Things have been fairly uneventful since the last post. On Friday I called my OB office to set up the first appointment. They needed my records for review, but were closing early that day. She said I could drop them off Monday and that should be plenty of time for the doctor. My first appointment is next Monday (6/9) with one of the nurses. It's a simple appointment to go over medical history and do a physical. Hopefully at that point I can get an idea of what their high risk care is like.
The evening sickness has been starting earlier and earlier every day. I haven't gotten physically ill yet, but I feel it is only a matter of time now. The bloat has also gotten ridiculous. We were running late this morning so I threw on my outfit without much scrutiny in the mirror. Upon arriving to work I went to the bathroom and was shocked when I saw my side view. I took a picture last night at home to have a nice 8 week bump pic, but the picture today was just too insane not to post.
How far along? 8 weeks

Best moment last week? Seeing butterfly again and being released from the RE!

What I miss: Alcohol. Our friends came over this weekend and left a few Leinenkeugal Shandies, my favorite summer beer, in the fridge. They taunt me.
What I am looking forward to: Getting quotes on flooring for the nursery and finishing up painting the kitchen.
Milestones: Butterfly is a raspberry! Also having my PIO dose cut in half, only three more weeks of meds to go!
