Bright Spots

So for all of you have read my last post (HERE) you know Dan and I are expecting a little bundle of joy in July.
Today marks the 1st day of my 2nd trimester! 
Hopefully this means the queasy stomach and nauseousness is over!

One of the bright spots in my time of queasy stomach and nauseousness was receiving my #violetvoxbox from Influenster!

Here is what I received in my vox box:

I about devoured my Cranberry SOYJOY bar! I have found that I absolutely love these little gems.
I also received Not Your Mother's Clean Freak: Refreshing Dry Shampoo (Great for those morning that I couldn;t quite drag myself out of bed in time to wash my hair.
The Goody Athletique Headband is a great headband that stays in place but doesn't squeeze the ever loving crap out of your head.
I have yet to try my Montagne Jeunesse Clay mask or the Sally Hansen New Triple Shine. I have not obviously felt like inhaling nail polish fumes, but Sally Hansen is one of my favorite brands of nail polish so I am guessing this one will not disapoint!
I have also used Montagne Jeunesse products in the past and have loved them! I plan on using it in the next week or so.... maybe it will help with the Pregnancy Acne.

Sick as a Dog....

 I know I haven't really posted anything meaningful since the 5th of November.
If you are friends with me on Facebook, you will already now why I haven't been posting.
I have been sick.
You know waking up in the morning with nausea and a very upset tummy. I have had major heart burn and also been exhausted.
Any guesses as to what is ailing me?

....
.....

You got it Dan and I are expecting a little bundle of joy towards the beginning of July 2014.


 This is how it went down....
November 3rd.
With the time change I woke up Sunday morning at what should have been 5am but is now 4 am having to pee really badly. 
(I am sorry if this is to much information, but hey)
Oh I have also forgot to mention that I umm haven't yet been visited by Aunt Flow this month? ...
So I grabbed a Red Solo Cup from the kitchen, by the way have you ever tried to pee on a damn stick?
 I would say this is nearly impossible.... So hence the Red Solo Cup. 
Anyways I digress.... 

I took an EPT test and this was the result:
 If you like my in-laws can't see what that black line says... let me clarify it for you: PREGNANT!

We told our Parents and then, we ended up posting the picture on Facebook.

This is our first ultrasound picture.
I had the ultrasound done today, it is one of the Top 10 experiences in my life so far. I got to see the the heart beat (my baby's little heart beat was going at about 184 beats a minute!)  We were officially told that our due date is July 7th!
