This and that

This weekend was fun. The weather was perfect, and Aaron gave me a bunch of cute Mother's Day cards. I have to admit to a pang of sadness(? maybe? Hard to describe the feeling) that it took us so long to get to this point, but I'm happy we are here. We spent the whole weekend together doing yard work and hanging out and in general just being together, alone. Which was really nice. Plus - my yard and gardens are all looking great, and Aaron made me a little fence to protect my flower gardens from my monster dogs that think pretty flowers are for digging up and running through.

The other big thing we did this weekend was to tell my MIL that we were pregnant. I was SO nervous about her reaction - but she was actually pretty great. She did do a large pause when she realized that if I was due on Dec 5th, that meant I was over 10 weeks pregnant - but recovered nicely. I know it sounds horrible - but it's always a hit of miss thing with her if she is going to be nice or mean.... I'm glad she went with nice. And then we spent the rest of the day telling other parts of Aaron's family - and everyone was really excited, so that was fun. After my U/S on Tuesday, I'm going to send my Dad and Stepmother a picture and tell them the news.

Speaking of the u/s - I'm ok. I'm more excited then nervous at this point. On Saturday, I kind of overdid it again, and was a nauseous, gassy mess for Saturday night and parts of Sunday. As much as that kind of sucked - it made me feel like everything is going well! I guess I'm damned if I do feel bad, and damned it I don't. Ha.

My u/s is tomorrow morning at 9:30 - but with the drive time and the fact that we need to see my doc afterwards - I wouldn't think I'd be able to post the picture until around noontime.... but I promise not to keep you all in suspense!

Happy first Mother's Day!!!!

Telling the family makes it seem more real to me. We waited SO long the first time, and this time we *only* waited until I was 13 weeks along.

Yep. Just sitting here (at work) hitting the refresh button. It's not like there is anything else on my mind (except clue one on the mystery shawl I'm knitting)...Hope all has gone well and you're having lunch somewhere and kvelling.
