New Blog

Thanks everyone for all the lovely wishes and advice. I appreciate it all. Since I am pregnant it is now more important that I stay gluten free and not slip up just because I am having "cravings". I started a gluten free blog. It will have gluten free recipes and just about my journey trying to stay gluten free for not only my health but for the health of the life that I am carrying within. It's called Gluten Free Delicious Dish. Check it out.

Second Ultrasound Results

I had my second ultrasound yesterday. Apparently I am further along than we originally thought. I am now 6 1/2 weeks along and the new due date is April 5th. Robert was there with me to do his Fatherly/Husbandly duty. We got to see the fetus on the monitor and got to see the heart beating. It was mind blowing. My O.B. gave us a little picture of our tiny fetus. I have been showing it to everyone.

I am still exhausted and nauseous everyday. I feel a little better once I take a shower and try not to look so gross. I am going to invest into those Preggie Pops and hope that they work with my nausea.

I am hestitant to be excited about being pregnant until I know I am far enough along that I won't have to worry anymore. But, even after the first trimester I am going to worry. It's just in my nature.

I wouldn't say I am "showing" already, but I would say I don't have much to wear that is comfortable fitting. I have a little bump, but I could still be "baby bloated" who knows. Then again, I did gain ten pounds already....

Updates

I know, I know. It has been over a month since I've "blogged" I am either having too much fun or I just don't feel like it. Well, what has been happening since the end of June? My mom came to visit. We took her to Solvang and just spent quality time with her. We had a splendid time and miss Mom very much. Can't wait to visit with her again.
Then Robert's sister, Leah and her friend, Aubrey came to California for a fun adventure. We went to Disneyland, Santa Monica, Zuma Beach, Ventura, Olvera Street, Fashion District, Hollywood, Universal City Walk, and Camarillo Outlets. The girls had so much fun and I know they want to come back. Robert and I loved having them here and hope they come back again.
Then we spent some time at Leo Carrillo visiting with my cousins and Aunt & Uncle. We had a blast and enjoyed every minute of it.
Last but not least. We found out I'm 4 weeks pregnant. We didn't plan this, but we are happy and terrified at the same time. I am already uncomfortable with how my body is feeling so I am not looking forward to 9 months of this. I am very aware of every little feeling I have in my body. I wish I wasn't. We are very surprised that I was able to get pregnant, my OB said it's most likely due to me becoming gluten free, so I don't have the gluten inside me to attack and malnurish me. The key is staying pregnant now. I am definitely afraid of another miscarriage, but if that's what happens then maybe that's what needs to happen to get more answers. We are trying to stay positive.
