Shower @ The Jones!

On 5/22/2011, Katie Jones, Kathy Jones, Megan Jones, and Kelsey Finney threw Baby Preston and I the most fabulous shower! We had such a great time and got so many wonderful things! I am so thankful to have such wonderful people in my life like the Jones girls to do this for me!  Thanks again from the bottom of my heart for throwing this wonderful shower.  You guys are like a 2nd family to me and I can't wait for Baby Preston to meet all of you! Lots of love! 

32 Weeks Pregnant!

Hey guys!
This has really been an interesting couple of months!  I have no reason not to have blogged except for the fact that we have been getting ready for our precious angel!  We have spent many hours in his room getting it just the way we want it!  I am slightly OCD so you know what that means! It must be perfect!   Its crazy to believe that we are only 8 weeks out from my due date! We know that Dr. Cole is going to take him at 37 weeks so we are really only 5 weeks from meeting our precious angel
     As I look back over this whole experience, it is pretty unbelievable to believe what a miracle baby Preston Hampton Gough IV is truly going to be.  After having the miscarriage, it was really unsure if we would be able to even carry a baby much less get him to where we are today!  Dr. Cole tells me each time we go for a check up that she didn't think we would ever get this far.  This road has not been easy and has been an emotional roller coaster.  We have worried about him every step of the way and constantly worry that something is going to happen to him.  We meet a huge milestone this week by carrying him to 32 weeks.  This is where the Drs say that the risk of premature complications decrease A TON! We are so thankful that God has gotten us this far!  
     I went to the Dr on 6/9/2011 for my 32 weeks check up.  While I was there, I explained to Dr Cole that I have been having alot of tightening in my stomach and have had some lower back pain. This is not exactly what she wanted to hear.  She immediately told me that I would be put on bed rest till the following Tuesday and that she would bring me back in for a ultrasound and to determine if I would be able to return back to work!   I was not shocked by this new.  To be honest with you, I really thought that she would have put me on bed rest much earlier than she did.  She is trying to get us a little farther along before we meet our baby boy so hopefully he will be a good weight and will not have to spend much time in the NICU  unit. 
     Please continue to pray for us as we get closer and closer to our due date.  We are ready to meet our baby boy but know that its best for him to stay in just a little bit longer.  I promise I will keep you guys updated from now on! I should have plenty of time on my hands! :) I am currently downloading pictures from all of my showers so will be blogging on those this afternoon!

BABY OH BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Preston and I are sooo thrilled to announce that we are 12 weeks pregnant! 
I know what you are thinking! How did you keep it that long?? Its so easy to keep it once you have had a bad experience! Preston and I have prayed sooo hard for this precious miracle and its health! Today, we went to see Dr. Cole and she told us that everything look perfect and that she really thought things were going to work out this time! What?? Things are going to actually work out for us! Yay!!! GOD IS SOOO GOOD! Preston and I found out we were pregnant Thanksgiving Day and we have been so excited since then!
 This was the picture that we gave our parents over Christmas to announce to them that we were pregnant! Our parents were so precious and both sooo excited! You could tell they were as anxious and scared as we were! Preston and I have been so very nervous over the last several weeks and just praying that everything would go well.  AND IT HAS! 
This is our precious angel that we have been praying for!! How cute is he/she!  I really think that he/she looks like me! haha! 

I want to take two seconds and get sentimental.  I want to thank each and everyone of you for all the prayers, love, and support that you have given me and Preston over the last year! Without each of you and your prayers, Preston and I would not be where we are today!! 

Here is the moto I am going by at this moment:

They came back here and had a wedding celebration Saturday night! Preston and I had such a good time. I do have to say that the highlight of the night was the photo booth that they had set up! Here are some pictures from the photo booth:

Egg Bowl 2010!!!

Hey my blogger buddies! It has been soo long since I posted! Did you think I had forgotten about you?!? I know you get tired of me saying this but Preston and I have been so busy lately and I really just have not had time to get on her and update!! I want to wish everyone a happy "late" Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a great holiday full with love and family! I know Preston and I sure did! We were lucky enough to get to spend the day with both of our families! People always ask me if I miss going to Thanksgiving with my family when I am with Prestons family? First, I don't consider our families separate! Prestons family is also my family and I love spending time with them! Second of all, we always try to get by and see both of our families!! We are very lucky in that since!

Yesterday, Preston and I got to continue our love for Mississippi State Football! We went to the Egg bowl! And for you guys that don't know... MSU WON!!!! It was such an exciting game! Preston and I love going to MSU football games especially out of town ones! Thanks so much to our best friends Matt and Jenna Nassar for allowing us (and my parents) to come into their tailgate and letting us tailgate with them! We had such a great time and it was even better considering the Dawgs pulled out a big win!
Preston and I at the tailgate! 
My precious parents! We would not imagine going to the games with anyone else! It is such a family tradition that we have all started! My sister and her family were not at this one but they are usually right there with us! 
Our wonderful friends Matt and Jenna! Thanks again for letting us come in you guys tailgate with the wrong colors on! Or should I say right colors on :) 

Ok so now I am going to get on a roll! The following picture is one of the stickers that Ole Miss had printed up for this game! Kick the Hicks!!! Really??? Really?? We are all front the same state! You are just as much as a hick as I am.  As a matter of fact, you live right next door!!! Ok I am done!! Thanks for allowing me to vent.....again! 

Since the stickers made us made, we decided to make them funny! This was the sticker that Preston was wearing at the game! If we are hicks then we should say GO HICKS GO because these hicks beat you!!! 
We also thought it would be fun to make some others sticks like this one that says Hotty Teddy! 

So, I have always heard about Oxford and how much fun the grove was! It is very fun and a great school! I just saw some funny sights and thought I would blog about them! I spent most of the afternoon in the grove looking for funny things that made me laugh!! Please note that I am very aware that their are crazy people that come to Starkville and I am sure that I could get the same number or more funny pictures of people in Starkville! 

This is a picture of the grove.  Can you spot the State tent?? HAHA! Those are some brave and devoted state fans!
This was the guy that kept walking around trying to sale drinks! This was just hillarious! 

I saw this lady tailgating! Ok really? A full fur coat at a football game! Whatever Works for you!

I have nothing to say about this one! Colonel Reb?!?
This sign explains itself! Go dawgs! 
This was the score board at the end of the game! Way to go Dawgs!!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and I promise I will get better about blogging! We really dont have much going on this week so hopefully I will be able to find somethings to blog about!
