Connor is very excited!!! He was clearly talking and bouncing during this picture, but I think it's fun that he's in it. I hit the 8 week mark yesterday and this past Thursday had my 7 week appointment with Dr. Gelman. It's nice to be able to go in weekly to make sure everything is progressing as it should, and I love hearing their comments about how "picture perfect" each sonogram looks. They always have such nice things to say, and it makes me feel better to know that some of it looks even better than textbook sonograms. Plus it's pretty wonderful to have a sonogram picture of baby ice skating every week. They even switched the machine over to monitor the baby's heart rate and Grandma Glenda, Connor, and I all got to see that it's beating away. Very cool to say the least.
I have one more appointment with the specialist this Friday, and then my regular Obgyn will take over. So far I've had very little nausea, which was how it was with Connor. A few smells here and there have turned my stomach, typically dinner cooking which I find interesting because I'm hungry ALL THE TIME. It seems that every few hours my tummy is grumbling again and I have to eat everything in sight. I mean everything. My size two pants are starting to get tight and I think I'm just going to give in and live in the 4 world for a while. I know everything is going to progress much faster this time around so I'm going to take it day by day. Try my best not to eat every candy bar, bag of chips, and nutty bars I can get my hands on and love every minute. I am so glad I no longer have the stress of Into the Woods anymore!!!!!
