A Little Stress To Go With The Good....

It has been forever I know and I apologize. I don't know why I've not been on much. Tons of distractions in such a quiet way of life I suppose. Every time I hop on here, I'm on for exactly 4 minutes and 27 seconds and then something happens to where not all my e-mail gets read and I leave a page up and come back to a husband or father upon the computer in my place. Good luck on getting back on ha ha.
Let's see...Update time...Hannah. Oi vay! My darling daughter whom I love soo much. We are battling right now and it's just loads of fun, ha ha. For some reason she has regressed on her potty training. When we got here she was completely out of diapers, even at night time. Well now all of a sudden (well within a few days ago) she has begun to pee herself and pee the bed at night. Last night she actually didn't pee the bed which I'm excited and so far today, no pee accidents. It's just so odd...And our temper tantrums in public have gotten so bad I refuse to take her out. It's like she used to be this great little girl to take out with me and now if one thing sets her off oh boy howdy watch out! Screaming at the top of our lungs and freaking out. Yeah loads of fun...So I leave her at home and avoid it. But for everything else, she's doing really well. We're working on her colors and shapes right now and she's sort of getting the hang of it. She loves yellow I've learned. I hate yellow, ha ha.
Abel. Well, he's doing well just going crazy out of boredom. He's one of those guys who has to work and be outside and if he isn't doing one or the other than he gets cranky. He hates not working. But he got great news and ended up passing the interview process and now has a physical tomorrow and then an abilities test next week over in Fargo which he'll have no problem with. He basically has the job so he's a bit better to deal with. His last boss had him brainwashed into never using unemployment and they always get laid off during the winter. We'd be broke and barely any food or money and so our parents would begin helping us out for the wintertime. It was hard. Well, we got over here and my dad told Abel he's been paying into unemployment, and to collect from November of 2008 until he gets this job and begins getting a paycheck. We need money and he won't get a paycheck until like March. So Abel put in for it and got accepted and will be receiving unemployment benefits for about a month or two. He hates doing it but when you have no money and no other options...His last boss wasn't a very nice boss at all so I have resentment built up mega load for him and am so glad to be gone from that place. Log building was something Abel loved but he was making so little and never got any benefits or anything so it was a horrible job. We're very blessed to have him getting this railroad job.
Me and baby are doing great which is such a shock! I'm not used to being 10 1/2 weeks along and still no cramps or any troubles. I'm waiting for the ground to fall out under me in a way because I'm scared I'll be at ease with everything and then WAM! when I'm not expecting it you know? But I had an ultrasound last week that showed baby moving around already. Great heartbeat, it was 170 already. And the egg sac was a perfect circle. Which even with Hannah, I never had a baby with a perfect egg sac. It's always been kidney bean shaped. My heart is starting to act up on me, getting all tacchy on me but Dr isn't worried, he said he knows why it is acting this way and he'll be putting me on medication soon. As with the gestational diabetes. I have a few more weeks of eating whatever I want and then I get to begin testing my blood 4 times a day and doing the meal plan. I hate counting carbs...Let's see..Due date is August 20th. I had some issues with the nurses in the hospital here already so I have requested to be induced in Bismarck and deliver there. This hospital sucks and is not equipped to handle any sort of emergency with a baby so that scares me alone. My doctor is awesome and knows exactly what is going on and has dealt with my case thousands of times which put me immediately at ease. I don't regret coming here at all. I'm 10 weeks a 4days so far like I said before. The dreaded 11th week is only 3 more days away. Dr. Lindemann says not to worry he seriously doubts anything will happen. He says that with all my other miscarriages, the fetus had stopped growing at 7 or 8 weeks each time and then I miscarried at 11 weeks, not that the baby died at 11 weeks, that's just when my body discharged the baby. So he said there is no reason to worry. It gives me great relief, let me tell you what! So I thank you all for your prayers. That's exactly what is getting the baby and me through this. Prayer.
I still have morning sickness at night and first thing in the morning. If I eat right away in the morning I'm fine and as long as I eat right before going to sleep I'm usually good too. I began this pregnancy at 160m I'm not scared to report. But I have yet to gain any weight. I'm eating every two hours at least and eating all kinds of junk too and yet nothing. I had that nasty stomach bug and lost 9 pounds so that's why I'm desperate to put on weight. That and I want a huge baby belly! With Hannah, I carried her in the back because my uterus is flopped backwards, so I never showed with her. I got wide but that was it. The day I delivered, I looked like I was maybe 6 months along if that. I'm already showing with this one and I want to get bigger out front and actually carry in the front this time! LoL. I love baby bellies.
And that's pretty much it right now. All caught up. Forgive me for not e-mailing some of you. This is faster and I don't get much time during the day to write. You should hear my mom yell at me, ha ha. Ugh, I turned 24 a few days ago. I don't feel different, just weird. I hate the thought of getting older with nothing to show for it you know? I have yet to do anything wild and crazy! But with Abel getting this job, I told him me and my bestie, Shayla were taking a trip somewhere with no kids or hubbies and we're doing something wild. We're talking about New York. I'm totally excited!
I hope everyone else is doing well. I have 9 more weeks untilw e find out what we're having. I'm hoping for a girl and Abel is hoping for a boy. I'm almost positive we're having a boy. Ugh...LoL. I've dealt with my little girl for 2 1/2 years already! What the crap am I going to do with a penis!?!?! LoL. I've picked out two girl names that now I'm not so sure if I'm still crazy about them or not. Analeigh (pronounced Awna-lee) or Jayleigh. They are totally rare and not out there often but really unique and I like unique but then again, as I'm Jewish and as are my children, they sort of need a name with Hebrew background. I've got plenty of time ahead of me, you will so be hearing thousands of names, haha.
Anyhow, the UPS man just came and dropped off Hannah's new bike. I'm off to go put it together! Yay!! Wish me luck and I shall be on more often! Love to all!!

Becky, it was so good to finally hear from you! Sounds like the baby is growing well!

And good for Abel getting a job with the railroad! That's more of a career than just a job!

Maybe Hannah is acting up because of the move, being in a new place, etc?

Justine :o )

Hi Becky! Sound like things are going good with the baby! Glad to hear it! I just hope the morning sickness goes away! I had it for 9 months both times!
As for you four year old I went through that with Gianna my almost 3 year old and really the worse thing you can do is not take her anywhere becuase that's getting her way. I was afraid to take Gianna out too for a long time but I realized I was making things worse.!
