Great Day!!

Yesterday we had an ultrasound and followup appt. I haven't gained anything!!!!! I am very excited about that! I am hoping that I won't gain a bunch with this pregnancy and I think that David is hoping so too. He keeps making little comments about watching what I eat and I'm not sure if that is him just being protective and supporting me or if he is really concerned with me getting as big as I did with Keagen and staying big like I did. I don't want to get really big but I also know that, that is part of pregnancy too. I am really loking forward to being able to breast feed. We got to have another ultrasound too. I have thought that this baby might be a sleeper but after yesterday I'm not quite so sure anymore. It was really neat! When she first started the ultrasound the baby was laying on its stomach with its face burried (very cute!) but then she bounced him around a little bit (I am going to call it a him/he until proven otherwise) and he decided to wake up and boy did he wake up!! He started kicking and punching the air and then he did little kickoffs-you like when you put your feet up against the side of the pool and kick off? He was doing that!!! It was so amazing! I jept watching David to see his reaction and even though I know he is scared I did see him get excited and almost wanted to cry. It was just an amazing day! Oh! and I found a changing table for $50 brand new!! and it matches our crib! I almost bought one used for $30 so I think $50 new is pretty good!

10 1/2 weeks

Being pregnant again has been so different than I remember with Keagen. I have more sickness this time-not like throwing up sick but the whole if I don't eat I feel like I will throw up. Oh and my water intake!!! I have drank so much water since getting pregnant!!! I got an ultrasound two weeks ago and the baby moved a little bit but went back to sleep (I think this one is going to be a sleeper). I have my early screening this Friday-the test is for Down's Syndrome, and some of the other birth deffects. I'm not really worried about it, I am just excited to have another ultrasound. I am hoping that this time we get to hear the heartbeat, we got to see it last time but didn't get to hear it. David is really excited! He even has a picture of our little lima bean on his phones main screen. I haven't had the guts to take Keagen off of my phone yet-I don't want to forget him in the excitement of having this one. I am so ready to start feeling this little one move! It felt that at first the pregnancy was dragging but now it feels like it is flying because I just realized that a week and a half and I am at 12 weeks already!!! I need to start taking ictures but haven't had time and with everything with Luke our news has gotten somewhat lost in all the emotions and plans and trying to take care of Becca. I am okay with that but I am ready for people to know, even though I probably won't show until I am more like 6months. oh well it has fun so far =)

Is this really happening?

I wanted to create a blog so that I could write about pregnancy and not be bothered with people telling me what to do and to just get thoughts out. I am scared. My husband is scared. Is this really happening?!? The Friday before Labor Day we got the results of my latest blood work and the Doctor said that my numbers were slightly elevated. I wasn't even late yet!!!! So David and I went to the store and bought two pregnancy tests and I did one Sun morning and Mon morning. The one on Sunday was barely visible and the one on Monday was a little more than Sunday's. I knew that I had to do another blood test and pregnancy test at the doctors on Tuesday so I tried not to worry too much. My number came back Wednesday and they went from 17 to 263 in six days! That is good news for us! My Ob-Gyn wanted me to get an U/S and so we went to Cruces but it was too early to see anything. I was measuring at 5 weeks 4 days which was acurate according to my calculations. So now I am scheduled for another U/S on the 7th and we will finally find out if it is a viable pregnancy or not. Then I will have a real doctor's appt. on the 9th. I pray that it is real and viable and that there is a little person growing inside of me but I know that God is in control if that is not the case. I am excited also and can't believe that I am 7 weeks pregnant!!! I don't want people telling me this time that they are more excited than I am cause it isn't true! The morning sickness isn't unbearable but I am tired of feeling like I either have to eat right away or throw up or feeling like I will throw up if I even think about eating another bite! oh and I am tired all the time. I feel like a whimp but David has been amazing!!!!! I couldn't have asked for a better husband!
