Well it is Monday morning...and I think I have finally gotten over the shock of the BFP we got on Friday. Travis and I were suspicous of me being pregnant when I got to the bed last week and accused him of eating banana peppers before coming to bed! How crazy is that? We were not trying to concieve, but we always take any pregnancy as a wonderful blesssing.
Just some history to get started here...I have 2 children from a previous marriage-Kaori 14 and Kamalu 13. Then I have my babies from Travis, Kaizen 4 and Kimie 9 months. I also should include my little angel in Heaven (also from my previous marriage) his name was Kapono and he was born on Oct 17, 1999 with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. He passed away 11 days later on Oct 28, 1999. So October is a very very emotional month for me. You'd think it gets easier as the years go by, but it does not. It is amazing how the feelings get stirred up all over again, the crying the sadness the guilt the why me questions...But I thank god for my husband Travis who has been such a pilar for me when I needed it in my life...
OK-so, according to all the baby charts it looks like this new little bean was conceived on September 12, 2006. That would give me an EDD of June 6, 2007. We live in South Carolina, but I am hoping that we can transfer back to Hawaii before the baby is due. It would be so much easier to give birth back home where family and friends can tend to the babies for me...Here in South Carolina I have noone, that is the frustrations of being a military family...Kimie was born here in South Carolina-and I did not have a very pleasant experience!
I am just tired...I usually try to nap with Kimie during her afternoon nap, which gets interupted at 1:50 pm because I have to pick Kaizen up from Pre-K. I am drinking lots of water, and cutting back on junkfood as much as I can.
I am waiting a bit before I call to make an appointment. I usually find that going to the doctor this early just causes me to worry more. They give you an ultrasound and at this stage-you can't see anything...and they tell you to come back and yadda yadda yadda-I just figured I would call next month sometime...I have not told family yet either! I am waiting on the 12 week mark. This is just something we have done as long as I remember. I have told my preg.org family in the January 06 board, just to have someone to talk about it all too. I have also started posting on the June 07 board.
So far, symptoms I have been experiencing would be the constant peeing and tenderness in the boobies...plus the tiredness. I don't usually get morning sickness. I am crossing my fingers and praying that I don't get sick with this pregnancy.
Travis is on cloud 9-He is so thrilled that I am "hapai" (pregnant in Hawaiian) He wants to tell the whole world! ha ha-ofcourse I said he could not! But I am glad he is happy. He had been asking me for another baby for a few months and I told him no. I told him he should atleast make 1st class in the Navy first. Oh' well-he did test for the E6 exam in Sept and I pray he has made it! I am so lucky to have such a great husband. I know somedays I will be here and I will not have anything nice to say about him...but It will probably be the hormones out of wack talking! He really is an awesome man that I am lucky to have!
