~*~*WEEKLY CHIT CHAT*~*~ June 27-July3 - Page 3

post #41 of 47
Had my first prenatal yesterday. Wow, that really made it feel real. Went really well - not that they did anything exciting. Just got a pelvic exam (my uterus is growing "like it should"), talked to the insurance lady (does anyone else's dr/midwife do that? I love that they have someone in house that explains stuff too you!) and had my first u/s scheduled.

Usually my doc doesn't do one until 18 weeks, but I mentioned I was feeling anxious this time around and she said she'd send me next week so I could see the heartbeat. Woo Hoo! You have no idea how happy I am about that. It's scheduled for next Wednesday - when I'll be 8 weeks exactly.

Busy, busy weekend planned. Heading to the beach this morning with my cousin and our little ones, then a wedding rehearsal tonight (I'm singing) then a wedding and a funeral tomorrow. Sunday will be church and then a BBQ. I think I shall plan to sleep all day on Monday!!

OkiMom - Yeah, my house is a cyclone. Like, a health hazard. And I don't even care. So happy your hubby gets to come home early! Business trip?

Debbie - When did you have your bloodwork done? I know that with my 1st pregnancy I didn't even hear the results - I think they really only call you if something is wrong. Maybe you could call the office to check?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Anyone elses's house a complete disaster? I can't seem to get anything accomplished and when I do I turn around for a minute and the girls have destroyed it.
Congrats on hubby coming home, what a relief!

My house is a disaster too and people keep wanting to come over! We haven't told our friends yet so its hard to come up with an excuse for them not to.

I told my boss today, we live in a relatively "small town" and next week we have a big party to go to.. B. will be there and sharing the news and some of those people are people we work with, so we wanted to head it off and make sure we told the boss first before news spread otherwise... DH has to tell his boss and then I guess we'll go ahead and spread the news via facebook. :P

My house is semi-straight but needs to be dusted/vacuumed/bathrooms cleaned. DH has been wonderful about picking up after the kids. I try throughout the day, but they are very good at wrecking the house

I'm having the hardest time changing poopy diapers lately. I've switched to disposables until DD poops (then switch back to cloth) so that I can avoid having to wash out a diaper. Seriously can't handle that right now. I'm so thankful for the 3-day weekend coming up...DH has been so great about everything

I'm doing the exact same thing with my twins. They're very predictable in their bathroom habits and it keeps me from gagging while I scrape poop from the cloth diapers. Normal it doesn't phase me, but this past week I can't handle the smell at all.

In other news, we're telling my parents about the pregnancy tonight. DH and I are taking the twins to the beach for the weekend and inviting my parents to join us. I can't wait to tell them!

Momma_molly, My husband is a Marine. Several times a year hes unit goes to other countries and help trains their military in non-lethal measures. Currently hes in Mongolia, in Feb he was in Thailand, in September hes going to Guam to train some American units. He might have to go to the Phillipines as well. Hes a busy guy but he enjoys it (all but being away from us, he doesn't like leaving me and the girls). Its one of the reasons that Im excited to be moving back to the states, Id rather do a 7-8 month deployment (Marine deployments are shorter than the Armys) than having him show up at home one day "Hey Im leaving for three to six weeks tomorrow, can you help me pack". Short trips are killing the kids right about now since by the time they adjust to him being gone hes back and by the time they adjust to that hes getting ready to leave again.

Im glad its not only my house. I think Im going to use this weekend to clean up the house at least enough where I don't cringe when someone walks by our sliding glass windows and look inside (or maybe I should make curtains.. nah, can't find a curtain rod big enough over here to hang them).
