Monday Monday....

good morning...hope everyone had a great weekend! ours was nice. didn't do much, but sometimes that's ok too! we have a busy week....swimming lessons, tumbling and then it's a car trip back home to visit! for years my folks have always thrown a big family 4th of july shindig @ their lake home....and this year we're finally going to join the festivities. i'm looking forward to seeing family we haven't seen in several years! unfortunately, this may be the last 4th of july party at their lake home. their in the process of looking for a different house closer to town and in north dakota. minnesota taxes on lake property is outrageous i guess and as they age it's best they be closer to a town with a hospital.
thought i would share a few pictures with you.... a layout i did of lauren playing soccer... a recent picture of kati....and a picture of my secret!
yup, it's true...we can't believe it either! one would think that after taking maybe 2 tests a person would come to grips with it and realize that false positives aren't all that common. i bought my first test at target and had to hit the bathroom before we even left the store. i cried. then on the way home from target i ran into walgreens. thought maybe if i spent a few extra bucks on a test it would give me different results. nope. new day...new test or two. finally the 5th test i waited until first thing in the morning. and i made sure i peed on the stick just right, no funny angles, counting the correct number of seconds it tells you to pee on the stick.....POSITIVE! oh boy!!!! we totally thought we were done! in fact terry doesn't think i should be telling anyone because i haven't had the best pregnancies and then had a miscarriage. (i'm only about 5-6 weeks) but being as that i wasn't all that happy about it in the first place i really wanted to tell people so i could feel better about it! i knew if i told people i would get a good reaction! people would be happy for us and in return maybe i could be happy too. and don't get me wrong, it's NOT like i'm not happy...i am. it's just scary. lauren was 4 weeks early, kati was 7 weeks early and spent 17 days in the NICU and then i had a miscarriage. but i keep telling myself there is a reason i am pregnant again. it's like god is giving us one last chance to have a healthy baby. i haven't seen the dr. yet. but i do have an apt. scheduled. she's nearly impossible to get into! she's a high risk dr. so i should be in good hands for hopefully a full 9 months! i did go in and had the blood test taken. not like i needed another test to tell me i was pregnant :)
the only other bad thing is the hospital she delivers at is a good 30-40 min. away. i didn't know i was in labor with kati. i felt crappy all wk. end but never thought it was labor. i have a high tolerance for pain....and the contractions didn't feel like contractions.....the drive to our hospital in ak was about 30 min. i delivered kati 11 min. after getting to the hospital! so i guess i'm a little wigged out about having a long drive and tons of traffic to fight....so if you think of it, say a little prayer for the life growing inside me....and that we can spend a full 9 months growing together!

Oh Kori!!!! I am so happy for you!!!
Try not to stress about it and get anxious already about the way the pregnancy will go.
Rest assured you & the baby are in God's hands. He knows what's best and will take care of you both.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!

OH KORI! I'm soooooooooooooo happy for you! I'm so baby hungry. LOL! I too recently peed on that many sticks, cause I was extremely late, but kept getting the other answer. LOL!

HOORAY! Can't wait to see baby pics. Hope your pregnancy is fabulous. I hear you on the quick delivery thing. My last two were both the exact same way!

HUGE HUGS!!!

SO happy for you Kori!!!
Payton was my surprise baby and I was scared at first (since we didn't exactly plan on having 2 kiddos so close together) but after the initial shock wore off it was wonderful. Sending lots and lots of good luck and healthy pregnancy wishes your way!
Hugs!!!

Cute picutres and layout! I'm glad you finally let your secret out! It will be fine, just make sure you take it easy, I know that is hard for you, you are always on the move doing something. Now you will just have to scale it back some! Sydney told her coach last night that she won't be at the last 2 games because she is going home with you guys! She is really getting excited!
