13 Weeks!

This week has been full and busy! My sister, and my nieces, were here for a week! We had a fun time and I miss them already! The house is much too quiet with them gone. Lilly, who is two, wanted to stay with Auntie and I wanted to say, "sure you can stay another week". I knew though that her Uncle Gregie was tired and ready for some peace!

We did lots of shopping for my nieces and lots of dreaming for my baby! I wanted to buy so much, but since I don't know the sex of the baby I just couldn't buy any outfits. I did finally purchase this diaper bag that I have wanted forever! I saw it at Pottery Barn Kids about two years ago. I said, "when I get my baby I want that bag"! To my surprise, PBK still had the bag and better yet it was on sale!

I know there will be many more bags for I love handbags, but it was fun to purchase my first baby bag!

Heather was so much fun to have around. She shared so much with me. She is quite the pro at having babies! She had lots of advice, tips, and just reassured me about all my worries. Thanks Heather!

Overall things are going great! I feel so much better now. I don't have the nausea anymore. My doctor had told me to stop drinking so much water (I have always been a huge water drinker) and to switch to Gatorade. I started drinking that G2, by Gatorade, and it has helped me immensely. Also, I love ice cream, but ice cream doesn't agree with me right now. On the occasions that I have actually vomited it has been after ice cream. So, no more ice cream for me. Greg said, "the baby must be lactose intolerant". I don't think there is any truth to that one, but who knows.

I'm not sure I have told you all how awesome Greg has been! I knew Greg was amazing before getting pregnant, but gee whiz, he has been so wonderful to me. He just goes with the flow. If at the last minute I don't want to cook supper and say "can we just have grilled cheese?" he says, "sure". If a commercial makes me cry he gives me a hug and laughs at the fact. If I have worries, he reassures me that all will be fine and perfect. He tells me I am the most beautiful Mama he has ever seen. Who would have thought at 18 years old I knew this was my Prince. I love you Greg!

Ok, better go, I'm crying huge tears and I need to watch the Olympic Basketball game!
