13 weeks!

I'm almost done with my first trimester! Thank heavens the Augmentin that I was given cleared up my sinus infection so that I could start enjoying this pregnancy! I had my first OB appointment and actually lost 2 pounds my first trimester! I didn't think that I was that sick. The Dr. said it was OK - it happens often the first 12 weeks. I'm not as tired as I was, but still am pretty wiped out these days. Don' tknow if it's the pregnancy thing or if I'm just not sleeping well.

I got to see the baby on an ultrasound at the doctor's office! One little bean in there - she said she could see good limb development, good placental development, and a heart beat! What more do we need?! It hasn't seemed totally real until I saw that picture - she even gave me a print out - it's so small, but it's there!

Still sick

This is crazy. I've had a sinus infection for 5 weeks now. I've been on 10 days of Amoxicillian and 5 days of Zithromax and still feel like heck. I can't breath through my nose during the day. To use my CPAP at night, I have to use saline to clean my nose, blow like crazy, and then coat the skin under my nose with Mentholatum. I've been to the walk-in clinic and seen a family practice doctor and talked with an OB nurse. I'm ready to be done with this!

Emily has a basketball tournamet that starts tonight at 4:30. If they win, they play tomorrow at 10:50. If they lose, they play at 8:30 AM. (I told her they better win.) Rob doesn't get home until 6 PM, so I still have an entire day without him around. I felt quite a bit better yesterday and actually got some cleaning done - the kitchen looks better as does our bedroom, but there's still a ton to do and laundry piled high.

On a positive note, I'm at 11 weeks now, so think that my exhaustion should be nearing the end. And my morning sickness is pretty much gone. I still have stomache aches, but they're not constant and they seem to dissipate with food. I am going crazy waiting for my first official OB appointment on February 19th. It seems so far away!

Scrapbooking weekend

I returned Sunday afternoon from a super weekend of scrapbooking, rest, and socialization. Some friends from work (and Kim from MN), met at a villa on Lake Reno and had a blast. The owner of the villa waited on us and fed us awesome food. I only got 14 pages done because I ran out of pictures (left stacks and stacks on my desk at home), but I went to bed early, slept in late, and just rested to get rid of this terrible sinus infection that has rendered me useless for weeks. I can finally breath through my nose for the first time in 5 weeks! Now if I could just get over feeling so exhausted. But, being pregnant can do that to you! I'm 10 weeks along, so in 2 weeks I should get another burst of energy. (My fingers are crossed.)

Rob's in Redmond this week at a conference - he's presenting. Of course, the day he leaves we get 3 inches of snow! I've asked my neighbor if he would snow blow our walks as Rob doesn't want me out there doing it. (And I'm not sure I should be, anyway!) Only 3 more days and I can sleep in again!
