There's an alien in there!

Last week Prince C and I got to spend a whole hour with our baby. We had our Nuchal Translucency Ultrasound. This is the one during your first trimester where the technician measures the folds on the back of the baby's neck to test for Downs possibility. Anyway, that was perfectly fine and that baby was snoozing for about 45 mins. Baby Amigo would wake up and look directly at the wand and then go back to snoozing. Finally, Amigo flipped over onto it's back and popped it's thumb into it's mouth. SO CUTE!

Here's the Alien:

And, here's proof that it's a thumb sucker:

And here is a picture of my belly at 13w5d (yes, I am in my underwear...ignore that):

The cute boy and I are heading to Atlanta on Tuesday. I hope we have a lovely time, even with it being a super quick trip. We have an ultrasound on Tuesday early afternoon and then we are heading south. More later.

A couple pictures

I thought I ought to post a couple of pictures of my favorite things.

Here are the best things Prince C has ever given just keeps getting better!

Here is my ring! It's a cushion cut people. Cushion!

And here's the bloated belly! I am 12 weeks in this picture...and I am not wearing pants. Get over that fact. Sorry. I am also standing on the end of the bed shooting into a mirror - so it isn't all that beautiful...but that is how it goes!

I have never been happier in my life! We have another ultrasound on Tuesday - I will put up some photos then. Yay!

So, now you know

So, now you know we are pregnant.

C and I are so very thrilled - so if you have any other thoughts than well wishes- get out.

Right now I am currently 12w and 4d along. I am having a really great pregnancy so far. Everyday except yesterday. Yesterday I super nauseous all day and actually ended up getting sick. ew.

Yay for baby Amigo.

So I have had the coolest week!

This week has been so amazing!

See previous post to read the vague details about Wednesday and Thursday.... Then Friday!

Yesterday I worked all day - well sort of all day...I left at about 230p since I had worked an event Thursday night until 730p....Anywho, I went to my house and cleaned a bit then headed home to Kentucky. On the drive I called a few girlfriends and also Prince C's Mama to chat. I was going over with all of them how great my week had been. Laughing, I'm sure, Queen Mama knew exactly what was coming!

When I arrived in Lexington, Prince C and I just met at the movie theatre. The movie started at 740p and I didn't want to be late. We scarfed down dinner (taco bell) in the car and walked to the ticket window. "SOLD OUT". Well, needless to say I am a total whiner and was really upset that the night hadn't worked out as planned. We went home. I was still pouty.

We changed into comfy clothes, started some laundry, and settled in for a night of food network dvr. I was fiddling with my computer and C was doing the same. He has been talking for several weeks about starting his own blog. I have told him over and over that he is welcome to write on mine - but no, he wanted his own. So...he said he was completing his maiden post. Once he finished, he said "ok, it's posted - go read it".

C had been prepping me for this proposal - yes, I said proposal - for a while. Little did I know said blog was for diamond giving. Here's the link. It'll divulge a lot of info....

I had the coolest day yesterday

It involved:

  • kicking
  • punching
  • thumping
  • tears
  • giggles
  • hand squeezes
  • Mexican food

How fun!

Then today I got to eat some of this:

And look at this from 36 stories up:

So irritated.

I cannot even begin to write a happy sappy new post about my love and my delightful life. I am so irritated these days. My job is seriously rubbing me the wrong way, it seems like all I am doing right now is waiting, then I come home from work to be with no one.

I love my dogs, I love my cats, I love my life...but all of it is annoying.

I have watched Meet Joe Black at least 20 times in the last 2 weeks and today I moved to The Family Stone. I will watch it 20 times too.

It's only 921p and it's almost dark. That means it'll be winter before I know it. I am just not a fan of getting up and going to work in the dark and returning from work in the dark. I am not a fan of seasonal depression.

Next week should be a big week. I am taking a day off and I have a doctor's appointment. Maybe she can cure the insufferable irritability and annoyance.

I am supposed to be putting the house on the market on Friday - but I haven't done shit. It feels like a bottomless pit. I need help and I don't have it. I need to move some things to the curb from the garage, but I can't lift heavy stuff.

On a slightly lighter note, I made watermelon lemonade and vegan meatball soup tonight. Both were good. I also worked on my craft room. Maybe tomorrow I can work more on that and feel some sense of accomplishment.

getting ready to sell the house

Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a big ol' house ready to give over to a realtor? Do you have any idea how hard it is to do it with no help? Jeepers, it's tough.

Add in 2 huge dogs, one who is mentally retarded and 3 cats, all of which are super furry and sheddy....Oh my God.

What a delight.
