Other than work this week, let's see, what else is new? We brought my doggie into the vet today for his annual check-up. I always stock up on heartworm medicine and tick-preventing Frontline oil for the entire year (in hopes that we won't need to go back for anything serious prior to next year's appointment). On top of a couple of shots, his physical check-up, and a few other random charges, our bill was well over $300. Seriously, who knew dogs were this expensive to maintain from a health perspective? I am just lucky that mine is healthy, and for the most part, hasn't required other services.
We stopped at Babies 'R Us, and I think we've decided on the crib and dresser set we want. Yay! As soon as we close on the house - April 15 - it will go on order so that we can have it delivered to our new place. Exciting!
Here's my week run-down:
Best Moment of the Week: Wearing maternity jeans and really looking like I should be wearing them. I've been doing the rubber-binder trick for a few weeks, because it always cracks me up when women who are 6 or 8 or 12 weeks pregnant think that they need pregnancy clothes. Really... not needed. This week, I gave up on stretching my regular jeans with a rubber binder and threw on the new jeans with expandable waist. Wow, did they feel good. And, dang, are they needed.
Entertaining Question/Comment of the Week: Nothing memorable...
Obsessions: Wondering when I will first feel the baby. I definitely have a baby bump now, so wondering when I'll feel those first flutters. And, dying to know boy/girl. Only 2 more weeks until our ultrasound!
What I am Most Looking Forward to This Week: OB Appointment on Wednesday... I need a heartbeat fix!
What I Miss the Most: Wine. BUT... this week, I bought some Meier's Sparkling Grape Juice and put it in a wine glass. Although it's definitely not the same, it's kind of fun and sparkly tasting. It'll do :)
Symptoms: Tummy is slowly but surely growing...
:) Happy weekend, everyone!
