I've Cried A LOT Lately // Pregnancy

As most of you know, I am pregnant. Again. Yes, that is right.. Knocked up with baby number two & I could not be happier. Well, I take that back. I could be even happier if I could get my daughter Kenzie back on track with using the potty! Because Lord knows I do not want two kids in diapers at the same time!

Well, that will be another post all by itself..

This pregnancy so far has been good. I am not that far along. Only 6 weeks & 3 days as of today.
I do not even have my first prenatal doctor visit til next Tuesday, so who knows if anything will
change once I am seen. I started getting morning sickness the morning before I went & get my 100th pregnancy test ( lol ) & has been off and on throughout the day since then. This pregnancy I started getting morning sickness a week earlier than I did with Kenzie. 6 weeks with her & 5 weeks with baby #2.

I am always hungry, mainly for chocolate & junk foods & my sense of smell is way stronger now. Which can be very annoying at times especially since I work in a bakery! & let us take a second to talk about hormones! They are the devil, no doubt! I get mad & annoyed a lot. Very easily at that!
It is the worst when I am at work. It may be because I am usually at work by 5 am, working on no sleep. Or the fact that I am in front of hot ovens all day long.

And the crying... it happens a lot. Even before I had a positive pregnancy test I knew I had to be
from all the crying and up and down emotions. I cry at anything. I cry the most while watching Dawson's Creek. Yeah I have been watching that lame show! I just now made it to season 2. & already I have spent most of the episodes crying. My obsession with DC must be a pregnancy thing. Has to be. Even if it is not, we shall say it is to save me the embarrassment!

The hormones have been way more intense so far this go round.
I can only imagine what is in store. But having a healthy child makes it all worth it!

Pregnant or been pregnant, did your hormones get the best of you? & did you obsess over Dawson's Creek like me?! :)

Oh Babyy // Exciting News

I have something exciting to share! I am pregnant with baby #2!!!!!!!!!!
I have been feeling kind of pregnant for over 2 weeks now & then finally got a
positive reading on the pregnancy test on Monday! I swear I have taken a billion
of those things over the past few weeks. We are excited. Extremely happy that we
are being blessed with another child. I am almost 6 weeks, according to my last period, & my
due date is 12-7-14. I have my first doctor appointment May 1 so the due date and how far along
I am could change of course. After having a few miscarriages before my daughter Kenzie
came along I decided that I would never keep my pregnancy to myself til a certain time frame
goes by. I want to enjoy every second of it, & I want everyone to know! :) So of course, everyone knows now, I let Kenzie handle the announcement.

[Guest Post] Life In A Long Distance Relationship

  I would like to take a second to introduce you to a fellow blogger friend. Delene is a 20 something Cali blogger. She is new to the blog world & blogs over at Hello Mini Family. So show her some love & check it out.
  Be sure to follow her on Bloglovin as well.
  Some may think its crazy idea to fall in love with someone 2200 miles away. Guess what? Your heart chooses, not you. There's good days and there's bad days just like any relationship. It's a matter of how much do you want to make it work? how much do you love each other to let the good days over ride the bad days? 
I know for Michael and I, GOD comes first in our relationship. Lately I have done a lot of praying and conversating with God to help us communicate more.Communication is one of the biggest things in a relationship. Especially a long distance one. If that goes out the window, things start popping through ones head. And because there is little physical connections, everything is based on Trust & FAITH. I trust my fiancee with my whole heart. At one point of our decreasing communication, I began to lose a little faith that it will get better. So I pray and pray about it. I HOPE God is listening to my prayers. 
Nothing will stop our LOVE. We love God and we love & adore each other. Sometimes if you're in a ldr you forget a lot of this. For us we are so close that you need a night to remember why you love each other. Re-reading letters, texts, and praying for all of the closeness to come back. 
Missing someone is hard, but knowing its one day closer is what gets me through the lonely days and nights. 
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see | Hebrews 11:1
