Here is the amazing theme song to What's Eating Gilbert Grape. LOVE IT!


Let's just say that I love love love this movie!!!! It is so amazing! I know he has pretty sick hair but I think Johnny Depp is so hott! And the music in the movie is also amazing! If you haven't seen this movie then I demand you go out and watch it right now! And if you don't like Leonardo Dicaprio then this movie will change the way you think about him! He does an amazing job!

Although it's only been 2 weeks since I've been to the Dr, I haven't gained any weight. :D It was such a relief to see the same number as last time. Hopefully it'll be the same the next time I go in. It's really starting to hit me that I am having a baby. I mean it has before but just thinking about how much my life is going to change is kinda scary. Don't get me wrong I can't wait, I'm just kinda freaking out about the space in our tiny apartment. We already have no room whatsoever and with all the stuff we are still going to be getting is going to make it even more crowded in here. I so wish we could find a dump of a house in a nice neighborhood that we could buy for way cheap and fix it up ourselves. That and I wish my husband could make more. I am greatful for what I have but everyone always wants something more. I try not to complain but it would be so wonderful to have those things. I just need to try and focus all my energy on the baby. I'm nervous but I can't wait!

Well I feel dumb

I went to Wal-Mart today to get a new ink cartridge because the printer we have only came with a colored one. It was starting to run out so I started looking online for the cheapest place to get one. SO today I headed to wal-mart and instead of looking at what printers it went with, I just looked at the picture to see if it looked like the one already in it. Well being the dumby that I am I took it out of the box and put it in the printer. Of course it didn't work because it doesn't go with our printer. So I lost 20 bucks today because I can't return it since I opened it. So now we're out twenty bucks and ink. How great.

My prayers have been answered

I am very happy to announce that I DO NOT have gesational diabetes. :) Here is the story of the test. I was asked to come in on Tuesday morning at 8:45 to start my 3 hour glucose test. I asked Rusty to give me a blessing the night before the test to calm me down cuz I had been freaking out a little bit. I had to start fasting at midnight the night before and could not have anything to eat until the test was done. I got there about 10 minutes late due to traffic but ended up waiting anyways because she wasn't even back there. So I had to put my name on the list and go sit in the waiting room. Finally after a couple people were called back she called me. I absolutely HATE needles. So of course I never watch. She probably thought I was a big baby because she asked me everytime if I was ok. So after she drew my blood she told me I needed to come back at 10:10, 11:10 and 12:10. So I went out yet again to the waiting room. The wait actually wasn't that bad because I had my ipod and a wordsearch to entertain me. About 45 minutes before my last time I started to get really hungry. It was getting pretty unbearable. So all in all I was poked with a needle 4 times and since everytime SHE draws my blood I get bruises, it now looks like I am a druggie and have track marks on my arms. On my way home my body was really really weak, so I stopped at KFC, I know probably not the best choice since I still didn't know if I had the diabetes but I did get a wrap so there. Well as I was eating my body started to get really hot and I was getting really uncomfortable. When I got home and out of the car I could barely walk and I was very disorriented. It was pretty awful. So I got in the house and plopped down on the couch to finish my food and didn't move for about 20 minutes. Then after feeling like I was on fire I suddenly felt like somebody dumped a bucket of ice down my whole body and was freezing! What the crap? Why does your body do such weird things when you're pregnant? So anyways, I really hate watching what I eat. I already have OCD and have to check the sodium on everything I eat so before I found out my results I had to check the carbs and sugar on the labels of everything as well. Today as I was cleaning one of the nurses called me but I didn't hear the phone so she just left a message. She said the test was normal and everything was okay. :D What a relief! I bet that I will still be OCD and check the carbs and sugars on every label. I guess I should anyways but I have been a lot better about what I eat and I will continue to do so cuz I do not want to be a blimp by the end of this pregnancy! I am so happy that I don't have gestational diabetes! You have no idea!

I guess I shouldn't expect everything to go my way and be perfect. My glucose reading was a little high so now I have to go in for 3 and a half hours to get tested again to see if I have gestational diabetes. So I think she said I'll have to have my blood drawn every hour. I hate needles so bad! Plus I don't know whether it's because I'm pregnant or if it's the phlebotomist but everytime I've had my blood drawn by this girl at my Dr I've ended up with a bruise and that has never happened to me before ever! Also my iron was low so I have to take an extra iron supplement as well. I'm already taking the prenatal horse pill and a calcium horse pill. Great! Why can't everything just go my way? :(

Time to scream for joy and madness

Time for an update, I know it's been forever but pretty much nothing exciting has happened. Until today at my Dr App. Well first I want to scream for madness because I have gained another 14 pounds!!!!! I am now up to 180 and I still have 11 and a half weeks left! I am gonna be the biggest blimp on the planet! I was totally freakin out when I saw the number on the scale today. So when my Dr walked in he asked how I was and I said I couldn't beleive how much weight I had gained. He said it could be because I have gestational diabetes which I was tested for today as well but he also said it could be just because I have gained the weight. I'm not sure when I'll find out my results but I'm hoping its before my next appointment in 2 weeks. Speaking of taking the test, I started to drink the orange crap and I didn't think it was that bad until I got half way done and it started burning my throat. Then I had to plug my nose to finish the rest. It was nasty. But I really wish I knew why I have been gaining so much weight. Maybe it's from the Taco Bell, but I don't eat that everyday. And it's sooooo good. I freakin love it. But I have been trying to eat better. I actually eat fruits and vegetables alot more than I used to. I have to wake up at 6 every morning and eat something so I always eat a banana. I try to snack on fruits throughout the day as well but there are also fattening and sugar things all around my house so it's very hard not to want to eat it. I really am trying to eat good though. I just hope I shed the pounds really fast once I start breast feeding. Okay now onto the scream for joy part. My Dr has said that since he loves me he is going to deliver my baby! I was so happy when he said that! But starting in April I have to have my Dr appointments on Wednesday morning instead of afternoons, which is totally fine. He did say though that sometimes he can't always be there to deliver his patients babies so he said one of his colleagues might have to do it if he is busy but atleast he is planning on it! I am so so happy! That kinda made me feel better about how much I have gained but now entirely. I am still freaking out a little bit.
