So this week has been fairly uneventful. I had my appointment last Wednesday and all was well. The doctor was able to find the babe's heartbeat in like 10 seconds, which completely calmed me. It was wonderful to hear, she actually said "Sounds like a girl." I guess the heart was beating fast! She didn't give me the actual rate, which is fine, because we all know I can't stay away from google.
This week M started working on the patio in the back. He's laid off for a few weeks and he wants to get it done before the weather gets too nice. Our backyard is basically completely dug-up right now, but I have faith that he knows what he's doing and it will look beautiful. I can't wait to have enough space to actually push the chairs away from the table when we are using the patio!
On other exciting news, my cousin in FL had her baby this week!! A beautiful little boy named Jack. She bragged on facebook that she only had to push for 20 minutes, I'm hoping that runs in the family...
We've also spread the news about the baby a little bit more. I told some of the teachers that I work with at school, and we all know that in a building full of women, that the entire town will know by the end of the week. I figured I'm at a safe point right now and I don't need to worry. Not to mention one of my co-workers that I had to tell decided to spill the beans when I was only 7 weeks to another teacher in the district. It would only have been a matter of time before it reached my school and parents would be calling me to ask. I'd rather have a little bit of control over the situation.
For the weekly poll thing...
How far along? 11 weeks 2 days

What I miss? I don't miss anything, because I'll take all the symptoms over 'not pregnant' any day
