11 weeks?! Where has the time gone?

Almost into the 2nd trimester already. God has been gracious to me most days. Still no praying to the porcelain god. My nausea has pretty much been gone since 9w. I continue to have headaches everyday which makes me tired. I know that relief is around the corner so I look beyond the hills for that valley.

I found out yesterday that my OB does an u/s at every appointment! So I get to see my baby every time! How exciting. Next appointment is Nov 3rd. Only 6 more weeks until the big u/s too. Not much more time to vote on whether you think it's a boy or girl. *wink wink*

9w Belly pics.....

Gosh, I seriously am going to be big with this one! I am still down 7lbs. Looks like I'll be heading into the 2nd trimester with a deficit! How nice is THAT?!

My 8w appointment!

Went in for my 8w appointment this morning. I have to say I just love my OB! He spent at least an hour with me and we discussed pretty much everything. Went over my medical history, got a pap (how fun *insert eye roll*), pelvic exam (more fun) and then had an u/s and got to see our baby!!

I am 8w2d today but the baby measured at 8w5d so he/she caught up and is ahead of schedule! Yippy!!! I go back Nov 3rd for my 12w appt. Here's the pic. The baby is lying transverse with the head on the left. You can see the little arm and leg nubs. So cute! Looks like a baby now and not like a tadpole. Hehe!

My 30th Birthday party!

We had my 30th birthday party planned for tonight. Sent out evites, gathered the menu, prepped our house.... all that fun stuff. Allan took me to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner last night and we had a fun time. I noticed how strange he was acting the whole evening. Just very nervous. I was suspicious.

So, we pull into the garage and he stands at the door, doesn't go in. I also did not hear my dog barking as I usually do..... my nervousness began. I said to him "Why are you standing at the door?". He reluctantly goes in and says something in my direction. Our garage door opens into the kitchen, so I go in the kitchen to put the doggy bags in the fridge when I look to my right and there was a guitar case lying on the floor. I said "OHHHH Scott was here! Who's guitar is that??!" (Scott is his BFF and since he was the one who had been having many correspondences with Allan that evening.. I assumed.) I look at Allan and he honestly didn't know what to say but gave me the "GO!" whisper. I walk into the dining room greeted with a "SURPRISE!!" by 25 or so of my dearest friends/family. Allan had this surprise party planned for the past month! That sneaky and yet very loving man of mine!

I had a LOT of fun and am grateful that he decided to step up and take care of it all. Pretty cool huh?!

On another note.... I am 8w today! Time is flying by.
