Update on the wee-one's a good update (but sorry, no pics of the little gummy bear). We had another doctors visit today and all is well. They didn't do a sonogram, but REALLY important right now. It was a good strong 186 beats per minute. They filled out more paperwork on e and even gave me reading material and a pre-registration form for when I had to be admitted to deliver. I know it's very early for that, but somehow all of that made it feel like even the doctors were saying that we're more 'out of the woods'. You know what I mean? I just feel like it's more real now and I can worry a little less. They did draw blood to recheck my hypothyroidism and all the usual preggo stuff, like peeing in a cup. Our next appointment is May 27th and I believe that day they're going to check the liver function, or something like that. I don't remember the name of it, but I have it written down. Next Sonogram is scheduled for somewhere around June 10th. I can't wait! Theres going to be so much ore to look at then. As it is, she told me today the fetus is about the size of a large lime. How weird is that!?!?

pics courtesy of Mom and Jessica

OK, here's a couple pictures. Mom took them a week ago and Jessica, my sister, just posted them on her blog. I know it's not much, but it's all I got for now.

I gotta say... My arms are huge!! The last pregnancy book I read kept talking about how when you're pregnant, you get this all over 'body cushion' of fat. Yeee-aaaahhhh.......starting to see what she's talking about. Starting to get a little tummy too, but for now, I just feel like I'm getting fat. Hips are definitely wider too, I must say. Probably didn't help that I got pregnant so soon after quitting smoking that I didn't have a chance to loose that weight that I had gained. Oh well. What'cha gunna do?

I know, I know...

I know I need to post pictures. I really want to post pictures. Really, I do. Here's the long, complicated story why I'm not as yet. Back in December, Mark and I had a birthday party for the 2 of us at our house. Well Mark was playing 'DJ' and had my laptop sitting on a stereo speaker by our front door. Well, he opened the front door without realizing that the CD drive was open. The door hit the CD drive, and now it won't open - it just makes this terrible clickyclickyclickyclickyclickyclicky noise. Well, that wouldn't be a big deal except right before that party, I reinstalled Windows on my computer. SO...I now can't reinstall the software for my digital camera on my computer. I also cant play CDs, reinstall the software for my MP3 player, burn CDs, play movies, and probably about 20 other things I can't do that escape me right this minute. It bites. I'm waiting for Mark to fix it, but I have to wait for it to make it to the top of his to-do list. Sorry Y'all!! Hopefully soon....

little updates

Well, the 'article' in Southern Living Magazine came out. I'm not happy about it at all. They had taken all of these pictures of at least 5 of my cakes, and what picture did they use? A picture of the Boll Weevil's Hoppin' Johns and a sandwich. They did briefly mention one of my cakes, but that's all. It wasn't worth all the hoopla at all. Totally crummy.
On a Different note, I am doing OK. No morning sickness unless I haven't eaten in a few hours, but other than that, I'm well. I am definitely getting larger, however. I saw my Mom yesterday, and she told me that I look 'very pregnant' and that 'by November, I'm going to be wider than I am tall'. How hilarious is that?!? Nothing like family to give you a dose of reality!

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in pretty much forever. Things have been crazy. I know, I know....When aren't they?
Keep an eye out for my cakes in next month's issue of Southern Living Magazine. Rumor is, The Boll Weevil and me and my cakes will be in it! Be on the look out!
And here's the other cool news (regarding work). Next week is Masters Week here in Augusta, and apparently one of the golfers is coming to the Boll Weevil for some of my PB pie. And, on Wednesday of Masters Week, a photographer from Paula Deen Magazine is coming to the Boll Weevil to take pictures of me, my cakes, the restaurant, and my bakery. Yay!!! Publicity for me!! I'm going to be famous someday! You-betcha!!
