What's with the blog name? Our last name is Sinks. My manager asked me one day when we'd have a little faucet. It stuck.
How far along? 9 weeks!
What's on the canvas? I love to knit so the inspiration for this week's canvas was yarn. It's a chunky yarn I used for a cowl neck scarf that I made last fall.
Weight gain: Started at 125 and weighed in at the doctor's office on Wednesday at 126.2.
Best moments this week:
*Heard the heart beat on Wednesday's nurse appointment. She wasn't planning on checking for it but I was close to ten weeks along. Sure enough, there it was! Her first response: "It's a girl." Heart beat was at 184 and the wives' tale is that the fast heart beats are for girls. We'll see; we might just have an athletic one in there.
*Friday night I told a close girlfriend about the pregnancy. Huge smiles and big hugs.
Miss anything? Wine! Friday night BBQ with friends and nice warm weather is the perfect setting for a nice chilled glass of wine. Had to settle for a very large dessert instead.
Movement: Nothing yet but the idea is exciting.
Pregnancy symptoms: Can't complain - no morning sickness, no more cramping, and sleep has been pretty solid. Still feeling like a blotation device and my gums have been swollen in one area. Such an odd pregnancy symptom.
Mood this week: Happy!
