that aint no etch a sketch

So, I was known for the one who would be peeking at my presents before Christmas, trying to guess what my gifts were…I still do that sometimes. All though, I have come to realize that when you are totally surprised by a gift you get, those gifts are the best…don’t you think?

So just FYI…some girly/personal info. Well, sometime in September I had planned on going into the doctor to get the Nuva Ring for birth control. I hated taking the pill. I was really bad at it. Anyway, instead I found out I was pregnant. SURPRISE. Now, at first I didn’t believe it. I waited a couple weeks and went and had a pee test at the health clinic. Nope. Totally Real. I think that first week I cried every night because I was so scared about having two kids so close together. How could I take care of a baby with an 18 month old running around wreaking havoc? But Devin was excited. I Was excited too, but mostly scared and dreading being sick. Anyway, Devin finally told me to stop worrying about it and to get stressed when the baby was actually here. Haha. Bless him. He really does know what to say to me..because it took away all my stress. I could start being really excited. And let me tell you, I am super excited for this little baby to enter our lives. I have been feeling this little one move since around 14 weeks. Making it seem more real. I am already having dreams about this baby too!

Anyway, this pregnancy has been different from when I was pregnant with Liam. I didn’t have a baby to chase around and take care of last time. But, luckily, I didn’t get as sick this time either. I think I only threw up 8 times.  But I have been exhausted. Feeling better now. So far, no weight gain or loss (since going to the doctors..) Eating sucks. Poor Devin has to deal with my whining about being so hungry but nothing sounding good. Sorry, babe.

Well today we had an early ultrasound. I’m 16 weeks 4 days today only, but we decided to get a gender check. (I'm still not good at surprises...we found out early what gender this baby is!) Turns out Liam is going to have a little………

So the reason for this title is because I love the movie Juno. And when she finds out she's pregnant she shakes her pee stick and Dwight from the Office says, "That aint no etch a sketch. This is one doodle that can't be undid home skillet." It's one of my favorite parts. It's funny. Anyway, I’m really grateful for the chance I have to be a mommy to another beautiful baby! Wish me luck!

Here are some cute ultrasound pics :)
