This weekend was an extremely busy one, but great at the same time. We finished our major projects just in time and I put together a wonderful dinner to honor Michael's mom for Mother's Day and her birthday. It was so much fun getting out all the china and crystal and I think she really enjoyed it.
I was even honored on Mother's Day even though I am just a half-way mom at this point. Michael's mom brought me some beautiful garden roses. I love the white one with the light pink tips.
And my sister sent me these beautiful roses and some chocolates. It was such a surprise and of course this new emotional me cried. It was just so incredibly thoughtful of her. I called her as soon as I got them and she said she wanted to be the first to give me something for Mothers Day. A little bit of jealousy perhaps of my unborn child? I don't know but I love it lol.
Speaking of little Pistachio I am currently 19 weeks. Nothing too much has changed besides my growing stomach! I finally gained. As of my last appointment I'm up 5 pounds. My doctor recommended another vitamin supplement of Omega 3 to subside some of the itchy dry skin I was having as well as he gave me something for my increasing indigestion. I'm suppose to take it 30 minutes before a meal, but I'm not too huge on medication. I'd like to only take it as needed so really I take it only if I know I'm about to have a heavy meal. For now I only get indigestion every now and then, but I suspect it will pick up later on.
As for maternity wear...I'm still not really there yet. I have been looking for some capris (black and jean) to wear soon. I found out that you have to purchase quick when it came to maternity wear on the Old Navy site the hard way. I had found exactly what I wanted but during the hour I continued to search around on other sites they some how sold out of everything I wanted. Major disappointment. So the search continues...
