We heard the little heartbeat racing away at 166 bpm. Kid must be running a race or something with those tiny legs. Ya know, it's a good thing I always have to pee because I had to give urine two separate times within an hour! One to test for bacteria and one for sugar/protein. The sugar/protein test was negative which is a good thing.
The doctor said in two months we should be able to see the baby and all the little limbs on a sonogram. We're not finding out what the baby is before it's born so we wont be looking to see that. It's going to be a surprise for everyone.
Today is eleven weeks and I haven't been sick yet although some smells make my stomach roll- cigarette smoke, vanilla scented trash bags and I don't eat jelly anymore. Maybe I can make it to the finish line without laughing at the carpet.

These days, when I pull into the driveway after work I'm already thinking about going to bed. Lately I've been getting home pretty close to bedtime. Last week one of our main workers transferred to Maryland and we have been super busy ever since. We're all working late and on our off days, I've worked eleven days in a row and have no idea when the last time my boss took a day off. It's always like that- short on help, but lots of business.
By 8:30 I barely have brain cells left to breathe on my own much less think and you can forget about house cleaning. I've been doing the absolute bare minimum: washing clothes when we run out of towels and underwear, loading and unloading the dishwasher when there's nothing clean and no room in the sink for more. Boots has been doing the major domestic work. He's cut the grass, folded clothes, starched his work uniform, vacuumed the floor, and even scrubbed the toilet one day last week! It's really nice having someone that let's you go to bed before 9 and doesn't care that you lay around on the couch more than you used to.
I've noticed that I'm weaker than I was before too. I can't lift the things I used to with as much ease as I once could. I don't know if it's because I'm so tired or what, but it certainly doesn't make work easier. Yesterday I fell over the leg of a tent we were trying to move and nearly wiped out in the cemetery.
Last night I dreamed the baby was born as triplets, two girls and a boy. Talk about exhausted.

Speaking of jelly, I just discovered a squeezable container of jelly (this kind) that spent the night in my purse and miraculously made it through unopened and didn't grease up everything inside! It's my lucky day, I tell ya!
My Egg-in-the-Hole recipe comes from my online "food mentor," Pioneer Woman. Check out the recipe here, you'll only need it once because this is one you can easily remember.

Check out my hunky lunch date to the Mellow Mushroom. I took these last week after we spent the entire morning at the baby doctor's office. I was sure I would starve to death so there are no pictures of our pretty pizza (medium size Mighty Meaty plus mushrooms and Roma tomatoes on my half). There were no leftovers.
