Seeing as though I’m now 12 weeks, I’m going to start using my other blog as a baby blog. I don’t know if I will keep this one, or if I will just use it as a personal one…but if you want the other link (and don’t already have it obviously), let me know.


May 10

I have honestly never been this hungry in my life. I can’t get over it.


Update

May 9

We’re almost there, almost at 12 weeks. Today it is 11 weeks, 2 days. I have my next doctor appointment on Monday to make sure everything’s going well.

Everything has gone well so far, I haven’t had any more sickness which has been nice. I am starving all the time, I eat breakfast and am starving by 10:30, then again by 12:30 and then again around 3:30, then again by 6. It just never stops. I haven’t had many cravings, although yesterday I REALLY wanted ice cream, so my husband and I walked to Dairy Queen and I got a Blizzard. When I have a salty craving it’s for chips. Overall it hasn’t been bad though.

My bump has started to show a bit. I got my husband to take a picture on Sat so I will post that when I figure out where he saved it. My mom took me maternity clothes shopping (She’s SO excited) on the weekend, and it was a lot of fun. I got some really cute capris/pants that I can wear now, and through the pregnancy.

And no, we will not be naming the baby Will (girl or boy) lol


Success!

May 4

We’ve officially made it past the amount of weeks when we were pregnant the first time. Did that make sense? Anyway, when we had the miscarriage we were 10 weeks, 2 days. Today we are 10 weeks 4 days. A week and a half until we leave the first trimester. We have our next appointment on the 16th, and I’m quite excited. I think we’ve decided that we want to find out the sex of the baby (and maybe have a reveal party….stealing the idea from projectbaby)

I think I will start taking “belly shots” at 12 weeks and see what comes from that. I don’t really have a bump yet…just a slight “pouch” as my husband calls it. I’ve only gained 1lb so far, I hope the baby is getting enough nutrition. I have been extremely hungry the past 3 days, eating a lot more than I have been. So I’m assuming that’s a sign that baby is taking all the food that he/she wants/needs.


Just a question

To all you wonderful ladies who used stretch mark cream…what brand did you find worked the best? And when did you start using it? Did you wait for something to appear or did you start early?

*EDIT* Very sad that nobody has any suggestions.


I’ve been quite busy lately. Sorry for my lack of posts.

The pregnancy is going fantastic, my morning (all day) sickness went away. We’ve told all of our family, and most of our friends. Now we’re debating back and forth if we want to find out the sex.

Anyone have any suggestions?


Remodel

I just gave my blog a remodel. Decided I didn’t really like the old one. And as much as I would love to create my own theme, I’m just not that computer savvy.


This weekend

This weekend is going to be a busy one. We are going to my parents’ house to visit them and help move some things around, then I think we will stop in at my sister’s place. We haven’t told our families about being pregnant yet, so maybe we will tell my side this weekend. I’m nervous about telling them. Maybe we will wait. I just can’t decide. How long did you ladies (and gentlemen) wait to tell your families?

On Sunday, I want to clean up outside. Maybe rake the lawn, my husband wants to clean the bbq and the garage. I also want to bake some cookies. And then it’s Monday already.


Venting

I had my “first appointment” today after work. I got there, peed in a cup, the nurse said the test was positive (yeah thanks for that), and then I sat and waited and waited and waited. For an hour I waited, the nurse finally took me to a room, and my OB came in, said he was going to send me for an ultrasound (apparently they don’t have a machine there) and asked if I had any questions. He gave me a piece of paper and left. Seriously?! It took me longer to pee into the cup than it did for my “appointment”. My hubby said the OB probably wants to make sure there’s a heartbeat before he continues on with anything because of the m/c last time. The OB said it’s to get the size and date the pregnancy. I just hope everything’s healthy!

By the time I got out of the doctor’s office, the ultrasound place was closed. Why couldn’t the nurse have given me the stupid paper and ask if I had any questions…and then if I did THEN I would sit around and wait for the damn doctor. It was honestly the most pointless “appointment” ever! He also said that I should try to make an appointment for the next week or so and then make an appointment with his office a couple days later. I waited over 2 weeks to get this appointment with him and I only got it because there was a cancellation. I don’t always work in town, so I better be able to get an appointment for after work or I’ll be not impressed.

On a happier note, I haven’t been sick since Monday. So I don’t know if that was morning sickness or a horrible 24 hour flu. It didn’t feel like a flu, and I had no fever, so who knows. I’m pretty sure I’m 7 weeks today, so we’ll go with it, and hope that I don’t have any more sickness.

WHATTTTTTT?!!!?!?!?! OMG OMG OMG!!! I am soooo excited for you!!! CONGRATS!!!!! :) :) I have no advice on stopping “morning” sickness but wow my jaw just dropped!!!!

Thank you so much! I’ve heard that with the morning sickness it’s a good sign of not having another m/c so we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed.
