As I lay on my bed last night settling down, I thought I felt a little kick.  I pulled up my shirt and watched and sure enough a little kick came again.   OMG...I txt my IM and said this kid is already moving.  I'm 13 weeks today!!!  She said maybe I had gas (LOL), but as I lay there and watch, he was doing turns.  It lasted breifly, but the baby is officially moving.   We are so excited to find out what it is so my IM can start painting and planning.  Happy New Year everyone.  I have a feeling this will be a VERY good year for a lot of us!!!!!

I TOLD....

So I finally told my job!!!!!!!!!  I'm not a person to share all my business at my job so this was very hard for me.  I prayed about it, lost sleep over it and just wanted to make sure I said the right things and told them enough but not go into a lot of detail. was pretty painless.  They all took it very well and asked questions here and there.  One person said....are you sure you want to do this????'s a little too late if not because I'm growing a baby inside of me and it's not mine!!! LOL  Some people are funny!!  Some said, how are you going to feel afterwards handing the baby over....well since I haven't done it yet, I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to feel, however, I know when I see my IP's holding that sweet baby for the first time I will feel like I accomplished a miracle!!!!!!!!!!  So as for now, my bosses that I work with (all men) know and the other people throughout the office will just have to speculate, talk about me, wonder if I'm fat or pregnant (but not dare ask) until it all gets out.  Until then...on to something else.

We had our first OB visit and it went really well.  I'm on track for a c-section July 1, 2011.  Of course many things could happen between now and then, but we'll just pray that it doesn't and by the 4th of July I should be home resting and recouping.  It sounds far away, but I know it's going to fly by.  My birthday is July 20 and I already told the girls to get ready, we'll be heading somewhere nice and fun for a mini vaca!!!!    The baby's heartbeat was 160 today and my OB was happy to meet my IM and congratulated us all and sent us on our merry way.  We don't go back for 5 weeks now and then we'll be on the regular monthly appointments.

Another thing is my butt if finally feeling better from not doing the shots every night.  When I run (thru the office or whatever..not actually run..I would probably croak) I can still feel a little soreness from where I got my shots.  Now that I'm off, I think I realized how many side effects I was tired, hormonal, on edge and being starving but everything tasting horrible.  At least now I'm just starving but when I eat, it USUALLY tastes good.   Now just preparing for my family coming in town for Christmas and I'm so super excited!!! Finally me and my daughter don't have to travel...everyone is coming to us!!! And this will be the first time I've seen my family since I've been I'm sure I'll hear how big I look or how much I'm showing..but that's's expected!!!  I may or may not blog before Christmas so to everyone reading this, may God bless each of you this holiday season, have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy new year to come!!!!

Sleeping???...Not me!!

I'm not sure I know what a full night of sleep feels like anymore.  I wake up at 3am every morning and have to pee and then can't go back to sleep til about 5 or 5:30 and then this annoying buzzing starts going off around 6:20 and I'm not a happy camper!! LOL  I would say that my body is just preparing me for the sleepless nights that are to follow, but can't this baby someway know that I won't have to go thru those sleepless nights and just let me sleep.  I guess it doesn't work like that. :) Thank goodness Tay still likes to take naps on the weekends and I don't always partake in them, but this weekend I most definitely will.  I'm tired...but it's all worth it for me...for that reward at the end.  It's worth every night not sleeping!!!!!

I went to the Dr. last Saturday and they cleared me of taking any more shots.  I was soooooo happy and relieved of that.  Whatever they are counting is supposed to be higher than 15 and I was 16.6 so I am free and clear to see my regular OB on a regular schedule.  We had our initial nurse visit with my OB this past Friday and my IM got to go with me and meet the nurse that I had with Tay.  They are so great there and my nurse was really excited to hear what I was doing.   My nxt appt. is on Tues. where I will get to see Dr. Brothers, my regular OB and IM will get to go with me to meet her.  So looks like we are on a regular scheduled pregnancy. My due date is July 6, but I will have another C-Section so looks like the last week of June if all goes well I'll be blessing my IP's with a new baby.  Can't exciting!!!   I still haven't told my job!!!! I seriously need to as I'm sure they are all thinking I'm fat!!! LOL

So I know I'm behind but things have been happening and I can't seem to catch up.  The best thing that has happened in recent is one of my  best friends gave birth to her son!!!!!!!!!!!  So super awesome and love him sooo much.  Tay has been keeping me busy as always and now the holidays are here.  However, we had a dr. appointment yesterday and it was amazing!!!  The baby is doing AWESOME and we got some of the best pics.  The first pic is from 11/7 which it was barely a dot.  We went back yesterday which was 11/30 (just 23 days later) and there is a baby in there!! LOL  A real baby. It is so awesome because with a regular pregnancy you don't get pics this early and definitely not 3D pics.  The dr. measured the baby from head to toe 1 inch...LOL  But you can already see his arms crossed and little nubs for legs.  The heart rate was 165 and we are measuring a day ahead and tomorrow I'm 9 weeks!!!  I take my shots thru Thurs. skip Friday and go to the dr. on Sat.  If my hormone levels (I think) are high enough I get to stop the shots.  I can honesly say they haven't been as bad as I invisioned.  With that said, I totally will NOT be upset if I get to stop the shots!! LOL  So that's our next step.  We have an appt. on Friday with my regular OB and it will be fun to see her again. She knows I was planning this so for her to actually meet my IM and know that I'm pregnant again for someone else will be fun!!!!!!!!    So that's all for now. I'll update on Sat and let you all know if I get to stop the shots (praying) or if I have to stay on them for a bit longer.   The pics are was the best I could do. LOL
