I have so VERY much to be grateful for today!
We went to the doctor yesterday and have a healthy growing baby who's measurements are "just right" and it also has some adorable hands and feet if I do say so myself...and because that's really the only thing he/she would cooperate showing us yesterday on the ultra sound!
Our house went under contract in just 2 weeks and if everything goes smoothly we should be in our new house before Christmas!! We have amazing friends and family who offer us constant love and support and I have the most wondeful husband in the world who I know I don't thank enough for all he does for me!! And while I'm missing my family back in New Jersey today, I'm grateful for the loving family I have here in NC to share the day with!
I hope everybody has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
(I'm also very thankful that I just heard Newsies is coming to Broadway!!! Oh happy day)
Stats of the Week
Size of baby: Well at the Dr. yesterday is was measuring about 9oz or a 1/2 lb! A visual would be an heirloom tomato!
What I miss: Sleeping through the night without having to get up to use the bathroom
Best Moment this week: Obviously going to the Dr. and getting to see our little nugget on the ultra sound and learn that everything is looking just fine!
What baby likes AKA cravings: I've been craving a big ol cheeseburger this week, like one from Five Guys. I'm going to assume this because I found out I was iron deficient at the dr. yesterday. boo.
Movement: I am definitely feeling some movement! It's just every once in awhile and I have to be sitting quietly, but it feels like little bubbles in my stomach. It's very strange and wonderful all at the same time!
Sleep: I'm losing the ability to sleep on my stomach which was always my standard position, so sleep is different.
Size of mommy: growing. I've put on weight, which is good...but uncomfortable. I better get used to it though b/c I've got a lot more growing to do!!
Looking Forward to: Spending the morning drinking bloody mary's (virgin for me) with the hubs watching the Macy's parade and then eating some Turkey tonight with family.
Picture: Finally starting to look like a real baby bump!
