Babies First Picture

We FINALLY got to see and hear our little bambino yesterday. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. We of course had to wait forever at the doctor and I had to fill out a ton more paperwork, but then it was time for our ultrasound. I love the lady who does the ultrasounds because she is so peppy and happy. She remembered me from the first time I had an ultrasound which wasn't as happy as this visit. She was able to get a great picture from the belly ultrasound and we know it is definitely my child because bebe was moving around like crazy and waving its arms. The heartbeat was nice and strong at 162 bpm. I FINALLY feel better and I feel like we are closer to being in the clear and nothing going wrong, but I think instead of feeling relief Brent finally felt like this was all real. I have known it is real because I can feel it everyday, but it wasn't really real for him until he saw it. So here (she/ Joan says he) is.

Week 9

I have been feeling much better this week. My nausea seems to have finally gone away I am horridly bored being stuck at home for Christmas break, but it is really nice to be able to rest whenever I want to. This week I got to spill the beans to Cary, Brett, and Laura Finally. I was supposed to go to lunch with Nicole, but she couldn't leave work so I haven't had a chance to tell her yet. 1 more day and the family will know and then 1 more week until the secret isn't a secret anymore. I just hope our appointment goes well next week. I hope everything is still in there and everything is ok.

I started my cloth diaper stash this weekend. I found 11 practically new tiny gpants on ebay and bid on those (crossing my fingers I win them). I bought 1 white and 1 green pain of small little g pants and I just bought 1 cute pair of Best Bottom cloth diapers with an overnight insert. I am getting really excited about using cloth diapers. It is cheaper then disposable diapers, I believe it is better for the baby because it doesn't have all of the chemicals disposable diapers have, and we won't be throwing away thousand of diapers over our child's lifetime. I am still not sure how I talked Brent into it (I didn't really give him a choice). When we start looking into child care this is something we will have to talk about because most daycares won't use cloth diapers, but I am hoping if I show them how easy they are then it won't be a problem. I am also thinking about finding someone to keep our baby at their home so maybe that will be easier. We have a while to decide all of that though. I keep obsessively checking my ebay to make sure noone has outbid me on my diapers! I want my tiny gpants!

Week 8

Yesterday was the beginning of week 8. Somehow being this far makes me feel better. I will feel even better once I get to see and hear my peanut. Nothing new to report. I am still feeling like shi~ and I am super tired. I fell asleep nauseous and with a headache last night around 8:30. Poor B slept on the couch (and will be there all week) because he is on call. I think I am going to let Cathy in on the secret today. I feel bad making her keep my secret, but I want her to know why I have been eating really weird food and been grumpy some days. The biggest change in my life as of right now is eating. I used to be a VERY healthy eater, I am slowly moving back to fruits and veggies, but all I can seem to eat right now is carbs. Bread, pasta, chips, ughhhhhhh! I am actually going to take a belly picture today since I skipped last week. I definitely have a pooch, but I think it is more bloating and from eating crap. I am trying to cover up my sea bands under a sweater today. I thought they might help me feel better throughout the day. I actually slept with them on last night and slept great! Hopefully this morning sickness starts getting better very soon. I think there might actually be a baby in there!!! That is either a baby, bloating, or eating too much crap! How You Doing Sick Sick Sick Tired All Day Bloated Cravings Nothing sounds good at the moment Weight 126.0 At Dr. last week (me thinks that was bloat and I normally weigh myself in the am, naked, after peeing so this is not an accurate description of my weight ; )

7 Weeks

Nothing too exciting this week. I had my Dr. appt. Wed., but it was kind of boring. They confirmed the pregnancy (thank you for waisting my money on that I think the nausea and being exhausted was a huge giveaway) No ultrasound yet. They scheduled me to come back Dec. 29 for the picture of le bebe. I need to take another picture to keep up with my weekly updates. We still haven't told anyone except for our parents, my sister, and my best friend Lis. We will start telling select people these next few weeks and then work after Christmas.

And so it begins!

I knew it was coming I just wasn't sure when, but it is here! Week 6 and morning sickness has set in! I started feeling bad Monday evening and then when I woke up. That has been the pattern ever since. I feel really bad in the mornings, crud in the afternoon, and complete shi& in the evenings. I finally called my Dr. yesterday after having a really bad night Wed. night and feeling horrible yesterday and they wrote me pass out on the couch and sleep all night. I have been taking a 1/2 a pill, but today it isn't working as well as it seemed too yesterday. I am going to hide my sea bands under sweaters for the next 2 weeks. I just feel sick all day long, but like I tell B it is a good thing because I feel like everything is still there. I just hope it passes quickly. How You Doin SICK!!! TIRED!!! Cravings Nothing sounds good at the moment. I am eating to live right now. Weight 123
