Our valentine day was good, after school Austin gave me my
gift, and then he took me out to dinner for a romantic night out
on town. He is very big on the holidays and I loved it today. I
kissed him good-night and I love my husband. It's the 19th now
and we're at our second month appointment, and I'm dealing with
morning sickness now. Any smell of food I end up puking, but
Austin is being by my side. I got blood drawn and my blood
pressure was done, and my weight. I began out being 105 and I now
weigh 107. "You and the baby are healthy, I'm giving you the
prescription you need." Doctor Woods said "How are you feeling?"
He asked me "Good. Morning sickness is taking place." I said and
he nodded. I kissed Austin good-bye and we went to work. I went
to Alice's room first and she smiled at me "How did it good?" she
asked "good. Baby and I are healthy." I said and Alice smiled
"I'm glad. I love you." She said "I love you too Miss Alice." I
said and she smiled at me.
I did what I had to do and right before I left work I went
to check on Alice again before I went home for the night "Alice?"
I asked no sound, I went up to her and she wasn't breathing, I
pressed the panic button and the nurses and doctors came in. I
was doing what I knew and Dr. Hamm looked at us "Time of death
9:50." He said and I just stared at him "Isn't there something we
can do?" I asked "I'm sorry Lexie." He said and I nodded. I went
home and sat on the couch and stared out the window, Austin came
up and wrapped his arms around me "What happened?" He asked he
could tell something was wrong "Miss Alice. My favorite paitent,
the woman I go to see even when I'm not working. She passed away
tonight." I said "I'm sorry to hear that." He said and he held me
in his arms "Alice was like my grandmother." I said and he held
me close "I love you Lexie. 'He said "I love you too." I said and
he held me while I cried that night. I knew it was going to
happen, being a nurse but my first person dying me on, and
somebody I came close to at work.
That Saturday I got dressed in my black pants and my cute
black shirt and I had my hair down and I got the girls dressed,
everybody met Miss Alice at least once. We went to her funeral
and I went up to her family with Kelsey on my hip "I am so sorry
for your loss." I said "Thank you. You must be Lexie?" Her
daughter asked me "Yes ma'am." I said "My mom talked about you a
lot. You were her favorite person there." She said "Thank you."
I said and she smiled at me. We sat down and Kelsey sat on
Austin's lap he was being supportive, he didn't know what to say
to me. Afterwards we were going to lunch at his parents house,
Noah and Becca were going to be there too. Austin held my hand
and I kissed his lips "Starlet Alice if we're having a girl." I
said "I agree." Ausin said and he kissed my lips softly and I
smiled at him. "You will like Becca." Austin said and I smiled at
When we arrived Abby's first comment was "Who died?" "A
paitent at work." I said "I'm sorry to hear that." She said
"Noah and Becca this is Lexie, Kelsey, and Bella." Austin said
"It's nice to meet you." I said and Becca smiled "Hi." Bella said
to Lindsay "Hi!" She said "Do you like Barbies?" Lindsay asked "I
do!" Bella said "Well come on!" Lindsay said and I smiled "Kels?"
Kelsey asked and Jacob smiled "You're pretty. We can play with my
leggos." He said "Okay?" Kelsey asked and followed him. "How
cute." Abby said at them and then we all sat in the Florida room.
"There's a football game on." Todd said "Can we?" Noah and Austin
asked and as we nodded they left and it was just us women alone
with Abby "I'm going to go get some tea for all of us." Abby said
and we smiled "Okay." I said and when Abby left Becca looked at
me "You have taken a major load off of me. But I'm sorry. Abby
isn't that bad once they get to know you." Becca said and I
smiled at her "Congratulations on the baby." Becca said and I
smiled at her "Thank you." I said and we got to know each other
until Abby came back. We had an amazing lunch, we invited Noah
and them over for dinner the following weekend.
"I had a fun time today." I said kissing Austin, we were
home and geting ready for bed. "I can't believe we have another
appointment on the 5th." Austin said "We get to see our baby
again." I said and Austin kissed my lips "What do you want?" I
asked "I want a girl." He said and I kissed his lips sofly and he
kissed my lips. "Are you okay?" He asked me "Yeah, I am." I said
and he kissed my lips again. "MId-terms are March 10th-15th and
then we're on spring break for a week!" I said and Austin kissed
my lips, "We need to start studying for our mid-terms." Austin
said and I kissed his lips softly. We curled up together that
nigh and fell asleep. School seems to be going by so fast this
semester, I'm due in September and I can't wait!
Kelsey went with us to our appointment and she got to see
her baby brother or sister on the screen and she giggled, the
baby is developing properly and looks good on the camera. I'm
showing a little bit and I love it, I'm not so pleased about the
morning sickness. My back is starting to hurt a little bit, and
my ankles are getting swollen but Austin is doing everything he
can to make me happy. We started studying for our mid-terms that
night and after our last mid-term we went baby shopping, we got
the baby dresser, crib, changing table, a netural color playpen,
a rocking chair, the things that doesn't matter the sex of the
baby. On the 19th we went to the doctor's and the baby and I are
healthy, my morning sickness is gone. I weigh 109 now and I love
the feeling of being pregnant and having a supportive man here.
"What do you want mommy to have?" I asked Kelsey "Sissy!" Kelsey
said and I smiled at her "Bells?" I asked "A girl!" She said and
I smiled "We are all going to be disappointed if we have a boy!"
I said and Austin smiled at me and placed his hand on my stomach
and kissed the stomach. "I love my baby no matter what." Austin
said "Agree!" They said and I smiled at her.
We spent Spring break as a family and then with Allie and
Jake, I was working 4-noon every day and then we would do
different things for the girls. If we have a girl it will be
Starlet Alice Blevins and if it's a boy then it will be Brayden
Chance Blevins. "I love you Lexie." Austin said "I love you too."
I said and he smiled at me "Girls, how about we make dinner for
mommy?" Austin asked "Sure!" They said and they giggled. "Sissy
can I have a friend over tonight?" Bella asked "Of course!" I
said "Can you pick Stacy up?" Bella asked "How about we go now?"
I asked "Sure." Bella said "Come on. Austin, baby do you mine
keeping Kelsey?" I asked "We're going to go the grocery store."
Austin said "Got it. You don't mind?" I asked talking about Stacy
"Nope." He said kissing my lip and then kissing Bella's cheek.
Bella sat in the back "How are you feeling about the baby?" I
asked "I'm excited! I can't believe it!" Bella said and I smiled.
When we arrived at Stacy's her mom smiled "I will pick her up
tomorrow." Stacy's mom said "Okay, that's fine. Thank you for
letting her spend the night." I said and she smiled at me. We got
the girls settled on their sleeping bags and gave them their
pizza and Kelsey wanted to be with the big girls but they didn't
want her to, so Austin took her to our room for a daddy-daughter
