Any suggestions on girl names?
Saturday, December 6, 2008
I find that if I write about it then I don't cry or freak out as much, unless of course I am talking to my mother, then I just cry and cry. I am not asking why me, but more of what does this mean? Am I going to be able to handle this? Is the baby going to live? I have a lot to be thankful for in my life and I don't want to forget that ever, I know my Heavenly Father loves me and I will never forget that. I don't blame God, I don't blame myself, I just want to know what now? I pray that this baby is as healthy as can be and won't have to deal with too much in life. I pray that I can be the best mother I can and show this child all the love I have.
I am sorry this is such a depressing blog but I needed to get it out and just release some of this weight I feel. God be with you all and with my baby.

Well I have been feeling much better in way of the baby, however I got a nasty case of Bronchitis I am currently working on getting over. I started to feel little movements which is NOT at all what I expected it to feel like. Which brings me to think of a few things no one ever told me about pregnancy.
- It feels like they are punching you from the inside
- You pee a little bit every time you sneeze, cough, laugh, etc.
- Headaches NEVER go away
- You wake up every two hours to pee
- And countless others I can't think of or remember right now because of the lack of concentration.
Also, we did have an Ultrasound appointment on Monday to find out what this thing in side me is and we are excited to announce it is HUMAN.
We were scared there for a bit, however, it was feeling shy so we are still in the dark like the rest of you. I promise when I find out what sex it is I will let EVERYONE know. Importantly we know it is healthy and on track, which is about as much as I could ask for. I actually am very grateful to be pregnant. Charlie and I have both wanted children for a long time and we feel very blessed that this child is coming into our lives. Hope this finds everyone well.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, they were taken with Charlie's phone. And we don't know what we are having yet but my sister gave me the bedding and I thought it was SO cute I just had to use it. I think it could go either way, although I really feel like I am having a boy.

August wasn't that exciting until about the 15th when I found out I was pregnant. I know you are all thinking "how is that NOT exciting news?" Well I didn't want to get my hopes to soon. With my history I was scared to say anything too soon. Although I did tell my husband and my family.
On August 28th I was offered a job with Community Collaborative Charter Schools as an Office Clerk. I started September 8th and I love it. The teachers are great, the kids are nice, and the pay is good.
Another reason I hadn't wanted to say anything about the pregnancy was that I was having A LOT of pain in my abdomen, especially the right side. I have had a history of ovarian cyst so I wasn't sure if it was that or an ectopic. Charlie was so worried that he insisted we go to the ER. Side note, I don't have insurance yet. Anyway, he didn't care about that and was so worried it was giving him stomach issues. We got to the ER Saturday morning about 11am, they got me right in and set me up with an IV and gave me drugs for the pain. We got in to the ultra sound around 2pm, after all was said and done, I have a cyst on my LEFT ovary, nothing on my right to explain the pain. We did get to see our BLOB flutter, as Charlie put it. So we know it is in the right place and doing what it needs to be doing, which makes Charlie and I feel tons better. I may not know what is causing the pain but knowing that everything else is ok for now will help me get through it.
I also need to give thanks to my Heaven Father for keeping me safe and taken care off. My husband and I have been on our knees more in the last two months than in a really long time. He has given us both strength neither of us thought we had and helped calm fears. It has been hard for me to get the desire to go back to church. With my husband not a member and me not knowing anyone in the ward, it is easier for me to just stay in bed and read my scriptures and pray. I know I need to be going, I need to make it a priority and stick to it.
Anyway, there it is, the update on the Lawson's for the last two and a half months. Sorry it took so long.

My birthday was in April and Charlie surprised me with tickets to see Phantom of the Opera here in Sacramento. I love the theatre but have only been a few times. I fell in love with the story of Phantom when I saw a high school performance of it. Then of course the movie was good too, but I have always wanted to see it live. Not many of you know Charlie, but he is NOT your theatre going kind of guy. He would rather watch football or wrestling (WWF or whatever they call it now). So when I saw two tickets I figured he wanted me to take my mom or a friend. Nope he wanted to experience something new with me. I have been so blessed with him in my life. I have never had a man treat me the way he does, he really will do anything for me.

Friday afternoon we made our way to St. George to see my Best Friend and her family. We had a great time and can't wait to move there in December. I am so done with California. I want to raise my family somewhere safer than Sacramento. It will be hard to be away from my parents but with three of us kids in Utah they will have to just come and visit.

What is his name? Charles Lawson but we all call him Charlie
How long have you been married? 41 days
How long did you date? Just a little over 4 months
How old is he? 29
Who eats more? umm....we both love our food, he usually finishes his and then eats my left overs the next day. But he burns it off faster than I do.
Who is taller? He is.
Who has more speeding tickets? Well since he drives like an old lady, I do. If they gave tickets out for driving the slowest he would have his license suspended.
Who is more sensitive? Him. I don't let too much get to me, I think they may change soon.
Who mows the lawn? We don't have one.
Who said I love you first? I did. He thought it was kinda fast.
Who is smarter? Charlie has this ability to do all math in his head in like 2.2 seconds. He knows a lot about a lot of things. I have more street smarts.
Who does the laundry? He does. He is home during the day and doesn't mind doing it, although I have to remind him to separate my darks and lights.
Who does the dishes? He does. Well if I dirty a plate or cup I just put it in the dishwasher, but he starts it and empties it.
Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Looking at the bed, Charlie does.
Who pays the bills? Charlie. I am not very good with money. Other peoples money, I am fine, but ours....not so much.
Who cooks dinner? Sadly we eat out way too much. I think we have only cooked maybe three meals at home since we got married. And we both helped. Although he enjoys it more than I do.
Who drives when you are together? He would prefer to drive since I give him a heart attack every time I drive and we end up not talking to each other for the rest of the drive. When he drives I just try to relax and settle in for the long slow stroll.
Who is more stubborn? Me.
Whose parents do you see the most? Mine. Since his mom lives 1100± miles away.
Who proposed? Charlie. Although I think I pushed him to do it sooner than he would have.
Who has more friends? ummm, probably me.
Who has more siblings?Charlie is an only child, so me.
Who wears the pants in the family? I would say him although he does everything I suggest so maybe I do. Man did I get lucky or what.

So I thought since everyone else has one of these I would start one, just to let everyone know what all was going on in the Married Life of Charlie and Amy Lawson, as well as post some of our wedding pictures.
Jan 4th was a blistery rainy beautiful wonderful day. We got married. Despite the cold and constant rain, everyone was able to make it to the church on time and in one piece. We got married at the LDS Church I grew up going to. It was a small and intimate group of our families and friends. We then celebrated by going to pizza at the local round table. Our reception was later that night at the beautiful home of family friends the Cortopassi's. My mom and who ever helped her did an amazing job on the decor and really making it such a special day for us.
We just had our 3 week anniversary. I know it sounds silly. I think I am more in love with Charlie today than I was on the day we got married, something about living with that one person, getting to know EVERYTHING about them all the little things that you didn't know before. It has been amazing. We love our little home but are both struggling to love our jobs. It is sad that so much of life is centered around money.
Well we hope this finds everyone well and happy.
