i was made for this.

i'm currently back home in idaho enjoying some good, quality time with family and friends. its been so fun wandering stores and looking at baby things with mom knowing i'm actually "aloud" to look at this now. i've been busy reading my "what to expect now that you're expecting" and man i didn't know anything... but i have come to the conclusion that i'm just built to be pregnant!
-all those hours i spent praying to the boob gods to at least get me out of my sports bra, well thanks for listening 7 years later! and as grandma cinderelle keeps saying enjoy them now before they turn into flat pancakes! gosh am i ever gonna win?!
-this constant queasy feeling? i've been preparing for this part every friday and saturday night for the last year. hung over much?!
-exhaustion? yup i sleep more than my 19 year old brother who doesn't get up before noon (and thats early!)
-remembering those giant, horse sized prenatal pills? piece o cake! i'm a creature of habit. oats and a glass of milk with those horse pills? yes please!
-constant nagging hunger pains? i'm a foodie so i love this part. greatest part of being home... hello jamms! you've never tasted SO good!
-oh those lovely, spontanious crying fits? oh yah love em.... i've never been a huge crier but guess its good for me? ugh no i hate this part. i cry over songs, pictures, nice text messages, fb comments? come one!

truth is, i love being pregnant. i've know for almost 2 weeks now but it feels so much longer. i've grown so attached to this little baby already... by the way my baby is currently the size of a few poppyseeds and its growing arms. creepy much? good thing mama loves you! =)

pregnant =)

whelp cats outta the bag and all over facebook now... mike and i are pregnant! well as Ash put it i'm pregnant and mikes just the lucky bastard ;-)just barely pregnant like we went off birth control 7 weeks ago. i had a period (i know ew yuck!) but it was a very light 2 day one... so i'm thinkin i'm right around 6 weeks pregnant now. we've been talking about babies steadily for awile now but when i came home we looked up my ovulation cycle and we were gonna get serious about it! no need in the house i guess! i don't really know why i even bought a test i'm suppose to start this week so i honestly did not think it would turn out positive! i had to go get sweet potatoes and just thought what the heck and picked one up. i took the test right when i got home and wham 10 seconds later 2 pink lines were popping up! at this point my mind is BLANK so i took the other 2 while freakin out on the phone with mom cause i couldn't pee again! but just like that the other 4 pink lines were very obvious and there's no denying i'm preggors =)

i really wanted to tell mike in a super cute way but lets face it. i saw the truck grabbed the sticks and jumped! mike was speechless but slowly the big shit eatin grin took over and my heart stopped. i've been looking forward to this moment forever just being able to tell him the news and it was even better in person =)

needless to say all sets of parents are very, very excited! pretty much everyone knew it was coming. i even had a 3 people say oh iknew you were i just didn't want to freak you out! what!? lol im also pleased to say i only got asked once if i was going to "take care of it" i kindly said no i'm married, it was planned you can kindly f off now. gotta love the one jealous ex. ugh. we've gotten a ton of questions too so i'll just spell it all out here...

-are we excited? HELL YES WE ARE!!!

-was it planned? yes and no. like i said we got off birth control thinking it would take a few months to get it outta my system... or 1 week?

-when am i due? whelp since i am just a freak and took the test way before i should even know i don't get to go to the doctors for oh about 6 weeks =( so for now i'm stickin with aprilish

-when are we moving back home? we're not. this is part of our "plan" mike has another yearish left of the apprenticeship and there's no way i'm giving up this fab life we've started. so we'll be back home in probably 2-3 years. we want to travel after mike gets his golden ticket. we're still getting ournew trailer probably the end of september. it has another back bedroom for a crib and everything! trailer baby!

-do we want a boy or girl? its weird i'm still getting used to the fact i'm PREGNANT! i really don't care either way. mike says he wants a boy(go figure) so guess we'll wait and see!

i'm really nervous, anxious and just really want to go see a doctor or nurse now. i feel like i have no many questions! am i for sure pregnant? i am excited but wowsa that was fast. can i run still? i'm not an intense 5 mile runner but would like to continue my little jogging... are these the only prenatals i need? cause these horse pills are gonna be a pain, a choking pain. yoga i know its good for me but can do i need to wait for the baby to be i dunno bigger? i don't wanna work on the splits and something bad happen! oh my gosh i'm freakin out! i just don't want to do anything wrong and something happen. i know i'll probably be fine. i'll just keep praying and play it safe? ugh... i think i'll be makin phone calls today ;-)

happy thursday all! =)

Fam Reunion

alright so since i've been back in idaho i've been a bit of a slacker but i think alls forgiven conisder i've been with most of you who read this ;-)

the drive home wasn't hard at all. remmi bean slept the whole way and sang along with me, my singing must sound like howling to him? we spent a few days here in town than headed up to the family reunion up past moyie. im one blessed lady because not only did i get to enjoy my mom's side of the family, my grandma schenck came up with more of the schenck side. how many people get to say both sides "hang out" together?! its wonderful.

i know i don't have to go into too many details of the reunion because lets face it 95% of who reads this is family... the reunion was a total blast. i've always loved being around my family, even my earliest momeries are wonderful but there's something to be said about finally not feeling like one of the "younger" ones. i loved visiting with everyone and feeling like i had something of "value" to add. like how marriage is so hard and rewarding, talking about how it is to finally feel married, and of course babies! thats a given question around my family. if you're dating someone its when ya getting married? and if you're married its when are the babies comin in? i love it.

even though i don't work and really don't have alot of stress in my life, i felt totally completly relaxed. like i didn't have a care in the world. the only thing missing was of course my husband. mike wasn't able to come this year but next year its not even a question. but i have to say it made me feel great and him wheni told him how much he was missed. growing up i've always wanted my boyfriend to be apart of the family and mike is no exception. i swear my parents have taken his side more than mine anyways. and if christopher had a choice he would trade me in for mike "his big brother". its such a wonderful feeling.

my days went like this: a little 4 wheeler ride to pick huckleberries, breakfast, pack our day bag, drinks, snack and head to the lake where we would spend the next oh 6 hrs laying on tubs laughing. i don't think i've ever laughed so much and so often. we would head back to camp and have shower/spicket time. which was by far my favorite time. mostly it was mom amy and i would gather up our shower gel, shampoos and combs to the spicket where in between gasping because of the cold water and laughing our heads off we would feel clean. (well in camping terms, decent feeling) the whole family would gather around for dinner and visit more and really enjoy each other company. i feel like camping with the family was the perfect way to have a reunion. everyone was able to be theirselves in their smelly, no shower, no make up kinda way =)

i love seeing everyone's posts about how great it was and how we can't wait for next year because its the truth! next year will be even better too =)

i leave monday to head back to my trailer life. i know some people have gave their opinions about me missing my 1st wedding anniversary (SUNDAY!!) its hard knowing i won't be there but its okay. i want/need to be here for Jocey's 1st birthday party. i was having some very hard feelings about going home but thankfully i did marry mike who knows me better than anyone and said exactly the perfect thing to help me make my decision. So cda i'm here until monday with no regrets and no hard feelings back home. although now my charming husband has taken pleasure in torturing me with some surprise... crap!

speakin of trailer life i will now be going home to a new car! yay, right? ha no.... mike and landon (apprentice/trailer park pal) bought a flippin race car. ugh its trashy but i got to pick the colors! yellow and limegreen haha guess well see!!

sorry no pictures this time.... all reunion pics are on my fb and i'll post pics of the race car later! =) xo
