Well I don't think I'm going to be "hiding" my pregnancy much longer this baby just wants to show off to the world lol. I can still suck it in at times but it's pretty uncomfortable so I'm just gonna let it hang out for the most part lol. It's soo weird to watch my stomach get bigger as I step on the scale and lose another pound. 5 now! The doctor wasn't too happy about that, but hopefully it gets to where I want to eat more soon. So yeah anyway this time I saw a different midwife and she is pregnant too how cool is that! She was really nice and we talked about the cyst and how its got to be that causing the pain and then she got out her doppler to find the HB. Well that took forever! I was getting so nervous she kept saying she thought she was getting little blips of it but couldn't pin it down. Finally way over on the right she found it! It was soo fast much faster than at the US she said it was in the 170's but she didnt count exactly. Im just so happy that everything is okay still. And she said it really makes sense that i would be having more pain if the baby is hanging out on the same side as the cyst. The only problem that came up was when I mentioned that my hair seems to be falling out more than before and I thought it was supposed to be the other way around. She said it could be fine but it could also be a problem so she sent me to get blood drawn to check my thyroid. Other than that though, everything was great. Since their US is at the perinatal office it costs a specialist co-pay to get one so she said unless it hurts more, we will just wait until the 24th which is my first trimester screening. But now that's in 2 weeks which is usually how long it takes for me to start getting freaked out so it should work out great.

Oh and I tried to go grocery shopping today for the first time since I found out I was pregnant, what a nightmare Im surprised I didnt puke!

I am so glad she was able to find the heartbeat!!! Sounds like a girl to me! Def glad you had a good appt and 2 weeks is perfect timing for your next u/s - just as you begin to get nervous you'll get reassurance!!

So Im really sick today. I dont know if it's a really bad day for M/S or if Im actually sick from something food or virus? I woke up at like 6 dizzy and feeling pukey and poopy I called off work for the morning to see if I would feel better, went back to sleep woke up dizzyness was gone stomach not feeling great slept off and on till 1 was feeling better ate a rice crispie treat and had some v8 juice. Feeling okay not great had some rice crispies and milk about 4 got queasy again that went away around 5:30 and I had some more v8. 6:45 and I threw up the juice explosively and still feeling queasy. I just hope the baby is okay. Im not dehydrated and I don't have a fever. I dont know if it warrants a call to the answering service as it's not really an emergency and it's the weekend so my only option would be the ER. I guess if it's still bad tomorrow I will go in though? I dont know. Im supposed to work at a craft show tomorrow too. Gosh I just need to feel better and know the baby is okay. But I dont want to spend $100 for it to be nothing.

The good thing is is baby is a leech. If this goes on for a day or two and you can't keep anything down, I wouldn't be too concerned. The baby is going to get what he/she needs even if you aren't and are completely miserable. I hope you feel better soon!

Feeling much better today but still have ramped up morning sickness, the difference is now I just feel gaggy and I dont actually need to puke and I feel better after I eat instead of worse. YAY

In other news OMG I want a doppler sooooo bad and DH wont buy me one and all our "extra" money is going into a new car fund for when the baby comes, i really support that and everything but gosh I would practically for a doppler and I know it will work because it did at the Dr.s office and they use the same model I want. AHHH LOL it's really driving me crazy I tried to convince him it would be an early christmas present but he still didnt give in. Soo if anyone feels like buying me one I want the Sonoline B and its 55.00 on ebay give or take. PM me for my shipping address LOL but Seriously I want one soooo bad

I have a terrible picture today but I am too queasy to care lol. I've been soo sick today almost as bad as Friday ugh I hope this starts getting better soon. I used to be glad of it and knowing it was a good sign but even that is starting to wear off and now I just get worried that it all means nothing. It's not really a good day, Im sick of feeling sick.

So I finally got to order my doppler today cause I got a bonus from work YAY! Im a little worried about it actually getting here because our address is weird we have one mailing address and one shipping address and I put in my shipping address then found out they were using the post office so I told them my other address and now they have it like
Rebecca H
4xx2 Cxxxx Rd.
PO BOX 884 Axxxx Bxxxx NY 14xxx
Spxxxxxxxxx NY 14xxx

So like both addresses are now combined into one ugh and it's been shipped so we'll see what happens. I hate having 2 addresses I want a mailbox out front! I want it here like yesterday!

I think I might be starting to turn a corner in this pregnancy. Today I didnt really feel that sick, I actually got hungry 2 or 3 times, and I felt a lot more alert. Of course I still had a lot of other symptoms, sore boobs, my headaches, round ligaments, and Im starting to get clumsy lol I think I tripped a million times today and I spilled cheese balls all over! LOL!

Oh and back to my boobs they are huge! I started out a C, bought a d like a week ago maybe 2 weeks? And now Im popping out of that. I can't believe I'm going to have to buy a DD! Thats what my mom wears and her boobs are gigantic LOL! Oh well at least right now I can look hot cause Im still losing weight. I think I've lost 6 or 7 pounds now, so I hope I can start gaining soon, but I hope it's all belly haha.

Anyway DH is teaching a class tonight so I get to just chill and watch tv so that's what Im going to do. I'm starting to get addicted to Wheel Of Fortune like an old lady lol!
I wouldnt mind

so I just checked and my doppler was sorted through my regional facility which is in the city. It still says expected delivery friday. I really hope it makes it's way to my mailbox easily and quickly I need it! Today was a hard day at work so I've been having a little more soreness than normal and I've been constipated majorly like no going since Friday. So today I had a chance to get some out but I still had to strain and I ended up with some funky CM which had me a little freaked out. Just when I thought I would be able to be happy that I didnt have m/s tonight, I want it back! Oh well I guess I was about on schedule for having a nervous breakdown anyway. And in other terrible news it's storming so I will never fall asleep!

I got my doppler!!! Im so happy I think it's the best thing I've ever gotten in the mail! I found my baby's heartbeat right away and it was still 175-180 I dont know for sure cause she or he wouldn't stay still and kept floating off. I couldn't record it on my phone either like I wanted to. But I was really nervous and excited too so I will try again tomorrow or sunday and see if I can pin it down and get a better reading. I'm a little worried that it is so high. I know 180 is still "normal" but I feel like everyone else's are in the 160's. Oh well I go for my NT scan monday so we will see what they say then.

Mine was that high in the beginning and the further along you get the more it starts to level out. Mason's is usually in the 140-150s now.

I'm really tired today. I think I'll take a nap in a little bit then maybe listen to baby again. I wanted to leave him or her alone today, but I just need to hear it for a second and it's been 24 hours since the last time already. Maybe Ill wait and do it before bed though. Today I sold the crib I had gotten for foster care. I didn't love it I had just been looking for a cheap crib I could get quickly and it didn't really match my vision for the room and it was too big. So anyway I bought it for 75 and sold it for 100 so I even made a little profit. Now I'm debating wether to save the money for a new crib which was the original plan, or to buy some clothes considering only like 2 of my shirts cover my belly now. I was planning on getting clothes in November I'm just not sure If I will make it another 2 weeks or so. I was hoping my parents would come out to visit sometime soon because i know my mom would take me shopping lol but they are too busy right now. Oh well I'll think about it. Tomorrow is my next ultrasound. It's first trimester screening which Im not really that concerned with I just decided one I could see the baby right at the end of the first trimester and hopefully relax more, and 2 if something was wrong we would have lots of time to prepare and get the best care and everything. The bad part is we just found out that ultrasounds are apparently considered part of our deductible that i didn't even know we had, so we already got an estimate of $96 for the last one which was just dating. I'm scared what this one is going to be. I considered canceling it but I'm still having pain presumably from my cyst so I really want to get that looked at again and make sure everything really is fine. Oh well, guess we will be paying up.

NT scan in an hour can't wait to see my baby actually looking like a baby! Yay. I'm not as nervous this time because I checked the heartbeat last night, but I dont think Ill ever stop being nervous when I go to an appointment or scan. It makes it really hard to drink the required water when you feel like throwing up lol. Ill update with pictures when I get home.

Well everything was good I think and since I was more worried about baby in general than the birth defects Im happy cause baby was active and HB was 165 She/he even did a headstand while we were watching. There was a brief glimpse between the legs but it was really too quick to say, my first impression was girl but I want it to be soo bad that I dont really trust that lol. We are getting a gender scan at my moms office the day after thanksgiving I think as long as the tech doesnt have anything else come up. YAY. Ill post the pictures of baby up on the second page with the bellys
