First Doctor's Appointment!

Well now that we are up to date we can continue!!

So today was my first doctor's appointment! I went in and had to give a urine sample, answer twenty-million questions about my health and my family health, then give blood, and set up my next appointment!
So far so good on the pregnancy! And we get to have our first sonogram on November 12th!!! So excited to get my first picture of Pebble!!!!

It was also super exciting getting to tell the rest of the family and my work friends!!! I am so glad I don't have to keep it a secret anymore!!!

I will keep you updated!!! : )

Spreading the Good News!

So we found out we were pregnant on a Sunday and were trying to decide how we were going to tell our parents and sisters. We wanted to wait a little longer so that we could make sure the baby was going to stick. We also needed to decide what we would call out new baby until we found out whether it was a boy or girl. My sister Angela called Annelise nugget in utero... Trent's sister called Brekon pumpkin and she calls he newest baby z peanut. So Trent and I looked online for in utero nicknames and after going though names like Karate, Little Monster, and Alien... we decided on Pebble! Obviously Pebble will end up much larger than a pebble but its the perfect name until we find out if Pebble is a He or a She : )

Well my mom's birthday is on Oct 7th so we decided that would be the perfect day to tell her she would be a Babi again! So I drove down to Ennis and went to my dad's office and called him to come over to his office and to call mom and tell her to come over but don't tell her I'm here since I am her birthday present! So he comes over and I can't wait till mom gets there to tell him so I tell him and he gives me a big hug congratulations and says "So you were pregnant on Sunday!" and I said well we didn't know until we got home that night that we were pregnant. So then mom shows up and I gave her a gold necklace box (with a positive pregnancy test in ti... yes that's a little gross but I made sure to Lysol wipe it first!) when she opened it her response was "I am so glad its not a necklace!" She was super excited too!!! The only part she wasn't excited about was not being able to tell my sisters about it till the following night (after we told Trent's parents) and having to wait till our first doctors appointment to tell the rest of the family! So we went to dinner then I drove home!
Then Friday night we were planning on going to dinner with Trent's parents and grandparents. So it would be perfect to tell them! Now just a little background is that Trent's mom kept saying "I need more grandbabies!!" and "You are going to be so cute pregnant" and things of that sort for the past month but she actually had no idea that we were even considering trying! She has actually said "Y'all are probably going to start trying in what two years?" just the week before this and I said "I don't know" and played coy haha So we are waiting to be seated at Papasitos in Arlington and Sandy and Grandma make a comment about not being able to go to Destin next summer because Baby Z will be too little to drive that far. So Trent says "Well speaking of that... We are pregnant too!" and Sandy was like WHAT?? and then when I said "Yes, we are pregnant!" there was all kinds of screaming and excitement and congratulations!!! Sandy was hilarious and had the perfect reaction haha. So then of course she says I want to call Brandi, y'all need to tell her already! So we go to the car so its not so loud (and leave Brit and Papa to wait for our name to be called) and call Brandi and she doesn't believe us at first but is also super excited.. obviously Brekon doesn't really understand haha but we pretended he was excited. We then called my sisters and told them and there were super excited to be Aunts. And I got to talk to Annelise and she even said "Yay!" which who knows if she knew what she was saying but it was super cute!!

So then of course we just had to wait two weeks for our first doctors appointment so we can tell the rest of the family!!!


So I got off birth control and we decided to try to have a baby!!! Well as it turns out we are either super fertile or we are just good at making babies ; ) We got pregnant our first month trying!!!

I started feeling a little nauseous and completely exhausted about a week before I should have started my period. However I was convinced that I was just overreacting because I want to be pregnant and that I am just imagining this stuff. I don't say anything to Trent because I don't want him to get his hopes up that we are pregnant, but I kind of think we are. However he was at home one day between shifts and watching Friends. On the episode he was watching, Pheobe is trying to get pregnant with her brother's babies as a surrogate. Pheobe being Pheobe sings "Are you in there little fetus... Will you come out in nine months to meet us... I will buy you some Adidas!" and he sends me this in a text message!!! (without the background on watching Friends and it being a Pheobe song!!) I was like HUH?!?! What are you talking about?!?! after he explained I was relieved haha but couldn't help but want to sing that to my belly in hopes that I was pregnant!!! haha

So the week before I should start, my mom had given me a huge guilt trip about missing me and she hadn't seen us in so long, so I told Trent we needed to go to Ennis to visit family. He was fine with going to Ennis on Sunday. So we go to Ennis and meet at my parents house. We are hanging out for a little bit, then Trent and my dad went to go check hogs or something. As soon as they leave my mom says "Are you pregnant yet..." and I was like "What?!?! No I don't think so, but I haven't started my period yet..." I was completely taken aback that I just blurted that out, when I should have just said no so that she wouldn't be expecting a phone call in the next week saying I was pregnant! She then replies "Me and Daddy thought maybe that's why y'all were coming to see us!" and of course I said "Huh?? you are the one that asked us to come!" haha oh well! So of course this gets it in my head that hmm... maybe I am pregnant.... I have been nauseous.... and I should've started last night.... or even this morning.... and I haven't!!!

Trent and I had promised each other that we wouldn't take a pregnancy test until I was already late so we wouldn't get our hopes up. So I send Trent a text when he is sitting next to me and say "can we get a pregnancy test on the way home?" and his response (just like a man) "Why?" haha and so I said "well I am late by a day... and I have been feeling nauseous" so he says "Sure if you want."
Then I am super nervous all the way home and am getting my hopes up!!! Just like I said I wouldn't!!!! :) So we go to Wal-Mart... hope like hell we don't see anyone we know :) and get a pregnancy test. As Trent said "Get a good one so are sure whether its yes or no and don't have to come back to get another one!" So we go home and both of us need to pee really bad so that works out nicely. I do my thing and am so nervous that I leave it on the counter and go put laundry in the wash. So Trent comes and asks... So whats the answer? and I said "I don't know... I haven't looked" So I tell him to look first... so he picks it up away from me of course and asks..."What do you want it to say??" and I say "I don't care" even thought I really do care!!!!! and he says no really what do you want it to say... and I say "I want to be pregnant!" and he replied well... you are!!!
We were so excited!!! :) I couldn't stop smiling or believe that it was true!!! So when we went to bed guess what we sang to my belly.... yep the Pheobe song... "Are you in there little fetus... will you come out in nine months to meet us... we will buy you some Adidas..."

The Beginning!

Okay so this is my second post, but I am probably going to post several blogs today that I have been wanting to post for a while! :)
Back on June 19th, our wonderful wedding day!, during the sermon that Fr. John gave he mentioned at least three times "perhaps in nine months this family will become three." Trent and I laughed this off during the ceremony and were super surprised when several people came up to us at the reception and asked if I was already pregnant!!! We were like NO!! We promise we aren't!!! It wasn't a big deal and we both knew that we did want to start a family pretty quickly but we wanted Trent to either have an EMT job or fire job before we started a family. Trent and I both were having baby fever! But we kept saying not till Trent has a job... everything is stressful enough with only one income since he is in paramedic school!

So skip forward a month and a half.... I have decided that everything truly happens for a reason!! Here is why... In the middle of August, my alarm on my phone goes off in the evening telling me to take my birth control pill. I was being lazy on the couch and got up to go get my pill and jokingly said to Trent "Maybe I should get off BC" and he replied "I don't care its up to you" so I kind of took that as the go-ahead that I could get off BC haha :) and.... (I am a bad wife) I didn't actually verbalize that I was getting off of BC to Trent. hehe. Well literally the next day Trent gets an email from Medstar that they would like him to take an EMT test because they liked his application!! Therefore I was super excited and thought this is perfect!! HE will get this job and we will get pregnant! Its awesome! So then a couple of days later after trying to make babies I jokingly said to Trent "just think... we could be pregnant!" and he said "Well not really since you are still on BC..." and so I laughed it off and thought "Well obviously he wasn't really ready for me to get off BC, I'll start taking my pills again... : (" Then the very next day... Trent goes to take the EMT test and it won't work and it won't go through and he is getting pissed and the Medstar people are not being helpful. So me being the "everything happens for a reason" kind of person tells Trent.... "I know why you haven't been able to take the test... God wants us to accept that we need to have a baby right now..." and he was like "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?!?!?!" Then I spilled my guts about my BC on and off extravaganza and he immediately says... "GET OFF BC THEN!!! BECAUSE I WANT A JOB!!!" So we make the decision to finish off the BC pack and we will start trying with my next cycle. ( no worries we did talk at length about whether we are really ready or not) Of course.... the next day the test goes through AND he gets an interview with CareFlite!!!!

As most of you know Trent went through the hiring process for both Medstar and CareFlite... and was offered a job from both!!! He gladly accepted the EMT position from CareFlite!! So everything worked out PERFECTLY!!!!

Virgin Blogger

Welcome to my blog!
I haven't ever blogged before, but my sisters and lots of my friends blog and say its a great way to vent and let everyone know whats going on in our lives without having to make a milion phone calls. So I am going to start with a little background...
I am Melisa and my husband's name is Trent. We met in August of 2004 when our junior year of high school started and he was the "new kid." We were friends throughout high school and decided to start dating in July of 2006 after we graduated. We both went too college in Fort Worth and continued dating throughout college. Trent proposed in December 2008 and we were married June 19, 2010!
We have now been married almost 4 months and are loving every minute! We are living in Fort Worth which is an hour from his parents and an hour and a half from my parents, but we love the area and plan on staying here.
Well I guess that is my first blog! Hopefully I will have something truly blog worthy soon! : )
