I got my first BFP on November 4th. All our family knows, some are approving and some are not. And my close friends know, and of course the girls on JM. I have not mentioned anything on FB and honestly it is killing me! I have my first prenatal visit on November 17th and I am very nervous. My first pregnancy was, well for lack of a better word, hell. I am praying this time is so much easier. I am not really looking forward to having to do my lovenox and heparin shots again though, but it comes with the territory. Only 231 more days to go!

The exhaustion just might kill me. I have never been so tired in my life. Even when I go to bed early and wake up late I want to cry I am so tired. I slept 12 hours this past Saturday and still started dozing off through out the day. Besides the exhaustion I feel pretty good. I am definitely showing. I feel huge already. And had to bust out a pair of maternity jeans because mine don't button anymore. And the bella band just isn't doing it for me. Life in this house is still very hectic. I can't wait till we don't live with my bat $4!7 crazy ILs. But sadly it will be awhile. Harleigh has been keeping me busy so I try not think of how much I hate it here. I have my first u/s on December 2nd. I can't wait!

The nausea is full force today. It has slowly gotten worse and I am just really not a fan. I was so sick with Harleigh that I was hoping this pregnancy would be different or I would at least have more time before I got sick. Guess not. At the suggestion of a friend I am eating lemon heads and that really seems to help. Which is good because when the meds aren't working all I want to do is cry.

Can't believe its been a month since I have written. But there is so much going on my life it seems I don't have much time to be on JM. The nausea is still the same if not worse. I plan on trying a new anti-nausea drug when I see my doctor next. Slowly my back has started to hurt and I am not getting much sleep. Last night I may have gotten 2 hours all together. It is hard to believe I am 11 weeks already. But things are different then when I was pregnant with Harleigh. I am working this time around, I have a toddler to run after and we are dealing with Harleigh's issues. So in all honesty I am not very focused on this pregnancy. Other then getting rid of the nausea.

16 1/2 weeks. And right now I feel great After my OB put me on Unisom and B6, I have felt so much better. My belly is slowly growing and movements have come more frequent. Time is flying bye! We find out the gender on the 28th.

Today we had our anatomy scan. Turns out my mother intuition was way off! We are going to be having a boy! I gained 2 more pounds, so I am 1 pound over my initial weigh in. This little man moves non stop and its hard to get used to the feeling again Today was a rough day and I had a horrible migraine and could barely function. I am hoping tomorrow is way better. Due to my having contractions and severe difficulty breathing, my OB is not allowing me to work anymore. So I work tomorrow and Friday and then I am done. I am thrilled. But stressed out. I feel bad about pulling Harleigh out of daycare, but it is what it is. 20 more weeks to go
