FORGOT to tell you about my latest purchase. A fetal Heart Monitor. I will get to hear BB's heart beat ANY time I want to. I may even bring it to school! I think some of my girls at school would love that. They are all dieing to know the sex. Every day they ask me when I am going to find out. Like somehow I need a reminder every day my next appt is March 23rd at 1:00. I say it everyday. AHHHH I need to know pink or blue.... pink or blue. I know some of you out there would prefer to wait till actual birth day to make it more special and a surprise. I hate surprises I like to know now! Well I don't hate surprises, sorry that was a lie, I only hate them if I know there will be a surprise because I think about it constantly.
I think waiting for a baby till birth day is plenty enough. My school work has suffered because I have baby on the brain. I have already started a Target registry but am limited to what to get because I just don't know all what I need yet. I don't want to get all GREEN or YELLOW items, I will need to wait for the blue or pink. I have been googling birth stories. I haven't decided about a birth plan yet. I know I don't want a cesarean. I am a wimp when it comes to surgery and can see myself having a panic attack right there on the table. The only real surgery I have had was tonsils and that is something I NEVER need to go through again. (FYI I think my spell check on here is broken, sorry, I am horrible, I know) So the decision is to whether or not to have an epiderial or not and honestly I don't know if I will be able to make that choice until my actual water breaks. Some of these birth stories are a bit scary and freaking me out. I think I need to stop reading them for a while.
I realized last week that I am going to need to know how to care for this child after it comes out of me so along with reading What to Expect When Your Expecting I have been reading What to Expect The First Year. I have tons of babysitting experience but never cared for a newborn. I started to have a minor freak out when I didn't know at what point do you start introducing baby food and solids or when should BB start crawling. Goodness, I need to baby proof this place. I think I am going to go buy some more books I have a lot to learn. I will be surrounded by family that will give me their input but I would like to educate myself on what to do!
(15 days till departure)
Anyways, Fetal Heart Rate Monitor please hurry up in the US Mail, I would like to take you on my cruise with me! With this nifty tool I will be able to record the heart beat onto the computer and post it on here! So I hope this puppy works!

14 weeks 2 days
Well ladies and gentleman nausea has diminished. I only gag now when I brush my teeth. And when I had to clean up after Sophie's potty breaks.... but that is normal. I haven't gotten any crazy boosts of energy but definitely feel lots better! Which means I am probably going to have to do my part of the household chores again... I am looking into a cleaning service. It would help to keep up with the place if someone come and do a crazy deep down clean. Is this me being lazy? YES.
According to the sites BB (Baby Bilski) is the size of my fist. I should know now because nothing fits! I don't want to go spend money on clothes right now because I want to save it for the cruise in 2 weeks! Arms are lengthening so they can punch my in the ribs later down the road. Ears are in place and eyes are squinting. BB is urinating which creates the fluid s/he floats around in, nice.
Ryan, myself, and some great friends went bowling on Friday. We had a great time. Work has been stressful as ever but I am determined to survive until spring break. After that I am counting down the days to Easter. After that summer!!!!!
