13 weeks along

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.

8 Weeks along and behind :)

6/5/13 Hi everyone … so the last 2 weeks have been crazy busy with Dr’s appointments, morning sickness and a new puppy (what were we thinking?). I went for a follow up appointment with my Dr last week and everything looked good, even got to hear the heart beat which I managed to video record for E&M so they could hear it! I love hearing the heart beat, it makes it seem so real! Morning sickness is kicking my butt though! Yesterday I caved and got my Dr to prescribe Zofran for me (to help suppress the nauseous) it’s sort of been helping ha ha. So according to my Dr and from when the transfer was (and the age of the embryo at the time) we are exactly 7 weeks 2 days pregnant. So about 4 or 5 days off from what we originally thought. E&M came down for today’s appointment which was great. They got to see their little baby U/S and hear the heartbeat! They then took me out for lunch which was so sweet of them. They kept apologizing for me feeling sick 🙂 it just comes with the territory!

6/11/13 Instead of writing a separate post I thought I would just add on to this one. I am now 8 weeks pregnant and this little raspberry is doing numbers on my poor stomach! I threw up at work for the first time today, luckily no one heard me (I hope) if they did I feel so sorry for them. I am not the quietest of people when I throw up, it’s loud, disgusting and really gross! But I guess it helps me work out what this little bean doesn’t like, this morning? A smoothie from Publix! Things at home are crazy with Sam (the puppy) and Caleb tiling our living room. It should be done by this weekend which will give us our space back. We also have to go shopping for a new dishwasher this weekend (cannot wait!) doing the dishes every night is very tedious! Father’s day is coming up this weekend. I have a few things up my sleeve but am going to head over to Pinterest to see if they have any other cute ideas. I have belly and a U/S picture that I’ll post tonight!Elle xx
