8 Weeks

Uneventful is good.

This week I get to skip the doctor's office. All of my hormone levels and ultra sounds have been superb, so I get a break this week... at least from the doctor's office.

The due date for our little gummy bear is April 20, 2014, which just happens to be Easter. Baby shall from now on be referred to as, "Bunny."

I'm sure Bunny is growing like a champ in that baby tank. Am I starting to "show," you ask? NO! I'm a healthy woman... you'll have to wait a while for any noticeable bump to form.

Food aversions have mellowed as well as some of my nauseous tendencies. I seem to get really hungry, and then hardly eat any of my lunch. Considering I could be "losing my lunch," my appetite is hardly anything to complain about. Justin is already becoming worried about sympathy weight...

I set up my appointment with my own OBGYN (HIGHLY recommended by my new-mom neighbor). It's still a couple of weeks away, but I will consult with her before finishing my monitoring appointments. Jason and Michael are waiting on pins and needles for an ultrasound date, so they can make travel arrangements. Needless to say, that will be the first question I ask.


  1. Uneventful IS good. My due date is 4 days BEFORE you. Yay! I have been dealing with tiredness and ALLERGIES are kicking my butt. I am all hopeful about getting things done around the house and barely do the minimum! After taking my youngest to pre-K this afternoon, it is Benadryl and a nap for this lady!

    1. SOoooo jealous of the nap you will be enjoying this afternoon!
      I've been going to bed with my son between 8:30 and 9 p.m. so I sympathize with the fatigue and I don't think I even get around to the minimum. I know when Justin starts doing the dishes and laundry, he's had enough. I, of course, don't mind one bit ;)

  2. How awesome!!!!!! Easter is a great day to be due. My brother was born on Easter. If our transfer works out this time we'll be due the day before Father's Day. Darn! A day off. :)

  3. Yup, this lady hits the hay around 8;15-9pm herself.
