10 weeks 2 days

I am sooooo excited to be into the double digits :) I am feeling so very blessed to have made it this far!!! We are less than two weeks from our goal of 12!!!  I have to admit this is the scariest thing I have ever done. It's hard to not get ahead of yourself and think about their delivery and HOPING and PRAYING I can get them as far as I can (even though it's really out of my hands). So I have to remind myself to take each day one day at a time and enjoy every moment of knowing right now everything is good! Everything has been good too!! I've not had any morning sickness (the two times I got sick, was so mild and drainage related), my blood pressure is stable, the sleepiness is wearing off, and if I do get tired I'm able to rest. My only complaints thus far have been my boobs are super sore and my hips ache after waking. I have been doing some light walking and stretching to work out the soreness. It's super weird not to have any children home during the day but it's awesome to be able to lay down when I need too!! I've not really having any food cravings although I am loving peaches with cottage cheese and the other day I was dying for fish sticks with malt vinegar. Fish sticks cracks me up because I haven't had those in years! Oh and let me just say they were great and the malt vinegar hit the spot, lol!

We managed to get our Christmas decorations/tree up last weekend. We didn't put out as many as we normally do but enough to make everything look festive.  I didn't want Riley to have to put up a ton of stuff by himself if I wasn't feeling well when the time came.  Honestly, I can't believe it's already December 6th. It feels like when I found out I was pregnant that time stopped and I've been a hase. We are so behind on Christmas shopping. Normally I am done but this year I will have Riley to help me! Riley's last day of work for the season is tomorrow (whooohooo) and we will have two weeks to ourselves until the kids get out of school!! We've got some shopping planned and some fun lunch reservations! We also have two doctor appointments, one the 13th and the next with the maternal specialist on the 18th . Hoping we get to see our babies!

I don't know how people go a full nine months and not find out the sex of the baby.  I wish I had a little window so I could see what they are RIGHT NOW! Lol!!! I keep having dreams I am having twin girls but I think it's because my good friend has twin girls and I see their pictures on FB. My MIL is dying too. We go into stores and swoon over all the cute little mary jane socks and pink/purple lovelys! Just a few more weeks and we will know something. I might need to put a poll up!! :)

All the kids are doing great! This weekend my MIL and I are taking Brit to go eat at the Cheesecake Factory and then some shopping. The plan is to eat dessert FIRST! Normally I make her a cute little outfit to wear for Christmas but I haven't had any time. So today while I was out I hit Old Navy and found her a pair of denim leggings and a pink sequin top (I got pink so she could wear her Hello Kitty pink glitter shoes). I'm loving Mr. Ben's Christmas list. He wants a purple Monster Truck (purple is his favorite color) and a new My Little Pony. He has so many ponies and it's a hoot to watch him play with them. He takes them in the car, for show-n-tell, sleeps with them in his pillow, puts them on the table beside him when he eats, and gives them a ton of kisses. He also has them carry on little conversations among all the ponies. Oh how I could bottle this up. It's adorable! I know he also won't always think ponies are so cool. He told me last night during tuck in that he has three babies in his tummy. Then he always wants to look in my mouth so he can see if the babies are coming out. I don't have the heart to tell him that it doesn't work that way! Brady is doing good too. He is in a running club sponsored by Nike at school. So far he has earned a metal and then a t-shirt! He's having some trouble at school doing a writing journal so I talked to his teacher about letting him bring it home. His problem is he is very technical (hands on, like building legos) but not creative with writing. So we sat down and worked on a writing web and then a paragraph about what he would want to talk about for his writing. His teacher wrote back and said he actually finished his work in class yesterday with the writing we did and that he was ready to publish his work and illustrate. He came home with such confidence!!

Lastly, I wanted to add. I've had lots of people ask me what I did to get pregnant. I have a long history of PCOS and not ovulating. Even on fertility drugs back in the day I didn't ovulate. Well, first I believe it was God breathed but I also believe Shaklee helped me! I had been reading articles on a product called Vivix helping PCOS and had even posted them on my FB wall. I started taking it in July (and honestly only 1/2 tsp opposed to the full tsp) as well as the Vitalizer vitamins. Well, in September I must have ovulated because as you know I am pregnant! I really believe it helped and I'm excited to share it because infertility is so devastating and maybe it can help someone else.
