i relax

now that i haven't spotted in over a week, we saw the baby's heartbeat again, as of last tuesday, the baby had tripled in size, i'm no longer on pelvic rest, and i'm not as nauseous anymore, i can relax a little.

i'm enjoying life a lot more, and Daryl, Mia and i had a wonderful weekend together. i've been napping a lot and in general, relaxing.

what i would love more than a lot of things is if Daryl and i could get a way for even a weekend to Cozumel or Playa del Carmen. that's a spot in the world where we've been kind of a lot, and it always feels so good to be there. it's familiar and relaxing. i've been working hard baking our bun and taking care of the snapper....Daryl has been working hard, period. we need it, and we'll get there, it just may take a little time, but we'll get there :)

in the mean time, we relax any way we can. ahhhhhhh

My Life Path Number

as a reader of Andrea's blog, i'm tagged with this meme. if you're a reader over here, consider yourself tagged, too. hmmmm i think number 3 is pretty accurate...i think.

Your Life Path Number is 3

Your purpose in life is to express your unique self.

You are a creative and artistic person with an interesting view on life.

Witty and outgoing, you enjoy sharing your crazy ideas with anyone who will listen.

A total social butterfly, you're the life of any party.

In love, you inspire and enchant your partner. You are often an object of fantasy and desire.

While you are very talented, you sometimes lack the ambition to put your talents in play.

And while your wit carries you a long way, you occasionally use it to mask your true feelings.

Your natural abilities can bring you all the success in the world ... if you let them

it beats

i'll start off with the super fab news...we saw, not heard, the baby's heartbeat today!!!! now, what led us there at a day shy of 7 weeks....spotting. damn that spotting. a little bit last wednesday, then more and darker on fri night....while at the end of the session drumming party. then cramps, cramps and more cramps. i spent all sat asleep or wishing i was.

we got in to see the doc at 9:40 this morning....HUGE thanks to Andrea for lovingly caring for our snapper on a non-Casa T day. Daryl and i got to focus, and Mia got to hang with her pals and make holistic huevos rancheros. yes, they were holistic, thank you very much.

so, the monitor is facing the doc, nurse and husband. i, in a not so fun position, can not see a damn thing...except when Daryl's eyes got a little big and then a little sad. oh, the doc took a while to mention that they were measuring not an empty sack, but a golf ball size ovarian cyst. no worries, they come with the PCOS territory. then on to the real (not empty) sack and the baby growing in it...lil heartbeat and all!!! the doc questioned us about dates....hmmmm being able to see a heartbeat this early is rare. that's our baby! trust me doc, we planned, and i also referred to my blog entry. it's official.

Daryl and i smiled across the crowded room and silently mouthed our 'i love yous'. we are pregnant and the baby has a heartbeat. we KNOW things can happen and stuff, but right now, our baby has a heartbeat and that's all that matters.

oh, the spotting may be due to low progesterone levels...the labs will be in tomorrow. i'm hoping i'm not low....then i won't have to do the whole progesterone suppository thang!

recap: pregnant. heartbeat!

it's been a week since my last post, and nothing has been going on. seriously. nothing. i eat, sleep, hang with Mia, nap, hang with the hubby, eat, sleep...dude. a lot of nothing is going on because i'm still EXHAUSTED! making a baby and placenta must be some pretty tough work. if you're ever wondering what i'm up to, a pretty accurate guess would guessed it....nothing. and if you want to know what my husband is up to, well it's EVERYTHING. he works all day, then comes home and usually whips up something for dinner, cleans up and bathes Mia and gets her all ready for bed. all i have to do is eat and read her a story. he says there's a lot going on in my body and for me to lay on the sofa and nap or relax or read...i'm thankful for my loving husband, because of him, i can do nothing and not feel too guilty about it.

i'm getting sleeeeeeepy

Feeling fatigued or more tired is a pregnancy symptom which can also start as early as the first week after conception.


since finding out i'm pregnant, it's been smooth sailing....i'm already 4 weeks along and with being nauseous at times, the main symptom i'm feeling is the fatigue thang. i went to sleep at 10pm last night. woke up at 7:30 am...9 1/2 hours of undisturbed sleep, but i still woke up tired. i had the whole day to myself, and what did i do? hit Tiny Bird Organics for a few minutes...walked away with a frog for the baby, came home and took a nap...oh the most strenuous thing i did was shower, wash hair, and then a quick blow dry & style and i was whipped. i did get a nice 15 min walk the long way to the mailbox. i'm so counting that as exercise!

i'm trying out Sherry's drum class tonight...actually, two of them to see which level best suits me. now drumming is something i have energy for. i was all over it last night at Mae's class. i love this baby will be around so much rhythm and love from the beginning.

i think i need to go rest ;)
