6 Months Preggo

We have hit the 6 month mark in the pregnancy.. It has been a long road so far! On one hand I can hardly wait for the next 2.5 months to pass and on the other the thought of how quickly it will go completely freaks me out.

The first 4 months were very rocky- I was completely overcome with "morning sickness" Unfortunately for me, it would begin around 2:00pm and last all night long. Mornings were actually my healthy time. It was a long, hot, sick summer. Thankfully the 5th and 6th months have progressed much more happily!
Our little Beanie is healthy and active. He is kicking LOTS.. mostly in the mornings and early afternoons. NOTHING is better then feeling him go nuts in there. It still brings tears to my eyes when it happens. I am completely in love with this little man!
Kasey has taken to wrapping herself around my belly when she lays down with me. Not sure if that she senses the change in my emotions or if she knows that her little brother is in there and she is cuddling him. Either way its super cute!

Along with hitting the final trimester milestone, this month has been big in that I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. For someone that completely craves chocolate and sweets - this has been pure HELL! lol.. Thankfully its only 2.5 more months!

A little History

This is going to be my sad attempt to chronicle the adventure and experience of pregnancy and motherhood. My hopes are that before my little Beanie arrives I will have gotten better at this whole writing adventure and will be able to really convey to my family back east all the intricaties of this little life inside of me.

I will start by giving a little background to our petite family :)

Three years ago I was lucky enough to meet an amazing man who would do anything and be anything to make this little life of mine better. He is my soulmate and I couldn't imagine being with anyone other than him. Lucky Me :)
I came into this relationship with a few strings 1) my first born daughter - Krowbug - the cuddliest and most loving feline you will ever meet and 2) a family back east that I think are the cats pajamas and whose hearts keep me longing to be back east.
Thankfully - said amazing man wasnt deterred by this strings - he quickly adopted my little girl.. and was equally won over by the back east gang.
After deciding to venture into shared living quarters we decided to add to our family in the most challenging way... Kaseyroo- a canine with a mind of her own. Not only is Kasey teaching us about love and living- she is also teaching us about patience and frustration .. and lack of sleep.. and selflessness - it was soon evident that her needs trumped ours. This was a much harder lesson for me to learn then my B.. but we wouldnt change a thing because every day with her is so very rewarding :)

B & I married In July after a stressfilled and fun year of planning. It was an amazing day with wonderful moments and memories.. Even B getting the flu and spending half the day throwing up or sleeping didnt ruin the perfection of the day :)

Within weeks of the wedding we discovered that our family was growing even more :) Our Baby J is due in early march and we couldnt be any happier!

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. ~ Alan Cohen

Life's Lessons

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. — Marilyn Monroe ♥

Lifes Little Suprises

I have learned 4 imporant things over the years...

1) There really is someone out there that is meant for you.. can complete you.. and can make you happier then you ever imagined. Settling should not be an option for anyone.. out there somewhere in the crazy adventures of life you will meet someone that believes in the same things as you, wants the same things as you and most importantly embraces and loves those little things about you that annoyed everyone from your past :)

2) As much as I hate to admit it... the annoying people that tell you holding onto your anger and hate only hurts you, not the other people.. WELL... they are right.. chch.. so annoying to even admit it.. but really.. once you let it all go you truly can start to heal and find so much more joy in what you have.. and those other people.. they didn't even really know or care that you were angry anyway.. they moved on from it a long time ago..

3) The road you thought you were paving, those plans you thought you had all worked out, The life you just knew you were going to lead.... you actually have no say in and chances are its all going to get turned on its head someday when you aren't looking and you are going to be standing there stuttering like a fool saying ..."WTF" .. AND THEN... the best part will come... where all the pieces will fall back into place.. not at all like you were putting them together.. but soooooooo much better tehn you could have thought...

4) and finally....misery really does make you fat....

Sooo, Here I am ... finally shedding the misery .. and thankfully also the fat, and I am going to share my thoughts and this journey with you... Hang on.. its sure to be fantastic!
