Well Look At That!

Looks like we've got ourselves a baby cookin' in there! I had an ultrasound on Thursday (4/15) just to check for placement, and sure enough, there's something in my uterus! We go on the 23rd for our first OB appointment and to check for a heartbeat.

In other news, I can't get enough chocolate milk. I'm not a milk person at all, I don't even drink it out of my cereal bowl, so for me to crave milk is just weird. I'm still craving pastas and breads, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to gain about 947 pounds in the next 8 months if I keep giving in to cravings. K and I are going to Olive Garden after the ultrasound, and I think I'm more excited about that than the ultrasound, haha! I just want breadsticks and alfredo sauce, I don't even need an entree.

I'm feeling pretty good. Morning sickness has started to slowly settle in, which I knew was inevitable. It's not really that bad yet *knock on wood* but I fully expect it to get worse. I'm hoping that it won't be as bad this time around as it was with both of my own children. I wonder if the baby's genetics makes a difference? Hmmm.... Probably not, ha! I'm also having an issue with sleep. I can't seem to make myself get up in the mornings, and I'm tired the entire day. I feel like a zombie. But then it comes time to go to bed, and I can't fall asleep to save my life! My brain just won't turn off, even though my body is tired. Which results in me being up all night, and not being able to get up in the morning, and the cycle begins again.

Oh, and we're going to visit K & J in May for Little K's birthday! We're staying the whole weekend, and I'm really looking forward to it. I can honestly say I've never been to Tulsa except when passing through on my way to & from Missouri when I lived there years ago. I will get to meet K & J's family and friends, which is very exciting, but I do admit that I'm a little bit nervous. I'm not sure why, but I just am. I guess I just hope that they like me!
