Hurray We're Prego!!!

What?!? So, I thought I'd jump on the baby bandwagon! Here I am, and now Claire will have a sweet 2nd cousin (??) to play with! I know, I am SO worse than Veronica at keeping secrets...because I'm only 5 weeks along! I totally thought I was 6, then nope, someone can't count! Anyway, our little thang is due May 2nd! We were going to wait for a lot longer to tell people, but the whole problem was that Saren was over at our house when I took the pregnancy test (almost as a joke!), and I was freaking out. So, she was like, "What, what's going on?". So, of course I had to tell her. Then, once she knew, I knew it wouldn't stay a secret for very long. So instead of everyone finding out from her, we decided we should just open our big fat mouths and tell everyone!! Whatever, it's so fun!

I feel awesome. I feel like I have more energy than I've had in a long time. What is that about?! Probably just so freakin excited. I really hope I don't feel sick; but my mom was only sick with one of hers, so hopefully I have her genes!! I really wanted to be married for 2 years before we had a baby, but it's ONE WEEK before our two year anniversary--that can totally count, right?!?! I'm counting it anyway.

My mom, who I was most nervous about tellin, was the MOST excited of all (except for maybe Saren)!! She is so happy. I haven't seen her this happy in so long. So, that is awesome news.

Other than that, my job is going great. We start actually doing therapy after Labor Day. That will be way better than all the paperwork that I've been having to do. But, then I have to do lesson plans and homework and all that crap. Not really sure what's going to happen at the end of the year when I have the baby, because school doesn't get out until May 29...but looks like they're just going to have to be ok without me (which I'm sure won't be a problem!!).

I am really excited/nervous to be a freaking mom, I can't believe it. Eric is really excited, but I think he's a little bit in denial too!:) Anyone wanna place some bets on the gender??

Here's us being retarted on the camera as we talk about it.

Are you freakin kidding me! I was screaming my dang head off. The sick thing is, when Brock figured out why I was screaming he said "oh ya I already know". What a loser for not telling me. I can't even tell you how excited I am. My little heart is just racing. What? Were we seriously just talking about how to get prego on Aug 17th and you were prego the whole time. Did you know? You brat! If you did how sad that I went on for hours about it! You must of thought that I was crazy! Well I am but that's another story! I have to talk to you. I'm so going to call you but I know you are at work right now. So, I'll have to control myself for a while. OH MAN!! YEA!!!

Bree :--) said...

Thank you, thank you everyone!! You guys are all SO awesome!!!

Vero--actually I totally was prego, but I swear I had NO freakin idea. I hadn't even missed my period yet! I know, when I found out, I was cracking up...thinking you were going to think I was so crazy! haha. I can't believe Brock didn't tell you--boys, I swear! But, the thing is, now you have to show me when we come for chelsea's wedding how to make all that fun stuff. The problem is I'm like not crafty at all, is this stuff that even I could do?! HELP! I guess I could've written this whole book on your blog, but whatev. Call me soon! I get out of work and home by like 5.

HOORAY! I am sooooo excited! I couldn't call cause my cell phone reception sucks at our new house and I didn't have the internet (or a new land line). I am back in the game, and we can't wait!!! I can't wait to see you to talk in person!!! BTW, I am glad Eric figured out how it happened ;)

CresceNet said...

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso. (If he will be possible add the CresceNet(www.provedorcrescenet.com) in your blogroll I thankful, bye friend).

-KJ said...

Ask Eric what it says, then erase the comment! WEIRDO! I wish I knew Spanish!

Eliza said...

It is Portuguese. Curtis says he wants you to put a link to his site on your blog so he can sell/advertise an internet service provider.
