A momentous day!! I got to hear my baby’s heartbeat!!
I went for a walk midmorning while running errands. I love doing this – so efficient! I’m going on another shorter walk this afternoon. My goal is an hour of activity everyday. M/W/F is the gym and the rest of the week I do what I feel like doing. These days I’m loving going on long walks.
Here is me having a mini meal – a half cup of yogurt with blueberries and jam – after my walk. Should be a good mix of protein and carbs. [GO DUKE!]
When I went for my first prenatal appointment 2 weeks ago, I asked my doctor his opinion on when I should break the news to the blog world. Wait a few more weeks, after the 12 week ultrasound? I also told him I was dying to share the news. His suggestion was to come back 2 weeks later [today] and listen for a heartbeat through the Doppler. I ended up deciding to tell you all a few days earlier, but hearing the heartbeat was still reassuring for me to move forward with the baby blog.
Listening to that sound – gosh it was priceless. The most emotional moment yet. But I’ll save all the lovey dovey talk for this week’s post on BERF : )
Upon arriving back home, I made a quick quesadilla for lunch with some tortillas I bought at Whole Foods and leftover bean dip from the super bowl (still not gone!)
Also mashed inside was a nice sprinkling of sharp cheddar.
With Whole Foods Chipotle salsa (one of the only store bought salsas I have EVER liked thanks to minimal onion chunks) and a big pile of greek yogurt for dipping (and more protein!)
Grapes on the side! [Said to the tune of ‘pants on the ground’]
And Honest Tea to drink.
Im’ definitely feeling a bit better today with a better appetite for savory foods. Planning a snack around 3:30, a walk with Faith, a bakery bizness call and a spud-filled dinner with Hilary and LOST Season III!
