First Photos

Today we had our first doctor's appointment and got to check out our little bebe bun. Measuring in at 1.7 cm, our little blueberry is going strong. We even got to see the little flicker of the heart. I teared up of course... I think Mark was trying to figure out what we were looking at. In his defense, it did look like a little blob on a monitor. We could have been looking at a butterfly pupa for all we knew! But, we weren't... we were looking at our future.

There are days when I stop to think about what having a baby means and I get a little overwhelmed. But then I realize that people do this everyday so it must be even better than I can imagine and we will definitely survive. I think I felt this way when we got married, when we got our 2 cats and when we bought our house too... and so far all 3 of those have been great decisions. We will do awesome.

I can hardly wait to meet our little bun... but not yet.. you keep cooking in there & we'll prepare the world for you out here.

Teenage Boy vs Preglet

Who knows what this is:

1 Cup of Nonfat Milk
1 Plain Bagel w/Light Cream Cheese
1 Bottle of Water
1 Fruit Smoothie (Berries, Pineapple, Banana, Orange Juice)
2 Hard Boiled Eggs
3 Graham Crackers
6 oz Vanilla Non Fat Yogurt
1 Peanut Butter & Honey Sandwich on Wheat Bread
10 Apple Slices
4 Marshmallow Bunnies
1 Bottle of Water
4 Slices of Cheddar Cheese
8 Saltine Crackers
1 Bottle of Water
1 Apple Sauce Pack
25 Peanut Butter Pretzels
1 Serving Orange Chicken
1 Serving Brown Rice
1 Cup Nonfat Milk
2 Joe Joe Cookies

To most people they would guess it is the food consumed by an entire family over the course of 1 day... but no, sadly that is what I am consuming on a daily basis. Variances occur... for instance yesterday I ate oatmeal instead of 2 hard boiled eggs but the pure mass quantity of food is comparable. Yes, it is true... I am pregnant with the worlds hungriest blueberry-sized fetus in the world. I have actually gotten to the point where eating is not fun anymore. You know the trick where if you make someone smoke 20 cigarettes in a row they won't ever want to touch them again because it makes them so sick? That is how I feel about many things. I am trying to push through because I know 2 things: 1) it is good for my little blueberry's development and 2) eating makes me feel better.

I am one of the lucky few that does not really have traditional morning sickness. I have not thrown up. But I do experience constant nausea unless I am eating. Thus, I eat constantly. I could put most teenage boys to shame! When your husband looks at you and says "an entire package of top ramen is not a snack" you've crossed over to the other side. You are at a whole new level. I am at that level.

Next post... why tights are no longer a part of my wardrobe.
