Long Overdue Update!!!

11 Weeks and Counting!!!
Okay so I know I've been horrible at this blogging thing-- but honestly, I have been sleeping just about every spare minute I have had. No kidding. I get about 9+ hours of sleep every night-- and that usually doesn't include me falling asleep on the couch around 8pm where I am in something slightly less than a coma until about 10pm when my sweet husband tries to wake me up with nothing short of an airhorn and then drag my comatose dead-weight self upstairs. (If you think I'm exaggerating, just ask him. :) Not to mention that when I'm not sleeping, I'm desperately trying to keep my last meal in my stomach (where it belongs.) So suffice it to say, I've been avoiding you blogging world. There, I said it. Not because I don't love all of you. But I just did NOT want to be a complaining pregnant woman belly-aching about all of my very normal and healthy symptoms. However, I am now 11 weeks and almost to that 2nd Trimester, where as far as I have heard, life is grand and we all get a little energy back. Oh, and I have also heard that in the land of 2nd Trimester: people like food. And food likes people. (gasp!) I'm looking forward to my trip to this magical land with great anticipation. In the mean time, I am trying desperately to do what I can to not be a crazy person because in spite of all of these symptoms, I LOVE BEING PREGNANT!!!! I love reading every week about how big our baby is. I love thinking of names. I love imagining her (oh alright, or his.) personality! This is the most amazing and crazy time and we are sincerely so blessed and happy.


Here we are after our 6 week ultrasound after seeing "Baby Stuck's" heartbeat!!! 164 BPM!!!! Woohoo!!!!


And here is our little perfect wonder. Sleeping all Curled up.. Just like mommy.
** More to come later this evening hopefully...
I would love to share my crazy pregnancy-isms with you!!!

I guess I can live with the post being "long overdue," but you might have a hard time if the baby is "long overdue!" Yay for (almost) 2nd trimester!

Hope your 2nd trimester goes better than the 1st. :o) People told me all the same things...
Enjoy pregnancy, part of me misses it! But I just love holding my baby. That's the best part! :o)
