4/11/07 - Sunday!
Weekends just go by faster now that I sleep so much! Overall I am feeling fine. I still have some nausea but it seems that if I am distracted (going for a walk with Jason and Vinny.. which is always fun! Reading, etc) it get's better, so maybe my mom is rigth about morning sickness being psycological... (I am sure there would be half a dozen of pregnant woman I know that would shoot me for saying this!) Yesterday we went to a soccer game and two pubs afterwards.. it feels weird not having a drink! Not that I miss it, but people who know me think it is weird too when I do' have a pint at a pub! They better get used to it!
Yesterday we also went to Battersea park to meet up with some friends and Vinny's girlfriend. There were so many children (all sizes) and it made me smile and think that we will soon have our little one!
Today we are having lunch with a friend and Jason wanted to go shopping for the little 'lentil com coracao' afterwards. I am still reluctant, since we are still in the 'critical phase' but I feel this baby is here to stay!!!!

I have added the 'baby ticker', which shows how the baby is progressing! It is soooooo interesting. There are a couple of websites that are great in explaining what is happening each week/day:
