2 weeks and counting....

we decided to shell out the $80 to get the 16 week gender ultrasound....call me impatient, i know!  but the parents decided to spring for it so who was I to deny them in finding out early??  ;-)

Appointment will be March 15th @ 4:30pm.  I am placing my bet on boy, so who knows why I am finding out early but I digress....I am very excited nonetheless just to see this little one again.  Matt will finally be with me too so I am excited for him to get to see the baby too!

In other news....the stomach bug hit Matt and I over the weekend.  Ummm, being pregnant and not being able to take medicine=NOT COOL.  Also noted...Men are way worse patients then women.  Just sayin. (love ya honey!)  Finally feeling better today.  WHEW!  Thankfully we had Grammy Gram in town over the weekend and the boys LOVED having her here.  They wanted to play with her a lot which gave us a break....although I am sure she was exhausted by the time she was home.

Not much else new here.  I am 14 weeks now and now that the bug seems to have passed, I think I am on the way to feeling back to myself.  Ready to start eating right and exercising again.  I worked to hard to use pregnancy as an excuse to throw all those good habits out the window.  I also forgot to update, but I was able to get my Lifetime Weight Watcher status still.  My awesome leader dig some digging and turns out if you get pregnant while in maintenance, you can be awarded your LT membership immediately.  Yippee!  Totally made my day when I found out.

Hope you all are well.  Looking at my March calendar and a  lot going on.  Good thing I have my planner to attempt to keep me organized!  :)


  1. I was wondering about that change in the Lifetime thing. So glad you got that! You totally deserve it!!! So ridiculously proud of you!

  2. By the way, I hope it's a girl. I don't claim to have any psychic abilities, but I really, really hope it's a girl!

  3. So so so exciting! Congratulations to you guys! Happy to be able to finally say it as we have known since Christmas! Mary can't keep a secret! :). Looking forward to hearing Pink or Blue!

  4. The Art of Racing in the Rain was one of the best books that I have read this year, just based upon three things that I really enjoyed. The first thing that I liked was the author's simplistic writing style that was very easy to understand and did not slow me down while I was reading. Examples of this are shown when he uses slang terms and words. The amazing part of how Garth Stein did this is that he still shows us a great deal of important things and portrays key parts of the plot without writing paragraphs fraught with big, confusing words. The next thing that was intriguing was how it was written in the point of view of a dog; it made me think if dogs really thought the things that the dog, Enzo, thinks and if they really can understand what we are feeling or thinking not only by just our body language, but also by our words. The last thing that I liked about The Art of Racing in the Rain was how the author, Garth Stein, developed Enzo as a character and showed how he changed throughout the course of the story and his life.
