Waiting Welton's

We got married. On Saturday September 4th 2010. It almost didn't happen. first of all... the day before was a VERY busy one. There was lots of running around, driving here and there, picking things up, ferrying out of town guests around, and just plain trying to get ready for the wedding.

Adderall during pregnancy

Hello! I am 15 weeks pregnant and am on Adderall for ADD (and it also helps with my depression and anxiety). There is very little information available about this medication and its use during pregnancy. Before I was pregnant I took 30 MG a day (20 XR in the morining and a 10 MG in the afternoon). Now I just take a 20 XR during the week and nothing or a 10 MG on the weekends. I am curious as to whether anyone else is on it or was on it during their pregnancy and how things turned out.

Today is Sunday, on Wednesday I thought I had a doctor's appointment. It turned out that it was supposed to have been on Tuesday; and I missed it! This made me really disappointed because we were told by Dr. C at last month's visit (when we couldn't find our baby's heartbeat) that we would definitely be able to hear it this time... I actually began to cry when the receptionist told me that Dr. C wasn't in and that I would have to reschedule our appointment.

A slow Saturday

Today we didn't do much. We woke up early and spent some time cleaning. I am having some anxiety about you today. You have to understand that I want you to be perfect. I need to take my temperature and make sure it is still high. The cramping was less today and still no spotting. We will be going with my dad to church tomorrow morning.
It says on the calender that you already formed your major organs! Wow, you sure grow fast- just like my boobs right now.

Painting & Pregnancy

Okay, so I have been doing quite a bit of online research about this topic, so I thought I would share. I'm an artist (on the side) and I wanted to find out what paints are safe to use while pregnant. So here you go, as short of a summary as possible, if you want to know more, you can google it, hehe, but I don't mind answering what I can:

Waiting Welton's

Today we went to the hospital to have a second ultra-sound and some blood work done. My fiancée made plans to go into work late, again, so that he could be present for the fascinating "picture show". There was lots of questions and paperwork, and Kris really wasn't thrilled with sitting through all of that, but as soon as they put the jelly on my belly he was in a trance. He stared at the monitor, waiting for the "show" to start. When the ultra-sound machine touched my belly, there was a quick arm movement from baby.
