it's already Thursday, and we're moving away from fruit!!!

We went down to Atwood Lake with family for Father's Day, and stayed to enjoy some golf, some wine, or some grape juice, depending on who you ask.  It was a very nice time, and I haven't felt that relaxed in ages. We're heading back there in about a month and I can hardly wait.  Also, it seems that if you go on vacation on a Sunday and return to work on Thursday, the week FLIES.

We're already in the middle of the 14th week (13w4d) and we had another OB appointment yesterday. We heard the heartbeat again, and of course I cried. We also found out two interesting things: We will have our anatomy scan (aka: the search for privates) in the next month or so, and I will be participating in a 24-hour urine collection to gather baseline information about kidney function. I am excited about one of these; let's see if you can guess which one.

Also important, we are no longer comparing the kitten to produce -- this week, (s)he is the size of a clenched fist.  I've begun to feel something that I assume is the beginnings of quickening.  Nothing like a jab, but kind of like when your eye twitches, only relocated into your uterus.  It's early to feel anything according to the interwebs, but just try to convince me that I'm mistaken.  I've got a few clenched fists that will tell you otherwise.  :)


  1. congrats on the good appointment (and on making out of the produce aisle)! how exciting that your next u/s will be the big gender reveal! :)

  2. Yay! Can't wait to hear the u/s results soon!
