The Update!!!

Will and I are pleased to announce that we are being induced........... drum roll please..........................................................TOMORROW~!~ I am so happy and relieved. It has been such a roller coaster ride and they finally made a decision.. We had our OB/GYN talk to the perinatologist about the risks of inducing at 37 wks instead of 38 wks. She came back with the news that since my blood pressure as been high and my Protein levels are increasing it would be just as safe to deliver her tomorrow as in a week from!!!! We are so thankful for everyone that has been thinking of us! We know that we are the luckiest people on earth for so many friends and family that care so much. We can not wait to meet our sweet little baby tomorrow and start our happy family of three!!!!! This one time I can make an exception for the odd number!! YAY~~!!

hmmmmm.. pregnancy

What have we done?!?! My goodness.. I can not believe such a blessing can be such a trial! Let me make sure that everyone is on the same page! I am pregnant. I am due April 3rd and I am now 36 1/2 weeks along! I went my 34 week appointment 2 weeks ago and they told me I have some protein in my urine. At that time they told me it was +1 (or 100). Tuesday when I went in for my 36 week appointment the doctor broke the news that I am getting worse and that I am no longer allowed to work.. and wrote an order for me to be on "strict bed rest".
Now if you know me at all you know that on any other occasion I would have jumped with joy and the opportunity to lay in bed because a doctor ORDERED me to! Sounds like a dream, right!! But no, its not a dream, its a friggin' nightmare! I think it might only be fun when you are not supposed to do it!!! Just a theory I have..
Anyway, Wednesday, March 9 I started my bed rest and all day long I thought I may never be able to make it even one day! After work, Adele came over with my Grandmas blood pressure cuff and after three attempts my blood pressure was really horrible and would not get better. Will and I called the doctor and she decided that it would be best if I came to L&D to get some tests done and make sure that Bailey and I were OK.. We packed a quick bag and came on over. They decided they would keep me for the night and this morning when the doctor came to see me she decided that I was lucky enough to be able to stay for "a few days"..
As of this afternoon my blood work has come back OK but my protein has tripled since Tuesday and my blood pressure is staying borderline.. not good or horrible.. It is like being stuck in between a rock and a hard place.
I guess one good thing is that I will definitely update my blog!!!

My brother Jordan James Lewis is going to be leaving for his mission soon :(.. I am so proud of him and I love this picture of the My "little" brothers and me so I thought that I would put it on my blog so that if he ever gets a chance to look my blog up while he is serving in Guatemala City, he will know how much he has truly been an amazing example to me and to everyone around him. He is one of the most influential people in my life and I am so happy he is making the right decision to serve the Lord. The people in Guatemala are the luckiest people in the world to have my little brother serving them for the next two years.

I love you more than words can ever express Jordan. And I cant wait for my daughter to meet you when you get home! You are amazing. Return With Honor.

It's me! I know that I did say something on my last entry about updating things a little later that same week.. Well, that was in January. Apparently I am not a keeper of my word very well. I am sorry people!!! I know that my promises are empty to all of you now so I suppose I will just say that I am "working on it"..

So much has happened since January. Will and I got married on April 2, 2010. It was the best day of my life. Although I can't describe in words how much I love my husband, the words unconditional love will have to do. I am often surprised that no matter how many people tell you how hard marriage is, it never really sets in until the wedding is over. And the real world and all of its hard times set in. Through all of those hard times and "stressful... how should I put this?.. people" we have had to deal with I can honestly say I KNOW that I married the right man. He is my best friend and I can not wait to spend forever with him.

And since I am aging so quickly, Will and I made the decision to make our family bigger. About one month to the date after that we got the great news.. I AM PREGNANT! I am due April 5, 2011. We are having a GIRL! I think that Will is going to be the best dad in the whole world.

Not only will he make a great dad, but he should win some kind of award for being such a great husband. Talk about patience. This guy can deal with anything now that he has dealt with my hormones!!! I cant believe he has been so good to me let alone stay married to my grumpyness!

I am positive that I will be writing more fairly soon since I am going to need some feedback on names.. and nursery colors and all things new moms worry and deal with! I will not say when I will write next but hopefully it will be soon.. ish..!

A Small Update..

I realize I have been a little slow on the blogging situation lately, so here is a few things that have happened.

Since Will and I got engaged, we have had a few ups and a few downs. Wills father Rich lost his battle to cancer on October 25th, 2009. We are all still trying to adjust to life without him, but I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to get to know him and for him to know me. At the beginning of this year, Wills brother-in-law Past away unexpectedly. Will and his family are so thankful to everyone that has been helping them though the last few months and I know in my heart that our Heavenly Father is watching over us all during this time.

On a happier note.. Will and I set a date!!! APRIL 2ND, 2010. And yes, we are very excited... And yes, it is only 61 days away... And yes, I am so stressed out about it already that I am looking forward to being an old married lady!!!

This is just a quick update!!! I will post more about the wedding hopefully this week!!!

My Exciting News...

In case you couldn't tell, that was me yelling from a mountain top. On Tuesday, August 4, 2009 I officially became a fiance! I think it sounds pretty neat myself. In case your wondering, it was Will who asked, and of course I said yes. I will give anyone a very detailed account of the events (just give me a call) but a short version is that we went for a boat ride on the river and he asked me to marry him.

I can not find one word to express my love for Will. He makes me happier than anyone has ever made anyone. Anyone who knows me knows that I love a little reassurance in everything I do and he is the first person to back me up in all of my decisions and gives me his honest opinion everytime I ask him. He compliments me everyday and he honestly makes me feel like the most beautiful person on earth. We laugh together and cry together. He has taught me so many new things and when I might take a little longer that normal to figure something out he is the most patient and kind man. Although my family is not that hard to win over, they have all met him and they absolutely adore him.

So thank you William Richard Alexander for loving and trusting me enough to be your other half. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to become a part of your family. I cant wait for the next chapter of our life to start together.
