An appetite renewal, and a baby sleep sack / gown

Today I was happily whisked on a road trip with my good friend Martha.  We went on a 2 1/2 hrs galavant through the countryside and enjoyed ourselves immensely.  I finally have my appetite back, and was in love with my lunch today.  A huge plate of DELICIOUS nachos with spicy chicken.  AMAZING!  I was very gluttonous, and poor Martha had to watch.  Poor thing, she was VERY cute, and understanding.  We joked that if I had gotten the El Grande portion I probably would have finished those too, and not just my "single".  I got some amazing yarn, including the ones featured below which is a silk blend.  SO SOFT!

This little ditty I love so much!  It started as a vest, and then continued onto become a gown of precious proportions.

Check out our shop for the $3.00 pattern, and make some little bibs for those little ones!

First Ultrasound Today!

(Sorry it is so blurry...The OB really zoomed in)

After a bit of spotting my OB wanted to do an U/S.  So Julia (my biggest champion and support), Jay, and I went in for the babes first photo shoot!

Julia held my hand through the whole thing, and was so sweet.  Jay kept smiling at me and the screen.

We went to my OB where I felt like I was at a spa...literally.
Heated seats, aromatherapy, soothing music, ambiant lighting, and the option of a foot massage while I waited.  Man a lot had changed since my last OB appt there 7 years ago!

At anyrate our little babe was present, and measuring 6 W 0 D which is the exact date it should, and it is in the uterus.  I have a cyst on the R ovary, but otherwise the babe is healthy and we saw a very prominent flicker of the H/B pointed out by the MD (we did not get a rate tho).  We are relieved and excited, and optimistic beyond words can express. I have a repeat U/S at just under 9 weeks, and I can not wait to see the babe then. I am sure I will be spotting more from the probe and U/S but I am on cloud nine, and this puts my mind so much more at ease.

There is a bun in my oven!

It is very very very early, but I am pregnant with our second babe, due July 10th 2011!

(I have taken 6 tests so far) LOL

I made the little one a little unisex sweater vest.
I have to stay ahead of the crafting curve that Julia is already crafting for this little one! SHE ROCKS!

Seriously, look how tiny!

I am soooooo excited!!!!!!!!
Can you hear my squeals?
