I just upgraded to the newest version of WordPress. So far, I like it alot, but there are still a few things I am trying to figure out. For some reason my links aren’t showing up in the sidebar to the right. Be patient with me though! I just need time… and more brain cells.
When I woke up this morning it was -5° outside and about 50° inside. Just toasty, eh?
On a happier, warmer note — I went for a sonogram last night! Got to hear the baby’s heartbeat for the first time. I’m now convinced there is actually a baby in there!!! lol
I need to go for a dating ultrasound soon because none of us can figure out how far along I am. I calculated 14 weeks along by now, but if my calculations were correct, according to when I ovulated, I also wouldn’t be pregnant! So I suspect I am at least 15 weeks into this pregnancy. I need to find out soon! Gosh, who knows… I could be 20 weeks and not know it.
Dan and I took a trip down to Massachusetts to go see my primary physician so I could finally get my prescription for Advair renewed. My asthma has been soooo bad for the past 3 weeks, since I ran out of my meds. One more week without it and I definitely would have gone into the hospital. Luckily though, I have it now and I am breathing much better today. Being able to breath is a luxury that most people take advantage of.
After a visit to my doctor, we went to take a tour of a birthing center nearby. They offer things like home birth, water birth, prenatal yoga classes, lactation consultation, and all kinds of great stuff. I was very interested in the water birth, which was how I found the birthing center to begin with.
The woman who ran the place was extremely easy to get along with, very find, polite, and warm. She explained everything about the center and answered all of our questions. It was a great experience.
After much thought and talking, Dan and I decided that we were going to have our baby at that birthing center. I am very excited that we finally made a decision and it is one that I am very comfortable and happy with. However, when we told the mom-in-law, she almost had a stroke. She hates midwives and natural birth options, etc. But that’s okay. To each his own!!
Much to my disgust, we are still looking for an apartment. Picky? Yeah, I guess we are. I don’t want to spend 1/2 of my husband’s paycheck each month on a tiny apartment in the bad side of town. All the good apartments in our price range don’t allow dogs. It just seems ridiculous! However, we do have faith that we will soon find an apartment that is affordable and has the amenities we are looking for. Please keep us in your prayers!!
