December 31, 2008: Positive Pregnancy Test - Happy New Year to us!

January 9, 2009: Went in for check-up and PAP because of abdominal pain got surprise ultrasound to make sure everything was ok.
March 9, 2009: Heard Heartbeat 140 BPM - scheduled ultrasound for March 12
March 12, 2009: Ultrasound - It's a GIRL! - 140 BPM
April 6, 2009: Missed Appointment - have to reschedule - I totally forgot!
May 7, 2009: Finally Scheduled a check-up - Heard Heartbeat 140 BPM - scheduled ultrasound for May 12 - everything fine with me and the baby - stomach measured good - lost a pound though - scheduled glucose test for June 4 along with next check up.
May 12, 2009: Ultrasound - GIRL! - Brain is developing good as well as everything else, saw four chamber heart and my son told us that there was a bat in there with HIS baby. (that's what he thought the beating heart was.) - 140 BPM - Baby wieghs app. 1 pound 7 ounces. - She was very stubborn and didn't want to show us she was a girl, we finally got her to move though!
June 4, 2009: Doctor's Appt. and Glucose Test today, they had to take blood from the viens in my hand. Everything is fine. Heard Heartbeat - 136 BPM. My belly is measuring good even though I am losing weight. I have lost 9 pounds since I had my first appt. From now on I will be going every two weeks, and I am officially in my third trimester! MY Glucose Test results came back - my sugar is fine but still anemic.
June 23, 2009: My belly wasn't quite measuring where they would like it to be so I had an ultrasound to check growth. I have officially lost 10 pounds since my first appointment. The baby is measuring good all organs and the head are the right size but estimated weight is lower than expected. GIRL!
July 16, 2009: I didn't gain but I also didn't lose any more weight! Heard Heartbeat - 150 BPM. Another ultrasound because my belly still isn't growing enough. This time though she is growing more she has gained 3 pounds in 2 weeks according to ultrasound weight estimations. She isn't as far behind as she was, hopefully next appt. we will both be on target! GIRL!
July 30, 2009: I lost 2 pounds, but my belly is growing good so no ultrasound and the baby is fine. Heartrate 140 bpm. They checked my cervix, still closed, mucus plug intact, and the baby is still high even though she feels like she is about to fall out some days! My midwife thinks she is head down but she said we will do an ultrasound when I get closer to the due date to be sure she has turned the right way.
August 6, 2009: I gained 3 pounds, and that is after being sick all week! My belly is growing good and the baby is good. Her heartrate was 152 bpm today! No ultrasound and they didn't do a vaginal exam like they were going to because I had my son with me and had been having no problems!
August 13, 2009: I lost 4 pounds but my belly is growing good so they aren't worried. The baby is head down and hasn't dropped yet. My cervix is still completely closed. Only 2 weeks to go until my due date!
August 19, 2009:

Guessing boy... Yari, Sam, and Jen
Guessing girl... Becky, Jana, Mo, Eva, Trina, Chadae', Christy, and Rachel

Notes to self:

~First sign nipple change and sensitivity.
~Faint BFP 10dpo. Clear BFP 12dpo.
~Started showing around 7w.
~Felt movement early - around 15-16w.
~Lots of swelling in heat and humidity.
~Very tired throughout.
~Nesting. Remember the dresser.
~Normal for movement to decrease the last week or so.
~Water broke 36w2d. Be prepared next time!

~Pitocin contractions horrible. Avoid if at all possible.
~Laboring down *worked*! Next time try to wait while crowning. And ask for mirror.
~Felt very out of it. Speak up anyway.
~Room in with baby. Nurse often. Say 'no' to nipple shield.

~PP bleeding lasted a good 5 weeks. Beware pad 'diaper rash'.
~Perineum took a good 2-3 weeks to feel better.
~Swelling took a good 2-3 weeks to go down.
~Frequent nursing means less engorgement.

Beyond PP:
~Normal for baby to poo less at 1 month.
~Normal for milk to regulate at 2 months.
~Warm compresses and 'upside down' nursing clear plugged ducts.
~DTD still hurts 2 months later. Lots of lube helps.
~DTD finally getting less painful after 3.5 months!
~Keep the baby on the routine at all costs!

Under Construction: the Nursery
And so... The plan is foiled... SHE'S HERE! :eek:

New Plan:
get it done before she goes to college Wink
(or we have the next one! :eek:)


In progress...

Pics are now up on the new baby's March 2010 space - (here) :D.
