My new best friend

The toilet.

Had to take an unexpected trip to my doctor today. **Warning, this may be TMI for some of you, so don't say I didn't warn you**

Lately, my "potty breaks" have become more and more frequent...and I would complain to the other women at work about it and they would just tell me, "What used to be normal, isn't normal anymore, you're PREGNANT". So I just chalked it up to "being pregnant". Well, last night was the straw that broke the camel's back. Austin and I went to bed at 10, and I kid you not- I got up to "potty" EVERY-SINGLE-HOUR!!!! Until having to roll out of bed at 6 to get ready for work, ugh! Even with being a newbie with pregnancy, I knew, that CANNOT be right. So after going a few million more times at work, I decided, for my peace of mind, I would just pay a visit to my doctor. They so graciously fit me in and sure enough, I do have an UTI, but she said it was early on. RELIEF! I got my prescription this evening and I'm on my way to a better bladder! lol. Please pray it goes away quickly!!

Aside from all of that loveliness, it was a great excuse to get to hear our little one's heart beat for the first time with the doppler today! :) The doctor also went over my u/s from Tuesday and she said baby is growing wonderfully and everything looks great...Grow baby grow!

I have no "belly pics" to post as of yet, because I still have no belly. But I'm ok with that. There is PLENTY of time for me to grow one, lol.

Well, that is all the fun stories I have for tonite, going to spend some quality family time on the couch! :)

Hey now! I've been replaced by the toilet??!?! lol Not fair! And I didn't even get any credit for helping diagnose the UTI! :P

Glad you're feeling better!
