Nevin's Going To Be A Big Brother!

I can hardly believe it and thought it was never going to happen! As I sat in the bathroom this morning, waiting to find out what the result of my test would be...I had already assumed it was going to be negative... I even got a little depressed about it. To my suprise there were 2 lines! I started shaking, my heart was about beating out of my chest, my palms were sweaty and I couldn't stop crying!...I was so happy!!! I went to the computer and asked Josh on IM to take a look at my chart...like I often did. He saw the BFP + on it and thought I had made a mistake! LOL. When I told him about it he got teary eyed...this is something we have wanted for so long! I took a picture of the test and sent it to him. He came home soon after for just a few minutes. We couldn't have gotten a better Christmas present!

We had our 1st interview with the midwife! Actually there were 2 of them...they're a team! It was so awesome! The place was so comfortable and felt so homey. They were so friendly and soft spoken. We sat in rocking chairs and talked about everything. They talked with us for an hour answering all of our questions and telling us all about their background.So informative! We had already filled a form out before we got there explaining how we want things to be while having the baby etc. They were nice! They gave us a folder full of pamphlets and info and even let us borrow a book. They have a nice collection of books and told us we can borrow any at any time. Right before we left I asked to use the bathroom...as one of the midwives showed me where it was she pointed out all the teas they had, told be to help my self to them and we were welcome to hang out if we wanted. Wow...it was a great experience and I think we'll be going with them! I'm so excited!

Had some more blood work done today! My levels were 10,907 compared to last week when they were only 463! This makes me to happy and so relieved! Still trying to figure out what all of it means. From what I've read they are pretty high for how far along I am. Twins have crossed my mind...lol (they do run in my family). Which I'd be thrilled with! But I'm hoping there is only one in there ;).

Well...today is the 1st day since Christmas that I haven't puked! Yahoo I was throwing up several times a day/night...and feeling so sick. Today I still have the nausea but I didn't puke! Thought I was gonna a few times but didn't. I'm hoping this is the start of me feeling better!
It's so weird to feel so sick to your stomach and not want anything at all to eat but then needing to eat in order to feel better. I'm having a hard time finding things I can stomach...last night plain toast..even the smell of it made me sick.
Oh! I have another appointment with my midwife tomorrow! Smile

I had my appointment with the midwife today! We took Nevin with us and he got to meet them and he played with some toys...he was so well behaved the whole time. I feel so relieved now. I was so worried about taking my vitamins and making sure I eat the right things even though I couldn't keep them down. Well. she told me that the vitamins really aren't nessesary and that they are poorly absorbed. She said eating a healthy diet is fine. When I mentioned my concern over the food I eat she told me to just eat what I can...whatever sounds good to me at the time. Suprisingly she mentioned all the foods I've been eating...mashed potatoes, plain pasta, green beans. She informed me on so many things and I now feel like a weight has been lifted! Smile Which reminds me...I was weighed while I was there and I've lost 5 pounds since I became pregnant...it's not a lot but still worried me.
After the appointment we went to the Olive Garden...let me just say that it was a bad decision...lol. I was being too adventurous. Overall today has been a very good day! I love my midwives and the assistants! Thay all gave me a hug before we left and we checked out another book!
Oh, and I just want to add that right before we left the house to go to the appt Nevin looks at me and says " I've never seen a sick Mommy look so pretty!" What a sweet heart! I love my boy!

Well, today is my birthday! I'm now 28 :shock:. Sounds weird saying that...lol. We weren't able to go to the ultrasound appt today. Nevin wasn't feeling well yesterday and then in the middle of the night he had a 104 degree fever! He also had a tummy ache. I'm now having the ultrasound on friday!
I've been so sick today. Some days seem to be better than others. Man...I cannot wait to start feeling better!

I had my appt with my midwife last night and although DH managed to get us lost on the way there (we were a 1/2 hour late ) she still managed to fit us in! I asked lots of questions and forgot some of the more important ones that I had been wanting to ask. I need to start writing these things down. Well I asked about hearing the baby's heart beat....they normally use only the fetal scope but she wouldn't be able to hear anything until about 20 weeks or so. She said if I really wanted her to then she would use a doppler. So she did! Yay! It really eases my mind to hear it. The h/b was in the 150's (can't remember if it was 151 or 156) well anyway...she said it was nice and strong! The baby kept moving around while she was using the doppler...lol! So everything went great! I can't believe how much I'm already starting to show!

17 weeks ultrasound!

It's a ... BOY!!!

OMG...that orange juice worked a little too well or something because this little guy would not stop moving all over! The lady that did the u/s was so suprised at how active he was! lol. He was laying in a breech position for a while so we were only getting pics of his back... so she had me get up and walk around a bit and with his non-stop movement it didn't take long for him to get in a better position. I could tell he was a boy right away!!! Oh! And we even got to see him drinking amniotic fluid...that was so neat! His little mouth kept opening and closing :).
Nevin got such a huge kick out of the whole thing. We are sooooo happy!
He is 5.1" and 3.6 oz!!!
The lady that did my u/s was so nice and really took her time to explain everything! She even counted his little toes for me...5 on each foot! Biggrin

Okay, it's been forever since I've written anything in here! This is just an update on my appt yesterday with the midwives.

Well, everything seems to be going well! My weight is at 150lbs...so in total I've gained 20lbs! The baby's heart beat was 160 which is a bit high but seems normal for him. He's head down now and Josh got to feel his head... it was so neat! She said I was measuring perfectly. Which I was worried about since I've gotten so many comments on how big I am already. She gave me a bunch of herbs ... some so that I can make pregnancy tea and some for a bath soak that they will draw for me after the birth. I've already ordered some of the birthing supplies for our homebirth and things are starting to feel so real now! I'm so excited! All of my appts from here on out will be at home!
