*POP* boing!


Just now...I was laying on the bed talking to Todd about his day. I was telling him how all day today I haven't been able to keep my underwear in place...they keep rolling down in the front (they are low cut)and so I reach down to pull my sweats down a bit to show him and his eyes pop out of his head. Then my hand found it. The bump is there don't have to feel around for it.

I am overweight (understatement of the year...*sigh*) and I knew it would take awhile before I would start to show. Well, at least I thought that is how it would be.

Even from just the other day, there is a big difference. You had to actually sorta push on my abdomen to feel it, now, it is right there. BOOM. And thus explains the underwear problem lol.

That SO made my day...

Week 11

It is funny, but it just hit me that I am almost 4 months pregnant. Holy.Shit.

I am having tons of trouble sleeping at night. I just lay there awake, no matter how tired I am. It sucks. So, then I sleep all damned day the next day, which is way too unproductive for me. If I don't sleep the next day, I just feel like shit all day. Bah.

Other than that though, things are good. I actually feel better tonight than I have in a long time. I don't feel so wiped out. I even made dinner! Ok ok, so it was Hamburger Helper, whatever. I got off my ass and did something!! Yay for me. :O)

I am hoping that I can start sleeping at night and being productive during the day..cause this gets old.

I can feel the bump when I lay down and feel around in my gut. It is SO cool. I am not showing yet or anything, and I really thought I had gained some weight because most of my pants are fitting me differently as of late. So imagine my surprise when I got on the scale to see that I have not gained a damned thing!!

That is big news for me, seeing as I have to keep my TOTAL weight gain to about 15-20 pounds for the entire pregnancy. I have been eating pretty good. I bought these 7 grain crackers that I really thought were going to taste like shit. But when I had two today, I was pleasantly surprised. They were very..graham cracker-like, sweet. I really enjoyed them. And I need to be eating more grains. So I figure between that and the Kashi cereal I have, I should have it covered! I have been having a hard time with the veggies though..*gags*

I need to somehow up the veggie intake.

Anyway, that is all for now. I am tired..time for bed, and hopefully..sleep!!

Week 10

Week 10 has been interesting. I have felt worse this week than any other so far. I have been getting a lot of headaches, and one of them even progressed into a migraine. That sucked. I have meds for them, but cannot take them while pregnant. So I just had to ride it out. It took almost 24 hours! Oy.

My face is breaking out like mad, the mood swings are still in full force and I still sleep a lot, which means I am not eating as I should, nor am I getting enough water. I have been trying to stay up more the last two days. But then when I DO sleep, the house could be destroyed with a wrecking ball and I would not know it. And the dreams! Omg the weirdness that goes on in my sleep. Whoooooboy!

Other than that, its good. When I lay down, I can feel the bump a few inches below my belly button. It makes me happy. :O)

So, I said I was not going to bother wondering about the sex of the baby. Yeahright.
I DO wonder. Every day. I want to know so bad. Hee. Still have a long way to go before we know that.

Time seems to be going so s l o w !!

Week Nine

Today was our 3rd ultrasound. The Doc said everything looked great! And then he released me so that I can see a regular OB/GYN! I am so stoked.

The babys heartbeat today was 178 bpm. That is quite a jump, and it has everyone thinking that this baby is indeed a girl. More on that later....

We got to see it moving around in there. It was quite active. I was amazed. I cannot believe I have this life growing inside of me. Here is the latest ultrasound. I know it still looks like just a blob, but it is MY blob. LOL

Ok, so, I really wanted a boy. But really, I don't care as long as he or she is healthy. I did google the heartbeat thing, and it is different for everyone. Some people had girls when the heartbeat was high and some had boys. I am, as of this minute not going to concern myself with what it is anymore. I just want a healthy baby. We will find out in due time.

Today has been fun. Not.

I didn't fall asleep last night until after 1 a.m. I woke up around 5:30 when Todd got up to shower for work. I had trouble getting back to sleep, even though I was as tired as tired can be. Finally, somewhere around 7:30, I fell asleep. When I woke up at 11:30, Todd was standing over me. He had come home to get ready for a job interview that he had this afternoon. I went to get out of bed, and when I stood up, my stomach heaved (thank GOD it was empty) and the room started to spin. I do not think I have ever experience dizziness like this. Me no likey at all!!! It was nuts.

I spent the rest of the day in bed, because I could not even sit up with out the room spinning and my stomach doing acrobatics. I napped a bit here and there. All I ate today was a fruit smoothie that I managed to get up and make, and a frozen strawberry fruit popsicle...oh and a package of Ritz peanut butter crackers. I cannot believe how crappy I have felt all day. Wow.

I finally managed to heat up my leftovers from dinner last night, some bbq ribs, broccoli and cheese pasta and peas. Mmmm. I didn't feel like eating but knew I had to eat something. As soon as that was all heated up though, I chowed down.

And now, I cannot stop yawning. I am freaking tired as all hell again. Must.stay.awake. I really want to sleep like a normal person tonight lol.

I am very aware of this baby. I am barely 9 weeks along, but I am aware of it in there. I can feel it. It feels like it does when my bladder starts to fill up. I can feel it, in there. I am not sure how to say it, how to describe it, without sounding like an idiot. LOL.

I was just thinking the other day about how I haven't really felt pregnant, except for being tired. I HAD to open my mouth eh? Haha. Ah..I am not complaining really. It took a long time to get here, so I will take whatever comes.
