17 Weeks

So time seems to have flown by. I'm already 17 weeks. My nausea is dying down, and my days are getting better and better. It's already almost July! (Maybe it already is... it depends on when I'll post this) Vacations are starting and Justin and I have been married for 3 years.

So far this summer we've gone to Kamas, St George, Nebo Loop, and Yuba Lake. I'm feeling like there might be more, I just can't think of them right now.

Either way, there are hopefully going to be a lot more coming. Like Vegas, another St George, Wicked (not a vacation, but certainly awesome) and then maybe other surprise ones.

This is a big summer for Justin and I. It's the last one with just us. It's our last summer with school. Our last summer in an apartment (hopefully). Our last summer before Justin has a full time real job. (Again, hopefully.) So we wanted to make it a little more special. It's been fun so far, and it can only get better from here :)

This has been such a fun time for me. I have a few other friends that are pregnant right now, and it's so fun to compare stories, hear how it's been for them, and just to have someone understand what you're going through. As loving and sweet as Justin is, he just doesn't understand HOW I can be so tired. I really don't understand it either, I just know that I'm pooped. A lot. But, with the passing of time, that's getting better as well. I don't fall asleep before Justin anymore (which was awesome) and I don't have the overwhelming desire to nap when I get home. So, 17 weeks, I welcome you with open arms.

Justin right now is applying for different jobs, and we're waiting to hear back from a couple of them. We've got high hopes, because a lot relies on what he gets. Like if I can quit my job, WHEN I can quit... and that's really all that matters to me right now. HA. Not really, but it's high up there. Right along with once he gets a job, finding a place to live. It blows my mind that we're already to that point, but then I feel like I've been waiting for it forever. Yay for growing up! Sometimes. Then I get bills and stuff, and I'm like "Oh, to be a teenager again!"

So glad that I'm not the only one who experiences this. My dreams have been out of control!

How and why does pregnancy affect your dreams? 

Alas, I feel normal again!

Oh how I love thee

So, since we found out that we were pregnant, Justin has been the biggest help ever. He's done the dishes since I was 6 weeks (since then they've made me gag) but he's been a trooper about it, and I wanted to write down how much I appreciate everything that he's done.

He's been SO understanding about my feelings, and how easily I get sick. He's more than happy to take me to Ihop to eat the amazing red velvet pancakes, and he's fine driving around until I figure out what sounds good. He's been so understanding of my messiness lately, and my lack of energy (or caring) to clean things up.

I'm pretty sure we were meant to be together.

Other things that are super awesome about my husband (to name a few)
 - he can fix our cars. It's really nice not having to pay an arm and a leg for someone else to fix our car. He's so handy and willing to do it. That definitely counts for something.
 - he's pretty freaking smart. Some of the stuff that he tells me about (usually dealing with work or computers) all I can do is smile and nod, because I have no idea what he's talking about. But he does, and he loves it. I am so glad that he's going to school for something that he loves, and hope he will be able to find a job that he loves just as much (fingers crossed).
 - he makes me laugh on a daily basis. To me, this is one of the most important things in a relationship. If you can't have fun, what can you have?
 - he's got his priorities set straight. So sometimes when I'm like, "Hey! Let's go do this!" He'll be all grown up and tell me we don't have the money or what not... which after I think about it, I appreciate. Even if it does take a few days to think about. Haha

Those are just the things that have been coming up within the last couple of weeks. He's so amazing, and I love him.
