    Default Baby D5! My 5th pregnancy, first journal.

    6w, 2D


    At 25 years old, I am pregnant with my fifth child. My journey to this point has been anything but easy. I was a married and divorced single mom by the age of 20. I was a remarried and widowed mother of 3 by the age of 23. Now, here I sit, 25 and remarried to my widower prince, and couldn't be happier. We also have a step-parent adoption in progress! All 7 of us will have the same last name!



    That BFP is so dang pretty!

    It is all starting to sink in that I am pregnant again and due before my last baby is a year old. Today, I haven't felt too bad. So funny how feeling good worries me half to death. This baby is so wanted and I am so scared I am going to lose it. DH doesn't get it. My mom has no idea I am pregnant again and I feel kinda alone in my fears. I was afraid of this the other 4 times, so I guess it is normal for me.

    I have been intermittently nauseated today. My pants are already non-buttoning. Oh, and I am FATIGUED to the max.
    DS1 had a soccer game today and DS2 threw an EPIC tantrum right as the 4th quarter was starting. He is 3 years old, so no shocker there. I ended up taking the younger 3 to the van to sit. DS2 screamed for about half an hour. At least 4 isn't so bad.

    DS1's biological father signed the adoption papers yesterday. In GA, he has 10 days to change his mind. Our lawyer should be filing everything in 9 days!! I cried when I read the email saying that he had the signed papers in his hand. I have been waiting 6 YEARS for that moment. It was awesome!

    Is it possible to be feeling round ligament pains already? I seriously don't remember feeling this quite so early last time. Maybe it's the back to back pregnancies.
    It felt like I was about to puke D5 up this morning. I dry heaved a lot. Thankfully my vitamins didn't come up or I would have had to take them again. The vitamins are 6 a day -- 2 in the morning, 2 at lunch time, 2 at night. Sometimes, I miss the lunch dose. They are "natural" and supposedly better than the prescription ones. I feel really good since I started them last Wednesday.

    My parents will be here Friday. We plan on going out for a nice dinner with them so we can break our big news. I can then go Facebook public with the news. I need to add my ticker to my page.

    I finally took my first belly pic. Most of that is leftover from Derek, but it is kinda firm.


    Nothing going on today. I went to bed at 9:30 last night

    So, I haven't been on in like a week. We had something like 13 viruses on the computer. Anyway, I had a doctor's appointment on Wednesday. I got dismissed from those other morons. I found an awesome midwife that will do parallel care for a home birth. Anyway, I go in, pee in a cup, and she is going over my last 4 births. I told her all about my last birth and she said that she will see me as long as I want. She also ordered an on the spot dating scan.


    Baby was measuring a week behind. I am not worried because Derek was as well. The baby had an awesome heart beat of 160.
    My parents were here all last week. 7 days straight. I am so exhausted.

    The step parent adoption paperwork has been submitted. The kids could legally be Mark's as early as July around his birthday. The lawyer is filing everything Thursday. We will probably get a court date then too. Mark just needs a background check and that is all.

    The pregnancy is still going awesome. I am super exhausted though.

    I am so exhausted. And slightly queezy. I ate some leftover chicken from last night and that has really helped.
    Had a great Mother's Day. Sunday is DH and my very first wedding anniversary. I love that man. I have 2 weeks until my next doctor's appointment. Hopefully, we will be able to hear the heartbeat with the doppler. Nothing else too exciting going on.

    I had my first appointment with my home birth midwife. She is so awesome. I have been so worried about my water intake and thought for sure my urine would be that usual gross dark yellow color. Not today! Urine perfection. And the pH was 6. I wonder if the urine pH and gender theory will be true. I am already guessing boy and the alkaline urine supports that. Mark is still wanting to wait until the baby is born to know. I like to plan so that idea makes me crazy.
    Beth also tried to find the heart beat with the doppler. No such luck yet. Hopefully, when I go to the MEDwife next Wednesday, she can find it. Or, give me another quick peak. Either one is cool with me.

    Yesterday was my 1st wedding anniversary. We did a 145 mile motor cycle road trip to the North GA mountains. It was so awesome.
    Here are some pics even though they don't really do it justice.






    FOOOOOD


    Year old frozen wedding cake. It really wasn't THAT bad.



    I am so in love. I really think I will keep him

    I am 12 weeks today, so I figured finding the heartbeat would be no biggie. Well, she couldn't find it so that meant "Free picture" as she put it.
    I am unsure what the heart rate was, but the baby was flipping and dancing so much that she couldn't even get it. The pics kinda suck because Baby wouldn't be still and smile for the camera.




    And, I have only gained 2 pounds since last month!
