This is a sopy and paste frommy other entries..
This is so exciting. Two days ago my pregnancy was confirmed. I'm going to be someone (else's) mother. DH and I are hoping for a girl, and based on the verdict of my resident baby psychic (aka my DD) we are gonna get her. I know we should choose a boy's name also but boy's names arent easily agreed upon in this house
The girls name is pretty set:
Gabriella Nicole (unless she doesn't "look" like a Gabi)
All seems well so far, outside of an overabundance of MS. First baby appt is on May 6th My DS' 2nd birthday.
How silly of me! I forgot to give you all an intro!
I am Di (5 weeks 3 days pregnant). a Debt Consolidation specialist. I am 25years old. My DH is Ricky, age 24. We have been married since April 17th, 1999. I have 4 DD and 1 DS, ages 10,8,4,3,2 and my DS is the baby (for now.. Till lil one comes along)
We are all very anxious for the lil Miss(ter)s arrival. s/he is due 12/3/03
**5 Weeks, 5 Days**
You know, one would think that after having 5 children that I would have everything I needed for this one.. WRONG! I think there is more that I need than what I have. And I was informed not long ago that later on in the pregnancy, I get a diaper party as that is apparently customary for the 6th child. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be a mom to six. And I never thought I would still be nervous and paraniod over every little cramp and pain.
Today DH and I switched our two main rooms around. We moved our comp into the living roon and our loveseat(for reading on) into the dining room, which is where the bookshelf is. It looks nice that way, surprisingly. I have always thought of the dining room as two separate rooms anyways. Looking at both sides is like looking at two different worlds. DH has been nesting like mad this weekend, which only means one thing.. When I'm 37 weeks pregnant and on mat leave, he will come home one day to the whole house being rearranged.
I go back to work tomorrow after some very nice and relaxing time off. Not only do I go back but I will be working Monday thru Saturday, until further notice.. Oh joys!
Well, that's it for now. Not much else to report.~~More later~~
To my lil bellybug~ I feel so blessed that I was chosen to be your mommy. I am counting the days till you arrive!
Plenty of heartburn lately. I went to Motherhood last night. Wow they have cute clothes!! A lil bit pricey, but cute nonetheless.
I found out today that my job is basically gonna screw me because I'm pregnant. I'm gonna miss time for Dr's appts and I wont get my higher rate of pay for whatever weeks I have an appointment. It's crazy and stupid, IMO.
At any rate, we have decided on Care Bears for a theme, incase I haven't said that before.
I am sooooooooo tired lately it's not even funny. I need to quit these late nights!
Finally a day off from work!! YAY! This will be a once a week occurrance unfortunately. It seems to be going so slow. My carpal tunnel is resurfacing worse than ever. (it pretty much lays dormant with a small attack here and there when I am not preg) It's gotten so bad that I don't even get pain anymore, now it's pain AND tingling which in my line of work is not good.
I keep getting this feeling that something is not "normal".. I don't mean that in a bad way.. Just that this wont be a typical pregnancy for me.. and I don't wanna say why cause speaking the words brings life to them.. LOL so maybe if I keep it to myself everything will be normal(who am I kidding?? That stuff never works)..
We have the house tore up now rearranging stuff for baby's arrival.. I know it may be a little premature, but we like to be prepared.. Less to do later
**6 weeks 6 days**
I didn't sleep worth a durn last night, so I called off work today. MS is in high gear once again I forgot to mention earlier that I bought my first baby outfit last week It's the cutest little thing! I forgot babies come out that small! Anyways, it's a little pink outfit (cause Amber the baby psychic says baby is another sister for her and she hasn't been wrong yet.. she is 3 for 3!) with Pooh and Piglet on the top lookin down into a hole and it says "we see you" in embriodery. I love it. I think we will bring Gabi home in it. And in the event that Amber is wrong, it will make a great shower gift
Lots to do today. Number one on the list is getting used to this new format
**7 weeks 2 days**
Well today is the 4th anniversary of the day DH and I got married. It seems like longer tho :P Tonight for the first time in 3 yrs, we have a sitter. We're going to a steakhouse for dinner and then off to the theater to catch a movie. I just hope this nausea curbs itself so I can enjoy my meal If not, I guess I can just tell myself I am suffering it for a good cause. Lately I have had the oh-so-yummy metallic taste in my mouth in the mornings. Baby has given me a total of 5 mins from when I wake up to brush it outta my mouth before I end up getting sick. I think this is gonna be a long road ahead.. But I don't mind. The end reward will be GREAT!!
**7 weeks 4 days**
I don't know what happened to me yesterday but I just felt like death warmed over. I was so weak and dizzy and crappy feeling. I took a nap and everything. When I woke up I felt less crappy, but then MS kicked back into high gear. The idea of me finally being pregnant again is havin trouble sinking in. I just can't believe it sometimes. And I am now kicking myself for gettin rid of all my baby stuff when Brendan was growing out of it. (isnt that the way it always goes?) I know it sounds like I am always *****y (atleast it does to me) but I'm not. I am loving being pregnant, just it's off to a rocky start this time.. All my readers bear with me please.. LOL I promise it will get better
**8 weeks 1 day**
Well, little one, I'm not so sure you're just a "one" anymore. I have been feeling flutters of movement ever since Easter (1-3 per day) and I have never felt them this early before. I go to the doctor on May 6th and I am sure she will schedule me for a u/s.. I am a lil excited of the possibility of two. And as always, I will take what He gives me and be thankful and blessed.
I told my father we were expecting for the last time and he had no kind words to say, but that is just like him. This baby will be loved by many, with or without his "blessing". Morning sickness and nausea are still in high gear, infact I have been nauseated for the last 15 hours straight. Can't wait till this subsides in (hopefully) the next few weeks.
We have finally agred upon a boy's name (and a second girl's name, justtttt incase) Now our names are: Gabriella Nicole, Victoria Rose and Jonathan James. Hopefully noone (dh) will change his mind anytime soon on liking those names, cause I think they are all great!
Wow I can't believe I am almost 9 weeks pregnant already. I guess it's not going as slow as I thought it was. However, my first Dr. Appt (which is on May 6) is taking forever to get here. I really wish it would hurry! I want an ultrasound! The feeling that there is more than one baby growing inside me is so strong.. (Maybe I am just going nuts) But I am not the only one who feels it! My mother, my best friend, a friend of mine whom I havent seen in 4 years (up until a week ago).. Practically everyone. Everyone except Amber, who, tho she was right on with Gender each and every time of my last three pregnancies(which is all she's been around for) has err'd in the number inside.. Every time.. She said KEnna was twin girls, Mattie was twins, and Brendan was twin boys So now what does she say? "no momma, there's only one baby in there". That kinda makes me rethink things too.
Fortunately, DH is bracing himself and gaining acceptance in the case that we are havin more than one. I kind of hope that I am havin more than one (you can say I'm nuts-go ahead). Either way, DH is gettin "fixed" after this pregnancy. This is my final pregnancy . no more.. ever. That's kind of an odd realization for me, but I have plenty of time to accept that.
**to my bellybug(s)-- Momma, daddy and your sisters and brother are very excited about you! I dream of you almost every night and feel your movements inside(a little bit anyways). I can't wait to see you inside my belly swimming around! Keep growing and moving.. We will see you soon!**
Had to call the babydoc today to make sure I still had an appointment next Tue because of the stupid walk-off that like 90% of the Dr.'s here are participating in. Thankfully, she is not one of those Doc's I can't believe I am almost outta "the zone".
Left my job cause they're A**holes!! But it's ok, I much rather enjoy taking care of my kids and my house anyways. DH is just about hired at two different places, and if all else fails, we can survive on my unemployment and child support. It'll be tight, but we can do it.
Two things I haven't been able to get enough of lately.. Food and Drink.. More so drink than food, but it seems like if I'm not thirsty, I'm hungry. I drink like a gallon of water, 1/2 gallon of fruit juice and a 20 oz of Dr. Pepper a day. And I'm not even going into what I eat! LOL Let's just say I may not eat alot at once, but I eat many times thru the day. I eat breakfast, snack, heavier snack, snack, dinner, snack snack. The heavier snack takes the place of my lunch cause I'm not big on lunch foods lately, so I will just have a bowl of cottage cheese with fruit coctail on top (yummy!!)
*to the BellyBug(s)-- I will hopefully hear you in one week and see you not long after that!! We all love you so much already! Just keep growing and moving!*
All day yesterday I was havin thisweird pain I've never had before. Thru the day, I tried many things to get it to stop and it didn't, so around 10:30 I called my doctor.. and let me just note-I LOVE MY NEW DOCTOR!! She explained to me that when you first get preg and when you're not that far along, teh baby doesn't take up the whole uterus, and when you start getting farther, sometimes the stretching is painful and as long as there is no bleeding, it's most likely not a m/c (which is what I was scared of). So I went to bed, and this morning I feel fine(thankfully). Well, as fine as you can feel with constant nausea anywho. :P
YAY!! It's friday! Not that that really means much of anything right now.. Every day is a day off for me :P Well, kinda! I still take care of the kids and the house, etc.
I've been feelin movement still and only 4 more days till the Dr's!! YAY! Still have all my fun nausea and heartburn and m/s. Haven't had the HB that bad till about Wed, now I get it after everything I eat. And I do mean EVERYTHING!
On a crap note, DH is acting like a complete and total A-hole today. Amber is getting out of line again (she was doing sooo wel for awhile) and in his correcting her, I felt he was a little rough with her. He asked me how I felt he dealt with her, so I told him and now he's all pissed off at e for saying that. What was I spose to do? Lie to him?"Oh yeah, honey, it's fine for you to get all up in her face and scare the living daylights out of her and push her down on the couch(she was already sitting there, but still.. there was no need for that and I told him that)" Sorry, but I'm not that kind of person. All three of my at-home kids act out once in awhile but he is roughest on Amber. He might not see it, but I do. And I don't like it. Just because she wasn't born of his seed does NOT give him the right to treat her any differently. When he accepted me, he accepted her too, she is part of the package. And for him to disrespect her and her body/personal space like that is disrespecting me too.
Blah, ok I'm done *****ing..
I am loving being pregnant, relishing every moment because I know this is my last, but pleaseeeeeeee Lord can't you make it go FASTER??
Why is it that the week of every one of my kids' birthdays is super busy? Today is my only day to myself, and I dont even have that!!LOL Gotta clean the house today cause I wont have time tomorrow. Dr's office called this morning and moved my appt for tomorrow up to 2:00 instead of 3:20. But the good thing with that is there may be a u/s involved!!Dr has the machine right in her office!!(YAY) And now I am on hold with the bakery that is making my son's b-day cake for tomorrow to see if I can pick it up sooner than noon.
Then on Wed, we have eye appts (dh, dd and I), thur EPSDT appts for Kenna and Brendan, Friday is DD's mothers day tea at her school that I am going to. Sooooo it's a busy week!
Remember a few days ago I said I felt that my lil bellybug was plural? Well my horoscope for tomorrow basically confirmed that.. To paraphrase, it said "everything you're thinking is true, is".. But we shall find out for sure tomorrow! If she isn't a they than I am WAY farther along than I thought I was, because I've seriously popped out already. I stopped being able to wear my "normal" clothes forever ago it seems (really it's been like 3 weeks), and I am feeling movement every day. Not a whole lot of it, but enough to notice, but then again, I know what I'm feeling for it's not like this is my first preg
Well, that's all for now, but I am sure I'll have alot to write about tomorrow!
