I am so sick of peeing constantly so that can subside any time now! Don’t get me wrong I am trying to embrace any and all symptoms as that assures me the baby is growing strong but that only takes ya so far ;) Other symptoms at this point are: tiredness, those dang headaches, and a little bit of increased hunger but nothing sounds good most the time.
My belly is definitely bloated at this point and finding work clothes to wear each day for next month may prove interesting. My chest is also growing but not quite as rapidly as it did with Gabby (thank goodness!).
We went to Jen and Wally’s wedding on Saturday night and was soooo hard not to spill the beans to several people. But I have been doing good and the tally has still been kept under 4 or 5 people total that know. I am really hoping for an ultrasound at first appointment as that will be how we reveal to Gabby she is going to be a big sister! May be an interesting reaction from her no matter how we tell her that is for sure! LOL.
Gabby is grounded from tv in her room this week due to her turning it on 3 times last night after she was supposed to be trying to go to sleep! Such a determined stinker at times! She is also supposed to start vacation bible school tonight at the church across the street….might be interesting to get her to stay there too unless she sees someone she knows (PLEASE let her see someone she knows!). I know she will have fun as she hasn’t really had much other chance this summer to interact with other kids. If she goes and has fun we will sign her up for another one that starts last week of the month as well at another church haha! What stinks though is both these churches are holding it at night time which is just odd, but guess they need people that work to be able to volunteer to work it and not to mention kids whose parents may work during the day. Granted I work but Gareth is home all day with her so would have been nice for him to get a couple hour break each day haha.
Still trying to figure out how we will do the big reveal to my family. Gareth plans on sending his mum a grandmother card of sorts. I really would like to put an ultrasound pic in a card or something but not 100%. Gabby also has a big sis tshirt she could wear that I could do a picture of her in it to put in a card too!
Ooh just realized one month exactly until I go to the doctor for first OB visit! YAY! I think I am approx. 5 weeks today but not 100% so hopefully will find that out at doc visit too! So excited!!!

I made first appointment and it is not until August 13th! I should be around 8 weeks or so by then so I am hoping to get an ultrasound. I have been quite irregular since we started trying so will make sure to emphasize this to the doctor!

He told me not to tell anyone until the doctor visit confirmed and we heard heartbeat etc...now for those that know me I am AWFUL at keeping secrets...I of course let various online communities know since well they don't "really" know me or our families etc haha! I also told a couple close friends and he told one of his close friends...but the rest of family and friends will have to wait!

- Gabby is back home and already bored with summer, please let the new pool at apartment open SOON so she does not drive Gareth nutty!
- I started the couch to 5k program but only on week 2 thus far and don't dare jog outside yet for fear of tripping over a sidewalk crack
- We are on our 3rd cycle trying to make a spawn ;) Would be nice to fall preggo before garage sale season is done!
- I plan to go this month to hopefully get funding through No Worker Left Behind so that I can learn a new job skill!
- Job Skill/schooling I hope to pursue will be Occupational Therapist Assistant
- Still a bit bitter my Bachelors in Psych is pretty worthless
Looking forward to having Friday off of work and hitting the local annual art fair and also the dog beach with Bruno and the fam if weather is nice! Also looking forward to a 4th BBQ and of course for Gareth to see his first American 4th of July Firework show!
