Coming up....

So we have 3 months and 5 days till the wedding. We are so damn excited. Excited to get married and excited to just well get it over with. The planning and all the different places we had to visit. So exhausting. Can't wait to just go on our honeymoon and come home and be husband and wife. Saturday we will be cake testing and getting the dresses for the junior bridesmaid and the flower girl so that should be exciting.

I put our engagement picture up in my profile I hope you all like it. Weddings are frustrating because there are so many people I want to invite yet can't cause we just don't have that much money. Barely have enough to cover who we have coming now. So if you want you can throw some our way!!!!

So yeah that's it just thought I would update any of you that care about the wedding. My dress, veil and tiara are in. The photographer is hired, so is the dj. We have our ceremomy pretty much written we just need to get the cake ordered and get the invites printed and sent out. Ahhhhhhhhhh Stress!!!!!!

On Thursday the 11th I walk into my OB clinic and Rob is sitting there, he doesn't look to happy. Turns out the ultrasound tech didn't show that day so we were unable to get our ultasound. After some tears we were able to get the ultrasound the next day at 4pm at another clinic.

Fast forward to Friday at 4pm. I was so excited, my stomach was so up and down I lost my lunch....literally. But once I was laying down with that warm gel on my tummy and seeing our beautiful baby I was on cloud 9. She started at the head and we got a lot of wonderful profile pictures. Then she moved down to the tummy and heart etc. taking measurments, the suspense was killing me yet I loved taking everything in, knowing that the heart was functioning perfectly and everything was right where it is suppose to be. 10 fingers, 10 toes the umbilical cord is perfect. So we get to the between the legs shot and turns out the umbilical cord is also between the legs so she pokes around on that side for a bit and the baby moves and sure enough she says "It's a boy!" Both Rob and I questioned here asking if she was sure and she pointed out all the little boy parts. I of course started crying once again, we were both shocked because we thought for sure we were having a girl.

I think when so many people tell you that you are going to have a girl you start to believe it yourself. So anyways we are almost done with the ultrasound a hour later, I think she felt bad that she got us in late plus what happened at the other clinic so she didn't rush it. Which was so sweet of her. Then we get to measuring my cervix and the placenta. Not so good news. Turns out the placenta is partially covering the opening to my cervix and if it keeps covering it then I will not be able to have a vaginal birth which I really want. Most woman do. I don't want to be cut open and have my baby taken that way. So we have to schedule another ultrasound for a month or two down the road to see if the placenta receeds or if it covers more. If it covers more then we will be scheduling a c-section. Which in that case I will be scheduling it for Feb. 7th, because that is my daddy's birthday and well since he isn't here to experience the baby's birth we can at least have him born on the same day and we are also giving our little guy my dad's middle name.

So that is my wonderful, dramatic ultrasound. Rob and I are both on cloud 9. The pictures are in my profile if you want to go take a gander.

Best Birthday Ever!!

Rob had to go out of town on my Birthday for a show so we celebrated the day before by going to the MN State Fair. We had a lot of fun, it was hot but we ate a ton. On our way home we stopped and I got a pedicure to treat my poor aching feet. Then at home Rob gave me my gift of 3 - 1 hour body massages at my favorite massage place.

Later that night I was laying on the couch wathcing tv as Rob packed up the van to leave and I got the BEST GIFT EVER. I felt the baby kick. Well it was more of a flutter and I know it wasn't "just gas" I felt it about 4 times. I was in Heaven. Then I only felt it once on my Birthday and then once today in church. But I am just so happy I finally get to feel him/her moving. I'm sure a few months from now I will be telling the baby to stop kicking your hurting mommy or mommy is trying to sleep. But hey so far so good.

Oh and I also woke up on Saturday morning to a wonderful assortment of flowers Rob left me for my Birthday. He did very good this year!!!

I am not up North at my mom's spending time with her and my step dad. It's been a faboulous weekend so far. Of course I wish my husband was here to share it with me but hey he is promoting to new people so more power to him.

Just thought I would update you all who read my blogs. Love you all bunches!!

Life is good

Life is wonderful right now, I have no complaints. I had a interview for a job yesterday morning. It is still with the same company but this office I had the interview at is right down the road. I did well in the interview and figured I was going to have to wait all weekend to hear something. But I get to work and lo and behold about 45 minutes into my day I get a call and I am offered the job. Not only did I get the job but I got a raise. Wahoo!!!

Rob started a new job also this last week. He also got a raise and is doing more of what he loves to do. Also he is with one of his old buddies so there is always a funny story he has to tell me when he gets home.

Also I have been feeling wonderful. Other then this cold but anxiety wise I have been feeling great. My doctor is having me wean off my Zoloft and I am still on my Lexapro but hey it's one less medication to mess with my system. I am also reading 2 wonderful books. One is for me to learn more about myself. My fertility and how that all works. Rob and I are planning on trying to conceive in August. No reason for August other then that is 6 months of us being married. I am also reading a book just for fun I have a hard time putting it down. Jodi Picoulet is the author I think that's how you spell her name.

So I went shopping last night and today and have some new clothes for my new job. Then I come home from the mall and get the mail and find out that our work did so well that I am getting a bonus on 5-1-07. Granted it's only 1.83% of my 06 earnings but hey it's more money!!!

So life is good. I am happy and tonight I am going to go celebrate a friends birthday and get drunk off my ass. So it should all be good.

Better late than never

Well ladies and gentleman it has finally happened. The day finally came and went. My wedding day! It was great it was better then I could have even imagined. All the drama before hand all the stress all the throwing up it was all worth it. I married my soul mate and my best friend in the entire world. On Feb. 3rd of 2007 at 4pm I became Mrs Robert Schmahl. And I couldn't be happier.

For those of you that joined us on our special day. For those of you that didn't I'm sorry you missed it and I wish you could have come. I truly was so proud of myself the day before and the day of the wedding. I had zero anxiety and zero panic attacks. For those of you that know me and my anxiety you know this is a great thing for me. And for any of you that suffer from Anxiety Disorder you also know how wonderful it is to overcome something so big.

So anyways the wedding went great the honeymoon was spectacular and we could have used another week on the ship but all great things must come to an end. Well the honeymoon that is. We had to come back to reality. Well coming back to the "real" world after such a wonderful trip was a really big bite in the ass. Granted we got to come home to a home that was all ours with no roommate and come home to our Lola and presents going back to work sucked!!!!
