Feb. 9, 2010

We had another Dr. appt. today. Things are going well. I have only gained 2 lbs so far but then was told to expect to start gaining from here on out. =( (Mixed emotions on this) I was about 10 lbs more than I wanted to be to start with so doesn't that even out somehow? In my mind it does I think the baby could just absorb those lbs I don't want and didn't need so I don't have to gain quite as much. Oh well! The heartbeat was good and strong, averaging about 150 beats a minute. I asked the Dr. guess on boy or girl and she wouldn't say. So if you want to give me your guess they are welcome. We will know for sure hopefully in a little less than a month either way if this little one will cooperate. We are at week 16!

Just an update it's up to 11 lbs now! We still have several more weeks to go! Still waiting for the belly to pop out! We are week 21!
Sorry these are out of date and kind of random thoughts!

Grandma is excited for grand baby #3!

Jan 30, 2010

I overheard my mom talking to one of her friends today and I could hear the excitement in her voice as she was telling her friend about me and her future grand baby! I have enjoyed asking my mom all kinds of questions about when she was pregnant with me. She even was here when I had my last ultrasound and was really excited to see the really active baby inside me. She told me when was pregnant with me it was a surprise you didn't know if you were having a boy or girl until the baby arrived. Times have changed!

Pregnancy Sucks!

Feb. 12, 2010

One of my friends gave me a book with this title and I am finding it quite funny. It's amazing what information family and friends tend not to mention in all the glorious woo's of pregnancy. I'm not saying I agree it just kind of funny to really get a true sense of what is coming or will happen. Mind you I will not read any further than I am in fear of knowing what is to come. I will only read it after I have passed that point. I just want to know why the secrets ladies??? I have been told you have to go to the bathroom more often but no one tells you just how often. And that you will be running to the bathroom on average 3 to 4 times in the middle of the night. And kids at school want to know why I'm so cranky! Well I don't sleep except for one 1/2 to 2 hour at a time. But every time I see my baby or hear it's heartbeat I remind myself that it all very worth it! So maybe that is the answer after the baby comes you forget all the stuff that might have driving you crazy at the time. Enjoy the journey is what wise friends have said and I remind myself of that as well. I have waited a long time to experience all that I am now experiencing and wouldn't trade it for anything!

Movement! I LOVE IT!!!

My sweet baby girl is getting stronger and stronger as the days go by. I am so enjoying all the wiggles I can feel inside. I know there will come a day not too far away that it won't be as fun but I love feeling her move. I felt the little flutters in the beginning and would sometime just lay in bed and laugh. Ralph was curious to what was so funny? It kind of tickles a bit and it just makes me happy a laugh out loud happy! And it's kind of a time where you can only feel it and know what is happening. She is getting so strong that Ralph felt her move the other day. We continue to wiggle along!!!

Pregnancy pact!

Feb. 25, 2010

So recently on Lifetime they had a show about the teenagers who all agree to get pregnant at the same time. Crazy I know. It's odd though many (5) of my friends from Texas are all pregnant too. It's like we made a pact but didn't know it. We are all within weeks of each other. Funny how things work out sometimes!
