Not so much....

Today has ended up being a Not So Much kinda day...I went to bed last night with a lil headache and woke up this morning feeling pretty good...still a little headache so I took my time this morning. My plan for the day was to get the bathrooms cleaned up, laundry done, ironing completed, clean the kitchen (as I have just rinsed and stacked the dishes since Sat...yuck...I know...but at least they are rinsed). I completed a half of one of them...geez......I had (still have a lil one but not as bed) a horrible headache that sent me to the couch with a cold compress and lots of sleep. And then it started to rain and our puppy Austin needed to come inside....oh the dog wrestling that starts, the noise...just gets on my nerves, if they could wrestle/play silently that would be wonderful....too bad I don't have a mute button to press in their direction. And then the doorbell rings....the package of birthday gifts that I have tried to send my sister TWICE is back on my front porch...wrong address twice now (I had her old address memorized but then she had to go and move to a nice new big house and change her address in the process) I called her of course...we figured out the problem...I had Glenn Haven Ct instead of Lynn Haven Ct and the zip code was all mixed up....who knows...Glenn and Lynn sound alike. So my nephews gift will be very late and hopefully when I send this off tomorrow..for the last will not arrive at my door step but rather hers in time for my nieces birthday.
Oh and I have not completed by bible study heart-work yet either, looks like I might be doing the last two days tomorrow morning....yuck...not what I wanted either.
So, today, Not So Much kind of day...the master bathroom is almost done, I just need to finish the floors and find the Windex (Mr. Wonderful used it last and I have no idea where he might of placed was in a compartment in his truck...cause he never knows when he might need to clean the windows...WHAT????) so I can clean the mirrors. Nothing else completed, dishes still stacked on the counter, laundry still in piles, clothes still waiting to be ironed, bible study needing to be accomplished and the wrestling continues.....
I have to have my house clean...we leave Thursday for vacation and I love to walk into a clean know when you walk in and think....the cleaning fairy has been here...and even though you are the cleaning have not had to clean for at least a couple days because you were on vacation....and once you arrive home from said vacation you almost need another vacation to recover from the vacation you were know...the laundry and "stuff" that ends up in a common room in your home once you unload the car and suitcases. Plus trips to the grocery and all the other errands that need to be caught up on....So my house must be clean...and I mean CLEAN by Thursday....the less stuff that I have to do when I get home from vacation...the less stuff that is waiting for me....the better.
I hope that tomorrow will be a better more productive day. I hope tomorrow and Wednesday are not....Not So Much Days!

What about you, do you have to have everything clean before you leave the house on a vacation? Do you stay up late the night before you leave to make sure that EVERYTHING is clean and done? Or can you just not worry about it...or are you so organized that everything is always done and there is no mad cleaning rush to that last day at home before a vacation?

Unbuttoning those jeans....

Here I am week 10! My pants are getting a bit on the tight side, I can button them but it does not feel good, so I bought Bella Bands and am using those right is a picture of me taken this morning...Just a little of a belly....I was not at my ideal weight starting this pregnancy so...I hope to only gain the 15 to 20 pounds. At my first OB appointment (8 weeks and 4 days) I weighed the same that I did before we got pregnant. I am feeling great, no morning sickness, headaches or anything really to complain about....Although...I had no idea that I would have periods of horrible gas...and even though I expected the tiredness I did not expect the exhaustion that overtakes me. On other happy Mr. Wonderful pins on Major this month! I am so excited for him and this accomplishment....he works really hard and although we knew that he was selected almost a year ago we did not know when the pinning would take place. I will have to post a couple of pictures of the ceremony. My parents are going to fly in for the pinning and will be able to stay for a week! I am looking forward to spending time with them and talking with my mom, she birthed all of her 8 girls naturally and is also a Doula....We are planning on having her here for my labor and delivery. I guess that is it for now....not much going on around here...just quiet days...I really should get started on my Christmas projects....December will be here before we know it. Do you make your Christmas gifts? Do you shop the whole year for gifts? Or do you wait for the last minute?

6 Weeks New

We are 8 weeks now...this little one is six weeks new...looking at pictures and reading how she/he is growing and changing week to week is amazing. Our first OB appointment is tomorrow! I am excited and nervous too....what if he does not see anything? What if this pregnancy is not real? I know the preggo stick had a big plus and the blood test confirmed and then more tests to show my hormone levels also confirmed the changes happening in my body.....It is just that we have waited for 5 long years to get pregnant, had several long cycles....and well I guess I feel cautious and hopeful.....I wonder if other women have questions like this? I have been pretty lucky far only fatigue, sore girls and a little bit of mood swings...nothing morning sickness or nausea...for that I am grateful....although Mr. Wonderful said, "shouldn't you be getting sick? Is everything ok with the baby if you do not?" I know the stats that 15% of pregnant women do not experience morning sickness so.....I just remind him of that percentage and tell him of several people I know that never had morning sickness. The funny thing is that his questions make me wonder too....I guess that is all normal. I just can't wait for tomorrow.

There is also a small chance that we could have twins as we were on fertility meds when we we will find that out tomorrow too. I have no ideas/thoughts/feeling towards whether we are having one or two. Mr. Wonderful teases me that there are two in there...but then he says that he really does not know...that he just wants to tease me...nice...thanks babe!

I guess that is it for now....I will post tomorrow....I am anticipating the visit as if I was starting the first day of school or a new job....I guess in some ways it is a "new school or job"....I just hope I can sleep tonight....I'm sure that that will not be a problem though.
Did you have questions and doubts about even being pregnant before you had your first appointment?
