Hi,my name is Peggy and my husband is Will.We are first time parents and my husband is in the air force.I dont remember the exact day i found out i was pregnant...i just remember driving to the store on base feeling all sick and getting 2 pregnancy tests.I got home and i took one and it was positive...wow what a shocker!I mean i had just gone off birth control a month ago..and here i was thinking oh its going to take us awhile...um no it didnt .So once i see the positive pregnancy test..i jsut start walking around the living room like a nut going oh my god oh my god.Meanwhile my husband is working mid shift(11pm-7a shift) so he is sleeping...i wander into the room and poke him..he doesnt wake...so i slap him..and say two lines...two line...he is like what?(still have asleep)so im like i took a test and im pregnant and then he jsut sat up..now that i look back at it it is funny .Before i got pregnant i was dealing with anxiety and panic disorder...i never went on medicine for the simple fact that if i got pregnant i would have to go off it..but the anxiety isnt that bad anymore...its jsut if there is something to worry about i worry about it.
Im 9 weeks and 3 days now...Everything is going great...i have mild nausea for a few weeks and only 2 days of throwing up!woo hoo!Ive already bought stuff for the baby.I went to the doctors Aug 2 i was 8 weeks 3 days and had an u/s and saw my little baby and the heartbeat wow what an experience..i love my baby more than i could have ever imagined.I really want a baby girl but whatever i have i will love...i have my next appointment Aug 30th at 12weeks 3 days to hear the heartbeat!im so excited!OH yeah..lol my hormones have been raging..my poor husband cant win for trying...im sad one minute mad the next.Today is a great day no bad hormone outbursts!
This morning has been pretty good..a little bit of nausea but no throwing up..i think its nerves or something.My husband made Staff Sgt. i am so proud of him!This means higher rank and more pay.Im going out in an attempt to find some athletic pants because my jeans are uncomfortable..and im too tiny for maternity clothes yet. Ok well my mom just showed up so i will write more later.Gosh i hope i dont get sick while im out!!!
I got up feeling great and am still feeling great .I've been looking at baby swings today and finally found one i like..its called flutterbye..or something like that.This whole not knowing the sex of the baby is killing me!I want to go buy clothes for the baby and set up the nursery...grr...we have a girl names picked out..Chloe Madison..but the boy is iffy...I like Christian,Marcus and Micheal...but my husband is a 3rd and possibly wants to carry on his name..which would be no problem if i liked his name(yes go ahead think im terrible)..his name is Wilmer Clinton..i love my husband more than anything but i jsut dont think i can name my baby that if its a boy.His father goes on and on about pride etc.I keep telling Will that its our decision not his and his fathers...it jsut ticks me off and makes me feel like im carrying this child but if its a boy i dont have a say in the name..ya know?Im hoping we can reach a compromise of having part of his name either the wilmer or clinton as a middle name...im fine with that as long as its not the first name.Grr i shouldnt stress about the name of the baby yet but i am.
On to other things...im a big reader and have read all my books grr so i have nothing to read.I found some baby books on ebay im probrably going to bid on..woo hooo.
I went to the bx today(shopping mall on base)and looked at baby stuff but they are so expensive its cheaper to go to target for stuff.My husband told me he might be going to a poker game at a friends house...which happens to be the friends bachelor party...now i asked him if there were any strippers...and Will cant lie to me..although he tried to today..and so i found out there will be strippers there..which got me soooo mad...i mean im already a hormone queen.Then he is trying to quit smoking..the only thing i have really been trying to get him to do...and he cant even try to stop.So today my husband and i are rather mad at each other i think.
Other then the problems with my hubby im doing good today.i need to clean the house but i just cant get the energy to do it.
Today I am exactly 10 WEEKS!!!!WOO HOOOOOOOOOOO
Today is a better day...so far my hormones are ok..not going crazy like they did yesterday.My husband surprised me and put together the changing table,crib,and bouncer...i know its early but it was a nice surprise.I cant wait to find out the sex of the baby so i can finally put together the whole nursery!I might be going to lunch with my mom ..its her 40th birthday..but im not sure if i will be able to...shes going to red lobster and i dont know how my stomach will handle the smell of seafood.We might go and get the mattress today.Only 17 more days until my doctors appointment!
Today is sunday..a lazy day.I did house work today.oh boy!Im drinking like a horse though...im on my 3rd 20 oz gatorade..i just cant seem to drink enough..i shouldnt be dehydrated or anything.I had a craving for taco bell and my great husband took me to get some.I really want to paint the babys room..if only we didnt live on base...Other that doin housework its been pretty boring around here..only 16 more days until i hear my munchkins heartbeat
Had a rough morning..my husband had weekend duty he had to get up at like 430am..wowsa thats so early.I love my little pooch!I finally got a pair of old navy maternity jeans...i love em.Today has been pretty boring...havent really done anything...i could really go for a starbucks coffee right now..decaf of course.only 10 more days until my appt
I have decided not to get the AFp tests done..simply becuase there are too many false positives.
Ive been watching all about this hurrican katrina..im in panama city,fl so we will be getting the winds and rain from it and i have went through Opal which was a cat 4 hurricane.In other things...Im so excited im at 12 weeks..my baby tummy seems to be getting a little bit bigger...just baby..its great .I have been perfect..im getting energy back and i have a doctors appt in 2 days.I had to go to the doctors earlier this week cuase i thought i had a bladder infection..but i didnt..but they gave me medicine to take just in case for 3 days.We are going to try and find a house to buy its hard though since real estate has skyrocketed here.On base they have sold the houses to contractors so we will have to start paying rent,water,electricity.I wouldnt have a problem with this if i could pick out the house..but we get stuck with a lousey house built in the 50s.Im still buying stuff for the baby..I keep joking that this baby is so spoiled and its not even out of the womb yet :-p
I went in for my appointment today...i always get nervous before going so i cant really eat anything so that makes ya not feel really good.Anyways,I got in got my blood pressure taken and it was high...prolly from being nervous..but i had a rather mean nurse who automatically said wow you bp is high..right before i was going in to hear the baby's heartbeat.Now i am a small person who has never had any blood pressure issues....so here i am trying to figure out why my blood pressure is so high she gets out the doppler and puts it on my stomach..i think i hear it and she said it was in the 160's..just when i was getting to really hear the babies heartbeat..i think a whole minute had passed since she found the heartbeat she took it off.I was mad becuase i had brought my husband along to hear it and he couldnt really hear it..and the nurse wasnt really talking to us.Finally the doctor came in and he wasnt worried about my blood pressure and i have to see in sept 20 and then at 20 weeks i get the BIG u/s where we find out the sex of the baby!
Im happy i got to hear the hearttbeat i just wish i had a different nurse.
I had a good day went to the bookstore got a book and went home read and did housework...nothing too exciting.
