6 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Me

I have been tagged by Elaine at (I am so sorry...I don't know how to do that linking thing!) Anyhow, the rules are simple: link to the person who tagged you, list the rules in your blog, share six non-important quirks about yourself, tag at least 3 people, and leave those you tagged a comment so they can play too!

So here goes:

1. When I was 21 I went to Atlantic City for the very first time. I actually won 30,000 on a slot machine. Paid off my school loans and saved for my wedding! It was surreal!

2. I am a reality tv junkie. The strike isn't affecting me too much b/c I watch so much reality tv. I love American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, Dance War, Bachelor, Real World...the list goes on and on. I am even so pathetic that I watch "Reality Chat" on tv guide network.

3. Due to parents' divorce and remarriages I have 9 siblings. One full brother, 2 half brothers, 4 half sisters, and 2 step brothers. CRAZY! Imagine the family reunions!

4. I like to think I am musically inclined. I sang and played an instrument all through school. I now sing in the church choir and play hand bells. However, I will not be a contestant on American Idol any time soon!

5. I love ethnic foods! If I go out to eat, chances are I will choose either Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, or even Greek restaurants. My favorite are the habachi grills where they cook in front of you.

6. I am a Wizard of Oz fanatic. I have an entire curio cabinet filled with collectibles. I do an entire W of O tree at Christmas time. I pretty much have the movie memorized.

I now tag Moon and Star Mommy who just got a BFP and this will take her mind off things till her next u/s. I also tag In Search of Morning Sickness b/c her husband just got deployed and maybe this will help the time go faster. Finally I tag Nancy who is in the second week of her 2ww.

1/4 of the way there!

Quick update b/c I have been meaning to write, but truthfully I have just been too sick. NOT THAT I AM COMPLAINING ABOUT IT! But, really the last week has been rough. Last night I spent the night in the emergency room. I was having horrible pains and feared miscarriage. When I arrived they said the cramping was due to severe dehydration. They also did an u/s though (YAY!) and I got to see the lil peanut. Always makes me feel better.

I am so sorry that I haven't been commenting much. I am still reading all your blogs, but commenting has taken a back seat for right now. I have so much I want to say and as soon as I start feeling better you will all probably get a book from me.

Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep last night, so this will be all for tonight. By the way...10 weeks down. I like to think of it as a quarter of the way there. As always, thank you so much for your prayers and support. You are all in my thoughts and prayers as well. Good luck as some of you are in your 2 ww and some have an iui planned or just had one done. Sticky vibes!!!!!

So Far So Good!

Had my appointment yesterday. I would've written except for the fact that I fell asleep before 8 o clock on the couch and didn't get up till this morning. Probably due to losing so much sleep the previous nights due to stress about my appt. IT was such a relief to have confirmation that there is in fact a baby in my uterus. Teh doctor did an ultrasound and I wouldn't look at the screen until I asked if he saw a heartbeat. He did!

I am feeling so happy, but I can't lie. I am still stressed. Obviously the next 4 weeks will be long. My back is hurting very badly which I fear is a sign of miscarriage, but I am trying not to focus on it.

I am so thankful for all the prayers that I know that many of you have said for me. I am really appreciative.

I will write again when I am not soooo exhausted. It was quite a long day, but I wanted to give a quick update.

Hugs to all!

Still hanging in there!

Well, as far as I know...I am still pregnant. I am over 7 weeks now, but I still haven't physically seen my doc. My appointment is next Monday (the 14th) and it feels soooo far away!

It is difficult to blog. I feel soooo blessed to be where I am, but so worried too. I don't want to write a post that seems like I am complaining. I do have symptoms which is a good thing. While I don't enjoy puking each night, it is a nice reminder. I am, however, going in tomorrow for iv hydration.

I am still reading all of my favorite blogs and I am still thankful for all of my supporters. I will try to write again before my appt. on Monday.

Happy New Year

So much for me responding to the tag. I actually thought that I clicked on "publish post" but apparently, I didn't. So....when I get bored, maybe I will do it again. But for now, I am just too tired.

I have not been MIA. Thanks for those who ~checked in on me~. I was actually at hubby's parents for our Christmas celebration since Sat. We decided to tell them of the BFP, but told them to be cautiously excited. Also, that we were not ready to share our news. Basically we had to tell them due to my new symptom of...morning sickness. Make that all day sickness. Trust me, I am not complaining! Although vomiting several times a day is not enjoyable, I do know it is a "good sign."

So now I wait for my appointment which not until Jan. 14. It seems SOOOO far away! Thanks for the prayers and sticky vibes. I have made it to 6 weeks. 34 more to go!

Hugs and prayers to all as we enter 2008. I hope all of your dreams come true!
