A change of pace

Since I spend most of my blog space talking about my fears and complaining about stuff, I wanted to take some time to talk about GOOD things!! (Can you believe it?!?)

I'm 15w4d today. Although I'm still nervous, I'm beginning to let myself believe that this baby might actually make it. When it comes to symptoms, I'm feeling really good right now. I have much more energy and no nausea or headaches. My smallest jeans are uncomfortable to wear, but I'm not ready for maternity pants yet. That means I have about 3 pairs of pants that really work right now. (I still haven't pulled the "maternity clothes" tub from the basement yet. It hasn't been upstairs since I was pregnant with D, and it feels like a very big step.)

There are lots of good things going on with my internet ladies right now. I love reading about the successes that so many people are experiencing. I've been at this blogging thing for about a year and a half now, and I feel like I've really "gotten to know" these people and become invested in their stories. It's so thrilling to be part of something so personal and so significant in their lives.

We got a Keu.rig coffee maker from T's brother for Christmas. (Yes, we just celebrated Christmas with them. Don't ask.) T thought it was kind of an over-the-top useless present, but I think he'll change his tune when he has his first 1 minute cup of coffee! Of course, I'm going to have to come to terms with the exorbitant cost of those K-cups versus buying coffee in bulk. ;)

I was having a "difficult" day with D the other day (he's two, after all!) and T came home with a dozen roses for me because I sounded stressed out on the phone. I know I don't talk about him much on this blog because I try to keep things relatively anonymous, but have I mentioned how much I love that man? :) :) :)

Going today to get the second half of my sequential screening bloodwork. The NT scan and the first half of the bloodwork results all came back normal, so hopefully these will too and we'll have one less thing to think about. I guess they took a glucose level too, which also came back normal.

This is getting long, so I'm going to end it, but I'm feeling very lucky right now, and I'm hopeful that things will continue moving in the right direction.

I am so happy for you! You'll be busting out those maternity pants before you know it!

My mom got us a Keurig last year. It's the best thing ever - but you're right, the k-cups are exorbitant. we buy them on sale when we can, and we got one of the reusable filters to use with regular coffee.

What a sweet hubby! I know what you mean about breaking out the maternity clothes. It is a huge step, and it is so hard to put them away with no baby. But, thanks to the Fruit Salad, I have been in maternity pants for quite a while. Sigh...

I am glad you are so positive and happy! :)

What a sweet hubby indeed.

Thanks for sharing your positive positiveness! :)

Wow! What a great husband you have. He's a keeper for sure!

I recently came home from a conference to a dozen roses, a half sour pickle and a bag of my favorite potato chips. Thoughtful husbands make remaining positive so much easy. I'm glad you are feeling well and so very happy for you. I know what you mean about "getting to know" your fellow bloggers. It's amazing how close I feel to all of you.

So glad you are doing well :)

What a sweet husband :) I can't complain too much either lol. Mine held my hair while I puked for 4 months when I was pregnant with my son and now our daughter, and still brings me granola bars and a drink in the am so my blood sugar is not too low before I get up.

Aren't we lucky?
