Here comes the bride....

Back in January when my brother first brought Becca to my mom's my mom and I discussed how long until a wedding. We both said by Christmas and we were right! This weekend Jay and Becca will be getting married. I can truly say that I have never seen my brother happier. He holds her hand and hugs her in front of us!! That is a big thing if you know our family,we just aren't huggers or touchy people. I am amazed that she balances him so well. She knows exactly what to do when he gets anxious, she calms him down so well. They are just an amazing couple together.

Happy Wedding weekend!!

Faith 21!!!

We all know my love of shopping,right? I love it but I also like cheap and so sometimes it's hard to find stuff in the umm fluffy,curvy,fleshy,whatever else you wanna call it plus sizes. I find plenty of stuff it's just either old lady or really expensive you know cause you had to add all that extra fabric or what not. I have a love for forever 21, but can't wear anything from there BUT recently I have discovered they have a line called faith21 Their stuff is young and current and pretty cheap. I absolutely would be buying this stuff if I was not indeed almost 6months pregnant!

Even if your not fluffy you should check out Forever 21 for their cheap jewelry. I love it!!

My husband saved me from....

It's 2:45am. I'm up with some awful heartburn, thanks BBQ sandwiches, I've been up for an hour on the internet where else would I be.

A few minutes ago I go and get me some water to go along with my pink lemonade lollipop,Yum. After fixing my glass of water I hear these taps it's pretty loud and I run for Ricky. "Ricky there is something outside the kitchen come here and listen" Ricky who has been passed out for hours gets up cause I won't stop shaking his arm happily and goes to the kitchen . He listens for 5 seconds and then turns the faucet all the way off. My mystery attacker was the dripping faucet hitting something in the sink.

Maybe I shouldn't be allowed out of bed in the middle of the night.

Busy, Busy week!!!

First off I got Kollyn's bedding in last week. Ricky and I wanted something that wasn't in every store and we wanted a theme that wasn't sports. I know that when he gets a little older he will want sports so I didn't want to see it from birth to 21. I'm going to post a picture from online but it's even cuter in person!! We got all 13 pieces brand new for way less than anything else we had looked at, Thank you EBAY!

The fabric has suede,terry cloth and corduroy and eveything is stitched on not imprinted like I thought it is so cute and I can't wait to get started getting his room together.

But first we have two events coming up!

My brother is getting married Saturday. It is an outdoor wedding so lets hope that it cools down Saturday by 5pm for all of us. The ceremony is being held in a wooded area so it will be a little cooler, we hope. Jay and Becca fit so well together it's like they have known each other all their lives. So Sweet!!!

Sunday we will be heading to Gatlinburg!! Another little getaway! We are heading off with Ricky's parents,brother and Ricky's paw paw and his wife Becky. It should be fun. We will be back on Tuesday evening and then getting ready to get this house ready for some remodeling and building. Nothing too big just some closets and doors and new railing on our front porch. We will then be ready to start putting Kollyn's room together, I can't wait!!!

Hope everyone has a great week.

PUPPP rash

PUPP~ Pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy (PUPPP), also known as polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, is the most common rash in pregnant women. It normally occurs in first pregnancies during the third trimester with an average onset of 35 weeks. Thankfully, PUPPP does not usually affect subsequent pregnancies. ( For more about PUPPP click HERE

Better known to me is a pain in the well every where on my body. I'm talking stomach,legs,back,boobs, arms, EVERYWHERE!!!! This is the most itchy, sore, stinging, painful thing I have ever experienced. Usually this only happens in the third trimester, lucky me has had it since 18 weeks!!! There is nothing to make it go away just temporary relief. From the research I found it seems that Kollyn's dna got into my blood stream and this is my body fighting the male dna. It isn't harmful to the baby in anyway. I have used 6 tubes of hydrocortisone cream in the last week, a bottle of caladryl and so much children's benadryl it's not funny. I decided to take some pictures to remind Kollyn of the pain in the body he was before he was born.

*** Sorry for the stretch mark pictures, you can thank Regan for those. I do***

Oh and this won't go away until hours or weeks after he is born!!! Fun! Fun!!

It's a ...........................

Wednesday was the big ultrasound and we found out that we are having..............

a sweet





We are super excited to be giving Regan a brother to grow up with. We didn't get really good pictures because our little man was moving so much but the video we got was great!! Our little boy's legs measured a week ahead so we aren't 100% sure of the date but the doctor said to just stick with our Oct.23 date.

After my appointment my mom and I headed to Panama City Beach and spent a few days relaxing and enjoying Regan playing in the "Big Pool" Such a fun way to celebrate the news of our little boy.

His name is going to be Kollyn Avery. We finally came up with a name and spelling and so we are ready for October to be here so we can meet our second sweet little boy.

It's a ......................

I'll tell everyone Friday cause I'm leaving for the beach as soon as my appointment is done!!

I think I'm private!!

I have went back and forth about this and well for right now I think it's best. Strange places were spending too much time and trying to copy pictures of Regan.

On other news a blog that I was interested in turned out to be a scam. This woman said she was pregnant and the baby had trisomy 13 and some other issues and that she was expected to even be born. I started reading her blog in April she asked for donations and got lots of money and gifts from people she even started a thing called HIS WILL WEDNESDAY where other readers could send in prayer request and she would post them on for all to pray about, well over the weekend she went into "labor" she had decided on a home birth because they knew the baby wouldn't live very long with the issues it had, she posted pictures of a baby that she said was hers but her baby only weighed 4 pounds and in the pictures the baby was probably 10-12 pounds, had a perfect complexion, and a beautiful face. It just kills me that people would use a genetic issue to make money. It's sad that there are people out there like this. The blog has since been deleted and no one will ever know the true story behind April rose and her mom B. I'm disgusted at the whole idea and that I got swept into it. I even made Ricky get off the xbox live Sunday so I could keep checking on her. How sad, I hope that the author of that blog never has to face a real issue with a child because the child deserves better than a scam artist parent.

okay enough ranting for today. Less than 24 hours till I know if we are having a boy or girl!!!!! I'm so excited!!!

Going private.....

I get hardly any comments on this blog but at least 20 people a day visit. That freaks me out and so in one week this blog will go private. I would love to have you to keep reading my blog but I don't really need people in some strange country reading and copying pictures of us for some unknown reason. So within the week if ya wanna keep reading send me an comment or email and I'll add you to the list of readers. If not you won't get to find out what the baby is because we find out next Wednesday!!

June 1st

I've dreaded this day for 7months 1week and 3days. It is a day that will I will remember forever. Even when everyone I know has forgotten and they have, I will know that my sweet baby was due today. I've heard other mothers of lost babies say that they felt the loss even 25 years later. I know for sure I will. Today I feel the lump in my throat instead of the lump in my stomach as I think of what should of been.

After over two years of trying I was so excited to find out that all the charting,medicines, wanting, praying, crying had finally paid off. We were expecting!! 9 short weeks later this horrible day happened even in 9 weeks I fell in love with this sweet baby It's hard to describe loving someone you have never set eyes on but I did. I still love that baby, not a day has gone by that I haven't thought of where in my pregnancy I would be. I still even with this baby know how many weeks and what would be happening if the baby was still growing inside me.
Today is a day that I remember that things can be taken away in a single moment. That even when we think we have our road all mapped out we aren't the driver, we are just passengers along for the ride.
