Busy day cleaning
I got started early this morning cleaning the kitchen and cleaned out the fridge and pantry then I tackled my bedroom closet, came out with 2 big bags of clothes to donate and really need to do more. I needed room to hang up the maternity clothes I have now. Then cleaned out baby's room down to a clean slate, plus did lots of luandry...all before being to work at 11a.
I feel good for the most part, but haven't really slept well the last 2 nights or so. I surprised myself with my energy boost this morning, but it was stuff I knew I needed to do and kept putting off.
My daughter was disapointed we changed her travel dates too. She's really looking forward to her visit. I have to get her room ready too, clean bed, dust and go through her closet too. Make it look and smell fresh.
Okay that's it for now, I'm glad were closing up shop at 2p. It's dead around here, a total waste of an afternoon.
Well I've had a headache since last night, thought I might have been past that. Tylenol hasn't helped much. Oh well. Other wise I feel good.
I'm in the market for a good breast pump, one that is good but won't break the bank. Last time, 10 years ago, I rented one from the hospital because the EvenFlow someone gave me hurt when I used it. So I rented from the hospital for 4 months and it was a lifesaver. This time I want to pump/breastfeed longer. Anyway I figure I still have time, I think I'm going to wait at least 2 more weeks to buy anything. That's when I'll have my U/S and know to buy pink or blue.
Work is slow today but was busy earlier this week, it was good.
Can't believe I'm almost 16 weeks, 4 months, wow! How time flys.
Well today is a good day for the most part...having hot flashes though...nothing to do with the fact that it's hot outside. Airconditioning hasn't helped. Freeze pop is all I can say.
Well nothing new to write until my doctor appointment Thursday, June 7th.
So that's all...maybe I'll stick my head in the freezer. :icecream:
Had my monthly doctor's visit. It went really well. Baby's heartbeat is 158 and strong. My weight she said a I gained 1/2 pound. I asked the nurse if it was okay that I really haven't gained any weight, she said it was fine and measured me and said I was measuring almost 17 weeks, I said that's becaue that's about were I am. Course the chart has me at 15.5 because of my first ultra sound. I never changed my due date because I know how long I've been pregnant.
So I'm so excited now I have my big u/s date Tuesday June 12th at 8:00am they said to arrive with a full bladder, hope I don't have to sit too long in the waiting room. DH will get to go with me because it's before the shop opens at 9. He's excited too, this will be the first appointment he will get to go with me.
Other than all that I feel pretty good, had a headache last night, so I went to bed early and put a cold pack on my head. Seemed to help as I'm okay this morning so far.
I'm starving today though, can't seem to get enough food.
Well I will write again on Tuesday with my big news, PINK or BLUE!
Ultra sound Results
Well today was our big day, Dh and I went into Radiology this morning early...before the sun comes up for me. I drank a tall cup of regular coffee, just wanted to make sure my bean was a jumping.
The tech that was in there with us was very sweet and took some good pictures, but my bean was a jumping bean and wouldn't sit still. It was so funny had me laughing uncontrolably. Well she announced we have a baby GIRL! Her name will be Joy Elizabeth. Joy after my MIL and Elizabeth just because I loved how they go together.
Now I can talk to her and she can get to know her name...it just all becomes so real now. I'm starting to feel her move but sometimes I go days and don't feel anything. I'm just so excited! Another baby girl. Amy my oldest is going to be so surprised when I tell her on Friday.
This is a happy, happy day :jumpingbeans:
I finally went to get my DD. She was so surprised to find out that she was going to be a big sister, her little eyes got so big. I think she thought I was joking. She was cute and then I asked her what she wanted a baby brother or a baby sister. She ofcourse said twice that it didn't mater. But I made her tell me which she would prefer. She broke down finally and said she would like a baby sister (which I knew she would say) and said well guess what it's a baby sister. Her eyes poped out again. She didn't believe me. It was just so cute and so special.
She has kept me busy since we got home on Saturday. She has a way of talking my ear off, I just love it. I miss her so much when she's not here. We started reading to the baby at night. My DD picks some of her favorite books from when she was little and I let her read them aloud. She's funny she keeps patting my belly too. I think she's becoming a little mother hen. Funny girl.
Pregancy wise I feel good, things are good. Just can't believe I'm 18 weeks already. :jumpingbeans:
With summer time in full swing, I have struggled lately with hot flashes. I feel like I'm melting.... :( Seems to start from the inside and then bubble out. I'm not one to swet but now I am, can forget the deoderant. Yuck!
Just got back from a trip to grandma's house. It was nice to visit and see everyone. DD and I stayed a few days. I ate like a pig while we were there. Too much good stuff within my arms reach.
Well I'm offically 20 weeks, half way. Can't believe it. DH got to feel the baby move for the first time last night. He said it was weird and didn't know what he was feeling. He said he felt her move though, he thought it was cool. It was the first time I've felt her move on the outside it's usually only on the inside.
I feel good, alittle tired from the trip but good overall. I measured my belly around with a tape measure and it came in at 41 inches, up from my original of 31. I have a doctor's appointment on Friday morning, it will be intresting to see if I've gained any weight this month.
I have more pictures but I'm having trouble with the size. I'll try to post later on today or tommarow.
I'm having a day that I feel very irratable. Not happy with anyone. I feel crabby. :(
Well, we had a nice 4th of July. Went to a movie and had ice cream at a local shop and went to the fireworks last night. They were nice, my DD gave me attitude so I had to put her in her place. Probably the first time this summer we really had a problem so I can't complain. Personally I think she was over tired because it was a late night for her and past her bed time.
Well I'm hoping I feel better later. I'm starting to get hot too. Blah!
Well I had my doctors appointment last week. DD got to hear the baby's heartbeat. She was so excited just to be there. I have offically gained 4lbs. But the way I'm eating lately I'll make up for all the other months of no weight gain, I'm just hungry all the time.
Well things are moving along, finally ordered Joy's crib. Should be here in a week or two. I'm hoping it will come in before DD goes back to her dads. We've decided to put a twin bed in Joy's room too, so late at night I'll have a place to nurse her comfortably with out dogs jumping all over or getting in the way not to mention the dog hair on the bed. I'm going to get a rocker/glider too which will be good for the daytime feedings. Plus then we'll already have the twin bed when she's ready for it. I really liked the idea. I'm just excited because we are finally doing something to prepare.
Anyway, baby Joy is very busy these days moving about. Somedays are more than others, but it feels like she's a wiggle worm right now. She plays games with me already. I want to feel her move on the outside of my tummy, I've only felt it 2 or 3 times, when I feel her moving I'll place my hand there and she stops moving. So I'll wait....again she's wiggling all over, I put my hand there and she stops. It's kind of funny. This went on for a while the other night.
Okay can't think of anything else right now. :)
