I'm still alive!

So embarrassed that it took me this long to post again. I had a crazy couple of weeks. Work was exhausting, then my car broke down--had to get a new one (my first new car!). Then, I visited my grandma for her 70th birthday (no Internet there). When I returned last week, hubby needed the computer every night to do presentations.  I caught up on reading blogs on Mother's Day, but many of my blog friends had bad news, so I felt bad posting my good news. This week I've felt like crap.  So, lots of excuses.  Still feel horrible about taking so long.  Thank you to those who checked on me!

So, we saw our baby's heart beat on May 3rd (6weeks)! Then again on May 10th (7 weeks)! I'm 8 weeks today. Neither of my past pregnancies lasted longer than 6 weeks. So, we are pumped. This is the first time we've seen the heartbeat. Judging by that and the way I feel, things are progressing nicely.

We graduated from RE and are now choosing an OB. How do people do this?? How do you know that the one you are choosing is competent??  Ugh. We need to figure this out.

I'm sorry to my friends who have had bad news. I feel horrible for you. I was really hoping to be pregnant together with you. I feel guilty that mine is progressing normally.  Hope you all are well.  Sorry, again, it took so long to update.


  1. Awesome news!! I've been thinking about you and am happy to hear things are going well.

  2. I'm just so glad to know everything is going well!!! How wonderful to hear the heartbeat, and I hope as the days go by your feelings of confidence will increase. I am VERY happy for you and want to assure you that good news from friends gives those of us awaiting our own a great boost of positive energy. So keep sharing!

  3. It all sounds like a 'normal' preg, isn't that a blessing! Picking a OB is a word of mouth thing. I wanted a female when I had my son, so that cut back my choices ALOT. But the 2nd one I rang I picked. They book out quickly, as they only take a certain amount of clients per delivery month. So dont leave it too long. Best wishes!!
