completely lost my balance and smacked my head so hard into the bathroom doorway. John was sitting on the stairs, putting on his shoes and had to do everything in his power not to bust up laughing. It definitely left a mark and now when I think about it, I laugh really hard. I’ve for sure had some clumsy moments these last couple of day (spilling water, dropping a plate of food, running into walls)

Another symptom…these last couple of morning I have had to immediately eat something when I get up in the morning because my stomach is killing me (like growling, groaning, and I just feel sick) Food does not sound good at this time in the morning, but it’s better than feeling sick! And it beats throwing up!

I am very excited for my early ultrasound on Thursday…I wish It would hurry up and get here :)

Was Yesterday a Dream?

So, most of you know I had surgery scheduled on March 11th because I have a bad case of endometriosis and it has been causing infertility. John and I have been trying to have kids for the past five months and it has been unsuccessful. So...we went to the doctors on the first of March and long story was scheduled.

Yesterday, I got up ready to head into surgery. My mom came and picked me up so we could go to Target, pick up my perscription and than head to the hospital for my surgery. John was then going to meet my mom there, so when I got out of surgery they could take me home. My doctor told me there was a very big possibility there could be a cancelation, so to plan on being ready by nine in the morning just in case. As we were driving to Target my phone starts's the hospital. So the thought that starts running through my head is, "oh they must of had a cancelation and want me to come in earlier." Well...that wasn't the case. It was Dr. Spencer (my OB GYN)

Now I can't really recall everything about this phone call because I was in complete shock! First Dr. Spencer said...Is the Randi Huston. I of course said yes. He then asked if I was sitting down and proceeded to tell me I WASN'T going to be getting surgery that day because my blood work came back and I was PREGNANT!!

I started crying, my mom started crying....I told the doctor he had to be kidding! I immediately called John and told him...we were both in a state of shock!

Our prayers had been answered :) My mom and I drove to my brother and sister-in-laws house and surprised them! I wanted to shout it to the world!!! I had always imagined surprising my family in a much different way...But heck! This is a HUGE surprise for everyone!!! Here I was supposed to be going into surgery and the next thing I know, I'm getting told I am PREGNANT!

Later on that night we went to John's Parents and let them know...they were also in shock! But kept saying how much they can't wait to be grandparents! We really tricked everyone when we showed up...they thought I should be home on bed rest from surgery! We gave them a little diaper with two bags of Cadburry "MINI" eggs in it and a little note that said," Welcoming our "MINI" November 2011 ( we had to throw something together in five minutes)

John and I feel extremely blessed right now. I can't explain the emotions I felt and am still feeling today. I got up this moring and thought to myself, "Was yesterday a dream" because it sure does feel like one!

On Thursday, March 17th I have an ultrasound scheduled with my doctor. He wants to make sure everything looks okay. It's an early ultrasound, so all you will really see is a black what i have been told. No heart beat yet either...that will come at the next ultrasound. I am only four weeks we are hoping and praying everything will be healthy and stick. I am so grateful for my family and for my husband.

Four Days and Counting...

My surgery is in four days...pretty nervous about it :( Thursday night we are going over to my brother and sister-in-laws house to eat pizza and then John and Cory are going to give me a blessing.

This isn't like a huge surgery, so most would think I am a baby, but I don't care ha ha I still hate being put under...and the feeling after is even worse! I'm just hoping my mom or John are able to carry me out of the car and up a flight of stairs (this ought to be a sight to see) My room is going to be my permanent locations for three days...guess I better pick out my movie selection before I am bed rested :)

So I'm kinda jumping all over the place in this post, but I forgot to tell everyone where we went to dinner to celebrate our 2nd anniversary....

We went to The Roof! And wow the food was amazing. I can honestly say this is the best it has ever been. They had so many more selections then they usually do and I think I gained 5 lbs just from eating an entire plate of chocolate covered strawberries (don't judge)

After dinner, we went and walked around Temple Square and went across the street to look at the new City Creek area...It will be so much fun when it is all finished.

P.S.- If you go down to Temple Square in the near future, head over to the new Deseret Book! It's awesome!

So recently John and I have been deciding on if we would like to book a cruise vacation...I blogged about it a couple of weeks ago and since then we have been trying to convince each other, but today my husband says to me, "Randi I don't think we should spend our money on a vacation right now. I think we should pay off my car completely and keep focusing on have children."

Nothing makes me more happy than to know my husband and I are on the same page...Vacations for now will have to wait. It's time to focus on HAVING BABIES :) Plus getting out of dept (car payments) will only make it that much better when I have little one's and can stay home with them.

Well, John and I went to the doctor’s on Tuesday and I am scheduled for surgery in a week :)

This is a bitter sweet situation because it would be so much easier to just be able to have children to get rid of my endometriosis and not have to get surgery, but on the upside, we are one more step closer to figuring out what’s going on and one step closer to having children.

I am super nervous about the procedure because the last time I had this done I got extremely sick and ended up back at the hospital…not exactly fun! But I know everything will be just fine :) I’ve got the world’s best husband to take care of me and the best mom ever so I know that I will be very well taken care of. My wonderful sister-in-law has also offered to come over and keep us all company. I love my family :) They are awesome!

P.S. - Today is March 3rd! Happy Anniversary to my wonderful Husband…our celebration on Saturday will be lots of fun!

2 Year Anniversary

John and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary on Thursday…how the time flies. I don’t even know where to begin about how amazing my husband is. My life has been a dream come true and I owe that all to him. Every day I am so thankful for the person he is and the person he makes me. I am looking forward to many many anniversaries to come. I am so grateful to be sealed to this man for all time and eternity!!! Happy 2 years John, I love you!

As for how we will celebrate…

This weekend John is taking me to dinner.

PLACE…unknown (it’s a surprise!) I did give him four ideas that would be very yummy, so I will honestly be happy with wherever we go :)

AFTER DINNER…unknown (that’s a surprise too!) maybe a movie or something

I am also buying a new dress for the occasion… It's so cute! I am wearing it with my cute vintage rider boots, skinny brown belt, and a cute cardigan (not pictured)

Did I mention I still don’t know what I am getting my husband?! John said we weren’t doing gifts, but who really listens ha ha. If I stay with tradition on a gift then a 2nd anniversary means “cotton”…so I’ll have to become creative…in the next two days ha ha.

P.S.- doesn't our blog look so cute! It is in honor of our anniversary! Looks just like our wedding did :)
