Updates!

Well...
I've been learning that I don't like hormones.
They make me feel a little bit crazy.

On Monday, I got to work. I was happy... and BAM an hour later, I was crying about everything imaginable. Things that weren't sad. Or that weren't that big of a deal. One of those being that I had a dream my mom died the night before and I kept thinking about it and crying... weird. (not that that's not sad.. it was just a dream)

The other little ordeal that has been plaguing me is sickness. I've always been pretty quick to get rid of colds or the flu or whatever. And I honestly don't get sick very often. But man, I've had the worst cold for over a week. Good news though! It's actually going away now! (fingers crossed) I spent my first night last night without waking up to the most painful swallowing in the world. It made me so happy!

But here are the bright spots...
1. I have the best husband ever. After my spontaneous crying spouts I came hope to this...


2. I'm feeling really good. I really haven't had much to complain about, now that my cold is subsiding.

3. I think I've been feeling movement! I say "think" because I could be totally off since I'm new at all this but I'm pretty sure... pretty really sure. It's been mostly in the morning time when I wake up I'll feel little flutters. But it's so nice to feel something in there! I really love it.

4. Our appointment is in 2 weeks! I thought I would for sure make Mike take me to a fetal fotos place because I wouldn't be able to handle waiting, but it's actually going by pretty fast! So I'm excited. Hopefully this time our little babe will decide not to be modest. And the next appointment means we are about halfway! So that's exciting too!


Well that's all for today. Things are good!

I hear that drinking orange juice right before your ultrasound, makes the baby really active, making it easier to get a good picture! :) Try it out! I hope you get to find out!

k i'm glad i'm not the only one that cries for no reason! I though I was going crazy (and so did brett). I hope you get to find out what it is this appointment!

I am so sorry you've been sick! :( And the hormones are ridiculous. I know. I bet it's a boy, but I can't WAIT to hear!!! :D

I've heard that eating (maybe something sugary) before your appt will also help. :) Good luck! Looking forward to hearing the news. :)

Drink some orange juice before your appointment. The high sugar content should make your baby kinda hyper..and I say should because it doesn't work for everyone. it did for me though! Good luck with everything!
