Kylie came up to me about an hour ago, lifted up my shirt, pinched my fat roll (but that's totally beside the point), kissed my tummy and said, "I luh you Mommy's Baby."

There is a black cloud hovering over us today. I couldn't sleep last night and had an anxiety attack this morning. Why? Because this is Zach's last day at his job, he is moving on to tackle business ownership in the roof and floor truss industry. The main reason I care that he is leaving his current job is that he works for one of his best friends, who's wife is one of my best friends. I guess I'm worried it will effect our friendship, which we all swore it wouldn't, but it still gives me anxiety.

I would like to announce, although some may think I am crazy or just ate too many refried beans (not the case, at least not the beans), that I have indeed felt the baby move.

I am not on the tankini/one piece train. How is it that tankinis look worse than 2 pieces on me?They accentuate all the worst areas and turn me into an instafrump. I tried on a few today and all of them looked about the same and all of them made me look lumpy. So I am not retiring my bikinis for the summer quite yet. The only time I have actually looked good in tankini was when I was pregnant with Blake and huge and there were frankly no other options a month before delivering a baby. I'm really not in a swim suit enough to even care, but if you see me and my belly is out, trust me, it's better than the tankini alternative.

When I went to my first prenatal appointment I was pretty sure I was 8 weeks along. I still have no idea which day I ovulated or how the heck I even got pregnant the month I did because it just doesn't add up to me. Which of course makes me nervous that something may go terribly wrong, but it really doesn't cross my mind that often, especially with how yuck I have been feeling. When I look at the calendar and compare my notes to the baby's due date and when I got the positive test, it seems that either the baby implanted super late or I was horribly off with my calculations. Either way, it makes me nervous about a miscarriage which I have never had, but clearly would not like to experience.

I'm going with not. I did my little Lora Jensen's 3 day potty training method this morning, it's only 10:42, so we have been at it for about 3 hours and I already feel like it's not good timing. Kylie seems so ready mentally, but she is dribbling little pee drips everywhere and not having much bladder control at all. I think if I hold off another 4 or 5 months we will get it done much more quickly and easily. Blake was 2 years 9 months and she really was ready on all fronts. So much for that idea. I do have to get her trained before this other baby arrives though.

Here is our critter. 1.45 cm long. I forgot to ask what the heart rate was, but they said it was good and strong. I'm almost glad I don't know because Blake and Kylie's were both 164 at the first appointment. If it was one sixty something I would assume it's another girl. I am up a few lbs at 123 and although I am getting irritated by the plump little roll quickly developing on my tummy, I am way too hungry and picky to change my eating ways right now. That can come in the second trimester.

This week is pretty exciting! I have 3 newborn sessions. Nothing will give you a case of baby fever like photographing them for 3 hours straight. Yes, my newborn sessions take about 3 hours, the longest and most strenuous of all of the sessions I do and probably one of my favorites. Besides newborn work, I really love pin up and boudoir, pretty much straight up opposites.

I'm 8 weeks and the only way to control my tiny bump is by majorly sucking in and standing up straight and tall. And by the end of the day, that is a tall order. I didn't get out of my pjs until about 4:00 today. I was hit with the no energy stick. I have only been able to work about 2 or 3 hours a day, which is not very much. I am used to working like 6 or 8 hours most days. I didn't think I would be one of those moms that wanted to read up on my pregnancy this third time. But I am loving reading up! I have Your Pregnancy Week by Week and Great Expectations on my nook. I think I am just really excited to be pregnant since we tried for a while and since I know it is my last one.

My thoughts are absolutely controlled by food and cravings right now. I'm basically starving every hour or 2 and the only thing that will make me feel better is my craving du jour. Yesterday I drove about 15 minutes to get boston market for myself. Boston Market ALWAYS makes it's way into my pregnancy must haves. I mean, that mac and cheese, too good to be true. Other recent cravings, coke slurpees, cheese enchiladas with queso and this is the weirdest one, Mr. Pibb. Specifically Mr. Pibb on tap, which I haven't gotten to delight myself in yet. Allison said it's on tap at Chipotle so I will likely make my way there in the next day or two. As much as I want to stay slim, it's just probably not happening. At least not this trimester.

Let the cravings and dry heaving begin, and a couple of other unpleasant symptoms that I prefer to not get into. Per my sketchy calculations I am 7 weeks tomorrow and the past 2 days have been wretched.
