Well the bad news is, I haven't posted in forever. The good news is there's a pretty good reason. Last time I posted I was having a miserable time with my asthma. Constantly short of breath, attacks more often than not, etc. On top of that, I was exhausted all the time. ALL THE TIME. I had absolutely no energy to do anything but lay around. I was also having trouble losing weight. I'd been trying but the extra couple of pounds seemed to be glued to me. I chalked that up to the steroids from all the attacks.
This went on for a couple months and I couldn't understand what was going on. The doctors also weren't being too cooperative in helping, every time I went in to see them I'd get a round of steroids and be sent on my way when I really needed to up my medication.
Fast forward to two weeks ago. I missed my period. (sorry tmi guys!). I miss them often but thought I'd take a pregnancy test just to be sure and it turned out positive. Went to the dr and I did blood work. Also positive. It indicated I was about 5 weeks pregnant. My mind was blown.
Then a week later they did an ultrasound to make sure the baby was okay and to get a more exact due date. Guess what? I wasn't 5 weeks pregnant. I was over FIFTEEN weeks pregnant!! Holy freaking cow.
Around then, Kevin also asked me to marry him. He had been planning on it for a while, but now he didn't want to wait. I couldn't be any luckier than to be marrying my best friend. Throughout this entire experience he's been so sweet and caring, and more importantly level-headed. He's really helped to keep me calm while I was freaking out.
Overall it's been a crazy few weeks, but I couldn't be happier. I'm so so lucky to have a great fiance, wonderful parents close by (on both sides), and to work with Kevin so that he's always there when I'm freaking out or having a bad day. We weren't even remotely planning on this, but I think I'm pretty darn lucky.
I'm sorry if I've been missing messages here and there. I've been more than a little out of touch and pre-occupied lately but I promise to try to update you at least.
