Rambling & Pics

February 20, 2012

This past week has been, well, boring. So much so that I didn’t even have anything to write about, and I’m tired of writing about feeling sick so really that left me with nothing.

I’ve gotten some energy back although I tend to pass out at random times on the couch still. The sickness has let up quite a bit and I’m hoping against hope it continues this way. I’m in maternity pants. I was going to hold out but after breaking the zipper of my favorite jeans while trying to stretch them over my stomach I realized I was being dumb.

This weekend Bella and I both got our hair cut. It was her first one, and she seemed like she was going to be ok until the clip things went in her hair. Then she melted down.

I hate everyone/Blue's Clues FTW/Cute hair

But after Daddy gave her his phone to play with she was fine. And it came out super cute – the back was all layered but she wouldn’t hold still long enough for me to get a shot. 

I got mine done too:


You can see in the first how long and strangly looking it was getting. Omg. I hated dealing with it. It was so dry on the ends and took so much work to do every day. I ended up throwing it in a bun or low ponytail almost every day. I love how simple the new cut is – takes me 5 minutes to straighten or nothing if I leave it curly (yep, I have naturally curly hair).

Today is our first ultrasound and I’m excited and, of course, nervous. According to me I’m 9 weeks 1 day, according to the chart I’m over 10, so I guess we’ll have a new due date and all that after this! I heard the heartbeat clearly on Thursday and that was really neat. So fast, I’d forgotten how fast they are.

BlissDom is Thursday, it deserves a post of it’s own for all kinds of reasons, but for now I’ll just say I’m excited and can’t wait to stay up at night gossiping with Beth Anne and getting my nerd on during the day at the writing sessions. And swag. I’d be lying if I didn’t say that was something I’m looking forward to as well.

So that’s about it. Cross your fingers for us today, that we get a good shot of this little one and everything is on track. And maybe measuring ahead, so I’m in second tri sooner and get some energy back.

I’ll post pics tomorrow!

    I love your new haircut! Very cute. Bella’s is cute as well. I admit, I am avoiding get my daughter’s hair cut for as long as possible. I want her to grow it out, but right now it’s growing more in the front than the back so it gets in her eyes.

    Good luck at the ultrasound today!

    Cute hair for both of you! I read your post asking when to wear maternity clothes and laughed because I started wearing mine between 6-8 weeks! I had a previous c-section and I did not my pants feeling snug across that area so I jumped in early. Plus maternity clothes are so cute now why would I not want to wear them?! I hope the tiredness gets better, it got worse for me but I think it was partially due to cutting out caffeine.

    I’m so excited for you about the ultrasound! You and Bella look gorgeous (as usual). I am in the process of trying to grow my pixie cut out. In fact, I’ll be posting my monthly vlog in a few days. 😉

    Also, I am at 15 wks 3 days and still tired…
