9wks 2days

Today I got to see my lil one!!! The doctor measured me at 9wks 2 days and said she would leave the due date at March 30, 2010. The baby's heartbeat was 179 and looked GREAT. We were able to see the lil hands and feet. The best part about the vist was tee's face and watching him talk to our lil one!! I think I fell in love with him all over again!

Feeling LAZY!

I got up this morning and did not want to go to work...but I did anyway. Then when I got there seemed like everything made me mad and I wasn't feeling the best. So I told my boss I was going home to take a nap at lunch, but I never returned to work ;) DONT WORRY I called and told them I wasn't coming back.

I layed on the sofa and slept all afternoon and enjoyed every minute of it! Now, I just finished dinner and dont really feel like putting away this laundry :( ready to go back to sleep!

Oh well, good thing I have an AMAZING hubby who cleaned the WHOLE house and did the laundry so I can be lazy and sleep all I want tonight!!!

Tomorrow is FRIDAY YEEE HAAWWW!!!! I couldnt be more excited for friday than I am this week!! Then shower on looking forward to that as well!!

First Pic!

Ok, first pic of baby! I am not "feeling" like pics these days. I have gained 4 pounds, I know that's not a LOT but I look like I have gained MUCH more. My belly is getting bigger, to me, but it only looks like FLUB!!! So I will post belly pics when the belly looks a little better...

But on a good note here is the first pic of my lil one!! So cute huh?!!? I think so ;)

Turn 'em into a pickle!?!?

I have been feeling great until about noon everyday then the "morning sickness" sets in. The only thing I have found that makes me feel better is PICKLES! I ate pickles and drank the juice ALL day!! I am getting worried that I may turn my lil one into a pickle...

It is VERY early in the making but I may be able to apply for a promotion and I am pretty excited about it. It will be with a different agency and will be slightly different work so that makes me excited. I am the type of person that loves a challenge, I dont like to be bored and I think this may be a good thing for me. I am not LOOKING for another job but I got a phone call from a fellow friend asking me to consider the position because they thought I would be GREAT at it. Always makes you feel good when people want you! So I said what the heck I'll apply this may be God's way of opening a door for me so we shall see how it goes!

A new blessing!

So a few weeks ago my hubby and I found out that we were preggo!!! We are so excited I can not even begin to explain it. We thought for so long that maybe we were not meant to be parents but then, like they say, when you least expect it it happens! I have an ultrasound pic to post but will have to do it on another entry because I am too lazy right now to upload it.

So far I have felt HUGE and had slight morning sickness, even though mine seems to happen AFTER lunch! I am approximately 7 weeks (tomorrow) according to the nurse on friday. We thought that I was about a week ahead, but the nurse measured the baby and that is what she got! I think she knows what she is doing so I will go with that!

I have noticed myself saying things that I dont mean, or I meant them to sound different. I REALLY hurt tee's feelings last night and couldn't understand why it hurt his feelings. Then I told my mom about it and she slapped me! She told me that was so rude and she understood why he was upset. I apologized to him MILLIONS of times, but I know it still hurt him. GOSH if I have about 7 months lefts of that I dont know wHAT I am gonna do! I also find myself commenting when people are talking and have had to stop myself from saying how I feel about something that probably should be kept to myself!! GEEEZZZZ my mouth is gonna get me in trouble!! :/

Nothing else really to post at this point! I did get to read my baby book yesterday at mom's and it gave me an idea to do a baby diary for my lil one (thats what I am calling him/her for now) to read when they get older. Also I think it will be neat to sit back and read through what I felt and was going through after all is said and done! So I started the diary tonight and it was a fairly long entry this time but I had to get my lil one up to date! Oh I also want to include the food that I ate for that day...wont that be funny to keep track of! So my plan is to write in my diary (or to my lil one) every evening and I will try to post on here as well to keep you all up to date the Dawkins journey to parenthood!

Just as an FYI, we are telling people about the pregnancy but I dont think we are ready to "advertise" it on FB so for now I think I will just blog about our lil one since I have this thing set as private anyway!!! I hope you all dont get bored with my prego entries, I will try to not write TOTALLY about the pregnancy!!

But in closing, Tee and I are so happy we just can not believe it and are constantly praying "happy and healthy" that's are main concern for our lil one!

jury duty :(

Today I had jury duty. When I say boring I mean this is the most boring thing I have gone through in a long time. They have called 2 groups so far & I am still sitting here. I have already read the book I brought and there is only like 10 people left in the room so not much ppl watching going on. Trying to keep myself awake. I would like to be chosen ezpecially after sitting here all day but there is 1 of the cases I don't want. We shall see how it goes!
