Shooting it up in the desert.

shove it in and twist

For the second time this week, I had some stranger shove some unnatural tool up my tunnel. This time, it was painful. I went to have my ultrasound this morning, and it was so cool! Everyone always says the jelly they put on your stomach is super cold but whatever they put on me was actually really hot. After a few minutes of her looking around on the surface, she decided to go under the sea, where she then pulls out this tool that looked like it was 2 feet long, told me it was going to be a little cold and then just shoved it in there, with no warning whatsoever! And then she started twisting it around as if she was trying to make butter or dig something out of me. I was afraid that thing was going to get lodged in my ribs it felt so high in there! She showed us the sac the baby sits in and it looked like a black hole. When we saw that there was no child in there we thought that maybe it got sucked into the black hole never to return again.  But no, it was there. It's just the size of a poppyseed so we couldn't see it.  Which means I'm about 4 weeks and 5 days along. Way off from the 8 weeks we thought I was! (remember the period  mishaps?). But that's ok I am still so excited about it! And hopefully I won't have to have any other odd object shoved up me for awhile because I'm still walking like I just rode a horse.

shove it in and crank

Yesterday I went to my first doctor's appointment and guess what? I didn't dream it, I really am pregnant.  I was super nervous at first because I knew they were going to have to do a (in the proper way) "well woman exam", which I have never had before! I heard so many things like "take tylenol before you go!" and "it hurts so bad just try not to think about it", and my personal favorite "once you get past the thought that they just shove it in and crank you'll be just fine".  Let me tell you this much, people are babies because that was not that bad at all (even though my mom held my hand!).  I am also super excited because I get to have my first ultrasound tomorrow to find a more accurate due date because they weren't really sure how far a long I was.  They said that all we'll most likely see is a circle with a dot in the middle but I'm still excited to see our little embryo! Even though its possibly the size of a pea, it feels like an orange in there, especially when I sleep.  But right now my new craving is bagels. Bagels. Bagels. Bagels.  All I want is bagels. And more string cheese for me please. Hopefully we'll be able to tell how far a long I am tomorrow, and then we'll keep you guys posted.  Hope you're enjoying your Wednesday!

Remember back on April Fool's how we played a trick on my family that we were pregnant? Well last Wednesday we did it again....but for real this time!! That's right, we really are pregnant! To prove it to you, here's my pee stick:
We had to show that to both our family and our friends until they finally believed us.  There's a little confusion as to how far along I am (period mishaps) and so the math says I'm a little over 7 weeks, but I don't think I'm quite that far along.  But I'll let you know as soon as I do! Of course Erik wants a boy, and I obviously want a girl, but it will be a while until we know.  Although I've already had a dream that it will be a boy but I don't know how accurate those are. Even though I haven't thrown up yet I feel like it every second of the day.  I had heartburn for the first time in my life the other day and I honestly thought I was going to die! But I feel as if I've gained like 20 pounds and I already tie a ponytail through my jeans because they are getting too small (but no baby bump yet!). All I want is chocolate milk, ravioli, spinach and artichoke dip, and cheese. It's crazy how excited we are! It was planned and we could not be more stoked! I'm due around the middle of December, but no date is for sure yet. Now I'll definitely have to keep up with the blog to give you updates of how Baby Payne is doing!
