Miss my husband

I miss my husband terribly. I am excited because our Anniversary is coming up next weekend and I get to go see him. Since he missed my birthday and I'm going to miss his birthday we are doing a lot of celebrating and combining it all into one. I leave Thursday and get back on Monday. I am just going to hug him and not let go.
I have a new respect for all women who have husbands that have to leave for whatever reason be it travel for work or military. I don't know how they do it and me being pregnant makes it hard because my emotions are on overdrive.
Today someone asked me how I was and I said "good" and he said that can't be true. What am I supposed to do? Cry all day and feel sorry for myself? I have to stay positive and have faith that this sacrifice will be worth it for our family.
What's worse is at least I'm still in California where I have friends and family around. He has my family but no real friends yet and I think he's lonely and that breaks my heart.
We also realized that I can't travel after this trip because I will be to far along and it wouldn't be wise to go out of town in November like I wanted to.
My spirits are pretty low today.

It was night 4 of me being here at my mom's alone since her and Ron are on vacation. So around 10 after the X Factor I opened my door to turn the lights off in the hall and I heard a noise coming from the bathroom. I thought it was the cat because that's where her food and water is. Nope it was a huge racoon that somehow jumped onto the counter and was eating her food. The coon just waddled away down the hall and went outh the doggie door as if to say "bye thanks for the snack"
I freaked out because I had never seen a racoon upclose let alone in the house. Why does this stuff always happen to me when my mom's away???? Really ????

I am very glad the weekend is over. It's been very hard being away from my best friend and husband. I knew that Sunday was going to be the hardest because that has always been our day to spend together. I cried most of the day and couldn't seem to pull myself together.
I can't express how much I appreciate my amazing family for helping him unload the truck and unpack. I really feel like my family is so wonderful the way we all gather together to help eachother out. I know that Anthony appreciated the help also.
I miss my husband!! I miss my dog!! I know this is how it has to be for a little bit and the time will go by fast, at least that's what I'm hoping.

Big Move

For the past month we've had no internet/cable or phone and it's nice be connected again.
A big day for me and my family. About two months ago Anthony and I were given a great opportunity. To move into my brother's old house in Orem UT 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath, front yard and back yard and since we've lived in an apt so long this is fun for us. We were super excited and got right to work on getting a job there. We made a trip in August and a few weeks after some interviews Tony was hired at Larry H. Miller as a service writer.
As of today Tony is on his way to Utah with all our stuff. My dad and brother-in-law Brady even came down to help us with the move. I am so thankful for their willingness and sacrifice.
The only downside is I have to stay. Since I'm insured with Kaiser and they aren't nation wide I am staying in California until baby Angelo is born. This is very difficult but we really feel like this is the right decision for us and for our family.
I just hope Utah is kind to my husband. He's never seen or been in snow in his life and I know it'll be a fun surprise for him.

It's a BOY!!!

We had our big ultrasound this morning. I had to start drinking water at about 6:45 because you have to have a full bladder and have it full for an hour before your appointment. The girl doing the sonogram was super nice. She took a lot of pictures of baby Love and the baby was moving around so much most of the pictures are fuzzy. We got to see the gender and since I was lying down and the screen looked upside down I didn't see his penis very well then I was like "Ohhh there it is." We are so excited to be having a baby and I am so happy that we know now that it's a boy.
Angelo Anthony Love will be his name. That not only honors my husband but his late gradfather Angelo and his late uncle Anthony. We will call him AJ and Angelo, very Italian. I love it!!
I didn't really cry but whenever I see the baby or hear the heart beat it seems I tear up and can't stop smiling!! Tony teared up when he saw the baby and when he made calls to his family!!
It's been wonderful feeling the love of our families and friends and the wonderful words of support. We love you and we are so thankful for our growing family :)

I was lying down watching tv last night and thought I felt a little flutter. I got excited and started talking to the baby :) Just now I'm sitting reading e-mails and going on facebook and I can really feel him/her fluttering around in my belly, it is so great to be able actually be able to feel it. I was just at the Dr and we did a very quick sonogram and got to see the baby moving around. The Dr said "You have a very active baby." And it was kind of a bummer because I couldn't feel him/her. The baby was moving a lot and had it's arm up and it looked like it was waving at us saying "Hi mommy and daddy" It was so darn cute I couldn't stand it. It's fun now that I can feel him/her I talk more to my belly. Soon I get to call it a him or a her and by it's name. Angelo if it's a boy, Teresa if it's a girl :)

Things no one told me

I have to say that once you get pregnant there are all kinds of people giving you advice. I have listened to most even if it's just a smile and nod. No one told me that I would start sneezing a lot with no cold just sneezing because apparently something is going on in my nose...really??? Being pregnant effects your nose? My newest discovery is my skin has been itching, mostly on my belly and a friend noticed me itching and told me not to. My skin is stretching and if I itch I will get bad stretch marks. Oh super! So as often as I can I oil my tummy up or put on body butter it doesn't seem to be helping because even right now it itches like crazy and so instead of scratching I rub my belly, that's why pregnant women are always rubbing their bellies.
I am 18 weeks now and get to find out what the sex of the baby is a week from Tuesday! Can't wait I hope that baby love is in a position so we can see clearly ;)
