So dispite deciding to wait to start TTC next April/May, were PREGNANT!! A little bit of a surprise and not an oops as Jeff would call it. I go for my initial appointment with my family doctor tomorrow for blood work, to get a pregnancy vitamins and to get a referral to a midwife.

I almost still don't believe it and I starting spotting brown today. So I'm not totally sure what to think at this point.

I called my doctors office for reassurance and she moved my appointment from Friday to Thursday morning and suggested I relax today and keep my feel up. I have tried to do both as much as possible.

So once we have our appointment tomorrow and verify things with the doctor I am telling my mom, sister and grandmother, probably on Friday. Sometime next week we will have to go visit Jeff's parents to give them the good news. They are all going to be so excited.

The room I am currently sitting in will be the future nursary. I can't wait!!!

I'm in someone else's body

So needless to say I have kind of let things go in the way of my healthy eating and exercising since my wedding last November. I feel like I am trapped in someone else's body. My clothes don't feel right (well the one's that still fit) and I'm not confortable in most of my underwear.

I have been trying to get back in to is since the beginning of May, but with the move and all I haven't made the time. So far this week I have gone to do cardio yesterday and today and I have a training appointment tomorrow. I think my goal for this week is to track what I am eating even if I go over my calories, so I can see where I am, try to get at least 30 mins of some for of exercise per day and try to drink at least 8 cups of water per day.

I just want to feel like me again and be able to wear my summer clothes (I can't even get any of the shorts or capri's all the way up let alone done up) that looked so great on me last summer.


Our move to the townhouse

So I realize that we moved a week ago and I am just blogging about it, but hey better late than never.

This move went much smoother than the move to our apartment. This were more organized and we had a bigger truck and got everything moved over in one shot. I have completely unpacked the kitchen, both bathrooms and parts of our master bedroom. The computer desk and computer are set up in the computer room and the rest is still in box's. The spareroom which is housing my sister furniture until she goes back to university in the fall is not unpacked at all, but my mom is coming to help me with that this week. So my tasks for tomorrow are to unpack and put away all the stuff for the china cabinent, unpack my clothes and stuff in the bedroom and organize all of our movies, CD's and DVD's and well as organizing the three storage cupboards in the basement.

I also have to going to the gym for my trainer appointment and possibly go to the Young Adults group at the church with Jeff.

I can't get wanting a baby out of my head!!

So Jeff and I have been talking about babies and when we want to start TTC. Currently his position at work is contract and the contract ends next April, so we want to make sure he is full time before we go ahead. Jeff also wants to go on at least two more vacations before we start TTC. One of those vacations will likely be our one year anniversary trip in Oct/Nov of this year and the other in April of next year with our friends who are getting married this September. But how do I make the wanting stop. It makes me totally crazy and I have not been very careful with our fertility charting because of how crazy it is making me.

So my questions is what do I do in the mean time to make this incessant wanting stop?? If it doesn't I'm either going to end up pregnant early or go completely mental and have to be admitted to a psych ward.
