Happy Birthday to me!

Yep, today it was my birthday, but Karl left on Sunday for his TDY at the Marshall Islands, so I spent the day (mostly) alone.  I couldn’t sleep last night, so wasn’t feeling great all day, so it was actually a relief that aside from prenatal yoga and lunch plans, I had the rest of the day free.

Before Karl left, we headed over to Buddha Bar for some amazing (albeit expensive) food to celebrate my big day!  The atmosphere there is great, even though it’s so hard to get a good picture of it with my phone!



I had a delicious green papaya salad, then black pepper beef, and we finished the night with dessert.  And no, I didn’t take any pictures of the food – I was too busy eating it!

Today, I tried prenatal yoga, which I’m still unsure about.  It was kind of boring.  And I guess I like more intense workouts so it feels like I’ve done something?  But either way, since I wasn’t feeling well before and after class, I didn’t follow it up with my usual workout (though hoping to get back at it again tomorrow – I’ve been really good at getting back to it, and aiming for 4 workouts a week!).

I met up a couple of my Brazilian friends for a yummy Italian lunch at L’Opera then came home and basically collapsed in bed, but before I could fall asleep, Karl woke me up with a Skype call, which means I ended up starting my nap after 5pm and now I’m wide awake…. 

A couple of my friends were super-duper sweet and invited me out to celebrate, but because of my state (there was even some vomiting earlier in the day – I thought that phase was over!), I had to decline, but hoping to make up for it later this week!

I also got a shot of my bump today!  Though I’ll be 16 weeks on Thursday, I’m nowhere near looking pregnant just yet, I just looked like I indulged in too many all you can eat fares…

But this was me 9 days ago…


5 days ago…


And this is what went to my instagram today…


Definitely a “pooch” peeking out! 

As for baby news, I had an appointment last week, all looks good, but baby was hiding the goods.  So though we still got a “it looks like a… but I can’t be sure” that’s still not enough to know whether we’re in the pink or blue team, so because I seem to be too impatient to wait 5 weeks for my next appointment, I’ll be back at the office next week, right before flying to the Marshall Islands to see if we can get a confirmation of anything.  Fingers crossed no good will be hidden in the process!
