I Wasn't Kidding!!

Okay, so I knew my belly was suddenly hard and bigger, but I didn't realize by how much until I took a picture and compared!!! I do think the picture makes the baby bump look a little bigger than real life, but it's a good enough idea!

You girls weren't kidding when you said it'd appear overnight! lol

The Big 3-0!

I've decided that since 30 is the new 20, that means I can just tell everyone I'm 20!!!! Same difference right?

We went to dinner with some friends last night and had a really good time. I went out again tonight with friends and they totally cracked me up.

See, 2 years ago one of our friends turned 30 and I had to give him a hard time, so I bought him a cane. I kept saying, I didn't think we'd be around Elko for long enough to celebrate my 30th (we've been here for 4 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and didn't think about payback. :)

Well. This year that very friend returned the cane with a red bow on it and included even more items. Payback is a b****! HA! I will list them for you because it was really pretty funny :)

There was:
Hearing aid (cone thing)
Reading Glasses
Denture Cream
Ultra Healing Cream
Tired Leg Gel

So they made me pose with my gifts for a picture :) lol (Oh! And I wore glittery nail polish JUST for the occasion :D)

I did also get a really nice momma and baby figurine from them which was reallllly sweet.

Thanks everyone for the good time! 30 isn't so bad (that may very well be because I'm in denial!)

So I swear between yesterday and today sometime my belly got really hard and poked out even more. I swear. Like all of a sudden, just like that!! It's still way little, but it's bigger! And I still weigh the same!!

And I promise I'm finally eating!

And another random post just to say I feel baby moving!!!!!!!!!!! Last night and today like CRAZY!! For definitely real! It's the strangest coolest thing ever.

The best way for me to describe it is this: You know when you have an eye twitch, or muscle twitch/spasm? It feels JUST like that except on the inside!!!! And then last night I felt this "pop" and thought NO WAY. I can't POSSIBLY feel the baby kicking yet, it's wayyyyy to early for that, right?? But what on earth else could it possibly have been? I can't wait to feel it again! Craziness!

This whole baby thing still doesn't seem quite real!!

A Woman Over 30 Should Never...

So in honor of everyone I know turning 30 this year (myself included), I thought I'd share a few quotes from this cute little book I found over the next couple days/weeks.

A Woman Over 30 Should Never...

Wear Glittery Nail Polish.

I have the feeling I will find myself guilty of most of these :)

I always imagined that I would find out the gender of baby when that time came. I just can't imagine having enough patience to wait, knowing that option is available! Plus all the practical reasons: shopping for gender neutral clothes is not as easy or as readily available, gender specific is wayyyyyyy cuter, and financially it makes more sense. You can purchase gender specific items as you go instead of spending a ton of money all at once. I have the feeling the medical bills will sort of take over the budget at that point. That and diapers! Plus a baby shower would probably be more fun with a gender in mind, not to mention the ease of shopping for everyone else. Listen to me even mentioning a possible shower :) LOL

Anyway, I said all that to lead up to this. Mike has been on the fence about wanting to find out from the beginning. This really surprised me!! I had no idea he would feel that way, I'm not sure that he did either. So I kept thinking, I have so many weeks to talk him into it, right? Well now I have days that I think maybeeeeeee I could do it. Maybe I could wait. Maybe it would be fun to find out the old fashioned way.

But then I think about decorating the nursery. If it's a girl....I want it to be PINK. I LOVE pink and frilly girly things. I cannot imagine a nursery for a girl that's not super duper girly. I don't feel so strongly about a nursery for a boy. I could go with frogs or monkeys or dogs or sports in green or blue or brown.

So I'm very undecided. I have 2 friends that waited or are waiting. And was told by someone else very close to me that it was a lot more fun finding out in the delivery room with the one child than finding out with the others. My mom and Mike want to wait.

So maybe I could find a nursery theme that will compliment pink just in case?

The other funny thing is, I really really had this feeling that baby is a boy until I started coming up with names. Now I'm not so sure. And Mike seems to think that it's a girl :)

Baby's Heartbeat!

I had my 2nd appointment today, at 13 weeks! YAY for 2nd trimester!!!
Anyway, I got to hear the baby's heartbeat at 160bpm!

12 Weeks!

Countdown to 2nd trimester...One week!! :-)

I swear I felt baby movement yesterday. I did read that you could feel baby as early as 12 weeks, though most mom's don't realize that the sensation is baby and it's harder for first time mom's to recognize the feeling. I just felt a really weird fluttering in my belly. :-)

And I still have just the teeniest baby bump. Really I just look a lot thicker like my entire torso has expanded. I'll probably post another pic next week since I'll have my next appointment then.

Am I ever cranky tonight

Thursday, February 4, 2010

I can't believe it, but I'm already starting to feel a whole lot better!!!!! I still have a bad day every couple days and just when I think I'm done throwing up, I do it again....but in general I feel tons better!!!! I'm hoping it stays that way...maybe the worst is actually over.

Now I just need to find some motivation to get the nursery cleared out and cleaned up. Liz, if you read this: You should be grateful that you don't live very close, I might have to take advantage of your great organizational and creative skills :-)

I think we just need a much bigger house :-)
