All I do these days is eat, work, and sleep. There hasn't been much drive in me to be creative. My energy is tied almost completely with getting food in me constantly! And if you know me, you know I hate thinking about food. It's completely exhausting to me. I would love to just get hooked up to a machine that pumps me with the food/nutrients that I need to survive and never have to think about food again. Okay, I'm done complaining. Now for the good parts of life. I am currently 9 weeks and 4 days along in my pregnancy, which makes my due date... AUGUST 14th! Not bad, but I'm definitely looking forward to the 14 + days (they say you're past the nausea then). I'm sure once I get there I'll be looking forward to something else, but who knows. I really can't complain though. I had 2 really bad weeks followed by 1 pretty great week followed by the current week that isn't shaping up to be so wonderful. "How did you get a pretty great week in there" you say. Well, the only thing I can come up with is that I did acupuncture that week. Yes, needles in the skin.I think I'm a believer. After I started to feel 'not so good' again this week I quickly called and made another appointment. We'll see if it's the key to turning things around again. If so, I'm setting up weekly appointments from now until my 2nd trimester. Some other fun news....Dan and I are going to Hawaii in less than 2 weeks! On Saturday night I wasn't feeling too awesome and was getting really down about the rain and being home bound. I told Dan that we needed to plan a trip somewhere to get away from the cold wet weather. Well, we started searching around and realized that Dan's parents and sister, husband, and baby were going to be in Maui at the end of the month and they had room for us in their condo if we could get there. With frequent flyer's we were able to get one of us there for free and found a good enough deal on the other ticket. So we rearranged our work schedules and booked the flights. Gotta love those spontaneous trips that fall right into place. It's times like these that I feel the Lord is spoiling me. Dan and I are calling it our BABYMOON. Apparently Webster Dictionary has added that term to their repertoire this year. "Babymoon: (noun) : a short vacation for a couple before the birth of their child". We may have a few smaller babymoons fit in there before this kid comes into our world (we like to get away), but this is a pretty good start.
Now that we have proof I guess we can just come out and say it. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A BABY! We had our first ultrasound yesterday and it was really fun! It definitely feels more real now. We were excited to get a little clip of our baby twitchin' around. So adorable. Enjoy!
