Aimee and the baby

Thursday, August 24, 2006


Well I finally threw up and it was awful. It happened yesterday at 10am, I hadnt eaten anything yet and I was drinking Crystal Light Fruit Punch. I was at the front desk talking to Nat when it just hit me. I made to the bathroom but barely in the stall before I let rip! It looked like I had bled everywhere. Bless Nat's heart, she cleaned it all up including my pee. Yeah, I peed my pants. I couldnt help it and luckily I was wearing a skirt so it didnt get my clothes. I did, however, go commando for the rest of the a skirt! I will remember to bring a change of clothes from now on. It was an awful feeling and I hope to never do it again. I think it was just because I hadnt eaten, so now I am making sure to eat breakfast. I have been good so far today!

The job is working out pretty good. We basically just vacuum for 3 hours and the extra money is going to be great! I will finally have all my loans paid off and start the new year with two of my New Year's resolutions fulfilled! On top of that, I am having a baby, which I get more and more excited about as time goes by.

Time for a second job!

Well Nat and I got a second job cleaning an elementary school. It is really going to be pretty easy, just vacuuming and moping basically. The job is from 6-9, so we can go straight there after we get off from our first job. Nat is doing it to help with student loans and I am doing it for my new car. See, originally I had planned to have my student loans paid off and THEN get a new car, only it didnt work that way. So I am paying 3 loans and now a car payment, which I can do, but then I would be broke. So this job is perfect. It only pays $7 but that is an extra $300 or so that I didnt have! I am only planning on doing it through probably November til I have my loans paid off. Besides, by then I will have a belly and I dont know how well I will be able to clean. Ike started school and now is not only working 40 hours a week, he is taking 18 hours of school. So, needless to say, he is going to be busy! So this job should work to me occupied until he has time.

Although I feel very lucky not to have to go through morning sickness and such, my face is breaking out horribly. I am so self-conscious about it! I guess it could always be worse, it is only along my jaw line so not that noticeable unless you see me from the side. I just hate it though, I wish there were something I could do but nothing seems to help. I have been sleeping great lately which is a relief, so thats a plus!

I am so ready to find out the sex of the baby, it is driving me crazy. I absolutely CANNOT wait! Only a month and a half to go!

New car...

So I got a new car. It is a 2004 Dodge Status and is a beautiful shade of red. This car to me is awesome considering my old is a 1997 Dodge Stratus with 192,000 miles on it. It was barely making it. I was extremely excited about it when I got it two days ago, but now there is just so much to do and BUY! I had to get a home phone, which I have never had because I always just use my cell phone. I think it is completely ridiculous but they wouldnt budge! UGH!!! That and the insurance and TTT (tag, title and tax) I am now broke and will be for the next few months! But I needed a new car and I am proud that this is my first car that I have purchased! So I guess it is a good thing!

I havent been feeling great, especially today. I am so tired and sick feeling, I would like to just go home and go back to bed! Also, I think I am a little moody!! PRAY FOR ME

I went to the doctor today to check the babys heartbeat. Turns out I am farther along than originally estimated. I am 9 weeks and 5 days. WOW! We (Nat and I) got to see a pic of the baby and hear the heartbeat. I am extremely elated! All this time, it didnt actually feel real, but now it is SO real...I wanna show the pic to everyone! I sent the pic to my mom, she lives in Canada, and she was so excited as well! She thinks it is a boy, Nat and I and everyone else believe it is a girl. Only time will tell!

Another restless night!

I didn't sleep well last night! I have been having trouble staying asleep and getting comfortable. I wake up at 1:30 and watch TV and try falling back really makes the next day suck. I am so exhausted, yet when I try to go to bed early, I just lay there. Ike is going out of town this weekend for a conference. He is going to be gone next weekend as well. I hate when he goes out of town, I cant call him and I have gotten used to talking to him everyday. I am just cranky this morning I think. I NEED REST!!! I guess I should be happy that I still havent gotten sick, really happy about that! At least it is FRIDAY!!! Have a good one, I will try :)

Well this is my first blog ever! My best friend Nat has a blog that I have been reading, while I dont think my blog will be as entertaining or witty as hers, I can try!

First things first, I am having a baby. I am currently 7 weeks 4 days pregnant. I am not married and I dont even have a boyfriend. You might be wondering how this happened...well let me explain! I have been dating this man named Ike, that I think is wonderful btw, for about two years. He goes to school full time (with a degree in Bio-Medical Engineering) and does real estate stuff on the side, so he is fairly busy. Oh, and he lives about 30 minutes from me so not necessarily close. A couple of months ago we agreed that it would be best if we stopped seeing each other for a while. He needed to get work and school figured out and I needed to get over HIM! You see he is a great guy, which is why it is hard! He has a great relationship with God which I admire, he is honest and driven...just perfect, for the most part. He is from Nigeria and moved here about 9 years ago. His father is a doctor as is one of his sisters. He wanted to come to America to experience everything life has to offer and to accomplish EVERYTHING he wants and his family wants for his life. See why I love the man....oh yeah I didnt mention that I LOVE THIS MAN!

Anyways, back to baby! Well it had been a month since our break and he called. Of course I was excited to hear from him and he could tell. We talked for a while on the phone and then about 45 minutes later he was at my door. I have to admit I was thrilled!!! He missed me!! Well we got back together that Friday night but by Sunday the happiness had worn off. I was so happy to have him back in my life but I couldnt go back to the way we were. I wanted him to be my boyfriend and to spend more time with him and he felt he couldnt commit to that. So, we broke up again. However, three weeks menstral! I let him know I hadnt started and he was great about it. He came over took me to dinner and we talked, he assured me like he always did that it would be fine either way.

I was officially late. I was several days late and I am never late! Nat (bf and also works with me) and I decided to go to walmart at lunch and get a test. I peed and there were two pink lines...then I cried! Nat hugged me and told that it would be ok and I knew it would! Oh, I forgot to mention that we used a much for that! I am 26 and will be 27 before the baby is born...normal age for an expecting mom. Ike is 29. I called him on the way back to work from walmart, he said congratulations....I said congratulations to you too! He is okay with it once we got over the initial shock of it all! He has been great this whole thing. Although we arent together we are "hanging out". I stay the night at his house and he at mine. We are just taking it one day at a time and just trying to do what is right for the baby. I know that he will always be there for me and the baby no matter what happens and for that I am grateful.

I am now extremely excited about becoming a mother! I have always wanted children and now it is happening! So far I havent had any morning sickness (knock on wood), just a little nausea in the morning and breast tenderness. I hope it stays this way! On Monday, Nat and I are going to the doctor to hear the babys heart, I am so excited and happy that I get to share this with my best friend! Ike went to the first doctor appt but couldnt take off for this one. But I am glad it is Nat going!

Well thats all for now, more to come!
