Pregnancy problems.

Pregnancy problems are problems that only pregnant people have. Here are some of mine:
Excessive Tiredness
Feeling crazy
Temperature changes

Now, let me tell you, I never had these problems with my first pregnancy, which was a boy. He is now 7 years old. I am hoping that this one is a girl, since the symptoms are so different. But, been told maybe twins. My son says "I hope there is two in there". And twins apparently run on my biological dads side of the family. And I just found out that my maternal grandmothers father had twins in his family. Aye. But, hey, if its twins, I hope they are one of each gender. Afraid I may mistake them!

I go to the doctor on Feb 9, and I'll get an ultrasound and hear the heartbeat. I cannot wait. I am gonna make them double, and triple check, to make sure there's only one, or if there is two in there.

Anyways, its 1am. I am gonna go lay down. My husbands off for three days, tomorrow is the last day off for about 4 days, and I am gonna get all the rest I can get tomorrow.

Night :)

Don't call it a comeback | Back to basics.

I've been MIA here on my blog for a bit, and I know I said I was going to try to post more often, but in reality, I kinda don't know what to write about anymore! I've kinda stopped with the reviews for now because I was so busy, that I wasn't keeping up. And honestly, I don't feel my readership is what I want it to be, and I don't wanna be one of those bloggers who only do reviews and giveaways. Thats not what I wanted when I started this blog! I started this blog to vent, to have my voice heard, to find other people like ME. So, I am taking it back to basics. No reviews for a while. I want to get you all pulled back into me. I will be the first to say content has not been the best, and I apologize. I got so wrapped up in the hype of giveaways and getting more readers. So, here I am.

One week ago today I found out I am pregnant. I am now 6 weeks pregnant! I am due September 9, 2012, I still have a long way to go. I never thought it would be easy for me to get pregnant after depo, but it only took 5 months of practice, and one month of actually trying LOL. So, this kinda puts a damp into my working out, and goals to loose weight, but I am working out more now than I have before, I want to stay healthy for the baby, and I don't want any complications - high blood pressure or diabetes or anything. I do not want to be on any kind of bed rest, I would not be able to handle that.  So, I am working out, eating healthier - with the occasional splurge on pizza or something. No soda (except today I had one 20oz of cherry Pepsi). I've been drinking water, and Gatorade, and ginger ale. Not too much nausea, but a lot of heart burn, something I didn't have with my first one over 7 years ago!

Another thing I want to address is Mamavation. While most of those ladies are great, and have commented in the past, I felt like its a popularity contest. I felt like only the popular mommies got attention and tons of views/comments. I didn't feel like I had the support I needed, and thus I stopped writing blog posts for it. I tried joining convos on Twitter with the hashtag, and still no replies, so I gave up. Why put my self in a situation where I am not wanted? That's how I felt. I couldn't even tell you when the last Mamavation post was -- actually, after looking, it was August 29, 2011.  Yup. So, I've thought about it. I think I will try Mamavation again, see how the support goes, and see what happens, and go from there. I will make this my first Mamavation Monday post - even though its on a Saturday night. I've worked out 2 times this week, and plan on working out at least 30 mins every other day. And I workout using Just Dance 2 for Wii, and EA Sports Active for PS3 (every now and then for that last one).

And lastly, my goals for this blog for 2012. To help document my pregnancy, I may post pics, not sure yet. On Feb 9 I have my first ultrasound, so I will post a pic of that! I cannot wait to see my baby! My son and husband is excited, but I think my husband is still kinda shocked haha.  I have already created a birth plan (I know, I am ahead of myself lol), and have been refreshing my memory on what happens later on. I have time to kill, so might as well.  My son has been watching A Baby Story on TLC with me, he cannot wait, but he doesn't understand 9 months, so this should be interesting, he also keeps saying "Mommy, I hope there's two in there" - and points to my belly! I am like are you kidding me?! If there's twins, I don't even know what I would do. I would loose my mind.

Alright, enough of my blabbing. I am gonna get off here and finish cleaning the living room and then work out a bit.
