Ultrasound Update

Here are some photos from my ultrasound today.... 13 weeks!

Baby Fig was very active today.... jumping all over the place!!  The ultrasound tech said everything looked great, and that no news is good news, so hopefully we're all finished with that!

While I was there, a research student came in and asked me to participate in a fetal growth study.  The study involves tracking, height, weight, mood and baby's measurements via ultrasounds.  This means that I get 5 extra ultrasounds for FREE!!!  As if that wasn't good enough, they pay you to come in!  So, of course I said yes.  My first appt. is next week.  We'll see how it goes.... now that I'm in the second trimester, I'm hoping some of my energy comes back soon! 

Hope everyone else is well.... I haven't heard from my blogger friends in awhile.... everything okay?

Beach Post!

Sunday, we left for the beach for a couple of days. It was a nice anniversary getaway! We forgot our cake- so we had to compromise with regular dessert after dinner. :( Anyway, Monday was not a very good beach day, so we went to the Ocean City Boardwalk and spent the day there. It was very fun! I felt like a little kid again! On Monday night, we met Eric's parents in Atlantic City for some shopping and dinner. It was nice to see them (we don't get to see them that much during the summer) and get some great back to school shopping done at the outlets (considering NOTHING will fit!)

Tuesday, we spent most of our morning here.....

It was SO relaxing! We had to leave on the earlier side because I had to come back to a meeting and prepare for classwork due on Wednesday, but after napping at the house, I took some pictures of the view before heading home!

View from my parents balcony:
That's the bay right there! We really wanted to kayak, but we just didn't have enough time! So, it'll be the top of our agenda for our next visit, which hopefully isn't too long away!

Busy day today, meeting with financial planner, tutoring, and then an ultrasound to see Little Fig today! I'll be sure to let you know how it goes!

Beach Bound!

We drove to the beach last night after work for our anniversary. We'll be here only until tomorrow, but two nights away in the summer is a lot for a golf pro! So, we went out to dinner at a yummy Italian restaurant. This morning, we're getting ready to go to breakfast at Eric's favorite place, Brian's Waffle House. Tonight, we'll meet up with Eric's parents in Atlantic City to shop at the outlets and then have dinner together. I'm sure Eric will sneak in a little gambling too! Anyway, I hope to get down to the beach to take some nice photos to post later.... I hear that we had a horrible storm without power last night... crazy!

Hope all is well. I'll get my 12 week photo up soon as well!

Belly Pictures... Ugh!

So here are the long awaited belly pics.... I'm waited on posting them because I'm still not a huge fan of the way they look yet.... more like fat and not so much like a baby is in there! A couple more weeks.... Anyway... here's you're 11 week photo from last week!
I am feeling a ton better.... the energy is not 100% yet, but I can eat most anything. I think I'm over the hump! I go next Wednesday for my first trimester ultrasound to make sure there's nothing majorly wrong in there!

I'm finishing up my second week of a 6-credit grad course which has gone really well. I've been able to accomplish a lot of work in Science (the subject which I like the least!) We're almost finished and after work on Sunday, we're going to head to the beach for our anniversary... can you believe it's been a year already? It's time to bust that freezer-burnt cake out!

I'm Back!

I know I promised pictures the next day.... sorry! I had to work a ton last week, because I was gone all weekend to be in a wedding in Connecticut! I'll post about that next! Anyway, here are the ultrasound pictures!

This shows the little one at about 10 weeks... I can't believe you can see the legs already! Everything looked great and the doctor said it should be fine. I went for my first trimester bloodwoork and will go back again in the beginning of August.

I am feeling better, but still sometimes have weird food aversions... it's kinda weird, but it beats being sick.

Will post about the wedding soon!

I'm starting to feel better. The last three days have been a TON better! It's so funny how much I hated feeling like crap, but of course now that I'm feeling good, I'm nervous that something's wrong! We'll see what the Dr. says on Monday when I have my next ultrasound and checkup! I have to work all weekend, which really stinks, but at least it will be helpful when we're buying baby stuff in the near future!

Hope everyone has a great fourth- I will be sure to post pictures when I get home from the Dr. on Monday!
