Okay, I know I promised to blog about Christmas, and I will. But I have been so sick the last few weeks and it probably won't get better anytime soon. Justin and I found out on New Year's Eve that I am PREGNANT!! Yes, after a year of trying we were taken by surprise. It is a good surprise, but I think I will be happier when the morning sickness goes away. By the way, whoever named it morning sickness was wrong, I have all day sickness. It has been so hard going back to work. I have had to go sleep in the nurses office both days I have been back.
There is a funny story about how we found out. The week before Christmas my back started to hurt really bad and it kind of hurt when I needed to go to the bathroom. I thought I had a UTI. So I went to the Dr. the day before Christmas Eve. They tested my urine and said it could be an infection, but they would go ahead and treat it. So I started taking the medication. On Christmas morning I woke up so sick to my stomach I thought I was going to be sick. I just thought it was the medicine making me nauseous. Well, it continued and finally on New Year's Eve I was supposed to go ride the new Light Rail with my family, I called and told them to go without me. My mom told me to go back to the Dr. So I called and made an apt. for that afternoon. I get there and I tell the Dr. I feel sick all the time, my breasts are sore, my legs hurt and I feel nauseous all day. She said, "Could you be pregnant?" I told her we were trying for a year and that I just didn't think I was. She said we needed to do a pregnancy test. Well, she came back and said, "It came back and you are pregnant!" I said, "WHAT!! Are you sure? I'm really pregnant?" And so yes, I am pregnant. We are both really happy. I just hope this nausea goes away after the first trimester so I can enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.
I will keep you updated. I have a Dr. apt. this Thursday and hopefully they can tell me how far along I am. I was having such crazy menstrual cycles that I wasn't even tracking them. Yes, we are going to find out the sex when we can, because I can't wait. We are talking names all the time and we just can't agree on a boys name.

Today is my birthday!! I turned 29. I don't feel like I am 29. I was trying to scan in a photo of me from when I was young, but I couldn't figure out how to do it. I will have to try later. I promise to post some blogs tomorrow. I have some Christmas pictures I want to blog about.
