Sorry it's been so long since I've updated this! I'd use the excuse that I'm busy, but that's not really true. Lazy is more like it!
I'm not really sure if anyone is reading this or not, and if you are I assume you alread know the two biggest news items in my life right now. A) I'm 17 weeks pregnant with our first child. B.) Tommy just left last week for another deployment to Iraq. (I can't ebelive it's only been a week. It feels like a month already! Ugh.)
On the deployment front, Tommy is doing well. Technivally he's in the states (NM to be exact) for training right now and will see the sand sometime next month. I have my good days and bad days, but work keeps my mind off of the loneliness for now. Zeus is taking it harder this time than on previous deployments. Some nights he just stands by the front door and whines. Both dogs get SO excited when they see a man in BDUs (battle dress uniform - the brown and green camoflauge uniform Tommy usually wears to work.)
On the pregnancy front, it seems to being going well so far! We've heard the baby's heartbeat twice already and will have another ultrasound at the end of May, which will hopefully tell us the baby's sex! I'm feeling pretty good. I'm tired and sleep a lot, but my morning sickness is only about once or twice a week, so I can't really complain. I'm just starting to show, which is fun. In fact, today I'm weraing a maternity top and jeans!
Other than that, I'm doing well. Went to Cambridge today with a friend. W were hoping to hit Babys'R'Us, but they have closed it to remodel it into a Toys'R'Us, which is a little disappointing. But we did check out the mall, which helped to eas some homesickness! I bought a cute maternity top at Mothercare. Yay!
Still waiting to feel baby movements. I'll let you know when it happens!
Hey, if anyone is reading this, let me know! I'm just trying to decide if I'm giong to keep up with it or not. If it's only mom reading, I'll just call her with updates! Thanks! :)
