18wks 2 day

I met my Family Doctor for the first time.... it is so ironic
that he use to be my Late mother in law and my hubby's
Family doctor over the last few years.....wait til he discovers
who my hubby & Late mother in law is. He has a huge sense
of humor and I love seeing that when it comes to the medical
field...normally I am use to the Medical team being so serious
and to see a smile most of the visit is nice and welcoming.
He said I am fairly healthy even with the two reasons
that I am seeing him which is asthma and high blood pressure.
He agrees with my ObGyn that it is manageable and not so
high that it is alarming but he knows of a highblood pressure
medicine (low dose) that is safe for pregnancy and has
prescribed it to pregnant women many times before...I just
need to have my ObGyn call him to confirm that it is ok for
him to write the script. He wants to see me in a month...
he likes the idea of low- no sodium for my food and drink
intake and try to workout,walk daily....he said cause i am
a big girl that if I could maintain my weight that, that would
be great. Where as my Prenatal dietitian saids I can gain
weight slowly (over the last 4 weeks 1/2 a pound a week)
and this is for the 2nd trimester. My Family doctor wants
to see me in a month. He said good luck with my pregnancy.
So now I am exited about my ObGyn appointment in 2 days...
8 days til my sis finds out what she is having.

2- 7-12 18wks 3days

Today is my hubby's maternal grandpa's bday.
We will be attending his bday party and family
gathering this weekend. I haven't seen my hubby
s side of the family since late summer 2010.
So it has been AWHILE!!!! Tomorrow is my 7th
ObGyn appointment. I said to my mom about an hour
ago or so.... I was like " So I just took a pregnancy test"
my mom had a smile on her face and said that I am the
only woman she knows who would do something like that
lol. It said my favorite 8 letters. I am going to wait til I am
in the 3rd trimester like 32 weeks before I take the very
last digital that I have. It is still fun to take them. After
my last one...I will be done taking them (this pregnancy)
I really look forward to my Anatomy scan big time so I can
say "my baby boy" or "my baby girl" to better think about
how I want to do baby's nursery ect and even get colored
diapers.....white is a little too plain for me.(if they make
gender diapers)So we told the last person on my hubby's side of the family (his dad today) he knows the soonest that we can have this baby is on his bday (which is @ the end of June). so its great
that everyone knows. If I could of held out telling my news...
I would of loved to waited til l knew the gender but that was
not meant to be....starting @ 7wks my sister just knew I was
preggo and I never told her anything...so yeah this baby
wanted to be talked about RIGHT AWAY! So I pray my
appointment goes very well tomorrow.

1 week til my sister finds out what she is having.

a picture of my last pregnancy test is in 1st post.

18wks 4days Feb 8th,2012

Happy Bday to my hubby!!! He turned 29 today.

I would like your vote:
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...l-entries.html

So my appointment today went mostly good....
baby's heart rate is in the 160's. Last time my
baby's heart rate was 165-170. I asked my ObGyn
is my uterus feeling heavy and some pressure normal
and my ObGyn said yes, that means my uterus is growing..
(so what I have read is true) My blood pressure for the 1st
time out of 7 visits is normal....so yea to that.
My urine catch however had a little protein in it
so my ObGyn wants me to do a 24 hour catch ( I am so
not thrilled about this ) this starts tomorrow. Then I return
it to the lab on Friday morning. Then I have to do blood work
for many reasons....something related to this 24 hour urine
catch that I have to do, routine std testing that they do
through out pregnancy, a test to make sure that I do not
have Gestational diabetes.( i hope not ) so they are taking
many vials of blood ( also I am not thrilled about this ) My
ObGyn thinks I will feel the baby move regularly starting
sometime next month....and for this being my first pregnancy
(past the 1st trimester) probally explains why I do not feel
movement just yet and @ 18 wks she said the baby is still
pretty small......that it did not have much to do with my weight.
I asked about if I should be put on a blood pressure medicine
safe for pregnancy and my ObGyn wants to continue monitoring
my blood pressure for now, and will let me know if I ever need
that medicine. Oh back to the blood draw thing this Friday...
another test is that Triple Screen Test (which comes with an ultra
sound@ some point) so yeah this will be a busy rest of the week for me.

p.s. I had put Triple screen but it is quad screen
that I meant.

6days til my sister finds out what she is having!!!!
12 days til l find out what I am having. So exited!!!!

18wks 5days Feb 9th,2012

What are the chances that in the same day (today)
my mom has a dream about me holding my baby...
she couldn't tell if my baby is a boy or girl.
Then not too long ago I see the lady that plans
to throw me a baby shower She honked her horn
and would not leave her spot til l walked up
near her car and she gave me her phone number.
Seeing her for the 2nd time this month makes
me so exited for May or June 1st to have a baby
shower. She wants me to have a girl...I hope she
will not be disappointed (if) she finds out that I am having
a boy. Time will tell...but I am taking both of
my mom's dream and seeing my friend that plans
to throw me a baby shower both as really great signs!!!

11 days til Anatomy Ultrasound for the baby.

Tomorrow I am going to a party for my hubby's
87 year old grandpa to celebrate his bday and
it is a family gathering. I havent seen these people
since late Summer 2010...so this will be interesting.
I wonder if anyone (cause they should all know)
will be talking to me about my pregnancy ect ect ect.
time will tell.

5 days til my sister has her Anatomy Ultra sound for her
baby.

Tomorrow I return the big jug of pee (24 hour urine catch)
all to make sure my baby and I are healthy....
then blood draw..... (in the morning) then the party
in the evening.

i will update my journal tomorrow to let everyone
know how the party went. (this will be the first bi racial
baby to join my hubby's maternal side of the family...
so some people may actually not be too thrilled about
my pregnancy....but I love my baby anyway.

18wks 6days
So I turned in my 24 hour urine to the Lab....
and they tried to draw blood twice but only got
a tube and a 1/2 so I have to go back in on Monday
to try again.... I guess I didn't drink enough water : (
I am so not happy but I have to do what is best for
baby.

I am about to get ready for the party/family gathering.
I hope it goes well. l am telling myself , no matter what
to not bring up anything about my pregnancy, to let
others or hubby do it : ) I will ask hubby to bring my scrap
book in case anyone would like to see the 3 ultra sound
pictures that I do have.....but I do not want to make this
party/gathering about me@ all. I will update how
party/family gathering went when I get home.

4 days til my sister finds out what she is having.
10 days til l find out what I am having.

I have a feeling I am having a boy but what if I am having
a girl....eeeek!!!!

The party went great!!!! So glad I went because his
extended family is more exited then my own family
(maybe) because they are just finding out and my
family has been knowing since Nov 2011. So I loved
all the attention. The person I was worried the most
about (his grandma) I showed her my baby's scrap
book of the 3 ultra sound pictures and she had a really
huge smile on her face. Before making it to the party
I asked her eldest daughter counting the great grand
children of my hubby's grandma what is it time for in
the family and she said ( a girl ) this baby will be my
hubby's grandma's great grand baby #9
9 is how many kids my mom had........I asked the
girl twins what did they think I was having...going by
what they know about my husband and what they
know about me...and the tall one said boy. the shorter
one said girl.....time will tell.....this family can not wait
to hear what I find out in 10 days...I think it was one
of my sister in laws who said...she hopes my baby shows
the goods....I hope so too..... I hope these next 10 days
some how fly by.

3 hours til my ticker saids that I am 19 weeks.

Feb 13,12 19wks 2days

I have to repeat blood draw today (that was un successful
last Friday) Tomorrow morning my sis finds out what she
is having!!!! I hope she is happy no matter what she finds
out. She wants a girl, her baby daddy wants a boy.
5 days til l reach 20 weeks. (1/2 way point)
1 week til l find out what we are having
The baby should be doing some major growth this week
cause a chart saids that @ 20 weeks the baby is 10.5 inches
where as @ 19 weeks the baby is 6.5 inches. Any way
I better get off of here. Have a great day everyone!!!!!

19wks 2 days post 2

So I got to the place to get my blood draw and later
give them a urine sample (that goes with that multy
reason blood draw) it was a success.

The negative (that i see as a positive) is that I have
to re-do my 24 hour urine starting tomorrow-Wednesday.
and then Wednesday turn in the 24 hour urine,
get a blood draw( they need less tubes ) that goes
with the 24 hour urine. No I do not look forward to
doing these things again...but it will help this week
to go much faster.

I called my nurse cause I have been having this weird
pain on the left side of my pelvis... I read online about
round ligament pain and it said it is more often on
the right side of the pelvis and this is the left for me.
I found this article: Round ligament pain | BabyCenter I hope this is the pain that I am having on and
off (especially when I change positions and go from
doing something active, to doing less)

I hate them 24 hour urine samples. I did those so many times in both of my pregnancies. The worse was in the hospital when they had to cather me 4 24 hours. I always spilled urine n mine. Was diagnosed with pre eclampsia.

I dis like the idea of a cather because I heard that they can cause
Uti's I glad you had healthy babies/kids, even though you
had to do those 24hour urine samples a lot. Here @ my house
I am dealing with stairs, a bathroom upstairs and down stairs
and it depends on which bathroom is not busy, for when I can
use the jug thing.....and I have to use the stairs a lot either way...
when my room is upstairs...so it is no picnic. but a healthy baby
is what matters. What did they have you do being
Pre
eclampsia?

Aw Neka how did you do it?????? I am glad that you did
that for your children.

20wks!!!!! Feb 18,2012

Happy 20 weeks to my baby. I went to the E.r. this
past Wed. because I was having weird pains in my back
and in my pelvis...and once had a discharge that looked
yellowish so they checked my urine and did an ultra sound
and everything checked out really Great!!! I let the ObGyn
know that I am waiting to get results from my ObGyn
about all of my blood work, 24 hour urine...l think they
call if something is wrong and they need me to call in.
I am thinking about calling my nurse soon (because my
next/8th ObGyn appointment is March 7th) that is too
far away if they found anything wrong (in my opinion)
hopefully nothing is wrong. Or if something is wrong,
that it is fixable. @ the E.R. the doctor checked my cervix...
closed and it is still thick and he said that is really good!
My mom was right that everything is ok with baby & I.
The baby's heart rate is 150. I enjoyed my 5 days
away from J.M. I am not totally coming back regularly til
2/24. 2 days til l find out what I am having. Happy Bday
to my dad. 20 more weeks to my pregnancy. My next
milestone is 30 weeks. Anyone who prays...keep the prayers
coming. I will update this journal with any new news. 2/20
or 2/24.

20wks 5days 2/20 Post #2

So I had the big Anatomy Scan today ( I think it took an hour )
and some parts of that probe in my lower belly was un comfortable
especially when my bladder got real full. My mom and hubby
were with me. The tech had a feeling that she saw what she saw
but said that she wanted to check a couple more times before saying
anything to me......our baby moved a lot @ times...it was really
hard for her to get a nice face profile (but i told her, whatever
she could get, I would be fine with) I also had a dvd(cd) made of
my whole ultra sound experience where she typed out what each
part of the baby is and would pause it in the video.... and I got a
lot of pictures , so working on my scrap book will be a lot of
fun. This whole time I just knew I am having a boy....and lots
of people thought I am having a boy...only a very small handful
of people thought I was having a girl....well this is once cause
that minority is right.... we are blessed with a little girl.
Grow baby girl!!!!I am measuring 3 days
ahead so I am going to go with my new due date 7/4/12 which
happens to be one of my sis in law's bday. Last night my sis
in law(one of them) had a dream that my baby girl has mexican
toned skin and lots of dark black hair......so her dream was
accurate about me having a girl. In the ultra sound pictures/
video I was interested in how her lips were...if they were big like
mine or on the smaller side like my husband and they are
smaller like my husband and his side of the family....So that is
cool. Her eyes are big (which hubby & I both have big eyes)
So we shall see the details after birth. The tech said baby girl is
Perfect! that my cervix is nice and thick and long enough for the
rest of my pregnancy. She ran the ultra sound pictures by the
doctor of that part of the hospital and he said he wanted to
do my ultra sound one more time (shorter version) he said he
was only concerned about one of my baby's ankles or foot was
bent inwards but when he did the ultra sound she straightened
her legs out, so that is perfect as well.....the baby is able to bend
joints easier @ this point because the bones are hardening @ this
time. I asked that doctor if he could try to get a better face profile
and he said he would try...the baby was really calm by the time
the doctor did the ultra sound so got a nice picture of the baby's
face profile. (thanks doc) so when the doctor left the room
and it was just hubby, my mom, tech and I....I asked her if
through the ultra sound should she see if my pelvis is wide
enough for a Vaginal birth and she said that is a question
to ask my ObGyn so I will do so. I hope its a really great sign
but I finally noticed that, that tech is also expecting@ 20 weeks
due 7/13 (9 days after me) Its nice knowing what we are
having and I thank Jesus that we are having a little girl.
Thinking about how I plan to get part of my room ready for
baby, getting baby things, baby furniture ect. The nesting
phase is def. inside my heart. A lot of people are wanting
to know our little girl's name...but we are not spilling the
beans til l fill out that Birth Certificate. Hubby was a little
disappointed when we found out the news, but he quickly
recovered and settled with the news with a smile. Maybe
next time we will have his son (to pass down his family name)
as a daughter could go off and marry in the future. So this
was my Happy Surprise today. In 2 days I turn 21 weeks.

Adding Todays Ultra Sound Pictures on 2/24 @ sometime.

P.S. Baby's heart rate is 157
and she is 13 ounces @ this time,
the tech said that is in the average.
THE angry uterus likes this.
