Our miracle, all in God's time- due November 2007

I thought I would start keeping track of things. I have told family and friends about coming to this website to see the pics of my tests and my belly pics so I thought I would give them something else to read about!

Well, we have officially known for 3 days now. I had suspicions before that though... It really is a miracle! Some may not know our TTC history so let me give a not-so-quick rundown.

David and I married in April of 2006 and started TTC right away. Well, the first test I took, in April of 2006 was a digital (everyone knows that these are the be all end all of pregnancy tests!) and I got a false positive! WHAT? That was nuts. So, then I started to see doctors about my fertility issues. I have PCOS and knew that conceiving wouldn't be the easiest thing for me. So, we kept trying while the doctor's took blood sample after blood sample and finally got all of my hormones and thyroid issues straightened out. I was put on metformin 1500mg or whatever, to help with insulin resistance that is usually related to PCO.

And, we kept trying (see a pattern here! Smile ) to no avail. I started to use ovulation predictor kits which were not working for me. I learned later that the cysts on my ovaries can produce false positives on those tests!
Then I did one of the smartest things I have done in regard to TTC. I joined the TTC board 0-12 months in July of 2006. I learned SO much from the ladies there and started to take my BBT (Basal Body Temperature) every morning to help pinpoint if I was ovulating and so forth. Well, we kept trying, but I was not ovulating.

My Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE) decided that David needed to get a Semen Analysis to make sure there were no problems in that arena. That was not the easiest for David to do and that in itself is a whole ordeal. Well, the results came back that most categories were normal except for the morphology. The first test showed 9% and the second showed 8%. Normal range is about 15%. So, not only did we have to deal with PCOS but now Male Infertility as well! We were frustrated, angry and felt that things were so unfair. David has wanted to have children for years and OF COURSE, so did I!

So after all this trying with no results, the temping indicated that there was no ovulation occuring. All of the "just relax and it will happens" in the world weren't going to cure either of our disorders... The doctor wanted me to begin a round of clomid in late summer. It was suppose to make me ovulate! The lowest dosage gave me a slightly higher chance of actually conceiving and possibly multiples and we were so excited! Well, I didn't conceive a baby just a gigantic cyst on my left ovary. it was 5cm!
Needless to say, the clomid didn't work for me and now I had a huge cyst to deal with. They told me to go home, wait, and then come back in a month and it will *probably* be gone. YEAH RIGHT! So, I kept up this routine for months until the end of January when the stupid cyst was to the point of being small enough that they would let me continue with the next fertility treatment - I began 2000mg of metformin and was to start Injectibles and Ovidrel to release eggs with constant ultrasound monitoring every few days. We were also going to have to pay around $1,000 to do an Intra Uterine Insemination to resolve that morphology issue. I was ready to move forward! But, I had to wait until AF visited again! URGH!

During the whole waiting on the cyst stuff, we made an appt. with an adoption agency and were briefed about the process and given an application. We were interested in this but were amazed by how expensive the whole thing is! We decided we would wait to apply until we had made one good shot at a cycle...

I started yet another round of medicine to bring on a period and this time it didn't work like it usually did. Without going into too much detail, it wasn't suppose to be classified as a real AF and low and behold they said 'yes it was' and so, I missed yet ANOTHER opportunity to get on down the road. Wink I was all set to lie to them to tell them I had started another period so that I could begin the drugs... and then I noticed weird things happening. I was really hot and had mild naseau (had stopped temping for 8 days out of anger, frustration) starting temping again and noticed my temps were so high, higher than I have seen them in all the time I had temped! I KNEW I HAD OVULATED AND KNEW THAT WE HAD BD'ed TWO TIMES AT ABOUT THE RIGHT POINT! Holy smokes, I was excited. You can bet I didn't miss a temp after that!

Thank goodness for my bright idea of increasing the metformin!

After almost a full year of ups and downs, friends' and families' babies, high hopes and smashed dreams, we have arrived at the place we wanted to be all along. I have had a blinkie on my signature for months that says "In God's time". Well, looks like he had it planned out. We just needed to be at a certain place I guess.

I have been told that for each cycle that you ovulate, there is only a 20% chance of a pregnancy occuring. Well, given all of our issues, it is absolutely amazing that it happened with no fertility drugs or inseminations! So, next to my "In God's Time" blinkie is now one that says "I Believe in Miracles".

Okay, so I knew there were going to be so called 'round ligament' pains. My RE told me to expect AF like cramping... Holy cow. Never knew that this early in the game there would be so much crampiness! I feel like that is something I will want to warn others of! It seems to have subsided today, thank goodness. I can take the pain but it makes me worry all the same! Smile

My mom is searching for baby stuff online today. That cracks me up. We have 249 days to go but that won't stop her! LOL!

I am gonna run. She is binging me with ideas!

So today is Friday. The day I regularly scrub my toilets, clean my house, visit/shop with my mom and eat at Cracker Barrel with mom and DH.

I wonder what kind of shopping we will do today? Wink

I am feeling pretty good so far today. I took my temp. an hour early today and it is still high so that is good. My mom, who is a nurse, says she will run my blood work tmw. to look at the beta numbers. I have a real appt. for a lab draw on Monday but I am quite antsy about the waiting!

I took an hpt mid day yesterday and got a positive! I know this shouldn't be a big surprise but it is a good sign that the line shows up even without FMU now. Smile

Not much else is new at this point. Just wanted to check in!

I am tired. Isn't that awesome?

I go to bed early and then can't sleep. I go through waves of being hot, then freezing. When I finally get up, it is usually still dark out. I don't know what is going on!

My mom checked my HCG levels today. It was 136-up from 15, 5 days ago. I was quite pleased. A nervous wreck for hours while I was waiting, but so happy afterward.

We had our girls' day today. I was able to point out some things at Target that we had either purchased or were thinking of registering for eventually. That is always a good time. Sometimes I feel a bit overzealous but like my friend said, just enjoy it! I will try! Smile

That's all for now. I am having my throat feeling which usually precedes feeling a bit naseauous. Smile All good things!

Thanks for checking in.

Me again.

I meant to talk about this in my first entry but then figured it was long enough to begin with Wink

On our wedding day, I gave this choo choo train picture frame (plays I've been working on the railroad) to David. He loves trains and has worked for several train companies. Anyhoot, the thing sat in the closet in our designated nursery since last April. Well, after a weekend away from home, I was unpacking and the house seemed so still. All of the sudden the thing plays a note. I got kind of freaked out. The nursery closet wall shares a wall with our bedroom so I easily heard it. Well, I shut a drawer and it played a few more times. I went downstairs and told David what had happened and he agreed that having it sit there untouched for about 10 mos. and never having done that before was quite strange. He said 'the baby must be coming!' Well within 10-12 hours of that happening, my best friend went into labor and gave birth to her daughter the next day. I thought that was the baby that was coming! Little did we know that our child would be conceived 5 days from that night. Isn't it kinda twilight zone? It has played a few times since then and now I just figure that the bebe is talking to me!

Nothing new today. I plan on getting up bright and early tomorrow to go have my blood work done. I took a nap today so I must have been tired- but no other symptoms. Crampy here and there but that is nothing new. My new belly pic is up for comparison from last week. Check out the BELLY PICS page 5 on November 2007 birth board!

Thanks for reading.

Ha! I made it. I didn't think I would get to this today. It has been a wild and crazy day full of needles, paperwork, more needles, urine samples, fleas, cramping and work.

YES, I said fleas. I had an issue with my dog today. I guess where we moved to has many, many fleas. She keeps getting them (in the frigid winter). UGH! I freaked out to say the least. Thank goodness I got her into PetSmart pronto. DH was wonderful and swept the whole house to rid of flea eggs. We really have to stay on top of this!

So, the stress of that has made me a bit crampy. Maybe it is conincidence?

My HCG results were 292 today. I don't think they plan on running them again but of course my mom said she would do it whenever. That is good because I like to see them increase!

I need to head off as I haven't see DH all day.

Bye for now!

And, I have to pee. I could have said this same thing about every 10 minutes for the last several hours. Wink Ya gotta love it.

I am sorta sick today. Got a weird thing going on with my throat/voice. I feel pretty good though. I think I mighta Oded on black grapes earlier but I think that is what the bebe likes Smile

Some crampiness today and some pressure especially with quick movements. I dunno what that is all about. :?

David and I took Mya and the bebe on our first family walk this evening. That was nice. It was unseasonably warm here... in the 70's. It is suppose to snow over the weekend though! UGH!
DH also talked to the bebe today. That was cute, cute, cute!

I gotta go to bed now! Thanks for stopping by!

Home sick today. I have a cough and throat issue which has left me with no voice or one that goes in and out a lot! I feel worse as the day progresses. I don't know what it is that I have but it is slowing me down!

I was really excited today because I made it to the 5wk. marker. I know it doesn't seem like much for those of you that have been there before... but hey, I am a first timer! Wink

I did a bit of reading in the 'what to expect' book today. It doesn't really interest me too much. I like to talk to my girls on the birth board and with DH but I don't really like to read up on it. The OB gave me this cool magazine with these pictures of an egg that progresses to a baby being born... really high tech ones. Well, of course, it grosses me out. I hate all that veiny looking disgusting junk. YUCK! Nice to know its in there but I think I will like to see the finished package, if ya know what I mean.

I think I need a nap so I am off to lay down. Hope things are good on your side of the computer monitor!

This is darth vader- I am sucking air in like him, anyway.

I decided to do a few things today. First off, I will start posting some links of interest. My mom is going to buy me a cradle. She wants it to be an heirloom type of thing. This is the site that we have concentrated on the most SO FAR!

http://www.netkidswear.com/furniture-craddles.html

We like the vintage antique white one, I really like the cherub one and versallies vintage style one just caught my eye today.

I hear that the baby's room has a lot of great stuff. So we are going to go there soon, too. I think that is where the actual nursery furniture will come from. I'll link ideas some other time!

Next thing I am going to do is post my belly pics. Mind you, this is just for reference and it is full of fat belly bloating pictures. If my belly is something you would rather not see, scroll down really quick!

This is 3w5d...

And 4w4d...

Someone told me to wear the same clothes everytime. I wish I would have started out with something better but at least those pj pants will grow with me! Wink

Here is a pic of my first BFP - HPT...

Ya gotta look really hard to see it, but it is there!

The other thing that I want to do is to change the title of my journal from My to Our. I thought about this last night while laying in bed. So, I'll do that before I am done here!

I am gonna buzz off. I like to check in on my online gals everyday to see how everyone is doing. Some of you know that it is pretty much what I do for the entire day! Wink

Thanks for the love and support.

Still feeling quite like crap. I don't have to work today so that is marvelous. I am suppose to go in tomorrow for the Relay for Life Open House but if I still feel like this, I am not going. Sad

Today I thought I would tell the story about getting my BFP and telling DH. Soooo, I ran out to the store after DH left for work on 3/5 (I didn't even shower first... GASP). I bought 4 tests, 2 Answer and 2 FRER. I used the FRER first with FMU and got the faint positive. Well, I wanted to use the same urine for the Answer test but now it was all in the toilet! What's a girl to do? I swished the sucker around in the water and it didn't ever really show a clear line. IMAGINE THAT :roll:

I called and told my BF right away and tried to get ideas to tell DH. I had this plan (which I might use one day so I cannot tell here) but I would need to be home all day to use it and I had to work that night so that wouldn't work out right. What I finally decided was to buy some baby outfits, one girl and one boy, and put them in a box. I found a father-to-be survival guide and put that on top of the outfits and taped the FRER test to the cover. On the outside of the box, I wrote DAD- but he didn't get it. He was under the impression that it was a "I'm sorry I was a crankpot all weekend" gift. Anyhoot, I had to hide all of it in my trunk and wait until I got home that night to tell him! I had to hide from him at work and everything because right when he was about to come in my office I was waiting for my doc to call with HCG results. Luckily, someone called him away and I went and hid. This worked out fine. I get home finally and hand him the box and he opens it and just stares at it and said "You are?" and then "When?" "When?" I thought to myself 'What do you mean, when? You were there too!' Oh my! Then he proceeded to call his entire family and he couldn't get to sleep that night.

Fun times!

Today DH has to go in to the doc. He is having an issue with some sort of big cyst that keeps growing. It is located in the buttock region and is causing quite a problem. I am sorta worried about this so if you could say a little prayer I would apprecite it!

Toodaloo.

This sickness is kicking my butt! I am feeling even more worn out today. The coughing just doesn't stop. :roll:

David's appt. went okay yesterday. He had to have some kind of absess (how do you spell that?) removed. He is in a lot of pain and on his way back for the doc to look it over. They may have more draining to do.

I was searching baby names last night and I think I have determined that our child will have no name. Nothing is striking my fancy. I would like a name book to look at - wish I felt well enough to go out and look at some stuff.

Some new BFPs coming in on our board. I like that. We have a sort of small group of regular posters. It is nice for more people to be posting. We have lost a few to miscarriages already and that is just so sad. I cannot even imagine how hard that must be.

I noticed when I woke up this AM that my hips hurt when I walked. I thought that was pretty strange. It feels more like soreness from doing something but I didn't do much all day yesterday so I don't know! I'll have to see if it continues. :?

Going to go for now.

Updates...

I am just ill. Am whispering to communicate and feel a lack of energy. Not sure what this means as far as work goes. I have not gone anywhere all weekend and don't plan on going out today.

David's absess is actually more serious that I had thought initially. It is really prone to spreading throughout his body and they have to keep a close eye on it. Yeah, he is taking a broad spectrum antibiotic, but we have been down that road before, right? He has to go in everyday (or have a visiting nurse at home) to re-pack the site as it is draining... EWWW. The doc said this could go on for 3-4 weeks! He may not be able to work either as he cannot sit for long periods of time, bend over, or lift things. He is taking Vicodin still but obviously cannot work on that!

WE ARE QUITE A PAIR!

DH stopped in to Borders yesterday and brought me home a baby name book! Mind you, I can't do anything but be online and read! I went through all of the girls names and didn't even find ONE name that I thought would be suitable. I liked these crazy names for girls... Bennett, Kadelyn and Kaden but I don't think I would name MY child that! Wink

Onto the boys names today. I hope I find something!

Here are my belly shots from yesterday...

Scroll down quick if you don't want to see them!

5w4d

Went to the doc today... yes, it's bronchitis and yes, I am now armed with a work excuse. He told me to take it easy and not talk. He agreed with me that unless I have a fever, no anti-biotics at this point! See, I wasn't crazy!

David just left the doc as well and he got re-packed. That is just so darn disgusting.

I received a phamplet today about being in a placenta study. I think I am going to do it... here is the link:

I am waiting for more info on the 'potential risks' and so forth. The only downside I can see would be the extra trips to . The reason I am really interested is that I get to have extra ultrasounds throughout (4 or 5)! That would be so reassuring. I left a message for the woman who is coordinating the study. I will update you all as soon as I learn more.

I have yet to embark on the boy names. I have not been in the mood to read anything for days. Okay, I am gonna run. The potty is calling and I think the bebe is hungry Wink

My tummy is growling so this will be a short one...

I am better today. Still have lots of clogging in the head but my voice is significantly improved. I intend to go to work today. Suppose to be there at 2p but I have that phone consultation with the nurse so not sure yet how I am gonna work that one out.

Tomorrow is an exciting day because my ticker thingy will say 6wks! Yipee! So many of the gals on my board got their U/S done yesterday. I am SO jealous. Only 8 days away though!

Okay, I am off to eat multi-grain cheerios and some toast.

Bye for now.

I was just laying in bed and realized that I had yet to write today! :?

I had a really bad day at work so I guess I was trying to relax. The stress of my job makes me really think about priorities and stuff. I just don't need that. UGH! Tomorrow is counseling so she will get an ear full.

I am continuing to get better. Still coughing and plenty of drainage. As far as the pg. symptoms go, I am feeling like I HAVE to eat pronto a lot lately. I guess the bebe is eating all my food. I was sick to my tummy this AM but it was related to the food I had last night, not M/S.

My mom told me that she waited up last night to see the ticker change to 6wks. She waited until midnight but it still didn't change. Isn't that just cute?

I think we are planning a trip to Carter's this weekend as well as the Baby's Room store in a local town. That will be fun!

I looked at girls names today and really like the Liv-ish names. Liv, Livvie, Livia. Still haven't thought up any boys names though. Hmmm.

Okay, I wanna go back to bed plus mythbusters is on and I love that show!

Goodnight.

Okay, yes I know, I didn't post yesterday! I was just too tired. By the time I got home and had dinner, it was close to 9 and then I plum tuckered out and fell asleep on the couch. I went up to bed and then realized I hadn't posted. I felt so guilty but was able to rationalize the situation until I really fell asleep! Lol

Today has started off with a bang. The plumber was here and replaced our sump basin so that is good. I already did my toilet cleaning Biggrin and am waiting for my mom to arrive. We are going to the Carter's outlet first and then probably shopping around until we make it to our final destination, The Baby's Room. I am looking forward to that. I have never been there but hear it is a good place to go to see lots of furniture.

I have been having trouble finding foods that sound appetizing. Last night the only thing I could even think of eating was KFC. So, off we went. MMMMMM! I had 2 chicken breasts, almost a LG container of potatoes and a small coleslaw! I could eat it again right now!

I was a bit gaggy when brushing my teeth yesterday. My nose is soooo sensitive that the smell from the toothbrush (makes my stomach turn) and having something in my mouth just does me wrong! I soaked the thing in cleaner and took it all apart (sonicare) but I don't think it completely did the job. Another thing I can't remember mentioning because my brain is on a Friday break, is that tomato sauce just makes me want to be ill. I could withstand it for pizza though b/c I love me some pizza! I used to have an aversion to it anyway if I would leave a (say lasagna) dish soaking in soapy water or something. I HATED that smell of the sauce and water, etc. So now, I think it has just amplified. HA!

Looking forward to taking pictures this Sunday. I am gonna show my hands too because I bet none of you have EVER seen my nails so long AND white. Biggrin The baby wants its mommy's hands to be pretty! Wink If that was the case then it would be dong something to help with the cuts all over my hands due to dry air!

So long for now or 'swingset' to some of you Wink

I changed my avatar pic. Isn't she so funny?

David is off having his dressing changed yet AGAIN and I am really putting off getting ready for the day. I need to do so many things but am feeling a bit funky in my tummy today. My temp has been down .1 for 2 days and I don't really care for that too much-makes me worry.

I was talking to DH today about what we are going to do with the rooms and so forth. Obviously we have to get the bed out of the nursery but I am feeling like I want to move other stuff around. Our current living room arrangement is NOT working. When the bebe comes, I don't really want to have things like they are. I have always thought of making the bonus room a play room for big toys and so forth... I know it is really early to think about that though. Ideally, I would like to finish the basement and then move the furniture from the bonus room down there. I would like a big family room, a bathroom, and a storage room. It would be nice to have another room but I think it would make it way too choppy. I have no idea about how to go about that stuff. I don't want to fork over the mucho bucks for a contractor... I think it might be one of those things that gets put off and put off Wink

Only 4 days until the BIG u/s! Woohoo!

My mom purchased a snoogle pillow for me to sleep with. It is really nice. Also, plug covers Smile , hangers, and the initial M. She is waiting on the first initial! We found a little yellow fleece outfit on sale too so we had to grab that up!

Went to the furniture store and we were both disappointed. We are going to check out the other store sometime soon. I hope it is better. We looked thru magazines and decided against the lifetime cribs. Wanted white but was warned at the store that white furniture has a problem with cracking paint due to the restrictions. I think we have decided on cherry stained wood. I suppose I should let DH have a say though, right? Wink HA!

Okay, enough for now. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

So, I need to catch up!

Sunday we had to be out of town for a b-day party and yesterday I was too tired to post. Work was stressful yesterday and that is mostly worked out. I will probably start to work 3 days a week come the summer time and then as fall progresses, cut it back to 2. That is pretty much what we can afford. I don't really know what we will do when I am off to actually have the baby. There are a lot of ways to go about cutting costs but nothing that is really what we want to do (ridding of cable/internet, etc.) I am thinking of rearranging the student loan stuff. I don't know how many more months I can defer for though. I have been paying on them for months but there is a L-O-N-G way to go! I will figure something out, I am sure.

David is still going in daily for the re-packing. He is very annoyed with this. Things still look good though.

U/S is tmw. I am glad but really nervous too. So scared that something won't be right or whatever. UGH.

Here are my pictures!

The one on the left I was attempting to suck it in and the one on the right is just normal belly.

And here are my lovely nails Wink

And since I am at it, this is me and DH in case you are wondering...

Now to compare first shots with current:

I think I am a lot less bloated now but I haven't eaten yet today either and all the pics before were at night! Wink

I am off to eat breakfast! Will update with u/s pics tmw.! Say a tiny prayer for us.

So, yeah- I am paranoid. I have these really great u/s pics from yesterday on a disk from the u/s tech but I can't edit them to get my full name off so I will have to show you the scanned in ones which aren't nearly as good.

HB was 132! The appt. was really good. They gave me a prescription for some other kind of prenatal vitamin which I have yet to fill. DH was over the moon at the appt. and acting really goofy. Enough to start to get on my nerves. It is funny how calm I am about the whole thing and he is SO over the top. I just keep thinking about how long I have to go and such. It was a very cool experience though!

I have to go back to work today which is kind of a bummer. There is SO much to be done here. We have been sorting stuff to sell at a garage sale in a few months and that has me hopeful! DH is back into picking up cans for the summer mos. He is hoping to save enough to buy some ham radio things that he needs since his old configuration from the S10 won't work in our new truck. I say :roll: Yeah, I know, I am mean- :roll:

One awesome thing I will say is that DH wanted to start writing in a journal to the bebe last night. He let me read the first entry and it is just too darn cute!

I took DH to the furniture store yesterday. He too was not impressed. I am looking forward to actually going somewhere that has what we are looking for. Whatever that is!

Have a good day! The sun is out!

I guess I don't feel so guilty about not writing anymore?

Not too much to update. I am starving right now but have to wait a few more minutes. I am suppose to take one of my medications on an empty stomach and then wait an hour to eat. This is ALWAYS a problem.

Yesterday I had to get up earlier than usual to let the drywaller in to work on our warrantied cracks, nail pops and such. So, by the time that he left, I felt VERY tired. I ended up napping for an hour or so before DH got home. Then I felt cranky. You just can't win. I had a better night of sleep last night- I slept on my stomach which is SO much better than either of my sides.

Had a few waves of the weird throat feeling yesterday that leads to the naseousness. One time my eyes teared up- you know that must have been close. I did whatever I could do to think about ANYTHING else and it seemed to do the trick. I don't know why my throat and upper chest area are so sensitive like that. T-shirt collars drive me crazy. Maybe that means that the bebe will be some kind of crazy kid who likes to be naked ALL the time. :?

Have to turn in our taxes today. We are having a friends' preparer do them because they are cheap. And the reason they are cheap is because they are some hole in the wall office that allows smoking in their offices. This is obviously a problem for me because I don't want to smell like smoke ALL day and I don't want to breathe that into my bebe. Unfortunately this means that DH will go in for me and that means that he has to go out of town with me even though he would much rather do his own thing at home. Makes me feel bad!

I am hoping that any day one of my friends will tell me that she is pregnant with her first. Her husband doesn't want kids right now, to my knowledge, but they are far away so I don't know if she has been able to change his mind yet! DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE? GET BUSY ON THIS! Wink I can't wait for you to be parents! Oh the joys of taking an infant to Fudds, right? Biggrin Happy Birthday, young lady!

Have a fantastic day!

I figured if I didn't write early, I would miss another day. I am about to get ready for work even though I am bummed out that A) I will miss the Tigers' opener and Dirol I have to go to work at all. I feel kinda poopy today- really tired and generally off. I am SO looking forward to the upcoming vacation, not so much the missing pay check but I really do need a break!

So, back to 7wks today. I am looking forward to progressing ahead. I did a lot of exercise yesterday walking/biking while we searched for roadside cans and bottles. We found about 2 grocery sacks full so that is good! Smile DH is really looking forward to the warmer temps when people go to the beaches, throw away their cans, and supplement our income!

Mya is really tired today. She got up once to go potty and then has been sleeping in the old recliner for hours. I think it is funny when she sleeps so much!

Over and out.

Hi!

I am loving the April snow! Wink I hate the frigid temps! I am so happy that today is Thursday! I will be done with my work week very soon. I am looking forward to a vacation! We don't have any plans but it sure will give us some time to catch up on stuff.

Yesterday was an irritating day for me in regard to my RE. I am not sure if I mentioned before but we were suppose to discuss my thyroid levels at my u/s appt. last week. Well, it didn't happen and we forgot to ask until it was too late. I called yesterday to ask what the results were and the nurse said they were 3.57 which is in the 'normal' range. Well, it isn't normal for me. I was up to 3.49 in October and they increased my dosages to get my levels lower. This worked and in December they were .59 which was ideal for someone TTC. Now, with pregnancy, they expect to do some adjusting as the baby does not have its own thyroid initially and uses the mommy's. I am guessing they didn't see it as a problem because they were looking at normal range and not normal range for ME. Longer story shorter, they increased my meds to 150mcgs now and hopefully that will do the trick. It really is quite scary to me though because an underactive thyroid during pregnancy can cause lots of troubles developmentally AND even miscarriage! I am sure my OB would have rechecked it eventually but by then it could have gone wwwwaaaaaay out of control. Gosh darn medical people never know how to do anything. Keep your eyes open when dealing with them b/c they are prone to screw up!!!!

Still feeling good. I am tired but hopefully that is more thyroid related than pregnancy related. Most of my birth board buddies are noticing diminishing symptoms and this is good since I didn't have many to begin with... now maybe I won't get them!

Okay, I am off now. Thanks for checking in! Cripes, I just realized I have to be somewhere in a few hours before work! Off to the shower I go!

We were out eating last night and I coughed. It wasn't even a worth it cough. Wasn't like I was choking or had pnemonia or something. It was more like a clearing throat cough and I felt a gush and even commented on it.

TMI WARNING...

I go to the bathroom to pee before we leave and there is brown surrounded by the regular clear junk. I decided to just go home after that and rest because naturally, I am thinking the worst.

Well, it is know about 15 hours later and I am still seeing brown tinted discharge, when I wipe. I have had a PL on and there are a few dribbles there... nothing like before. I feel like there is no point in calling the dr.'s office. They aren't there and I don't have major cramping or anything although I must say every gas pain I feel I am going a bit crazy.

Looks like my so called vacation will be a worryfest instead. Send some prayers over yonder.

Hi! Happy Easter.

The spotting tapered off yesterday and I have had none today, Praise the Lord! Biggrin I have been really, really tired and have done pretty much nothing all weekend. I would imagine the week will be much of the same.

Here is a funny thing... The girls on my board found a link to some kind of clairvoiant who predicts your birth experience. It asked me some weird questions like my favorite color, last animal I saw, what is the weather like, was I born in a morning... This is what my prediction is!

"The day you deliver, outside will be sunny. Your baby will arrive in the evening.

After a labor lasting approximately 22 hours, your child, a girl, will be born. Your baby will weigh about 6 pounds, 3 ounces, and will be 17 inches long. This child will have green eyes and some very fine hair.

But there is more. I sense that you feel somewhat alone. Have faith; you are not alone. Why don't you visit the message boards and talk to other expectant mothers? I'm sure you will find you have much in common. "

I think that is hysterical that I could be in labor THAT long for such a little baby! She must have my shoulders Wink !!! Maybe that means she is coming earlier? That would be okay by me as long as she is all formed up and stuff!

I am off to try out a new printer cartridge now. Big fun. Later!

Hi!

Where to begin? I wanted to link you up to the crib I am looking at. It is by bonavita, the heritage crib (3in1- not lifetime). Probably looking at the diaper changing dresser and the 6 drawer dresser as well.

http://www.bonavita-cribs.com/heritage.html I just tried that link and it takes you to the lifetime crib... The white one on that page is the right crib but we are getting it in the brown color! If you go to the crib page, you will find the right one.

I haven't seen it in person but it is my fav when looking at pictures!

Went shopping yesterday with my mom and David. We tried the other Baby's Room store in Auburn Hills. There was some difference from the other store in Novi and we definitely got some assistance there. My mom bought the baby a constellation turtle which is really cool. We tried it out last night! Wink

David and I looked at paint colors today. Nothing decided as of yet. We have to take them up to the room and see what it would really look like in there. Maybe tonight?!

Another one of my friends on my board got some bad news today. It is so sad. Sad

I am starting to not fit into my biggest jeans. I tried on some maternity clothes at Target today but they didn't fit right. The pants were too big in the hips and my bbs were bulging out of a XXL shirt! YIKES! Went to JCP and they had a whopping 3-4 racks. Nice, huh? I can see this is gonna be a problem. I am in need of some rightly fitting clothes! Someday...

Looking forward to the results show on American Idol tonight. We missed the performances last night but heard that only Blake did well. Hmmm!

Later!

I am feeling sleepy and am trying to squeeze this in before I lose all of my energy!

Today was my initial visit for the growth study. It was pretty fun. I brought DH and my mom. Had some blood drawn, answered some questions, weight, height, etc. Then we got to do an u/s! They gave us 8 pictures! Woohoo. I was so happy that they saw everything and they didn't even have to do it trans-vaginally! Smile

Baby is doing spectacular. HB was 179 AND they moved me back up to 9wks which perfectly matches the day I said that I had conceived ALL ALONG! New EDD is 11/16. Smile Hopefully bebe will be here before Turkey Day!

I will get the pictures up sometime but it probably won't be tonight. I also have some belly shots from a few days ago to post. I know, I am SO far behind.

Mom bought me some much needed maternity clothes today. I got lots of cute pants and found some shirts that will do. Having a tough time in that area as most of the shirts are empire waisted which is good, but the cut isn't deep enough for my girls! Wink !

Thank you, mom!

Don't know what else is new. This is the end of my 'vacation' and I don't look forward to working on Monday. I know, I am SO lame + spoiled!

Found out one of my favorite neighbors is pg and due in about 4 wks. This is her third, first boy after her two adorable daughters. I couldn't believe she was pg, too! Smile Must be in the H20.

Nighty night for now.

It is our anniversary! Biggrin We picked up our cake from the bakery yesterday. I got up really early to fill out the card I had bought a week ago but of course, he did his last night and beat me to it! We also have coffee cake for breakfast and bebe is hungry!

Here are the pics I promised from the u/s a few days ago. One says 9w the other 8w6d. So, somewhere around 11/16 or 11/17.

I framed the best one and its on the fridge. I swear you can see what will be the spine in it. I liked that even though it is kinda gross!

Yesterday I missed my girls' day to be with DH. We droved over to get our cake and made a pit stop at DQ. I was SO bad. I wanted a raspberry Mr. Misty and got that and a Kit Kat blizzard! I usually try and stay away from the chocolate but it sounded really good at the time. I wish now that I hadn't of had it b/c I have had a bad stomach ever since. I hope it wears off today. I crave salad a lot too but that also makes my stomach mad. Isn't that just crazy?

We don't have any BIG plans for today. I hope we think of something and I hope my energy stays around. Had to nap yesterday before dinner time and that was a good one!

I took some pics yesterday with the digital camera so I will post those soon. It is downstairs and I don't feel like going to get it right now! Wink

Hi!

Wanted to check in. Things are going well. Went to work yesterday and managed to get thru the day despite yawning every few minutes. I am allowing for more time between appts. which is good because it reduces the number of kids I see each day and helps give me potty time, eating time, relaxing time, etc!

I am dreaming up ways to reduce our monthly payments to accomodate me not working as much later this year or at all for awhile once bebe comes. I have thought of a few things but need to talk to other people about my bright ideas first! Wink

My boss is all about the baby and wanted to search online at potterybarnkids for cute patterns and such. Cracks me up.

I gotta go eat and walk. I lifted my 5lb weights yesterday to firm up my chest/back fat and I am feeling it today. No pain, no gain, RIGHT?

Still haven't brought the camera up but it has made it one room closer. HA!

This one is gonna be short.

Last night I had a complete hormonal meltdown. I had a rough day coupled with a non-stop headache and then I got set off by something and was upset for hours. DH didn't know what to do to console me and is convinced it is his fault, which it isn't. I still felt poopy this morning but feel better now. I really hope it doesn't happen again... Sad

I am almost done with my night at work and then I have have the long drive home. I am in the middle of a good book on CD though so I think I will be okay fine.

Only one week until my first OB appt! Yippee!

10 WEEKS! Yippeeee.

So glad to be home today. I am running behind getting all of my stuff done here but that's okay! Wink

Yesterday I woke up and my belly seemed to have grown substantially (to me anyway). It is sorta silly.
I like it though. I had some weird pain thing by my belly button which I am assuming is an oncoming stretch mark. It was funny because it felt like a sore ON my skin, not on the inside. Seemed to get better after I put my special lotiony junk on it.

5 days until my appt. Seems like I have been waiting for it for soooo long. I have plenty to say but not too much is pregnancy related.

1. The landscape people still haven't come to put our line back in the ground after the sidewalks they put in. It is just laying in our yard which looks bad and is dangerous... We were told it would be done by tomorrow! :roll:

2. The drywaller STILL has not come back to sand. UGH.

3. We are going to see the TIGERS tonight! Looking forward to being with my friends.

I think I'll stop there. Smile Hope everyone has a good weekend! DH and I are still planning on coming up and over on Sunday!

I like this time of day- AND the weather is nice. No one is outside or anything! Smile

Had a really busy weekend and now I am feeling it! Went to the game on Friday, painted the well ventilated garage all day Saturday :roll: and went to visit with family on Sunday. We worked at the cemetary too which was really hot and made me feel woosy. What a whiner! Wink I was fairly tired by the time we got home last night. DH worked on final touches in the garage and I picked up the kitchen, etc.

Not too much is new- we didn't do any shopping on Friday so nothing new to report there! Wink Only 2 days until my appointment! YAY!

Our landscaping irrigation stuff did get fixed but the drywaller has yet to call. We have the final deck permit on application now so it is only a matter of time. Biggrin

Thanks for checking in.

So, I never really have thought of my car as my baby. That all changed last night. Starting at 3ish AM, it started waking me up every few hours...

Now you are thinking, WHAT?

Here is the deal. I drove over some RR tracks last week because the baby wanted some Subway so I had to drive slightly out of my way- a path I don't usually traverse. Soon as I went over them, I had a msg. on my dash that told me that my door was ajar. So, I stop, close my doors and the msg. doesn't go away. Everyday that I have driven my car since, the msg. is there and the dome light stays on. That is an easy fix, I turned the dome light off. Last Friday, we were driving thru Detroit and this person was panhandling at a stoplight and I got nervous so I went to lock the doors and GUESS WHAT? The drivers' side door won't lock! DH had to manually press the little lock down and then it was fine. HMMMMM- this makes me think that the door that is ajar must be the drivers' door. Anyhoot, 3amish, I hear one of the alarms going of on the vehicles. They are both in the driveway b/c we are working in the garage. I run downstairs only to have it turn off. I feel so bad for my neighbors as they probably listened to it for several minutes. DH checks it out and we figure it must be thinking the door is open again. We are both feeling quite angry at this point! I couldn't get to sleep worrying that it would happen again and I wouldn't hear it again so I opened the other bedroom door and window to make sure. Stupid me, didn't get the keys to turn it off- and it happens again at 5ish AM... DH had to get up around that time anyway so he got up with the baby that time! Wink He also took the fuse out for the horn so we wouldn't have to deal with that again.

My car diagnosis is that there is a fuse for the door? that is loose from the RR tracks. Had one of those loose fuses for something else when the car was brand spankin' new... Just have to go look at it. I hope my neighbors haven't taken a baseball bat to it, yet!

My OB appt. is this afternoon and DH is meeting me there. I am excited to go but so very tired today! Rain doesn't help much either! I will KYP!

So the short version of my appt. is that the baby seems to be doing well. She didn't do an u/s, Sad , so it is hard to tell exactly but the doppler said the bebe's heart rate was 180 bpm. She said everything else, apparent size of uterus, cervix, etc. is right on target. We had another disagreement about my due date which kinda made me not like her but oh well. She was basing her estimations off of that 1st u/s which is wrong. She doesn't have access to the 2nd set so what do you do? "It's all academic- 4/5 days" :roll: To her. BLAH. Anyhoot. Before I went in, I took a nap b/c I was feeling a bit tired/lethargic. I woke up feeling completely STARVING which was just prior to leaving. I shoved down some nutritious soy dogs and chips and left. Usually at my appts. I am worked up and my BP is soaring higher than normal but today she took it twice b/c it read 90something/64. This is REALLY low for me but they didn't make much of it because they have no baseline to work from. Geegollywhiz. I drank and drank lots of water yesterday to help things-but I don't really know what the heck is going on. It is always so funny that the days I take off work I feel like it is a good thing b/c I am usually a tired mess. Must be the anxiousness leading up to it that wears me out.

Next OB appt. is 5/30. That office makes me miss my RE office. Here I am suppose to let myself in, immediately give a pee sample :roll: that is hard to do and weigh myself before someone will acknowledge me and take me to a room. I guess that doc office must have had to make some cuts! Lol

The clerk person actually scheduled all of my monthly appts. which is kinda fun. She said by the end of August I will start going every 2 wks! They won't be doing an u/s there unless the doppler doesn't work until the BIG U/S on 6/27. We aren't gonna find out but still! Wink

Have a good day. Hope the sun is shining where you are!

Belly Pic Time! You ask and you shall receive. Smile

It is really hard to label them by date so here goes a listing:
3w3d, 4w2d, 5w2d, 6w4d, 8w2d, 9w6d, 11w3d

Not too much to add. I had an exhausting weekend. I stayed up waaaay too late Saturday night with friends. Didn't get to sleep until 1230 or 1amish. Yikes. Sunday, I mowed the yard and tried to use our edger but DH ended up having to do that as I was too tired. I must have taken about 3 cat naps yesterday! :roll: We hung some of the organizing junk in the garage but I am not happy with it right now. I want DH to lower it but we'll see how that goes! We need another shelving unit out there but I think they run about 50 dollars so I don't know when we will get that. We want it to match the one that is already there so no cheaping out! Wink Maybe by sometime next summer we will be able to park our cars in the garage! Lol

The postholes are being put in today. Inspection is tmw. so the dude plans on beginning actual construction on Wednesday. That will be nice! Thanks again, mom!

Toodaloo!

HI! It has been quite some time but there is not too much to report.

Thought I would share the start up pics of the deck though! Here goes...

Deck on the truck... wood sent back for better boards!

One shot of some of the posts... didn't want to bore you too much with these...

Beginning to take shape! View from bedroom-

And a belly pic from yesterday!

Not much new pregnancy wise to report. I am feeling better but still sleepy. I think I am fighting off something but other than that, doing good!

Here are the final pics of the deck. Isn't it pretty? We were told it wouldn't pass inspection as is because the step level to the ground is 2 inches too tall. We are about to make a trip to the local home store to get some pavers and so forth to raise it up. :roll: I wish it would just be done for heaven's sake!

And our little baby dog laying in the mulch! What a mess.

Since I don't have too much to say these days, I thought I would start posting pics of the baby's closet and stuff so far. That is fun, right?

Tomorrow is my 2nd Grow Study appt. and I am really excited to go. Smile
Will have lots more pics tmw.!

This is a pic of a blanket DH and I bought over a year ago. It is soft. I love soft blankets!

Yet another soft blanket. I hope the softness encourages sleep! ;)This one is thin but of course, silky and soft. It matches the following outfits!

I am gonna finish with the blankets and be done for today. Don't want to excite you too much! HA!

My mom made me 2 baby blankets a few years back but I didn't take pics of them yesterday. I will get to that and load 'em up right here...

Hi! Here are some pics from today.

These 2 are the baby laying on its' side...

The first of these is baby's foot and the second is a frontal view (those are always a bit creepy in u/s format!)

Baby was measuring 13w2d today! Wowee!

We went to pick out the furniture too. What a dilemma. I went in thinking I would order the bonavita set that I had linked earlier but then was trying to decide between that and another one (white) but worried about the cracking white paint. After hours of being confused and unhelpful sales people, we found a cherry version of the white furniture and went with that. Here is the link!

The crib: http://www.babyage.com/products/102-14-215_young_america_furniture_young_america_madison_crib.htm

The changing table: http://www.babyage.com/products/102-14-301-300_young_america_furniture_young_america_single_dresser_wchanging_station.htm

The dresser: http://youngamerica.stanleyfurniture.com/youngamerica/Browse.do?groupNumber=41&nav2=YSTORACHES&sku=102-14-12&nav1=YSTORAGE

Thank goodness the store was having a sale, holy cow! It is suppose to be here in 8-10 wks. so we have to get moving on nursery ideas and painting and moving of furniture! Yowzers.

Hope you all liked those pics as much as I did!

Hi there.

So, today is TP Tuesday again and I am still at 11 squares. I thought for sure I was fatter. Lol

I shall do more pics today. I guess I'll show the gender neutral clothes I have acquired to this point. Biggrin

These are Christmas outfits we picked up months ago when they were really, really marked down!

Classic Pooh Onesies and Regular ones:

Bath Time Gear:

Some outfits:

Bibs and Burp Cloths:

Special Disclaimer: Even though you see several pooh types of things, I am in NO way doing any kind of pooh theme!

Well, I keep waiting for the site to make it's transition. I have backed up my posts and don't want to do many more because the saving process is time consuming. I am not sure how the new format will work and think I will lose all of my posts and pics in the switch. I can reload them but YUCKA!

I am doing well. We will be visiting DH's family this weekend. I hope I do okay with the car ride. It will be one of those whirlwind trips! Smile

Still at 11 squares today... I know the belly is bigger but my size seems to shrink or stay the same with the TP measuring. Very strange!

Later gators.

Well, I keep waiting and waiting but no changes on the board yet! Thought I would check in briefly though.

Went to southern Illinois over the weekend for dh's family reunion. Had fun, ate a lot, and had a much cozier ride in the larger vehicle. Poor Mya though. She is a sleeper in the car.

Wanted to post my newest belly pic from today:

Oh, and some further pics of clothes... These are the boy outfits we have.

Tomorrow is my 2nd OB appt. I am looking forward to going- wondering how much I will weigh! Still at 11 squares today!

Have a good day and I will check back soon.

My OB appt. went fine. HR was 156.

I think that my tummy grew a lot over the weekend. I will have to post some pics soon.

Here are the girly outfits...

I have a few newer things that were given to me but no pics of those yet. Wink

So, after much deliberation and stress and worry, we have decided on the bedding for the nursery. I know it is early but we had to pick something in order to know what color to paint! Our painting day is slated for 7/7. This bedding isn't at the store where we will be registering so we are also registering online for the bedding and maybe some other stuff. Here is a pick of the crib set:

Although it has some boy features (tractor, etc.) we think there are some girly ones too like flowers and pretty gingham. I think it will go either way and am glad to have something decided on!

We guesstimate that the furniture will be in late July or early August. How exciting! Tentative shower date is for 9/29 so mark your calendars. Smile Further details to come!

Me again. Although when I wrote that it first came out 'Me gagin' which is probably close to the truth. I got a headache yesterday at work and it got worse as I slept last night, go figure. DH bought me some Tylenol and I took a few about an hour ago and it seemed to help but is now coming back. I thought for sure it would be a full migraine last night as I was really gaggy and that hasn't happened for sometime. I need to leave work and stop clenching for starters- This is my last day of work until Monday so that will be nice. I really need to relax. I have felt sorta achey today so I hope it isn't turning into something else. YUCK.

Mom said the paint arrived at her house via UPS yesterday. I am glad it was so quick! Biggrin I can't wait to get started on that.

That is all for now. I am off to eat some fruit or something.

Well, I think that the crappiness from last week must have been work related. I have felt better as far as the headache goes since I last worked.

We went to the zoo on Saturday. It was fun but really hot and I suddenly became REALLY exhausted toward the end. I slept on the way home, took an hour and a half nap once we got home and then slept thru the night. Sunday, I still felt run down and HAD to lay around almost the entire day. Later, I went with DH to get cans (we got almost $30 worth) and over did it again as my allergies were in full swing. Needless to say, I think I learned a lesson about doing stuff like that while pregnant- it just doesn't work. I had no idea during the day on Saturday that I would feel so bad later. I started bronchitis coughing over the weekend and hope, hope, hope it goes away and doesn't turn into my favorite illness ever.

We have the paint for the nursery now. Only four more weeks 'til we get to put it on the wall. We have made mini plans for the end of this month to go on a bit of a road trip up north. We are hoping this pans out but have yet to check into the cost of things and so forth. DH has never been to the UP and I haven't either since I was little. It would be a fun time!

That's it for now. Only 4 more days until the GROW appt! Yippee!

Well, I measured and guess what? STILL 11 SQUARES!

Here is the latest and greatest belly pic which doesn't show much change from last week even though I can tell a difference.

Is it my mind lying or the TP and camera? Lol

I accidentally had on the same pj's today that I did last week so it makes it even more confusing. 2 more days until my appt. Woohoo! I want new pics!

Signing off for now.

Well. My appt. on Friday was fairly uneventful. Thought I would be funny and drink some sips of root beer prior to going in so that bebe would be awake. Well, the joke is on me and the u/s tech. Bebe was dancing all over the place and kept kicking the cord which was interfering with their measurements of the placenta! Lol I said that the bebe must have like the Frosted Flakes from breakfast but I didn't mention the root beer! Wink

HR was measuring an avg. of 160bpm (so high still) and I am still measuring 2 days ahead of my due date. At least that is consistent! Now for the goods:

Not much else is new. Had another busy weekend... back to work today! Check back tmw. for updated belly pic and TP tally! Are you taking any guesses on what THAT will be? Lol
