    Default #2 due June 30th 2003

    I am so exited to be doing this journal. We have been ttc a second child for over a year and with my second dose of clomid it worked!!
    I will be 6 weeks tomorrow and I can't beleive how much more nervous I am this time than I was with my first. Maybe it is because with my first I didn't find out until I was 7 weeks and I had a dr appointment right away this time I found out at 4 weeks and don't see the dr until 10 weeks. It is really driving me crazy!! I am also worried because I feel so good! haha Can you imagine someone actually wanting to be sick so I know everything is ok. It should be starting any time now.
    I am also already showing!! I can't beleive it. I didn't show with ds until 4 months and I am only 6 weeks it's unreal!

    6 weeks 4 days

    wow was I the one that was complaining less than a week ago that I had no syptoms? haha I should have known better because m/s has hit full forse! It started with being nauseas a little here and there but now it is constant. It's even worse in the evenings but I guess that is a blessing because I run a daycare and I am still ok enough to play and take care of the kids.
    I am so tired though! When all the kids nap I have to rest also or I just can't make it. I can't wait until the second trimester!! I want to be really showing and be able to feel the baby kick. Maybe it won't last as long as it did with ds. I can hope!!

    7 weeks and the morning sickness is here full force! I knew I wouldn't be lucky enough to skip it but I had forgotten how bad it is! I am sick all day long and even in the middle of the night when I have to go to the restroom. I have been trying to eat a little more but even crackers are making me sick. I heard pinnaple juice helps so I got some and it helped a little at first but now just gives me a headache.
    I am wondering how I am going to survive the next month until it goes away? I can't hardly function at all!

    I know it's been a long time since I wrote but i have been so sick I haven't been able to do anything. I have also had a headache for 3 weeks straight. It got so bad I couldn't see and the pain was intolerable. I called the dr and was given meds for a sinus infection. While the horrible pain did go away I still have daily headaches and am so sick. I can't beleive how much worse it is this time.
    Tomorrow is my first dr appointment and it is about time. I have waited 6 weeks to get in and hope to hear the heartbeat although I know it's early.

    My first appointmnet went really well. It took a long time but most of it was paperwork and such. The good news is that we got to hear the heartbeat!! It was so wonderful and made this so much more real!! I actually feel pregnant now. Although I should anyway because I am now wearing maternity full time!! haha I can't beleive how much sooner I am showing this time than last.
    Also I actually feel a little better. I am still sick but I at least don't want to crawl into a hole! lol

    11 weeks today

    I am doing better and I think the m/s is starting to end. It isn't gone completly but I am feeling much better and I even had 2 days without a headache although it's back today. On the other side I have been really having some problems with back pain. Part is the sciatic(sp) nerve in my lower back that shoots pain down my legs and makes me limp but the other is like I pulled something in between my shoulder blades. My dh was joking that I look like an old lady because I limp around and move very slow. At least it comes and goes so it isn't all the time.

    I am doing really good. I can't beleive how big I am. I look like I should be 6 months along. My boobs are are already 2 sizes bigger. I was hoping this time they wouldn't get so big so my belly would show more but no they are going to try to keep up again. haha
    I go to the dr. again next week and I am very anxious for that. I thought for sure I felt the baby kick a couple days in a row a couple weeks ago but nothing since. I can't wait until I feel kicking more often so I will know for sure everything is ok!

    I am doing really well although I have just gotten over the stomach flu which was no fun. I had my 14 week appointment and it went well. She heard the heartbeat right away which was nice. I am so excited that in a month is my sonos and we will get to find out the sex. Dh and I have a bet going on of what it will be I say a boy and he says a girl. We want a girl but I just having a feeling we will have another little boy. I have been feeling the baby kick more and that is great. It still isn't everyday or even every other day but I am pretty sure it's going to be a lot more active than Tristan was because when I do feel it it's going crazy! haha

    I am so bummer because I haven't felt the baby move or anything in what seems like forever. Ok it has only been about a week but you can imagine the tricks my mind is playing. I have even been laying more on the side I had been feeling it in hope of waking it or something. haha I know it is still just way too early to feel the baby all the time but I wish I did. I remember feeling this way with ds too until I could feel him move every day I would worry that something was wrong. I bet a lot of the pregnant ladies feel that way too.

    I did go to the dr because of worrying but more for the pain in my back. It was so bad that I could barely move and was constant. I was hoping it would be a kidney infection or something but it turned out to be just back pain that they can't do anything about. The meds that would help I can't take while I am pregnant. The dr did say if it continued to be this bad I could get physical theropy or go in the hospital. I really have to work and bedrest scares me more than anything. She did ask if I was picking anything heavy up. That is so funny because I have a 2 yr old and run a day care so I am picking kids up all day. The day after I went to the dr would you beleive the baby has been kicking like crazy! What is up with that? Dh even got to feel the baby kick and I am only 16 weeks.

    I just got back from a stupid visit with our local health dept. and when going through everything for me and ds she tells me that on her scale my pre-pregnancy weight puts me just barely at normal almost high. I was 5'8 and a half and 140lbs. I fit nicely into a size 6. Err so now a size 6 is almost overweight? That does not even count me in how much I have gained now, which is alot. I am over the obese scale which is rediculus(sp). Not to mention the fact that not only did she mess up my finger prick for a blood sample and have to do it twice she messed up ds's too!!! I am glad this is not where I am getting my medical attention from but I am just so mad to be told that I am overweight or almost even when I am thin!! Later when I was talking to my mom we realised she had me at 5foot1. I was just so upset and ds was crying throught the whole visit which he rarely does. err I know that I have gained too much weight already and am so upset by it but I just don't know what to do. I don't snack I rarely have pop and I go to bed starving every night. I was really crying to dh last night because I worry about losing the weight again. I am starting my water aerobics class tonight and we talked about ways to eat healthier, I just don't know. I don't remember if I mentined this before but a couple weeks ago I was talking to my MIL about some clothes given to me that I could wear after I had the baby and lose the weight and she said "oh, you think you will lose it". I gained 60 lbs last time and lost it all so why would this be different? My hormones must be going wacky!

    I wanted to add that I had anorexia in high school and could go days without eating at all. I was very very thin, but I always felt fat so this has been a bad struggle for me. Kind of ironic that someone that was sickly thin before is now the one who had gained the most weight.

    18 weeks 1 day

    I am counting down until my sono in 8 days!! I can't wait. It seems the closer it gets the further away it seems! lol On the good side I have been able to dream about buying little girl things. If we end up having a boy I won't be able to do that anymore so I should take advantage of it while I can. I wonder if it is just me but I really want a girl but think it will most likely be a boy. I am nervous that I will start crying or something. With Tristan I thought I was having a girl and when we had our sono I was actually upset. I love ds to death but have always dreamed of a little girl. This will most likely be our last child and the thought scares me so bad that I will never have a little girl. Although My sister wanted a little boy really bad and has 3 wonderful girls so you never know.

    Here is a recent belly pic at 18 weeks.

    Had my sono today and it went well. The placenta is low but it was that way with Tristan as well and it really doesn't matter since I am having a c-section. I couldn't see the screen very well and the tech only gave us one picture. We found out we are having another boy. I did so well until we got to the office and were alone and I just broke down. I will never have a little girl and I am very sad. This does not mean I won't love this baby but I have lost all excitment. Everything will be the same. Leftover clothes, same bedding set with the same border still on the wall. I am trying not to become depressed but I have been crying all day.

    Ok, I am done having my pity party from yesterday. If I never have a girl then it must be for a reason. All I really had to do to not be upset is look at Tristan. I love him so much just the way he is. Braden and I deceided to come up with something new to do to decorate the room and we are thinking safari. When he's a little older that is. I feel bad for being so upset yesterday but I had expected it. I let myself morn for the fact I will never do pink or dresses and now I will just be happy with my wonderful son and the new baby in me. Besides who could possible not want that wonderful baby growing in them when they feel it kick? He was really kicking last night and all of a sudden it didn't matter. It was this baby in me I love.

    I am feeling pretty good except for a cold that is lasting forever. The baby is moving daily now but he really isn't a big mover like I thought he'd be. Braden hasn't gotten to feel him very much becuase this one loves the mornings but braden did say he felt the baby really good in the middle of the night while I was sleeping.

    I have a horrible rash from going to swim class and it is really annoying. The itching is bad enough but I don't want to give the class up.

    I went and saw my sister this last weekend and she was amazed at how big my tummy is. I am much bigger than last time and look further along than 5 months. It makes me wonder just how big I will get.

    I had my regular checkup last week and it was just really fast. We did take Tristan to this one and while he didn't get the heartbeat sound he kept saying the dr was poking mommies baby belly. haha
    Only 3 weeks until we get our 3d/4d sono so we are excited about that!
    Not much going on really. I am getting more tired again and have been going to bed at 9 and trying to catch a little cat nap when the kids are sleeping during the day. I think I have hit the boredom stage because I'm not really excited but I am sick of being big and moving so slow. I have a feeling the last few months are really going to drag. At least it is starting to get warmer so maybe my cabin fever will go away.

    25 weeks today

    I am having a hard time sleeping again. I was hoping that part would hold off just a little longer. haha I just feel so huge I can't stand it. I think this must be some pregnancy induced thing but I really can't stand to even look at myself in the mirror. To me the pregnancy part doesn't cover the fact that the rest of me is so fat too! Everyone say oh you are pregnant it's ok, but I don't think it's ok. I was thin to begin with at a size 6 but I was always compulsive about my weight even then. Now here I am unable to diet and I have gained 40lbs!!! I'm not kidding 40lbs!! I am so embarrassed and disgusted I can't stand it. I don't mind the belly it's the rest. My back is even fat!! When I walk my thighs touch!! yuck! I thought that since I gained alot last time(60lbs) and lost it that I would be more prepared this time. I'll have to have dh take a picture of me so I can put it in. I have so far refused any but belly pics. I am so scared that I will end up gaining even more than 60 this time because I have over 3 months left. I also wonder how I can make it that long. I don't even want to go into public anymore because I am so embarrassed of the way I look. The worst is that I don't snack or eat bad things. I had signed up for a water aerobics class but I am so allergic to the water I can't go. I worry about losing the weight too. Everyone said I lost the weight from ds quickly but it didn't feel that way to me. It took a good 5 or 6 months to be close to normal. I have heard it's even harder the second time. I wonder if the way I am feeling is normal? Every time I go to the dr I make a comment about how much weight I am gaining and they don't seem to think it's that big of a deal. How can it not be? Did I mention I have a double chin!!! errr I just don't want to be seen like this. I hope these feeling go away and this is just a phase.

    27 weeks today

    I have my 3d/4d sono on Friday and I am very excited to be able to see the baby again! We hope to get a really good pic because we haven't really gotten one yet. I have been having a hard time getting to sleep but thats pretty common. I was kind of worried over the weekend because I felt like I was leaking and very wet but luckily I posted on the boards about it and it is more common than I thought. It's great to have others to share your concerns with. I am pretty sure my bh's have started up although they are more painful than I remember them being. I pay atteniotn to every little sign my body makes because I am worried about being put on bedrest like I was last time. Tristan has never been watched by anyone other than the grandparents and I have no idea what we would do if I got put on bedrest. I don't even know why I am worrying because nothing has gone wrong with this pregnancy and everything is right on track.
    I am also feeling a little better about my weight gain. Most likely due to the fact that I am not gaining a lot and kinda staying put for a few weeks feels good. The weather is nicer and being outside more has also been lifting my spirits.
    I have to take Tristan to my dr appointment on Friday where I do the glucos screening and have to drink the stuff then wait an hour. I sure hope he does ok and doesn't have a fit or something! haha Should be interesting!
