Last Friday Ben and I got to hear our tiny baby's heartbeat and it was amazing.  I didn't cry, but I came really close.  This whole pregnancy feels way more real now.  Oh and baby's hearts beat way faster than ours, which is really neat.  It sounded like our little angel was running a marathon. So this week has been rough.  I had to call into work on Monday because I was feeling horrible.  I don't know if it was the flu shot that I got on Friday or...

I recently made Olive a really simple cat toy and she loves it.   Since it is her favorite toy ever, I decided to share a tutorial with you guys.  I know cats will play with almost anything, but at least this toy looks cuter than a toilet paper roll or plastic water bottle which are Olive's 2nd and 3rd favorite toys. Supplies Needed: Two Metal Book Rings Fabric scraps of all sizes 2-3 foot long piece of ribbon or string

This week hasn't been too bad.  Tuesday morning my morning sickness hit me by surprise but I took a Zofran and was feeling better by lunch.   This week my tiny baby is no longer called an embryo and is now a fetus.  The word fetus is weird, I don't like it.  Anyways, I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow and I am keeping my fingers crossed that we get to hear a tiny heartbeat! Pregnancy Stats Weeks Pregnant:  9 weeks and 4 days Size of my tiny baby:  A Prune (1.5  in. long) Weight:  119 lbs.  Total Gain:  4...

Link to Garden Update:  What a cute little cantaloupe!

This year our garden hasn't been the best.  I blame the heat really.  But this past Friday Ben and I picked two cantaloupes from our garden, which just so happen to be the only two it produced.  We were so thrilled that we immediately cut one of them open and ate it.  It was the best cantaloupe I have ever had, no joke.  There is something so gratifying about growing melons, probably because it takes so long for them to ripen.

Anyways, I hope everyone has...

This week has been good.  I have been mostly morning sickness free and I feel so much better.  Morning sickness can be kind of tricky so I'll tell you what worked and didn't work  for me. What helped: Waking up about 15 minutes early and eating in bed really helps me and I still do this.  Taking my time to eat and wake up is great.  I usually eat oatmeal or homemade muffins. Canada Dry Ginger Ale- It doesn't have to be this brand but it does have to be made with real ginger.
