Today is the day I have been waiting for since my graduation from the RE, for longer really but for the last few weeks, today the last day of June, has consumed my thoughts. Because it isn’t just the last day of June it is also the very last day of the first trimester!
My week in review: EXCELLENT. My panic attacks decreased this weekend and I went three days without one. That is great news. I love my doppler and it should receive all the credit for my new upbeat attitude. Because of it I felt confident to not only tell my grandparents (father’s side) that I am pg but also some family friends (father’s side again). For those of you wondering if this means my dad knows, well I don’t know. I haven’t told him but I am sure my grandparents will, I have decided not to care if he knows. Tomorrow my mom and I will call her mom and tell her too. I can’t wait to do this! I am really excited about it. Partly because if we are having a girl then the baby will receive Grandma’s middle name as her middle name. R has yet to set up dinner plans with his dad to tell him, which is fine. I kinda want to get it over with or decide not to tell for a while. I don’t like the fear this whole unknown gives me but I am dealing with it by ignoring the issue.
The baby this week is the size of a peach or a shrimp. It is funny when I think of these two foods they seem remarkably different in size. So I bought one of each, and they are quite similar in size. Baby’s organs and veins are visible through the skin and if the baby is a girl she now has ALL her eggs for reproducing. I hope they are of good quality and she has good fertility like her auntie and grandma. Genitalia have also formed so an ultrasound might reveal the gender!
And since it has been weeks since you saw some fun pics here is a brand new belly pic and some baby related pics too.

Issabella (my princess) in the Baby Katan I bought with Shannon on Sunday:
In case you are wondering both girls are NOT declawed and while they do let me occasionally love them, give affection and kisses, getting them into the sling/carriers was not easy. However it did prove to me that I could put a wiggly infant in each by myself.
