I weighed myself this morning and have lost a couple more lbs. So that's only like 4 or 5 lbs total but I haven't even thrown up in a couple of days. I thought I was eating normally, now I feel like I'm gonna have to pay more attention.

It's just so weird because my clothes are definitely tighter regardless.

Yay!!!! First Ultrasound!

So I had my big OB appointment this morning. They violated the crap out of me but it was all worth it to get to see the baby in there!! :) Unbelievable!

I have to admit, I started getting teary eyed as soon as I stepped foot in the lobby. Mike laughed at me, as usual :-) And then as soon as the ultrasound picture popped up boy did the water works start up! And then I laughed at myself for crying so much and when I did the baby started moving like crazy!!! Which made me cry and giggle simultaneously :) It was just....SURREAL.

Here's the ultrasound of little baby Warren :)

It's not twins!! SO I don't have to punch anybody :-)

Annnddddd....I totally didn't think I was going to post this but I decided it would be fun to see the progression of the baby belly to go with every ultrasound. It's kinda just gross and embarrassing :( But whatever! There's a baby in there :) :) :)

Feeling Fat and Wanting Korean Food

So everything I've been reading has been saying that my clothes should start feeling tight already even though there's no sign of a baby bump. I thought that was silly. Until last night.

Mike and I went out to dinner and I realized that this was the first time I've tried to put on jeans in a couple of weeks. I've been wearing my brown cargo pants just because they're loose and comfy every time I leave the house (which hasn't been often). When I put my jeans on, Mike was standing there watching me and he had this smirk on his face!!! lol I'm pretty sure I punched him :) Then he says "I don't think you're supposed to be wearing anything too tight". Thanks honey. So I went through a couple pairs of jeans before I found a pair that fit enough to go out. I think my brown cargo pants will be my best friend for the next couple weeks and it seems I may need to go get another pair. *sigh*

So the in between stage. No evidence of a baby bump (way too early!!) and yet the clothes are already snug. This leaves a barely preggo girl feeling super fat :(

Moving on.

I had another super weird dream last night.

Have you ever dreamed about someone you don't even really know? I did. I know this girl from a distance (in Lawton), she's half Korean also and we share several mutual friends. I'm not sure I've ever actually been formally introduced to her. In my dream, her mom called me and asked if she could make me a feast of Korean food on Feb 12! HECK YES!!

So I woke up thinking about this girl I don't even know and wanting some serious Korean food. I think I'm gonna have get over the cooking smells and make myself Korean food for dinner.

Food Aversion of the week: Pork and Chicken

Tonight I made pork. Cooking it was fine but as soon as I sunk my teeth in it was over. And then watching hubby eat it?? It was too much. Uggghhh

I dream about food all the time. Like I still dream about Wayne's like once a week :-) lol And I've had 2 dreams about it this week. I usually wake up thinking about food because I just had a dream about it. I thought that would get worse since I'm pregnant. But instead...THIS is what I dreamed about last night!!

I was 9 months pregnant and huge and my baby was half vampire!!! LOL Well the dream changed and progressed and actually came out 100% human :). He was a boy and I saw his face clearly! Do you know how weird that is?? To actually see the face of an unknown in a dream? It wasn't fuzzy it was distinct.

Holy moly, I am miserable. I am totally stuffed up and congested and there's not a darn thing I can do about it. Except maybe vicks and neti pot. I'm so stuff will the neti pot even work??? lol

Every time I sneeze it feels like I've pulled a muscle in my low abs.

just felt like complaining :-)


So this week its has been really hard for me to eat and swallow meat. And I'm not a huge veggie eater. So grilled cheese has been my friend. But today I had to be in town for an appt and suddenly decided a double cheeseburger from McD's sounded awesome. And holy moly was it ever!!!!!! lol

So now I feel guilty and decided we're eating healthy for dinner tonight. After spending some time reading another friend's blog I've been inspired to make Martha's Brick Pressed Sandwich. Mike's best friend's mom made it when we tailgated at the Bruce Concert. Course, they're vegetarian so there was no meat.

Martha's Brick Pressed Sandwich

-Begin with a ciabatta loaf or some other rustic Italian bread. (I just used good ol french bread since we afterall just in Elko!)
-Remove and discard the center of bread.
-Spread olive paste on the bottom half.
-Lay on roasted red bell peppers, fresh goat cheese, and marinated artichokes. -Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
-Lay on prosciutto and salami, and drizzle again with balsamic vinegar.
-Top with herbs (basil, cilantro, and parsley) and top half of bread.
-Double-wrap in baker's parchment or plastic wrap. Secure wrapped sandwich to wood cutting board with twine. Place a brick or a cast-iron skillet on top of sandwich for at least 1 hour to flatten (below left).
-Cut into slices and serve!

**Now you can use whatever the heck you really want to put on there. As I said, When our friends made this it was strictly vegetarian and they used fresh veggies from their garden.

So I haven't had actual morning sickness. I've woken up 2 or 3 times in the middle of the night a little nauseous and today's the first day its lingered all day. Not super strong or anything but enough to be uncomfortable.

And those of you who know me, know how much I LOVE FOOD. It's kind of the highlight of my days :) haha! And today I have no desire to eat. Anything. Food sounds awful and I KNOW there's something wrong with me in order for me to say that! lol I had to force down 1/4 of a sandwich just so I could get SOME protein. I'm crossing my fingers that this will be the worst of it!

Oh yeah and I feel like I'm shedding more!! I'm seeing my hair everywhere! I thought I was supposed to get MORE hair not have it all fall out!

I love sweet people!! And not so much a fan of negative people. Pessimism and I do not get along. That's all I wanted to say! It's soo refreshing to be around nice people!
