Just a Hello

Well, there have been some changes since Matt has left. On May 26th, I took a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. We were on the phone when I was able to tell him if he was going to be a daddy or not. The next day I went to the Hospital and had a blood test to confirm it, and yes, I am offically pregnant. I have been experience HORRIBLE morning sickness and I've been extremely dizzy. But so far, I've only thrown up once. Thank goodness. I had my "orentation" on June 10th, to get me into their Maternity system and I was talking with the OB/GYN Nurse and she said everything that I'm experiencing is normal. Some women just have a hard time with dealing and I guess I'm one of them. My first official doctor's appointment is July 7th. I will actually meet my Doctor face to face and be told exactly how far along I am. The Nurse estimated me to be about 6 weeks. Well acutally, if I follow that, today, I am now 7 weeks. Matt and I are very excited but I am also a little scared. I have NO idea what to expect and/or if anything I am experience is normal. I've been calling family already asking what they experienced and if it's normal. I have been reading two different books and they are pretty educational but still doesn't answer all my questions all the time. Matt and I will find out what the sex is when that time comes but as of this moment, he is convinced it's a girl. I honestly don't know and I really don't care as long as I am healthy and the baby is healthy. I have an appointment with a nutritionist on the 24th of this month to help me with my nutritional needs and pretty much educate me cause I have NO idea. I've never really known better when it comes to food and what is healthy or not. Obviously somethings are obvious but others, not so much to me.
I have quit my job and that is just a long story in its self and really don't want to get into it at the moment. So, my goal now that I am a housewife is to do some deep cleaning, stay healthy and to train my two monsters of dogs. LOL. No they have been really good actually. They don't jump on me anymore and they know that there is something different and don't crawl all over me like they use to. They are still annoying in their own little ways but they are my dogs, what can you expect. =)
We are very excited but worried at the same time. This was a planned pregnancy but it still kinda took me by surprise. I don't know why but I honestly don't think it has completely set in yet. I will be keeping everyone up to date the best I can and I hope everyone is doing well. I sure miss everyone and unfortunately, I will not be able to come home this summer or for Christmas so that we can save some money and get some other bills paid off. We love you all very much and can't wait to hear from you all!

With lots of love!!
