14 Weeks

Holy cow. So I didn't realize I was 14 weeks until 2 seconds ago. Oooh. Which means only 4 more weeks until I can possibly find out what I'm having!!! Super exciting! I hope I can find out in 4 weeks...but who knows. With my luck I'll go my whole pregnancy not being able to know. I just want to know! It is so hard to look at baby stuff and not buy anything. The clothes are cute, the diaper bags are cute, even the burp rags are cute.

In other news I have lost full bladder control. And I hear it only gets worse. Don't get me wrong I'm not walking around with wet pants. But really? Out of everything - the exhaustion, my growing belly (and butt), aversion to my favorite foods - I have to add that? I guess it could be worse. I just think it's crazy the possibilities of what I could possibly get. But I guess in the end it's all worth it.

13 Weeks

So my entry into my second trimester has been rough to say the least. First a massive stomach bug which resulted in a trip to the ER. Then a cough that won't go away. So I go to my regularly scheduled appointment on Thursday and I had a fever of 102 and didn't know it. Which resulted in yet another day off work and three days doctor-mandated bed rest. So the past three days have been in bed, sleeping for the most part. Didn't know I could sleep that much. But I am feeling somewhat better.

On a better note...I am going to San Antonio!! Woo hoo! I am sooo looking forward to seeing friends and shopping! Plus...I have THE list of all lists for where I want to eat while there. Is it bad I am looking forward to eating almost as much as I look forward to Christmas? Nah.

I missed four days of work because of a stomach virus. The entire time I was nervous that my baby was starving. But after talking to a nurse, I feel much better. The nurse told me "Your baby will get what it needs. You might not. But your baby will." So I suffered through four days of hanging out in the bathroom. I went to the ER because I was so dehydrated. And it frustrated me to no end when the nurse (a different one) kept saying "Well when you're pregnant..." I knew that this was not pregnancy related. I had a fever. I was getting sick almost 24 hours. But I am better now. Well sort of. My stomach virus days have morphed into a coughing, scratchy throat, congestion mess. But at least I can eat!!

Two more days ends my first trimester. Crazy to think that I have been pregnant for 3 months! And by the end of summer I will be into my (gasp) third trimester! Which means I will have a precious baby in my arms sooner than I know it. I have a picture of the baby from my trip to the hospital. Since I had stomach cramps the doctor wanted to check out the baby and he gave me a picture. I didn't even ask! I love doctors like that! The baby was moving around like crazy! Flipping, turning, doing all these crazy positions. The nurse said it looked like the baby was doing yoga. Which turns out that the baby will most likely be this active later...when there isn't a lot of room. As my aunt says "It will be a rib kicking good time!" Oooh. Ribs. I leave on that note.

So Late!

Alright, alright! I know that this is super late! So Vegas was AWESOME! Even with my couple of slip-ups with my dad, he was still surprised! Mission accomplished! Everyone (well all the women) was crying and it was such a happy moment. I am just so happy that my mom was able to record it all. Jessica's wedding was great and it was just so nice to see everyone even though it was for a couple of days.

It is hard to believe that one week from today I will be in my second trimester! Holy fazoli! Which means I have 6 months to go! My stomach is showing a little but it all depends on what I ate or drank during the day. Speaking of size, my baby is now the size of a lime. Which makes me want a cherry limeade. My next appointment is May 15. I should be able to hear the heartbeat which makes me really excited!
