5 weeks!

I cannot believe how fast time has flown by. We have known about our little chicken for a week and a half already. I am beyond tired, but committed to updating the blog every Sunday so I can look back on the early stages of my pregnancy later on. So without further ado....
How far along? 5 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: still none either way.
Maternity clothes? still rocking the bella band and I picked up some uber comfy maternity lounge pants
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Tons, I am exhausted all the time!
Best moment this week: Telling close friends and a few coworkers
Movement: nope
Food cravings: Baby carrots, celery and ranch dip! pretty much any veggie makes me deliriously happy :o)
Gender: Still thinking boy
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: Having boundless energy. I can't believe that I'm tiring so quickly this early in the pregnancy.
What I am looking forward to: Ultrasound on Friday...I am praying we see a heartbeat and I can relax a little
Weekly Wisdom: Rest when you need it!!! I completely over did at work on Saturday, I should have taken advantage of my excuse to take it easy.
Milestones: Our baby is the size of an apple seed!!

Poppy Seeds

This was such a busy weekend! The Mr. thought taking a hpt would be a good idea, I was unconvinced, seeing as I was only 11 dpo. So I talked him into testing on Friday morning with the FMU. I was out running some errands and came home to an empty house. I couldn't resist the urge to POAS :o) I didn't, maybe I couldn't, look at the results. I was getting ready to leave and I happened to glance down at the test. It was POSITIVE!!!! We are having a baby!!!! Holy shit!!!!! The Mr. is so excited, we have already told everyone :o) I am so excited, and very tired. I will be calling the doc in the morning to get everything set up!

In other news, I graduated this weekend. I still have three weeks of class left but I feel done! My IL's hosted a graduation party complete with tons of food (none of which looked good to me at all :o( ). It was great to get to spend time with everyone.

I am 4 weeks today and I am steeling this next part from Blair's blog because I want to remember as much as possible about this pregnancy.

How far along? 4 weeks!!
Total weight gain/loss: 0
Maternity clothes? nope, but I did get a bella band ( fabulous!!!)
Stretch marks? Not that I didn't already have
Sleep: I am getting tons, I am exhausted.
Best moment this week: Getting our BFP!!
Movement: Not for a while yet.
Food cravings: baby carrots and ranch dip!
Gender: I am thinking boy
Labor Signs: None
Belly Button in or out? In
What I miss: beer and coffee.
What I am looking forward to: seeing the doctor and our little chicken's heart beat.
Weekly Wisdom: Tell everyone your feelings on belly touching early on :0)
Milestones: Four weeks and several BFP's!!!!!!1

Mother's Day

First of all...Happy Mother's Day to all the moms who read this and all the amazing moms in my life. I am so glad this isn't a rough day for me. I have spent the morning snuggling with my furbaby and nesting. Soon I will be off to see my MIL and later my mom. And it is my sister's birthday!
To top off this awesome Sunday, my chart is looking beautiful!

Well...I suck

I am a very bad blogger. I started this blog so I would remember our journey as we try to get pregnant. Now I have missed an entire month! Me = blogging FAIL!

So to catch up. Last cycle was a no go. :o( Although I can say I am not overly surprise. FF effed up my o date and we completely missed our window.

DH just turned 25 and is now an old man :o) His birthday brought in spring here and everything is starting to get green! I love the change of seasons all the tulips are blooming. I get all smiley when I drive down my street, as all the houses have them.

My SIL set up an awesome trip to the mountains with MIL and all 3 of my SIL. It was wonderful! We all got a pedi/mani and headed up to a condo. We drank wine, went to dinner, and watched old flicks. I had a blast.

I am updating from class and should probably start paying attention (another reason I suck). Back to learning!
