this weekend seems to have been a turning point for me.

i am starting to feel really excited about this pregnancy, as opposed to the anxious, cautious hopefulness i felt before.

i can't wait to tell people! i can't wait to register and build cribs and sew curtains and decorate and get a big belly.

next wednesday is our first meeting with the MFM (maternal fetal medicine specialist) and we will get another u/s, so we have decided if all goes well with that we will spread the news. i will be 12w3d. (even though i've lost 13 pounds, my belly is totally popping and i will not be able to hide it much longer anyways)

i am finally hungry, although still very picky about what i eat. all i seem to want is hamburgers, peanut butter and jelly and honey nut cheerios. i'm trying to sneak in as many fruits and veggies as i can to balance that all out, although my doctor did give me free reign to "eat to my cravings." i am still totally exhausted. it may be related to the never ending cold i've had for over 2 weeks that turned into a sinus infection, but i think it is also pregnancy related. i am so lazy and i'm driving myself crazy because i have a lot of things i need to be doing and just can't seem to make them happen. i'm hoping what they say is true and that as i enter my second trimester (!!) in just a few short weeks i will regain my energy. i've got a lot to do before i get all big and uncomfortable!

Dude, I hope you are right about the second trimester because at 8 weeks, the first trimester is kicking my ass. Glad that everything is going well with you and the bebes.

That is so funny. I eat Honey Nut Cheerios every morning for breakfast too! Can't wait to hear all about your MFM appt. Mine is on March 3rd but I dont get an u/s til March 12th.

YAY for being excited, I'm so happy for you!

I lived on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with Zilla. It was one of the few things I actually wanted AND could have. I craved margaritas too ;o) Couldn't have
