We're on a BOAT!!

Yes we sang that song the entire cruise.
So we decided to take our "babymoon" since after the baby comes we won't be able to do this for awhile. We left from Long Beach and stopped at Catalina Island and Ensenada and then spent another few days in Cali after we got off the boat. It was a MUCH needed vacation. I loved every minute of it. We slept for about 12 hours a night, ate about 8-10 meals a day always followed by about 3 ice cream cones after each meal.



Ya we ate a lot. I could actually see myself getting fatter everyday.
Our room was this tiny little cozy cabin with an amazing view of the ocean..
Please don't take my ridiculous poses seriously, I just feel so awkward taking pictures by myself this is just what I do. So Jacob insisted as we leave we have to wave goodbye to the 0 people on land.

So anyone whose gone on a cruise knows that they are CONSTANTLY taking pictures of you and they have these stations where you can get these ridiculously cheezy pictures. So we of course could not resist, I could not stop laughing the whole time but this was the end result of our photo session. & yes I caved and bought it cause Jacobs face KILLS me.


Then on another night I go into the bathroom & leave Jacob for just a moment, and come out and find Jacob taking these....by himself.

And yes I am cheap and took a picture of the picture.
So the first stop was in Catalina where we rented a tandem bike and rode around the island, so fun. 
 I wanted this onesie oh so bad...(this ones for you Ash :)



& then I got these BEAUTIFUL new Toms thanks to my loving husband and it being my birthday the next day..
So the following day we got off in Ensenada Mexico and took a bus to La Bufadora which is a famous geizer there and did some Mexican bargaining at the lil shops.

The next day was a day at sea, Jacob was dying to go on the slide and for me to record him since they had a live camera that would show on the tv stations in our room. Hahah he waved the whole time so I would know it was him, even though that was farely obvous being that he was the only kid above the age of like 7 who went down it.

Yes we did some mini golf, even though Jacob looks like he's at the driving range..


Followed by sticking my legs in the hot tub which you can tell I was devastated I couldn't get all the way in, I love hot tubs :(

So following our cruise we stayed in Cali for another couple days and hung out on the beach, such a needed vacation and I hate coming home to reality :( But I guess we gots to grow up sometime.

The ER...AGAIN??



Seriously...if I tell jacob one more time that I need to go to the ER, I'm pretty sure he will refuse unless I stop breathing. 3 ER trips since we have been together! This boy has been such a trooper though. He holds my hand and stays with me the whole time even when I'm super snappy because I'm rolling around dramatically in pain.

So yesterdays ER trip started yesterday as I woke up and was getting ready to go to work when the pain in my left middle back started. I tried to get myself to work but the pain was so intense I couldn't even drive. So I called my manager while I was bawling due to extreme pain, drove to my Mom's, and was met there by Jacob and his Dad who give me a blessing and get me to the ER. I felt it was probably kidney stones since I have had them 3 times now and I recognized the pain, but I was so nervous because this time theres a baby in ther! After an ultra sound of my kidneys and one of the baby, turns out I have a large stone passing because my ureter was much "fatter" on that side as the ER doc described it. And the baby, PERFECT. It was so crazy seeing that little guy or gal again because I haven't seen it since I was 7 weeks and it basically looked like a blob. This time I saw its facial features, lil hands & feet, and a cute HUGE tummy! It was fun to see him/her again. I asked if she could tell me the sex cause the baby is measuring like a week and a half passed the due date, but she said she wasn't that type of tech that could tell its gender. It was so fun to see da wittle baby. 

So now I'm chillin at home, waiting for this freakin boulder to pass. I just hope and pray child birth isn't as bad as the pain I've experienced with kidney stones. Here are some pics to document our many ER trips.
This was the first time I had kidney stones when Jacob and I were just dating. I threw up the whole time cause I cannot tolerate pain for the life of me!
This was our trip to the ER on valentines day that was not by choice, I was really sick with the flu and went to my family Doc who told me I had spinal meningitis and needed to go to the ER immediately. I did NOT have spinal meningitis but did switch my fam Doc : )
K I know this is the UGLIEST pic of all time but this is what I looked like all day yesterday. They couldn't get any pain meds to even touch the pain it was so bad. 

The pics are from my phone so I'm sorry for the crappy quality, but this was our trip to the OR for Jacob's ACL repair. He may have been the funniest person EVER to coming out of general anesthesia. Love this man.

So hopefully we'll be done with the ER for awhile, pretty sure we've had enough trips there to last us for our whole marriage. Next time to the hospital will be in November, when we'll leave with our CHILD!!! So crazy.
