Morning sickness?

What a stupid name for being sick while you're pregnant. Whoever made that up probably wasn't really pregnant. I am sick 100% of the day. Thank goodness it's not real bad all day long. My "morning" apparently is around 10-11 o'clock at night. Just as I am all comfy in bed my body decides to be sick. Last night was my first throw up, but I felt so much better after dinner wasn't in me anymore. So sad, because it was so delicious, although not so delicious on the way back up.

What is your remedy for "morning" sickness?

Best nurse EVER!

On Monday, Ryan took the NCLEX. The NCLEX is the test you have to take to get your license for nursing. I knew he wouldn't have a problem with it, but it's always stressful to take such a big exam. Anyway, we found out Tuesday evening that he passed! He is now Ryan Hone, RN. He is officially a nurse and he now gets a pay raise! WOO HOO!!! Way to go Ryan!!! We are so proud of you and all of your hard work. You are definitely my favorite nurse in the entire world.

It's 1:30 in the morning and Bella is having separation anxiety with Ryan working tonight. She cried in her bed for about an hour before I finally went and got her and decided to just work since she's not going to sleep. Little turd. I even had to show her that Ryan was gone and not in bed like she thought. Every noise she hears now, she thinks it's Ryan coming home. Maybe she can feel the changes in the air with babies on the way? She's probably just preparing me for many sleepless nights to come. Precious dog.

Two babies!

If you haven't read our Infertile Myrtle blog yet, you should know we found out today that we are expecting not 1, but 2 babies! The ultrasound was absolutely amazing. The doctor had a feeling we were having twins since my hCG level a few weeks ago was 958 (anything over 100 is positive). We were kind of expecting it too, but didn't want to get our hopes up. I mean, we would have been very pleased and happy with one, but two? Fabulous! This has been quite the journey so far and we are excited to see what the future holds for our little family. Seeing the heart beats today and seeing that this is all real was so amazing. We are so blessed and thankful for these 2 little beings!

How we celebrate....

Well, to commemorate our 5 years of being married, we decided to go to The Cottage at La Caille. I have always loved La Caille ever since I was in junior high. It's like a fantasy land right here in Utah. The Cottage did not disappoint. We walked into our cabin to a basket full of fruit and a bottle of La Caille's very own wine. I immediately dove into the grapes. We had a fridge full of beverages: Coke, Sprite, apple juice, and orange juice. We even had our own private hot tub. Since we are not rich like we wished we were, we opted to eat Blimpie instead of eating at La Caille. I would have loved to eat there but I'm pretty sure we would have had to give up our first born to do it. I ate so much fruit that it made me sick to my stomach so sleeping was a little nonexistent for me, but I was excited to be in a king-sized bed. I got mad at Ryan when his leg was touching me because the bed was so big that shouldn't be necessary. Wow, really? Like I said, I didn't feel real great. We woke up to ducks quacking and roosters cock-a-doodle-doing. The cook from the restaurant made us yummy breakfast. We both had omelets, fresh fruit, hot chocolate, OJ, and Ry had pancakes. I was impressed by the butter being shaped into roses. I didn't want to use it because it looked so cute! Breakfast was very delicious! I would recommend this to anybody who needs to celebrate something extra special in their lives.
