Progress on August savings

August 13th, 2009 at 10:27 am

Whew, starting to come down from the massive adrenaline rush I got from hearing my baby's heartbeat! We decided to go ahead and tell the rest of the world even though we're not quite at 12 weeks. It's been fun reading comments here and on Facebook. I can see how people who are already moms get super-excited when they find out someone is pregnant--now I'll always understand what a crazy high it is the first time you actually feel like the baby is yours. (I've been calling it the "embryo" and then the "fetus" this whole time; now I can't stop calling it a "baby"!)

Anyway, back to reality...even though we're going to cut back on savings and ramp up debt repayment soon, I decided to finish out August as planned. I'm not THAT impulsive. Smile So the regular biweekly savings hit, and I put $225 into the baby/emergency fund. $945 saved this month, $255 to go on my goal.

    No judgment here, just a comment. This is the first time I've ever heard someone call their own baby a fetus or an embryo. Just haven't heard it, that's all. Well, I guess except in a medical terminology kind of way (as in, the embryo does this at this stage, but not "my embryo"). Again, NOT JUDGING, JUST COMMENTING!

    But, I remember how excited I was when I heard my baby's heartbeat, too! It was really neat. Hope things continue to go smoothly.

    df's sister called her baby an 'it' and a 'thing' (in a nice way) until she heard the heartbeat and found out it was a 'she'. Smile

    Wait till you see the first ultrasound -- that is truly amazing! It astounded me when we had a 12 week ultrasound and saw DS's arms and legs moving like crazy. I had no idea that babies started moving that early.

    cp, guess I'm just weird. Smile I like reading all the scientific information about what is happening to the little guy each week, so it was an embryo when I found out about it (I was sad I missed the zygote stage because I think that word's really cute!). Then this week, it officially became classified as a fetus, so that was an exciting development (to me, anyway).
