I'm gonna go ahead and call this the last week of the 1st trimester!! YAAHOO! I keep inching closer and closer to that month of September and part of me wishes I could go to sleep and wake up when this baby is out of my uterus and into my arms! :) In the past week, I've begun to feel considerably better. I've been cleaning and organizing (like, the file cabinet!!) we've been working on the kitchen again (after a long break!) and though I still have a touch of exhaustion, I feel motivated to DO things. I still have a teensy touch of nausea, but haven't puked in over a week! I have a study appt tomorrow, so there will be another ultrasound. I'm asking myself if before ultrasound appts if it would be a good idea to use the doppler prior to leaving - just in case - I don't want any big shockers, ya know? I'm not sure if I'll do that or not. I'm really trying to NOT use the doppler very much, esp. because I'm getting so many ultrasounds. The other, more normal question on my mind regarding ultrasounds is.. what if I see the sex and Shaun's not there (with so many, it'd be hard for him to make them all!)!?! Not that I've ever actually noticed that on an ultrasound on my own! hahaha Shaun is the expert on baby body parts... I couldn't tell Dresden had boy parts til we did the 3D ultrasound and them BAM... look at that! :) I'm still feeling overall VERY positive about this pregnancy. Even though it's hard for me to say it out loud and to really believe it sometimes.. I actually KNOW that everything is going to be alright.. this baby is going to come home with us!


Oh yeah.. one more thing. I just rememered a dream that I had last night. Someone I know (but not super well) was touching my belly in my dream.. then she was like, Oh, maybe I shoudln't?? and I said.. Uhhh YES you should!! You never know when your last chance will be! So, people.. yes, feel free to touch - esp later, when there is actually something resembling a baby gut to touch!! Give the babe lots of love.. I've never been one of those pregnant types to HATE being touched... if someone wants to give my baby some attention, why would I hate that?!! ESP. NOW! :)
