12 weeks today and morning sickness is really starting to subside. I feel a little "pukey" (not that that's a word lol) once in a while, but no more nausea, which is fantastic! Haven't taken any medication in 3 days
I weighed myself today, now that I can keep food down. I have gained 3lbs. I was at 171 and am now at 174. I was at 171 before pregnancy, Got to 176, lost weight from throwing up which was why I was 171. So it's nice that I am gaining a little. I mean, I'm not happy about gaining LOL but I know I have to for the baby. Really PRAYING I only gain 20lbs, no more.... big FX. I know it's possible as my close friend only gained 12lbs for both her pregnancies. I guess we shall see months from now how that goes for me.
HUGE slacker here! Hahaha. I guess not much to report on. Today I am 15 weeks, well tomorrow according to the OBGYN but I will stick with my calculations lol, even though it's just a day, I will be stubborn and say Aug 16 will be the day haha. I've still been feeling some "morning sickness" on and off throughout my days. Thankfully I still have some Zofran saved up to last me a couple weeks.
There have been 2 times where I am pretty sure I have felt our lil one in there. It hasn't been a movement big enough to make me say "Oh yea that was the baby FOR SURE" but I'm about 85% sure it was the baby and not gas. I cannot wait to feel it more often and KNOW it's him/her.
We find out in 25 days boy or girl! I cannot wait. I'm so anxious. Just about all of us reefer to the baby as him, not too sure what we're all going to do if he is indeed a she!! Anyhow I couldn't find the black shirt I have been taking weekly photos in so I took one tonight with my shirt pulled up. Hopefully tomorrow I can take one with the black shirt to add to my weekly timeline. Ohhhh and I'm starting to get some major stretch marks. I thought I would be fine with them, they're supposed to be lovely, a good thing, but I'm having a hard time dealing. I try to remember my Bio Oil and Palmers, but I'm really bad at keeping up with it. You'd think with all my recent worry about these tiger stripes I would remember more, but I still don't

Not going to be a very eventful entry. Just dropping in to touch base
I'm still super tired. Who ever said you get a burst of energy in the second trimester sure did tell a fib! I thought I was getting that burst right around 13 weeks, but it only lasted a couple days! I don't really sleep that well at night, so I'm sure that has something to do with all this nap taking I feel like doing!!! Still praying though that the burst hits soon.
I've still been getting sick. Not as terrible as the beginning, but still throwing up. Another lucky thing I'm being blessed with. Not too many people talk about having "morning sickness" all pregnancy, but I guess it's actually common! Surprising if you ask me. If it's not the vomiting it's a headache or migraine so bad I feel like I could be sick! I really hate all this, but I know it's a blessing and in the end it will all be worth it. So I stick it out
PS.... only 14 more days till our anatomy scan!!! I'm trying to figure out how I can link the "banner" to my signature... but for now, those who want, go play our game!!! Take a guess at the gender, weight, and date/time of birth!!! http://www.expectnet.com/games/BabyMcLeod1
So I finally had a baby dream involving gender! The night before last I had a dream, don't know if it counts because the baby was more of a toddler, well 2 or 3 year old. It was a boy! He was walking around the living room and he looks at me and DH, pulls his diaper down, arches his back and starts peeing. The thing is, DH and I had no time to be mad because we were busting out laughing, because somehow his pee was hitting the ceiling hahaha!!
Then last night I had like 4 more dreams about the baby! 2 of them the baby was a boy, then the other 2 the baby was a girl! Man oh man, I was so excited to have a gender dream because many people say the mother to be dreaming of baby gender is usually what she will be having. Well, I guess it's not going to work out for me, unless the very first dream "counts" lol.
In the one dream I was so upset because every time my DH would pick up our little girl he wouldn't support the neck! I kept telling him over and over and every time he would look at me and say "I know! I got it" but he indeed did NOT have it.
The other girl dream I remember the baby had came really really early, it was completely fine, healthy as all get out, but because it was so early we were no where ready for it. We had no diapers, and all I could remember was having to use the 6 cloth diapers we have here and washing them over and over. I'm not sure why we didn't get any from the hospital, or go to the store to get some lol, probably because it was a dream, and dreams don't always make sense. In this dream I was also having a hard time with breastfeeding because no one had helped me at the hospital, and my baby had not eaten in 3 days! But, she was completely fine with it lol.
Don't know what all it means, and I really don't care if there is a meaning lol, I just love having dreams about the baby
Baby dreams are fun and sometimes they do end up coming true. One night DH and I both had a dream about our baby. Mine made me mad because it was just after having him and the nurses were all passing him around the room and not supporting his neck (like yours). Also they wouldn't let me see him or hold him. DH's was about the baby's head splitting my stomach open and his head popping out. Well guess what we ended up having an emergency C-Section, and I didn't get to hold the baby because even though he was a week overdue he wasn't breathing right so all the nurses passed him around to get him to the back of the room to be worked on, and then he was taken straight to the NICU for 24hrs.
hahah oopps!!! lol Seriously I wonder how other pregnant women do, because I even started a little book at home, its like a week by week journal and I always forget to fill it out. Just slips my mind! And it sits right by the couch where I sit every day hahaha
20 weeks and 6 days! I have no idea where the time has gone! Just crazy! I do know that I am still getting sick and I really am not liking it! It's crazy that so many women have this pass after the first trimester, but I have it lingering around at half way through! I feel terrible complaining, because I'm so happy and blessed to be pregnant, but I really do not like it this far. It seems the days will get better, then bam, like a ton of bricks to the face I start getting sick again. I guess it could be worse, but UGH it really hasn't been a walk in the park lol. Yesterday was pretty rough. I felt fine, no nausea, I just couldn't keep anything down. Not even liquids. I probably was in the restroom 8 or 9 times by noon So once I got home from work I just slept most the day. I figured I was so hungry, but couldn't really eat that I mine as well sleep it away. I'm praying today is a better day! I took some Zofran and although it has given me major constipation in the past, I think I want a decent morning at work where I don't have to leave my co worker every 30 minutes or so!
I'm back for a second time today because I have to note that I think the baby had hiccups!!! It was a crazy feeling! I loved it! At first I thought it was some hardcore kicking, then I realized it was to constant and in somewhat of a rhythm. I'm not 100% sure it was hiccups because it only lasted a little less then a minute, but kicks usually come and go as flutters so I would say I'm probably right with this assumption lol.
