Ahhhhh, today was one of the best days of my life.
I got up, went to work today.
C-Dub, got up and went to work today! And guess what…….They didn’t even make him pee in a cup!!!!!
He loved his first day, I loved his first day. My hubby is making money!!!
And on the pregnancy front…..my morning sickness symptoms returned in full force today.
God is good.
First off, I want to thank everyone who sent well wishes and positive thoughts my way.
I REALLY appreciate it.
It really was the best birthday of my life. And C-Dub went to the 2nd interview and now, he was the only candidate they called back for a 3rd interview. Wow. This is the job that, if he got it, would put us in a whole new tax bracket.
I. Can’t. Even. Conceive. It.
And speaking of C-Dub, where is my sex drive? I’ve been looking for her, but she still can’t understand the purpose of having sex, if there is no baby to conceive. Will this pass? God I hope so, or I will have one uptight, upset, horny husband. He said he is already tired of Rosie Palmer and her 5 sisters.
But in the biggest news of the last 48 hours…………
I will be eight weeks tomorrow, and morning sickness has decided to come and settle in.
But it’s not morning sickness. It’s all day sickness. ALL day sickness. What the hell is this morning sickness shit? This is a all day event, from the time my eyes open, till I go to sleep at night. I feel horrible. I almost feel at least if I could just hurl, I would feel so much better. But noooooooo, my stomach just swims all day. ALL DAY.
I report all this with a HUGE smile on my face.
Sick isn’t it! But they say that morning sickness means a healthy pregnancy!
Excuse me while I go and drink a ginger ale with my saltines……….
I couldn’t sleep all night.
I tossed and turned, dreaming of how the ultrasound could go, or not go.
But, I popped up this morning when the alarm went off, got dressed and was ready to go by 7am(the appointment wasn’t until 845.)
So, we drive up there, get to the office, fill out some forms, and the wait begins.
We waited to get out of the waiting room.
The first nurse, took my urine, my weight(I refused to look at it, I actually turned around backwards on the scale. Why stress myself out more?)
So anyway, then, we waited in the ultrasound wait room after it was determined that I was over 7 weeks, and therefore worthy of a ultrasound.
We waited then for about 15 minutes, then we got called in.
I got undressed from the waist down, got on the table, and scooted down to the edge, ready for the dildo cam.
By this time, my heart is beating out of my chest.
So, in goes the dildo cam and……..
IMMEDIATELY, WE SAW OUR PEANUT!!!!!
I mean really, he or she looks like a peanut. And as I has my eyes glued on it, I could see the little flicker of the heart even before she said, “want to hear the heartbeat?”
The sound that then filled the room was the most beautiful sound I have ever heard! 144 beats per minute. Oh, it was so wonderful. I feel sooooo much better.
I am trying to upload the photo, but I haven’t gotten to the scanner yet, but I will!
My baby is there! I think the ultrasound tech thought I was crazy the way I was crying and carrying on.
But C-Dub understood. The whole time, he just kept saying, it’s alright. It’s alright.
And yes it is!!!
The Peanut measured exactly 7 weeks 4 days, so they made my official due date November 27th.
It’s ironic that it’s the day after Thanksgiving. Last year, the day before Thanksgiving, we found out we had the lost our first baby. It’s like God is trying to replace a bad memory with a good one. I feel so blessed.
This has been the best birthday ever!
But, wait……..C-Dub got a job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s only part time now, but it has the potential for full time in a few months.
I am sooo excited! And he has another interview tomorrow for a full time one! He doesn’t know if he wants to go, but I said, GO! The new job doesn’t start until Monday!
Like my momma always said, God will pour you out a blessing that you won’t have room to receive.
God has been so good to me today. I feel so blessed!!!!!!
OK. Tomorrow is it.
THE BIG DAY.
As you all know, tomorrow is my birthday, and my first OB ultrasound.
Tomorrow is the shit or get off the pot day,
the make or break me day.
I couldn’t sleep last night.
I wonder how it will be tonight.
OH MY GOD!!!! I am FREAKING OUT!!!!!!!
I am SOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!! I am SOOOOOOO SCARED!
C-Dub is going with me for moral support of course. It looked like he might not at first because of his 3RD interview with a possible place of employment. But, he switched it to a later time. We will just have to go in separate cars so he can go directly there, and I can drive myself home.
At least, that’s the plan.
My heart is beating crazily in my chest.
One more day, less than 24 hours.
15 hours and 32 minutes to be exact.
Today I am pregnant, I am pregnant today. I WILL be pregnant tomorrow. I WILL see the heartbeat of my little baby. I WILL have a wonderful birthday. I WILL have a healthy and happy 9 months.
Pray for me everybody. Or if you don’t do that, at least keep your fingers crossed.
