I'm about to be tired!

I start picking up hours at Dierbergs and St. Louis Injury & Rehab this week totaling about 56 hrs a week of work. Compared to my normal 36 hours a week. I hope I can survive the summer! That's the end of my social life. I will be working 7 days a week for the next 7 months. Yeah right!

Also, mom gave me my first baby outfit. Its cute.

I think we've decided on the safari animals for the theme.

1st Dr. Visit!

Baby is doing great! Yep, just 1. Justin went with me and was a good sport seeing that it took almost 2 hours to see the doc. We got to see the baby's heart beat. I have pics but I'll post them later. My BP was a little low but, ok. My next visit is Aug 5th and we will get to hear the heart beating!! Baby is 6.2 mm long today. I don't think I'll be eating rice this week since that is what everyone keeps sizing it up against. My nausea is getting worse but its easily cured by eating.

Its funny how everyone wants to tell you everything they know about pregnancy. Most information I appreciate but on the subject of diapers, we are going to use G-Diapers. They are a little costly but are much better for the environment. They are cloth on the outside with a disposable/biodegradable/flushable insert. Yay! There is a video on the website on how to use them. We do plan on using regular disposables at the newborn stage since we will probably be going through a ton! We are going to start buying them soon too so we can have a huge stockpile. (as soon as we clean out the nursery...)

So, any other advice is welcome! We've got this one figured out. ;o)

Nothing yet..

No real bad symptoms yet. Sometimes I feel nauseas but nothing happens. The other night I felt like I was trying to sleep on a little raft in the middle of the ocean, but it was just Justin moving his foot. I have been a little more tired than usual. My pants are starting to get a little tight but I have a few good weeks in them still (I hope). Pretty soon we're going to start cleaning out the 2nd bedroom to turn into a nursery but that is going to take a long time.

That's all for now.

4 weeks 5 days

No symptoms yet! I wonder if its because I eat well and exercise. Well, it is early still. I am still having that weird feeling in my belly. Its not bad weird, just weird. Of course it still hasn't occurred to me that I am the one who is pregnant, so it should be interesting when I get that realization. haha. Maybe when Dr. Clancy tells me I'm pregnant I'll believe her, not the 4 pregnancy tests I took that were all positive. Also, loving the pilates. I just switched to it from my normal routine. The breathing exercises are wonderful!

Guess What!

I'm Pregnant. We just found out yesterday. I can't believe it, I tested twice though. I'm due on February 13th. I have been feeling a little queasy and my low abdomen has been feeling a little weird. I describe it as the feeling you get right be fore cramps kick in. Its very dull pressure, but I've been feeling that for about 6 days now.

Check out my cool baby ticker!
