Pregnancy Update

Sunday = ¼ of the way there! Already! I have been incredible blessed this pregnancy, first off I found out I am only having ONE!!! Though others were voting, hoping & praying for 2+, I was praying for only one. Sorry Liz & Grandma Kate. I have also been very blessed in many other ways going through my first (almost) 10 weeks. I have had very minimal morning sickness, and when it does come it tends to be more sporadic and usually comes and goes within a matter of 10-20 minutes. I have also been very lucky that the time has been passing pretty quickly & that we were blessed with Grandmas offer to do a few extra sonograms throughout my pregnancy to get a couple extra fun glimpses at the baby. This past Monday we were able to get our first look at our little one & hear its heart beat. It was wonderful to get that personal moment with Steven & Grandma. It was so nice that I could go in relaxed & not have to be poked & prodded at first as well as be in such a unfamiliar environment to be able to enjoy our first special moments seeing our baby. We were also able to record the sonogram on tape so we are able to watch it time & time again, share it with others, as well as let our little one watch it someday. Such a precious gift we have been given!

I have not really had any major cravings yet. I have been partial to starches, mainly potatoes. But they have not been a need to have thing, just something blissfully enjoyed. I haven’t been able to stomach eggs and have missed cold lunch meat. I have been doing good as far as weight too, I have only been able to eat small meals, sometimes very small, and that will keep me full for a few hours. So with running around on weekends & eating small amounts I have managed to loose 6 pounds! Of course I haven’t been trying, it just happened. I have been amazed now that I am pregnant it has been effortless to maintain my current weight. I have not until this week started to gain any weight, I did manage one pound, but have noticed that my eating needs have changed. Now first thing in the morning I am starving & could eat a horse & then I can’t seem to make it to lunch time without snacking on something. Then I could eat a cow for lunch & be starving in the next 3 hours when I get home, luckily by the time I eat a snack when I get home from lunch I am able to eat a small dinner & be good all night. Weird! Though I have been lacking cravings I make up for that with my need to sleep. The last two weeks have been nice, I have not felt like I had to take naps but this week I feel like I can’t seem to get enough sleep!!!

Enough with the rambling, I need to start killing time at work so the day passes quicker & I can go home & take the nap I am longing for!!!

Last Deep Sea Trip For A While

This will be my first official post as an expecting mom! I am very excited, well, when I’m not sleeping, I’m doing a lot of that these days. I have had a pretty easy time so far, but that is considering that I am only a day over 6 weeks, so it is still early. I had my first taste of proof that my hormones have completely taken over yesterday. I know now there will be no more deep sea fishing trips for me in the near future. Usually I don’t get sick at all & if I do it is very mild & short lived, but yesterday’s adventure was a bit of a different story. We took a few friends out to 9 mile reef (about 9 miles off shore) & no sooner did the boat stop was I feeling really bad. It was a nice day as well compared to other days we have gone off shore. I think Steven ended up feeling really sorry for me & we headed back in to fish a lot closer to shore. Luckily we all had better luck closer to shore, me with feeling ill & the guys with fishing. We all caught quite a few fish & a lot of sharks; they really enjoyed the fight that the sharks gave. We ended up with about 4 keepers, over all a good & beautiful day.

Good weekend - Wonderful Birthday!!!

I had a wonderful birthday weekend! My birthday was not until Monday but we decided to go out Saturday so we were able to relax the rest of the weekend & not worry about plans. So, Saturday we slept in got up & headed to lunch, Steven took me to Japanese, one of my favorites, and then sent me on my way to the spa for a 1 hour Swedish massage & then a manicure. It was so very relaxing & rejuvenating. When I came home I was greeted with 3 new pots of flowers & a few boxes of my favorite beer. We, then got all dressed up for dinner & headed out for a wonderful dinner at The Bone Fish Grill. We finished the evening out with meeting a few friends at the Comedy Zone to see DC Curry perform.

Sunday my dad cooked me a wonderful birthday dinner, followed by cake & ice cream. They all pitched in to give me such a wonderful gift, the Wii Fit, I had been looking for one, but it is still a hard to find item. They found one though – thank you for all the hard work guys, I love it!!! We brought Michael home with us for the night & we played the Wii Fit for hours.

Monday we had plans to attend Grandpa Doyle’s Labor Day/GrandNita’s birthday party. Before we went & spent part of the morning making my first homemade pie, strawberry & rhubarb. The pie went over well, about 2/3’s of it was gone when we left & Steven made sure to grab the remaining 1/3 of it. We enjoyed hanging out with family, all the great food & lounging in the pool. It was a nice Labor Day.

Over all it was a wonderful weekend & birthday, my husband did such a wonderful job making sure of that. Thank you baby!

Trigger's boating trip

Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Along For The Ride

Triggers first trip on the boat with us was Sunday. I think he had a blast (I will post pictures soon to verify my claims). :o) After all the rain we figured it was due time to take the boat out for a bit & after some persistent begging & puppy dog eyes I convinced Steven to let Trigger tag along. We didn’t take both dogs because they do not seem to behave as well when together; they tend to work each other up into a frenzy of excitement & anticipation. Anyways, after a little complaining from Dad about his truck having Trigger hair all over it we made it to base to put the boat in. Full steam ahead to Hooters for some lunch & a pitcher, Trigger seem to be enjoying the boat ride as he checked every seat in the boat for the most comfortable. He finally found one we were all happy with, on my lap next to Dad with a full view all everything. Arriving at Hooters I was a little apprehensive about Trigger behaving & not being able to have a relaxing, enjoyable meal. But much to my surprise he was the trophy dog! I couldn’t have asked for a better behaved dog & we were SO proud of him. He chilled under the table as we slipped him a little tid-bit or two, there was no begging though. When people came up to see him he either remained laying or greeted them calmly & with no jumping! All our hard work has paid off!!! We took a few pictures & tried to get him to take one with a Hooters girl but he wasn’t too comfortable doing it, so we didn’t push it. After lunch we wanted to take a few moments to hop in the water & cool off & try Trigger in the water. We calmly placed him in the water with one of us & he didn’t like it. I think the body of water was a little too big for my little guy. But now I know that he is not big into swimming, which takes a little fun out of bringing him on the boat but it takes a lot of worry out of it on the other hand. We will defiantly bring him again as he was such a joy!

Tropical Storm Fay

Well, we all survived Tropical Storm Fay! Yes, Steven was gone but I think I did a pretty good job. We didn’t have anything at the house for a hurricane or a tropical storm so I had to go shopping, fill up the Jeep & of course get some kind of craft to keep me busy. After running around all day Wednesday I was pooped! I stayed home that evening & they packed up the dogs & an over night bag & went to my dad’s so I wouldn’t have to sit alone as well as the dogs not driving me nuts. I am very thankful that my parents are so laid back & have tile & a couple extra old sheets. It is so nice to be able to bring the my 2 little, darling, heathens to my dad’s & for them to welcome them with open arms & not worry about the mud they tracked in or the dirty paw prints that they left on the (sheet protected) couches. Friday I ventured home & spent the rest of the day hanging out with the dogs, watching for tornados & working on a craft. It was a fairly relaxing day, except all the tornado scares, luckily though I didn’t have to spend any time in the tub :o). Saturday was a lot better but still wet, I assessed the damage at our house, which thankfully wasn’t a lot, a full panel of our fence blew down & another panel had a screw come out, besides that we got a lot of rain that our ground didn’t know what to do with, but over all we were good. Saturday we all had to get out of the house & Jenny, Katie & I went to lunch & looking around at a store or two, mostly just killing time for Steven to arrive. Sunday was really nice during the day; we took the boat out for a long overdue trip, went to lunch & swam a bit on the way back home, later that night though we got another good amount of rain. I remember Steven saying “It is STILL raining?!?!?”

Family First….????

Steven will more than likely be flying a plane across country for the next few days to be hurricane evacuated, meaning he will be leaving us here. It is not his choice & comes with the job, but it doesn’t make it any less crappie! I understand the amount of damage that could happen to the planes & the amount of money that would cost but on the other hand what happened if there was a bad tropical storm or hurricane that came through & I & the dogs had to evacuate ourselves or something happened to the house, I am then dealing with it all without him. I am though lucky enough to have family here & the families who don’t are in my thoughts. I know my thoughts are really irrational but hurricane Katrina sticks in my mind when knowing that the guys will need to get all the planes out of harms way. I will be lucky enough to know that he is safe, but will he know that I am safe. This lifestyle sometime gets really tough & exhausting to deal with, but what do you do but try to keep your chin up & move forward. Doesn’t mean that sometimes I HATE it all!

About Me

I am not neat and organized.

I do not have to be the center of attention, but I love it when I am.

I have worked many jobs…cashier, host, child care teacher, telemarketer, receptionist, customer service, secretary, dog trainer.

I am going to school & pursuing a career in dog training.

I am one of many, many siblings.

I surf the internet with no rhyme or reason.

I love to take pictures, but have no clue as to what I am doing.

I am incredibly afraid of lightning but love watching it from a safe place.

I am afraid of going in water I can not see through.

My spelling is something to be desired & spell most words exactly how they sound.

My dogs are my children.

I have been told “I love you” with Reese’s Pieces.

I’m not always outgoing but I am not always shy either, I am the happy medium.

Crafts are my hobby.

I am not usually one to rush.

I am creative & colorful yet simple.

I wait for things to go on sale.

I enjoy & am thankful for the simple things in life.

I am a good shot with a gun.

I don’t like leaving voicemails.

I try to think outside of the box.

First things first :o)

My first blog. Honestly I don’t know why I have actually decided to do this but I have and if you are reading this then I did.

I guess I figured this might be a way for people I don’t talk to often enough to keep up with the ever changing & evolving life.

So with further ado…

I am a wife. I am my husband’s mistress – Go Navy! I have met many friends through the military that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I tend to ramble my posts so either bear with me or don’t. I drink beer, use spell check a LOT, I am scared of lightning. I have 2 dogs, 3 turtles, two snakes, spilt ends, an elliptical but use the gym's and a boat that is not used enough. But mostly….I am Amanda.
