New Pictures

Here are the latest pictures of our baby. Baby is now measuring 7 weeks 5 days which puts us right in an October 5 through October 8th due date. We saw the heartbeat again AND got to hear it!!! The heartbeat is currently 164 bpm. It was awesome to hear that. When you think that your little one is somewhere between the size of a blueberry and a grape and you heart something as tiny as the heartbeat, it is amazing. If we go off the "old wives' tale" of fetal heartbeats, this baby would register as a girl. Joe is still hoping for a boy, and I just want a healthy baby. We still have about 3 more months to go before we learn the sex of the baby. (I don't think Joe can wait that long!)

Our doctor also have us a 4-D image of our baby.

If we were to somehow insert a camera in to see, this is what the baby would look like.

So, as you can see, we are moving right along.

Next week, our baby should look like this:

The doctor says we are progressing nicely and that I am to see her again in two weeks.

Pregnancy should be an oxymoron

So here are some interesting things regarding pregnancy.

First: The Medication I am on CLEARLY states on the bottle - DO NOT TAKE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT. Um.... the whole reason I am taking this is BECAUSE I am pregnant!!

Second: Prenatal Vitamins state to take with a full meal or full glass of water. So basically, I threw up my meal, now you want me to eat another one? Or am I to drink a whole glass of water which will either make me sick or have me up going to the bathroom for the rest of the night?

Third: Thinking of food makes you sick, looking at food makes you sick, smelling food makes you sick: yet you have to eat in order to not be sick.

Luckily I have only thrown up three times. Twice was meals including Shrimp - so I think I have to stay away form that one, and the third was my anti-nausea medicine (go figure that one).

I felt horrible Sunday night (b/c of what happened - not how I was feeling) as we went to 82 Queen after Mass to celebrate some dear friends of ours' 35th Wedding Anniversary. They hosted a party at 82 Queen, and it was wonderful. No sooner than I got to my car at the Cathedral, did I throw up my entire meal. Lovely. Didn't even make it to the grass. Luckily, We found a hose and Joe was able to hose it down to be respectful of others.

Today I should be 7 weeks 2 days. So Sunday passed the longest time I have been pregnant. I have an appointment tomorrow, so there should be another picture coming soon of the little one if all goes well.

Can I say that I am tired of being pregnant?

Our Little Valentine

Early this month, I got a suprise. And on Wednesday, Joe and I went to the doctor and got our first glimpse of our little surprise.

Yes, I am pregnant again. On Wednesday, I was 6weeks and 3 days pregnant. Our little one is about the size of a pea and already has it's heartbeat. My EDD is October 7th, so this will be a great little Second Anniversary present. My doctor has me on some medication, progesterone, to hopefully prevent a miscarriage by bumping up my progesterone levels, but there is never anything that will truly prevent a miscarriage.

We thought we would share the first pictures of our little one with you. (it is the grey bean inside the black pear looking shape)

Tainted Peanut Butter

Like many Americans this morning, I woke up to discover my peanut butter was being recalled. I get up every morning and have my breakfast while watching the morning news (definetly need those traffic and weather reports), so while I'm munching away on my Peanut Butter Capt Crucnh with Soy Milk, I learn that ConAgra is recalling all Peter Pan and Great Value brands of peanut butter that begin with product code 2111.

See Link

Being the good little wife that I am, I get up and check our peanut butter. Sure enough it has 2111 on the label. My husband followed and looked longley at the pb and says " and we've already used it. Hate to make it go to waste."

So go home and check your labels and it just might save you from Salmonella.
