Just ugh...

That's how I feel. So sick and tired all the time... Nothing sounds appetizing and I'm hungry all the time it seems. All I want to do today is sleep and I can't do that. Had a wonderful day calling every dentist I could find hoping they take my insurance. After a few hours and actually scheduling Chey an appointment with my OLD pediatric dentist I found one fairly close to me which is nice because I live in a small town and didn't want to travel an hour to get to a dentist. Luckily they said they could get me in this Thursday! And they are happy I'm JUST in my second trimester because they don't work on patients in the first or third! So if I need something done (cavity filled, etc.) they have time to do it! YAY! Let's hope I can sit there an hour without wanting to puke all over the dentist now, that will be fun.

Yay Sophie!

This is going to be a short post.
It was so cute! Chris was clapping and Sophie started clapping to mimic him! We kept saying "YAY SOPHIE!" and she'd get all excited and happy and it was too cute!

Chey started school yesterday and she loved it! Didn't cry at all! Today was her first day riding the bus and she loved that too! She is getting so big and I am so proud of her!

Bought some earplugs and got a little more sleep last night. Didn't hear Chris snoring, didn't hear anything but the baby screaming through the monitor. A little weird to get used to but I love them! The only thing that really kept me awake was the tossing and turning and being uncomfortable.

Earplugs?! SOMETHING!

So I'm having a horrid time sleeping. I'm exhausted but can't sleep for the life of me. I'm so uncomfortable and I'm tossing and turning and Chris snores or breathes so heavily I can't get to sleep. I literally didn't sleep at all last night and I fear tonight will be the same. I can sleep just fine during the day but at night, forget it!

Had my NT scan yesterday and Sweet Pea is measuring right on his/her due date. Heart rate was 167BPM and Chey was in the room and got to see her little brother or sister. It was so cute, baby fell asleep and Chey started singing to wake baby up and the baby just started bouncing all over the place. The u/s tech asked if she could borrow Chey for all of her NT scans!

Why are Saturdays so boring?!

It's just a typical boring Saturday for me... Nothing going on, husband asleep in the recliner, Sophie is napping and Chey is playing outside. I have Chili in the crockpot since last night, I usually only have it in there about 2 hours but had an urge to stick it in over night and boy does it smell good.

Took a Gendermaker test this morning.... Said the baby is going to be a girl! Haha Chris loved that. He keeps telling me it could be wrong it could be wrong. Well after two girls, I have a feeling it may be right ;)

My Poor Sophie Doll!

So we were at the grocery store yesterday and Soph was in her carseat at the top of the cart and completely tipped it upside down into the basket! Scared the HELL out of me! Her nose was bleeding and her poor face looked horrible. Of course we rushed her to the ER where they told us that she was just fine thank God. I think we are definitely done with that carseat! Her face slammed right into the bars so she has this criss-cross looking bruises on her forehead, nose and chin. Poor little thing :(

Cheyanne (who's 3) got accepted into Headstart and starts next week. I think we are more excited than her! So we take her for a physical today and she will be getting a flu shot as will Sophie. It's unbelievable how fast they grow!

You may notice that I don't mention my oldest daughter Lexie (5) too much. That is because talking about her brings me to tears... My ex husband's mother had her one day and her father stopped by and took off with her. No clue where and his mother isn't talking. Apparently they had it planned for quite awhile. This happened September 12, right before she was supposed to start Headstart. I had her enrolled here for awhile and she went to see her grandma right before the start of school. Well she was due to come home and I called over there to find out my ex husband had run off with her. Well the police are involved but they don't have a clue as to where he is and as soon as they find him they are pressing parental kidnapping charges against him because he doesn't have any custody of her. I miss my baby so much! I cry for her every night and this is the hardest thing I've ever had to go through. She turned 5 on October 11th and I just felt like staying in bed and bawling all day.... I hope soon they find my blondie girl, mama misses her SO much!

Mondday Night Dinner - Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

Tonight I made a yummy dinner! Homemade Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo! This was my first time trying this recipe and it's definitely going in the book! It's just for the fettuccine but I added the chicken, probably also good with shrimp or veggies. So delicious! Enjoy!

Servings: 8

24oz. Fettuccine Pasta
3/4 cup salted butter
3/4 pint heavy whipping cream
Salt and Pepper to your liking
2 garlic cloves; minced
3/4 grated Romano cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

OR instead of the Romano and Parmesan, I used a whole 5oz. container sold in the store of the Romano and Parmesan cheeses grated and blended.

1. Bring a large pot of lightly slated water to a boil. Add fettuccine and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

2. In a large saucepan, melt butter into cream over low heat. Add salt, pepper and garlic. Stir in cheese over medium heat until melted; this will thicken the sauce.

3. Add pasta to sauce. Use enough of the pasta so that all of the sauce is used and the pasta is thoroughly coated. Serve immediately.


Well a few nights after my last post I had a night terror of all night terrors. Sophie had woken up and was crying, she was in our room because we were visiting my grandparents for a few nights. Apparently that startled me awake and I woke up screaming bloody murder. Chris reached over to hold onto me and was screaming "Ashley, Ashley, wake up, it's ok, it's me!" All I head was my name and I honestly thought he was trying to kill me. He let me go to grab a flashlight he's been keeping by the bed and I bolted out the door, still screaming, to my grandparent's room. I ran into their room and started screaming "He's trying to kill me! Something's wrong with him!" My grandma runs out of the room to see what's wrong and out walks Chris with the baby. She asked what happened and he told her... That was a newsflash to me. I thought he grabbed me in my sleep and was trying to kill me! After that, I made an earlier appointment with my doctor and she prescribed me Ambien. I have been sleeping SO much better since then!

Oh and Sweet Pea is measuring right on track with my original due date of April 27th!
