Happy New Year

Matt and I went to our first prenatal appointment yesterday.  We met with a midwife, and we really like her.  She was really nice and very informative.  There was only enough time to go over our medical history and to have blood work done.  I guess it's too early to hear the baby's heartbeat, so we're going back in two weeks.  We can hear the heartbeat at that appointment.  I can't wait, and we're super excited.

I hope that everyone has a happy New Year!!  I can't wait to eat mochi for the New Year! Yum!

Christmas Eve

Well, we're finally in our new house.  We moved in on Monday.  Thanks to Mom and Mike for helping us with the move.  We definitely couldn't have done it without them!

The living room looks clean, but the rest of the house is not so nice.  We'll start organizing stuff and unpacking soon.  I'm on vacation until January 3rd, so there's lot of time to make the house a home.  I think the kitchen will need to be the first room that will be unpacked.  We're doing Christmas dinner at my mom and dad's this Sunday, and I guess I'm supposed to make something.  I'll need all of our kitchen stuff to actually cook, which we haven't done since we moved in.  I'll probably do mashed potatoes. 

Speaking of mashed potatoes, I've realized that I'm really liking potatoes right now.  That might be my pregnancy craving.  I think the potatoes kind of help me feel less nauseous.  I've been pretty much nauseous all day everyday.  I don't want to bore everyone with my complaints of nausea, but that's all I'm feeling right now.  I can't wait until it goes away.  I talked to my mom about it last night, and she said she had morning sickness with me for four months, Melissa for six months and Bryan for all nine months.  She didn't mention Matthew and morning sickness, so maybe she was lucky with him.  I don't know...  I just hope that my morning sickness lasts through the first trimester, and that's it.  I certainly don't like it.

My cousin Elizabeth is at the hospital right now.  She's probably going to have a Christmas Eve baby, which will be really cool.  I can't wait to meet little Joshua.

I hope that everyone has a merry Christmas!

I don't feel up to a new post today. I just threw up again and boy I don't know how I'm gonna hide this belly for much longer.  The nausea is mostly tolerable but I do throw up about twice a day, once in the morning, once at night. Luckily I have Friday off and can't wait to see Mom and Mike on Sunday!!!

Today was a better day. I had heartburn most of the day, but other than that, I felt good. I can't believe the rate at which my belly is growing, though. I haven't told anyone at work except my boss. I noticed a couple of people at work looking at my belly today. I think I'll probably be so big after New Year's that I'll have to tell everyone. We'll see...

Thanks for reading! Thanks for listening seemed kind of funny to type since no one's actually listening...just reading :)

Baby blog

Well, this is my first entry.  I thought that this would be a great way to document our first pregnancy. 

Today, I'm six weeks and five days pregnant.  Wednesday night was the first night that I had heartburn.  Yesterday, I felt nauseous while at Target.  Luckily, I didn't throw up.  I was way too far away from the bathroom to throw up.  I did throw up for the first time last night after eating dinner.  Ew...just thinking about throwing up makes me want to throw up.

I feel like my belly is bigger today.  It seems like it's too early to have a belly, but I definitely have a bigger belly.  It started getting bigger last week.  I noticed that my clothes are much more snug now.  I bought a couple pairs of pants yesterday, since I only have three pairs of pants that fit me now.

I don't eat meat, but I'm going to try to eat meat.  I tried to eat some salmon last night, but it grossed me out too much.  I ate most of it, but I couldn't keep that down.  I bought some organic chicken breasts yesterday and plan to make that for dinner sometime this week.  We'll see how that goes.

This is going to be quite the adventure.  I'm very excited and looking forward to what's ahead.  I can't wait!
