Party over Here!!!!

Last Saturday was my cousin's wedding or should I say celebration. Which meant lots of family from out of state and country came to celebrate the occasion. This was the first wedding that I've gone to and just about everyone was on the dance floor and dancing for the whole night. It is by far one of the best weddings that I've been to in a long, long time.

The ceremony took place at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Babylon, NY and the reception was held at the beautiful Lands End in Sayville, NY. Enough talk here are some pics I jacked from my sis Kim and cousin Nikki's Facebook pages.

No one even realized when the bride & groom cut the cake because they were to busy partying

My brother caught the garter and got low, low, low

And as for me I couldn't do much partying cuz the lil Miss kept moving around so I had to sit this one out...peace out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Ultrasound Never Lies

Last week was my first ultrasound my original appointment was for Tuesday morning but I was late and had to reschedule the appointment so I finally was seen Thursday afternoon. What a day I was so anxious to see the baby and find out everything that is going on.

The FI and I were called into the room and we were able to see the baby. At first it was like hide and seek but finally the movement stopped and I noticed how big the baby is. So I said the baby looks kind of big for 13 weeks and the doctor measured the baby and let us know that I'm 16 not 13 weeks. The doctor then said she could tell us the sex of the baby if we wanted to know we said yes and she told us its a girl. I was in shock by how farther along I am and the fact that were having a girl. To make a long story short FI was too excited to know that he's going to have a baby girl and I'm already thinking of names and cute lil outfits for her.

So this week I'm 17 weeks (still taken aback by that) and I've been told that the "gas" that I've been feeling is actually the baby. Can't wait until I feel the first kick in a few weeks.

Seize of baby this week (5 ounces and 5 inches), BTW I'm starting to show a lil

Welcome Back!!!!

Let me first start off by apologizing (again) for my lack of blogging but so much has been going on in my world. First let me announce that the FI and I have moved our wedding date from May 16, 2010 to sometime in the fall because...were expecting our baby June 2, 2010.

Yup were 3 months pregnant. We first found out in late September around the time of FI's uncle's passing. And have kept it under wraps for a while but recently I decided that I want to share my good news with you all. So you might ask how I've been feeling? I'm doing well no morning sickness or anything like that for me, just sleepy all the time and my clothes that used to be roomy getting sung. You might also ask why move the date? Well my due date is two weeks after the wedding date and I decided that I didn't want to be uncomfortable at my wedding so we agreed to move the date to the fall (which is my fav season) and have a smaller wedding.

Let me just say that I had so many emotions once I found out that we were pregnant; happy, sad, upset, depressed, unsure. Happy that we were having our family that we always talk about but sad that I would be pregnant during the time of our wedding which we have invested so much into. Upset that we let this happen I mean of all the times, depressed because I had some ppl around me telling me to forget the big wedding and just go to the court house and get married which we don't want to do and unsure because I was just couldn't make up my mind on what to do about the wedding (I already ordered my dress and am more than half way through paying it off and yall know the boutique is not giving me a refund). It was a little stressful for me but my mother and FI let me know that the decision is ours to make and no one else and we have to do what's best for baby and us.

So we went to our vendor and cancelled our date so they can re-book it and give us a refund...I'll keep you posted on that one cuz all I know is Westbury Manor gonna be messing with the right one if they don't run my money. We love this venue and would only want to have our wedding their so we'll see if they come correct.

Then we told close family members and I was surprised that everyone was/is happy and excited for us. I say this because my family is a some what strict Jamaican family and very much into the church (my uncle is my home church pastor) so you understand my concern. All of you family members who I'll see next weekend don't say anything were going to tell everyone then.

On to baby news, I'm now 11 weeks (but I'm saying 12 cuz idk when I had my last period) so this means that baby is the seize of a lime, weighs 1/2 ounce and is 2 inches long :-)

Next Tuesday is my ultra sound and I can't wait to see what my lil swimmer is up to.
