As It Turns Out…

So Last Thursday… January 26th, We went in for our first doctor’s appt. YAY! Sooo, turns out we were 7 weeks into things and not 12… Good and bad things about the date change, but I guess things could be worse. The best part is that I won’t have to miss “Back to School” at work, which happens to be the busiest time of year for us.

We got an ultra sound and got to see Thor’s heart beating!!! That’s all we could really see, but KC said that’s all that matters at that point and that it was beating nice and strong! So that’s what we have so far, a picture of my uterus with a little new life growing slowly but surely inside of it. New Due Date, Sept 12, 2012

Other new news for this post, CAR SEAT!!! God sure works in mysterious ways because we got a gift of the exact car seat that we had planned to purchase on the day I was going to buy it! WOW, same color and everything. All I can say it that this experience is surprising me in new ways every day and teaching me to just let things happen without expectations.

Oh yeah, I told my boss as well and found out great news that I’ll be able to get a full 6 week maternity leave when Thor gets here. WOO! I’ll leave you with that, until next time!

And Now They Know!

Life gets crazier every day. As I work on finishing up my 11th week, I’m very proud to say  that I made the trip home (had to drive through a snow storm since my flight got cancelled) and told my parents the big news! They both were excited and informed me that they would like to be around when I tell my grandmother, who is a little crazy and will probably disown me for at least a day once I tell her.

This will be the first of their grandchildren that will be born into a good situation with two parents who are not drinking, smoking or doing any other drugs, and who are actually committed to one another. The first born into a situation where the parents aren’t taking advantage of other people’s tax money and living off of the state. The first grandchild from one of my mother’s children at all! We all thought it would be my little brother, but who knew?

I also took advantage of my best friends being in the same place at the same time and clued them in to what was going on so they could be prepared to be god parents! They were more shocked than anyone else I told this last weekend. Once they got over the initial shock  and stopped thinking that I was playing some cruel joke on them, I think they were both pretty excited! That or they have really been working on their acting skills…

So I promised that I would post about the Adiri Natural Nurser bottles once they came in, and when I got back on Monday, they were here… So here we go!

I ordered them from Overstock.com and they came in less than a week with only $2.50 for shipping! I was extremely impressed! They are one of the places that still carry the different flow bottles in the three different colors and for CHEAP! Once I got them home, they are a lot smaller than they looked in the pictures, but are even better than I imagined. Now I just need to order the warming cap and I’ll be all set!
