We're expecting! Unsure of the date still... but it looks like October. Whoops!
I hadn't been feeling like myself, I was tired, my chest was super sore, I was nauseated each morning after I ate breakfast and something just told me the check... and now we have a little whoops! We're happy and we are terrified. We planned on trying right after our wedding... I guess we're just 7 months early. They think I might already by at least 6 weeks already. We haven't told anyone expect our parents and MOH, oh and our WC. We're just waiting for the results of all my blood work, to confirm the date and make sure the babies healthy but obviously changes our plans drastically.
Our WC told us to keep our November date because we have such a good price, but if we have to move it, there's no way we'll get that price after November at the AS. I just don't know if I would want to take a baby that young to Mexico. She then suggested her favorite result in Cuba for January, which is an option. If we have to move it, it will be to move it back, not up. January/ February seems more ideal. But we don't want to put it off longer than that. It's so crazy that something you are looking so forward to can be changed instantly like this. Don't get me wrong, we're super happy, we just weren't expecting this to happen.. and when I mean little whoops... I mean little whoops.
The funny thing is, I've been working out like crazy, eating healthy, losing weight, inches... just let this be a lesson to everyone... LOL
WOW!!!!!! Christa - huge huge huge congratulations!! that's so exciting! and that is the best attitude to have...you can't change it, things happen and they happen for a reason...we just have to try and deal with them. at the end of the day, you're going to have a beautiful baby with the man of your dreams - what could be more perfect?! and like someone's said already...what a great story to tell them when they grow up!!
I hope everything gets sorted out with your hotel - it sounds like they're being really helpful so thats good. and another good thing is that you are quite a way out....at least your not like 3 months away or something when even more is planned, booked and paid for!!
I better stop working out though - if I'm pregnant when they do the blood test they won't legally marry us!! lol but being mega-organised, we do have a back up plan...if I were to, we'd not tell people and have a symbolic ceremony and then have a legal one back here. bit of a random thing to have a back up plan for but I just wanted to make sure we'd thought of everything!!

They're on, they're on!!! if you click on 'Photos of Katie' underneath my profile pic on facebook there's about 8 pages!! I have an album you can look through, but there are 3 friends who've uploaded photos last night as well so they've got albums on too!! I loved going through them all last night - made me all really happy again!
I'm going to get the girls to send me all their pics and then (maybe after the wedding!!) I'll create a photoalbum online and get it all printed out...will be a great album to look back on.

And I thought, "Oh my gosh, it's all started!!! The first person has moved as a result of our wedding (Ohio to Colorado)! The balls have started to roll and there's no turning back now!" It was a strange moment to think that all this hard work is finally being set in motion.
We leave in 1.5 days. YAY!!!!!!!
On another note, I got my nails done this morning and it's the first time I've ever had acrylic nails. Man, is it hard to type!!! It's taking me forever b/c I keep screwing up, LOL!
Woooo how exciting!! Can't believe it's tomorrow you go - it's come round so quick!
and you'll get used to the acrylic nails - I have been having mine done religiously since I was about 16!! now I can't function without them!
Can't wait to hear all about your wedding and see pictures

After our Travel Agent switch, we're only have a fraction of people sign up again
My mom wants me to sue the old TA who lost our contract. Whatta jerk!!!
I am really depressed by this news today. And I'm getting mad at my FI for being so anti a big wedding that we ended up doing a DW. I wish I weren't such a damn pushover!!!
Sara, you are probably feeling mad at your FI because now it's going a bit wrong and getting stressful. stick to your guns - it may have been his idea, but you agreed to it as well, and I know how easy it is to want to throw it back in their face when things start to go wrong (I know because a DW was my FI's idea and I used to get mad at him every time something started getting stressful or going wrong. Then I realised, when it goes well, I'll thank him for it too, and I did also agree to it.) I know it's hard but do not let wedding planning make you stress at your FI - just remember why you agreed to marry him in the first place and that when you strip it all down, the only 2 people who really, REALLY matter on the day are you two. the rest is all just a bonus.
