Here is the pic from my 6w3d ultrasound! Heartrate was 126bpm. It was pretty much the most amazing thing I've ever seen!

I had my first prenatal appointment today. After spending an hour waiting, I finally got to pee on a stick, have my blood pressure taken, and get a pelvic exam (whoopee!) The pregnancy test was positive, blood pressure was good, and my uterus "feels pregnant!" That was as good as I could hope for.

I got the note excusing me from work for the next 10 months! I can't wait to clean this house and decorate some cakes! It will be great.

I have a dating ultrasound on Wednesday at 1:30... keep those fingers crossed for me!!!!!!!!!!

How I'm feeling... (at 5w3d)

Pukey- but without the puke. I actually wish I just WOULD puke so that maybe it would just pass.

Tired- I'm always exhausted. I'm not sleeping well at night, constantly waking up at all hours. But then finding it impossible to remove myself from bed in the morning. YAWN

But all in all, nothing can dampen my excitement. I'm just thrilled. My therapist seemed shocked when I told her that I didn't have any fears or anxiety. But I just KNOW that this is going to be great.

Can't wait till my dr appt on Monday!

Well, yesterday, the NASCAR race was at MIS. I've been whining to James about how I can't find a shirt with my favorite driver on it (Jamie McMurray) anywhere. So he decides we should just drive 30 minutes out to MIS and get a shirt at the stands outside the race. So by the time we walked all the way around the 2 mile track twice (we walked right past his trailer the first go-around) I was too tired to walk back to the car- got to love pregnancy. So I decided to just walk up to the booth and see if there were any tickets left. They had some great tickets CHEAP since it was only 30 minutes til the start of the race. So I bought us tickets and we watched the race. We had a blast. I figured, we have to do this fun spontaneous stuff while we can! Jamie ended up in 11th, not too shabby!

Great news! I thought we were going to have to forfeit our $400 nonrefundable deposit for our cruise in January (they wont let you cruise over 24 weeks pregnant.) But once I explained our situation, they let us reschedule our cruise for October... we'll be cruising on my birthday! :D I am so stinking excited! So we're calling it our babymoon. YAY!!
