Still here...


This past week was CRAZY busy at work for me. Thursday we had a meeting at work that I had to go in for. I won't say we got our a$$es handed to us, but we got a nice chewing out. So needless to say Thursday was rough! Even DH noticed. When he came home, he told me "Gosh you look like hell." Gee...thanks dear. There is ONE thing I miss about not going into the office every day. It's the EXERCISE!!! I work for a hospital so when I was in the office everything was a good walk away. When I wanted to go to the "good" bathroom (read--cleaner), I would go up 3 flights of stairs. I did that on Thursday and actually told my boss I missed all the exercise I used to get when I was on site. :)

Other than that, life is busy too. We are gearing up for our annual fall party next Saturday. It's our 2nd year for it and we love doing it, but it's a lot of work. So we spent this weekend cleaning up the outside, cleaning windows (thanks to my mom who helped me out there) and smoking the meat for the BBQ. I'm so tired, I'm ready to fall into my bed.

As for me, I am feeling fine. There have been 2 or 3 nights this week where I haven't eaten dinner b/c I just don't feel like it. Friday I was still full from a big lunch. Today, I had a baby shower to go to where they served an awesome meal so dinner was NOT on my mind when I came home. We made our first batch of homemade ice cream today (thanks, again, to my mom) so I had some of that for dinner. :) Not the best choice, but I didn't want anything else! I am 7 weeks today and it still doesn't feel real. I absolutely can not wait until my first appointment on October 3rd. I hope they can find the heart beat then. Oh I hope....but if they can't, they may do a vaginal ultrasound to see the heart beat. I would love to have the ultrasound, though, but either way I don't care. Tonight DS had to kiss my belly before he went to bed. It was so sweet! He is just absolutely positive this is a girl. I don't care one way or the other. I truly don't.

My pants are starting to get a little tight at this point. Just a little. If I un-do the buttons, then it's not so bad. This in between period SUCKS! I don't look pregnant, so I don't feel right wearing maternity clothes, but my pants and some of my tops are tight (thanks to the growing chest I have now!), it's just rough! For those of you who have been there, you know what I am talking about. We are going on vacation in 20 days (just a wee bit excited!) but I am stumped as to what to pack for me. Ahhh...the wonderful joys of being pregnant! :) I'd like to make it through October before I pull out the maternity clothes, but at this point I am not sure I will!

I know I have been a bad blogger. But this week things look better for me in the evenings, so I hope to post a little bit more. I worked every night last week, thus my reason for no posts. I hope to be better this week. That is, if I'm not in bed by 8:00. :)

Have a great OP Monday!

I just wanted to say again that I'm so excited for you and your family!!


I'm so glad to hear that you're not having morning sickness and all of that icky stuff. Yay for that!!

And lucky you, I normally try to get people to name their children after me, regardless of sex, but since your name is Amanda, too, I won't hassle you.

(But my middle name is Kay and it's a perfectly wonderful middle name....) :o)

Have a great day and take care!!

I had the smae issue when I was preg with my DD -- I was wearing maternity clothes at 8 weeks! They were just more comfy. I did try to wear shirts that weren't too pregnant looking, though! 20 days is close to a month, so alot could change between now and then!

Glad to hear from you!! Hopefully work settles down a bit for you, there are perks to being slow and being busy.
I know exactly what you mean about the added excercise with working in the office. I used to walk 5-6 miles everyday at work. Now that I am in the trailer, I am lucky to get one in!
If it makes you feel any better, my sister still wears and buys maternity clothes, she says they are more comfortable. I think it is funny, but it's hard to tell the difference these days!

I am so excited for you - pregnancy is the only time that I am okay with gaining weight and I say that if maternity clothes are more comfortable, then wear them! Like Mal said they look like regular clothes now days anyway!! Keep us updated - I need to live vicariously through your pregnancy until the stork actually visits me.
