GRITS= Girl Raised In The South...just to clarify :P .
My name is Heather Nixon. I am 22 and have been married for almost 2 years. Today is the first official day off BC. I couldn't be more thrilled. Yesterday I told my best friend that I've known since 1999 that David and I were TTC. There was the usual girl stuff: lots of jumping, screaming, hugging and general acting crazy. It was such a relief to be able to tell someone. I dont remember how many times I told David I was about to burst...that I had to tell SOMEONE!! I couldn't think of anyone else I wanted to be the first to know of our plans to TTC. It was so nice to have someone that close be that happy for you. David has also chosen his closest friend and coworker to share the news. This friend already has two of his own and will surely be a great source of advice, having recently had his second child. Isnt it strange that we are more open to recieving advice from friends than our own parents? I know I am.
David and I did have a rather heated discussion the other night about my birth plan. I told him that I didnt want anyone else there; meaning the delivery or the entire day. He didnt much like that. Saying he didnt want to have to tell my parents to "piss" off, that they couldnt see me. I felt so guilty for having shared what I wanted the day I bring our first child into the world. He kept saying that they cared for me and would want to be there....so??? If i have to turn them away myself I will. We'll save this for a post all its own.
Till tomorrow..bless all our mommies and MTB!
David made it to London. Its about 6am and I've been up since 5am pacing back and forth waiting for him to call and say he got there ok. I usually wake up from the phone but this time I didnt, even with it right next to me. Go figure. But I was checking Delta, getting all worked up about the possibilities. But everything is ok of course, thankfully. Now I can look forward to my ebayed pregnancy books coming in the mail hopefully today. Until then its flash files from albinoblacksheep.com and others I've saved in my favorites.
Day 2-My Intro
Just for everyone to know me better here is some info on me..enjoy!!
Name: Heather Anne Nixon
Born: Feb 20, 1984, btw I did one of those plan your due date by your ovulation, and I'm due two days before my bday!
Junior at U of A Huntsville
Home: Madison, AL
Pets: 2 cats Kalle and Little Man
Hobbies: WoW (World of Warcraft...hubby got me into gaming) We spend most of our time in game with friends. We actually plan to meet them in July on our trip to NYC (and yes pics are a must and I'll share every detail.) I maintain a site for my ingame guild http://credendovides2.aowc.net . Its not much, but it passes my time. I love watching flash videos from different sites like albinoblacksheep, rathergood, and video.google.com is a great one too. It has the Bush w/ Bush impersonator White House Dinner file...hilarious regardless of whether you like Bush or not.
I was born in southern Alabama where I spent most of my time at my grandparents house. At the time I was living mainly in Maryland but was traveling back and forth a few times a year. I ended up moving in with my Uncle and his wife, and I've been there ever since, well until a few years ago. I moved out at 19, there were tensions at home, and our relationship has since improved, though there is still some thin ice. My marriage was somewhat of a surprise. They knew I was dating David but then one day I called and gave the news we were engaged. I dont think we've done a single thing the old fashioned way that sociey dictates is the norm. Other than waiting to conceive till after we were married. The thought of having kids has always been there for us but just recently started getting serious. Have I left anything out? I'm sure I'll think about it in time and will be sure to post it here!
My books came in. It was so exciting to be reading about this. Everytime the hubby goes out of town on biz I call his cell phone the night before, knowing he wont answer and leave a message usually saying "Yay! You're home...well almost!" This time I added the phrase "Now lets get started!" I am just thrilled about what we're planning. I can't wait to start telling friends whats happening. I'm horrible at keeping secrets like this and one little slip, even something like saying I'm reading, and them asking what, could be the end of this "little" secret. I do have a great idea for telling our ingame friends. There is a empty section of one of the major cities in the game that I want to use as our guild meeting place. I plan on calling a mandatory guild meeting and then on Vent releasing the wonderful news! Then when we meet in NY the real excitement can be there.
