After 16 hours it's over!

Okay gotta be fast since I'm surrounded by boxes and I should really be unpacking. I just wanted to let everyone that we are moved.......well most of the way. The poor hubby spent all day and I mean 16 hours kind of all day, moving us. It was hot and we were exhausted but for the most part we are in! Now to finish out the week of repairs on the old house, cleaning the old house and a few odd jobs - then we are officially closing on the cracker jack box next Monday. Who would have thought that in the span of 6 weeks I would find out that I'm pregnant, sell 2 houses, buy a house and move the in-laws and my family.........and ALL in the first trimester when I basically felt like crap the whole time.

So on to fun stuff - the doctor's appointment went great. We have ONE very healthy baby with a heartbeat of 166 bpm. He/she was squirming all over and appeared to be pretty happy to be on camera. Oh and I only gained 4 pounds in 5 weeks. So that brings me to 12 freakin pounds in 12 weeks but I'm just glad that it wasn't 8 like my first appt. The doc came in and said my weight was great and all looked wonderful so what more could I ask for. Well, as soon as we were done I was asking for FOOD. I was starved so I had hubby stop for food - that probably blew my good gain out the window but I figure I have 4 weeks to be good so I could afford 1 splurge. Unfortunately, 1 splurge turned into 5 days worth........not bad but not great and more chips and salsa than I care to talk about. But today I'm back in the groove - it's amazing how much being out of a routine can throw you off.

Okay gotta sign off and get some stuff unpacked - I need clean clothes for work tomorrow and I've got no idea what box they are in........oh the joys of moving!

HUGS to all of you and I promise to catch up soon!

This is so me!

Just breathe....

So tomorrow begins the big event - we close on our new house tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. Then Friday is our ultrasound and then the move starts. I'm not sure how I'm going to get everything accomplished but it will get done one way or the other. I'm hoping by Tuesday of next week to be all in one house and weeding through boxes......crossing my fingers.

A couple of things to note - I have gotten back into my spin class on Saturday morning and Monday evening. Talk about a butt whipping! I feel great afterwards but I'm usually pooped.

In spite of my workouts I still seem to be putting on weight at an alarming rate. Now I know I'm OCD but I'm talking 8 to 10 pounds since my last visit (4 weeks ago). Somehow that does not seem normal to me. I'm a little concerned because the doc let me drop the blood sugar meds and now I'm freaking out about gestational diabetes. I'm trying to watch the carb intake some.........I've been eating way too much cereal and watermelon and brownie mix and bread.......hmmmm, come to think of it maybe that would explain my weight gain??? On a more exciting note - I'm finally looking pregnant rather than fat. In fact, a kid at the grocery store the other day actually asked me if I was having a boy or a girl.......I didn't tell him that it was too early to tell. I actually have some pictures from Sunday (11 weeks) that I need to post. Of course my incredibly empathetic hubby decides to pose me in front of the fridge saying "that is where the best lighting is".....yeah right, calling BS on that!

We also have our ultrasound on Friday so they should confirm 1 baby and take some measurements. I'm excited to hear a heartbeat and actually get some good pictures - the first one was just kind of a blob floating around black goo.........although I was incredibly thankful that our "blob" aka jellybean had a nice fluttering heartbeat!

I'll keep you all updated and until then {{{HUGS}}}

I hope our baby has his butt....

Because if he or she doesn't - I'm not going to be able to get this kid out! Is it humanly possible to carry a baby in your backside??? I have gone from "some" junk in the trunk to SALLY the FREAKIN' CAMEL. I realize what is causing this and I wish that I could honestly blame it on being pregnant but the truth is I have been abducted by aliens. Aliens that only serve cereal and milk - oh and dry brownie mix. Yes, I've been eating it by the spoonful out of the box.......not the cereal but the brownie mix! Classy, huh?? I do great during the day but about 7:00 I turn into a's that classic boredom eating and it's a bad habit. I'm hoping with the move I will get so busy in the evenings that I won't have time to graze?? I guess we will see how bad the damage is next Friday - my next doctor's appt. I get there and get that same sweaty palm, heart racing feeling that I got when I was overweight and had to go to the doctor......dreading the scale the whole way! Other than being pregnant, selling a house, buying a house and having a sleepover with 6 little boys this weekend there isn't much going on.......LOL!

Hugs to all of Sally the Camel and jellybean~
