11 Weeks Pregnant

Oh man! This week has been rough! My anxiety is out of this world. I have severed self-worth issues. I feel like the worst mother in the world. I feel like my kids hate me. I feel like everyone thinks I’m a problem in their li48041582_10157048088269674_2926889829901795328_nfe. I know these things aren’t true but I cannot help it.

This week, the baby is the size of a lime. Baby is getting much bigger! Woohoo! We are having another ultrasound too. We cannot wait to see our little one again!

A new symptom this week is round ligament and muscle pain. As things start to grow they also stretch. This causes a lot of pain. Later on in my pregnancy, I will experience a lot of pain that may or may not put me on bed rest.

9 Weeks Pregnant

Pop! My belly is getting bigger! 9 weeks is one of the better weeks! In this week baby has been promoted from an embryo to a fetus! The risk for miscarriage drops significantly.  Also, around this time the heartbeat may be picked up by a fetal doppler. I own a doppler but was unable to find a heartbeat. No worries! I have a retroverted uterus making it hard to pick up the heartbeat. 47233939_10157025114429674_1126284452444504064_n

In week 9, the baby is the size of a cherry. He or she is almost an inch long! I have the same symptoms from the previous weeks. Headaches, anxiety, exhausted, and hungry. One new symptom this week is heartburn. I experienced heartburn with my first pregnancy before I even saw a positive test. This time it hasn’t been so bad. I am anxiously waiting for the second trimester hoping I will see an improvement.

This week is always very exciting! Most moms to be haveus8 weeks their first ultrasound around this time. My first ultrasound was great! The baby is right on track and very healthy! What will it be? He or She? You’ll just have to wait and see! That’s right, we are not going to find out the gender of out little peanut. We didn’t find out with our other pregnancies either. I love the surprise at the end!

Today, the baby is the size of a raspberry! He or she is a little over half an inch long! Grow baby grow! You can see our little nugget on the right. The little white ball 46720533_10157018881564674_6854453838011695104_nis the yolk sack. The placenta has not taken over just yet.

I still cannot sleep due to anxiety. I get very anxious and have panic attacks at night. I am STARVING but I have no appetite. I am also experiencing headaches every single day. How frustrating. My migraine pills and preventatives are not safe for the little one. I am unable to take any of my medications while pregnant.

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!
