9 weeks


Wow I am feeling so amazed and blessed. I had an amazing US today even saw the feet and hands moving.. S/He was just a fluttering. I measured at 9w1d and the heartbeat was 178bpm. I am just amazed! The actual picture is upside down as they are stuck to the top of my uterus.

Beautiful Surprise

So my wonderful cousin Lara and her beautiful daughter Devon sent me these beautiful Roses yesterday! She was just wish me congratulations on the pregnancy. We come from a LARGE group of cousins but her dad and my dad are the 2 youngest kids so we are close compared to the large group that are a lot older then us. With that I am the 2nd of the 6 of us to be pregnant (she was the first LOL) so her family is just as excited for me as my family.

This night sickness is not fun at all. Last night was a really bad night. I took a phenergren and slept for 11hrs.. Yeah that was a long night LOL ! Oh and I haven't had hot water since Friday and that finally got fixed yesterday too. It was nice to have a long warm shower.

I can't believe tomorrow is 8 weeks. Time is going nicely fast. I don't want my pregnancy to go fast but I just want my husband to be home soon. Have a wonderful Thursday. XOXO

I miss my husband blues


I wouldn't say I have the "blues" but some days the emotions take over more then other days. I guess today is one of those. I guess it was writing out Tim's birthday card knowing that we wont be spending his 30th Birthday or my 29th Birthday together this year. He isn't a big party guy but it is the thought. He didn't even want anything as a gift but I sent him something anyways. When I get sad I get super lazy. I haven't folded laundry in over a week I just have a big pile of it on my love seat. I had to clean my kitchen today because I can't take it if anything smells bad even a little bit. The extra chores certainly suck big time. Picking up dog poop every Sunday is the worse. We live in a home that has professional lawn care... Which is so awesome for the next 6 months but sucks because they start complaining if the dog poop is not picked up every week. So I have to go out there and pick it up with our pooper scooper but it always stinks and that means I start gaging.. It is such a fun thing. Oh how I miss my husband. Sorry for the woe is me blog and I know so many other military wives have it so much worse I at least get to talk on the phone even for a small amount of time every day. I just miss him.

Tim's Birthday Package

Oh on another note my poor Meadow has the itchies... I took her to the vet today and she just has a skin allergy from the grass pollen, but she is on steroids for the next week and Benadryl I normally wouldn't have gotten the steroids but she is not enjoying the scratching and she is itching A LOT!!! She is such a momma's girl she wouldn't even let them take her back to be weighed without me. She is my sweet sweet baby!
My Sweet Meadow (Ignore the laundry basket in the background)

I have a new small but expensive addiction/craving I got some on Friday and ended up going back today and got a few more. I ended up buying some regular strawberries on Sunday at the commissary I think I would love to make a strawberry shortcake. That is one thing I will miss if I move from the south is the wonderful access to fruit. I got a cantaloupe, a pineapple, and I got 2lbs of strawberries for $4... They are so sweet too. So I hope the fruit will help with my sweet cravings. Sorry again about the woe is me post. I can only promise it wont be my last one for the next 6 months. XOXO

My expensive craving I have ALWAYS loved Godiva!

Perfect Little Bean


I have more pictures but this is the one I had emailed to myself. we couldn't hear the heartbeat but you could see it flicker right away and they measured it at 121bpm. Dr. S said everything for a 7week old looked perfect! Yolk Sac and everything. It is amazing to me still. I can't believe I am going to be a mom and we are going to have our Baby Smith! I go back in 2 weeks for the 9 week US. Thank you so much for all the love and support! XOXO

9pm morning sickness oh my

So I guess I am one of those... One of those that gets night time morning sickness. I don't know if the flu just triggered it but for the last 2 night at exactly 9pm I have heaved my guts out.. Sorry if that is TMI but if you have been here before I kind of always give TMI.. Last night was not so bad as I hadn't eaten much because of still recovering from Monday, but tonight was taco soup and oh my not as good coming up. Good thing or bad thing with my lap-band I don't throw up a lot I just kind of go threw the motions but there is always something that makes it threw. So anyways I am not enjoying this 9pm morning sickness.. I think it needs a new name especially when it isn't in the morning. Any thoughts?? Good night and sweet dreams anyways... XOXO

A brand new me...

OMG I had the worst stomach flu yesterday. Thank god for having phenegran because throwing up is not really good for me. My stomach just burned all day and I was constantly running to the bathroom. I felt horrible. Luckily Amanda's husband Rich brought over diet 7-up and saltines. I needed something. Well I still have my 2 special lurkers out there! :) I guess if you would like to stay private and keep reading about my life I can't be upset. I am just glad you enjoy what I have to say!
I sometimes think of myself as a not a very interesting blogger. I am so much more witty in real life. I have never been a good writer. My spelling is HORRIBLE! I decided to blog as I knew I wanted to be able to read what we had gone threw and maybe help some one else that is feeling the same.
I miss my husband every day he is away. I really could have used him yesterday to make me feel better. I felt so bad because I was so sick and he just wanted to talk to me for a little while. It is even harder with him working 12hr days. I know he will be busy and that will help it go by quickly tomorrow is one week down 23 to go!
Thank you to Jo and A who even though weren't my real lurkers or #5000 it was sweet of them to comment! XOXO

Well good night I am very lucky to have my furry babies to keep me company in my bed.
Good night ya'll!! XOXO

P.S. I would love to know who a few of you lurkers are! Especially the APO (military person) and the person from Ocean Springs, MS. If you would like to tell me in private my email is sarahjsmith51@gmail.com .

P.S.S. If you are the number 5000th visitor please let me know that too! It is the little things making me happy right now! :) Good night!

6 Weeks


Wow 6 weeks... I just can't believe it. I seemed to welcome in 6 weeks last night with some night time "morning sickness". I guess I am very glad for increasing hormones. I also am glad for being extremely tired 10pm doesn't come soon enough. Last time Tim was deployed insomnia took over. There is none of that this time.
He called me at midnight to let me know he is safe and done traveling for awhile.
It was strange our really good friends from Louisiana were PCSing to Germany on the same day Tim was leaving so they were on the same plane leaving the country. It was nice for them to get to visit with each other.. I wished I had realized they were going to be at BWI too because I might have hopped on a plane and gone up there just to spend a few extra hours with Tim and our friends. Well it didn't happen so oh well.
We have also kind of been talking about taking a Babymoon when he gets home since I will only be at 30 weeks... Things to think about and keep myself busy with. XOXO

A long night!


After 4 LONG hours in the ER because I pulled a muscle in my shoulder I got told to take tylenol and that my HCG is 4266... They did a trans vaginal and saw "something" but it is too early to be sure. Well it is 1:30am Good Night! XOXO
