1 year ago today...

We go from this...

to this...

Man how time flies!!!! It's been forever since I have posted, sorry if anyone is still out there reading or wanting to read about our lives! We have just been busy raising the little one and with the holidays! We got to go to Colorado for Thanksgiving so Luke's family could meet Autumn and we had a blast! She did awesome in the car! I want to post some recent pictures but all of my favorite ones I have to wait (til after X-mas so we don't ruin presents!!!) I promise I will update at the end of the week and post some pictures of our little one!!

Quick prayer request....I went to my dr. for a 1 month post op a couple weeks ago and she said I was still inflamed inside and possibility of infection so I have to go back in 2 weeks to see if it is still inflamed. If so, I will have to be put on antibiotics. Please pray that my body continues and will heal up on its own! Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and to all of you like us, have fun with your baby's 1st Christmas!!!! Love you all! Until next time...

What a week

Well, I haven't really came up with a conclusion, but somehow, some way, I did something wrong and still haven't figured it out. I don't remember breaking any mirrors, walking under a ladder, or opening up an umbrella inside, but apparently I did something to bring bad luck!! I recieved a call this past week from our bank's fraud department asking if we had wired money twice to anybody.! So I went online to check it out while on the phone and somehow someone got into our bank account and wired, not $100 or $200, BUT $6,000 out of our checking account to someone in North Carolina. WHAT????? Awesome! So thankfully I was at my parents house when I got the call visiting them and Autumn was napping, so I went straight to the bank and closed out our account and opened a new one. So this past week I have been busy cancelling our credit card, calling everyone to give them our new information, and putting an alert on credit report. The jerks managed to get into our account through Luke's online account to do this, how you ask? That is a great question!!! Luckily we have not had anything else suspicious come up so hopefully this is the only thing that they did. They were able to stop the 2nd wired transaction before it went out, but unable to do the first transaction. We will definitely get our money back which is a blessing! Hopefully they will find this moron and put his rear in jail!
On a good note....we had a good Halloween! Autumn did great in her costume! We went to a fall festival at my parents church to see everyone and to trunk and treat with the cousins! Here is a peek of Autumn, our lil sweet pea!

Now I'm trying to get everything done around the house and packed up to AGAIN move in with my parents for a few days when I have my surgery this week so they can help me take care of Autumn since I don't know how long recovery time will be. They say I can not heavy lift for 4 weeks, so Autumn better slow down and start stretching out so she won't hit the weight limit mark!!! hehe I love my little chunker! Well, hope you all have a wonderful week! Until next time...

Can you believe it???

Another updated blog post! Holy Cow! I can't believe it myself, and yes it is me updating, I didn't hire someone to do so! We went to Autumn's 2 month check up today and she now weighs 12 lb. 5 oz. (85%) and is 23 in. long (75%). We got a little chunker on our hands! She is nice and healthy! We got the go ahead for her to start sleeping on her belly which she is doing for the first time by herself right now taking a nap and I have to say, it is the greatest thing EVER!!! We have started putting her down awake and making her put herself to sleep for naps and there was great screaming throughout the house for a few minutes and she would wake up every now and then crying, but now on her belly...I put her down and she was out in 2 minutes flat with little fussing cause she wasn't use to being on her belly and I haven't heard a peep in 2 hours!!! Tonight will be our first night to take the very last feeding away and put her down earlier and have her sleep through the night without us going in there til morning. Wish us luck!!! She is actually a really good sleeper so (knock on wood) I hope it isn't a bad transitioning night. Well, hope you all have a great weekend! Until next time...

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Well, I met with the dr. and surgery is set for Nov. 6. She can do it laproscopically (sp?) which is good, but the only risk is that since it is so big, she said if she can't see a certain portion of my ovary tissue that she will have to take my ovary as well. So we are praying that she can see what she needs to and only has to take the cyst. She said the cyst does look simple by the pictures, nothing to be suspicious of (cancerous) which is great news! So now, it's time to store up as much milk as I can since I have to do the most depressing thing...pump and dump.

A few more pics!

Here are a few pics that we took last week when Luke's sister was here visiting from Seattle!

God is keeping it interesting!

Just a quick update, God is keeping us on our toes and doesn't want things to get boring around here. I went to the doctor today for a final ultrasound to see about my cyst that they had found on my ovary at the beginning of the pregnancy to see if it had shrunk. Well the results were that it actually got bigger and is now 6.7 cm big and now I have to have surgery. The ultrasound tech said the cyst wasn't simple, but not complex, somewhere in the middle (whatever that means!!) I don't know the date yet, I have to meet with the doctor next week to talk about everything. So please keep us in your prayers and I will keep everyone updated! Love to all! Until next time...

We are still alive, I promise!

Hello to my long lost blogging buddies! Sorry I have been away for 2 months now. As of right now I have a little time to update with some pictures until my little one decides to wake up, which seems like she always has the most perfect timing!! To all of you moms out there with new babies and can still update once a day or even once a week, my hat off to you!!! So, quick update, everything is going great! Autumn is now 11 lb, 2 oz as of this last week when I took her to the dr. She is 7 weeks old today! Yes, that does mean she has gained pretty close to 1 lb a week. (uh oh, I hear noises, go back to sleep!) She has been congested for the past couple of weeks, but Dr. Stephens thinks she is ok, just gave us some nasal spray to drip in her nose to help clear it up. And to let everyone know, we are staying pretty low right now, that is why you have not seen us at church because the flu has gotten so bad and with her congested, we don't want to risk getting around a lot of people. So since we are not out and about a whole lot, here are a few pics of our little chunk!!

I FINALLY see the light...

Wow...I don't even know how to start this post. It has been the longest, most blessed and stressed week of my life. This post could be a novel but I will just give the highlights of what has been going on since the day Autumn was born. we go!
8/22 - 12:30 a.m. - my water broke while sleeping; 11:46 p.m. - Autumn arrived after 24 hour labor!
8/24 - I noticed my back had been itchy where the bandaid was from my epidural, didn't think anythinig of it until I looked at my back right before we left the hospital and found a small light rash (looked like a heat rash). Nurse said use Cortisone cream 3 times a day
8/25 - Looked at my back due to itchyness and saw that the rash had grown from the middle of my back all the way down to the middle of my bottom (bright red, raised, looked like I got a bad burn). Called dr. who wasn't in office, scheduled to see next day
8/26 - saw dr. who had no clue what it was, either allergic reaction or infection...put on 2 antibiotics
8/27 - went back to dr. rash had not spread, medicine looked like it was working. Dr. said if it spreads I need to go to ER
8/29 - woke up with new spots on my side and back was spreading, went to ER, left Autumn with the ER, they had 4 different doctors working on my case b/c I had them all stumped about what it could be. Again, allergic reaction or infection? Decided it was an allergic reaction so gave me Prednisone shot and took me off of 1 antibiotic
8/30 - woke up to break out all over my body and rash still spreading, went back to ER...did more tests and blood work and it showed no sign of me fighting an infection so they doubled my steroid shot of Prednisone and gave me strong dosage of Prednisone to take to attack it hard for the next week.

FINALLY, the last two days, the rash has stopped spreading and the redness is getting MUCH lighter!!! The light at the end of the tunnel is coming closer! Thankfully Autumn is the healthiest and most laid back baby, so she has made this situation such a blessing! Unfortunately right now I have to pump and dump because of the medication I am on, so please pray that when this is all over the transitioning back to nursing her will be easy. I want to thank everyone for their calls and prayers during this last week, because Luke and I have definitely felt God beside us. We are staying in Yukon right now with my parents because Luke had to go back to work this week so my parents can help me out when I need them.
Love you all and hope to see you soon!!!! Until next time...

Autumn is here!

Just wanted everyone to know our baby girl is here!! Autumn Grace Carnagey arrived at 11:46 p.m. on Saturday Aug. 22, weighing in at 6 lb. 12 oz., 20 in. long. We got home yesterday afternoon and everything is going great! I will update more but just wanted to get in a quick announcement and a link to some pics of her. to nap before the next feeding....let the games begin!!! Until next time...

1 more week!

Well, I went to the doc today and not much has changed. Still at a 1, but the good thing is the baby has definitely dropped! So....she said she is going to give me one more week, so by next Monday if nothing has happened, then we will more than likely set a date to induce so I don't go past my due date. So please pray that Autumn decides to put the stubbornness asside and come early!!! Another good thing is, she said since I'm doing so well, I only have to check my blood 2 days a week instead of every day!!!! Now I can give my fingers a much needed rest!! Again, not a long post, but just wanted to keep family and friends up to date!! Hope everyone has a wonderful week! Until next time...

Quick update

Just wanted to give a quick update...went to dr. yesterday and she said everything looked good from my specialist visit! Since I'm doing so well, the baby is average size and my glucose levels are doing great, she is just going to let me go natural and not induce!!! This is a HUGE blessing to Luke and I because we did not want to be induced and I want to stay away from Pitocin as much as possible! So praise God everything is going great and Autumn continues to grow normal and healthy!!! I have yet to take pictures so I will try to do that soon and post them! Hope ya'll have a great week! Until next time...

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Let the countdown begin!

I went to my specialist today and Autumn looks great! She is healthy, measuring great, weighing in at about 5 lb. 12 oz. The doctor said it will be about 3 more weeks, but my OB will give me a date when I go to see her next week. Here are a few sneak peeks of Autumn from today...I think she looks like me when I was a baby from what we could see!

The nursery is now officially done! We got the last things hung up, so all we need now is our baby girl! I will post final pics of the nursery soon after I take pics!

Amazing weekend!

This weekend was a lot of fun! Started off with a good report on my nonstress test and then we got to play our new favorite game, Settlers of Catan, with friends Friday and Saturday night. Then on Sunday, we were blessed by having a baby shower for Autumn. It was a great turnout and we got lots of great things from friends and family! God is so good by blessing us with great Christian people that surround us and love us! Here are a few pics from the shower...

Me, my mom, my sis
My wonderful hostesses!
Amazing wall hanging made by Autumn's Auntie Em!

It is all feeling too real now that we have everything ready to go now, just waiting for our little girl to get here!! Speaking of....I am meeting with the specialist tomorrow and hopefully he will let us know if and when I need to be induced or what the next step is! Well, that is all for now, hope you all have a great week! Until next time...

New nephew

Last Monday, my sister had a baby boy! Leif (pronounced Lafe) Coleman Garner was born as healthy as could be!!! Check out the thick hair!
He looks identical to my nephew Finn when he was born...a little freaky! Holding him made me more anxious and excited for Autumn to come! I'm so glad that our babies will be so close together!
Everything is still going good, the only new thing is that I now have to do non-stress tests twice a week up at Mercy hospital until Autumn comes. So that means in the month of July, I will be at the hospital 3 out of the 4 nights (for tests and birthing class)! So if you need me, you know the first place to look! It looks like I have a new home away from home! Maybe they'll let me decorate my own room!!!
Don't really know much more, just wanted to give a quick update! Have a great week! Until next time...

God is good!

I went to see the specialist and came back with a great report! Autumn is measuring right, she is 3 lb 13 oz. They said she is on the smaller side of normal which is good! Not growing too fast! My parents and Luke got to be there in the room with the ultrasound so it was nice to share that experience with them. And to my surprise they did a 4D on her so we could see what she looks like! So, here is a sneak peek of our girl...

They also confirmed that she is still a girl and the Dr. ended on a 4D shot of that area which for my daughter's protection and humiliation later on in life, I will not post it! So, all is well and I will go back on the 28th for another ultrasound to see how she is measuring!

Picture update!

So, it's been a while and we have been running around super busy trying to get stuff done. Quick update on me and Autumn...I met with my dr. and nutritionist last week and they both gave me great reports! They said my glucose levels look great so I just have to keep up with my balanced diet and we should be good. Autumn is measuring great with a strong heartbeat! We will get to see her on Tuesday when I meet with my specialist at Mercy Hospital for special ultrasound to make sure everything is going well and she is healthy, so later in August we can have another ultrasound to check on her to see how big she is getting to determine how early they need to take her. Today we finally got the special project painted in her nursery and I am soooooooo... excited it turned out perfect!!! Here are a few pics of me at 31 weeks and sneak peek at the nursery....

We have just a couple things left to finish up the nursery...hang pics on the blank wall above changing table and find a small bookcase, and then we will be finished!!

We got to go to IKEA for the first time this weekend with some friends and had a great time! I couldn't believe we spent about 4 hours walking around in that store. I LOVE it!!! We went to see if we could find the last stuff for the nursery, and ended up finding a new bedroom suit for our guest bedroom! I love it b/c it is great quality and cheap in price! So the last project to do is redoing our guest room. The furniture that is in there now was my old white furniture that I got back in jr. high so it is about 15 years old. Once we get everything done in there I will post some pics.

That's all for now, I will hopefully post some pics we get of Autumn on Tuesday and have a good report from the specialist to share! Hope you all have a great week and look forward to the 4th of July weekend!!! By the way, I have a new niece or nephew being born on the 6th, so exciting days ahead!!!! Until next time...

Prego Update

It's a miracle....2 posts in one day!!  A quick update on my pregnancy...

I got my test results last week and I unfortunately do have diabetes.  I met with my OB-GYN today and will meet with my nutritionist on Wednesday morning.  I only gained 2 pounds this month (thank heavens!) and Autumn's heartbeat is nice and strong!  I will have to go in every two weeks for appts now to see how my levels are doing.  I will have one ultrasound soon with a specialist to see how she is doing and then will have one more before we deliver to check how big Autumn is getting and her positioning to see where we go from there.  I am now actually doing quite well with this new adjustment.  My dr. has a lot of background in dealing with diabetes and has put my mind at ease.  I just can't wait for Wednesday so I can have everything explained to me about what my diet should be.  I think so far I have done pretty good balancing out my meals/snacks during the day for right now knowing nothing!  That's all I know for right now, I will update later after my visit on Wednesday and will also update on our wonderful trip we just got back from and post pictures!  I will leave you with a belly pic of me I just took at 28 weeks.  Until next time...

Ups and Downs

This has been a week full of ups and downs. We finally got our pool up and going, not ready yet, but closely finished. Luke is getting our new pump today and installing it so we will not be the annoying loud neighbors that sound like they have a huge swarm of locusts in their back yard (our pump is dying right now). We are planning on it being ready by the time his sister comes into town in 2 weeks!

This week was the dreaded glucose testing week. I took the test on Wednesday morning and felt weird all day long. I got the dreaded phone call yesterday saying that I had failed it and needed to do the 3 hour test. Luckily I had this morning off of work so I could get it done before we leave town. My wonderful husband took off work so he could be there with me since he knew I was stressed. I will get the results hopefully on Monday, so PLEASE pray that everything comes out good. The Lord has His plan and I will praise Him no matter what the outcome is.

Finally on an up note, we are leaving this evening for our last big trip before Autumn comes. We are taking a road trip up to Colorado and Wyoming to visit different family members and to go fishing and camping with his brother. Wish me luck on that one! I already told Luke I don't squat in nature, so there better be a bathroom close by! :) I will have plenty of pictures and stories I'm sure when we get back next week!

Ya'll have a wonderful weekend! Until next time...

Wonderful week!

Last week was a big week for me! Sunday, I got to celebrate my first Mother's Day in Yukon with my family! Luke gave me framed pictures to put up in the nursery I have been wanting (pics to come soon) and a massage! Friday was Luke and my 5th Anniversary! I can't believe it's already been 5 years! I am so blessed to have Luke! He is a wonderful husband and daddy-to-be! For our anniversary, we went to PF Chang's and then were trying to get something for each other that we could enjoy and ended up getting a Wii! It was a great investment! It is so much fun and you get a workout at the same time (I need all the help in that area that I can get!) Saturday was my official 4 year anniversary at work as well! So big things going on this past week!

Besides that, nothing new is going on really. Autumn is doing great, I feel a future soccer player in training in my belly! I have to do the wonderful glucose test this next week that I have been dreading! Pray all goes well there.

We are getting ready for our last hu-rah trip the first week of June before Autumn gets here. We are driving up to Colorado to spend a couple days each with different family and then driving to Wyoming to see Luke's brother for a couple days, and then make the long drive back home! I'm making reservations for half way there and half way back to stay the night because I don't think my body will let me stay sitting in a car for over 14 hours!
And then the following week Luke's sister and her family from Seattle will be down to visit for a few days to scout out Oklahoma to see if they could move here!!! We are sooooo.... excited for them to come!!

Well, that is it for now! Hope you all have a wonderful week and I will hopefully post some updated pics soon! Until next time...

Sneak peek!

Here is a sneak peek of what I have been working on for Autumn for the past 2 days....

Thanks Jane for all of your help!!

Prayer Request

My niece (on Luke's side) had surgery earlier this year. Olivia has CP and because of her tight muscles her bones have grown in a different way than how they should. So Luke's sister Molly had her start a procedure that would cut both legs and rotate the bones and reattach the muscles so that she would have full range of motion and could hopefully walk better and maybe even without crutches. They only do one leg at a time so she has had one leg done. Post operation she has had a lot of issues and most notably she cannot feel her foot. The Children’s hospital in Seattle kept saying that it would take some time for the nerves to heal. Because Molly is a nurse she took Olivia to a specialist for a second opinion and they are saying that she has damage to her peroneal nerve which will cause her to have to walk in a difficult manner and not be able to do motions like stepping on a gas peddle. They are being referred to a neurosurgeon which is scary for the family and they are approaching the end of the nerve healing window. Please pray that God will work and that she will be able to have full nerve health restored to her leg and foot. This is all very scary for Olivia. She is turning 13 this year and this was supposed to make her more free at a time when freedom and mobility are really important. So we are asking for people to please pray for Olivia and our family during this time. Thanks!

Busy but very productive!

What a weekend!  First off, I want everyone to know, that I finally made my plunge into the 21st century.  That's right....I signed up for FACEBOOK.  Crazy I know, but my coworker guilted me into it!  It will take me a while to get use to it, but now you can look for me there as well!  

I got to take Friday off of work which was nice!  We FINALLY got to close on our refinancing for our house.  It ONLY took them 2 months to get done.  Feel the sarcasm!  So that was nice to finally get finished and start saving money!!  After closing I went with Mandy Stansberry to Target to finish up (or really start) registering for Autumn.  There are a lot of things out there which I don't know if I really need or just some new thing someone bored decided to invent!  It makes a first time mom a little nervous when she goes to an aisle that is completely filled with every type of bottle ever made.  How do you choose???  After looking for Autumn stuff we went to the lingerie area to look for me some things I will need when she gets here.  We both were squatting to look at something and both ended up falling and sitting on the floor.  Which to our convenience felt really good to just sit for a while, so now you have 2 pregnant women lounging back in the middle of the floor in the lingerie section!  "Clean up, aisle 13!"  After we got our lazy butts up, we decided to go and try out Orange Tree.  GOOD HONK!  My new favorite dessert place!  Seriously gotta go if you haven't yet.
Friday night was date night with my hubby!  Went to PF Changs and then to see Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.

Saturday, went out with my girlfriends to eat, went back to the Orange Tree!!! and then went maternity shopping!  I love Pickles and Ice Cream and seriously think I ended up trying everything in that store, but my thrifty self (and husband) can't think of spending over $60 for just a shirt or pants, but they do have the cutest stuff there.  After I dropped the girls off, I went back and looked at Old Navy (on Bryant) to see what things they had on clearance.  I couldn't find the maternity clearance and asked and they said it was all mixed in.   SERIOUSLY????  How am I suppose to determine which tops are maternity???  They need to do it like the one on Memorial Rd.  Needless to say, I left that section and went to look for Autumn some clearance clothes and was successful!!  Last night we went out with Luke's old coworker and his gf to see Wolverine.  It was pretty good.  Not big into action movies, but it had good comedy in it which was nice!  The only bad thing is that I think we either ate too much popcorn or something was bad with it, because both Luke and my stomach didn't feel good all last night when we were trying to sleep.  

Well, I'm finished with my rambling, but I did update right???!!!  Hope you all have a great week coming up!  I know I will since I'm taking Tues.-Friday off of work!  Stay tuned for some pics of a project I'm taking on this me...I can't believe I'm doing it either!!  Until next time...

Nice weekend

We had a nice relaxing weekend!  For once we had absolutely nothing to do all weekend, so we decided to have a movie watching weekend!  Friday night we saw Bedtime Stories (1st half was good, if you know me you know I fell asleep for the 2nd half!).  Saturday, we watched 7 pounds, Slumdog Millionaire, and Twilight.  I highly recommend these movies.  We also saw Yes Man, but there are a few scenes that could have been cut out, so you would be fine skipping that movie! 

Sunday was pretty uneventful.  Couple of cute things that happened with some kids at church... We were sitting in front of the Mullins, and I felt a tap on my shoulder.  I turned and Corban was smiling at me and said, "Hey Amy, I love you."  Talk about melt my heart!!  Such a sweet kid!  Then the Bialons were sitting a couple rows a head of me and Karli caught my eye and started waving, so I waved back and then she rolled her tongue like a hotdog bun and started sticking it in and out of her mouth!  haha  So funny and cute!  I love kids...they always seem to light up your day!

On a baby note... everything is going great!  These past two days have been a total 180 of what I'm use to.  I usually have only felt Autumn move once or twice a day before, but starting Saturday afternoon, good honk!  I swear she is training to run in the marathon next weekend!  I think I need to break it to her that her mom is lazy and not participating!!!  The neat thing is since she was kicking so much, Luke got to feel her move around!  And now for those of you who are out of town, here is a belly pic that I finally took tonight....

Well, hope you all had a great weekend and I'm so looking forward to this beautiful week of great weather ahead!!! Until next time...

20 down, 20 to go!

That's right folks....I'm half way there and this week starting to actually look pregnant!!  I had a dr. appt. today and Autumn is doing great!  The best news is that I finally gained weight!  I never thought I would appreciate the phrase, "wow, you've gained 5 lbs.!"  I also have finally felt Autumn move a couple times now!!  It is so neat!  For all the out of town family and friends, I will try to take a belly pic soon and post it.

Not a whole lot has been going on.  Just trying to get everything done and ready before August.  I did get to go with my sis and nephew to the zoo last Friday.  We were watching the bears, and one came down and jumped in the water.  To Finn's surprise, he said "I didn't know bears could swim!"  Then the bear got out after a while and went next to a tree, got up on his back two feet and started scratching his back for a long time on the branch....again Finn surprised, "I didn't know bears could stand on two feet!"  He watched with amazement and then said, " that a people bear?"  haha  (They call the Easter Bunny at the mall a people bunny).  We reassured him that it was a real bear and you don't want to get too close to it!  I just love kids outlook on life!

Well this will be a busy weekend for us.  We have the Fun Run dinner on Friday night, then Saturday morning is the Fun Run (well, for me, Fun Walk!).  Of course Sunday will be spent with family for Easter and then BK Sunday night.  Whew...getting tired just thinking about it!  

Well, I think that is all I know for now!!  Hope you all have a wonderful Easter Sunday!!  I love my family!  Until next time...

It's a.....

Long overdue updated post!!!!! close!!!! Don't worry. In less than 2 weeks, we will hopefully be finding out what we are having! I go on the 24th for my ultrasound. So pray that "Buddy" cooperates! So....I noticed that I have not updated for the past 9 weeks. To make things easier, here is a quick bullet list of things that have been going on in our lives and then a picture and quick word from Buddy...
  • I had a birthday on Feb. 2, so now I'm a lot closer to 30 than 20!
  • I went to my first and only Thunder game, and got to sit courtside (thanks to Denver!)
  • My most amazing husband has redone a lot of our house (painted living room & hallway, redid all the wood work and window sills in the house)
  • We got all of our furniture for the baby's room except for a bookcase
  • Made 2 birthday cakes for family birthdays (possible pics in the future!)
  • Got to spend Spring Sing weekend with my chosen in-laws from Colorado!
  • Refinancing our house (much better interest rates and a lot lower monthly payment now!)

Alright, now you can hear from Buddy....

Well, I'm 16 weeks old, and about 4 inches long right now. I have been treating mom a lot better lately so she can finally eat, but I still like to give her some trouble in the morning when I'm not ready to get up yet. Mom and Dad went to the dr. a couple of weeks ago and got to see me wiggling around in here. They also went yesterday for my routine check-up and got to hear my heartbeat!! The nurse said I'm doing great and very healthy and mom finally gained 2 lbs!! Here is a sneak peek of what I look like right now....

Well, if not before, I will update again in 1 1/2 weeks after they violate my privacy and let mom and dad know if I'm a boy or girl! Hope ya'll have a great weekend! Until next time...
