Hey ladies! Thought I'd start a general chat thread for this month so we can keep up to date on each other!
So, this is what I did yesterday:
We had a beautiful day weather wise, I couldn't have asked for better! Everything turned out great, a few hiccups here and there (including having to take a 15 minute break with my dress TOTALLY undone because I couldn't breathe), but overall, we're so happy with how everything turned out. Can't wait to get the professional pictures back!
This week, I go for another round of bloodwork on Tuesday, looking forward to seeing some really high numbers, and then we leave for our honeymoon on Wednesday morning. Should be a good week! If the numbers look good, I think the Dr. will send me for an ultrasound next week, so I'm going to see if I can get next Monday off and go the the u/s then.
How are you all feeling?
I've been getting the WORST gas pains. Other than that, and being more tired than I've ever been in my life, I'm doing pretty well. Still pretty nervous about whether I'll be getting good or bad news about the pregnancy this week. The spotting has completely stopped now, which definitely makes me feel much better. I just want to see a heartbeat!
What a beautiful beautiful pic!!! You look amazing!! So glad to hear the spotting stopped! Hope all goes well with you appt. and with your honeymoon!!! Congrats!
Congratulations, you looked beautiful!
It's my birthday today!!
Unfortunately, I am stuck in work and have been stressed out trying to get my car back. It broke down on Thursday and the garage it's at is being useless. Grrrrrrrrrrr!
I have friends coming around tonight which should be nice
Me - Kristi, 29
DD - Leia, July 5 2008
I luurrrrrve to lurk!
Jessica, you look amazing! Sorry about your dress though - this time around (I've been married twice), we got married in jeans a t-shirt. I wore one that said bride, DH refused to wear a "husband" one LOL! I hope you have a great time on your honeymoon and I hope you get back excellent news!
Jessica, you looked gorgeous! Congratulations, you guys look soooo happy. So glad to hear that your spotting has completely stopped, that has got to be a huge relief. Where is your honeymoon?
Kristi - Happy Birthday!!!! Also, what's the deal lady? Are you preggers or what?
AFM - Oh my gosh, do your partners/husbands ever do something that just completely melts your heart? DH's grandma has been moved to hospice care and she's not doing well. I guess she was complaining that she's always cold, so my big, strong, tattooed DH is currently sitting at the kitchen table working diligently to make his grandma a hand tied fleece knot blanket.
I love that guy.
-Alissa, mom to Tristan (5) and Reid (the baby!)
Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
Thanks everyone! We're going to Montreal, Quebec for our honeymoon, just a couple of days. We were going to go to Quebec City, which is supposedly a beautiful, old city, but since the beginning of July, they've had an outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease which apparently is being passed around the city through air conditioning units. Scary stuff! I think that so far, 11 people have died, maybe more. We were planning on doing one night in Montreal, but have just decided to spend the whole trip there instead.
Kristi - Hopefully your car is back up and running soon, what a pain!
Alissa - Your hubby sounds sweet! DH would do something like that too, he's big and tough on the outside, but would do anything to help anyone. His grandma will love that!
I am SO tired.. I think now that the wedding is over, I will start to experience, or at least notice that I'm experiencing symptoms. Before, I couldn't let anything slow me down, I had too much left to do getting ready, and getting the house ready prior to the wedding. DH and I have vowed to pack up the tools and painting gear and not touch it for at least a month. We need a BREAK! I'll have to put together a video tour of all of the changes we've made.
Jessica sorry your honeymoon plnas changed, but that legionaires disease does sound scary. A hotel in dallas was shut down bc of it this year.
AFM-we spent labor day weekend in Chicago visiting old friends. It was fun, but are worn out. We walked something like 30 miles. DH was so worrried about me the whole time...rightfully so, I felt like crap most of the time. My friends are training for some mountian hiking. So they are in excellent shape. My friend also kept telling me "it is good for the baby." Lol. Maybe its good for the baby, but not for me. At least I only puked once.
Next weekend we are in vegas for my bros wedding. I'm just tired thinking about it.
Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I've been moving in slow motion. I do everything at work extra slow ( I haven't started shuffling my feet yet..lol), I'm lazy when I get home and on my days off? I don't hardly get up off the couch. I honestly don't know if I'm really *that* tired or if I'm using it as an excuse to lay around.
Speaking of excuses, if I puke during the day - I don't cook dinner. I JUST realized that today. I threw up and texted DH that I'm throwing up and I'm not making dinner. Of course, it was one of the worst ones - just throwing up so much I can't catch a breath and then my back aches from tensing so much. But generally that's how it goes - if I puke, he eats pizza. LOL.
I'm off tomorrow. I was going to watch my friends kids while she gets her HCG level checked (she miscarried, she was due the same day as me ) but she's getting a neighbor to do it..which is fine, that's a LONG drive for her to get her blood taken. I thought we might talk or hang out but apparently she's busy, so... looks like another day of couch-hogging for me tomorrow!
