I had a BLT for lunch (thanks, mom!) :

Well, I saw/heard the heartbeat today on u/s. This is only the 2nd time out of 7 pregnancies that I've made it to a live 10 week gestation, so we're not out of the woods until I get my CVS results (mid-March). So I'm not ready for congrats or anything, but at least I know why I'm so sick!

I think I want to try a shamrock shake too, mint seems to really help with nausea lately. I got a few Cadbury eggs, too, but I'm afraid to eat it due to chocolate worsening reflux!

I was really hoping to be able to enjoy my egg I got a few days ago,but I don't think I'm read for it yet. I don't like to unwrap them for a little bite here and there then try and wrap them again,it never works well. All my plastic containers are needing a wash so I won't open it until I have a clean one to out it in. I know I won't be able to eat a while egg right now. I just want to take a bite and let it sit in my mouth a while.

Yay! You felt the baby!

I love apple juice. Today though it seems to taste like alcohol for some reason.

I finally got some maternity pants at a resale shop and am SO happy. They are comfy and I can still wear my regular shirts. I technically can wear my regular pants but I feel like comfort wins and I may as well get my money's worth out of them by wearing them now

OMIGOSH!

Weather.com 10 day outlook has every single day hitting above freezing!

And I just saw like 50 birds in my front yard since Im the only one in my neighborhood with grass exposed thanks to all of the kids trampling my snow when they come to wait for the bus... and don't think that's a complaint! I love love LOVE hearing the birds argue over who gets a worm. Its AWESOME to hear after a winter as horrible as this one has been! Usually our snow melts in between snowstorms but this year we almost constantly had snow on the ground. It melted from 3 feet down to 6 inches but never totally disappeared, then we got hit with another ton of snow.

this means the kids and i can start going for our nightly walks again after the first 40 degree day!

Stay safe!

I am just tired, I've been up since 5am due to the warnings. I headed to the gas station at 7am (with all the other thousands of crazy people) cause I thought I only had a 1/4 tank of gas, but I had 1/2 tank. I decided it would waste more gas waiting in line to fill my tank.

Hoping for you guys that this is just them being overly cautious (much better than not being cautious enough... especially after the history Hilo has)

How scary that kind of weather! I have friends in BC who are getting a little worried about it to.

Things are starting to look up for me and I have a feeling that April will be a good month. Yes,I know that March is next but I don't have a super great feeling about March that's why I said April.

My roommate,who I've been having issues with will leave April 1st! I all ready have a another roommate to fill her room,actually she moves in tomorrow and will take the living room for a month. A little tight,but it will be all right. I'm giving her reduced rent in exchange for.....Spanish lessons!!!

I should have a little "extra" money in April to put on some pass due bills and be able to catch up with them and get back on track with the debt.

Stay safe, HI girls!!

Wow...I'll be thinking of you all on the coasts!

Today is baby dd's birthday party. She actually turned one last Wednesday, but dh wasn't supposed to open his eyes then, lol. So, we're just doing a little family thing today. She has always loved bathtime, so I made her a bathtub cake. http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/just...b-cake-686541/ I can't wait to watch her be excited tonight. She has this adorable smile that just lights up when she's happy. And she's almost always happy.

I keep feeling what is probably the baby, but I just keep assuming it isn't. It was funny because I was bothered that I wasn't feeling it, then I realized I just wasn't paying attention. Now I'm feeling things that don't require me to pay attention! And I have a belly. I've been ignoring that, too, but it's there. And it's ALL belly. I already look like I have a soccer ball in there. Nice and compact. But, I've not gained anything to speak of (the same 5 pounds or so keep going up and down), and if anything, the "extras" from my last baby are reorganizing themselves in my belly. That's a good thing, I guess.

The tub cake is super cute! I love it!

I'm still not sure that I'm pregnant. I mean,yes I am but I don't really believe it. I don't think I will until March 12th and I see the doctor and she "confirms" it for me.

I do have a little belly it's pretty cute, but most people would probably think it's just my normal belly fat.

Today I felt the baby (with my hands,no kicks yet ) and it seemed to be more to the right side,last week it seemed more to the left. That's normal right? I also seem smaller then I felt a few days ago or even earlier today. That might be b/c I had to use the bathroom and had bloating. Is that what happens sometimes?

I sometimes feel like a clueless and pregnant 14 year old and I really want some mashed potatoes right now and have none. I may have to settle for some perogies and cranberry sauce.

today was a decent day.

I took extra Zofran and had B-6 plus unisom the past 3 days.

last night I felt good so I gave Dh the go-ahead for a Sea World visit today (1st day of the season, we got 2yr passes gifted to us last yr).

I managed an entire day out with the fam, even at a restaurant with only ONE fit of gagging, ONE bile in the mouth, NO out right vomiting and and andAND!!!!! I ate a meal! an ACTUAL meal! like enough to reasonably nourish a full grown woman of my height adn weight.

this is first for me in over 3 weeks, and is not something that I can normally accomplish before preggo week 28+.

Now we are home, Dh ordered chinese for dinner, and I can't stomach the smell of any of it.
oh well. I had a great afternoon. I can deal with a craptastic evening. thats par for the course.


OH! and we went to target last night and I bought FIVE new pillows. also got to check out some of the newer carseats in person. Glad there are safer choices nowadays below the $200 mark. When I was buying my 1st carseat the only quality choice (imho) was a radian or a britax.
