    Default Done Brewin'! Aidan Arrived on 7/6/07!!!

    Thanks to my boyfriend for the name of my journal. Hahaha!

    Introduction:

    Hello everyone. My name is Diana and I am going to be a first time mom. I very excited but very scared at the same time. My boyfriend, Jesse, and I were not TTC at the time, but things happen and I'm glad they did. At the moment I am 9 weeks and one day and my EDD is July 13, 2007. Luckly my morning sickness has come and gone already, not like it really matters cause it really wasn't that bad, just some nausea (I know, I'm one of the lucky ones!) Right now all I want to do is eat everything in sight and I'm doing a pretty good job of accomplishing that! I swear I will be the size of a house by 40 weeks.

    My first appointment with my OB was on November 13th. Just your basic Q and A appointment with some blood taking (ahh!) I got a lot of free stuff which was cool. Other then that, very uneventful except when I slammed my elbow on the counter and almost passed out...fun, I know.

    At first my OB had concerns about my blood pressure being so high (150/90) and I explained that I get nervous around doctors. She told me to come in and get a retake the next week. So I went in the following tuesday and it was at 140/80....still too high. I had a different doctor this time, for mine was not in that day. She waited about 10 minutes and took it again. 128/79. She was please with this but still told me to come back the next week for a follow up. I decided I would go after I had my ultrasound on the following Tuesday.

    Here's my first picture of you baby at 7w4d:



    I was so happy! I heard the heart beat and everything! The Heart rate was 137 and I was just in awe when I saw my little one on the screen! After that I knew everything would be alright. I left and went across the street to my OB's office and had my blood pressure taken again. 118/70. The doctor was pleased. My next appointment is on December 13th. I'll be 9w5d. Hopefully they'll set up an appointment for another ultrasound

    Well I guess that's it for now. Until next time

    Well see....

    Madame Zaritska's reading


    Madame Zaritska, our resident clairvoyant, wants to help you prepare for the arrival of your child. Here she does her best to predict certain aspects of your labor and birth experience.

    What she senses for you
    The day you deliver, outside will be foggy. Your baby will arrive in wee hours of the morning .

    After a labor lasting approximately 15 hours, your child, a boy, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 6 pounds, 8 ounces, and will be 19 inches long. This child will have light blue eyes and be completely bald.

    But there is more. I sense that you are feeling some stress. This is very normal. However, I would like to suggest that you try some of these methods to pamper yourself a bit.

    9w5d

    Today I went for my second OB appointment. Nothing big. The doctor went over my blood work and pap results. I had a normal pap! First time in almost two years (I have HPV.) That means I probably won't have to have a c-section! I've been fearing that since I found out I was preggo.

    Anyways, the doctor said it was still to early to hear the HB so she scheduled me to come back in three weeks for that. That's about it. Until next time.

    So today I finally found the pregnancy journal I had been looking for! Only took a trip to that god awful place called the mall, but it was well worth it. That and I discovered just how good the Mango Tango fruit smoothie is from Fruit Sensations. It has mango, pineapple, kiwi and papaya in it. I never really liked any of thouse before but today I just had to have one; it just sounded too good! I also bought the book "Belly Laughs" today along with some last minute Christmas gifts. It was all in all a good day

    So I had my appointment today. I heard the heartbeat!!!! It was so cool. My little one kept swimming around and the doc tried to follow for about 5 minutes then we just gave up. Already taking after his/hers father! Anyways, I've gained...17 lbs. so far. Honestly, though, I think most of it was in my shoes and my boobs. I've probably only really "gained" about 10. I can make myself feel better by saying that right? Anyways, 17 lbs or not, I don't look like I'm 150. And I've been there before so I know what it looks like. I guess that's about it. I got for my next appointment on the 1st of February. Until then.

    So I felt the popcorn effect last night! I was laying down and there it was! it felt like pop corn popping in my tummy...and no it wasn't gas! This is getting me all kinds of excited. I can't wait til my next U/S. I might not be finding out what I'm having, but just to see my little one is going to be awesome!!!

    So we've finally come to some kind of agreement on names last night. Nothings offical, but it's better then having nothing! Here they are:

    Boy- Jacob Michael
    Girl- Kylie Cadence

    Nothing is set in stone, but it's nice to have something! My goal is to have the names before the ultrasound because I am finding out what the gender is. My DBF doesn't want to know still. So you can see why there is an urgency and no matter how well I cover it up, he'll still think I'm leaning more towards one then the other and then he'll freak out and say I gave it away. Blah. Well that's all for now. Time for some hot cocoa

    So I went to the doctor's today in fear that I might have a UTI. Nope. Instead I have a bacterial infection and a yeast infection. I figured I had a BI because my DBF's "fluids" don't exactly like me, so my doctor said last time I had one. I'm not really worried. I have my meds and all is good. I got to hear the heart beat again today. As soon as my doc put the doppler on my I could hear it. It's so cool! I go back next Thursday for my actual appointment. Hopefully I get to set my U/S date!!! i can't wait!
