In the process of moving...

I'm so excited to be getting the heck out of my current apartment and leaving those issues behind us! We are packed up and waiting for the green light to get into the new place which should be tomorrow evening or Wednesday. The current landlady is still driving us nuts but we've decided to completely stop accepting her calls. Her rantings and demands just make DH and I super stressed and wanting to jump down each others throats. It's really not worth it. I'm so glad there is an end in sight!

In other news, I had a terrible time sleeping last night. It seemed the AC was so loud that it kept me up. And, as usual, I got up between 3am and 4am to pee. Also, I'm definitely starting to show (check out my latest belly pic addition in my slideshow at the bottom of the page)...I think people are starting to look at me and wonder what's going on with my expanding belly. After my NT scan on Thursday I will be ready to share the news with the world...especially since I'll officially be in the 2nd trimester this Saturday!

Good things to come!

Holy HUGE areolas!

I just noticed last night that my areolas have gotten larger. They're up to at least 2" in diameter! And they're peeling tiny flakes of skin too! What the heck? I'm going to have to consult with Dr. Google. Give me a moment...


Ok, I checked and all I found was information on:

Areola darkening - somewhat (Check)
Areola enlarging - definitely (Check)
Noticable veins under the skin of the breasts - yes (Check)
Soreness - was worse in the beginning but not so bad now (Check)
Breasts increasing in cup size - yes (Check)

So , nothing on flaking areola skin during pregnancy so maybe I just need lotion LOL.

Saw baby dance in there today!! It was awesome!

Look!! It's my baby! Today's u/s was so freakin awesome...baby was movin and groovin all over the place SO COOL!

This was my first appointment with the OB and we were so nervous, hoping everything was ok. We didn't necessarily have a reason to worry, but I guess when you become a parent (or pre-parent) you worry just because. I'm learning that now.

It turns out that my EDD is changed again...this time probably for good. Actually, the previous dates were all my estimates based on each measurement they took at the RE office. The OB said it will stay at 1/8/10. So we won't be changing it again on you, k ? Imagine my surprise when I saw 10w4d on the screen when I thought I was only 10w1d today. Yay! I gained some days!

My NT screening is scheduled for July 1st and my next OB appointment is scheduled for July 12th. Yay to getting at least 1 more ultrasound soon!

Things are...umm fine

It's so weird being pregnant and not really having all the pregnancy stuff that happens to share with everyone. I know I'm blessed to not have m/s (yet) and I promise I am thankful. It's just weird sitting here trying to think of what to provide as an update.

I feel fine really...I have had a couple of stomach aches in the middle of the night but I chalked it up to digestive stuff. They weren't cramps or anything. My skin has been fine, I haven't tried to strangle my husband, I haven't had crying fits. All of this sometimes makes me nervous that something could be wrong. I won't be able to check on LO until my OB apt on Wednesday. I pray they give me an ultrasound and draw blood work. I really want to double check my progesterone levels, just in case.

What has been consistent is my hunger. I get hungry so fast but then I'm stuffed even faster and I usually can't think of something that I really really want to eat...except last night when I made DH go buy some canned chunk light tuna.

Have I told you my BFF is pregnant? She just told me almost a week ago and I think she is also due in January but just later in the month. I think we're going to hang out tomorrow and maybe celebrate her news.

Anyway...I leave you with a bump pic from this morning (9w3d):

Yesssss!!! I'm officially released to my OB!

Woohoooo! This is definitely a milestone that I'm excited to reach! I went in on Wednesday for my last ultrasound with the RE. The baby was looking good and measuring at 8w0d.
We heard the heartbeat really loud this time which was awesome! They said I could stop the PIO shot (so the last one was on Tuesday night) but that I had to come back this morning for bloodwork to monitor the progesterone.
The RE's nurse called about an hour ago and said that everything looked great and that I am officially released from their office! I had them fax over an information release form (which I already sent back) so that they could send my records to the OB before my first appointment with them which is scheduled for June 16th. I'll be 10 weeks then and I think I'll get another ultrasound! I guess a couple weeks later, I'll have yet another ultrasound for the NT scan.
