Everythings Ok!

Alrighty...after spending almost an hour at the doc's, it was determined that I have pulled a muscle in my neck. She also checked the baby's heart beat and it was just a beating away. I currently have to ice my neck, take tylenol with coating (I know that's not right, but that's what it sounded like) and have to have 2 days off of work. She also doesn't want me lifting things. So...I'm left to do pretty much nothing. I really pray that this will take care of the pain.
Have a great night!


Hey everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. For the most part I did.
Friday I started developing a severe pain in the back of my neck, it is kind of right where my head and neck meet. After I got out of work, I laid down and took a nap. This sounded like a wonderful idea at the time. When I woke up, I was in so much pain I started throwing up. I took some ibephrophen and that helped a little bit, but the pain was still there. I really took it easy for the rest of the night because I did not want it to get worse.
We decided to go to bed, which once again, sounded like an awesome idea. Instead, everytime I laid down I would throw up. Needless to say I was up until 3 in the morning trying to fight this. Finally I broke down and called the emergency phone number for my doctor. The lady said to take some Alieve (It's all I had in the house) and if it didn't get better then go to the emergency room. Well, after I took the Alieve, I fell asleep sitting up.
The next morning the pain was still there, but not near as bad. So I just thought that it was fixing itself. All day Saturday, it was sore, but absolutely nothing like Friday.
Sunday, the pain was back. I didn't go to the hospital because I had my graduation and I really didn't want to miss that. So I took some Alieve and pulled through. Eric and I decided that at that point I needed to call the doctor on Monday because it obviously wasn't going to get better.
Well here we are on Monday, I called the doctor and I have to go in in about 1/2 an hour. I pray that it is something simple and something that won't affect and hasn't affected the baby at all. So after I get out I will update on here.
Have a great day!

The Heart Beat!!

Hey everyone!
What a day! God is so amazing, the technology he has made, WOW! Anyway, we got to hear the heartbeat for the first time today. It was great, not only great but perfect! Hearing it, made everything just feel real. Besides being sick, having a positive test, and some random soreness, it honestly just felt like we were just telling people that we were having a baby. It just didn't seem real, but hearing that blom blom noise and seeing 166 beats per minute on the little screen, it is real! It's really real!
This past week we also got a minivan! Me driving a minivan...yeah it's dangerous! Eric yelled at me because I hit the mailbox...well 3 times now...with my mirrors. I'm just not used to driving something that big. We got a 2002 Dodge Caravan, I absolutely love it. We wanted something bigger so we could take Grace and the baby somewhere at the sametime. There is so much room in it, I just don't know what to do with it all!
Sunday, we had our first softball practice. Talk about really hard! I, obviously, am not able to play, so sitting on the sidelines was extremely hard. Seeing everyone run around, I felt like the kid with chickenpox in the middle of summer. Going from playing on two teams, to none at all, it's a big change for me and I really think it is going to be tough. In the end, I'll have a little baby, so it will be worth it. We also go out for ice cream after every game, so that will be a bonus as well!
Well this ended up being A LOT longer than I thought! Time to get crackin on my final!
Have a great night.

Baby Names

Hey everyone!
One week from today and we get to hear the heartbeat!!! So exciting! I honestly can't wait until we find out the sex (yes we are finding out early). I am convienced that it is going to be a boy. I really have no basis behind it, just the fact that we only have a boys named 100% fully picked out and I have an odd craving for bacon, which is what my mother had when she was pregnant with one of my younger brothers. We have decided on Malakai James. That is the only name that we could both decide on. If for some random reason it is a girl I cannot decided between: Isabella, Hannah, and Kennedy. All with the middle name of Louise. Eric really loves the name Trinity Louise. We still have a long time to decide, but it's just one of those things that you think of. So roughly 9 more weeks and we will know if it is a boy or a girl. I really do want it to be a boy, why, I don't know.
Anyway, time to go to bed!!
Have a goodnight everyone!

Few Pics

I learned the hard way that it's not a good idea to ask your pregnant wife if she's going to be ok after she's done throwing up.

This is the 1st thing we (by we I mean Jenn) bought for the baby.

Still Sick

Hey Everyone!
So apparently the vitamins only work for a little while. This past week I have been sicker than ever. I feel horrible for Eric, as you can see in the picture he added, I can not be a happy camper at times. Most of the time I'm good, but at night when I'm tired and sick, it's just not a good combination. Monday I have to call the doctor and see if he will give me a different vitamin. At the appointment he said that if these didn't work, then to call. Well honestly, they worked awesome for like two weeks. I would only feel a little sick in the morning, but I can handle that. Now at night it's like I have to try and fall asleep before I get sick again.
On a better note, in two weeks I will be all done with school. It's going to be really exciting. My grandparents are coming home from Florida on the 20th. The 21st we get to hear the baby's heart beat. The 24th Grandma Barbie is coming to town and I have my final class. Then on the 27th I graduate. What a great and busy week.
Well everyone have a great night, I have to get back to some homework!!

Brenham Jay

Hey Everyone!
This post has absolutely nothing to do with my little baby.
A girl that I know from highschool was due in July. Unfortuantely, on February 29, her little baby boy, Brenham Jay, was born. He only lived for 3 minutes before he went to live with our Father in Heaven. This is her blog and it tells the whole story. Now not only did she just loose her baby, she is having kidney problems. If everyone could pray for her and her family, it would be absolutely wonderful!
God Bless,
