My weekend went by fast! I kept my schedule open because I wanted to relax and catch up on sleep, but what I ended up doing was the opposite. I managed to get more done over this weekend than I've probably done over a week since before our wedding. It felt good to be busy! I'm hoping that as I get acclimated to my school/work schedule, I'll exhaust myself to sleep better through the night. The lack of sleep has not been fun.
I attended my first prenatal yoga class at Villager Yoga on Saturday morning. I ran 4 miles on our treadmill before class, so I already released a lot my energy AND I knew I'd get a good stretch. The girls in my class ranged from 9 weeks to 38 weeks, if I remember correctly. Everyone looked so healthy and happy, I hope that I can keep up through my whole pregnancy! The class meets Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings, so it's perfect for me and a treat to look forward to twice a week.
Thursday, August 15, was our second appointment with Doctor Hoover at UAB. While the appointment was still long (1.5 hrs), we didn't have as long of a wait in the lobby as we did last time. We were very excited when Nikesha, one of the nurses, asked if we were ready to hear the heartbeat. I asked David to record it for me, so he used his film option on his iPhone, but he only filmed the side of the bed. I have played back the sound of the heartbeat only a half a dozen times since we were there yesterday.
If we film again during out appointments, I told D that I'm ok with with him filming me...as long as I'm not disrobed completely!
We are so excited to announce that we are expecting a little one in February 2014. It's still hard to believe. I love how excited David is in this picture :)
What an exciting weekend I have had! My 30th birthday was on Friday and it was a fun filled day. After David left for work, I had a wonderful run with my sweet & energetic Azaria.
