Thanks Ladies

Hi guys, thanks for all of your comments. I really appreciate it. I think I was just having one of those days. I'll be back soon, probably later this week or next.

Still thinking of you all, hoping for BFPs for you cycling this month. Also hoping the preggos out there and the new mommies are doing well too.

OK sounds good to me

Well ladies none of you were interested in my giveaway so it's gone now. Oh well. Now I can just return it with the rest of the stuff.

Hope everyone is well. Going to take a break from blogging for awhile. Just kind of annoyed and not really feeling it.

Finally A Giveaway!

Happy Monday all. It's dreary here today. It's been cloudy and or rainy since Friday here. Boooo.

Things are well. The baby seems to be doing ok. My doctor appointment last week was just an ultrasound and the bloodwork for the Downs test. I just love seeing that little beating heart! The tech said everything seemed ok but I wanted the doctor to call me (I hate waiting to talk to him, it can be up to an hour sometimes). So he calls Tuesday in his suburban office, not the office I go to and I am not even home so he talks to J. J tells him, she wants to know how the ultrasound was and has some questions on whether or not her restrictions can be lifted (mainly, the no sex one) so he tells him he doesn't have my chart (well duh, you are at the other office) so he will call tomorrow. Well he didn't call at all, I left another message on Friday and he still has not called as of today. ANNOYING. So I'm waiting to call on Wednesday when he is in the office I see him in which I am hoping by then too they will have the Downs blood test results so I can have one call with him  finding out about the ultrasound, bloodwork and restrictions killing three birds one stone.

I'd like to start working out again and I would like to know if I can. And I am still taking the baby aspirin which I think at this point I shouldn't have to according to my first appointment with him. And I don't know, have sex with my husband before I get to a point in this pregnancy where I may not want to!!! I just hate when doctor's do not get back to you. Especially because I think I am not stalking him and have been pretty laid back during all of this.

I'm 12.5 weeks so I am feeling really happy about going into trimester 2. The tiredness seems to be lifting. This past weekend (mainly yesterday) was the only day I felt so nauseous through this whole thing. I thought I was going to throw up. On and off all day. But no complaints here. A very small price to pay when I have had zero morning sickness.  And I think my nose is growing from the hormones already. My sister's nose grew a ton during her pregnancies too so I'm ready for mine to take up all of my face by the birth.

And announcing My First Giveaway! I have finally reached 50+ followers so it's time. It will run for a week. You can enter by clicking on the tab at the top of my blog called Current Giveaways. I used Rafflecopter (thanks Emily @ a blanket 2 keep) so I hope it works.

I'm sure you are now wondering "Well, what are you giving away?" I was at Charming Charlies this weekend looking for some jewelry for a wedding this weekend. The dress I am wearing is blue (ocean is the color to be exact) so I bought some coral and gold accessories as a fun Spring pop o' color. Anyhow, I ended up buying a few choices so I decided to give away one of the earrings and bracelets I picked out.

The nice thing about the earrings, is you can loop up the chain through the posts to make them shorter.

So what do you have to do?

First, be a follower of my blog! Please write in the comments on the giveaway what your screen name is. (And feel free to post on your blog if you would like, I love new followers!)

Second, answer the question. I began watching The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet on Lifetime. Basically this interview show, with celebrity women talking about all sorts of women's topics (life, love, career, kids, you get the point). Anyhow at the end she always asks "What is you favorite sexual position?" (THIS IS NOT THE QUESTION I AM ASKING) and another question which is included in the giveaway.

Good Luck! I'll announce the winner next Tuesday. Let me know if something is not working.

Second Award

I should have posted this last week but I got another blog award!

I received this from the lovely mum over at Adrift on a dandelion breeze so thank you! I'm now officially at 50 followers so I will be posting for my giveaway (finally) later this week but in the meantime, here are the rules of this award:

1. Share who gave you this award with a link back to their blog (check - see above)
2. Write down 7 random facts about yourself
3. Give this award to 15 others
4. Let them know they have an award
5. Pop the award on your blog

Seven random facts about me:

1) I love cooking and entertaining.  I have only had a few get togethers in this apartment in the last 12 years I have lived here due to the small space but hope once we have a house, I'll do it more regularly.
2) If money was no object, I would travel the world.
3) I love game apps on my iPhone. Very addicting.
4) I wish I was a more consistent reader (of books). I go in spurts. I'll read 3 books then none for a month or two. 
5) I could never live in the country. It would be a nice place to visit but I could not stay. I'm a city girl through and through.
6) Marshmallows and coconut flavoring in savory foods, grosses me out. 

Totally boring, I know.

Now who to give the award too. To all the ladies at these blogs:
