16 weeks 4 days

So far so good. I have been feeling great and getting bigger every day. Next Monday is our next doctors appointment and we will actually get to meet my doctor. I am hoping she will say that we can go ahead and find out the sex of the baby, but if not we will have to wait till I get back from Chicago.

This past weekend we went up to Walnut Creek to see Joey's mom, step dad, and Allison. It was a very nice weekend. On Saturday Joey's mom and me went shopping for some new maternity clothes. I found some really cute clothes and am happy and much more comfortable! That night we all drove out to Mountain View to see Kim and her fiance Andy. They bought a house a couple months ago, and we had not see it yet. Plus we still had to do our "Christmas" with them since we did not get to see them for the holidays. We went out for a nice dinner and then drove back to Walnut Creek.

On Sunday it was a very relaxing day. It actually rained all day, but we did manage to get out for lunch and to visit Eric's parents. We then went back to Joey's mom's house, chatted for a while, then drove back to Fresno.

The drive home was fine and got back around 7:15pm. Next week is our appointment and then the next week I will be in Chicago.

Valentine's Day Recap

This year it was very quiet for Valentine's Day. Joey met me for lunch at work and got me a prenatal massage! I can't wait, I have been looking forward for this since we found out I was pregnant. I am not really a "flower" kind of girl so I have asked Joey in the past not to get me any. I can't keep them in the house since the cats will knock them over.

Joey is the hardest to buy for for Valentine's Day. Last year I think I got him a card and some candy, but this year I had a different idea. Most of the pizza places around here do heart shaped pizza's for Valentine's Day. I have always thought it is a cute idea, but have never gotten them before. Since we don't like going out for dinner on this day, I thought this was the perfect idea. After I got off of work I went over to Papa Murphy's to pick up the pizza I had ordered earlier in the day. As I pulled up I noticed a line out the door! I thought that since I had already preordered I would not have to wait in that long line....nope, I was wrong. They had one line for new orders and preorders. After waiting 30 minutes it look about 30 seconds for them to get me my pizza.

I got home to surprise Joey with his heart shaped pizza! I thought about taking a picture of it, but we had already devoured it! I can't wait for tomorrow when I go for my prenatal massage!

I officially can't button my pants...14 weeks 2 days

So this past Wednesday I had a doctors appointment. It was a pretty normal appointment, she just asked some questions and then we got to hear the heartbeat. It was a pretty cool thing to hear. She said that from now on we would listen for the heartbeat at every appointment. I did have to have a TB test, and I went back today and everything is fine.

She also had me come back this morning for a glucose test. A couple weeks ago right after my mom and I had lunch we were in line at Kohls and I got really dizzy, got really hot, and felt like I was going to pass out. Luckily I had some candies in my purse so I grabbed a couple hoping to get my blood sugar up. This has happened to me in the past, a couple years ago, and came to the conclusion I have hyperglycemia. I had not felt that way in a long time, so really didn't think anything of it until this happened. When I told my doctor she didn't seem too concerned, but wanted me to fast and take blood just to make sure. I am not sure if they will call me with the results or just wait till my next appointment which is March 3rd. I was hoping we would be able to find out the sex at that appointment, but she said that I will have to wait till I am 20 weeks:(

Since I have been promising a picture of my belly, here is one. I tried my best, but it is a little blurry. I am not sure how much longer I will be able to wear my regular pants as they are getting tighter and tighter everyday.
