BIG News!!!!!


Yup, I'm pregnant! I am about 13 or 14 weeks. My due date is end of March or early April and Toby and I can't be happier. Cason's happy too he's just not sure why :)!

I found out really early (like when I was 2 or 3 weeks pregnant) because I was supposed to be having tests run on my gallbladder. I had one blood pregnancy test but it came back negative so my Dr. scheduled me to have some kind of nuclear test on my gallbladder. He ordered another preg. test JUST to be sure. So I went in to have the test. It was early in the morning, I was fasting, and I REALLY needed caffeine. The nurse called me back to a room with all this equipment to begin my test. She started asking all the general questions:
Nurse: "When was the date of your last period?" Me: June whatever...
Nurse: "Are you on birth control?" Me: no
Nurse: "Are you trying to get pregnant" Me: Not really
Nurse: "There is no, not really, you either are or your not"
Me: "I guess there could be a REALLY small chance, like 2%, that I am pregnant.
But I know my body and I'm not pregnant."
Nurse: "Well we are going to have to postpone this test and when you start your
period you can come back"
Me: "I'm not coming back, we are going to do this today, I have paid for childcare. How come I can't take a pregnancy test to prove to you that I'm not pregnant?"

FINALLY after talking to her supervisor she took me to the lab to have a pregnancy test. A few minutes later some other nurse came and took me to another room where there was just a chair.

Nurse: "Well your pregnant"
Me: "WHAT?!?!?!? Are you serious?! How accurate is this pregnancy test?"
Nurse: "98% accurate mam"
Me: "Soooooo, there's a 2% percent chance it's a false positive?"
Nurse: "Well... yes but that's unlikely"

I didn't think I was pregnant at all! I guess the next time I shouldn't be so hard headed about these things. It was a surprise but a really good one! We can't wait to meet him/her!

Dallas World Aquarium

So it's been awhile since I have blogged. I have all these pictures of our summer that I want to post but they will have to wait b/c I want to share these first!
On Sat. morning Toby, Cason and I visited the Dallas World Aquarium. I have been there MANY times on field trips and on the weekends but this was by far the most enjoyable. Mainly because I was there with my family but also because hardly anyone else was there. It was perfect! Enjoy the pictures!

Cason's favorite part was running, running, and more running
