The weekend before school starts

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.

Preggo Diaries: Hearing the heartbeat for the first time!

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!

The Preggo Diaries I

So, it's officially out--I'm pregnant!  I am 13 weeks and looking forward to my second doctor's visit this Thursday!

Baby Alevy

 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 :)

I've hit the big 3-0! And more exciting news....:)

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.
