10 Weeks

Here I am again. Nothing to show! And yes, I am still sick. I get this question a lot. The first trimester has not been any fun so far and I am counting down the days until it is over...and praying that the "morning sickness" goes with it!

Another bummer of the first trimester: no hair dye! This is pretty shallow I realize BUT my 10 year high school reunion is coming up. In fact, I am headed to my hair stylist on the day of the reunion, which happens to be exactly 12 weeks! And I cannot wait to have some new hair!

Here's a dilemma: when I go back to my next OB appointment on the 1st, they will want to know if we want to do an early blood test for birth defects that will make the next test in the next trimester more accurate. The doctor said it is covered by insurance but knowing mine, it won't cover all of it. And it's not like the results will change anything for us, you know? So what should we do?

In other news, my super athlete husband ran his first half-marathon at White Rock Lake yesterday. Go honey, go! He is going to run a full marathon there in December. Here is a pic of us in the Dallas Arboretum after the race:

And Mamaw and Papaw Barclay joined us!

Eight Weeks

Well, here's me at 8 weeks. Nothing too exciting yet. :) Yes, I look a little out of know, morning sickness and all.

This is someone's brilliant attempt at making morning sickness cute. Still not cute, however I do find the candy helpful sometimes!

We had the first doctor's appointment and sonogram earlier this week and everything looks great! We were able to see and hear the heart beating. You know, I knew I was pregnant. Positive test and all the symptoms right? But there is something about actually seeing a heart beating inside of you that firms up reality.
