Bad Blogger

I've been terrible at posting and I really don't have any good excuses. I had a fun food post planned but my camera died in the middle of the cooking process. I was too stubborn to just go get the point and shoot camera out of the closet to continue taking pictures so what's a food post without pictures....BORING!!

On the baby front I really can't believe I only have 10 weeks (give or take) of pregnancy left!!! Holy cow where has time gone!!!!! I have a doctor's appointment this afternoon. I am guessing by the way I've been STARVING last week that I will finally jump ahead of my pre-pregnancy weight and get a positive weight gain on my charts! For those that don't know I lost quite a bit of weight during the first trimester due to morning sickness. Then I went a few months with no weight gain at all. The doctor has not been concerned because everything has been measuring fine. At my last appointment two weeks ago I was nearing my pre-pregnancy weight so I will be surprised if I don't jump over it at my appointment today. We shall see. However, if it's a large number I will blame it on the fact that my appointment was after lunch.....it's only logical right?!? In two more weeks we will have another ultrasound to see if the baby has flipped. As of right now I believe she is still hanging out in a breech position and I know there is plenty of time for her to make her move!

Steven goes to the doctor on Thursday and will HOPEFULLY get off of crutches! Fingers crossed!!! At this point it's no so much the crutches I would just like him to get released to start driving.

I do have a funny pregnancy story......our sweet friends that welcomed their bundle of joy on New Years Eve gave us their doppler to borrow for the remainder of my pregnancy. Well I shouldn't say their as she borrowed it from the clinic she currently works for.....the clinic has asked for it back so we will see how long I get to keep it. The first night we got home we thought we would test it out. Our sweet dog, Carson, was laying next to the bed sleeping away. As soon as he heard the doppler sounds he FREAKED out. He took off running around the house like a mad man and barking like crazy. When he ran back into the bedroom he was trying to get on the bed...due to his short legs he sometimes needs some help. When we got him calmed down and on the bed I found her heart beat again. He slowly walked over, placed his head on my belly and put it right next to where her heart was beating. Sweet little guy. He isn't going to know what hit him in the next few months :). I will say the bigger I've gotten the more attached he's gotten. He has never been a snuggler but that all changed about 2 months ago. For the longest time I thought it was my imagination but Steven started commenting and family and friends started commenting on how funny it was. If he isn't busy playing he is at my feet regardless of what I am doing....if I lay down he lays down touching me, if I sit on the couch he lays on top of my feet, etc.

WOW this was a LONG RANDOM post! I will post some new belly pictures soon!!

  1. So how was the appointment? Hope everything is good. The story about Carson is so cute! He's such a sweet puppy. That would have been a neat thing to see!
    Hope to see you soon!
