This would be my second baby, my first however was 10 years ago, a healthy beautiful baby girl. Can't believe she's not a baby anymore. She doesn't know about this one yet. Last time it worked out better not telling her because then I didn't have to explain the loss. She lives in a differant state with her dad, due to a very liberal judge. She loves visiting, she was here over spring break and will be back this summer when I won't be able to hide it from her. I've been working on her dad to just let her move here but we'll see. Plus praying for God's direction and provision for her reloction. I believe God told me 3 years and we're more than half way there, any extra prayers are welcome. Her dad is a single guy with no sense of responsiblity.
Anyway, being so long ago I feel as though this is a first pregnancy all over again. I never had m/s with her either and had a picture perfect pregnancy, ofcourse I was 10 years younger. I really don't remember every detail of the pregnancy, just that I thought I was the cat's meow. I loved to look at myself in the mirror and to rub my expanding belly. I haven't gotten there yet with this one. I just feel tired, mild cramping sometimes, and can cry at the drop of a hat sometimes. I did that this morning. I don't remember how much by boobs hurt last time compared to this time, this time they are sensitive but not painful. Then there's my nose and the mucus forming factory that has set up shop, non stop.
Last night we went to a friends house for dinner and went down a winding road, and for the first time felt really woozy, once I had something to eat I was okay, then we got back in the car and woozy again. I couldn't wait to get home and go to sleep, it was a very long day for me.
Today has started out okay, just that my pants are getting tight and I can't button them. Monday will be 10 weeks. Too small for maternity clothes but too big for my normal clothes. Time to shop, maybe later today, yeah I love to shop. If I have the energy.
Everything does happen for a reason, and I trust she will be here soon.
I'm married to a great guy too, this is his first baby and he's very excited. Last time I was pregnant and lost it, I think it was harder on him than it was me. Then we TTC for just over a year so this time he can hardly control himself. I suggested that we not tell anyone yet but he had to tell his mom, then right before Easter I had an U/S that saw we had a heart beat and we've told a few more people, mostly his family. I'm waiting until after my Dr. appt. Monday to really share with my family.
Things have changed over the years, it's amazing...technology. I think I like the journal thing. I'm excited to have this journey.
Well I wanted to go shopping for clothes yesterday but just too tired. However, my SIL had a baby in February and wanted to give me some clothes so while my MIL was there (out of state) to meet her new grandson, she packed up some clothes for me. She brought them in to me at our shop. I couldn't wait to go home and try them on. They fit...thank goodness, because I needed something. Some are too big for now but some fit perfect as long as I don't gain any weight in my butt or hips, they will work for now I guess.
Okay that's it for now I guess. I'm starting to fade happens every afternoon about now.
Had my doctor's visit today, 10 weeks 3 days. Got to hear the heartbeat myself, the nurse said the h/b per minute was 175. Seems real high but she said it's normal. I haven't gained any weight but lost instead. I told her I haven't had any m/s and I'm eating, she said it was nothing to worry about.
It's funny how when you go to the doctor all you time is really with the nurse and the doctor visit is really short, you spend more time waiting than anything else.
Oh well, I'm excited now that I heard the h/b, I'm going to make phone calls tonight. Now the pregnancy will be public knowledge.
Well I finally went to the store to buy/look at some clothes. Nothing looked like my style or they were long sleeve, which at this point would be too hot to wear. Very disapointed . Shopping around here is very limited and I may have to venture an hour away to find something better. I will be traveling to Florida in about a month, I may just wait until then or maybe not.
Well my husband and I are getting ready for a builders trade show this weekend, I'm looking forward to it. Getting brochures and products together, then there's designing our booth and getting the promotional items. Fun! I'm just worried about it being long days for me and being totally exhausted in the end.
Otherwise I feel good. I'm never really in the mood to eat anything but eat alittle because I know I need to eat. It's weird, like I'm feeling full all the time. And when I do eat I'm full fast. Cravings have been for grilled cheese with tomato, I've had that for a couple of days now. Yummm!
