Doing the 13 Week Happy Dance!

And what a better day to hit the 2nd Trimester than MY BIRTHDAY! WOOT WOOT! :-)

Ok ok - I won't be celebrating my birthday too much today. One - because we are trying to save every penny. And two - because well, I'm KU! In recent past birthdays, they've went out in style! Extravagant dinners with all my friends - champagne and all! Well - sparkling cider just isn't the same! So I think maybe this year I'll just lay low. Mr GB offered to make me a nice dinner at home and told me I can pick between getting the Ugg Boots I've been wanting since last Sept.22nd. (I know we're saving right?) Or getting my hair did! :-) The controversy of getting my hair dyed while KU still stands but I got the ok from Dr. C now that the 2nd Tri hit and as long as the fumes don't make me ill I'm ok. I haven't decided what I want more?! Suggestions anyone?

Regardless, I'm definitely psyched about hitting the 2nd Tri. A lot of the worries I had went out the window but with those now I have others. I always thought that 9 months would drag on and I'd feel like I was pregnant forever but so far, it's flown by and now I feel like I haven't done a dang thing to prepare! I keep saying we are waiting to find out the sex... which is still over a month away! Also, I thought I'd magically feel different when I hit the 2nd Tri - like a light switch all my energy would come back and I would feel normal again. Well, that just doesn't happen, at least it hasn't as of today.I doubt I'll feel normal for a good while now but I have learned though that I get A LOT more tired in the afternoons if I haven't drank enough fluids. So as long as I stay hydrated I can usually ward off needing that afternoon nap - as long as I get to bed before 9. :-)

I really can't complain though - I sailed through the 1st Tri without an ounce of morning sickness. I really give some kudos to those of you who it hit bad - I have a girlfriend who's only a week behind me and she's still in the toilet every morning. I have set a new goal though since I do technically have a little more energy during normal waking hours. The gym membership that I've been ignoring has to get more use to justify keeping the expense. So, my goal is to go walk on the treadmill or the elliptical 3 times per week. Period.

Oh and I almost forgot - today is my favorite day of the year for another reason! Today at precisely 5:18 EST it is officially FALL! The best and my favorite time of the year!

SO - HAPPY 2nd TRI, GLOW BUD'S BIRTHDAY, FALL - to each and every one of you today!

1) Happy Birthday!!
2) I vote for uggs. I'm a big fan of better safe than sorry - and I wouldn't expose myself to any unnecessary chemicals while pg. But that's just me. Besides the uggs will last a while... the hair = that will fade.

I hope you have a wonderful day.
