As I’m sure you can all gather, I haven’t posted much this past month because everything has been a bit hectic. With all of the sickness and the exhaustion, I haven’t really felt like typing some huge post about sleeping too much and eating a lot of very small meals so I don’t turn into Linda Blair from The Exorcist.
Anywho, over the past week or two, I’ve begun to feel a lot better, although I’m sore and tired most of the time. Today was the first time I went to actually see my OB/GYN. So far I’ve only been going to the local Health Department. It was a WONDERFUL doctor’s visit.
I was told they just wanted to go over everything, et cetera, but when Jarrett and I got there, they told us that they actually wanted to do our first ultrasound! Our first reaction was, “Oh, crap… Our moms aren’t here!” However, I quite enjoyed the idea that Jarrett and I got to see our “Little Bit” for the first time by ourselves. 🙂 It just seems so sweet that way.
Here’s the picture!
I apologize for the size, but you can’t really see anything otherwise. It’s sort of a funny picture. Our Baby Bear was pretty much balancing on its head! The little wing-looking things at the top of the picture are its feet. It had its ankles crossed and its arms behind its head, like it was just… Chillin’ upside-down! Hahaha, leave it to our kiddo to be a tiny weirdo even in utero. (That was quite a few words ending in O…)
The doctor also said that it’s actually a little bigger than it should be for 14 weeks, so he’s thinking I might actually be 16 weeks along instead. At my next appointment, they’ll be able to tell me for sure and give me a much more accurate due date.
It’s been one crazy month, for sure. We’ve tried to refrain from buying much of anything until we find out the gender. So far, all we’ve got so far is an adorable, whale-shaped bathtub, a set of receiving blankets covered in foxes (<3!), and my mom bought our first onesie! It says “Guns N Roses, Sweet Child O’ Mine”, which has HUGE meaning for she and I. I’m in love!
On a more “about me” note, I’ve had two interviews for a very small part time job at a popular clothing store here in my hometown. It’ll end up being my “second job” since it’ll only be able 10 hours a week for the most part. I’m still in the hiring process of hiring at the “closer to full time” job. I’ll probably work 45 hours a week. Go me!
Thank you so much for reading all of this! I’ll try to start doing a better job of keeping the blog updated.
