6 Weeks Pregnant

It’s that time again. Allergies. Holy cow! Every pregnancy I get these awful horrible allergy symptoms. It is almost like having the flu or a really mise46277315_10156988882434674_2271180887968186368_nrable cold but with no relief. There aren’t many medications you can take to help. My prescription medications are not safe while pregnant. For now, I’ll have to manage.

There is no level of exhaustion like pregnancy exhaustion. I am telling you, if you have been pregnant you know what I’m talking about.  Not only am I pregnant, but I have a teething baby and a two-year-old who doesn’t sleep. My level of exhaustion is unreal this week!

I am hungry. So so hungry. Sometimes I am so hungry I make myself sick and then I don’t want to eat. Pregnancy can be weird sometimes. I don’t seem to have cravings but the one thing I LOVE that I absolutely cannot eat is Chipotle. This makes me sad.

That is really about it for week 6. Nothing crazy exciting is happening! Check back for more updates! Also, find us on YouTube!

5 Weeks – Pregnancy Update

Here we are at 5 weeks! 34 more weeks to go! I will be induced early at 39 weeks and no later. So I get to skip out on one week of pregnancy! Trust me, I am not complaining about that. Not even a little.

5 weeks started some new and fun symptoms. Joy5 weeks. I am TIRED. Like drop dead, can’t get up, can’t open my eyes, EXHAUSTED. Yeah, that’s a common symptom at this point. So I can’t say I am surprised. I am also crazy hungry. I can eat a full meal and 10 minutes late feel like I haven’t eaten in a year. I am starting to pee more frequently. Especially at night. I get up at least 3-4 times in the middle of the night. Exciting stuff isn’t it. Sigh.

Baby is the size of an apple seed. Baby is going to double in size over the next week. But the end of week 5 baby’s heart has started to beat. You probably can’t see it in an ultrasound though. Some people are lucky and do see it this early. I will not have my first ultrasound until 9-10 weeks. The baby looks like a little tadpole right now. It’s amazing how much it will grow and change over the next few weeks. I’m astounded my body can even create one child, let alone 3!

I have been eating healthy and watching my diet. I have cut out all caffeine, soda, and as much sugar and salt as I can. I eat an avocado every single day. This is a great source of folic acid for brain development. I also eat a lot of spinach and eggs. I will make sure to share some of the recipes I have created while pregnant. I’m sure you would love them!

4 Weeks Pregnant!

Hey there everyone! I wanted to give everyone an update on the pregnancy! I am going to try to write a blog for each week of the pregnancy! If you want to keep up with the pregnancy but do not feel like reading, check out 4 weekmy update videos on YouTube!

So 4 weeks. What is there to say about this. I am not that far along yet. Baby is the size of a poppy seed. Super tiny! But growing! I feel ok so far. I haven’t been sick. I do pee a lot but nothing crazy, yet! I’ve been having heartburn and headaches. I mostly feel like myself. It was the same with my first two. I didn’t start feeling much until around 6-8 weeks in.

4 weeks3I have my first OBGYN visit on November 19th. I will be 8 weeks and 2 days. I do not think I will see the baby at this appointment. It is usually a 2+ week wait to get scheduled for an ultrasound.

I am anxious to see how things go this time around. Each pregnancy gets harder. I am considered high risk. I hope my body can hold up to another pregnancy!

Surprise! It’s Pregnancy Time!

Yes, you read that right! We are on our way to having a third baby!

If you are new to our blogs/vlogs then let me give you a little introduction. We are Danie and Danny, yeah, we have the same name. We have two beautiful girls. Madelyn is 2 years old and Kaylee is 10 months old. I work from home teaching online and Danny works for the fraud department for a bank. baby3ann.jpg

We weren’t planning on having any more babies. As you can see by the title of this post, we were wrong. The other week I decided to take a test. To my surprise, this test showed the faintest line. I mean so faint I wasn’t sure if I was seeing a line or if my eyes were playing tricks on me. I had to go to the store and buy a First Response test. I took the test at night after my college classes and saw the double line pop up immediately. I was only 3 weeks and 5 days along. I was shocked.

So here we are, doing it all over again! Everyone seems to think we will be having a boy this time! Let us know what you think!

VIPKID: How I Became a Work From Home Mom!

Well you see, there’s a sort of panic that sinks in when you become laid off. I was laid off from my job with a 9-month-old while 4 months pregnant. We had just purchased a new house and sold our little two bedroom house. Twice the size, twice the mortgage. Now we had half the income. How was this going to work?

After being laid off for a while, I came to terms with the fact I was never going to find a new office job while pregnant. Regardless of discrimination laws, who wants to hire someone who will be on LOA after working 3 or 4 months. I loved my old job as an IT Application Specialist for our local school district. However, I was also working on my Masters in Special Education PreK-4.  I thought maybe I could find a job as a classroom ainewclassroomd or another education job while I finished my degree.

I started looking online for various job I was qualified for when I fell upon the Forbes Top 100 Work From Home Jobs list. At the time VIPKID was number 3 on the list. Currently, VIPKID is number 1 on this list!! I started exploring the options on the list. I saw I qualified for the ESL Teacher position listed with VIPKID. Below are the qualifications:

  • Teaching experience of any kind including tutoring, coaching or mentoring (1 year)
  • A Bachelor’s degree or higher
  • Eligibility to work in the U.S. or Canada
  • A computer and a headset
  • A high-speed Internet connection

I decided to apply, because, why not? What did I have to lose at this point?  So I applied.

Terrified of the outcome. The interview process seemed brutal. What if I embarrassed myself. What if I wasn’t a good online teacher. Then what? Still no job. Ugh.

I was so anxious to finally find another job. I studied every video on YouTube. I spent hours at my computer practicing and rehearsing for my interview. I sat around pacing back and forth after my interview for two days waiting for my results email. Thankfully I PASSED! WOOHOO!

I immediately set up my classroom, sent in my biography, made an introduction video and opened my availability. I was so excited to get started. I couldn’t wait to start making money for my family again! But would it really be that easy?

I made a great video and bio. I had professional pictures on my profile. But I was still skeptical. It sounded too good to be true.

IMG_9900I woke up the next morning to find out I had one student book me for a class! My very first student, Kitty. She was the cutest little 4-year-old. I prepped for the class, studied the slides, and tried my best. I was worried I wasn’t going to be good enough. I must have done something right, it has been over a year since my first class and Kitty is still booking my classes!

The next morning I woke up to find out I had booked 46 classes within the next week! CRAZY! I could not believe it. The amount of money I was going to make from those classes was more than my unemployment compensation was covering. I was so excited!

Over the next month, I booked many many classes. In fact, my first full month’s check was just shy of $3000. That was amazing! I had made more in this one month than I made in one month at my office job! To top it off, I made my own schedule. I worked dinodollwhen I wanted to work. My schedule was 100% flexible.

Let us fast forward a year. I have been with the company for 370 days as of today! I have never looked back. I don’t know that I ever will! I went from a high stress low paying job to a high paying flexible work from home job. I now stay home with my two beautiful girls (and another baby due in June). We have the time to go to music class, gymnastics, swim lessons, story time, and so much more. This job has been the biggest blessing.

I wanted to share my experiences with all of you. This job has changed my life! I know it can change yours too! I am going to leave all of the information about the company below. I will also link my YouTube playlist with all of the information on how to apply and pass through the interview process. I know this job will be amazing for you too! Please let me know if you have any questions! I am always here to help!
