    Hurray!!! I can't believe that I've gotten to this point already! ime has just flown by!!

    Alright...so the introduction!!

    My name is Kalista and I just turned 20 last Monday. I was a linguistics student but I've had to take this year off because I've been so sick! My boyfriend is Ryan, 21, and he is in his last year of his advertising degree. He is incredibly talented and already has a job offer for when he graduates! We've been together for a year and a half.

    This pregnancy was not planned...I mean, I was 19, in my first year of university, still living at home and just all around not ready to be a parent. When I found out that I was pregnant, it was a huge shock. I was on the pill and took it religiously at the same time everyday. However, I knew that nothing was 100% effective, so I guess it wasn't that much of a shock!!

    When I told Ryan, he wanted me to get an abortion. That was probably the hardest day of my life. I was scared, sad, angry and feeling VERY alone. We talked about it and I told him I wasn't willing to do it and he stepped up and has been amazing during the entire pregnancy. He told me the other day that he is so glad that I stayed strong and kept this baby because he wouldn't want his life any other way. He has been the most amazing, supportive and loving guy and going through this with him has made me love him so much more!!

    Anyways, fast forward 7 months and here we are!! We have been sooooo blessed! Financially, we are farther ahead than a lot of couples twice our age. We have the support of our family and friends. We won a $1500 nursery. Overall, the pregnancy has been pretty smooth!! I have had INTENSE morning sickness the entire time but with a LOT of gravol, I've managed to live normally AND gain back the 20 pounds that I lost 1st trimester PLUS 22 more! I feel very blessed that everything seems to have fallen into place!

    Today I am alone for the first time in a LONG time...and I'm soo excited!! I'm getting my nails and hair done...then I'm going to get lunch and a movie and hang out in my pjs ALL afternoon!! It'll be a nice way to relax before I move tomorrow!!

    Anyways...this is long...and sitting is getting uncomfortable. Maybe later I'll post about how I got to this particular board!

    Here's some pictures too!!

    Ryan and I!!



    The belly at 35 weeks!!

    Lovin' my babies!

    Well, I've been super busy today!!! I moved into my parents new house. I'm going to live with them for the first year because Ryan will be finishing school and we can't afford to live in Toronto AND pay tuition bills!! My parents have been so amazing...and I'm actually really excited to have my mom around during the first year!!

    It's going to be really hard though...I'm 3 hours away from Ryan and all of my friends. I miss Ryan so much already...and now I'm crying again! The next time I see him will be when I'm in labour....now that is such a WEIRD thought to me!!! But I know that its all for the best and even though it's going to be hard, we'll make it work!!

    Before he left, we set up the nursery (which I'll be sharing with her), did all the baby laundry and got a lot done. I feel so much better knowing that I'm at least somewhat prepared for her arrival!

    I still need to pick up a bunch of little things, wash all our diapers and sew a few more inserts for them...but after that...I'll be good to go!!

    I'm feeling so tired today...and as per usual, the acid reflux is killing me!! I think I'll go for a swim later...I love feeling weightless...and having no pressure on any joints!!!

    I hope all you ladies are doing well!!
    Lovin' my babies!
