Grocery Shopping

I went to Wal-mart on my way home from work today. It was the most interesting trip I've ever had. I went in for V8. I haven't had any veggies in quite a while, so I thought I might try drinking them. I got sidetracked in the cereal aisle and ended up smelling the best thing ever. I was sniffing at the bags and boxes...just getting colder, then I turned around and saw the coffee! I started smelling the cans and bags and then I found it! Someone had spilled a lot of the fresh beans. I couldn't tell if they were vanilla or hazelnut, but I was smitten. I stayed there for several minutes just breathing in all of the glorious warm smell. I even laughed out loud with pleasure! When I was able to pull myself away I wandered back to see if they had any cheesecake, that's when I passed the tilapia and decided that would be great. No cheesecake, so I grabbed a bag of oreos and headed to the checkout. It was there I found a teeny-tiny bag of flamin' hot cheetos. I got those too, and started eating them before I was even out of the store. So my purchases were as follows:

Pregnancy is so wonderfully weird.

Spill the Beans

We're going to have a baby. Today was amazing. I had my first ultrasound and second prenatal appointment. The ultrasound was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.

Okay, just to clarify now: I have instinctively been calling the baby "she." We don't REALLY know what we're having yet. So my references to she and her are just me following my gut for now. I really have no preference about the sex of our baby.

I am carrying the cutest baby ever ;)! During the ultrasound she was moving all over, I call it dancing. She would surge and move and it tickled me, not literally. It made my heart happy. I could see her waving her arms around and kicking her legs about. The best part, for me, was looking at her little hands. You can actually see her fingers, ALL OF THEM! Except that she usually has her thumbs tucked. And she has a sweet little belly and a wonderfully large head. I think she has a pointy chin, I credit that to Jake. I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET HER (or him)!!! I'm giddy. After the ultrasound I met with my doctor and we listened to her heart. It sounded like standing right next to a train as it goes by. Perfect.

Aside from all of the wonderful things that happened today, I am hoping to leave the whole sickness thing behind really soon. I started throwing up pretty much right after we found out. I'll have to admit that my last blog had a great deal to do with a craving. I actually haven't had many. The very thought of food has turned my stomach. I can now think of it, but it still isn't always my friend. Instead of throwing up 3-4 times a day, I'm down to about that much per week, though I think its on its way out - I HOPE! I've put some videos on youtube. I recorded parts of the ultrasound and the heartbeat for Jake. I've watched them so many times today. Anywho, it's way passed my 9 o'clock bedtime. Yes, I'm that tired every night.

Here are the links for youtube:

The first two are different sections of the ultrasound and the last is the heartbeat and my doctor too.
