Hired a doula. Decided to try the paleo diet. Getting some pregnancy workout DVDs. Researching cloth diapers with a friend in Florida who is going to try her hand at making some.

Ummmm... gonna buy a second car with my tax refund. And Isaac is gonna file for bankruptcy using his tax refund so we can stop some wage garnishment.

That's about it in haley-land.

Oh we find out the sex of the baby at our 17 week appointment hopefully. Only 2 weeks out!

I thought I was done with the puking business but since last night I have thrown up 3 times. Damn! So much for all of that easing off when you hit 12 weeks, huh?

I'm popping out much quicker than I did with Emmy. I still look mostly like I gained weight but myself an Isaac can tell that I am filling out and widening out down there. Looking forward to the bump actually looking like a bump with clothes on. And looking forward to wearing maternity shirts. All of my clothes fit poorly right now. I'm all lumpy.

I scheduled breakfast with my mom and sister this morning, intending on announcing my pregnancy now that I've hit 12 weeks and need to stop being a big ol' chicken.

We met at 9. The first thing she says to me after sitting down is "what is wrong with your face?"

This was a great opening, since I am currently covered in little purple spots called petechaie that are caused (in my case) by excessive and intense vomitting. I developed them last night after a particularly exciting vomiting episode.

Anyway, I tell her this and she looks at me and goes: "I already know".


I then look at my little sister (she's 18, and I told her soon after I found out and swore her to secrecy) who is looking at me sheepishly and then busts out with "she made me tell her!".

Turns out, my mother has known since my sister came home from school over winter break. So... mid December? So I've been hiding this from her for a month and neither of them thought they should tell me that she knew. My sister was afraid I would be mad (I'm not) and my mom wanted me to tell her personally (which is fair, I guess).

On the plus side, since she had all this time to think about it she appears to have coem around to the idea. And I think she also thinks it is a boy (damn! that's 4 who think boy and only 1 who thinks girl!) because she kept suggesting boy names to me.

She is also going to "handle" telling my stepfather, who may or may not be unhappy. He's really hard to read.

So.... tonight I plan on telling my dad and step mom. We are going to red lobster (and I am seriously hoping my nausea goes away by then because I HATE fish and the smell is NOT going to improve amtters any) for her birthday and my step sister thinks it is a good time to tell her. She isn't gonna let me chicken out.

Isaac thinks his mom already knows, since we told his brother. He's in the marines (boot camp, actually) and Isaac sent him a letter with the u/s pic but didn't tell him to NOT tell him mom, since he planned on telling her at xmas. Wellll that didn't happen. So he needs to just come out and say it already.

Assuming I don't chicken out telling my dad I will be announcing on facebook on Monday, after I have my NT scan. I'm excited about that, since I don't give a hoot if anyone on there judges me... lol.

Anyway... just had to share. It's been an interesting day and it's not even noon yet!

Side note: I hate buying my step mother presents. She stays at home all day, either in bed watching TV (and by TV I mean soaps, keeping up with the kardashians and the like) or on the computer playing pogo.com or facebook games. She doesn't read. Doesn't watch movies. Doesn't ever leave the effing house... lol. She is impossible to shop for. Impossible.

This pregnancy is utterly uneventful, aside from my awful all-day-dont-you-dare-call-it-morning-sickness which has tapered off in the last few days.

We still haven't told my family, BTW. I chickened out. But we did tell his dad and he was so in shock he stared at the ultrasound photo we stuck to his Xmas card for like 10 mins. LOL.

In other news.. weaning Emmy. She hasn't nursed in 48 hours. She gets pissed when I tell her no but overall she's okay with it. I'm sad... but happy because I was almost totally dried up and her attempting to get milk out involved teeth. OUCH.

I like Thanksgiving. This year has been good because I'm not too nauseous. But my boobs are absolutely killing me. Twingy as hell.

I really just want to go home and go to bed. I'm at my moms. Emmy is with Isaac at his dad's.

I have nothing else to report. I'm tired and stuffed like a turkey.

I miss Isaac.

Someone, shoot me.

I guess I'll stop being lazy and update.

For starters, I've been a mess. Depressed, suicidal, the whole nine yards. I spent a week in a psych ward. It wasn't too bad. I missed Ember a lot but I think being away from her and focusing on myself was a good idea. That was back in January. I promptly quit my job when I got out, which made sense at the time but now I'm regretting it.

I applied, tested, and interviewed for nursing school. I find out hopefully this month or the next if I get in.

I have boy drama. Shocking, right? I'm seeing Steve who is 41, a nurse, and who I REALLY like. But for a while I was bouncing around between him and another nurse who is 39 named Rob. They're total polar opposites which was why I was having a hard time "choosing". Rob has a baby that is less than a month younger than Ember. Steve has a girl friend in Thailand. Drama.

Ember has two bottom teeth. She's trying her damndest to crawl and has the army crawl down. She's pretty mobile and we're going to have to get a baby gate, stat. She can roll like a pro and I think the reason she isn't crawling yet is because she finds it so easy to get around by rolling.

She has hair now, too. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if you arent on my facebook you need to be so you can see pictures of her. Lol.

that was her contribution to this post. haha.

I know I suck at updating. Sorry. Between work and Ember a lot of the times I don't even get online all day long, and when I do it isn't long enough to update.

So I guess a recap of the last however many weeks it has been.

I'm still not eating dairy. Ember hasn't been congested, hasn't been spitting up too much (she does it every few days, not sure why) and has been a pretty good baby. I also haven't had any migraines and I think the no-dairy thing is the reason. I did some research and apparently dairy is thought to be an underlying cause of migraine headaches. I miss cheese like you wouldn't believe though.

Em will be 10 weeks on Saturday. She just had her 2 month appointment and she is 12 lbs even, 23.5 inches long. She's well above average for height and weight according to my pediatricians statistics (he showed me a nifty graph which had her stats on it and how she compared to other babies her age in their very LARGE practice). The shots SUCKED she screamed her head off while being jabbed but was fine afterward. She was a bit fussy the rest of the day and has been sleeping a lot since (this was on Tuesday).

She smiles all the time now. She smiles a lot at the boob, when I tickle her belly and feet, and when I tap her nose. She holds herself upright while being held and only slumps when sleepy.

Sleeping has been fine. She rarely wakes up before I'm ready to be awake and I don't even know how many times a night she wakes up anymore since I usually just sleepily pop out a boob, she latches on, and back to sleep I go.

As far as my life goes... work SUCKS. Betsy (my store manager) is on my ass for absolutely everything. I have applied for a job at a hospital as a housekeeper. Not glamorous at ALL but it pays 11 an hour (I make 9 now), it's from 2:15p to 10:45p and full time with benefits. And it's about 15 minutes closer to my house. I've been waiting on the CEO of the hospital to sign my hire packet before Logan (the Plant Operations Manager) will tell me I have a job. And since he was out of town from when I interviewed last Thursday until Tuesday, he hasn't done it yet. I guess staffing the housekeeping department isn't his biggest priority. I'm looking forward to Betsy's reaction when I put in my 2 weeks though. I hope to do it tomorrow.

Isaac is in the process of moving out of Kristen's house. He doesn't want to move from her house to mine (can't handle the change or something retarded like that) so he's going to move into his dad's for a while. They aren't officially broken up but both have stated they will not be together when he moves out. I hope she means that shit because he's still hung up on the whole not gonna break her heart crap. Hopefully he will be moved in with us by January. Though I'm really hoping he will be here for Christmas.

Shit. That reminds me. If I get a job at that hospital I will likely be working on Christmas... poo. :( Oh well. Time and a half FTW, right?

Anyway, he's also STILL jobless. But who the hell wants to hire someone who has no college education and who was just FIRED when they have plenty of other desperate and qualified people looking for jobs? Ugh.

I'm still broke. I finally cracked and asked Rand for help. He's giving me $250 on Friday. Thank god. I'll be able to pay my car payment (car almost got repossessed last week... long story and I don't want to get into it at the moment) pay my car insurance (which was due on the 2nd and canceled by the company today) and my tags (expire on the 15th) and buy some food.

I'm going to give cloth diapering Ember a trial run. I applied at miraclediapers.org and got accepted. Dad agreed this would be a good way for me to try cloth without spending a fortune so no big deal if it doesn't work out.

Okay... bed time. Emmy has been asleep for an hour and I don't want her to wake up early tomorrow if I'm not ready.

I've been missing updates so I'm sorry if anything major has happened and I haven't commented. I just don't have time to sift through my friends page anymore. Boo.

So, er, first time having sex pp (5 weeks, 3 days pp and doctor told my 5 weeks!).

OMG it HURT. The stitches are all gone I think but the area was still tender. But it felt like all the areas that ripped were being pulled apart. At first, anyway. And after. Inbetween it was fine. More than fine, actually, but I doubt you want those details.

I have my 6 week checkup appointment on Friday. I'm contemplating either the paragaurd or the mirena IUD.

I start work on Monday.


Ember has been a bit of a handful lately so I haven't been on anything but facebook. It's hard to type when your hands are full of baby! Haha.

I have been reading everyone's LJs though (although I'm sure I've missed a few entries) so don't think I'm ignoring you all! Ember's sleeping schedule is getting a bit better (sleeps more at night during the day and takes a hourish long naps) so hopefully once she settles down I will be able to comment and update more!

Post two truths and a lie about yourself as an answer to Writer's Block. Have people guess which is the lie in the comments.

1. I went to school for massage therapy.
2. I love the smell of comet.
3. I read a lot of true crime books.
