Where have I been??
Around…. I am now 13 weeks pregnant and still quite tired. I have had a few bouts with morning sickness, which really slows life down. Blogging and even getting on the computer has hit low on the priority list.
The hubster is out of town, and has been for the past five days. I would have to say the first day was the hardest. We took him to the airport Sunday early evening and by the time we had been home a half hour, I was almost in tears with exhaustion. Lil’Miss typically gets a nap late Sunday missing her morning nap due to church and I usually get a nap too while my wonderful husband tends to Lil’Miss. Well with him gone and her afternoon being thrown off, no naps for us.
Around 7:00pm she finally got a little nap. When she woke up we took a little walk around the neighborhood. I have some single girl friends that live a block away so in the close of our walk we stopped by their house and chatted almost to midnight. I don’t think I have ever kept Lil’Miss up that late, but she had a good time and it was fun for me to catch up with the girls. It doesn’t happen very often.
I visited the OB this week and got to hear the Lil’Beans heart beat. I lay on the table as the doc poked around at my pudgy tummy looking for this little shrimp sized kiddo. It took a little while, but a healthy 150 bpm. I was laying on my stomach yesterday resting and I could actually feel the baby fluttering within me. I couldn’t believe it, but I am sure it was baby movement, wild.
I am grateful to report I am a few pounds less than I was prior to this pregnancy beginning. My appetite has gone down the drain and really nothing sounds good. When I do have a craving it is for something with vinegar or salt. Or the weirdest things like McDonalds cheeseburgers. I don’t even really like McDonalds, but for some reason it has been hitting the spot. I also have been urged by my OB to exercise often so I will have an easy labor like my first. I am trying, but I sure don’t have a lot of energy to spare.
