Whoa Baby!

He he he...

Well I had my first ultrasound on Friday, the 20th. All looks great with baby and me! The Dr. didn't tell me what the heart rate was. But we did get to see the heart beat. She did say it looked great. That's got to be better than good. I could see the little arms the head and body and the umbilical cord. I couldn't pin point the legs though. They must have been curled up. Anyways my 2 yr old son now says there will be two babies. Him and the new baby. LOL Got to love that boy. He just refuses to give up his title!
On the crocheting side of things, sadly, all is not going well. I haven't done any work since my last update. I have had all of this morning sickness and fatigue for this first trimester. And it's kicking my but! But the good news is that I only have 3 or 4 more weeks untill it should all be over! I need to get busy on the house and my crochet!

Time for an update

I went to the Dr on Monday to get my progesterone levels checked. Everything looked great! I am right on schedule. Dr said I should be at at least a 10 and I am at a 15. I am so relieved to hear that. I am having different symptoms this time. When they say every person is different and every pregnancy is different, they are right! This time I feel slight cramping(normal for the pulling and stretching) and some mild nausea. With my other two guys I didn't have any of this cramping, at least not so soon. And I didn't ever have any morning sickness! TG!!! But this time I can only eat up to a certain amount. If I get to full I feel sick. And then I am hungry with in an hour or two. I hate it! I like to get full and eat only twice a day, sometimes three. Now I have to eat at least three times a day, plus a snack or two. Oh well. Such is life... hahaha. I love being pregnant though! I can't wait until I get to feel the baby. And I hope this one moves more than my youngest son. I love feeling them move around inside my belly. Until, that is, the last month when they are kicking my ribs and bladder. That's no fun! I have my first ultra sound on Feb. 20th. I should be 9 and a half weeks by then. So I should be able to get some good pics of a baby shape in there instead of just a bean. LOL

On to my crochet! Well I haven't really done too much. I don't seem to have the time to sit and do that to much lately. But I am almost half way done with a baby blanket for my neighbors new little girl. I am using an H hook and Bernat Satin in Sea Shell. It 's the Diagonal Box Stitch. I have grown to love it! It's so simple to do! It does get pretty monotonous at times. But that's OK. It doesn't slow my down because I love the look! Here's a couple of pics.
