    10 WEEKS! Yippeeee.

    So glad to be home today. I am running behind getting all of my stuff done here but that's okay!

    Yesterday I woke up and my belly seemed to have grown substantially (to me anyway). It is sorta silly.
    I like it though. I had some weird pain thing by my belly button which I am assuming is an oncoming stretch mark. It was funny because it felt like a sore ON my skin, not on the inside. Seemed to get better after I put my special lotiony junk on it.

    5 days until my appt. Seems like I have been waiting for it for soooo long. I have plenty to say but not too much is pregnancy related.

    1. The landscape people still haven't come to put our line back in the ground after the sidewalks they put in. It is just laying in our yard which looks bad and is dangerous... We were told it would be done by tomorrow!

    2. The drywaller STILL has not come back to sand. UGH.

    3. We are going to see the TIGERS tonight! Looking forward to being with my friends.

    I think I'll stop there. Hope everyone has a good weekend! DH and I are still planning on coming up and over on Sunday!

    I like this time of day- AND the weather is nice. No one is outside or anything!

    Had a really busy weekend and now I am feeling it! Went to the game on Friday, painted the well ventilated garage all day Saturday and went to visit with family on Sunday. We worked at the cemetary too which was really hot and made me feel woosy. What a whiner! I was fairly tired by the time we got home last night. DH worked on final touches in the garage and I picked up the kitchen, etc.

    Not too much is new- we didn't do any shopping on Friday so nothing new to report there! Only 2 days until my appointment! YAY!

    Our landscaping irrigation stuff did get fixed but the drywaller has yet to call. We have the final deck permit on application now so it is only a matter of time.

    Thanks for checking in.

    So, I never really have thought of my car as my baby. That all changed last night. Starting at 3ish AM, it started waking me up every few hours...

    Now you are thinking, WHAT?

    Here is the deal. I drove over some RR tracks last week because the baby wanted some Subway so I had to drive slightly out of my way- a path I don't usually traverse. Soon as I went over them, I had a msg. on my dash that told me that my door was ajar. So, I stop, close my doors and the msg. doesn't go away. Everyday that I have driven my car since, the msg. is there and the dome light stays on. That is an easy fix, I turned the dome light off. Last Friday, we were driving thru Detroit and this person was panhandling at a stoplight and I got nervous so I went to lock the doors and GUESS WHAT? The drivers' side door won't lock! DH had to manually press the little lock down and then it was fine. HMMMMM- this makes me think that the door that is ajar must be the drivers' door. Anyhoot, 3amish, I hear one of the alarms going of on the vehicles. They are both in the driveway b/c we are working in the garage. I run downstairs only to have it turn off. I feel so bad for my neighbors as they probably listened to it for several minutes. DH checks it out and we figure it must be thinking the door is open again. We are both feeling quite angry at this point! I couldn't get to sleep worrying that it would happen again and I wouldn't hear it again so I opened the other bedroom door and window to make sure. Stupid me, didn't get the keys to turn it off- and it happens again at 5ish AM... DH had to get up around that time anyway so he got up with the baby that time! He also took the fuse out for the horn so we wouldn't have to deal with that again.

    My car diagnosis is that there is a fuse for the door? that is loose from the RR tracks. Had one of those loose fuses for something else when the car was brand spankin' new... Just have to go look at it. I hope my neighbors haven't taken a baseball bat to it, yet!

    My OB appt. is this afternoon and DH is meeting me there. I am excited to go but so very tired today! Rain doesn't help much either! I will KYP!

    So the short version of my appt. is that the baby seems to be doing well. She didn't do an u/s, , so it is hard to tell exactly but the doppler said the bebe's heart rate was 180 bpm. She said everything else, apparent size of uterus, cervix, etc. is right on target. We had another disagreement about my due date which kinda made me not like her but oh well. She was basing her estimations off of that 1st u/s which is wrong. She doesn't have access to the 2nd set so what do you do? "It's all academic- 4/5 days" To her. BLAH. Anyhoot. Before I went in, I took a nap b/c I was feeling a bit tired/lethargic. I woke up feeling completely STARVING which was just prior to leaving. I shoved down some nutritious soy dogs and chips and left. Usually at my appts. I am worked up and my BP is soaring higher than normal but today she took it twice b/c it read 90something/64. This is REALLY low for me but they didn't make much of it because they have no baseline to work from. Geegollywhiz. I drank and drank lots of water yesterday to help things-but I don't really know what the heck is going on. It is always so funny that the days I take off work I feel like it is a good thing b/c I am usually a tired mess. Must be the anxiousness leading up to it that wears me out.

    Next OB appt. is 5/30. That office makes me miss my RE office. Here I am suppose to let myself in, immediately give a pee sample that is hard to do and weigh myself before someone will acknowledge me and take me to a room. I guess that doc office must have had to make some cuts!

    The clerk person actually scheduled all of my monthly appts. which is kinda fun. She said by the end of August I will start going every 2 wks! They won't be doing an u/s there unless the doppler doesn't work until the BIG U/S on 6/27. We aren't gonna find out but still!

    Have a good day. Hope the sun is shining where you are!

    Belly Pic Time! You ask and you shall receive.




    It is really hard to label them by date so here goes a listing:
    3w3d, 4w2d, 5w2d, 6w4d, 8w2d, 9w6d, 11w3d

    Not too much to add. I had an exhausting weekend. I stayed up waaaay too late Saturday night with friends. Didn't get to sleep until 1230 or 1amish. Yikes. Sunday, I mowed the yard and tried to use our edger but DH ended up having to do that as I was too tired. I must have taken about 3 cat naps yesterday! We hung some of the organizing junk in the garage but I am not happy with it right now. I want DH to lower it but we'll see how that goes! We need another shelving unit out there but I think they run about 50 dollars so I don't know when we will get that. We want it to match the one that is already there so no cheaping out! Maybe by sometime next summer we will be able to park our cars in the garage!

    The postholes are being put in today. Inspection is tmw. so the dude plans on beginning actual construction on Wednesday. That will be nice! Thanks again, mom!

    Toodaloo!

    Not much new pregnancy wise to report. I am feeling better but still sleepy. I think I am fighting off something but other than that, doing good!

    Here are the final pics of the deck. Isn't it pretty? We were told it wouldn't pass inspection as is because the step level to the ground is 2 inches too tall. We are about to make a trip to the local home store to get some pavers and so forth to raise it up. I wish it would just be done for heaven's sake!

    And our little baby dog laying in the mulch! What a mess.

    Since I don't have too much to say these days, I thought I would start posting pics of the baby's closet and stuff so far. That is fun, right?

    Tomorrow is my 2nd Grow Study appt. and I am really excited to go.
    Will have lots more pics tmw.!

    This is a pic of a blanket DH and I bought over a year ago. It is soft. I love soft blankets!


    Yet another soft blanket. I hope the softness encourages sleep! This one is thin but of course, silky and soft. It matches the following outfits!

    I am gonna finish with the blankets and be done for today. Don't want to excite you too much! HA!

    My mom made me 2 baby blankets a few years back but I didn't take pics of them yesterday. I will get to that and load 'em up right here...

    Thanks for checking in!

    Hi! Here are some pics from today.

    These 2 are the baby laying on its' side...


    The first of these is baby's foot and the second is a frontal view (those are always a bit creepy in u/s format!)

    Baby was measuring 13w2d today! Wowee!

    We went to pick out the furniture too. What a dilemma. I went in thinking I would order the bonavita set that I had linked earlier but then was trying to decide between that and another one (white) but worried about the cracking white paint. After hours of being confused and unhelpful sales people, we found a cherry version of the white furniture and went with that. Here is the link!

    The crib: http://www.babyage.com/products/102-...dison_crib.htm

    The changing table: http://www.babyage.com/products/102-...ng_station.htm

    The dresser: http://youngamerica.stanleyfurniture...&nav1=YSTORAGE

    Thank goodness the store was having a sale, holy cow! It is suppose to be here in 8-10 wks. so we have to get moving on nursery ideas and painting and moving of furniture! Yowzers.

    Hope you all liked those pics as much as I did!
