Common questions and answers

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all of your comments yesterday on my post and on Instagram! Mr.D and I are so excited and I'm happy that I can finally talk about it in the open now!

I apologize as this week of posts is going to be baby related, but next week should be back to normal. I thought I would answer a few of the common questions today.

When am I due?
  • January 20, 2015, so I am 14 weeks along as of today
Will we find out what we are having?
  • Yes, as long as the baby cooperates. I always said that I wouldn't find out until the birth, but I'm too much of a planner not to find out
How am I feeling?
  • I will not complain because I got away with minimal morning sickness and no puking. I was nauseous for a few weeks, but it thankfully passed. I have just been tired, hungry all the time and have been getting lots of headaches lately. Otherwise, good :)
Is your family excited?
  • definitely! Both of our families have known since I was about six weeks along (it just happened  I was going to be in Ontario then and wanted to tell my family in person)
How did you find out?
  • before I tell you the full story, I want to say that Mr.D and I were extremely lucky and were able to conceive right away (even sooner than we might have expected) and my heart goes out to those that are still trying to conceive
  • on Wednesday May 7th, I had gone in for routine blood work in preparation for us to start trying for a family. The next day, my doctor's office called and asked me to come in. I went in the following Tuesday and my doctor said that there was a chance that I was very early pregnant (there was HGC in my blood) or would have a miscarriage shortly. He sent me for more blood work, which I did right after I left the doctor's office.  My doctor called at 5pm that night to tell me that my HGC levels had significantly increased and I was definitely pregnant! I had a sneaking suspicion that I was, but it was still a bit of a surprise (a good one of course!)
Have you had an ultrasound?
  • yes. We chose to do the first trimester combined screening, which means that we were able to have an ultrasound during my 12th week {you otherwise don't have an ultrasound until 18 weeks in Alberta}. It was a relief to know that everything looked good with baby and also so cool to see! We also got to hear the heart beat the day before at the maternity clinic, which was amazing. Nothing beats that!
Okay, I'll be back to tomorrow to catch up on my weekly updates :)

Future plans

Mr.D and I have talked a lot about our future plans lately. Should we take a road trip this summer, should we move, should we buy a new car, etc? The one thing that I know for sure is that we know what we are doing in January 2015:

More information coming this week :)

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! It was a gorgeous weekend here, so no complaining from me.

{friday} Mr.D and I went to The Chopped Leaf to try it out for dinner....it was surprisingly pretty good! After dinner, we took Harley for a short walk and then hung out watching tv. Oh and Mr.D surprised me with this:

I had been complaining forever about my old one (it kept messing up on me), so he bought me a new one to stop my complaining ;)

{saturday} Mr.D left to go biking with some friends, so it was just Harley and I for Saturday and Sunday. I took Harley for a short run in the morning before it got too hot out. After our run, I headed out to meet up with a friend for brunch at oeb. It was crazy busy there! We ended up having to wait over an hour, but it was so worth it. The rest of the day was spent making a quick stop at the mall, watching a movie, painting my nails and just enjoying the night.

{sunday} in the morning, I took Harley for a long walk before it got too hot out. The rest of the day was spent mowing the lawn, throwing the ball for Harley, enjoying the sunshine and getting groceries.

A pretty quiet, but relaxing weekend!

Tell me: how was your weekend?

Getting to know you

I was searching Pinterest last night for some post ideas and came across a set of questions that would be fun to get to know my readers better {original set of questions found here}. So answer one, three, none or all...I'd love to hear your answers!

1. what is a weird habit of yours?
2. do you have any weird phobias?
3. what side of the bed do you sleep on?
4. which way do you face in the shower?
5. left eye or right eye first when you are putting on mascara?
6. do you have any weird body skills?
7. what did you used to wear that you thought was cool, but now you realize it wasn't?

Let's hear your answers!

Scenes from the weekend

Happy Monday everyone! It was a gorgeous weekend here. Let's see what we were up to:

{friday} I took Harley for a walk, had dinner and then we went to McDonald's for an ice cream cone. They have such good ice cream!

{saturday} Mr.D was up early and went for a bike ride, so I took Harley for a walk in the morning. Around lunch, we went to Costco to meet up with my co-worker to buy supplies for the Stampede BBQ my work is putting on. Once everything was bought, we made a quick trip to my office to unload everything. The rest of the afternoon was spent hanging out in the sun reading. Later that night, we headed to The Keg for dinner. They sent my steak out very overdone for my liking, so they quickly replaced it. They also took my meal off the bill which was super nice! After dinner, we took a short walk along the Bow River. It was a gorgeous night out and couldn't pass up the weather!

{sunday} in the morning, Mr.D went biking again with Justin, so Alison, Delainey and I went to the Bearspaw market. It ended up being a beautiful morning out! We both picked up some yummy veggies. After the market, I took Harley for a walk and stopped at my friend Erica's house. She recently moved back into our neighbourhood, so it was great to catch up with her and see her new place. 

A perfect, yet oddly busy weekend.
