Happy Anniversary

Two years ago today, I married the most wonderful man. We got married in Santa Barbara, California and we were very fortunate that 100 of our friends and family took the time out to help us celebrate this very special day. I am very fortunate to find a man who loves me unconditionally and treats me with the utmost kindness and respect. I didn't think that I can love him more and more everyday, but I do.

So today, we went out to a nice brunch and I after brunch I headed off to church. I got home and discovered a dozen roses sitting on our dining room table. They are beautiful!! We are going out to an Italian restaurant for dinner--we were in Italy last year celebrating our 1st year anniversary and I think S wants to reminisce so he insisted on going to an Italian restaurant.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

So I am still here...looking bloated instead of looking p. Nothing fits me correctly--my own clothes are too small and maternity clothes are not fitting correctly. I seriously look like I've eaten a big bag of potato chips and drank a gallon of water after! A part of me just wants to look p so that people stop looking at me funny.

I experienced a new p symptom this last week--calf muscle spasms!! OMG it HURTS!!! It happens at night when I am sleeping and all of a sudden I feel this sudden pain and all I can do is scream and it scares S off! I've had calf muscle spasms before, but it doesn't happen every other day!! I guess this is pretty normal and there is really not much you can do about it. Some books suggest to stretch during the day, use a heating pad, massaging the calf or increase your calcium intake and reduce food that contain phosphorus (lunch meat, carbonated drinks)--there's been suggestions that the spasms could be due to the imbalance of calcium and phoshorus in your body. I also read that if it is severe and regular bring it up to you doctor. I wonder what constitute "severe and regular"?

Today, I am 16 weeks 4 days and feeling pretty good.

15 weeks, doctor's appointment, tripping myself....

Today we crossed the 15 weeks mark! Woo-hoo! I am still feeling like my food is stuck up my once in a while some puking is going on. I went to see the doctor yesterday, it wasn't Dr. Shut eyes(I don't think I officially named her, but I am now...remember she is the one who keeps closing her eyes when she talks). She was on call so I saw one of her partners. He was really nice, we will call him Dr. Loverman (this is because I found out that my co-worker sees the same guy and she is so in love with him--to the point that she is switching doctors!). Anyway, Dr. Loverman said that it is normal to feel like my food is stuck in my throat because my entire digestive system is slowing down. He suggested taking vitamin B6 or ginger tablets. I think I might check this out. My only other option is not too eat too much, which I am a little worried about since I've only gain 1 1/2 pds since I got P. Dr. Loverman said this is not a S said I shouldn't worry about it. Although, I still don't like the feeling of food being stuck up my throat.

So, last Sunday, S and I attended a Simchat Bat--which is a baby naming ceremony for our friends new born baby. That was really fun--I've never been to one before so I was really excited to go. Anyway, on our way to the ceremony/party, S and I decided to walk, instead of taking a cab. It was a beautiful day and it was less than a mile so walking wasn't a big deal. Until of course I trip myself stepping on a crack, fell on my butt and scraped my knee really badly!!! At first my first concern was the baby...and I wanted to turn around, call my doctor and demand an u/s. We all know that this is a little over the edge...lots of p women trip or fall and they are okay. S tried to convince me that everything is okay and he reminded me that his mom got into a major accident when she was p with him and look at him he is perfectly fine. So I calmed down and we continued our trek to the Simchat Bat. Of course I was still really worried about it the entire time, especially after seeing how my scrape was getting really red looking like it was infected! But, that was not the case, the wound was just healing and everything is fine--no infection and baby is fine.

So here I am...15 weeks, 25 more to go--things are good.
