Louisburg Cider Mill

 Sunday my mom, Debbie, Kelly, Stephanie, Kaden, Brooks, and I all headed to the Louisburg Cider Mill.  They were having a weekend festival with a lot of venders selling different things, a live country band, pumpkins, doughnuts, and of course cider!  The weather was great perfect and I got to snap some photos so enjoy!



Making kettle corn..........................a ton of apples!

Still feeling good so far and no morning sickness yet! Keep your fingers crossed I skip it!  Unfortunately I don't go back to the doctor until October 28th which seems like forever away so you'll have to wait till then for another baby update!

Bye bye 10 weeks...hello again 7 weeks!

I had my second doctors appointment today and we met our actual doctor.  She is awesome! She is so happy and bubbly and made me feel extremely comfortable.  I'm already so happy with my decision to go with her!
When we went in to the appointment we all thought I was 10 1/2 weeks so the purpose of this appointment was to listen for the heart beat.  So after talking with the dr. she said we would try and listen and if we didn't hear anything we would have an ultrasound for my piece of mind :)  
She listened and didn't hear anything so we moved over to the ultrasound room.  She started looking for the baby and saw it "over in the corner" but she wasn't familiar with machine so she had to go grab the tech to make the screen bigger!  So she came in and found the baby right away and we could see the little heart beat.  However the dr. said it was really small for 10 weeks so after figuring out it was because of my crazy cycle that is never on time she put me at 7 1/2 weeks and moved my due date to May 9th!
It was so amazing to see that little picture on the screen.  Of course I cried...but it made it so real to see it up there!  Brett was pretty amazed as well :)
We go back in 5 weeks (October 28) for another ultrasound and some prenatal testing so please pray the results  come out good.

Well there baby Temple is! Doesn't look anything remotely close to a baby!
My dr. kept saying, "it's so cute!" lol

iPhoto Booth with Kaden!

Kaden gets a kick out the iPhoto Booth on my computer so I thought it would be fun to share!














Kaden came over on Sunday and he wanted to watch the "Wizard of Oz" and I had homework so when I came out to see how they where doing this is how I found them :)



I'm getting so excited for Thursday! Can't wait to hear the heart beat...keep your fingers crossed that we do!

We're Pregnant!


I still can't believe it. I'm pregnant...it's crazy! Here's how we found out.  I had a sneaking suspicion that I was pregnant, I could just tell.  Brett however was convinced that I wasn't so without him knowing I bought a pregnancy test.  I didn't tell him because he was so sure that I wasn't and I knew he would be mad at me for wasting money on something "I didn't need."  So Wednesday (Aug 25th) I took the test.  This test was one with "--" or "+" sign.  Well I took it and I could sort of see a plus sign but not well enough to confirm.  So Thursday (Aug 26th) I bought the E.P.T digital ones.  That night Brett was on the couch watching a movie and I was in the computer room working on photos (story of my life ;)) when I snuck into the bathroom to take the test.  I set the test on our hamper and while it was coming up with your results it flashes a little hour-glass.  So I went to the trash in the kitchen to throw away the wrapper.  When I came back in place of the hour-glass was "Pregnant."  My hand immediately went over my mouth and my heart rate took off.  I started laughing and I picked it up and walked toward the living room. With my hand still over my mouth and me still laughing and holding the test in my other hand Brett looks at me...

Brett, "what's wrong."
I continue to laugh and not answer.
Brett (sees the test in my hand), "what is that?"
Me, "I'm pregnant."
Brett, "your joking right?" he walked over to me.
Me, "does this feel like I'm joking?" I put his hand over my heart since it was pounding and than I showed him the test.
He started laughing and I started crying.

After that we had some long talks and than went to bed lol.  I took another test in the morning just to make sure and it also came out positive!  

We didn't tell our families until Sunday (Aug 29th), except I had already told my sisters because they knew that I thought I was and their reaction was priceless!  I would have told my mom next but she was out of town and I really wanted to tell her in person so that's what we planned on but when I saw my dad on Sunday I couldn't hold it in.  That night we were eating at Brett's moms house so since we had told my dad we thought we should tell family.  So while everyone was sitting on the floor around Kaden and Brooks I tried to get Kaden to announce that "aunt Amber's having a baby" but he wasn't wanting to share :) So while everyone is staring at me waiting for the secret I just told them instead!  They were so excited, yells and tears of joy ensued and it was perfect.  Of course now I had to call my mom because I felt bad that everyone knew expect her.  I called and told her and she was excited, mad because I didn't tell her first but excited :)  We told Brett's grandparents that night as well and my grandparents and a couple of close aunts, uncles, and cousins.  It was a fun day.

We planned on keeping it in from everyone else until after my 1st trimester but it's so hard to hold it in!  I had even told Tyler the KUStores UPS man!  So I decided after my 1st doctors appointment we would make the "facebook announcement."

I had my first appointment yesterday (Sept 17th) and it went great.  She tried to listen for a heartbeat but it's still pretty early so I go back on Thursday to try again!

I'm so excited for our future.  So far in the pregnancy I feel amazing.  No morning sickness (knock on wood) and no nausea.  I'm just tired a lot but other than that I feel great.  I am so thankful that Brett and I are in Lawrence for our 1st baby and that the majority of our family will be here with us.  I feel so blessed to have such an amazing husband, family, and friends who are so excited for us.  We feel very loved and lucky.   I'll be updating on here all the time about doctors visits and my growing bump!

That's it! I'm pregnant!!
