11/05/2013 U/S showed a nice gestational sac and EDD is being pinned as Jul 6 right now :)
10/20/2013 Had a nice, dark BFP. It took away any doubts I have had! I am so excited and cannot wait until my first OB/GYN appt!!!
10/18/2013 After 5 months of TTC I finally got a very faint BFP!
7/2013 My little baby I waited for is now 4 years old! She is boisterous and beautiful. I am so blessed. Hubby and I are TTC baby number 2! After having a D&C for Mirena removal I am very anxious. My doctor is working with us and helping us navigate the TTC procedure. I cannot wait to add to my little family!
This is my second pregnancy, but unfortunately I lost my first when I was two months along. Of course I would like a girl, but my fiance wants a boy. I know I will be in love either way!!
Update!!!! I GOT MARRIED SATURDAY (Sept 27) IN LAS VEGAS!!!! WOOHOO!!! I go to the doc Oct 8th and he will schedule the ultrasound then. I can't wait!!! :D
Well, tomorrow (10/21/08) is the big day!! I finally get to find out if it is a boy or a girl!!! I have had 2 dreams that its going to be a girl. We will see how accurate that really is!
10/21/08 UPDATE!!! - I went for my ultrasound and guess what?! IT IS A GIRL!!! HOORAY!!! My ultrasound technician says that when the mothers have a dream they are correct on the gender 80% of the time.
She was being shy but I told her she needed to open up and show her goodies so her Mamaw would know if she was a girl or a boy and BAM!
Also, the tech says she is about 1 lb. 10 oz. already! They changed my due date to Feb 8th. I was so disappointed, but I think she will come on the 6th anyways.
11/05/08 - I will be 7 months Saturday so here is the 7 month belly photo! (Close enough!) Haha I couldn't find the shirt I used last time so I threw on my bathing suit top with a pair of shorts, and looking at it now I look so silly!
12/04/08 Well....today is my hubby's b-day but he is out of town. He is with friends, so I hope he is having fun (they were working during the day painting a cabin, but night time...). So I went to the Dr today and he is pleased. I haven't gained any weight (I actually lost 2 lbs) since last time. That brings me to a grand total of 14 lbs for the entire pregnancy! I went to the gym at my apts and all they had was a weight machine. My dr says no no so I can only walk around the complex. I was lookin for a treadmill. I am packing up and hoping to move next sunday (the 14th). My baby shower is going to be on the 20th, so it looks like this month is going to go quickly. Also, I am starting my 2 week visits now so I will go back right before christmas, and at the beginning of January. Then I suppose I will start my weekly visits....unless he decides to have me come for 3, 2 week visits (but that would put me at 37 weeks and he said 36). It's all his call. He says once she is born we will talk a little more about birth control. I am SO EXCITED!!!!!
12/07/08 According to the BG ticker, I am now 8 months. I took these yesterday so they will officially count as my 8 month photo. YAY!I have been shy about showing the belly without a shirt, but I am goin to anyways.
12/18/08 Ok, so today was a good doctors appointment even though I have been sick nearlythe last 2 weeks. My doctor has decided that he would like me to deliver around 38 weeks instead of the full 40. He agreed with me when I said she was getting big, so I guess that is why. I am so excited! Nothing is set in stone as far as a date (he did mention Jan 25), but maybe at my next appointment on the 2nd? We'll have to see! *e-jumping for joy, since I can't IRL*
12/21/08 The baby shower was last night and I am sitting surrounded by presents as I write this! It was HUGE! So many people came and we got so many gifts. The Lord blessed us with such great family and friends! It was a very tiring and overwhelming experience but I completely enjoyed it and only hope that other ladies can be as blessed as I was!
01/16/09 Things with the pregnancy have been uneventful. I started seeing my doctor once a week starting 01/02/09 and I have been having contractions since 12/23/08. Anywho, I went to the doctor today and he checked me. I am not dilated at all, even with all my contractions and back labor. UGH! He says my cervix is very soft and told me to come in at 9 am next friday. If there is any sign of progress he will be sending me off to the hospital!! I am so excited, and I am so glad that he is not making me wait the whole 40 weeks!!! I guess I will be waiting anxiously to find out what is going to happen! I told DH that I am going to walk every day to help her come down some! YAY!!!!!
2:25 p.m. I went to thr dr this am, and I was 2 cm dilated! My bp was 120/90, so he decided to send me to the hospital to be induced! I was admitted at 10:20 am and they started the iv. I got up to go potty and the nurse discovered my pitocin was not connected to the I.V.! They started it at 1 p.m. and it is now 2:10. My contractions are 2-4 minutes apartand I am so uncomfy. Since I am on pitocin they want me to stay in bed so they can monitor my contractions really closely. It is difficult to stay still.
12:19 am My water broke! YAY!
5:00 am There is a lady down the hall having her baby,,,,she doesn't sound too pleased. I am beginning to get nervous, and I am 8 cm
6:00 am Dr. L showed up and says my cervix is thin and I can push through it....TIME TO PUSH!!!
7:28 am Baby Holli is here!!! She's perfect! I thought I would say something profound when she was born, but nope....all I could say was "My Baby!"
Recovery room was pretty quick, and I felt great after having her. It took me 3-5 weeks total to feel completely normal again. After the breastfeeding I only have an extra 5 pounds of "baby weight"! She's PERFECT and she is so much fun each day. She is now 6 weeks old. I didn't get to finish my labor postings until now, because being a mom is SO busy! She is starting to smile and there are telltale signs of a laugh starting to show. There is more and more personality appearing each day. I LOVE HER!!!
3/29/09 We took family photos. Holli is starting to smile and they got a great picture.
