So after the stomach flu for 36+ hours - I'm happy to report that I'm alive and well. So is baby. We had a baby appointment this afternoon & heard the heartbeat again. My doctor said all is well for baby. As for me - I'll be fine too. The good news is I haven't gained any weight yet in my pregnancy & as you'll see in a picture below - I am showing...so I guess baby is using up some of my 'extra'. :)
I was blessed to have my sister & the girls come down yesterday afternoon to take care of me. Laura arrived & started helping with laundry, sorting my clothes that don't fit & making room for ones that do (thank you Beth!! I LOVE them!!), changing sheets, disinfecting the house, cleaning the litter box, going grocery shopping - etc. THANK YOU LAURA!!!
And I was very happy today that she was able to accompany me to my baby doctor appointment - I think she enjoyed that opportunity too. So fun. All is well.
Around 5:00 I got a call from my SIL that they were coming through town & were stopping for dinner - we went to meet them & for the first time ever, I got to have all of my nieces & nephews in one location! That was so fun for me. We had a great dinner (thank you Jeff for switching dinners with me-fickle pregnant lady) & then snapped a few photos before we left.
All in all my week is shaping up quiet nicely - I'm very thankful. And very blessed.
Eli, Melia, Auntie, Silas, Nellie
Me at 13 1/2 weeks (no - it didn't use to stick out that far - I promise)... :)
