10 week appointment

Started off with a weigh in and blood pressure then B and I went into the exam room and I had a full body exam including a pap smear and breast exam. I found out I am RH negative so I will need that shot before the baby is born. Then they surprised us and because I am almost not far along to hear the heartbeat with the monitor they did an ultrasound instead. B and I got to see baby Droid and even were able to see the heartbeat. It was soo reassuring to actually see the baby. We are ecstatic. I almost cried but held back the tears.

The Movers are Here!

They are packing up as I type this. We have way more stuff than I thought we did lol. All of the stuff the movers won't take is pretty annoying. I guess my neighbor Christina will just be getting alot of food from us lol. They take the stuff away on Thursday. Then Brian and I are left with an air mattress, our toiletries, the clothing we are packing, a small flat screen TV, our laptops, all the stuff they won't pack, camping kitchen stuff, our cable box, and our modems. We will be "roughing it" for about 2 full weeks and we will leave here on the 1st to go to my grandparents in Kansas City. We will be in KC for about 4 days and plan on going to the Ren. Fest while we are there. We catch the flight on the 5th to Hawaii. We fly first to Chicago then to Hawaii. I have not looking forward to the second leg because in my pregnant state I am going to have to spend alot of time on that tiny bathroom on board lol. Luckily, Binx will fly with us and we will get there in time to take him from quarantine that day. Brian has already started out processing on post. I am so excited! We are almost out of the hell hole.

Fun facts about Meghan #933

I cannot hold a grudge to save my life.

No seriously. In middle school I had a girl who stole my pens every week and tripped me in the hall. I was really good friends with her in high school.

I have had friends that I have deleted from facebook. They took the effort to add me back, I will say yes regardless of who they are.

I know that I have as well as everyone else have had bad days, weeks, and months. We have all said things we don't really mean because we were either in a really bad mood or following along with peer pressure. I get it, I understand.

That is why if a person makes the effort to add me back as a friend on facebook after being deleted, I will 99 times out of 100 say yes.

I even had a few people blocked. I did this to give space to allow us to cool down and not litter up other people's facebook pages with our anger. Because they don't deserve our issues to spread to their pages.

After the whole mess had cooled down and was forgotten I unblocked those people. It was unnecessary.

It is also unnecessary to have 1000's of friends on facebook because I talked to you once for a split second. If I am not talking to a person on facebook after a while I will delete because I like to keep my facebook clean. It is not that I don't like that person it was just that we weren't talking and friends talk.

That being said, if any of them were to add me back right now I would say yes.

I give people more chances than most deserve. I think it comes from growing up with a sister. I had to forgive and forget with her because she will always be my sister. That has crossed over into my personal relationships as well. Sometimes it bites me, like thinking that marriage was going to change my first husband. But for the most part the ebbing and waning of friends has allowed me to find a true core of really amazing women who I know I can talk to about anything and know they won't go spreading it around all of kingdom come lol.

So all that being said, If you add me on facebook, I will say yes. If after a few months we aren't really talking you will be deleted. After all, facebook is just a computer program........

Appointment update

So I had my appointment on wednesday. It went well and it sucked all at the same time.....

I got there 15 minutes ahead of time and they set me down with a novel of paperwork to fill out while I ate my breakfast. Then I turned in the clipboard and waited about 30 minutes to be called back. We sat with the doctor for another 30 minutes answering her questions and taking my blood pressure. She told me everything I already knew... Only gain 15 lbs, only eat one can of tuna a week, no big game fish (which may be an issue in Hawaii lol), no sushi, no smoking, no drinking.. No here is some good news though, I can stay on all my allergy meds for my asthma which I had taken myself off of because I didn't know if it was safe or not,  but, yay for Singulair and Zyrtec!!!! Then I went downstairs for blood and urine samples. I tried to warn the girl taking my blood that I don't give blood very well but she didn't believe me.... I had to give 5 vials of blood. She stuck me just fine, I shoot out blood like a champ but around vial number 3 I started cold sweating and B said the color dropped out of my face and my hands got like ice. She put the bandage on my arm and then she actually looked at my face and kinda freaked out. She layed me back and started fanning me until I felt better. I tried to warn her... This happens every single time I give blood, even when I got my tattoo. And it is not like I can't take the small amount of pain. I honestly think that it is my body going into shock for some reason. But after I recover, I am fine. Then I went in and gave the urine sample. This was the first time IN MY LIFE I didn't have issues with giving urine, I guess preggo pees are good for something lol. I have my next appointment at 9am on September 22nd and at that appointment we get to hear the heartbeat.
