This is our little bean at 6 weeks :) Our first photoshoot! What a day this was...

No one knew we were "pregnant", and I wasn't even convinced. The whole time in my mind I was thinking, oh here we go again.
I found out I was pregnant on March 21. I had decided that I was going to do a sweet surprise for Colby the next time I found out I was pregnant..but nope, didn't go as planned. I was so shocked, scared, passing out that I just walked into the bedroom where he was getting dressed to go eat for Jonathan's birthday dinner and stood there like an idiot with it in my hand--- He said it's positive isn't it? And all I said was yep!

That wasn't the first thing on my "What I'm gonna do when I'm pregnant" list that didn't go as planned. This whole first trimester has been a doozy.

First of all-- These Heparin shots..heparin shots....As soon as I called Dr Isaacs office with a positive HPT, Catherine told me she would go ahead and call in my medicine, which consisted of: Heparin injections 2 times daily, Folgard tablet 2 times daily, Aspirin 1 time daily, progesterone until 12 weeks, prenatal vitamins. She said are you sure you can give the shot to yourself? I'm like "oh yeah! I'm a nurse! I got this!"
Well..i did NOT have this....I opened the bag and completely melted down. Long story short-- after about 20 minutes, 3 pieces of ice to numb my stomach, a very frustrated husband, and 4 dogs in the kitchen as our cheerleaders- Colby was finally able to convince me to let him give me the shot. It wasn't so bad, but very scary. 
I will do them every day until she's here- now I can do them going down the road while driving. It's amazing the things you get used to. 

Around week 7,  I quickly learned the phrase "morning sickness" was a joke. I had all day sickness. I threw up from the time I woke up, until the time I went to bed. I  lost 15 lbs . I lived on grapes, coke, canned peaches, and crackers until about week 13.

                                                                  Colby snuck this picture one morning before work, my little man took care of his momma when she was sick :) 




We found out she was a "Paisley Jane" @ 15 weeks :)
 She was very uncooperative during the scan, it took about 30 minutes to get her still enough to see. It was a big shocker, Colby and I were both convinced she was a little boy...Sorry, sweetie!
The rest of the pregnancy so far, has been relatively uneventful. She's growing like she should, and wiggling pretty much 24:7. 

Colby and I close on our new house in Decatur on July 29th!! Whoo hooo!!! 

Please continue to keep Me, Colby, and Paisley in your prayers during the remainder of my pregnancy! We are in awe of the blessings we've been given.... 6 months ago, I would have never believed I'd feel miss priss moving around in there :) The Lord has blessed us so much.
