Journey of Pregnancy #2
Pregnant again, with ease! We were going to start trying in July - it happened before that, we got a BFP on June 17th.
Because my cycles are so wacky, I'd been taking a pg test before going out if I thought I'd be drinking. So even though we knew it was a possibility, it was still a surprise. I think it took me about 10 minutes to catch my breath.
"Dean, do you know how to read a pg test?"
Holding up the pg test "Well, look...this means positive".
I didn't get much reaction out of him right away, but I think it was shock. After he had a much needed nap, he told me I caught him by surprise but he was so excited. We went out for dinner with friends who were 5 months pg, and it's all we could all talk about!
So my Dr says I can finish off my ball seasons. I was so excited to hear that. But, lately I've been going to games not too excited to play. I think I'm just nervous now.
Fatigue has set in...I really had to talk myself into getting off the couch to do laundry this weekend...ya, really hard stuff. But looks like I'm lucky again - not much nauseousness. I did feel sick in the morning for a couple days - then I started taking my vitamin at night and I've been fine.
Only gained .5 lbs so far too!!! 8 weeks so far.....
I've been feeling really 'blah' lately, the past few days.
When I wake in the morning I feel alright, my tummy's a little off, but I think it's cuz I'm hungry. As soon as I eat I'm fine.
Once the afternoon comes I feel off. My tummy's just not too right, I'm tired, and I feel done for the day.
But as soon as I hit my relaxation time in the evening I'm fine. Maybe my body's just telling me it needs an exhaustion break!
I've been so short fused with Mikayla lately, it's making me feel so bad. I don't have the patience I normally do, and her persistence drives me up the wall. I yelled at her this morning on the way to school. It heightened the situation, and I sat back and gave myself crap in my head while she sat in her carseat and cried. What a nice Mommy. She's going through a phase right now and my pg hormones aren't a good mix with this phase!
I really hope my Mom's thoughts of twins are wrong. I mean, it would be cool - but I hadn't planned on having 3 kids. It just adds to the finances. I'm already telling Dean we should've bought a 4 bedroom instead of a 3 bedroom and we haven't even moved in yet!!!
I took my first belly pic last night! 8 weeks 3 days
I also called this morning and made an appt for an u/s on July 31. I have a Dr's appt that morning, and I'm going to tell her I'd like an u/s - get my referral and be on my way! I'm already nervous, but excited to find out what's really inside me!
My level of patience with Mikayla seems to have improved in the last couple days...and has of course directly affected a change (for the better) in her behavior.
I weighed myself this morning and I lost a pound!?! :shock: I found that strange..I haven't been sick, why am I losing weight?
I'm just plain ol *****y. Irritable, moody, *****y, whatever you want to call it. I'm not pleasant to be around though, I know that. These crazy hormones are going a little overboard right now I think.
I'm tired all the time and have NO energy at all. Although, I also have a cold that's having a hard time going away. My energy level's picked up a little in the last couple days and I think I might even attempt playing ball tonight. It's a 9pm game...we'll see how that goes.
Dean and I are arguing so much these days...I don't think he can handle my constant *****iness. Last night he went to the pub after ball and got home at 1:30am - I woke up of course. Then I woke at 2:30 to him snoring like there was no tomorrow and I tossed and turned and got more and more frustrated ... finally I moved to the couch. Then Mikayla woke at 5:15am!!!! No wonder this poor pg woman is *****y!
I'm just getting bigger and bigger, it's crazy. I think maybe I'll take another belly pic this weekend for comparison. I haven't gained any weight still though!
I'm feeling pretty good these days. It's so weird how one day I feel awesome, and the next .. not so much.
I got sick again the other morning, on the side of the road. Mikayla was saying "Mommy, why you getting out? Why you stopping?" It happened a block from our house, just after we left. Then I was fine. Nuts.
My energy level has picked up, I think it was the cold that was affecting me so much.
I think my terrible *****y stage has also passed. Thank goodness!!!!!!! That was terrible..even for me! :roll:
I took another belly pic the other night. Here's a comparison of the two.
8 weeks 3 days.............................................. ...10 weeks 1 day
It's just crazy how fast I'm growing. I originally thought I wouldn't show for a while because I started out with a pooch this time. Then when I started showing early, I thought I'd very slowly grow. NOPE! My u/s is on Monday, and I can't wait!!!!! Just imagine if there's more than one...
Mikayla was miserable this morning. That's the times I seem to root out my lack of patience. I think she's having a hard time adjusting to the difference in nap times between daycares. They only have an hour nap at big girl school, and about 2 hours at our other daycare. I can't wait until she's in big girl school FT.
I'm feeling pretty good, other than a little tired. But life's so busy right now. Mom's in the hospital after a hysterectomy and I've been trying to get there to visit her as much as I can. We're trying to finalize paperwork wtih the lawyer - and get them the final cheque. I was supposed to take it last night, but I just wanted to get to my Mom...so I skipped it. It HAS to be there tonight..sigh..so I have to get there tonight, and possibly may be picking up my Mom this afternoon too. Then I'll be staying at her place overnight and will have to take tomorrow off as vacation to stay with her. Not sure how that's going to work though - Mikayla needs to get to school still anyway. Too much going on in life right now with being pg on top of it all...the time when you really need to sit back and relax. No time for that.
I'm *positive* I felt the baby move. I thought I did the other night while visiting Mom, then off an on yesterday, all day.
Maybe I'm farther along than I thought. I don't understand how that could be possible, but maybe..?? I guess we'll find out Monday!
I had a Dr's appt yesterday and my uterus was measuring 14 weeks. I carried on to the u/s and just one baby in there! Heartbeat was 167 and I'm measuring on track. What a relieft...although a surprise!
Wow, it's been a while! I'm almost 17 weeks already and I seriously just can't believe that. This pregnancy is FLYING by!
We've moved into our first home, all renovations are done (which was one chaotic week), and we've settled in.
I'm still growing, surprisingly enough - it can happen! :D lol
Our camera was stolen from the car (after I left the windows open, and someone helped themselves), so we've ordered another one - it's the waiting game. As soon as I get it, the first thing I'm gonna do is take a belly pic!!!
Still feel nauseous once in a while, and my skin is still broken out - although not quite so badly. It's gotta be a boy.
Yesterday I had my 17 week Dr's appt. I heard the baby's heartbeat on the doppler...loved it. My Dr. said it sounds great and healthy, although she didn't tell me what it was.
I'm measuring 18 weeks, so not so far ahead anymore, which is good. I gained 4 lbs - that's the first weight I've gained so far. I really want to be careful with that.
Then we talked about the u/s I had at 11 weeks. This was the first appt I've had since the u/s cuz my Dr was on holidays.
The u/s tech said I may have an anterior wall abominal hernia, but they'd like to check again at my regularly scheduled u/s. My Dr said it isn't cause for concern, it's common. Do you think I'm not concerned though?!?! Ugh. I can't find much info on the net, but anything I do find seems to say that it requires surgery.
They'll be checking again at my regularly scheduled u/s which I'll be booking for 19 weeks. Just a couple weeks wait.
