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!

So glad to hear the move went smooth, it's always hectic the first couple weeks in a new home, but in the end it will be so much better!
1 lb/week, that's not bad, especially for someone that has a jellbean growing inside them! So happy to hear everyone is healthy, keep taking care of you both!

4lbs in 5 weeks isn't bad at all!

I'm glad to hear that the move went smoothly. 1 pound a week over 12 weeks isn't bad....Don't beat yourself up to badly. Have a great weekend!
