Miss Lillian Had A Birthday

My baby girl had a birthday.... (umm... in August). Anyway, she's just as crazy, if not crazier than when we first got her. Girlfriend does need some obedience classes though. How do I describe Lily... Hmmm.. Hyper is the first thing that comes to mind. She's hyper practically 24/7. It never stops. That's why I love her best when she's sleepy. She does a 180, and turns into a completely different dog. She's snuggles and cuddles and is just so sweet. She wants to be near you at all times. Sleeps under the covers just like she did when she was a little puppers. She is a little bit of a scardy-cat. Has a little bit of separation anxiety. I don't know where she got that, but she's always been like that. She throws a fit if I need to take Gizmo somewhere and leave her alone. Like it's the end of the world.

Husband surprised me with this cute little thing for my birthday/anniversary present last year.

I mean, is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen?

Sorry for the half naked picture of Husband, but look how little she was!

This is what happens when you give her any kind of authority. She listens, but she looks like she's in trouble. She gives you THIS face.

Or this... She just flips over onto her back. She's so weird.

And this is our baby girl now. She's stayed pretty small. Did you know she has a 12 pack of abs? no joke. I wish she would stay still enough for me to get a picture of that. It's so funny.

We lost it. I miscarried last week. I was only 5 weeks along. I'm ok. We'll try again.

Guess What?!

We're pregnant!!! Yes, we were trying. No, we didn't really tell anyone because we did not expect it to actually happen our first month of TTC! We really got lucky. I wasn't even charting. We found out last Saturday (10/24). We were shocked! I just had this feeling that I needed to take a pregnancy test. I was feeling extremely bloated and a little crampy, almost PMS-y, but yet I get AF on the 24th, and there was no sign of here (no spotting like usual or anything). We had a Halloween party to go to and I just didn't feel right going and possibly drinking if I didn't take a pregnancy test first. So I headed out to the store and bought the First Response test. I really wasn't expecting it to be positive, but right away two little lines showed up. I told Husband, "'s positive...." I think we both about had a heart attack. haha! So I took the other two in the box, just to make sure. Yep, we're pregnant! By the end of the night it sunk in and the shock was replaced by happiness!

I had my doctor's appointment on Friday (10/30), and everything looks great! My doctor is the "Steve Irwin of babies" as my friend puts it, and oh my god is she right! This guy is just SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!! He has a LOT of energy and talks really fast!!!!!!! ( put those exclamation marks there for a reason). I was a little overwhelmed by his excitedness, but he's pretty awesome and I'll get used to it. ha!

So... here's my first of these!
How far along? Just going into my 5th week!
Total weight gain/loss? None so far.
Maternity cloths? None yet, but I can't wait to wear them for some reason...
Stretch marks? None yet, but not looking forward to this.
Sleep? I've been really tired, going to bed about an hour earlier, but waking up about an hour earlier too.
Best moment last week? Finding out I am pregnant, duh! And the doctor's appointment. They gave me an ultrasound and I got to see my little dot! It's just the sac, but still. At least there is SOMETHING in my uterus floating around. :)
Movement? nope, just gas, but can't wait!
Food cravings? Taco Bell :/
Gender? Obviously we don't know yet. I had a dream last night it was a girl though. :)
Labor signs? Obvioulsy none of those.
Belly button in or out? Innie and I hope it stays that way.
What I miss? Beer
What I am looking forward to? Everything! My next ultrasound in 2 weeks where we'll actually be able to see our little Nugget, getting out of the 1st Tri, Bump, Kicks, and all the fun stuff that is to come! I'm feeling very impatient actually. Let's get this party started!
