Apparently LiveWriter does not want me to preview my posts before i publish them; both times i’ve done this it’s resulted in a lost post. So, I’m going to attempt this post, again, and hope that we make it into publishing.
I suppose I have kind of been ignoring my blog; not because I don’t like it anymore, but because I’m not doing anything and not doing anything leaves me with nothing to write. I’m not working out, and I do have a reason for that, and I’ll tell you why (even though it’s not even a really good reason).
WE ARE PREGNANT.. and by WE I mean ME.. I can’t decide if it annoys me when I say “we are pregnant” because technically, i’m the only one getting fatter in this equation, but it’s Chris’ kid, and he’s suffering (bc if Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy)EDITED TO ADD: I AM HAPPY WE ARE PREGNANT, BUT IT’S NOT ALL FUN AND GAMES. and there is nothing happy about getting fat in the summer in Florida. can I get an amen? Thank goodness I’m not 9 months, right? Whew. I’d never leave the comfort of my air-conditioned house.
SO, yeah. I’m pregnant, and that has made me the laziest slug in the entire world. I think I’ve gone to the gym approximately ONCE since I found out on April 25th. …..like i said, laziest slug IN THE WORLD.
We found out at about 4 weeks on the dot; I wasn’t even late yet, but I was having a major bitch fit and decided I was either pregnant or about to start so I took a test and holy crap it was positive. I chugged some water and took another test, and the lines were faint, but they were there. DON’T WORRY, I HAVE NO INTENTION OF POSTING MY PEE STICKS. Plus they are on my iPhone that died..
Chris was out of town so I facetimed him and showed him the test, and he said, “What does that mean?”
We were both pretty surprised – We were trying, so it wasn’t THAT big of a surprise, but man, I really expected it to take longer. AND let me just say, that I know we are SO BLESSED to have it happen quickly – I know there are many couples who struggle.
I truly thought there was NO WAY it would happen right away because my cycles have been out of control since I quit taking birth control in November. That was TMI, right? Sorry. I’ll try to avoid to much TMI from now on.
Chris made me buy a digital test because he didn’t trust those lines.. so i went to wal-mart at 11pm to buy a digital and took it the next morning.. yep, still pregnant.
We were lucky to be able to have our first appointment when I was just 6 weeks; I know many places wait until 10-12 weeks.. that is just torture! The Dr. did an ultrasound, and while we couldn’t see a baby, we could see the sac, so that was kind of neat.
Our second appointment was on June 3rd, and at that time I was 9wks/2days; For whatever reason my OB isn’t contracted with my insurance to do regular ultrasounds, so we had to go somewhere else to get a “Dating” ultrasound done. My OB has a little hand held u/s machine so he uses that to show us the baby, then I guess for regular/more detailed scans we will have to go somewhere else.. that’s annoying, but i guess it’s okay since it’s helping my deductible to get met. (insurance talk, blech).
I’m currently 10wk/6days, and my estimated due date is January 5th, 2014 !! Crazy crazy crazy!
morning all day sickness from about 6.5 weeks to 9 weeks; the last 2 weeks have been significantly better. The week after we found out I ate pickles like it was my job. SO weird. I like pickles, but I’ve never wanted to eat pickles so bad in my life. Then I went through a ginger snap cookie & chicken nugget phase. I’m finally able to eat fruits & veggies again. It’s a miracle I didn’t gain more than 4lbs in the first few weeks.
don’t judge my crocs; i wear them around the house. /// regular jeans (which i had unbuttoned all day) & a maternity shirt
I think the hardest thing has been the changes in my body so far; I definitely notice I’m getting thicker, and that is hard. Pretty much none of my clothes are comfortable. Hallelujah for scrubs! I have a few pairs of maternity pants, and a few shirts, but I’m trying hard not to wear those yet. I know it’s silly, but whatever.
I’ve done pretty good at avoiding the scale. I’ve gained between 3-4lbs depending on the day; from what I’ve read, 5lbs is normal for the first trimester; so I’m okay with that.
I suppose this is as good of time as any to be pregnant; My sister is 16ish weeks, and one of my good friends is 13ish weeks, so we can all commiserate & celebrate together. Both of them found out what they are having so now I’m SUPER anxious to find out what we are having… It’s going to be a long 8 weeks.
So. I think that’s about it. that’s what’s going on around here. I’m just busy growing a little baby.
Enough about me, what about you. What’s new?
