A BIT early but we can't help it

Okay so I know that we still have like 29 weekes until this baby comes but we couldn't help ourselves. And if you know my husband, you know he likes to be PREPARED. I think we could have this baby tomorrow and we would be ready. Charlie got a student loan and we decided to use some of the money for baby furniture. It came in last Friday and we just had to pick it up. The crib was actually very easy to put together although the desser not so much.
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.

Okay so I know I have been a major slacker with this blog. But honestly I thought nothing exciting had happened, that is until I was told otherwise last night at family dinner. First off let me start back in July, as you may remember I was laid off the end of June so I decided I was going to take a vacation. I started with 10 days in Saint George at my best friends house, we went to the lake, watched fireworks, and played with the kids a ton. Then I headed to Clearfield to see my sister Katie and her newest baby Payton.While there my moms family was having their first ever family reunion. I had never been to a family reunion and so really didn't know what to expect. My Uncle does some work for a family that owns this HUGE cabin up Spanish Fork Canyon. Katie, Jayden, Madyson, Breanna, my Mom and I headed up on Friday July 11th. After getting lost for about two hours and endless dirt roads, my uncle came to find us. I was surprised to see just how much of my family was there. Some of my cousins I hadn't seen in 16 years if ever. We had a great time and it was really nice to have so much family together in one place. We played games and cooked and just sat around and talked. I drove home with my Aunt and Grandpa on the 15th.
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.
