just another monday...

I had to work today, and I am relieved to say it wasn't that bad. definitely better than last week. =)
Haven't had much nausea today, just a little when I got hungry, and a little tonight.

My doctor's office called me today. I have to go get another blood test tomorrow. Just to make sure my Hcg levels are going up and not down. (I don't know?) Obviously they aren't still high from the m/c, cause they usually go down almost immediately, and I have taken 2 pregnancy tests before I got a positive one. So yeah... Once they get the results back they will schedule me for an ultrasound. Yay! I can't wait for that! =)

I have the next two days off, and I have a house to clean, dishes to do and a turkey to cook. =)

We got our Christmas tree up last night. We got a small one (5ft) and put it on a low table so it looks a little bigger. We couldn't afford a bigger tree. Our budget is extremely tight right now.... It sucks. But at least we have a tree! It smells amazing! And I hat a mug of peppermint hot chocolate tonight. Yum! Complete with mini marshmallows!

i LOVE hot cocoa with peppermint/candy cane ice cream in it! YUMMY!

We often do the short tree on a table--more room for the presents (even budget ones)! ;-)

Hey Katrina,
I've been reading your blog for a while now...I think I know you or have seen you or something (from Manteca) but I can't figure it out! Anyway, wanted to let you know I've been lurking around:0) And say congratulations on the baby!!!

Did I ever say how cute your holiday blog look is?

Anyhow, I can't figure out what the guidelines are for prenatal care anymore. I never had a blood test with either of my pregnancies, although I know other people do. I didn't go to the doctor with my second until 8 weeks, they wouldn't see me before then! But I did get an ultrasound that first visit.

I hope you keep feeling well. You might want to stock up on granola bars or crackers to have in your purse at all times!
