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}}}
