Dr Appts

I had a DR appointment today, and was able to hear my little Junebug's heartbeat again; 155bpm :)  nice and strong!  I also set the appointment to find out the gender; January 16th at 4pm, Kyle's 33rd birthday!!  What a nice birthday present :) 

Today I also met the the pediatrician to do a prenatal visit.  We just went over the way the office functions, and how things will work once the baby is born; like when he will come to the hospital to check on the baby and when the baby needs to come into the office.  I think I'll be very happy with him!

I also got a travel system today from a friend today that she used with her son.  It's the Eddie Bauer Stonewood Travel System.I love it!  It's super cute, gender generic, and fit the budget :)  I love how we things are starting to come today and we are gathering items!!

Bump-Date: Week 15

Baby Size: 4"; Apple
Baby Weight: 2.5oz

Week 15 just came to a close and tomorrow I have a DR appointment.  At this appointment I will be able to schedule my ultrasound appointment to find out if its a boy or girl!  Super excited!  Hopefully within the next couple of weeks we can find out!!  I am excited that we get to hear the heartbeat tomorrow though :)  I haven't heard it in a month and it feels like a lifetime.

This week was pretty easy in the baby department, but I do have a head cold/sinus issues.  My head feels like it wants to explode, I keep sneezing, my eyes are itchy, and I feel like crap!  Hopefully the dr can help me out tomorrow.

Christmas was a success this week!  Got all presents wrapped and sent out early this year.  My parents do Christmas on Christmas day, and I don't think my 3 year old niece Rachael has ever seen so many presents!  She spent the night with me on the 23rd and we went over to my parents and she found 1 present under the tree with her name, and she thought that was all she had.  We went into my old bedroom and the bed was COVERED with presents!  The little girl had a stack of presents higher than she is tall!  She was soooo happy when she opened them all :)

This week I also got my crib and changing table in.  The crib matches everything perfectly, but the changing table is a little dark. I really like the changing table, but I'm going to keep my eyes open in case I find one that matches a little better.

Well my eyes are starting to hurt from all the...whatever this is...and I shall close with a picture...

This week went better than last; no feeling like I was going to pass out! I have been feeling weak though, I will be sure to mention that to the dr next week.  I ordered a crib last week and got it today :) matches everything perfectly. I also got a changing table in today, but haven't opened the box yet.
I hope everyone have a very Merry Christmas!!!

Bump-Date: Week 13

Baby Size: 3"; Medium Shrimp
Baby Weight: 0.5oz
This week I found myself feeling a little weak most of the day.  I went to the mall one day, walked from JCPenny to Motherhood and when I left I almost passed out.  I got hot, sweaty, dizzy, and started seeing black while I was walking.  So I grabbed a bottle of water and sat down for about 10-15 minutes before I felt like I could walk again without getting that feeling.  I thought that maybe I needed to eat something, so I went to Fazolis and grabbed some lunch and called my DRs nurse. I had to leave a message, and they didn't get back to me for almost 3 hours!  That kind of irritated me, but when I talked with my sister about it, she said that they call back right away when it's something bad, so since they weren't calling back I guess that means they weren't too worried.  The nurse said that I need to eat every couple of hours so that my blood sugar doesn't get low along with my blood pressure dropping.  So I've been eating every few (not two) hours and have really noticed I feel better.  I don't feel as weak and the tiredness isn't as bad.  Hopefully next week I can report no weakness or passing out feeling!

Here's a new picture for you!  Say goodbye first trimester!

Bump-Date: Week 12

Baby Size: 2"; Lime
Baby Weight: 0.5oz
Week 12 has followed suit, and was relatively easy going! I have noticed the tired spells are changing up a bit; previously I got tired around 9-10am and again around 4-4:30pm. Now I get tired around 4 to the point I could fall asleep walking! Not sure why the pattern changed but I noticed it this week. Also I pee ALL THE TIME!! I get up at least 3-4 times a night...I don't even get a drink when I'm up, so I don't encourage the cycle, doesn't matter I still pee!! So bad a gal at work had me keep a tally; 5 times from 9am to noon! 5 times in 3 hours...seriously?!? Ugh! Plus it will only get worse as the baby grows :( oh well I can deal ;) well I'm headed to bed, it's past my bedtime. Goodnight!

I had a doctors appointment at 11:00 this morning, and after a bit of searching, he was able to find it!  The heart rate was 168bpm; so nice and strong!  It was the most amazing sound in the world.  I went a few weeks back with Emily when she got to hear hers for the first time, but it sounded so much different when it was mine.  That's my baby, in my belly, with it's own heartbeat.   Just amazing...

Bump-Date: Week 11

Baby Size: 1.5"; Fig
Baby Weight: <0.5oz
Week 11 was relatively easy and the baby was the size of a lime!  I started noticing some pulling from my right hip down to my pelvic bone, but it's just everything stretching and making room for baby!  I am still tired and having issues with my blood pressure in church, but short of that, I haven't really had any bad symptoms!  Sorry there isn't much to talk about, it was a rather uneventful week :) which isn't a bad thing!

 Sorry the panties are showing! haha!
