I hope everyone’s having a happy Wednesday. What a week it’s been…

1. We got to see the baby again. Of course baby was on its tummy again but this time baby listened to Mama and flipped. The tech got everything she needed and said everything looked normal. We are still “team green” over here.

2. I was going to do a 21 week baby update last night but got home and realized my suitcase was missing from my car…

3. So today was fun. I had to file a police report for my missing stuff, which included my laptop, brand new polar HRM, baby books, my Garmin forerunner, running shoes, my Nook and lots of clothes, including my new “sweating for two” tank. It breaks my heart just thinking about everything I lost and knowing that some creeper is looking and rummaging through all my personal belongings. Our auto insurance doesn’t cover personal property and our renters insurance just expired and I was holding out until we moved into our new apartment next week. So until my laptop shows up, I’m blogging via iPhone.

4. Lessons I’ve learned from this: password protect everything! Luckily, I did. Back up all important documents and pics. I bought a hard drive awhile ago and just did this. Keep renters insurance!!!! Also, write down all the serial numbers for your electronics.

I’m aware that it’s just stuff and very thankful that the car, myself or baby weren’t hurt. I’m done dwelling on everything that I lost and tonight I got a reminder on what’s important in life: my family got to hear baby’s heartbeat for the first time tonight 🙂 A coworker of mine borrowed her Doppler to me and it works awesomely. We got to hear the baby moving around and the little heart beat. Pure amazingness.

Things will be replaced eventually, but the moments I have with baby are something that need to be cherished.

What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever lost?

    First things first — little buddy's heartbeat, yay!!! So exciting!My heart breaks a little for you though, so frustrating to have this happen. I had my car and its contents stolen once, so I know that feeling and it just makes you sick. So sorry. But happy you are okay, and healthy. Sending positive vibes!!!

    Yay, baby! And that is TERRIBLE about your stuff. Seriously?! I hope that thief gets caught and hopefully you can get your stuff back. I hope they feel especially guilty knowing they stole from an expectant mother. RUDE!Good luck with the move! I'm sad that I never got to meet you and have gluten free cupcakes while you were in Chicago. 😦

    We'll be back for sure! Hubs is from Chicago so all of his family lives here 🙂 I'd love to meet up for gluten free cupcakes!!
