Second Trimester BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!

So today marks the beginning of my second trimester. I am so excited to be done with weeks 1-12. This means a few things to me:

1. I am that much closer to meeting my little bean
2. I am on my way to feeling better and having my appetite back (and getting fatter)
3. I am somewhat in the clear in the way of my bean being safe and staying with us for the remainder of this pregnancy

Here is what our little bean looks like now:

Its Tuesday but it Feels Like a Monday!!!

Thank god there are only four days this week. I am so tired and really have no interest in being anywhere but home. I have so many things on my to-do list but again, I just want to be home, in bed or on the couch. I guess its just one of those days. I woke up with a headache, I was nauseous and freezing! In my book that's a perfect couch day. I could curl up with a good book or watch some trashy reality shows that I have DVR'ed.

Yesterday Owen and I had the day off for Martin Luther King Jr. day. We didnt do much all day. I am lacking big time in the energy dept. I took him to Subway (his favorite place to eat) for dinner and then we played in his room for the remainder of the night.

Brian had a great day as well. Although he worked he finally got his offer letter for the Sales job he is taking with his company. He officially starts March 1. We are so excited. This year is full of new beginnings. W

I never read my I did and I am glad I did:

If you want it, you can have it now. There's just no other way to say it. If you really want it, you won't be shy about letting that fact be known, which means the universe will step in and make the arrangements for you. Basically, all you have to do now is to show up with a wish list. Pretend you're five, you're sitting on Santa's lap, and you've been a very, very good kid. Then look outside. The bike will be waiting outside your door with the bell, the streamers, basket and everything!

I wonder what it is...funny that I have been so bored all day that I was online shopping and made tons of wish lists. Wonder what will arrive on my doorstep???

So I had gestational diabetes with Owen. I found out around 5 months and had to completely change my diet. I went to see a nutritionist and was put on a diet plan. For the most part the diabetes was well maintained with diet control. Until the last week. I was induced because they were going to have to start me on insulin.

At least now I know that I will most likely have it again. I want to really watch what I eat but its so hard as nothing is appealing to me at all. I can not even stomach the thought of any kind of chicken (really the only meat I eat). All I want to eat are bagels, pizza and cereal. Bagels and Pizza are on the no no list. I have to stay away from carbs and eat lots of protein. This is the part of the pregnancy that is not fun because I can not give into my cravings like I want to. I refuse to have an 11 pound baby. I need to exercise and eat right. I am almost 11 weeks. I only have two more to go until I hit my second trimester. Maybe by then I will have more of an appetite and be able to eat more than Special K morning, noon and night!!!!

Overcome with Love and Joy

I just have to say that today I am overcome (almost brought to tears) with love and joy for my family. I am so happy that I am pregnant. I am doing everything I can that is right for this baby.

We were at the doctors yesterday and we had a chance to hear the heartbeat. She could not find it. There is a 50% chance of hearing the heartbeat between weeks 10-12 (I am almost 11). When I go back on 11th of Feb they will try again. For sure they will be able to hear it. I am not worried. We heard it on NYE and saw the Kumquat (thats what size it is). I know that it is still early to hear anything the regular way. The baby just wanted to be left alone. I can respect that.

Owen has been talking to the baby. He always wants me to open my mouth so we can be sure the baby hears him. I do it because it is super cute and pretty funny. Its amazing the way kids think.

Brian has been so supportive. I have not been the easiest person to be around. He is always so calm and patient with me. He helps around the house so much. I have been feeling like crap all the time between morning/all day sickness and headaches. Brian just grins and bears it. He is such a great husband/father.

I know this post is mushy...but I am emotional so what do you expect.

I have been feeling....

Large Breasted
Headachey (from puking)

Hopefully soon this little kumuat will make me feel better. I love it so much already but it is not making me feel very well. Maybe its a girl because I dont remember feeling this way with Owen. I know I was a little nauseated in the evenings with him but nothing like this.

How many more days until spring??

When its cold we want it warm, when its warm we want it cold. I guess we or should I say I am never happy. It seems to me that this year is especially cold. I dont know what it is but I am cold all the time. I cant seem to warm up. Poor Owen always wants to play outside and I just dont get it. When its 25 degrees out I am not really running to bundle up and play outside. I feel bad for the poor kid because he has so much energy and wants to genuinely run it off. Is there someone I can hire to take him outside to play???

Anyway, I would really like spring to hurry up and get here. Its only January 11th and I am ready for April. Then when we are in the dead of Summer and its 95 degrees out I will wish it was cooler out. Is there somewhere I can move where it is 70-80 degrees all year round and never rains??? I want to be there!
