I have some very exciting news...

I'm pregnant!!  I was at work a couple of weeks ago and was telling the girls some problems that I was having and they were convinced that I was pregnant.  I was a little skeptical but they went and got a pregnancy test for me and I did the test and it was POSITIVE!  I was a little in shock so I hurried and told Declan.  He was super excited.  I took a couple more pregnancy tests a few days later just to make sure and sure enough they were positive too.  I wasn't sure how far along I was so I scheduled my Dr.'s appointment and when I went to that appointment they said that I was 7 weeks 6 days.  I was a little disappointed to find out that the Dr. I went to doesn't deliver at the Riverton Hospital so I had to find a new Dr.  My sis-in-law delivered at Riverton so I scheduled my 12 weeks appointment with her Dr.  I ended up telling my parents the good news after my 8 week appointment and they were both excited.  Our family has been very supportive and excited.  My sister and sis-in-law went and got me a cute blanket to say congrats.  They are so cute!  I have been feeling pretty good so far but my allergies have been horrible and if I wait to long in between eating I feel sick.  I've gained more weight already then I prefer.  I know the weight gain is inevitable but I'm trying to slow the gain down as much as possible.  I will post updates of the pregnancy as I get bigger.

Here is a picture of the little peanut:

Declan and I and his family went to Disneyland this last week and we had so much fun.  I wish the weather was a little better but we still enjoyed every minute.  We drove to California on Wednesday and listen to the Hunger Games book which made the time go by so fast.  We spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Disneyland and drove home on Sunday listening to the 2nd book of the Hunger Games.  Thursday was the warmest day and the least busiest.  We get Declan's brother Sean a Special Needs pass which means that all six of us get to go to the front of the line on every ride so we never have to wait.  Sean loves the rides and gets super excited so he makes it fun for us.  Friday was semi warm during the day but got pretty cool when the sun started to set and Saturday was rainy on and off during the day and pretty cold.  Later that night we saw the World or Color show in California Adventure which would have been awesome if it wasn't a down pour rain.  We finished the show and then planned on hurrying back to the hotel to dry off but everyone else had the same idea so it was slow moving to the exit and during the process we accidently got split up so three of us tried to stay out of the rain while trying to find the other three of our group and after about a half hour we were able to find them and hurry to the shuttle to get back to the hotel.  We left on Sunday about 2pm and ended up driving through snow shortly after St. George until we got home.  We didn't end up getting home until 1:30am on Monday morning and had to go get the dogs from my parent's.  We both had to get up early for work on Monday so we only ended up getting a few hours of sleep which made for a long work day.  Over all the trip was fun and I can't wait to go back again.  Here are some photos from the trip:
