First Trimester

Finding out!

So wednesday I went to the doctor to go get my yearly woman's check up. I was telling my doctor about some problems I have been having, and she suggested they do a pregnancy test on me while I'm there. Not even 10 seconds after she told the nurse to check my pee she came running into the room to tell me I was pregnant! I was shocked at first but it slowly started to kick in Oh my goodness I am really having a baby!

Settling in (July 14)

You settled in this week. I had cramping last week which was disconcerting. I was seriously tired this past weekend, but week 5 seems to suit you. I picture you as being in a protective shell like a bird egg. I'm getting more confident that I'll be able to carry you through this.

I had a dream last night that you are a girl. I was relieved that you were, because that meant I wouldn't have a little boy peeing on me when I change diapers. I also dreamed that labor was easy but breastfeeding was a mess!

I see the doctor for the first time today. I am very excited.

I knew (July 4)

I knew when I was taking a walk with Erin around the Woodland Park Rose Garden on Wednesday. Later that night I knew when I took a sniff of leftover caprese salad and almost gagged. I texted your Aunt Jenn and asked her if I could be pregnant. She said it was too early. The next morning I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, but I knew. Then this morning when I couldn't sleep I got up at 4:45am and took another test, and there you were. I ran back upstairs, jumped on the bed and woke up your dad to tell him.

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.

Telling my husband

I ran out of the house this morning in a mood to go shopping for groceries. I stopped at Walgreens to pick up a digital preg. test, since I had goten a faint pink line earlier in the morn. I bought it, asked the woman at the counter if they had a bathroom, and she pointed to the back of the store. "Goodluck!" she said, giving me a wink. I marched in, peed on that stick and turned it face side down.

First Doctor's Appointment

Dear Midwife,

I just recently found out that I am pregnant. I missed my monthly and took a home test it came out positive. I am very happy about this. I have made a doctor's appointment, however it is not for another 2 weeks. I am a bit nrevous about this first appointment as I have no idea what is going to happen or what to expect. So I was wondering what to expect at this appointment, what questions will be asked, what will be done and things I should be asking about?

Thanks so much.

morning sickness

Well I have only known that I am pregnant for about a week however I have suspected it for almost 2 weeks now.

Been feeling extremly sick. Lots of cramps in the lower abdoment and this morning on my way to church, had my very first bout of throwing up morning sickness. I had to sing at church and I was the only one, so started to pray really hard that I would be able to make it throw mass without having to throw up again.

Constantly thinking abt the weeks I'm in

So It's my first baby and recently I was confused on how many weeks preg I am until I called up and found out. I was told I'm in my 5th week and all this time I was thinking 6th. Anways, now i'm a little nervous and also disappointed that i'm still so early into my preg..i guess i wanted the first trimester to fly by so i can start showing and tell others abt it. I'm constantly thinking abt my can I help myself to relax? Is anyone who went thru the same thing as I am. It's my first too so I think that has alot to do with it. I tried reading but my mind keeps drifting .

Waiting Welton's

Today was a big day...
Today started off as a normal day off of work. Throughout the day I was mostly relaxed. This evening we went to meet our new doctor. Dr. Conter has been my fiancée's doctor for a long time, and after I met him, I knew he would be the right doctor to help us welcome our new bundle of joy into this world. He is very personable, and approachable.


Wow I cannot believe how amazing this feeling is I remember just in may missing my period hoping to have a BFP and instead a BFN! My period came 3 days late! I felt like this will never happen, june 29th comes and I missed my period again, but this time I got a BFP and I have been in shock all week, just to know this is really happening to me, it amazes me how fast my baby is developing already at 5 weeks, the heart has all 4 chambers wow, its like a dream everytime I wake up I say "WOW I'M PREGNANT!"
