flipper baby

ive been pretty lucky i have only had a woozy stomach a couple of times and knock on wood i have not thrown up yet. my mine complaint right now is how tired i am. i wake up tired, i go to work tired and go to bed exausted. i guess making a human being is a lot of work for your body. i can definatly start feeling the changes in my stomach and body getting ready for this little one to make a home in there for nine months.

a week ago i went and got about 8 viles of blood taken and i had my doctors appointment today. looks like i am in very good health, all my organs are working great and there were no abnormalities. thank god.

so from what ive read, my little baby has a tiny hole where its mouth will be, the umbilical cord is developing and it has stumpy arms that resemble flippers. it has tiny beady eyes on either side of its head and its about the size of a tic tac.

i cannot wait to see the first ultrasound.

It Finally Happened

Monday November 8th:
I was feeling a bit weird and i was definatly late so on Monday morning the first thing i did was take a test. the results were quick and obvious. POSITIVE. i went into the bedroom and told dan about the amazing news and i quickly got ready to go get some blood taken.
unfortunately i had to work twelve hours monday and tuesday and i was bursting at the seams to tell someone about and eventually i did. im pretty sure it was written all over my face.
so on Wednesday we made our way to Carleton Place and we told my mom and dad, they already had an idea but they were still so happy for us.
thursday i got the results back to say that yes indeed i was pregnant. i guess i just needed someone in the professional feild to tell me i was so it felt a bit more real.
Friday we told Dans mom and dad and of course they were exstatic as well.
i have some nauseau and cramping and im starting to get really tired really fast but i cannot wait to start showing and then eventually meeting this little creature.
right now its about the size of a grain of rice.
