Ok. some backround. I had my 1st daughter Emily when i was 17. I was young and thought i was in love until i found out my bf was cheating on me so i broke it off when i was around 5 months pregnant. My pregnancy was great but my father drowned on my moms bday (october 21st 2000) and at my next apt they couldn't hear hb so they had me really worried and sent me for an ultrasound where i saw my little baby and her heart was beating away. I had her on June 12, 2001 and my grad was on June 19th, so she was there with me.
When Em was 5 months old i met a man who i thought was great. I really wanted a father for Emily and he just kind of fell into place. We had Elizabeth in 2003. The girls were only 22 months apart so I was super busy. Me and "him" got married in 2004 and it was on and off hell. Mostly just hell. He was finally diagnosed with Bi-polar in 2008 but by then i was just so done. He was mean and miserable.We had been trying to get pregnant for a long time after beth was born. I was on clomid and had a bizillion tests done. Now i just think to myself that everything happens for a reason. We seperated in 2008. I am officially going to be divorced in 30 days
Me and Scott met in the summer.
He was not my type at all but we really fit very well. I tease him because he can he such a hippy sometimes. He is very enviromental and hates garbage etc. He loves video games and is amazing with the girls. I've always known i wanted another child, a boy would be nice, but another girls would also be awesome too. We weren't trying but not preventing either. Because I had been on fer. drugs with no luck i just assumed we wouldn't be able to get pregnant by ourselves. Halloween i woke up and took a test .I just felt kind of off. really tired, and i noticed i wasn't having my regular pms symptoms (crazy sore back) so i took at test and it was -. I had just bought the new high sensitive tests from early pregnancy tests.com. That night we drank a bottle of wine (figured it was ok b/c test was - ) with dinner.
The next morning i still felt ick so i took another test and left it and the girls were at school and scott left for work. I forgot about it and then later noticed it on the counter and saw a really faint line. I took a FRER and it was super dark. I was so shocked and excited. I went to walmart and bought a really cute little sleeper and wrapped it up. The girls were out that night at a sports thing and i gave him the present and it took him a minute to get it, then he was like, omg. your pregnant! and super excited. I couldn't hold it in so that night while the kids were at the sports thing i went and bought pop and chips and when they got home i told them we were having a party to celebrate. They asked what we were celebrating and i said guess~ Emily (9) guessed it on the first guess. She was so excited! Heres a pic of our little party:
The pregnancy has been pretty good and unexciting. At about 8 weeks i started the whole nausia crap. I've only actually thrown up once. My hips were hurting really bad at night but that has gone away thank god. I can't have any chocolate and that really sucks, the second i have any chocolate my head starts throbbing and milk makes me feel super icky. I used to love milk and drink at least 3 glasses a day so i'm not sure what the heck happened.
Yesterday was my Nt scan and it was amazing. Here are the pics:
I told the facebook world yesterday and my aunty tagged "boy parts" in one of the pictures, god I laughed
What a roller coaster but sounds like you are really happy and everything is turning out wonderful for you. Thanks for sharing your story and I look forward to getting to know you better and getting to read about your journey. By the way, those ultrasound pics are amazing. 3d/4d is the most amazing thing ever. Thank you for sharing.
well, today was my prenatal. I was 13 weeks by ultrasound dates. I waited for over an hour and the apt was maybe 7 minutes. Just did urine sample, checked my weight, which was actually down 2 pds and asked how things were going. she listened for babes hb and it was 161! it was 154 at the ultrasound last week. I told her im still having horrid headaches that seem like tension headaches and she said she'll send me for massage therapy works for me, i'm super excited for that. The girls went back to school today and df had the day off bc it was a stat so we spent the day alone. It was super nice.
Thursday March 3rd, 2011- wow. I was so stressed out all weekend after hearing that there was fluid. I called the ultrasound place and they scheduled me in for Monday. All weekend I was a mess. I googled what it could mean and it was horrible. I will never google again. One of the websites said down syndrome and from there on I flipped out. Em had a dr.s apt so I decided I would talk to the dr. then but on Tuesday I went for the apt and the secretary said I had the wrong day (she got it wrong, on Monday she said tomorrow at 11) SO, I went back on Wednesday and the dr. was on call and had to go to the hospital to deliver a baby. I explained to the secretary that I was very worried and I wanted my results from the nt testing to set my mind to rest. She called me and let me know that my results were very very low. 1 in 2700. So that was awesome. There is still fluid but its 3mm and that’s still considered healthy. Anything over that is not so they are going to send me back in a month to look at it again. I have faith that everything is going to be wonderful. This whole scare made me realize what is important in life. I am going to either do my school at home online or else take the year off because babies will only be little for a short while. I love my baby girl so much already. She loves chocolate milk and kicks like crazy when I have it. She also loves fake champagne, (sparkling white grape juice). I’m so in love with her. I have been shopping lots. I love shopping for girls. I have been buying headbands, and pink sleepers and slippers.
Friday March 4th, 2o11- I have been eating all day. Baby girl has been moving like crazy all day today and yesterday I love her SO much already. I am such a clumbsy wreck. I made a beautiful steak diner with brussel sprouts and baked potatoes and had bacon and sour cream on it and then when I went to put it on the table I dumped my plate upside down. AGH. Thank god there was more on the stove otherwise I would have cried.
March 8th, 2011- 22 WEEKS!!!! woohooo. took some more belly pics yesterday. I am feeling great (pregnancy wise) loving the movement. I seem to be getting another cold tho. I hate that i get sick so easily when Im pregnant.
