Hi jodyrski! I was beginning to think you forgot about me. haha Anyway, glad to hear you are back with your husband. I don't think I could go that long away from him. That's great that you've already had a baby shower. I'll probably have mine around Sept/Oct. I love your names you have picked out. We have some picked out too...Silas Jeremiah for a boy and Carrington Rebecca for a girl. I had an appt. this week and I've gained just 7 pounds so far, all of my blood work came back very positive (low risk of downs or spinal defects), and my baby is being so active that the doctor had a hard time hearing the heartbeat b/c it wouldn't stop moving. Have you felt your baby move yet? Mine's been moving non-stop for about 2 weeks now. I can feel it outside my stomach too so my husband and family has been enjoying feeling it. My next appt is Tuesday, July 15 to find out the sex. I can't wait! You'll have to keep me updated on your appointments too. Let me know what you are having when you find out. Oh yeah, I've had 2 dreams in the past 2 weeks that we are having a girl. Maybe it's a sign, I don't know. We'll find out soon though. Talk to you soon.
Well I had my ultasound the other day. We are having a baby boy!! So Killian James it is. I haven't gained much weight yet either I think its been 5 lbs which is till not over the weight that I dropped from the beginning. But the doctors say I'm healthy and so is the baby. It was so neat to see all the part of the baby developing. I'm even more excited for Killian to get here now! The babies heartrate was 153. And hes 13oz. And he had my husbands feet, makes me laugh. We just found out that we could go into the other city which is about 45min away and get a 3D ultasound for cheap like $30. So I might look into that in the next few weeks to come. At one point in the ultasound the baby was sucking his thumb and my husband jokingly told him to take his hands hands out of his mouth and he took his thumb out so fast and turned around it was so funny. All day and night he wouldn't stop moving so last night was the first night I hardly got any sleep because he kept jabbing and moving around so much.
Congrats on a baby boy!! I had my ultrasound this week too and I'm also having a boy! Silas Jeremiah. We are so thrilled and my husband very relieved! I agree that it was so neat seeing all the parts of the baby. I'm glad to hear you are doing healthy and so is your baby. That's cute that he was sucking his thumb. That's much better than what Silas was doing. My little boy was holding his wee wee for one of his pictures. It was hilarious! The doctor said "yep, they start pretty young!" I haven't been kept up at night yet with the moving around, but I do feel him very often during the day. It's such a neat thing especially when my husband feels it too. Glad to hear everything is going well. Keep in touch!
Just checking in to see how you and baby are doing. its been a while! Everything here is doing good. Just got my results back from my GD test and they are negative! YAY! Other then that my pregnancy has been pretty quiet and good. Feeling all of my sons moves and enjoying every minute of it. I can't believe how fast this is going. We only have 11 weeks left! Hope all is well!
Hey there! Glad to hear from you. My baby is getting big and is so active and I'm doing great too! I started feeling hiccups last week so that's been fun. My GD test also came back negative so that's good too. Seems like the two of us have had a pretty good pregnancy so far. It's hard to believe we only have 11 weeks left. Is your nursery ready yet? Have you had any showers? My first shower is Sept. 27. I can't wait to see all the cute gifts. The nursery is a work in progress, but we're slowly getting there. Hope to hear from you soon. Take care!
Glad to hear that you and baby are doing great too. And yes it does seem we both have had a pretty good pregnancy. I know less then 11 weeks, YIKES! But so excited, can't wait. My nursery is all ready. In fact most of our buying for baby will come to an end as of Oct 1st of stuff we need need before he gets here, then we can start saving and buy ourself stuff for christmas so we have stuff for under our tree. I had my baby shower back in the states when I went to visit in June/July, I was 17 weeks. I don't know if my husbands unit at work will throw us one or not, and if not we have everything we need for now, we could always use gift cards for diapers and that about it. And its a bunch of young single guys 18-25yr old. I don't know if they would even know what to buy for a baby. My friend wants to throw me one on base here but I dont' even know who I'd invite, I dont know very many people, 5 if I'm lucky. Have a good one and keep me up to day with everything! Btw another good site I've been going to is Whattoexpect.com it is kinda like this but more talking and questions asked.
well i'm on my third baby and this pregnancy feels like its my first. a totally different experient from my other two pregnancies. my first baby i was not lazy or had any kind of sickness, my second baby, i craved all kinds of meat and fast food, ewww. and right now i'm over my morning sickness, which stopped about a month ago. (the longest ever) i had the worst morning sickness ever, slept all day and ate nothing, i couldn't stand the kitchen, i truggled to cook for my kids, and the fridge and freezer were my worst nightmare. right now that i'm in my third trimester things just got a little easier, but i can't stand the sight or smell of meat. but have the craziest craving for candy and bakery...yummy!
My water broke at 355am on Monday November 3rd. I called the hospital at 5:30 am, we were there by 5:45am. By 1030am I felt more and more contractions and thought I was going to have to push in the next hour or so. They checked me and I was dialated to 7cm. By 11:30am I was ready to push and they gave me pain meds via IV to well with the pain a little. I push until 1:09pm when he was fianally born. No epidural for me!! Dan cut the cord. They took Killian right away over to the docs because he was having som respitory problems. He was breathing pretty fast. they got that under contol and started cleaning him up. In the mean time they were delivering my plancenta and I started to hemorage. They coudn't find where I was bleeding from. They ended up having to give me 2 units of blood. I got poked proteted and what not. I was giving pain meds so I was in and out of it, having them constantly ask me if was was still with them9they were surprseid I was able to stay awake and not have passed out), and I was so drugged on I believe morphine all I could really do was keep my eyes closed and just keep answering yes and listening what was going on in the room and having a ton of people touching and sticking me with needles and pushing on my stomach. From 1:09pm-530pm I was in recovery, slept most of the time. Threw a few times. At 530pm Daniel and Killian fianlly came in and checked on me because I was fianlly awake. I got to hold him for the first time. I was in the hospital until Wednesday at around 2pm when we fianlly walked in our front door all 3 of us together. We are all doing good. Killian has a bad sucking reflex so I have to pump. And he is getting formula. I will be giving him my breast milk via bottle once it comes in. This evening I did get enough to give him some at one of his feedings. We are at home resting. He was 6lbs 3.5 oz 18 1/2 inches long
Oh my goodness!! CONGRATULATIONS! I'm so glad you are all doing well. Wow, you had your baby pretty quick. I'm so jealous that you are able to hold your baby boy already. I had a doctor appointment Nov. 7 and had no signs of progress...no dilation yet...just my cervix has softened some. I really hope this week she tells me I'm dilated a little. As for how I'm feeling, well I'm feeling more and more achy in my bones and joints. I am so ready to hold my baby boy Silas. I'm so glad to hear from you again and I wish you the best of luck! If you have any pictures, I'd love to see them. It's been great chatting with you and following your pregnancy since early on. Keep me updated on how things are going. I'll keep you updated on my baby too!
