Since Im starting this at 16 weeks and 5 days, let me do a recap of what has happened uptil this point.
I caught baby fever and me and Alex decided it was time to start a family. We are stable enough with each other to do so. It was August 21st, and I was expecting af any day. I took a pregnancy test, and it was negative. I was heartbroken, but kind of also didn't expect to get pregnant on my first cycle of trying. August 24th came around and I still hadn't gotten my period. Alex was convinced I was pregnant and had been telling me I was even though I got the negative hpt. So I took another test and IT WAS POSITIVE!!!!!!!! That day we went to a water park and of course I didn't go on any big rides. It's amazing how the protective nature of a mother kicks in right away.
The next couple weeks were pretty smooth. No morning sickness right away, just alot of bloating. I thought I was getting pretty huge FAST. I probably gained most of my weight during this time lol. Then I went away to toronto on Sept 7th. While I was there the real morning sickness set in. I was also eating better though. Alex had a real hard time without me, and I would cry when I missed him. The pregnancy hormones weren't easy on me.
When I was almost 10 weeks I started spotting. It scared the heck outta me. I cried my eyes out and thought for sure that I had lost my baby. I went to the ER and spent about 700+ dollars but found out that baby was okay, and got to have an ultrasound!!!!!!!! Baby was the most beautiful sight I have ever seen.
Im glad I am back home with Alex. It is really important for me to be with my fiance during this time. It is so cute when he gets up with me when I have to puke in the middle of the night and holds my hair out of my face. I am so in love with him.
We had an ultrasound at 15 weeks and three days, ON MY BIRTHDAY!! Baby was measuring on track. I asked the technician for a guess on what she thought the gender was, but baby wasn't letting anyone have a peek. My gut feeling is girl right now. I would be happy either way though. I scheduled my big gender ultrasound this morning for Dec 4th, then we will finally know!!
That is all for now, I am at work and dealing with an anal customer on the phone right now. Grrrr!
Morning sickness is finally starting to let up a little, as I started week 16.
