Preparing for Baby
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.
Here's a list of some of the positive attributes you'll need as a father which you can intentionally begin to grow during pregnancy alongside all the growth happening to your baby and its mother:
Having a baby is a game changer in terms of your health coverage as well. For most young couples, this may be the most important single use of their insurance, so it is important to get it right.
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.
Well I told the babies Dad last night that I was pregnant. It must have been the scariest thing I have ever done in my life. I love him a lot and didn't want to loss him. In the past 2 years he has repeatedly said he is not ready for kids, does not want any right now and would probably leave if any came.
My husband and I decided to try for a baby and five days before my 30th birthday I found out I was pregnant. At first I was surprised since the only position we did was on top (don't be fooled by gravity). Then came fear and then excitment. Imagine throwing a big birthday bash for yourself and not drinking ;). Luckily no one noticed since everyone was busy mingling and getting drunk. As for me, I remained in my safe kitchen majority of the night. I am now in my 5th week and it is quite exciting. No hint of morning sickness yet...not that I want it but somehow I thought I might have it.
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.
I am getting a late start on this whole blog thing. But I think that it will be good for me so that it will keep my mind off of other things. I am 34 weeks along. I am going to my dr.'s appointment tomorrow so we will be able to hear his little heartbeat and check on his health. I feel like I am super fat but my friends and family keep telling me that for as far along as I am I am very small still. I have a wonderful fiance who is super excited. This will be our first child. It is a boy and we cant wait to hold him. When our son arrives he will be met by our two 4 legged children.
So this entry should predate the first one, but I hadn't wanted to start getting excited until we had a confirmed due date, however here are some pre-prenatal checkup thoughts and observations:
