Well, we've made it to the four month mark today! I am feeling great despite the cold I have. And guess what! I have belly bump pictures to share. I finally popped out a bit in the past week or so, and have something to show.
Hope you all have a very merry Christmas! and a happy new year!
People have asked me a lot about what I am craving, and up until these past couple weeks I didnt really have anything intersting to tell them. Sure, I want Pasta like ALLLLLL the time, and sure, I am really into anything fresh and crunchy, like pickles and carrots, and I LOVE anything salty. But none of these things are weird. There were no pickle and ice cream cravings, in fact that grosses me out, and no off the wall things that I have never eaten before, WELL that all changed last week at lunch at work. I sat down to a nice turkey sammy, which I hardly touched because I was so into my Hot Cheetos and Chocolate Pudding. Yes you heard that right. Amazing stuff, huh? I doubt i will ever do that again, at least not together, but it was interesting that I chose that and I really thought it would be the weirdest thing that I would eat this entire pregnancy. That is until tonight. Chris is at work, and I am bored out of my mind. There really isnt anything to eat in the apartment, except that trusty jar of pickles. So I grabbed one, and after much thought decided to have a spoonful of peanut butter with it. There you go, the worst ever pregnancy craving.
On a side note, everything else has been going well lately, physically at least. I feel great, I look better now that my face is done being a jerk and breaking out. The only thing that is bothersome is I am drained. Emotionally. I am so homesick that even typing the word makes me want to cry. Which is another thing. I am soooo weepy. I cry at home, at work, at the grocery store.. while doing homework, while taking a shower, and even while driving to work. I thank god every day for waterproof mascara. I long for my "lunch box days" when I spent the holidays around grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles and cousins. When life was more simple and happy and not at all stressful. I miss the snow most of all. I HATE christmas in the desert. I cant get into the holiday mood no matter how hard I try lately. But I just have to remember that this too shall pass, I will get through it, and hopefully there are no casualties along the way. And someday soon I will get to spend the holidays with our little bean. :)
Well, we went to the Dr. yesterday for a checkup and everything was looking good. We weren't able to hear the little ones heartbeat, which was very disappointing, BUT because of that we did get to see a new picture of the Bean! It was so cute because he/she had the hiccups and was bouncing all crazy. So fun to see it move, it made it really sink in for us that we are going to have a baby and I am not just getting fat. haha! I am starting to show a little, which is exciting, but I bet by Christmas the Bean will have made a dramatic appearance on my waist line. I am attaching a new Ultrasound Picture, and no you cannot see a pee pee of any kind yet, so don't get all crazy peeps! That will have to wait until about 7 weeks from now or so, just so we can be sure. :)
On the very bright side of everything, I no longer have morning sickness, and rarely feel nauseous, so that is a huge plus! I am clumsy, but all of your know that I am not exactly graceful anyway. My jeans are getting tight, as are my bras... just what i need, bigger boobs. But that really is TMI. Hope your holidays are wonderful, and I will update soon with more pictures as I have been promising!
Well we had a Dr. Appointment last week, all is well. No news is good news! I got my flu shot and got cleared for Clinical classes for Nursing school, so that was great. No new pictures I'm afraid. Maybe i should start taking some of myself. Not showing yet, though. I'm sure it will be poking out soon enough though. Morning sickness is getting much better. I hope that it is completely gone soon, so that I can start to enjoy this.
Chris is doing good, I am not sure he knows just what to do yet, but he will get there when he needs to.
So that's about it for now! Hopefully I can get some pictures of us up soon! That way you can see both of our pre-baby bodies, I am sure my cravings are rubbing off on him. Well, maybe not the pickles, but everything else!
Love you guys!
Yes, it is true! Our Little Sappling is in the oven and is baking away. Today I am 9 weeks and feeling the not so welcome pains of nausea. For the past month we have known that we are going to be parents, and a select few people know, but not everyone. So here we are to share the news! We are both very excited with what is happening and are looking forward to welcoming a new little Sapp into the family. There really isnt a whole lot to share just yet, but I will post the first picture of our little bean. :) In this picture he or she is just under one inch in size. Enjoy!
