Journey Through My Pregnancy
This might be a long entry. I am five months pregnant and just came across this board.

My fiance and I spent a week apart in Jan while he went to Georgia to welcome his brother home from Iraq. I missed him so much, and when he came back we had a very romantic evening. I heard some women can tell when they are impregnanted, but I couldn't. We went about a few weeks, and I noticed that I did not get my period. To be certain that I was not going to start late, I waited two more weeks. My period still didn't come, and my fiance suggested a home pregnancy test. I took two tests. One on Febuary 14 and another one 2 days later. They both came out positive.
I went to the doctor and found out that I am pregnant. My EDD was October 9. Throughtout the months, we heard the heartbeat, had ups and downs in our relationship, and got over morning sickness.
I am now 20 weeks into my pregnancy. All my tests (blood and pap) came out clean. I have been taking my prenatals every day, with a small snack cause they still make me sick. My morning sickness has just about disappeared. Throughout the entire pregancy so far, I gained 6 pounds. I am up to 144 now. I started to feel the baby move last week. At first, I was alittle unsure because it felt like gas bubbles. But its not anymore.
The UltraSound monday was easier then my first one. She let me pee half way through because she had to take measurements of all the bones. It was hard to find out the sex, because my baby kept his/her legs tucked up tightly around themselves. She/he weighs 13 ounces. The ultrasound administrator kept trying to make them open their legs so we can tell. Well, after gently proding, we found it. We are having a girl. We decided to name our baby girl Marilyn Rose, after our mothers.
