First Prenatal Appointment & Frito Pie

I know - 2 posts in 2 days...what is the world coming to? :)

We got to see the baby again last night...he/she was beautiful! We got to see the flickering heart beat again which was just amazing. I will never get tired of seeing my baby's heart beating. I am a little spoiled because I was able to see the baby at my last u/s with a really high resolution u/s machine. This machine was just the portable one so it wasn't clear at all. I might post the picture of the baby later, but I don't have it on me here at work.

D and I waited almost 20 minutes after my appointment was scheduled (we got there about 10 minutes before my appointment - so 30 min total waiting time) before I was called back. It's nice to have afternoon appointments, but usually they're pretty backed up by then so you have to wait. Anyway, I was weighed (lost some, but I have it to lose), made a liquid contribution, then went back and waited for the doctor. She came in, introduced herself, then started a rundown of my history. She was very personable and knowledgable. She told us right away that she was on call and that there's a woman in labor right now about to give birth to her 5th child, so if she gets called out then she apologizes but that's why. So, sure enough about 10 minutes into our talk she was called out. The nurse came in and told us it could be 45 min to 1 hour and we could either reschedule or we could wait in that room. D and I chose to wait. I figured since it's her 5th child she probably won't push for very long, and the hospital was literally a couple of blocks away. I was right - the doctor came back after 42 minutes (D happened to look at the time) and we proceeded. The doctor told us that I'm actually due on July 2nd, not the 3rd. I need to change my ticker.

We had Frito Pie for dinner. Beans of some sort sounded good and Fritos sounded REALLY good, so that's what we ate. If you don't know what a Frito Pie is, it's Fritos, then you put chili on top of the Fritos (we use the Nalley "hot" chili), then you can put jalepenos and cheese on top of that, and then once that's all melted and hot (microwave) my Dad taught me to put mustard on it. It sounds gross, but it's SO GOOD. I even got D hooked! I can't remember the last time I made a good, rounded meal. I'm ashamed to admit that, but it's true. I'm very blessed to have an easy-going husband.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I know we have a lot to be thankful for.

Sidenote:
David's credit card number was stolen and used in the amount of $1200 at Kaplan College. The good news is that the bank is taking care of the charge. The bad news is that they put a stop on the credit card and we won't have a new one for 7-10 business days which means we can't rack up miles by charging our BLack Friday purchases. Bummer.

So exciting! You'll get to buy him/her a sweet little red, white, & blue NB outfit!

And wow...a thief spending money at a college. Bettering their education all while doing damage to their character. Great combo!

Congrats on a healthy ultrasound! I'm done having my babies, but I will miss forever, those precious moments in the dark ultrasound room when I could SEE them inside my body. Mind Blowing.

Sorry to hear about the CC damage, but Praise God the charge is covered!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Blessings, Whitney
