So originally we were supposed to have our ultrasound this coming monday (Aug. 4th) but our RE is going to be on vacation that week, so he bumped us to the following monday (Aug. 11th)!! UGH!!! So as of today we have 12 days left until the ultrasound. I've been going crazy since this weekend, wondering what's going on in there. I have no clue how I'm going to make it another 12 days.
As far as symptoms go, I'm super bloated, my pants are tight, I'm overly emotional and I should wear a shirt warning people of that. I truly believe I could go to bed by 3 p.m. every day, and I'm already having waves of nausea and heartburn. There better be two in there, or these symptoms better let up when I stop the meds, because I didn't experience this much this early during my pregnancy with R and it was rough enough!
I am getting very excited for the weekend before the ultrasound though! M is flying out Saturday, and R & I will drive down that afternoon. She booked us an adorable (and I'm sure way too expensive) room in Santa Monica . The hotel looks adorable, and I can't wait to have a girls weekend! She wants to take me shopping for maternity clothes, but we decided we don't feel comfortable doing that until after we see a heartbeat (or two). Even though our beta numbers are so strong we just don't want to take them for granted. Once we see that little flicker on the ultrasound screen we'll feel much better! Tomorrow is the 5 week mark! The little heart should be forming, and getting ready to start beating as we speak :)
On the home front, P's birthday is the 12th! We're having a Nintendo theme party for him. Basically pizza, drinks, and the whole family night playing video games. I'm going to attempt to make a Wii shaped cake! Hopefully it turns out alright. I'm going to bake the cakes when I get home after the ultrasound, and then frost & decorate it the morning of his birthday. Other than that, decorations and everything are going to be really simple. I hope it'll be a somewhat relaxing party since everyone will just be eating and playing games. We'll have the Wii set up of course, and I'm trying to get my hands on an old nintendo system with the original Mario and Duck Hunt. I think the adults would love playing that since it's basically what we grew up with!
Well, I'm off to go eat lunch and feed "Lil Fish" or "Lil Fishies" as I've nicknamed the baby/babies! Hope they like spaghetti today!
