Wendover Trip

Steve and I FINALLY got a night away from all the stress and everything that has been going on in our life!  It was our friend Zack's birthday so a bunch of us decided to go to Wendover for the night. We had SO much fun just hanging out with our friends and gambling with everyone.  Steve and I defiantly lost, but at least we had fun doing it.  I was SO exhausted by 1:00 AM & since we were loosing we decided to call it a night.  We actually woke up the next morning and went and played Roulette.  We were winning and had almost won back everything we lost the night before BUT Steve has a problem walking away when we are winning.  I convinced him to walk away while we were ahead... So we went and got some breakfast and as we were leaving the casino Steve decided to bet what we had won on Roulette.  I told him it was going to hit black and his friend JJ told him it would hit red.  Well he went with black and it ended up going red.  So in the end we LOST!!!   

Anyone who knows me knows that I was a Wendover REGULAR... Before I met Steve, I would go down at least 2 times a month.  Wendover is actually the place that brought Steve and I together (:  I had such a fun time getting out of the house and just away for the night.  Ever since Steve and I found out I was pregnant we haven't gone out with any of our friends.  We always do our Friday night date nights together... we usually go to dinner and a movie (which I love) it gives us time to just be together and I defiantly think it's made our relationship so much better, but we haven't had friend time.  So it was a lot of fun being with everyone!

And the winner is.......


That's right... Steve and I finally agreed on a name for our baby!  Her name will be Taitym Lee Mills (my middle name is Lee) so she will be named after me!  I have loved the name Taitym for years now!  As soon as I found out I was pregnant I started to tell all my baby names to Steve.  He hated every single one of them.  We did agree on a boys name BUT after we found out we were having a girl, Steve started to be more open with my girl names!  I really loved the name Harley, I know everyone thinks it's a dogs name but I have always loved that name.  After we found out we were having a girl, Steve told me to pick 3 of my favorite girl names and he would choose out of the three names, so I told him the names were Taitym, Harley or Kaya.  At first he hated all three names but after he told his mom and sister the three names, they both LOVED Taitym so I think they convinced Steve to go with that name!  The more he hears it, the more he likes it!!

YES... That's right... We are having a girl! 
We went to Fetal Fotos today and found out the sex of our baby!  I had a feeling it was a girl but Steve defiantly thought it was a boy!  It took a minute for the nurse to get a good shot of her "girl parts" because she was sitting with her legs crossed but she pushed on my belly where he legs were and uncrossed her legs, so we got a good shot!!  She was moving around so much!  The nurse got a lot of good pictures for us.  We were able to count all ten fingers & ten toes! 
Now we just need to agree on the babies name... I have a couple of names picked out but not any that Steve is loving.  I told him if he let's me pick the girls name then I would let him pick out our boys name!!  So hopefully he gives in to my names!  I really am so excited to be a mommy and our little girl is going to have Steve wrapped around her finger.. I just know it!!

Baby Mills!!

So, I am sure everyone has heard by now that Steve and I are expecting a baby on August 25th!!  This was a TOTAL surprise to us but we can't wait to be parents.  Here is a little info on how we found out we were having a baby!

The day after Christmas, Steve and I went to the Jazz game with my friend Jena & her boyfriend.  I hadn't been feeling good all day, but didn't think much of it.  It was kind of a sick feeling and kind of flu feeling.  So went went to dinner before the game and I didn't have much of an appetite.  Well, the next day was Steve's family Christmas party.  I had felt sick all day & tried to get out of bed to go but I started throwing up around 1:00 so I ended up not going.  I just felt like I had the flu and was throwing up for about 3 days after that.  My mom finally convinced me to go to InstaCare on Wednesday just to make sure it wasn't something worse than the flu.  So I went to InstaCare and they asked me all the regular questions... "Are you on Birth Control?"  I answered "Yes." the nurse then asked me what my symptoms were, I answered "Pretty much just throwing up like 10 times a day and that's about it."  So the doctor came in and decided to have me pee in a cup and wanted to take some blood.  So about 10 minutes later, the doctor came in and said "I have good news, and bad news."  He said "I know why you are sick and I have a medicine I am going to prescribe you to help with the nausea."  He then said "Now here is the bad new, it might not be bad news but it's going to be shocking news.. You are pregnant and that is why you have been throwing up."  I just sat there and stared at him for literally 2 minutes and then said "SHUT UP... ARE YOU LYING?"  and he said "I am sorry Brandi, unfortunately that is not something I lie about."  And I just stared to cry... I sat in his office for about 10 minutes and just cried.  The poor doctor didn't even know what to say to me.  He finally just said "I will give you some time, stay in here as long as you want and I wish you the best of luck."  So I stayed in the office for about 10 minutes and realized I wasn't going to be able to stop crying so I just left.  The people in the waiting room probably thought I was crazy.  Well I got home and called my mom and told her.  I told her I wasn't ever telling Steve and I just wanted her to keep it a secret.  Well, she convinced me that I needed to tell Steve, so I called him and asked him to come over to my house.  He told me no, because he thought I had the flu and he didn't want to get sick.  So after about 20 minutes of trying to convince him that I really needed him to come over and he kept telling me no, I just ended up telling him over the phone.  Telling Steve was honestly harder than telling my mom.  I didn't know how he would react and I was terrified that he wouldn't be supportive.  He defiantly had a hard time when I first told him.  He was just worried that we weren't ready to be parents and this was going to be a lot harder than I think it's going to be.  I just kept telling him that I might not be ready right now, but in nine months I will be as ready as I can be!!  Well after a few weeks of letting it set in, Steve ended up deciding that having a baby was going to be a great thing and now, I honestly think he is more excited about having a baby than I am.  I honestly am so lucky to have Steve in my life, and I couldn't ask for a better boyfriend.  He is being SO great about me being sick and doing everything he can to help me get through this.  There are still times I break down and cry to him because I am scared and just worried that I am not going to be ready for this baby when it comes, and he is always there for me, telling me everything is going to be fine and we are going to get through ANYTHING.  He is not only my boyfriend, but best friend.  My life wouldn't be the same without him, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him and I can't wait to get our family started in August.
