Graduation Day

Went in for our second sonogram and final beta draw this morning. Everything is progressing nicely, and we saw a heartbeat! I swear that was the most amazing thing I've ever seen. The RE printed out two copies of the sonogram (one for me and one for the Barron) and said, "this is your graduation certificate", meaning I'm done there. And, believe it or not, I have mixed emotions.

Don't get me wrong, it's wonderful to get released to my normal OB/GYN, but I have to say I'm going to miss those folks at the clinic. I have had nothing but a good experience with these people. Everyone (well, except for the receptionist) treated me with the utmost care and respect, and had the best possible bedside manner you could ask for. I have nothing bad to say about them and would recommend them to anyone on the East Coast.

After that, I came home and ate an entire bowl of macaroni and cheese. I'm having the weirdest cravings lately. It's not just one thing though - they come and go. All I know is, a mood will hit and I'll have to have whatever it is IMMEDIATELY. I'm trying to keep everything as healthy as possible, but sometimes I slip...hence the Mac & Cheese.

Official due date: December 19, 2008

My cravings are soooo out there. All I've been wanting is red apples and tomato juice...at the same time! I'm not dunking or anything, but I eat apples while drinking tomato juice...weird!! Anyway, Congrats grad! My RE is releasing me after my 1st sonogram. I will cry!!

Hot damn! That is some exciting news. All of it--heartbeat, graduation, mac 'n' cheese--everything. I'm beyond excited for you. How's the morning sickness coming along?

Congratulations, Sully! I think that a bowl of mac & cheese (or three or four) is well-deserved!
