Lizzy's "Ana-ba" Edd June/28/03

As I begin my pregnancy journal my 3yo ds Hunter, is screaming at my feet wanting, "More Bs." I am still nursing him and since I am pg, I guess I will be bf for another 2 years at least!

I am still in shock that I am pg again actually. Dh knew right away, he started to wave at my tummy 2 mins after we bd and said, "Hi baby, I'm your daddy." OMG-I could not believe it! He was right. I didn't test until 8 days ago as I had no symptoms and my AF is pretty erratic. Def pg!

Here I am writing my 2nd entry in my pregnancy journal. I have been feeling well, tho the one thing I have noticed the past couple of days is that I feel ill at the slightest smell of beer or cigarette smoke.

I am thrilled that I saw an article in the paper yesterday stating that Lambton-Kent midwives have hired a new cmw!!!! This is great! I may get one after all! I will take a waiting list and I am calling tomorrow.

After several lengthy discussions I have decided to forgo the cmw and homebirth that I wanted. I am kind of bummed about it but we have great health insurance so when the time comes I will be able to have a private room.

I am almost convinced I am starting to show. I am not sure if it is just my roll or an actual bulge.

I cannot believe this is only my 3rd entry in my pregnancy journal. However, I am not always on PO everyday so there is my answer.

I am probably the only June 03 mama who hasn't had her pg confirmed by a doctor! Def not pleased about that one. Monday is the day and I just hope that we do not have discuss nursing while pg. I know he will not go for that at all. I def do not want a repeat of last time.

I am feeling a little more tired than usual but I think it is because I have a crappy cold. I hope it goes away by Sunday night for Mom's Christmas concert.

I have to get rid of this crappy cold ASAP or I will never get any sleep! I only slept for approximately 2 hours last night because I kept coughing! In fact I was coughing so hard I woke up Hunter!!! I know this cold has hit me harder than normal because I am pg. Other women get m/s, something I have never had and very thankful for!!!

Dh informed me today that Jill is pg!!!! OMG-I knew they were trying but I was still shocked. I am happy for them! Mil will be thrilled for them but not as thrilled for us. Considering we are not getting married. I know she will be happy enough, just not the same. KWIM?

After not being here for 2 days due to feeling pretty ill, I am now trying very hard to play catch-up on my posts and journal entries.

I will be 10 weeks gestation on Saturday! I finally had my dr appt on Monday and Dr. B was pretty happy for me and never said one negative thing about me still bf Hunter! Phew!

I am kind of bummed that I will not have an u/s until January but then I will be 16 weeks and that is when I had my first with Hunter.

I believe my stomach cramping is my gall bladder. It was really intense last night. I was trying to be brave but I honestly hope I do not have the trouble that Kelly and Jill had when they were pg. I have felt better tonight and Mom was giving me pointers on what foods to avoid.

I received an email from bil Scott and he told me that Jill told mil she is pg. I am a little shocked she did so early but to each his own. I guess we will still wait until Christmas Day even tho my family already knows. My close friends know too and I just have 3 more friends to tell after we tell dh's family.

I am happy to report that my cramping has been non-existent for almost 48 hours! If I didn't know for sure that I was pg I actually don't feel pg at all! Is that a good thing? I am not sure but I am really showing yet, tho I do have a little paunch. I can still fit into my normal clothes. My mom bought me the coolest maternity jeans for Christmas tho! They are dark denim, boot cut and they have the adjustable tummy panel on them! Woo-hoo! Much more stylish than my old pairs.

I was talking to Jill yesterday and apparently she is feeling tired but well for the most part. Her edd is August 15th and the ironic thing is, that was my edd with Hunter! Our babies will be born at least 6 weeks apart but it is kind of cool to have someone to go thru it with.

Dh is going to purchase the pregnancy book that I so desperately want after work tomorrow! After complaining about him in my general journal I am glad I had somewhere semi-private to vent! He has no idea!

I am now 12 weeks as of yesterday. I will not know the full details until January 7th that is my next dr appt. I will hear the heart beat then.

12weeks, 2days along. I am feeling kind of blue talking about my pregnancy as Kelly's sister lost her baby on Sunday morning. She was due the same time I was and perhaps this is why it is bothering me more.

I was going to announce our new arrival to be in Christmas cards but will now wait until the New Year. I just feel waiting would be best at this point. KWIM?

On a lighter note, ds and I were talking about Mama being pg this am and he told me I was having a girl!

Much to my surprise dh informed his colleagues of my pg! I was delighted actually when he told me. I guess most of them were surprised, likely because we are not married. Oh well! The joys!

Dh bought me the pregnancy book I wanted! As a surprise he also bought a baby name book! The book I had when I was pg with Hunter was dated I guess. I am still in shock.

Okay, with the upgrade coming I will have to copy and paste all my journal entries from here to the new boards. I will do so for this journal and Hunter's but not mine. I will start new.

One week until we tell dh's parents that I am pg. Mil is going to freak especially when she realizes we are not getting married. I know I have mentioned this before but I know her so well and her facial expression will say it all.

I will have to tell Teresa myself as I don't want her to hear it from someone else. December 23rd will be 3 years that Bailey died and I won't bother her next week.

I am learning alot from my book that dh bought me! You wouldn't think I would have that much to learn or recap being I have been thru it! I was wrong! I am relieved I have a great book to refer to tho.

Today I was trying to get Hunter out of the carseat and I started to get really dizzy. I honestly thought I was going to faint. I had to lean on my Mom's arm the entire time in the grocery store. I had to get something to eat right after and then I felt better.

I am pleased that one more friend from PO is pg! Denise is due on Hunter's bday! How neato is that?

This morning I was sooooooo freaking tired, I had to sleep in. My back is killing me and I have a nasty headache again. Can you imagine what I would be like if I actually suffered from m/s????

I am the point in this pg where I want to tell everyone! However, we are not telling the mil and fil until Christmas, and I still have 3 friends to tell after that. I will post here how that goes.

Tonight after the bus ride at the church I told some people that I am pg! You know something, only about 3 people heard me and that was that. I guess I will get quite the reaction on Wednesday.

I am getting the flu I think. I am feverish now, my tummy is upset, my body is achy, and I am really, really tired. I was hoping it was m/s as I felt like this all day and I have not been around anyone who has been sick all week. I truly hope I feel better tomorrow as dada will not be home until Sunday.

I didn't receive the reaction I was hoping for when I told Bill and Debbie that I am pg. Bill shook his head and Debbie looked shocked but managed to mutter, "Congratulations." It isn't like I am single, I am with my dh, even tho he can be a major PITA! However, just because they only have an only, doesn't mean the rest of us want it that way. To be honest I felt kind of bad.

At least the m/s or whatever was troubling me on the weekend has gone away! I still am not very hungry and now the smell of coffee turns me stomach!!! This is crazy!

This pregnancy has totally affected my personality!!! I am not sure for the worst tho! Maybe it is because I quit the bad habit too.

Your dada's mommy and daddy are aware of your impending arrival and I am sad to say are not thrilled. It bothers me but I will not let them destroy my happiness. Mil really was sooooo freaking opioniated after ds was born, and hurtful to me that I will not let that happen again. Circumstances are different since we are a family unit now but this is why she doesn't know Hunter. She will never babysit this baby either. The new baby will be taken there for family get togethers but I will never, ever forget her Christmas Day 2002 reaction. Mama and Dada love you kiddo.

I only have one friend left to tell that I am pg and that is Marg. I know she will be a little upset at being the last to know but I had to wait as the mil and fil did not know until Christmas Day. I have to have some respect for them.

I told Pam on the phone and Teresa on the phone and both were happy for us but Teresa was happier! Pam said Congrats but wanted to know when we are getting married.

It has been almost a month since I wrote in this journal. I apologize and hope to make more of an effort.

I had my u/s on Monday and Rob wanted to ask the sex, I really didn't want to know as I changed my mind but I did ask for his sake. The technician tried 4 different times to see but there was a little hand hiding the goods and we will have to wait!!!! I thought it was kind of funny actually........

I am growing out of my clothes and am wearing maternity jeans. I need more though and hope that mom and I can make a trip to Thyme's Maternity Outlet!!! Woo-hoo!

I will be 18 weeks tomorrow and this pg has progressed pretty quickly.

Hi pregnancy journal! I am now 19 weeks, 2 days and I have a doctor appt tomorrow morning at 10:30. It was originally set for 2:15pm but I always have to wait for one hour and it would have been too long of an afternoon for Hunter that is why I changed it. I only hope the weather stays clear so we can go. I want to go shopping afterwards!

Bad news regarding my pg, I gained 9lbs in 4 weeks, my bp is up, and my edd is now June 21st!!! Yup, the day of Tam's wedding.

I finally told him today that I am supposed to be a moh in Hamilton on June/21 and he laughed at me. He said it would be highly doubtful that the ob would let me travel(when I thought my edd was 6/28) and even more so now. He said not to invest any time or money into it. I am so bummed and disappointed that I will miss her wedding. I don't think I could go as a guest and watch one of her friends fill in for me. I am tearing up right now just thinking about it.

I know this pg was not planned but I def do not regret it but sad I cannot be the moh as we have always planned.

I have to go back to the dr in 2 weeks to be checked again. My mom is so freaking sweet she is paying for me to join the gym so I can work out to lose weight. Just on the treadmill and stationary bike but it will def help. I cannot skip rope like I did 2 years ago when I lost weight so this type of cardio will not be hard on my bad leg.

I tried to call Tammy tonight but I had to leave a message asking her to call me back as it was important. I have no idea where they are, maybe away for a few days. I will post tomorrow and give an update.

Regarding the phone call I had with Lamb almost a week ago on Tuesday evening. It did not go well. She was upset, understandably and insisted on trying to change the wedding date. I am touched she wants to do this but at the same time I don't want her to disrupt her special day for me.

I am not sure what the results are as I have not spoken to her and I know I felt Hunter more. However, if I lie still this is when I can feel the baby more.

I am 21 weeks, 1 day and growing. My exercise bike will be here on Friday and mom and I are starting our thrice weekly walks tomorrow night. I have to remain optimistic that things will be alright.

Despite the freezing weather mom and I went for a brisk walk tonight! If the weather stays this cold I will be walking alone until it gets warmer. Mom cannot handle the cold like I can for some reason. I despise the cold but this year maybe because I am pg I handle it better.

I read on the boards earlier tonight that Brooke is pg! I am so happy for her and excited too as I know she really wanted another baby. I pray that all is well.

21 weeks, 2 days, almost 3 and almost February 11th!

I have been feeling lots of movement today!!! On Sunday I was really worried as I could hardly feel the baby all day!!! Yesterday and today have been better for that though.

I am thrilled that I will be getting the foam matress topper on Friday, it will help relieve the pressure points that I feel on my hips and lower, left spine. I soooo wish I had never been in that stupid car accident. It has left me with injuries that I don't think will ever completely disappear.

I def have to walk tomorrow night and I hope it isn't as cold as it was Monday.

I was 22 weeks officially yesterday! I am still having issues with the fetal movement. When I think about it, of course I feel nothing. Ana-ba likes to move when I am lying on my back watching t.v., I felt some gentle kicks this morning. I am wondering if I should get a fetal monitor thingie-ma-jig.

Tomorrow is my dr appt and I am really nervous. I hope I didn't gain 9lbs in 2 weeks!!!! I hope my bp is down too. Pray, pray, pray! I really don't want any problems.

I had a wonderful dr appt on Monday!!!! Woo-hoo for me!!!

I only gained 1lb in 2 weeks and my blood pressure is down! He was very proud of me. I have to go every 3 weeks instead of 4 but that is alright by me! He is going to Australia for a month so I will see his replacement next time. Rumour has it, she is incredibly nice. I hope so.

My flipping exercise bike is on back order unil February 28th!!!! Oh I was not very happy when I found out. There is a chance it could arrive on Friday but I doubt it.

22 weeks, 3 days and feeling more movement from this baby. I finally found that monitor/fetal recorder I want! Wal-Mart for $49.99! I am going to ask for a gc for my V-day gift so that will be a little bit towards it. I am pretty sure dh will go for it.

I was just sitting here when I almost doubled over in pain from period-like cramps!!! This is not good. I had them a little bit before but not this bad. I am not bleeding but I have to go and lie down for awhile.

I will post later how I am feeling.

Actually yesterday I felt like hell for most of the day. The cramps I was experiencing when I wrote that last entry finally disappeared about one hour later. I went for a nice, long, brisk walk with my mom last night but still didn't feel well.

After Hunter was in bed I had a luxurious bubble bath and the cramps went away for good. However, my back pain is sooooo much worse now! It is the same area that has been affected since my accident but I am in soooo much pain. I tried to call the dr to see what I could take but of course they were closed already. Will call tomorrow.

I was officially 23 weeks yesterday!!! This pregnancy is sure moving right along. Crazy.

I felt like complete hell yesterday I will not go into detail as I already did in my general journal.

I managed to walk 4 night straight, although 3 of the nights were long and brisk, last night was a short one to my parent's house. My exercise bike came on Friday!!! Dh put it together for me and carried to the basement which was no easy feat, it was freaking heavy! I tried to lift it and dh caught me and I caught hell.

My back is still sore but I doubt I will get into to see my dr before he goes to Australia. I will have to call instead. Oh joy.

I am now, considering it is after midnight, 23 weeks, 4 days pg!!!!

My blood pressure has been troubling as dh and I had words last night and my way of beating stress is no longer acceptable. I could hear my heart pounding in my ears all day and I would get dizzy from time to time. My ankles are pretty swollen too and I really have to be careful.

Tomorrow I better hop on my bike!!!!

I am now 24 weeks, 1 day. I am feeling anything but sunny however I try to be thankful for what I have.

The baby hasn't been very active today but if I lie down I know I will feel the little bean.

It is really snowy here today, very cold, am looking forward to summer.

25 weeks today!!!! 15 more to go! I really need this snow to melt and spring to arrive! I will feel happier then. Oh well.

I cannot believe that mil and fil are going to have 5 grandchildren before the end of summer, esp when there is only 2 now!!! I bet it was the shock of their lives to discover that Jill is having twins!!! Cool though!

I have this frigging cold that just won't leave me alone! I have been taking Delysm with my dr's okay but it only works in short doses. I hope I feel better in a few days. I am not sleeping that good.

I had my dr appt yesterday with the dr who is filling in for Dr. B while he is in Australia. She was nice and let me hear the heartbeat!!! Dr. B never offers to let me! I only gained 2lbs, no protein in my urine, but my blood pressure was up. Not surprising after my nasty weekend. I am supposed to stay as stress-free as I can. Whatever.

Another great thing that happened at the Dr was that the nurse got me in for the last available June slot with Dr. R!!!! Who knew? I am so happy about that!!!!!

I am officially 26 weeks pg today!!!! I feel pretty good today although I still have a nasty cough by times.

Today is very mild, sunny, and the crappy snow is melting! It even smells like spring! This kind of weather makes me feel optimistic.

I really like my prenatal monitor, I can hear the baby kick, and other placental sounds, it is really cool actually and worth the money.

No swelling today, no headaches, I am a klutz though, I have dropped alot of things!

I am now 26weeks+3days. I woke up in the night with cramps that scared the hades out of me. I had to take a Motrin and get the heating pad. About 3 hours later I felt better although I had to sleep in today to make up for the lack of sleep.

I felt pretty good today but bloated after dinner. I had a nap with dh on the futon while ds slept. I then went for a walk to get the garbage tags. On the way home I started to cramp again. I think I will have a bubble bath after I put Hunter to bed.

This pregnancy is progressing so quickly, I can now type that I am officially *27 weeks* today! Isn't that unbelievable? I am still down but I want to keep my tone light for this journal.

Pregnancy wise I am feeling okay today, lots of movement and if dh had been awake, he would have felt the baby kick. Dadas.

I have to remember that I have to cancel my next appt for the 31st and make it for later in the week. My appt is for 1:30pm and that is too late esp with traveling to the city and it wreaks havoc with Hunter's nap. I will have to do that on Monday.

Today is Wednesday, March 26th and I am now 27 weeks + 4 days! Woo-hoo!

Today I have been feeling alright, although I just can't shake the overwhelming tired feeling I have every, single morning. It is awful. I am not sick just lethargic and I don't start to feel better until after lunch.

I will have to mention it to the dr but of course I forgot to change the appt again, so I def need to do that tomorrow.

Lots of movement, peeing alot, like every half hour.

I turned 28 weeks yesterday!!!! Woo-hoo!!!! Tomorrow I have a dr appt and I have a feeling I gained some poundage. I don't think the dr will be too thrilled with that. Hopefully my blood pressure is down and no meds for me..........

I am showing alot more and major movement yesterday!!! Not as much today but I know as soon as I lay down to sleep, the little bean will start rocking!!!!!

Today is my second u/s as my dr is concerned that I am, "small for dates." I was this way with Hunter but my mind is working overtime and I am imagining all sorts of horrible things. I really am praying things are alright. The baby is also lying transverse so that was another reason the doc thought I was smaller than normal. I have been gaining weight though, there is no question about that!!!!

Baby is fine!!! The tech was great and cheated to tell me the measurements. I was really pleased about that as I did not want to wait 48 hours to hear it from my doc. The lil' bean weighs 2lbs, 10ozs, lying transverse, heartbeat was 160!!!! Lots of movement but lots of uncomfortable stretching cramps this morning. OUCH!!!!!

My first journal entry in my pregnancy journal on the upgraded boards!!!! Woo-hoo! I need to grab a life somewhere. Lol

I am officially 30 weeks today, well yesterday now but what the hey! I am relieved that I stopped spotting on Monday. It wasn't alot but it was frightening. It was all due to stress and my blood pressure was pretty high too. I am much better now and for that I am thankful.

I am looking more pg all the time! Even my mom says that my belly is getting bigger. Lil' bean is still lying transverse though and I better start practicing my crawl! Blum 3

I am so relieved that I have a nice, cool outfit to wear to the bridal shower in Hamilton next weekend! I hope to look pretty good considering I will be exactly 7 mos pg.

Today, Saturday makes me, 30 weeks, 3 days! Woo-hoo! I am frightened as we have so much to do! Finish the basement, the nursery, and buy a coming home outfit! Eeek! I really hope we can accomplish everything on time.

I have been feeling alright the past few days. I have a doc appt on Tuesday, the last I see my family doc and then 1 week later I see my ob who actually delivered Hunter! I really like Dr. Rutledge and was very pleased to get that appt.

My tummy is getting bigger and I should have Kelly take a picture on Monday as I don't want to bother George, he has alot on his plate with Mama Margie being in the hospital. I am sure she will have her digi with her, I will call her and ask.

It is officially the 21st of April now so that means I am 30 weeks + 5 days now!!! Also it is my 31st birthday, scary.

We had dinner at mil and fil's for Easter tonight and I am so much smaller than Jill!!! Of course, she is having twins and 6 weeks behind my edd. She looks really good though. I also saw Stephanie Ryan at Timmy's and she is 3 mos pg!!! That is great news too.

I am feeling much better than yesterday and I looked good in my cool Easter outfit my mom bought me.

I had a really great appt today. I am officially 31 weeks today!!!! I still cannot believe how quicly the time is flying.

Dr Bartlett was pleased with my blood pressure being so normal! Lol I have gained about 25lbs but he knows I can take that off after baby is born. I do not look 7 mos pg, more like 6 but oh well.

He was so affectionate, he gave me a hug and wished me well. I will have to go to him about my back for pain meds I imagine. Time will tell. My ob/gyn appt is May/2nd at 1:15pm.

31 weeks + 5 days....

I managed to make it through the hectic weekend. My ankles are quite swollen though and this is a major concern for me right now. I really hope after I put them up or after my bath that it goes away.

I could not sleep last night as my hips are so tender from that super, soft bed, I was hot(even though the heat isn't on), dh was snoring,(I kicked him out to the sofa), and I had heartburn. :shock: I never had heartburn when I was pg with Hunter.

Mrs. Lamb saw me yesterday and she said I was having a girl!!! She says it is by how "low" I am. Tammy agreed. We shall see.

Today is Wednesday, April 30th, 2003. This marks my 32nd week!!! Wow!!! I am not ready for this baby to be born yet though, way too much to do and I have a feeling this lil' one is alot smaller than Hunter.........

I have had alot of back pain today and it is different than I usually have. :?: I really hope it goes away.

I have my first ob appt with Dr. Rutledge on Friday! I can't believe I actually got her! I am pretty happy about that.

So relieved that Sarah-Jean's lil' one is okay....pray for them please. Smile

Still Wednesday, 32 weeks..... I am getting a little nervous about my ob/gyn appt on Friday. I believe it is because it is the same building and office as the bitchy doc I had when I was pg with Hunter. Thank goodness I have Dr. Rutledge!! She really does rock.

I have had odd cramps tonight.... back and lower tummy, I think it is because I am trying to do too much but I do not get any help. I am still taking out the garbage at 32 weeks. Men, are def not my favourite right now. I guess I should stop this entry before I get too mean.

I am nervous about tomorrow, why? I don't know......I just hope all is okay.

I had nothing to be nervous about!!! I had an excellent appt with Dr. Rutledge today! I forgot just how nice> she is! My tests were great, blood pressure normal, weight gain, well, 3lbs but she wasn't too concerned about that..... 32 weeks + 2 days. Heartbeat was 152 bpm and sounded great! She is convinced that the lil' bean is no longer transvese!!! Woo-hoo! Just had to share. Biggrin
