How Baby D is growing. . .


Thursday, August 22, 2013


So last night, I started feeling a bit queasy while reading to DD before bed. I still feel like there is a lump in my throat (kinda like when you feel you're going to be sick). I don't know if it's mental or nervousness or actually there. I also feel really heavy in my uterus area and had lots of twinges last night. With DD I felt like AF was going to show up at any minute, but not this time. I'm hoping for that BFP now more than ever!

Today's symptom list is: fatigue (probably from having open house until 830 last night), scratchy throat, shooting pain that comes and goes in the bbs, always hungry, stomach felt weird this morning (not sick, just weird), and round ligament pain. I haven't had RL pain since I was pregnant with DD so it was a bit weird. I had a bit of cramping 10-11 dpiui, but nothing major. I'm hopeful that we'll get some good news this weekend even though my "symptoms" are nothing like what they were for DD.

I'm going crazy here :) I have days where I'm sure this has worked and then days where I'm scrambling mentally to think of where we will get more money to do this again. Today's random symptoms are--bb pain, sharp/stabbing pains in the lady parts (almost like it's my cervix). I'm just patiently waiting until Saturday. . . ok, maybe patiently is the wrong word. I need to stop google-ing though!

9dpiui (#2)

Well today is 9dpiui and I've been really crampy and bloaty. Yesterday I felt sharp pokes and twinges in my abdomen so I'm hoping that was implantation. I also got a fortune cookie that said 'you will receive happy news this week.' I sure hope so. I feel like all our money woes are my fault for having to go through the IF treatment. I honestly don't know what we'll do if this doesn't go as planned... Back to happy thoughts! This will work and DD will be a big sister soon!

7 dpiui (trying for kiddo #2)

Nothing lately but exhaustion, but that's likely due to the progesterone that I've been taking for 4 days. I've also had sore bb's and feel like they look different, weird, I know. I've completely stopped drinking caffeine and alcohol for a month now and I'm hoping it pays off. I'm also so busy at work that I don't have time to think about much lately! I hope that this works because it's our one shot for a while to have #2. DD would be such an amazing sister, I just really want this to work. Other random "symptoms"-ovary twinges (6dpiui), really dark urine despite only drinking water, waking in night to go pee, going to bed early

21 weeks

Well, today is the 21 week mark. Everything seems to be going great, doc said everything looked good, and drew blood for the quad-screen test. I'm going to call on Monday to see what the results are (guessing by my age and history it should come out negative--knock on wood).

One month until school starts (for teachers anyways), and I'm ready and not ready at the same time. I want to get it started because the sooner it starts the sooner it's November and I get to meet our little miracle. Other than that, we are pretty boring here, just preparing for baby. The room is painted and finished and I will try to get pics up as soon as possible.

19 weeks

Technically speaking, my pregnancy is halfway over. Last night I was reminiscing about the day we found out I was pregnant and was telling the baby how special s/he is, and it made me start crying (but right now, everything does). I can't believe how blessed we are to have such a great miracle happen and I feel so honored to become a mom.

Last night we were at a tribute band-esque concert, and the baby starting kicking along to the beat, so cool. I can't wait until Brian can feel it, that will be amazing. No big new on our front though, routine dr's appointment Wednesday, and lots of nothing for me--it's times like this I LOVE being a teacher!

Now onto the World Cup, lets go USA!

18 weeks

So as you can see we got to see the baby this week! Friday was the ultrasound and the baby is measuring a week ahead of schedule! We did NOT find out the sex and it really isn't bothering us at all! It's bothering my sister-in-law though who thought that I would have someone put the sex in an envelope and then just she'll know--yeah right.

Getting ready to have both our families over for Father's day, talk to you later!

Been a while!

Well it's been a few weeks since I updated, so here goes!

School's done, and last week we were in Jamaica for what I learned is called a babymoon. We enjoyed every second and didn't want to come home. On our way down there, while sitting on the plane, I'm pretty sure I felt the baby move. It hasn't been consistent or anything, but I'm 99% positive that's what I felt.

Saturday marks the 18 week mark and Friday we have our big ultrasound. I'm sooooo nervous, but at the same time very excited to see baby D and how he/she has grown! I'll try to post more pictures, too, since I think I have it figured out.

Father's day is Sunday and both the fam's are coming over for a BBQ. It's nice to have everyone over, but also a huge pain in the a$$. I've been to the grocery store 4 times so far this week and am putting my foot down and not going anymore, lets see how that works. Other than father's day, we have a busy weekend: wedding/CWS/party/CWS after party to do on Saturday. Obviously not going to make it to all of the places that we were invited, but we're going to try. The wedding will probably go to the wayside, it's 2ish hours away.

Going to finish packing our lunch, we're going to the zoo before the 'massive' storms come in this afternoon!

14 weeks down, 26 to go :)

Well, I'm 14 weeks and 2 days along this journey and feel AWESOME!!! I haven't been nauseous in over a week (unless I don't eat, nice, huh). I can't wait to feel Baby D move, but that's a few weeks off. My sister-in-law says that I have a baby bump now, I just think I look fat, but hey, I'll pass it off as the baby :) Started making lists upon lists, lists of furniture to buy, lists of clothes we'll need for the baby, and oh goodness, it was a panic attack waiting to happen.

Anyways, all is well here, my next appointment isn't until June 2, which seems like forever. We probably won't even have an ultrasound until the big anatomy scan at 20 weeks, so I sill have 6 weeks for that. I just want a healthy baby!
