Random trivia info:  they filmed a lot of scenes from Flight in our neighborhood.  So the scene where Denzel comes out of the house to a bunch of photographers (you see it in the previews), was shot at one of our neighbor's houses.   A bunch of neighbors went to a screening on Friday night and reported on FB that they were cheering during all of our neighborhood scenes, which was kind of confusing to the other movie patrons.  Pretty funny.  orngbiggrin.gif

How fun!  It makes me a bit sad that we don't know our neighbors.  I guess it's partly our fault that we're not out front much (people come around the corner pretty fast and a 2 and 4 year old around that makes me nervous) but it's also not as though anyone came and said hi to us when we moved in either.  How about everyone else?  Are you friends with your neighbors?

 

BaileyB, Your daughter looks so cute!  Tell her I love her sparkly shoes!

 

Scary Biscuits, HOw fun that you got to hear the heartbeat!  I kind of have my hopes up for twins too but I'm pretty sure it's just one.  (there was just one visible at 7 weeks but the doc said sometimes one can hide behind the other so in my mind there is still a chance.  Probably not though.)

I loved the story about the neighbors at the movie, too. I'm on hello-over-the-fence terms with our next door neighbors - we're only in this apartment for 4 months total (6 more weeks) so I haven't really gotten to know them. I *wish* I had their phone number - pretty sure they accidentally left their dog outside all day today, and it was snowing! Poor thing - she did have a small, mostly-covered space to lie, but I felt really bad. I couldn't think of what to do about it though ... they weren't home obviously. Anyway.

 

I got to hear the heartbeat too! I didn't know my midwife was going to do it at this appointment, and DH is out of town, so he couldn't come, which was really sad, especially since it's our first. Still, though ... it was so amazing. It made me cry, like, instantly, which I found really funny, and I started laughing, which made her lose the heartbeat! But she found it again for another few seconds so I could hear.

 

I know people talk about that moment as something so incredibly special, but I could not have imagined it until it was me, listening to another heart beating inside my own body. I still haven't been able to put my finger on just what it was that was so affecting.

aww im jealous ive seen the heart beat but havent heard it (altho i swear if i feel on my tummy ii can feel a pulse much faster then my own)

This week has been generally awful.. ive been sick every day, and neck has turned to rock most of the time.. im feeling better if i have almost constant massages lol.. and use heat on m y neck, but unless i find myself a masseuse to go out with pretty quick its not gonna be very viable.. :P however im keeping my fingers crossed (as i have everyday this week) that tommorrow i will wake up migraine freee.. i cant remember what its like to just be able to open the crtains and go outside..  And whats annoying is i keep missing things id arranged to do.. and i dont want to miss out on doing stuff now as i mite really start to struggle when i get bigger.. and itd be nice to just be able to be abit more normal.. (i thought second trimester was supposed to be better lol!)

Anyway nothing much to report from this week other then missed partys and so on.. ex has gone fairly quiet, but purposed fully wrote a status on fb that i could see (i deleted him as a friend.. and his fb is private but he purposefully made this update public..) Friend came round last night but i just fell asleep and ended up clutching my head and being carried to bed.. arg.. lucky i have good friends really!!

Oh and lastly feeling really fat .. struggling massively with my body image.. cant get it to go away..

(sorry to not replyin directly  to anyones messages i will catch up when my heads mended.. and apologies for my rant!)

So I can't quote your reply, but in brief I would check into the Nikon D5200.  It just came out, I have not checked in detail about specs but the predecessor (5100) seemed like it went over well and this model they upped the megapixels to a whooping 24.1 (I'm jealous, mine is only 12.3 and that was top of the line at the time)!  And the cost is reasonable, body only is $600 so that gives you some wiggle room for a lens if you don't (and I wouldn't) buy a package.  Now you just have to decide on a lens and that will depend on the type of photography you like to shoot.

 

I grew up on a Pentax K1000....my oh my, it was such a great basic camera.  If I could sneak it out of my parents house, I would, tee-hee!

 

BaileyB and Quinalla, those costumes are adorable!

 

OK, gotta run, DD is giving us hell tonight about the homework mischievous.gif

Fatigue is getting better, but man I wear out easily from stuff. DH and I lifted our couch to move it a few feet to make room for some drywall work and ugh, it really took it out of me. Definitely going to continue to take it easy as much as possible, though I am trying to walk at least a little bit every day. I really hope the second trimester is like last pregnancy and I feel more normal. Blew up the birth/exercise ball last night, ah it's so nice to sit on. DD wanted to play on it too, I may have to get one for her to play with so I can sit on mine smile.gif

We have always just been the polite "Hi" kind of neighbors and maybe a brief chat until recently. We got some new neighbors maybe 2 years ago and they had a baby. Now that he is ~18 months or so, my DD and him love to play together. So I still wouldn't call us friends, but his Mom & I especially have chatted quite a bit while keeping our kids from running into the road eyesroll.gif and DD constantly talks about them. Most of our neighbors are like us though, don't want to bother people and mostly stick to ourselves, but if for example I see some siding down at a neighbors house or that sort of thing, we always let each other know. So polite and watching out for each other, but not really friends.

It is so cool, isn't it. When your DH gets to hear it for the first time it will be especially awesome for him since he doesn't have the body changes you are feeling every minute, it will make the pregnancy so much more real.

Ugh, I hope you feel better timesway. It is hard at the beginning when you just feel fat. Just remind yourself you aren't fat, you are growing a baby and any extra fat is being stored with a purpose by your body.
