Is that you?

So, I'm just sitting there and I feel this "flick" in my stomach. It was like a piece of popcorn popping or a flutter. (Well, must be my typical upset stomach.)
I keep going on with my day........ flick flick flick......... Nope, I think it's you! I'm not sure but that random flutter must be my little girl in there. She's just saying "HELLO WORLD HERE I COME!"

Snow Days and Sick Days

Wow, it's sure cold out! Thursday we got a major snowfall and thank goodness I was off work! There's no way I could have driven in that snow. So instead I spent the day outside, by myself, sledding. Typically my husband would have been the first one out the door but he's got a horrible virus that has kept him in bed for about four days. I won't give you details, but he can't eat and is very fatigued. We got him to the Doctor on Friday and started on some anti-nausea pills so now he can at least eat. So.... I ventured out on my own! I went for a walk to Kirkland and had some Starbucks coffee while I sat and watched the snow fall, then I headed to the grocery store to buy Jason some remedies and soup. On my trek back home I only almost bit the snow about three times, whew, close calls. Finally I made it back to the bottom of my hill and a little boy came running up to me. "Miss, can I carry your grocery bags?" What a sweetie! I can only hope my kids have manners like that, I just wanted to hug him!

Our work Christmas party was cancelled, Diana's 30th party cancelled, everything is snowed in. We managed to make it out to the Keg last night for dinner to celebrate with Diana. Poor Jason sat and starred at his food rather than ate it, but it was a blast!

Today, back to my typical Christmas Crafts. Gotta love the snow and sick days! Sometimes it's nice to have an excuse to stay home.

Prego Update

Just a general pregnancy update... I feel fine! Everyone asks me how I feel, I don't think you truly want the honest answer to that so for the most part I feel "fine". I don't have morning sickness, I don't have nausea, I'm the polar opposite. I love to eat. My energy is finally creeping back which is a lifesaver. I literally had a few days where I didn't even want to get up off the couch. For those of you who know me, that's not my typically personality. I'm a Type A personality, go getter, busybody, workaholic, crafter, cooker, wife and friend. I love doing things for others and making people smile but that's been a bit hard lately.

By the end of my ten to eleven hour workday I do my best to go to the gym and take my body sculpt class which brings me to my first stranger appreciation. I was waiting for class when one of the ladies came up to me and said "please don't get mad if I'm totally off, but are you pregnant? (babble babble...) I'm just so used to seeing you and your petite body and it looks like you are pregnant!". Just to throw her off I said no, but then I let her know the truth, made me smile. I guess I'm officially showing now. I know my pants can sure tell I'm showing. Time to shop, very soon.

The last update is they say it's a GIRL! You know, being so early they never truly know but the Ultrasound Tech was pretty darn sure and said to have my girl name ready to go. By the end of the ultrasound she said she was positive, so we'll see! She was a great Tech and I hope to have her each time, she even snuck on a little 3D showing of the little one. She was dancing, moving her arms, bouncing over and over again and even switched sides. What a busy girl! She takes after her mom I guess.

That's it for now!
As always, more to come.

Yes! I'm pregnant. I'm finally in that "second trimester" period where I can open up my mouth and tell everyone. Although, Jason started telling people that he didn't even know immediately. He just was so excited he couldn't keep it in, not suprising! No morning sickness, just the opposite, I like to eat. Eating makes me feel better and not sick so I'm trying to be healthy and eat wisely. My main complaint is my skin. It's red, flushed and looks like I have a rash. Of course working in Dermatology doesn't quite help me any. Every day people ask me "What's wrong with your face? Were you in the sun? Did you have a laser done? Do you have a rash?" Well just so you know, that makes it worse. I flush more when that happens! So, I'm trying to accept it and realize things could be a lot worse. I'll just call it the Pregnancy "GLOW" for now, like Jason does. Good thing my husband is so nice. He likes the glow. I sure hope my little pickle likes it too! Why is my baby called pickle you may ask? Well it all leads back to the dream. Before I found out I was pregnant, I awoke to Jason one morning and he said "I met our child." It was such a strange statement. He had a dream that I was pregnant, I gave birth and was sitting on the living room floor with a little girl with thick hair, bangs and cute lips, she laughed and said "TICKLE!!" and Jason replied, wow, she said Tickle. My response was... NO SHE SAID PICKLE!!! Now it's our little Pickle. I think it's amazing that he had that dream before we even knew. He's amazing.
Gotta love the Pickle and the Glow.
That's all for now.
God Bless.
