Jina - That will be nice for M to get to spend time with his dad. :) I agree with Jessica, I have a terrible time keeping a secret, I would never make it 18 weeks!!! You are made of steel, lady! Happy Birthday to M. I bet finding out he's having his son is the best birthday present ever. :D
I was thinking of you today at lunch, btw. Had a YUMMY salad that I made at Whole Foods. *drool*
Jessica - I'm lazy right now too. I think we're allowed to be a little lazier than usual; making people is hard work!
AFM - We are going to a football game at DH's school tonight. Should be fun. T likes seeing the big kids. :) Tomorrow T has his tumbling class. Other than that, not sure, but I'm sure we will go see DH's grandma at some point because she is not doing well at all (she's in hospice care.) Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Alissa, I wish everyone thought like you did. Got a phone call from my boss after I got home from work. They want me at another location next week. The lady who works at the other place had an emergency, so I'm gonna pull her shift and someone will pull mine. I don't really mind - I've worked there before, but I'm gonna have to leave at like 330 in the morning to get there on time. Plus, the days they have me over there are my normal eaaaaaasy days.
Oh well, feels good to be needed! I told my boss to tell them I'm pregnant and I will not be lifting ANYTHING. Haha.
How is everyone's weekend going?
Ours is good. We went to the football game last night, which was lots of fun. Today we took T to gymnastics and then to deposit the money in his piggy bank in his bank account. DH also had this Ovaltine jar literally full of change (that's where he puts all of his change to save it) that he cashed in at the same time, and also put that money into T's savings account. I was amazed, DH and T combined had $216 in change!!!! It took them forever to run through the change sorting machine. I don't think I've ever seen that much change in my life. Anyway, then T and I went to lunch, and then I took T to Jump Street (has bouncy castles and trampolines for kids to jump on.) After that, we stopped by my parents' house for about an hour to visit. Pshew, I am wiped out!!!!
Tomorrow I want to spend most of the day at home, thinking about cleaning and putting it off....:lol:
Yesterday I worked. I found out the lady that I have to go work for has been suspended. I called a friend at that store to find out what was going on and he said he wasn't sure, but loss prevention was there and they think she's been stealing. She has been working at that store for ....26 years I think. AND another guy, who does the same thing at ANOTHER place got fired too. It's like they're going after everyone with my job title. So not cool. So I got paranoid and talked to my boss. I get a drink every morning before the store opens, but as soon as the store opens I go up there with my empty bottle and pay for it. He said I probably shouldn't do that anymore. I would be PISSED if I got fired over that. I will stop, but now I'm worried. I also told my boss that he better not let me get stuck over there. I work in a slow store... my boss is pretty awesome and I know everyone and I don't want to move to another store...but I know they're gonna push me because they need someone who knows what they're doing.
DH and I had a heart to heart. I have been so wound up with MEN lately, it's not even funny. I mean seriously, I've been hating on everyone. It all started with my brother...who's not going to school and who stays out all night long and then sleeps all day and does nothing around the house. When I do ask him to do something, he's either too "busy", doesn't have time or huffs and puffs about it. Anyway, he broke his phone. Which somehow became my problem and he was a TOTAL JERK to me after it happened.. and I had nothing to do with it! I'm really over him. Anyway, DH and I were talking about it..and DH said he wasn't going to say anything, he'd let the ball stay in my court, but whatever I choose to do, he'll back me 100%. Then he said my brother will never come between him and I - because he loves me and he'll never leave me. So, of course I busted into tears.. but it was good :)
I have an u/s Wednesday. I have been slightly freaking out about it. Some mornings when I wake up, my m/s is gone. It always comes back, but it worries me that it takes leave for a few hours. And someone posted on a thread of mine that the gestational sac is supposed to be round and if it's not it usually means m/c. ****. Mines round-ish but definitely not a circle. It looks sorta like a tall bell, with short sides...everything is rounded, the baby being in the top of the bell. So now I'm concerned that the doc wanted me to come back in 2 weeks, not to hear the heartbeat (which we did SEE), but maybe he was concerned about the shape of the sac?
This is really long. Sorry I'm a hot mess.
Sorry things are stressful at work and at home with your brother right now. It definitely sounds like your brother is going through a rough spot right now. (((HUGS))) Sounds like your hubby is awesome though, and I'm sure that support helps. :)
Is your doctor the type to tell you if s/he has concerns? That is one thing I can say about my doc, he's not always the most reassuring because he always tells me anything that could possibly be a concern, but on the other hand, I trust that if he didn't bring it up, it's not an issue. If you look at my u/s pictures on My April Space (link in signature) you can see the shape of the sac pretty well in the last pic, and it is definitely not a perfect circle, but when the tech did the u/s she kept saying "Nice and round." I don't think they are looking for a perfect circle, just a rounded shape. Anyway, my philosophy for this pregnancy is "Try not to let things people say on the internet stress you out." LOL! I know that's easier said than done though. If you're really super worried, call your doc, but I really do think that you're fine.
Actually, the doc that did the u/s, I've only seen once before. I'm not a "regular" patient of his. When I had the chemical preg, I went to talk to someone over there because I was gonna change doctors...and he was the one I spoke with. He was pretty much to the point, but irked me a little because he said I wasn't "really" pregnant since I had a chemical. Well, my hcg said otherwise...but anyhow.. When I had the ectopic, I had another doctor whom DH doesn't really like because when I told her something was wrong, she kept blowing me off.. turns out there was something wrong and it's a good thing I pestered them about it.
The u/s pic, I wish I knew how to upload it so you can look at it. I think I'll try to figure it out. Anyway, the pic is like..way up close.. I remember he said here's a long shot of your baby and he zoomed in like 5 times , so the baby is right in the middle of the picture, but I can't actually see one corner of the sac. He didn't seem worried. He pointed out the yolk sac and the baby..we saw the heartbeat...he saw the cyst on my right ovary...looked around for another ectopic.. but in answer to your question, I'm not sure if he would have said something. He's not an ultrasound tech, he's an actual doctor, so he COULD have told me.. I'm thinking maybe if you went back to a long shot it'd atleast look more circular.
And your u/s at 6w5d (which is when I had mine) looks way different than your u/s at 7w...I don't remember the days. Do you know why?
I assume it's just different angles and different levels of zooming in. :)
When do you talk to your regular doctor again?
Wednesday..at 1030. but it's just another ultrasound. I haven't seen my doctor since this pregnancy.
Alissa, Yes, M is really looking forward to it. Haha! Have you tried their Broccoli Crunch? OMGosh, you have to try it next time, K? I just buy it by the pound and grab a fork and start chomping down. :D I'm glad you guys had a nice time at the game. Sounds like a pretty busy weekend so far.
Omgosh, I am totally LMFAO over here about the change. You know how M is a serious coin collector? Well, he has a pretty impressive collection that he's been working on since he was born. His grandfather is a serious collector and got him started on it. Anyway, he has this massive collection of coins that is worth a **** ton of money but he also has a collection of loose change. Like jars and jars filled with coins. I'm thinking that each jar probably has 3-4 hundred dollars in it. Anyway, I suggested that he take it to coin star and he got really upset. LOL!! He was like, WHY?! HELL NO!!! It's MY CHANGE!!! Hahahahaha! Holy crap.....:ROFL:. My hubby is a change hoarder. :rolleyes:
Ugh! I have to clean too.
Jessica, I totally agree with Alissa about the gestational sac. Some look perfectly round and others look like bananas because of the angle of the picture. I have a DVD of my u/s sessions and depending on the angle of the wand, my sac sometimes looks round and other times like a lima bean. lol I wouldn't worry too much about the shape of the sac as long as there is a healthy little bean in there.
I'm sorry about your brother. I hope he starts getting his act together asap! Oh and I agree that your DH sounds like a wonderful guy. :D
Good luck at your u/s!!
AFM, We finally started telling a few people. Not everyone. Just close family members. They are all extremely excited and happy for us. At first, people didn't really get it because they thought we were talking about BIL and SIL's pregnancy. Hahaha! We just never talk about wanting kids so people just assume that either we don't want them or we're just not ready. Anyway, it seems more real now. We did some more shopping and I bought more clothes and shoes. I need to quit buying so many clothes for baby! Haha! I'm going to stop because I want him dressed in the latest styles. :D
Hmmm...I thought I had more to say but my mind went blank. I'll be back later....:rolleyes:
I hope everyone is having a great Sunday!!!
I thought it would be fun to have a thread where we share pics of anything and everything. Like, belly pics, baby stuff, food that you ate, nursery ideas....you get the idea. What do you think ladies?
