Today (7/11/13) we are now 13 weeks pregnant. I met E&M in Savannah on Monday for an in depth U/S to test for multiply things and it was so good to see them. The U/S machine that was used was amazing. The little wee one is only about 3 inches long but the machine was so detailed. We saw the face, hands, spine, hands, nose everything! It was beautiful. We had our transfer dates mixed up so our official due date is actually January 15th again 9what it was before) just to confuse things! So the Ultra sound technician “confirmed” the gender which we already knew from the testing E&M had done with the Embryo’s. Not going to say it now until after we have the gender U/S next month. I’m sure E&M are going to do some cool gender reveal thing. I wish I had thought of doing the gender reveal cake idea with my children! After the U/S E and I went out for lunch (I had a great veggie pita) and then we walked along River Street. It was so much fun walking and talking. We looked inside all the tiny shops and even got fudge at the sweet shop …. although I can’t eat it right now, sweets and chocolate make me so sick 😦 Caleb was happy with the fudge though. E gave me a pregnancy body pillow which I was so happy for (I can’t wait to use it when my belly is bigger) she is so sweet and thoughtful. She also bought our boys little gifts too. Caleb and the boys met us at E7M’s hotel where we left and went for dinner at a fancy little restaurant. I was nervous at first because it wasn’t kid friendly but our boys were very well behaved. The food was really good, especially the appetizers. We shared spicy muscles (I just dipped bread in the sauce) but it was Caleb’s first time eating muscles and he loved them. We also had spicy warm olive (AMAZING). The rest of the evening was wonderful.
Fast forward a week … my morning sickness has been more or less the same except for yesterday and today, it seems to be going (please please please) I hope I’m not jinxing it now. Oh well!
I’ve been obsessing over period drams this past week and enjoyed watching the BBC drama “North & South” what a beautiful love story. Mr. Thornton is slowly replacing Mr. Darcy in my books ….
Here are a couple of belly pictures (I took at work in the bathroom, stylish I know!) I still have to edit the “official” ones we take at home and upload them.
