Baby Update

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

We heard the baby's heartbeat today! It wasn't very clear and we weren't able to hear it with the Doppler so we did another ultrasound. No picture though. Boo. :( This time it was an abdominal ultrasound so it wasn't as clear as the vaginal ultrasound we have previously had. I could sort of see the baby, but not really. I pretended like I saw it. Sad. But we did get to hear the heart, which made me feel a lot better. My lower stomach has been cramping some and I just worry A LOT about everything. My Doctor said that is just normal because my uterus is expanding. He said unless I have heavy bleeding, then there is nothing to worry about. We go back in 3 weeks and I will be one day short of starting my 2nd trimester. At that time, I can more than likely stop taking the prometrium that I have been taking every night. At that point the placenta takes over and produces the progesterin, so I won't need the supplements, hopefully. I still feel like I am probably having a boy. Everyone thinks that, except my little brother. BUT, I have done several of those silly gender predictor charts, and they have all said girl! I don't really believe in those things, but they are fun. October needs to hurry up and get here so we can find out!

Last weekend I went to my parents' and Blue Eyes stayed home so he could work more on the house. He is totally done with the taping and floating so now all that needs to be done is texturing, painting, trim and floor. It will get done soon. I hope. After he is done, I'm going to hire a cleaning service to come in and clean the house from top to bottom because there is sooo much dust everywhere from all the sanding he had to do! And then we will hopefully start buying the baby furniture one peice at a time. It's so expensive!

The wedding is in less than 2 weeks! Yikes! We had some pictures taken the other day, but I haven't gotten them back yet. I will post them as soon as I get them!


Nine Weeks

Thursday, July 30, 2009

According to my little ticker, my baby is already flipping people off. I don't like that. But really it just means he or she has little fingers!!! Yay! I have started feeling better in the mornings and the evenings and in between. I have learned that I have to take my shower at night, because if I shower when I wake up, I get really nauseaus while showering. I have also learned that if I get hungry, I must eat within 30 minutes or my stomach will hurt really bad and then I won't be able to eat anything. My lower stomach is pooching out some. I feel really fat.

I will be glad when the whole wedding thing is over. I'm excited but just anxious because of certain things (people) and I'm afraid someone is going to start problems and not act like an adult. Long story.

Blue Eyes started working on the house again last night (thank God). We are going to use the big, new room as our office. It's going to be a pretty big office, but we decided not to make it our master bedroom, because it will be too far from the baby, and there is not a bathroom on that side of the house. (I get up to pee 3 times a night, so this is important) Once we get done with that room, and I'm hoping it doesn't take too much longer, we will get all of our office stuff out of the room that it's in now, and move it so we can start cleaning and fixing up the baby's room. The hard wood floor needs to be restained in one spot, and there is a spot on the ceiling that needs to be fixed. It will all get done, but I'm just realizing that it's going to come so much faster than we are planning. I bought something for the baby. Already, I know! It's such a cute little pajama set with the booties and hat. The sleeves fold over the baby's hands and it makes a little lamb. Sooo sweet. It's in yellow. But we know we are having a boy. We know it. We should find out in October for sure. I guess I can post the names. It's not a secret or anything. Ok, if it's a boy, and it will be, the name is going to be Braden Cory. Blue Eyes' middle name is Cory and we both really like the name Braden. We are also keeping the "BR" names. Oh sorry, Blue Eyes' real name is Brandon. I'm sure I've said that before, but just in case you are new or something! And if we have a girl it will be Brayleigh Dawn. My middle name is Leigh and my mom's middle name is Dawn.

Well, it's raining outside and my boss isn't here, so I think I'm going to crawl under my desk and take a nap. And here is a picture of what our baby should look like right now, at 9 weeks:He or she is the size of a medium green olive.

Also, do not Google "9 week fetus". Just don't.

Here I am!

Yes, I am still alive!! Kind of.

I have been so tired, and so sick the last couple of weeks. I missed Goodwill Wednesday. Sorry, ladies. But I've also realized that the Goodwill here sucks, so I don't even think it's worth playing anymore. They don't have very good treasures. So, unless I go to Austin where the Goodwill's are "cool", I'm not going to participate.

Now, on to this whole pregnancy thingy. I feel HORRIBLE! I haven't thrown up yet, but I almost wish I would. This is the worst feeling ever! Don't get me wrong, I am so, so happy that I am pregnant. This is something I've wanted since I was little! Is that weird? But really, all I ever wanted when I was little was to be a Mommy. I will put up with all the sickness if it means I get to hold a perfect little baby in March. We went to my appointment last week and got to have another ultrasound. The baby looks like a smashed grape! This is my 7w2d ultrasound:

Aww. Isn't it so cute? I'll be glad when I can tell what it is! We go back August 4, and we should be able to hear the heart beat. I can't wait! They are monitoring my blood pressure and adjusted my medicine for that, so I have to keep that under control.

Blue Eyes and I will become husbee and wifee on August 15 in a very small ceremony. I am looking forward to being Mrs. Blue Eyes! Only, my eyes are green, so, uh, that doesn't really make sense. Oh well!

And I am very sorry for not blogging, or leaving comments. Please understand that it took A LOT for me to write this. Now I need a nap.

I'm sorry. I just can't participate in Goodwill Wednesday today. I am toooo excited!

We got our first picture of the baby today, and I almost cried. Even though it looks like just a blob/dot, we could see the heart beat flickering! OMG! Tiny, tiny flicker!

I am exactly 6 weeks pregnant today and our due date is March 3, 2010.

I am so happy, and so is Blue Eyes!!

Now I can get me one of those fancy little tickers that all the cool pregnant girls have!!
