I rescheduled the u/s for Jan 5th so DH can come. I need him there if there is any bad news.
I'm going to leave this journal here until I'm able to hear the h/b on the 5th.
I have really bad heartburn right now. I took my meds, but OMG, it's taking forever to work.
The doc also gave me some antinausea medication in case I need it. I had hyperemesis last time around, so we're expecting it this time too. HealthNet only allows 9 pills at a time because those 9 pill cost $400. OMG! What would we do without insurance? I only paid $5 for that RX. EEEK!
I'm also never eating beans again. OMG! OUCH and Pee-U!!! I'm gassing myself out!
No nausea yet. It's making me worry. I called the nurse at my OB today to get my results. She said they look good and not to worry. Dummy me, I forgot to ask her for the HCG numbers. I'm too embarrassed to call back and ask. I don't want to bug!
I'm still not feeling sick. I worry every day about this little one. My boobs aren't sore either. I *DO* have an insatiable appetite for protein though. I've had scrambled eggs 3 days in a row and I could go for a monster steak with A1 sauce right now. Oh my mouth is watering. It's 11pm and I want a steak.
I really need to just relax and enjoy not feeling sick. I know that what's going to happen is going to happen and it's all in God's hands, but it's so hard to just let go and relax over the holiday.
My u/s is soooooooooooo far away! I'll be 9 weeks by then. Grow little one. Be healthy. Have a strong heartbeat. I love you already.
Well, yesterday at 6 weeks exactly, I got really sick to my stomach. OMG, it felt so gross. I made DH take me to the store to get some beef jerky because I was a raging lunatic who had to have some beef. Oh, I could drown myself in A1 sauce right now. I want a big, thick, juicy T-bone. mmmmmmmmmmm
Sweets repulse me.
I had to take a half a Zofran yesterday because the nausea got so bad. Then I had the most wicked case of constipation that evening. I thought I was going to die. Constipation is a side effect of Zofran. It's a toss up, severe nausea or constipation. Which would you choose. Anyways, I thought I was going to beat the constipation side effect this time around. I ate a bowl of raisin bran for breakfast, had salad for lunch, walked 3.25 miles after lunch, and had a big glass of grape juice with Metamucil in it. What more could I do? Oh yeah, and water. I drank lots of water. This is crazy. I'm still sleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepy. I'm going back to bed.
A few more weeks until the u/s! Then I can change this journal over to a pregnancy journal.
Grow little one. Be healthy. I love you!
I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas. It came soooooo quickly this year. Oh man, do I feel pukey. :puke: Time just seems to be ticking away slowly when I think about my u/s appt. though. I just want to see my baby and know she's ok. I want to hear that heartbeat. This waiting is such torture!
I've been having a good time with DH's family. His grandma is great. We like to sit and do crossword puzzles together.
I'm sooooooo tired. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Well, I saw my gorgeous little babe on the u/s screen today. The little heart pumping away was such an awesome sight. She's measuring right on schedule at 9 weeks. I was sooooooooo nervous going in there. I just layed on that table expecting bad news. Then the tech said, "Ok, let's bring your DH back here for a little show!" Then I knew everything was ok.
She brought Ron back and we just stared at the screen in amazement. We could see the little leg moving around and the tech did something with her snazzy new u/s machine so that the cord and heart were highlighted. I couldn't catch my breath. It was so cool to see that little heart pumping away. OMG! I still can't believe there is another little person in there.
On a side note, the heartburn and constipation are killing me. Oy vay!
I guess I'll be asking Missy to turn this into a pregnancy journal. Thank you all so much for your support through my TTC experience! I hope you had a few good laughs at my expense!
Ok, so now I'm on the pregnancy journal side of things.
10 weeks 2 days.
I threw up today. I feel like shit. I have a cold. Nate threw up all night last night. I'm tired. Sooooooooooo tired. DH was a gem though. He's the only one in the house who's not sick and he cleaned up all of Nate's pukie bedding and cleaned him up all night long and let me rest. Today he is my hero.
So, I'm having a dilemma. My doctor said that neither of the hospitals where I can deliver will allow video taping. That is a huge problem for me because watching the video of the birth is VERY important. I really don't know what to do as my only other option is a homebirth and that just scares me. I can't even tell anyone about that because everyone just dies of shock and acts like a HB is the most horrendous thing they've ever heard of. Oh please!
I don't want to go back to work on Tuesday. I feeeeeeeeeel sooooooo yucky! WAAAAAHHH!
SIL is getting so close to having her baby. DH and I are very excited. Every time the phone rings, we hope it's her calling to tell us some news.
Today I feel a bit better. Cough, cough, sneeze, sniff, moan, groan. BLAH!
DH, the sweetheart that he is, went to get me a Coldbuster at our local smoothie shop. I can't wait for him to get home.
I slipped and fell and hit my tailbone on our tile floor today. Ouchie, my bum hurts! No cramping or bleeding or anything though, so I think I'm ok. DH said, jokingly, "Oh, you just did that so you can have another ultrasound."
Nate is growing like a weed still. He is so cute. He comes to my bed and says, "Mommy, I sleep with you?" How can I resist?
Ok, must go do laundry and grade some papers. Ug!
Glad you are feeling better! Sorry you busted your bootay.
Last night I couldn't sleep because I was soooo congested. I went to work today, but had to come home early to sleep. I slept from 1pm to 7pm. It's almost 10pm now and I'm ready for more sleep LOL!
Beverly had her baby yesterday. DH and I are so excited for them! They will be such wonderful parents. I can't wait to meet Dylan. The pictures MIL sent me are so lovely. He is such a cutie and looks just like his Daddy.
I wish I had a little window into my uterus. I know we've heard the heartbeat and the u/s showed the baby to be right on schedule, but I can't help worrying. Sigh, I guess that's my job. I'm a mom. LOL!
11 weeks tomorrow.
I'm going to acupuncture tomorrow. I hope she can help with this horrendous cold and poke me in some constipation spots too cuz I'm so tired of being stopped up.
Hot Dog or Hamburger? What will it be? We find out March 12th. I'm so excited! I don't care whether it's a boy or a girl, but everyone else seems to want a girl. Either way, I'll be one happy mama!
I'm not doing well today. I feel like crap.
I have a headache. I'm constipated. I'm nauseous. I'm exhuasted. I have insomnia. I'm having painful cramps.
I seriously hate complaining because after 10 months of TTC, I'm sooooooooooo glad I'm pregnant, but I just don't feel good.
I want August to hurry up and get here so I can meet this new little person and not feel so sick.
DH has an appt. with at a job fair tomorrow. Good grief, I hope he gets a job. I'll stop here before I have another coniption about this situation. Maybe it's something for my private journal. I'm VERY frustrated though.
ahem, I love what it says on your ticker, love. Chronic constipation.. it seemed appropriate to me.
Feel free to complain darling, as much as you want to be pregnant sometimes it's just NOT fun.
I can't believe you're 12 weeks already.. I'm in shock and awe. I can NOT wait to see your new member
12 weeks, 1 day.
Yeah Nadine, chronic constipation it is. Your babies are here and I can't wait to see the pictures!
I've been doing well lately. The constipation has let up a bit and I seem to be going once a day again. It's still hard as a rock and wrapped with barbed wire when it comes out, but hey, pooping barbed rocks is better than no pooping at all!
DH and I DTD last night and I bled a bit. I kinda got scared, but this morning there is just a tiny bit of brown blood, so I think everything is fine. I'm so much more relaxed this time around. I'm hoping that is a good thing!
Work is going great. My Dept. chair just told me that she got an email from the interrum president telling her that I am going to be hired permanently. I jumped out of my chair, hugged her, and said, "OMG, I LOVE YOU!!!!" She laughed. I am soooooo happy. I told her that I'm pregnant. She said that's no problem at all and they'll work around it. I'm so happy that she was so kind about it. I really love my job and the people I work with. It's such a dream come true.
DH has an interview next week and then two job fair appointments the week after. I hope someone hires him. That will be good for us.
I have a meeting with a midwife on the 12th of Feb. I'm kinda anxious. I'm not totally comfortable with a homebirth, but I'm scared of a hospital birth. I just don't know what to do. The HB is $4000 and I don't know where we're getting that money. *SIGH*
Nate is doing well. Last night he told me, "Mommy, I did BIG poopy! Come wipe my butt!"
I can't wait until March 12th!!! Hot Dog or Cheeseburger?????
I keep forgetting to add that I've been feeling little vibrations for about a week now. I kind of expected that since I started to feel Nate at 11 weeks. I can't wait until it's a full blown kick. That'll be great!
I have heartburn tonight. DH was a sweety and went out to Alberto's and got me cheese enchiladas and a donut for dessert. Yum, that was delicious, but my poor stomach just doesn't do well with spicey food. I'm sure the donut didn't help either. Back to healthy food tomorrow.
13 weeks tomorrow. Last night, I was laying in bed, talking to DH, and I felt a little "thunk." I looked over at DH and said, "Oh, I just felt the baby kick!" That was crazy! It was tiny, but there it was.
DH just got a job. Hallelujah! He'll be teaching Algebra at a local high school. I really hope he likes this job. He didn't like accounting that much. I'm just excited that there will be another paycheck finally! LOL!
I'm still feeling ok. I've been crampy lately. I guess that is from everything stretching. It's a bit uncomfortable, but hey, at least I'm not puking 24/7 like last time!!!!!!!
13 weeks 3 days. I'm feeling a bit large already. My students told me that I don't even look pregnant, but I can feel everything shifting upward and squishing my stomach.
I've felt quite out of breath lately. I'll have to ask the OB what he thinks about that on Thursday when I have my appointment.
I'm glad the winter intersession is almost over. I'll be glad to get back to the regular semester schedule finally.
I booked our Disneyland trip for June. I'm soooooo excited! We're staying two nights in the Disneyland Hotel. My sister is going to go with us, so Ron can come for one or both nights, whatever he pleases. The D-land hotel is hooked up to D-land by a monorail. That way, I can go take a nap in the hotel when I get tired. I'm sure I'm going to be hot and exhausted quite a fair bit since I'll be almost 8 months preggo by then.
My mom said she booked her ticket to come down for the birth. I didn't invite her, but I'm glad she is coming. She is a nurse and she's darn good at it. She will be soothing when I'm in need.
I'm so excited for the next u/s in March. I hope everything is ok in there. I just can't help but worry. I guess that's normal though.
I wish it was time for the D-land trip!
So out of breath lately. It's getting a bit worrysome.
DH likes his geometry kids. He says the Algebra students are a bit of a handful.
14 weeks tomorrow.
I saw the OB today. HB was 156 bpm. He found it right away. He gave me some new prenatals. Ug! They are making me fart like a beast!
Bobbie, my mom went to Disney when 8mos pregnant with my brother who will be 21 this year, and um he was born in June, lol. Take it easy.
And about the prenatal farts, so that just may be where mine are coming from.
You are so 14 weeks already~time is flying by!!!
LMAO Michele! Yeah, I think the body goes, "Whoa, what *IS* this stuff!" and tries to fart it out or something.
Ug, the new semester starts today. I'm just soooooo not ready to teach today. I need to get my butt in gear and go make some copies of my syllabus.
I have soooooo much to say.
I've been feeling seriously frustrated with my birthing options. I was pissed off that the two hospitals in town that take my insurance don't allow video taping of the birth, which is super important to me. I was also stressed out with the other option, which is a homebirth. That would cost us $4000.
Then I thought hey, why not call the hospital in the next city over. It'll take us 10 minutes longer to get there, but that is really no big deal. I got ahold of the L & D charge nurse and she was fabulous. I asked her how the hospital felt about video taping and about natural childbirth. Here were her answers:
1) YES, they allow video taping!
2) YES, they most certainly support natural birthing.
3) Their birthing suites are equipped with a bathtub with jets that I'm free to use
4) They have private post partem rooms
5) They are a breast feeding hospital. No bottles or pacifiers unless mom specifically requests it.
6) Skin to skin contact right after birth. No procedures for one hour after birth to allow for bonding and BF-ing.
7) They employ lactation consultants who see every mom and take phone calls and see mom and baby after mom and baby go home.
8 ) They offer childbirth classes, which she highly recommends (Not needed here since we'll be doing hypnobirthing, but good to know!). They include classes for older siblings to understand about the new baby.
9) They allow 3 people in the birthing suite instead of 2 like the other hospital I was supposed to go to. This is important as I would like DH, my mom, and my hypnobirthing doula to be present.
10) She gave me the phone numbers to two OBs who support natural birthing. One has a nurse practitioner who I may see if I'm more comfortable with a woman.
11) She had 3 children au natural.
Then she gave me the phone numbers of her favorite OBs. One works with a female nurse practitioner if I'm more happy with a female.
This will involve calling our insurance carrier and requesting a change of hospital/groups and I'm not looking forward to that adventure, but I'm soooooo happy with the big fat yes to video taping.
Then, another thing came up. DH just started a new job. I'm pretty sure they'll offer him a choice of Kaiser and another insurance. If they offer him Kaiser, then I can go to the Kaiser hospital in town which has the only certified nurse midwife in the city who delivers in a hospital. I'm way excited about that option. I sooooooooo hope his job offers Kaiser and I hope that double coverage isn't a problem.
I also have an appt. with the homebirth midwife tomorrow. I'm kinda sad to go because I feel like I don't want to like her a lot and then not be able to use her.
DH promised that I can have a HB for the next time around if I want it and he'll be fully supportive.
Oh! and I found a yoga studio right by my work! Yay!!!! I ordered an extra long yoga mat from Amazon.com today. :woohoo:
15 weeks 2 days.
3 weeks until gender u/s!!!!!
Holy Moly! This kid is kicking up a storm tonight! I'm enjoying the ride! It's so cute!!!
16 weeks 4 days
17 weeks today. I've been feeling pretty good lately. Although, I think I might be catching a little cold though as I had a sore throat last night and a super stuffy nose. It feels a little bit better today, but I always feel good in the morning.
Ron signed us up with Kaiser through his work. They asked if we were covered by another insurance company and Ron put HealthNet, so I'm wondering what they'll do with that information. I want to see the midwife at Kaiser, but I don't want to have to permanently go to Kaiser. Insurance stuff sucks.
In April, my mom and I are going to tour the hospital I mentioned. We'll see if it's all they said it would be. I'm not holding my breath. I'll have to get a hold of the Kaiser midwife too.
I wonder if I'll ultimately end up with the homebirth. Nobody is in my corner. Nobody but me is rooting for that. It's sad people can't just be supportive. I just say nothing about it anymore. My mom, surprisingly, is the only one that seemed half way accepting of the idea. Maybe cuz she was a wanna-be hippy in the 60's LOL! She still hates wearing bras.
10 days until the big u/s.
I really do hope that the hospital is all that they say it is, and that the insurance works out for you. And yet I would LOVE to see you get the homebirth you want, it's so hard when no one is on your side - I found that it was just easier to keep my mouth shut about most things while pg lol
10 days!!!! SO close!
Hey Chimeroo! Yeah, I've stopped telling family about things for the most part. It has been so ingrained in our minds that the hospital is this magically safe place. It's unfortunate that so many women are harmed with unwanted episiotomies and c-sections because of this myth. I could send them the actual studies about the safety of HB, but I don't think anyone would bother to even read them. Sometimes people just want to think what they think IYKWIM.
Anyways, I spoke to the HB midwife a few nights ago. We had a really good chat. I told her that I'd let her know if we decide on an OB at the baby friendly hospital, the CNM at Kaiser, or a Homebirth probably around April 10th. My mom is coming for the week of spring break and we're going to tour the hospitals. Really, I think I'm touring the baby-friendly hospital just to appease everyone. I already know that I don't want an OB anywhere near me unless medically necessary. In my mind right now it's either Kaiser or a HB and it all depends on whether Kaiser will allow video taping. No video tape? No birth there.
I'm really trying not to get frustrated anymore. Things will work out. They always do.
5 days until big u/s! 6 days if you count the way DH counts LOL!
4 more days. EEEEEEEEE!!!!
#2 is a boy! Yippy! I'm really excited. DH was a bit let down as he wanted a girl, but I was soooooooooooo surprised and tickled! Now for finding a name. This is so weird! I was fully expecting a girl and I had 2 full girls names lined up, but I'm not sure at all about a boy's name. I like Samuel and Wyatt. We'll see.
I'm feeling crappy today. I've got a cold AGAIN and I'm achey all over.
I made pancakes for dinner tonight. MMMMMM, they were soooooo good.
19 weeks today. I feel my little one move a lot. I love that feeling.
I still can't believe that I'll be a mom to 2 boys soon. I'm really excited about that. Lots of baseball games in my future. YAY!
20 weeks 4 days.
I saw the OB yesterday. Listened to the heartbeat. Such a sweet sound. Got another prescription for Zofran and got some prenatal vitamins.
Baby's heartrate was 144 bpm. I weighed 168 lbs. Holy Moly I'm a big Heffer!
Ok, so I've had such a frustrating time figuring out where this baby will be born. I'm sick of calling hospitals, doctors, midwives, and insurance companies. I finally just decided to do a homebirth. I told DH and he said he's got no problem with it. I called the MW and told her it's a go. I felt such a huge sense of relief after that. It was amazing! Not knowing was stressing me out really bad.
Soooo, I'll stick with the OB in order to get all of my meds and tests paid for by insurance, but will be doing the birth with the midwife. The MW will also come once a month for pre-natal visits, so woohoo, I get double the pre-natal care.
Anne, the MW, came for the first home visit yesterday. I love her already. She did all the measurements, we listened to the baby with the doppler, and then we just sat and chatted for an hour. I feel so comfortable with her. When our time was up, I wrote her a check for the deposit. When I handed it to her, I got tickled all over and thought, "OMG! I'm REALLY going to do this! I'm REALLY going to have this baby at home!" Holy cow. Now people will think I'm a nut job. LOL! I don't care. This is best.
Oh, and I'll be doing hypnobirthing too with my hypnobirthing doula who is also a reflexologist.
Crazy, but I'm looking forward to this birth!
So, I was laying on my bed this afternoon and the baby was kicking me like crazy. I looked down at my belly to put my hand where he was kicking and he rolled around and I SAW IT! OMG! I don't remember this happening until way later with my last pregnancy. Last time when DH saw that, he said, "EW! It looks like that scene from that movie where the alien comes out of the woman's stomach."
Today I not only felt the kicks, but SAW them and saw the baby turn. Crazy!
Oh, I forgot to say that we sold our house. YAY! It's all done! What a relief! The new people should be moving in right now. I'm sad because I bought that home on my own. I put a lot of love into it and it's just a closed chapter of my life. I'm glad to see it go to a nice family though!
I'm starting my hypnobirthing class on June 2nd. I'm so excited. The instructor has agreed to be my doula and I couldn't be happier. She knows my MW. She is also a trained reflexologist and that will come in handy when in labor (hopefully).
My mom is coming down August 1st and will stay until August 15th. I sure hope this little one cooperates. I think my mom will really dig this experience.
Today, I'm going to go search in the garage for all of Nate's old clothes. I can't wait to go through that stuff again and look at all of the cute baby clothes he wore. He's grown up so fast. Every day I just kiss him all over because I know one day he won't let me anymore.
Congrats on selling your home, although I can totally see why that would be so emotional.
I am so excited for you and all of the plans you have, you'll have to let us know how you like your hypnobirthing class
Hi Chims! I'm sure I'll journal my hypnobirthing experience. I'm waaaaaaaaaaay excited about it!!!
So today I had just had it with my medical group. I've been having a lot of hip and back pain, so I called up my insurance provider, HealthNet, to ask them if chiropractic services are covered. They said yep, 100%, all you need is a referral from your GP. So, I call up the GP's office and the lady tells me that they can't get me in until mid-JUNE! I was pissed beyond belief. I told her that obviously that is not acceptable. I can't wait 2.5 months in this type of pain just to see the GP for a referral!!!! She was snotty and told me, "Well, we'll get back to you tomorrow and let you know if there is an opening soon." Nobody has called. GRRRRRR.
I'm so sick and tired of this. I could be bleeding from every orifice and they'd tell me that they can see me next week or next month. I have to go to urgent care all the time, which is $35 a visit. I'm starting to think it's a money making scheme.
So, I called up Kaiser and spoke to the lady in benefits. She said since DH has Kaiser through his work and he has the family plan, I am free to see Kaiser doctors. I called up the appt. line and the lady said they'd see me TOMORROW at 3:15 p.m.!!! OMG! I'm so pleased. I just hope the facility isn't skanky.
ugh, that sucks hun ~ it does get a bit tiresome with how bad the bedside manner is with soo many doctors offices these days, they just don't care anymore.
I'm SO GLAD though, that you were able to get in so fast, yay!!!
Well, I went to our local Kaiser. I got right in and the nurse was nice. I had to answer a million questions, which was ok. They found me an appointment with a midwife for next week and I'll see the doctor right after that for an ultrasound. It's odd that the doctor does the ultrasound, but hey, I'm not going to complain. Next week is sooooooooooo much better than "Mid-JUNE."
I'm so glad I'm having a HB though. There were all kinds of people around coughing and sneezing and I hate how hospitals smell. YUCK!
My MIL sent Nate this awesome Easter package which included a baseball cap and some sunglasses. Nate just came running in here with them on and when I saw him, I said, "OMG! You're so cute baby boy!!!!" to which he replied, "YEP! I'm soooooooo cute!"
Oh man, he has such a good sense of humor!
I have ANOTHER F-ing cold! UG! We're only on month 4 of this year and I've had 3 colds so far including this one. What on earth is wrong with me?????? Tonight, I tried to get to bed early. I woke up coughing and puked all over the bed and the floor. Poor DH came running in to see if I was ok and was greeted with that mess. I got up and puked up the rest of my guts over the toilet. As I was doing that DH cleaned up the bedroom. I couldn't believe it. He is so wonderful. You have to really love someone to clean up their puke. From now on, when he aggrivates me, I'll remember this incident. I'll remember what a good DH he is.
I was so happy that I was able to not take my anti-nausea meds for almost a week now. I guess that's out the window. BLAH!
Well, I guess I haven't updated in a while. Bad me.
I went to the doctor this morning. HB is 162. He's lying transverse. I got a refill for my nausea meds. I weigh 174, which Mr. OB said was absolutely fine. The tape measure had me at only 23 weeks, but today is 24 weeks 3 days. That's totally ok. That happend with Nate. The tape measure always had me measuring small and the ultrasounds always had him measuring big. What can ya do?
I'm going for physical therapy on my hip on wednesday. YAY!!! Finally some relief!
I have an u/s this afternoon. I can't wait to see my little dude again! :woohoo:
The ultrasound went well. He's measuring a week and a day ahead (25 weeks, 4 days). That's not surprising as Nate always measured big. She caught him yawning. It was soooooo cute. Unfortunately, the pics she gave me aren't very good. Nothing is worth scanning. Oh well.
The Midwife came for her home visit yesterday. I really like her. She makes me feel so comfortable. She is so supportive and reassuring. She said that my blood pressure, weight, and urine are all normal....good, good, good. We talked about pre-natals and tea. She was happy that I've been drinking raspberry leaf and taking vitamins from the health food store. The vitamins that I picked up have digestive support components and I can really feel them helping me.
Oh, and Ron got to meet her finally and likes her. That's a good thing. I think this birth will be soooooooo much easier on him. He'll have the midwife and the doula here to help him and to tell him what to do.
Nate is doing well. Some days he shows me his belly, tells me that it's big and talks about "his" baby. It's cute. Right now he put a baseball in his underwear, ran in here, and told me to look at his butt. When I did and smiled, he erupted in a huge belly laugh. He is so cute.
I think we've decided on Samuel Alexander. Ron says he likes it. He doesn't change his mind a lot, so I think it will stick. I already call the baby Sam. I think it fits.
26 weeks today and feeling good. I spent all of last week doing awesome on the treadmill. I was doing 3 miles a day. Then, the past 3 days, I've just totally slacked off and not done a thing. ARG! Tonight I downed a whole pizza all by myself and then made cookies. What a piggy I am!!!
Sam is doing well. He's still laying transverse. I can feel him kicking me in his favorite kick spot.
I need to start back doing my yoga again. That always makes me feel so good.
I went to physical therapy for two weeks for my hips. It was suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch a waste of time! She had me doing this tiny little simple exercises that were just worthless. I've been doing those same exercises with 10X the intensity on my pregnancy workout DVD for a while now and doing those same stretches every day after I walk. UG!
I just really want to go to a chiropractor. Maybe I'll have to pay out of pocket. I'm sure it will be worth it. I really want an adjustment on my hips.
I snuck over to see the reflexologist today. AAAAAAHHHHH! My feet and hands feel lots better. He is a total angel!
I can't wait for August. I'm actually looking forward to labor as strange as that sounds. I have such high hopes that it will be a positive experience this time around.
I had a dream last night that I went for another ultrasound and the lady said that I'm having conjoined twins.
Pregnancy causes some really weird dreams!!!!
Feeling good today. Baby is active. I'm almost to the third trimester. I'm looking forward to August, but not to the August heat. It's only May and today was 90 degrees. YUCK!!! We've been having such nice weather and then this! BLAH!!!!
I got so much work done at work today. I feel really good about that!
26 weeks 3 days.
26 weeks 5 days. Insomnia. Droopy eyes. Need sleep. Yawn.
Sam kicks me lots. He tickles me from the inside. Hillarious. I can't wait to see his little face. I wonder if he looks like Nate. I hope so. Nate is adorable.
This darn kid better turn head down. This sideways shit is worrying me.
I think I'll waddle back to bed. It is 3:30 a.m. PST
I love the name you've choosen for him, soo cute!
Ohhh you should get the Peaceful Sleep Now CD from Hypnobabies, it works SO WELL for insomnia, I still use it and my baby is 14 months! lol
Chims, thanks for the suggestion!!! I think I'll order that next week.
I had a terrible time with insomnia the night before last and got about 2 hours of sleep. I made up for it last night though. I feel asleep the moment my head hit the pillow and slept for 10 hours. I'm still sleepy! LOL!!!
I keep feeling like I'm not ready for this baby, probably because I'm not! I need to get the crib out or order a co-sleeper or something! I need to find the boxes of Nate's baby stuff, but they all seem to be missing. I found tons of toddler clothes in the garage, but I can't find all of the newborn/infant stuff. EEEK. We need new carseats, a travel swing, lotions and potions AAAAAAAHHH!!! I need a breast pump. I need a sling. I need to decide which cloth diapers we are using and see if they have a diaper service in my city. I need to call the doula and work out times with her. I need to order some hypnobirthing CD's, a birth kit, and a pool. Gosh, maybe I should put this into a list.
I probably won't have a rocking chair this time around either. Darn. That is the one thing that I really missed last time. Somehow, we just never have room for that.
Ok, I'll worry about this two weeks from now. Next week is my last long week at work. Everything else after that is short short short. Yippee!!!!
I went and had a massage today. OMG!! It felt so good. She did some deep tissue work on my hips and I was in heaven! I saw the chiropractor after that (same office). He was really nice and was very supportive of my homebirth choice!!! He adjusted my lower back and neck and gosh do I feel soooooo much better!!!! It's crazy!!!
