so i made an appointment and had my first ultrasound done, at just a day shy of 11 weeks. immediately when i turned my head to the screen i felt a wave of relief come over me. seeing that little babe (not even 2 inches long) swimming around like crazy. little arm buds and legs, i actually felt pregnant for the first time. i was prepared for the worst, not seeing anything on that screen, just an empty picture. i couldn't be more thrilled. i walked out of the office with those pictures, and immediately sent one to my husband (who was patiently waiting for the results as well) saying "hi daddy". i can't imagine his reaction. we are so grateful things are still okay with our little one.
other than that, my appetite is getting a little back to normal, still loving the carbs as i always had before. i really need to start getting active again. all this cold weather, is making me want to do nothing but curl up on the couch and watch episodes of Hart of Dixie on Netflix. Hoping to join the YMCA and get into a couple swim aerobic classes, because my normal kettle bell high intensity workouts are probably not the best anymore. sad because i really miss it.
