There's Something In There??

...Well that's what they tell us! :)

Wednesday the 18th, Sharon, the nurse at the PCC (where I work) so kindly stayed after closing and gave us our first sono. I was too early to see anything on the abdominal sono, so she had to do a vaginal (Sharon and I are just that much closer now ;) The sono showed that I was 5 1/2 weeks, so as I'm writing this, we are now 6 wks, with a due date of November 15th. Yea! It will be done and over with before the holidays! Since I love, love, LOVE the holidays and get completely absorbed in Christmas, starting the day after Thanksgiving, I was praying that if we did get pregnant, baby would be born either before or after the holidays :) Thanks, Jesus, for listening to my "little" requests :) During the sono, it was Chris who pointed out the heartbeat first (so impressive!). The whole little speck was pulsating, and then we got to hear it. Pretty crazy that someone could argue that it's not a baby. It felt really great to have that visual too. Yes, the test was a "visual", but there was something in my head that confirmed that it was "really real" when we saw it on the screen :)

So far no crazy cravings, no morning sickness... Feelings of "blah", or in the words of my boss, "urpy", come and go (kind of like when you feel like you are starting to get the flu), but nothing quite to nauseous, and no upchucking :) My mom never really had morning sickness, so I'm banking on some good genes in that department. Of course she didn't give me her mile high legs or great bod, so I guess I'll settle for "good pregnancy" :) I have been so incredibly tired. I'll come home from work and take a nap, then have no problems going to bed at 9pm :) Funny story, a co-worker told me that when she was pregnant, she would just come home and lie on the couch for the afternoon. Her husband came home one day and said kind of annoyed, "What are you doing??" she said "I'm making a baby, leave me alone!" Hehe, I'll have to remember that one ;)

In non-baby news, last Thursday Chris and his dad planted grass in our backyard! Wohoo!! I'm SO excited to #1: not have a pond when it rains (since we hauled in 15 tons of dirt to fill the sloping yard) and #2: to have GRASS (not mud)! Real, green, plush grass! It's those little things in life that make it worth living :) I'm sure the dogs are also excited, since they can't be in the back to run around, and they have been garage bound for the last few days while we are at work. Marley has destroyed one too many things, so they don't get to roam about the house anymore during the day.

I could write more, but I'm going to wrap it up for now :)


  1. You're starting a family AND a yard?!? Could your life possibly get any better? :)
