Sunday, May 22, 2011 I havent written since my ultrasound, but thats only because I was trying to get around to scanning the picture on my PC and since thats not happened yet, I figured I better just write something LOL

We had our first ultrasound on wednesday...and not only did we see a beautiful heartbeat, but we HEARD it too!!! A and D were amazed that they could see it, but were even more so when they heard it. It was so awesome to see their faces as they saw their babys heart beating away. Since they have no idea whats on an ultrasound, the doctor was so great and showed them what everything was so they could totally understand what they were seeing. So baby was measuring at 7wks 2 days (so RIGHT on target) and was about 11.83mm in size. So amazing that something thats under a centimeter small, can have a heart beat...crazy.

After our appointment, A and I went for lunch and then headed out to where I live and had a gelato and then went to the midwife. I had not met the midwife we saw (the practice has 3 midwives and this one wasnt there when I had my last kid) but she was really nice and helped put us both at ease about what to do about the hospital (can A and D stay there...should I go home right away and let them have my room as they probably wont be able to accomodate 2 we have to sign something so that they have the right to make medical decisions on their baby, even though technically, they see the baby as mine biologically) So many questions...but the midwife said not to worry about it, that she would find out everything, contact the hospital, do what she needed to do to figure it all out.  We have an appointment booked for about a month from now and hopefully by then we will be able to hear the heartbeat on the doppler!!! So exciting!!!

Anyhow...soon I will get around to posting the pic I promise!!! Its not much but a blob but its still a picture!!!

I have the best parents

Tonight my hubby the kids and I went to my parents for dinner...its my birthday on Saturday and Madison and I are going camping with Girl Guides so we will not be around so we did my birthday dinner tonight. Mom make my favorite...Mac and Cheese...with probably 2 lbs of cheese and 2 lbs of bacon (that was split between two dishes and we polished off one lol). It was sooooooo good!!! Then we had deep fried ice cream for desert! Yum yum yum.

What was nicest of all...they gave me the sweetest dad picked it out. Aparently as soon as he saw it, he knew he wanted to get it for me because of what Im doing and the journey I am on. Its an earring and necklace set...the Celtic Cradle of Life....totally fitting and anyone who knows me knows how much I love everything Celtic. I think it looks like a womb with an embryo in it. He also chose my card...which had the following printed on it:

Like leaves upon a summer breeze,
Hearts are stirred by memories-
Those happy to remember things,
like childhood friends
and old porch swings,
Fmily storied told for ages
Daydreams tucked
between lifes pages
Teardrops spent
and laughter shared
Questions asked
adventrued dared
Memories stir the heart because
Theres joy found in "the way it was"

As you celelbrate today and dream of all thats yet to be
Take the time to think about a favorite memory
Think about beginnings and where your journey started
Look how far youve brought yourself
on paths that were uncharted

And know your in the memories
of other people too
People who are grateful
for the gift of knowing you.

I just thought it was the perfect gift and card for whats going on in my life right now and wanted to share. Here are a couple pictures of my new jewellery!

Dont mind my hair lol

Nothing new!

Just thought I would say hi though! lol Nothing much. Feeling great!!! No morning sickness (probably one of the reasons I dont mind being pregnant! lol) A little more tired then normal and DEFINITELY more hungry!!! I could eat all day long...except then I get heartburn from eating so much lol So I cant do that, plus, I need to stay healthy and not be a pig.

I posted on a local used clothes and toys group on FB the need for some maternity clothes and I got a whole bunch of responses and I totally lucked out and got some great maternity clothes!!! Ill get a couple new things, but for the most part, I dont think I need anything....oh except a new bra perhaps lol. My boobs are getting sensitive (which wasnt really an issue for me while being pregnant) and I think they are filling out a bit more (another thing that wasnt an issue for me). Oh well!!!

One thing I have been noticing is those nasty side uterine stretch know, the kind that are like a side stitch that just creeps up on you? Oh...I totally forgot about those...and totally didnt miss them lol But its a reminder that there is a baby slowing stretching my uterus and reminds me to take it a bit easier. So as much as I dont like them, they serve a purpose I guess!!!

Anyone has any idea what I should call this little babe? I havent figured out something cute to refer to it as...and I dont like refering to a baby as "it" lol I said, not much to update. I have my first midwife and ultrasound appointment on May 18 (two seperate appointments..just happens to be the same will make sure all is well and that babe is growing as he/she should and A will get to meet the midwife so Im super excited about that!!!
