I'm Pregnant

After just a couple of months trying for our second child, we have succeeded.  I'm six weeks pregnant, but haven't announced it to family yet.  My ultrasound is on August 5.  The doctor wants to measure the baby and find the heartbeat.  My estimated due date is 3/19/14.  I don't want to say anything to too many people until I feel confidant about the pregnancy, which should be after the ultrasound appointment.  Since no one in my family reads this blog, I decided to announce it here for now so I can get it off my chest.  I don't want to slip up and have everyone and their mother know within two nano seconds.

Carleigh is excited and she tells me she hopes it's a baby sister.  When I asked her if she would be okay with a baby brother, she said yes.  So it doesn't really matter to her, she just wants a little sibling.  After preschool every day, Carleigh wants to look inside the infant room and see what the babies are doing now.  It's really cute.

This pregnancy is starting out easy for me like Carleigh's did.  No morning sickness or nausea yet.  I've only had sore breasts, headaches, slight cramping, and some gas.  There are times when my lower back hurts too.  The only thing that really bothers me are the headaches.  I've cut out all caffeine.  No more morning cup of coffee.  I just don't want that much caffeine in my body.  We do have green tea bags at work and I'll probably brew some of that in the mornings to replace my coffee ritual.

There is no excitement going on in Las Vegas.  At least not in my world.  It's a little bit cooler, but now the humidity levels are up because of monsoon season.  I'm really looking forward to fall.  I want the A/C off and fresh air blowing throughout the entire house.  We are about two months away from that...

Getting Off My Lazy Butt

My blog has lacked an update or two over the last few weeks.  I've been meaning to blog, but never got around to it.  Naughty me.

Family was in town two weeks ago, but they are now gone and back at their own houses.  It was a busy two weekends with family.  I'm glad it's over.  The weekend my parent's were here, it was 117 degrees on Saturday & Sunday.  The entire valley was under an excessive heat warning, so we stayed indoors all day.  We had food delivered for lunch and dinner.  It was awful.  Carleigh received her power wheel ATV on that Saturday, but in the evening when it was "only" 110 degrees.  She rode it around for about 10 minutes but her face was getting red, so we parked it in the garage and she went back inside the house.

The temperatures have dropped back down to their normal range for Las Vegas.  Today was around 101 degrees.  We go outdoors in the evening to enjoy the weather and let Carleigh play with the neighborhood kid's.  She can also enjoy her power wheel too.

Work is the same old thing.  We are slow.  Guess people aren't really buying houses or refinancing much after the slight rise in interest rates.  I still have enough to keep me busy since I am cross-trained in three different jobs.  My friend & I go to the Farmer's Market every Friday on lunch since it's right around the corner from the office.  That's the only thing I look forward to at work most weeks now.  I'll be making blueberry muffins with all of the blueberries I purchased yesterday.

On Wednesday, I had my one month Lasik check up.  I'm seeing 20/15 in both eyes which is fantastic.  My right eye is experiencing a little bit of dryness, but that could be from our hot, dry climate.  There was also smoke in our air from the Carpenter 1 fire on Mount Charleston last week.  It was really bad.  The dryness isn't that bad though.  I just need to add a couple eye drops in my right eye and it's better.  My next appointment isn't until September.

And last, but not least, I recently received my Sunkissed VoxBox from Influenster.  I will be going through everything in there one by one and doing some reviews on my blog.  It would be nice to actually get one or two reviews done tomorrow.  I have BB Cream and nail polish in there with a few others.  Those two items will be the easiest for me to review.

I look forward to updating in between baking my blueberry muffins and painting my nails.
