Keepin it real...with the wild banchee

So things have been steadily moving along here in pregger duffer land. This week I got my a$$ kicked by my trainer (who is doing great things like helping me build up my back for when I have a hefty front load)....and I also did some yoga, some running, some biking, and walking. All in all...I aim to do at least 30 minutes a day. I've been dealing with some intense nausea and sleepiness.

I have another ultrasound this Thursday to check on the peanut. We are NOT finding out what we are having...so ya'll will be in for the long haul and a big surprise at the end. However we DID decide on names...

Carson for a boy
Kinsley for a girl

I'm excited...I really love these names and have for a long time. I had to coax the hubby a little bit (ok..so I had to put Carson with his Dads middle name..but hey..whatever it takes). Also my sister-in-law is preggers with a boy and they are naming him after my Dad. SUPER exciting!! Dad Jr will be born in January...and RunninDuff Jr will be born in March.

Other news...I never really talked about...but my Mom has cancer. I sorta avoided making it public on my blog, but this all happened when I drew that picture of rollercoasters...as far as ups and downs in my life. The rollercoaster ended up pretty good because I got my first choice job offer...but that was followed by the biggest downhill ever that flipped my stomach literally when I found out about my mom. She will be starting radiation in a week or so...and after that..she should be good to go. But then of course...the rollercoaster goes up hill again when I found out I was preggers. Welcome to my life...its a rollercoaster called "The wild banchee". Anyone wanna ride?

It's amazing how something so life affirming (like a peanut!) happen when we need it most. Praying for your mama - she's got the joy of two coming grandbabies to keep her spirits high I'm sure!

i hope your mom is ok. we just found out my uncle has cancer (mom's brother), but it seems treatable. i really hope everything works out for her.

So sorry to hear about your mother! My mom is a breast cancer survivor thanks to radiation treatments, and I'll keep your mom in my thoughts and prayers to become the same.

Hopefully everything will work out with your mom.

How did your Ultra Sound go? I was thinking about you today.

Your mom will be in my prayers, best of luck to her with her treatments.

Great names, I don't know how you can't find out, it would have drove me crazy! But what a nice big surprise in the end.
