I stuffed my face with ham, green bean casserole, hashbrown casserole, fruit salads, mashed potatoes, cheesecake....
It was delicious!!! As soon as we got there I realized that there were whispers and a LOT of glancing eyes to my tummy... my MIL in her excitement told a few family members, and in THAT family there is no such things as secrets. They are nothing but supportive and loving- but still nosey.

As for this week, I have my first ultrasound Wednesday!!!! I cannot wait to see the baby, or babies!! Praying that the heart beat is healthy and strong

Physically I am a nauseous mess... I am SO DIZZY every time I stand up it's making me a little worried. I am really tired too. Besides all those S/E and many more I am still over the moon about this pg. It's just still a little hard to believe until I see that u/s...

Ooooo! How exciting! I can't wait to hear how your u/s goes!!! I'm sorry you're not feeling well tho. (((HUGS)))

AFM....I pigged out at Thanksgiving and as usual there was not enough stuffing. My MIL makes the MOST AMAZING stuffing EVER and I drool for it all year long!

Friday, we had a family Texas Hold'em game and hubby and I won 1st and 2nd so we got all the money!

Saturday, hubby bought me a new 51" flat screen and spent the afternoon mounting it above the fireplace.

And today, we Christmas decorated! I my house when all the Christmas decorations are up. Lilly was so funny....she was walking all around the house checking everything out saying "Oh, cute!" to each new thing she saw. LOL!

And not much going on this week. I start my Femara tonite so I'll just be twiddling my thumbs waiting to O.

We had a pretty good weekend, too. For the first time EVER, DH and I stayed home for Thanksgiving and didn't travel. I missed my family, but it was really nice and relaxing to do our own thing with Claire. I cooked enough food for an army and we all ate way too much

LOL, after we decorated for Christmas, Claire walked around saying "oooh, pretty" all day!

We did a low key thanksgiving with friends, which was fun. We put up lights outside on friday, and saturday put up the tree. Sunday DH added lights and decorated the tree under my supervision, because I was a klutz and fell down the stairs on Saturday night and fractured my foot.....So I'm on crutches and not allowed to bear weight on my right foot for a week or more.

I had a great Thanksgiving with wonderful family, did some awesome black Friday shopping with my sis and nephew, hung around the house with the hubby, woke up Saturday and lounged in bed watching TV with hubby until 1:00 (SO RARE! and SO NICE!) went to the gym quite a bit....all in all it was a fantastic little break!

Yiks - I hope your foot gets better fast Jen. I am sorry that happened to you. I am a klutz too - I fall regularly. I fall so much that I am good at it. lol

My Thanksgiving was awesome. We had about 22 people of our house and had a 30 lbs turkey. It was a monster! The rest of the weeked was relaxed and enjoyable and we also got all our outside lights up.

OOOh poor Jen! That must have hurt (and still does I bet!)

We had Thanksgiving lunch with our friends. Then on Saturday we traveled to Houston to meet my mom and her fiance. My brother had to work so he coudn't meet us. We had to stay near Houston for the RE appointments so I couldn't travel all the way home for the holiday.

I can't wait to hear from Melissa after the ultrasound on Wedneday!

I have 2 monitoring appointments this week then trigger on Friday or Saturday.
