for the love of monday

why… you ask… do i love monday???
can anyone guess?????

24 is on tonight. i can’t wait.
and the cleaners come on monday. my house smells so good.

i had my first dr. appointment today! pretty exciting! i got to see my baby! it was so fun to see it with the ultra sound… how amazing… it’s funny how emotional that is-i was bawling my eyes out just seeing that little image wiggle around. i do think that if you wait 5 or more years in between having a baby, you revert back to first-time-mom status. (when the tech that was drawing my blood asked me if it was my first baby, i could have kissed her!)
we all know that ultra sound photos look like blobs that are really pretty unidentifiable! but since my whole family lives far away, and keep up with me through this blog, i am posting the my ultra sound photos! eric… i wish you could have been there… it looks like a swapp to me! you can see it so much clearer when the ultra sound is taking place, but the photos look so different when it takes the ‘photo’.
anyway… exciting! my date matched the measurements… so all is well!
the cravings are still pretty serious! the last four days… i have been craving anything with mustard on it! i even ate a hot dog. (shaking my head)…

i am wrapping up my cruise projects… i can hardly wait! it’s a month from today! Newbaby

    I hear ya on reverting back to “new mom status.” I just have 3 1/2 years in between my two and I feel like I have forgotten EVERYTHING! Heck…how much they eat, when to start on cereal, etc. etc. etc. It’s all wiped from my memory. LOL! Love your ultrasound pics. Do you know what you’re having yet?

    Heidi,
    That is so sweet to share your miracle with us. Thank you thank you… That is simply amazing. And I think you are right…When I had my son 7 years after my daughter, it was like being a first time mom…now my kids are ds-16, dd 23…**sigh**. I miss having little ones…
    Have fun!
    Louise

    I know what you mean about the “first mum” thing – almost 6 years between my two. How special seeing the scans… when I saw my first one I got so excited when I saw two – what I thought were big brown eyes just like daddy’s… no the lady said “dear, that’s the kidneys”!!! With my second baby I had a doctors appointment the day that my dad died and for the first time I heard the baby’s heartbeat, so special but I cried mountains, one heartbeat started, another finished.

    Wow, I think those scans are pretty clear. So amazing to see. A miracle!! You are making me want to have another baby!! LOL Thank you for sharing a little of your world with us. Can’t wait to see pics of the baby when he/she is born.

    Thanks for sharing! Ultrasoundpictures are amazing, no matter how bad quality it is. Beautiful! I have 7 yrs between my kids, and the second one truly felt like it was my first one 🙂

    those are great ultrasound pix..You are right about waiting in between. It was 6 years after my first was born and I was back at the docs, trying to make sense of the ultrasound “if that’s the baby, then what in the world is that!?”….oh…ANOTHER baby…and no my hubby wasn’t there either…I immediatly had him come home from work…his words of wisdom…I know it wasn’t what you planned, but let’s think positive…they aren’t conjoined! 🙂 gotta love him…

    Heidi, thank you for sharing your pictures with us – it’s pretty cool to see your mini-Swapp 🙂 Looking forward to seeing you again in April.

    sweet u/s pic!! what a cute teeny tiny baby!! 😀 i hear ya!! mine are 5 1/2 years apart, and i forgot EVERYTHING!!

    Aw, what a cute little blob! 🙂 At this time last year, I was looking at my own little blob. It’s such a wonderful feeling.

  21. Elsa Duff 6 February, 2006 at 6:26 pm - Reply

    Oh love the pics!! Made me almost want another one…almost but not quite teehee. I agree with the waiting. My first two were 20m apart, too close, than almost 3y for the next, still not right. #4 was 5y later and it was just like the first for sure. You probably don’t remember me but at CKU Vancouver I was the mum with all the boys that kept giving you back the pink prizes (MM metal class).

    Congrtulations again, Heidi. It IS amazing to see the first pictures of your baby. Especially for those of us who scrapbook :-).
    What you’re experiencing again is nothing beyond a miracle. It was the FIRST time you experienced it and it is now. We tried for 11 LONG years to have our 4 year old. And it brings tears to my eyes TODAY when I think about seeing her first ultrasound and hearing her heart beat for the first time. What a blessing! I’m happy for you.

    Oh, how exciting! What a wonderful day this must have been!! The pics are very clear ~ I could even tell that the first one was Baby Swapp’s head! I was getting all teary eyed looking at your pictures ~ I remember my pictures (sigh)! I’m sure you showed them to your children. Since the boys have been through an experience like this before, I will only ask: What did Quincy say when you showed her the pictures of her new little baby brother/sister?
    I am truly happy for you! Hope you are feeling well & know that you are in my thoughts & prayers!

    Thanks for sharing those ultrasounds and your thoughts… so sweet!
    But you need to stop rubbing it in that you get the latest episodes of 24 there… We’re only halfway to season 4 here! I’ll probably have to wait until season 5 is on dvd, so I can do an all-day 24 marathon 🙂
    Hey, if anyone can put new episodes on dvd and send them out, let me know? 😉
    I think it just so cool when someone I admire loves the same stuff I do… Make me believe that I if we have that in common, I might one day be as creative as you too…

    Heid,
    That’s the sweetest thing seeing your ultra sound pictures…made me emotional/teary and it’s not even mine. 🙂 We’re so excited that you’re expecting! Collin thinks everyone has a baby’s in their tummy and he’s officially asked me for a baby sister. hehehe (we’ve decided to get started on that)
    CHA looked like it went well. You seriously are just so amazing. We’re so proud to be related to you (even if it’s by marriage.)
    we’re excited to come see you, eric and the kids.
    LOVE YOU!!! rane

    Awwwww, I could never get tired of looking at ultrasound pics. Babies are so precious. I got to hold a newborn for the first time in a loooong while last weekend and the ol’ maternal instincts kicked in and made me want another baby SOOOOO badly! I guess I’ll just have to live vicariously through you!! 😉

    wow that is so cute – congratulations! Even after 4 babies, scan pics still make me broody!

    Hi Heidi,
    That ultrasound is very clear to me! It looks like a beautiful baby!!!!
    I hope to see you at Scrap-A-Ganza in Egmond aan Zee (the Netherlands) for the workshop Think Pink… I’ll be there anyway!
    Enjoy your pregnancy, it’s one of the most wonderful things in life!

    How sweet are those first baby pics!!! He/She looks JUST LIKE mine did when he was that little!! 😉 I’m sure little Swapp will be just as cute, too! Congrats!

    OH MY. Love the baby bean photo. Ours is on our fridge. Being almost 17 weeks along, I’m getting close to my next ultrasound later this month and hope to find out if we’re having a boy or girl. (Not that it matters either way, but still fun to look forward to.) I mainly wanted to comment about the mustard. It seems I’m craving mustard as well. I thought I was losing it when I had a hot dog and thought I was in heaven. Corn dogs are pretty good too right now. I am happy to read I’m not alone on this craving. Oh and MILK! I didn’t realize how much milk I was drinking until my husband said, “Um… you realize this is our third gallon in 9 days…” So baby must like mustard and milk. Congrats again. It’s fun to see your ultrasound photos!
