    Default Finally I begin my journal...EDD Nov.13/03 for BABY #1!

    I've been humming and hawing about a journal and just wasn't sure if I'd find it helpful or if I would be into it or not. I started one on paper, but it seems too difficult to find the time to sit down and write in it.

    So, here goes....

    I'm 28 days today!! This means I'm officially in my third trimester. Wow, how time flies! I think I'm lucky sometimes that I didn't find out until 12 weeks because that made the pregnancy go by much faster. I can't imagine this anxiousness for the entire 10 months!!!!!
    I'm feeling really good, so thankful for how lucky I've been with my health during pregnancy! Considering I didn't think I could ever get pg, I'm doing very well
    The excitement is growing and growing, but the nervousness is starting to set in too. I wasn't really nervous before, but now that reality is creeping up, I guess the nervousness felt it should too. I'm really excited to be a mom, to love, nurture and raise a lil one. But, at the same time I'm scared. I'm a strong person and I know that I can do this. But, I'm still scared. With the unknown of my dbf and my relationship, and where it's going (or not), I'm scared. Something I wished for all my life is that I would find a loving, supportive partner that would be with me throughout the remainder of my life and would be a wonderful father. Coming from a single parent family all my life, with a non-existent father, this was obviously something important. So, where does this put me today?!?!?!
    But, I've got to deal with what hits me in life. Considering I "could never wait" to have kids, then finding out I may not be able, and then that I actually was pg - it's really a blessing to my life, no matter how things turn out. I just wish I could've done this better.
    BUT - my new love will join me in just 12 weeks and I can't wait. My dbf will be a wonderful father, it just may be that we're not together.
    The emotions were fine for the first little while. Then near the middle to end of the second trimester they went a little wonky. I can cry so easily now, it's amazing. I was never an emotional person before and I'm not sure I really like this.
    Anyway, that's the beginning story for my journal. Hopefully next time it's a little more cheery....

    I haven't posted in a while...I need to put this on a daily to-do list so I don't forget. My god, I thought my memory was bad before being pg!!!!!

    I'm still feeling so great. I consider myself extremely lucky. No m/s, no really crazy emotions, no problems. So far so good.
    I'm now 30 weeks and 5 days. WOW. I have just under 10 weeks to go, and I can barely believe that. I'm at the point now that I just simply cannot wait. Feeling a little human inside of me is the most incredible experience. First, just knowing there was something growing inside of me was great; then feeling kicks was exciting; but now feeling baby's every little movement is incredible. It seems to do the most movement as I'm sitting at my desk working every day. I'm not sure if it's the time of day, the way I'm sitting, or what.
    Things with dbf and I are still going well. I don't know what's going to happen, only time will tell. I'm trying to be optimistic, but still realistic.
    I had my first baby shower this past weekend!!! It was the shower with friends. I had a lot of fun, the baby got spoiled, just as I thought would happen. It's so exciting for all of my friends too because it's the first baby of all of us...through all channels of friends. Auntie Kelly and Auntie Nikki organized it and they did a great job. Kelly did the majority of it, but it was at Nikki's house and she helped to set up etc.
    My next Dr. appt is in less than a week, and I'll post after that as an update.
    31 more working days!! :P

    Here I am, just 20 days until our lil babe is due. Today is my last day of work. Well, not officially - I'll be on vacation for the next two weeks, but this is my last day to come here!!!!! I'm so excited...just 2 hours to go.
    Baby seems to still be doing well. I really think it's a boy.
    Last Dr's appt, I was told the baby is big. Ya, no ****. She told me to do some research on c-sections because it may be the way I end up going. I doubt it, but I did do some research to check things out. Whatever is to happen, will happen.
    I've now gained a total of 38 lbs.
    I hadn't had swelling during the rest of my pregnancy, and all of a sudden the swelling seems to be coming on. It started yesterday and has continued to today. I gotta get these feet elevated I guess...
    I hope this baby comes soon...I don't even want to wait another 20 days.
