Today my husband and I got to see the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. It was my second ultrasound and we saw a very clear picture of our baby. The teeny tiny heart was beating away and we could make out the head, arms and legs plain as day. The best part was watching the little peanut dance. I don’t mean move. I mean this kiddo was gettin’ down with its bad self! The nurse started singing the Ally McBeal theme song because that’s EXACTLY what it looked like. Everyone in the room was cracking up laughing and the doctor called a few other staff members in the room to watch. He told me to rest up because we’re going to have a mover and a shaker. I’ve been trying really hard not to worry and stress about the “what ifs” of being pregnant. This appointment was a huge reassurance because the doctor said that this baby is obviously developing well and the level of activity at this stage in the game is awesome.
Anyway. On to non-baby things. I’m still fighting this cold, but it’s improving. I left work early yesterday and called in today. Not much of an appetite hence the lack of photos today.
I’ve been craving egg salad for a few days so I decided to whip up a batch and make a sammie. My version had egg, a little bit of light mayo, little bit of dijon mustard, black pepper, paprika, teeny bit of cilantro and a teeny bit of parsley. It was perfect on toast with some American cheese and a pickle spear on the side. To drink, a bottle of Perrier.
It was nice to enjoy lunch at home, sitting at a real table with a candle and my gardening issue of Martha Stewart Living. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can start planting. I love flowers and we’re going to attempt an organic vegetable garden this year.
My snack was a classic favorite of mine, graham crackers and peanut butter dipped in a glass of cold organic skim milk.
I’m still feeling full and my husband isn’t hungry so probably no big dinner tonight.
Have a great weekend!
