Alysha found an old BANANA CLIP in my bathroom and wanted to try it out. She went to her bathroom and came out looking like this
I laughed and told her that something was wrong. When I looked closer I realized what she had done.
She put it in upside down. :) Too funny. So much for 80's hairstyles...... I never liked banana clips.

Now, a funny story. Mom, Alysha and I went to Target yesterday to look at baby stuff. It was lots of fun to see all the stuff you can buy for baby. Anyway, we were leaving and this "woman" walks in with a short skirt and high heels on. I knew at first glance this was not a woman. My mother on the other hand, did not get it. First she says, "can her high heels get any higher?" I start to laugh and she says "that is the ugliest woman I have ever seen." I am rolling now and I inform her that is NO Woman. She stops dead in her tracks and stares at this man. Alysha and I keep on walking and head out of the store and my mom stands there and openly gapes at this guy as he walks by. lol. Alysha, of course, has lots of questions for me about why this would occur. I do not have any really good answers for these questions, this is not something you prepare for, ya know? I told my mom how rude it was to stare like that and her response was "If you are going to dress like that and go out in public, then you should expect people to stare at you." I do not agree with this philosophy, but she is old and can do what she wants to. haha. Needless to say, it made for great conversation for the ride home.

I have been pouring over baby name books this week also. The first question people always seem to ask me is, "Do you have any names yet?" It is still early for that question I think, but I decided to go ahead and get started. I have made the mistake of finding a few names I like and telling people those names. Oddly enough, people like to tell you how much they don't like that name. So, I have sworn my family to secrecy from this point on. I will not reveal the names I am throwing around so no one can tell me how ugly they think it is. lol.
There is one name that is already decided if we have a boy. His middle name will be David. It is a family name on Jon's side. I pretty much got no say so in this name. I do not like the name David, personally, but that will be his middle name. I told my hubby that the first name is all mine. He can only veto if he absolutely hates it, and even then, I can override. He was not to pleased with that. haha. Only seems fair to me! After all, I am doing all the work..........

So, this is what life has been reduced too. My day consists of sitting or laying on the couch while Alysha waits on me hand and foot. (well, maybe not that much). In the past week I have not been on my treadmill as much, I just have lost my energy even more, if that is possible. I do not have the energy to DO anything, but sit. I hope I have not gained 100 pounds just being sooooo lazy.

Then it was time for the ultrasound. I asked permission for the doctor to allow alysha to come in there, and they did not care. She really wanted to come and see it! It was so awesome! He had state of the art technology (his words). There was the BIG flat screen TV on the wall that he put the ultrasound on. So, Jon and Alysha and I watched the ultrasound on the BIG TV! I know I say this alot, but it was so different from the first time around. The baby was really active and he/she was moving around and flailing his/her little arms around. The doctor told Jon, "Dad, he's waving at you". haha. It was really the coolest thing. The doctor said that the babies at this stage usually sleep more often than not and we were lucky to catch him moving soooo much. He looked like a little peanut with arms and legs. He was able to show us the legs, arms, mouth and even the eyes! He was even able to give a 3 dimensional view. My uterus was tilted, so the doctor was having to really push down with the ultrasound thing. Needless to say, it hurt. He apologized, but man it did not feel good. Of course, totally worth it. haha. I think the neatest thing was watching Jon and Alysha. They were in awe. It was really awesome to experience it all together as a family. There is a real live wiggling baby in my tummy!!
The doctor measured the baby and put me back a week. He said I am not as far along as we thought. So, I will just be ten weeks this week, instead of eleven. That was not good news to me. I really question this method of determining due date, I mean, what if it is just a smaller baby? But, my new due date is May 2. It does not matter anyway, that baby is gonna arrive when he gets ready. I got on the scale yesterday and I had lost two pounds since my last appointment! The doctor told me not to get too excited, that it would start going the other way very soon. haha. I was surprised, though, because I have not thrown up any at all. I eat alot. I am still working out once or twice a day though. So, I am trying to stay healthy. I still think it is totally cool I lost two pounds, I don't care what that doctor says. lol.
This was the first time I had met this doctor, he is my primary ob/gyn. I liked him. He was young, but his hair was salt and pepper gray, which made him look older. He has a really soft voice and good bedside manner.
