Bye Atticus!!

Over the past week, Nick and I were dog-sitting for Atticus, and besides my dogs, he's one of my favorites! He is a 7 month old chocolate lab and he is the sweetest puppy ever! We were tempted to steal him, but I don't think his mom would have liked me too much. Atticus had to leave yesterday and we are all pretty bummed, however, I think deep down our dogs are glad to see him go :) They didn't like our attention going to any dog but them!
Last Friday I hit 13 weeks and throughout the pregnancy, all my friends would say, "once you get into your 2nd trimester, you'll feel like a whole new person"....but I was convinced that was all bogus talk and I was going to feel like poo-poo the rest of my life. WELL....I swear that once I hit that 13 week point, I DID feel like a whole new person!!! And Thank God!!! I'm still not 100%, more around 80%. I'm just so thrilled, mostly because we leave for YoungLives camp in a week and a half and I really wanted to feel good for it, so yay!
Last week when I went in for my 2nd doctors appointment, I got to hear the heartbeat and that was pretty cool! He said the little kiddo is the size of a giant shrimp and the eyes are no longer on the side of it's head...haha! Doctor said everything else looks great, I do have to go to a Neurologist in 2 weeks because since I have become pregnant, I have had bad numbness and tingling in my right leg and it's really starting to bother me, especially when I'm sleeping. He said it's probably just a nerve blockage and hopefully some physical therapy will fix it.
That's all for now.....

I'm glad you feel better. I've been praying for you! Let me know how the neurologist appointment goes. Great news that the heartbeat is great and you have a giant shrimp! :)
