I'm thankful for lots and lots of things....but I'll keep the list as short as can be.
I'm so very thankful for ultrasounds and (hopefully) wiggly, moving, AWAKE babies who will flash a peek of their bits so we can get a good look tomorrow. [When I say "babies" I mean "baby". There is only one. Promise.]
I'm thankful that Baby B keeps me on my toes. Yesterday, at my OB checkup...it took a solid 3 minutes to pickup the heartbeat on the doppler. I was sweating a little, in fear, I must admit. But, she said the baby was just tucked up in a weird position behind my belly button. Finally, we heard that wonderful wooshing sound.
I'm thankful for middle of the week date nights, and not cooking.
I'm thankful for Christmas presents that were ordered online, showing up in time.
I'm so thankful for heat. I honestly am one of those people who has the heat up pretty high, because I want to be comfortable while I'm home. I love walking into a warm house. I'm so very thankful for it.
I'm thankful for my camera. I'm not a photographer, but I do love to document [duh. I blog.] So, it's been really fun having little photo-sessions with myself (and baby)...because I KNOW I will really appreciate these pictures later.
I'm thankful that no matter if I have a "fat" day (which, dear lord...there are many more to come I fear...), I know that ultimately, this belly is resulting in the greatest gift for our little family.
I'm grateful for really cool nurses at the doctors office, who say really nice things (no matter how [un]true they are) as I'm stepping on the scale to get weighed: "It doesn't matter how much weight you've gained, you still look good in your jeans!"
What a good, good, lady she is.
[For the curious ones out there...no weight gain yet as of yesterday. I'm right where I started this pregnancy out at. I lost two, gained back one, and now am back to where I've started. Although, I'm told to expect a "boom" next time in my weight. Lovely. Can't. Wait.]
I'm thankful that this week somehow, someway moved much faster then I anticipated.
I'm thankful that on FRIDAY there should be a big.gender.reveal! woohoo! :)
[According to the poll....the majority are saying girl, but not by much. Make sure to vote.]
Happy, happy, happy Thursday. I know I'm smiling.
