1st Appt

I had my first appointment with my doctor today.  Everything went well.  The scale didn't go up too, too much, which was good!  We were trying to hear the heartbeat and it was taking forever.  My heart was racing.  I was getting nervous.  Then, we heard the little train sound of baby's heart!  Whew!  I was so excited to get that bit of confirmation.  Silly, maybe, but it was very reassuring. 

The rate was in the 150's.  That's a bit lower than at the ultrasound.  So, who knows if it's a boy or girl now (according to the old wive's tales anyway!).  We will find out around Thanksgiving at the 20 week ultrasound.  It's just so real now.  I'm so excited for G&M!  I can't wait for them to come here for an appointment or the big ultrasound.

Not much else to share.  Let's just pray for an uneventful last 6 months of this pregnancy and a healthy little girl or boy to hand back to G&M!!  :)

Countdown of 5 shots left.  Thank God!  I apologize to anyone who crosses my path today - in person, on the phone, FB, whatever.  I seem to be a raging bitch.  Everything and nothing is setting me off.  I don't mean to tick anyone off.  This is just a bad, bad day.  I think I just need one of those long ass cries to just let everything out.  Shitty day, that's the only way to put it.  I'm ready for tomorrow.  New day.  New start.  Hopefully a new attitude.

G emailed me yesterday with not good news.  Her father passed away.  I am so sorry for their entire family.  That's never easy to deal with.  Please send thoughts to them all in this difficult time.

I will update after our doc appointment Friday.

Here we go

Nothing too exciting has happened since the last update.  I'm so completely ready to stop these damn shots though.  I'm so sore.  Every one hurts now.  ONLY 10 more!!!  It hurts to lay on my back and my sides.  I'm not a tummy sleeper, so I just twinge a bit each time I re-situate in bed. 

My nausea seems to be lessening.  This always makes me paranoid.  I know that sounds silly, but I get that way.  I am almost 11 weeks, so it would make sense for it to be going away.  The water at my house, filtered and not, seems to taste absolutely horrid the last week.  It even smells bad when I turn the shower on.  Hubby says it's just me....yeah, yeah, hormones, whatever.  I had to buy bottled water.  I never buy bottled water.  I think it's a waste, but since I can't seem to drink it at home, I had to.  I drink a lot of water, so this could get pricey!

I had to loosen my belt a notch this week.  I also drug out a pair of fat pants.  It is beginning!!!  Looks like I will be draggin out more fat pants in the coming weeks.  I just can't wait for the little belly where everyone can actually tell you are pregnant and didn't just eat an entire pizza or something.  :)
