Congrats, @Samuelismomma! Enjoy every moment with your sweet baby girl!
I am now at 7 weeks. I had my first dr's appt on Monday. I wasn't expecting a sonogram, but I got to see my baby and hear his/her little heartbeat. All looked good -- baby is in the uterus, heart is beating, size matches dates and there's just one. We were thrilled.

But then I got some very bad news. My best friend of almost 30 years who was just a few days ahead of me is miscarrying. She and her husband have had a rough enough year already, and this is such a huge disappointment. I think she's handling it very well, but I feel just terrible for them. And I was so excited that we'd be doing this together.
Wishing you wonderful baby blessings in 2015!
1) Get better organized: I never find anything I need, so I
think it’s time to become more OCD, and label things/have places for things.
2) Pay it forward: Every January, I do “Pay it Forward”
every day of the month. I want to make sure I do all days and not miss any, and
make someone else’s life happier.
3) Stay in touch with friends: I need to plan more girl’s
nights, actually call instead of text friends, more communication overall.
4) Lose baby weight: I want to be able to fit in my old
jeans by end of November. That gives me 6 months postpartum to reach this goal….ready
to hit it hard at the gym this year!
5) Save money: I am bad at this. I want to have a decent
nest egg by year’s end. I need to force myself to save from each paycheck, and
