Our Little Odasso

I had my first prenatal appointment today.
Brad came along with me and we were able to see our little swimmer!
Because i'm already 11 weeks, an... invasive... ultrasound wasn't necessary, so they just squirted some gel on my belly and we looked away!
The little fetus seems to move around quite a bit and her/his little fingers are so cute!
Everything is looking good and healthy, so that alleviated a lot of my stress I think.
I'm such a hypochondriac you know.
Anyway, they didn't do an exam (draw blood, pap smear, all that jazz), so that will be in 4 weeks.
Here's a picture!
You can see it's fingers and big ole head!
I've got a video of it too, but i'm not sure how to upload it, so that might come in a later blog.
The due date is June 9th, so mark you calendars!
I was thinking that maybe we could have the blessing around the 4th of July, so that way people will have time off work if they want to come!

Sick Days (from Blogging)

I've been such a random and sparse blogger lately.
I can never find the motivation it seems!
I was going to wait to blog until after my first baby appointment, but that's not even until tomorrow, so i'll just update a bit on how everything has been.
Then, tomorrow, I can blog about my fetus and post a picture and whatnot.

So, pregnancy is worse than I imagined!
Although, I always thought I would throw up 2-3 times a day, but I only throw up 2-3 times a week, so that part is better than I thought.
It's the feeling awful all the time that is making me miserable.
My back is constantly hurting, if pants are even a little bit tight I can't stand it, I feel tired ALL THE TIME no matter how much sleep I get, and I am hungry constantly.
At first, I only needed too eat every 2 hours, which wasn't too bad and a thing of yogurt or a few crackers usually filled me up.
Now, I feel like I need to eat every hour, if not every 40 minutes, and little snacks no longer suffice!
I haven't gained more weight than I should have though, so I guess I'm not eating too much or anything.
It just seems like I'm eating every single thing in our apartment!

Apart from all of this though, I try to put a smile on and keep my attitude up as much as possible.
Of course, i've had my days where I just sit on the couch and watch movies and mope all day, but it hasn't been too often.
Work has been a lot more stressful lately, with me feeling sick and having to chase after and entertain 2 kids all day.
I've got all next week off though, so it will be a MUCH needed break.
Brad and I are going down to California with my brother and i'm really excited to spend some time not only with my family, but in the warmth of the desert!
Plus my sister is coming down with her family, so I'll get to spend some more time with little Peyton!

Well, tomorrows blog will be much better and more interesting.
I promise.
