So im sure that everyone knows how when your pregnant your extremely emotional. Im getting better as the weeks go on but i still find myself crying at the drop of a hat. I cry at the slightest things and cry sometimes when im confused. As the weeks progress it is getting slightly better but is still there. One of my very close nestie friends had her daughter this week and i balled when she sent me pictures. I even cried when she told me she was crying at the sight of the flowers i had sent her. It really doesn't take much.

I finally had my hair cut which I so desperately needed after not being able to while on bed rest. My stylist is extremely sweet and was so excited to hear that I was expecting. She also made a guess on the gender for the baby and like everyone else seems to think that it is a boy. I look forward to a relaxing weekend at the orchard fall festival even though im feeling like a pumpkin myself.

Nothing new yet..

Its about 2 weeks until my appointment and so far no really big changes. I still am having a discharge but dont worry she knew about this at my last appointment. Im just hoping its not some type of infection. One of my very very good friends is in labor as we speak, however, she lives in Illinois so were chatting via text so i know how shes doing. Im so excited for her to meet her daughter.

Everyone keeps asking, literally every day if im feeling movement. To be honest, not really. I have these moments where i feel a sort of tingling feeling but from everything i read im not sure if thats the baby or im just crazy lol. Its always around or above my belly button. From everything ive read, its suppose to be lower and once you feel it, you should feel it non stop. Well i may or may not feel it about once a day nothing consistant. So if anyone knows if thats it please let me know :)

Crib search

We have been looking at cribs for a while now. Were going to attempt to go to the last place which is about 40 minutes away. So far the one we like is online at They have great furniture! If Nick starts to feel better then were going and i cannot wait just so we can say we have looked everywhere and finally make a decision. I like to check things off the list and this is a big one. So im crossing fingers nick feels better soon! Ive also been very into the fall season even though its hotter then heck here!!!

Im so in the mood for pumpkins and spice and fall fashion! Im thinking happy fall thoughts!

The Name Game

So we have been asked several times if were thinking about any names. We definately have names chosen for a girl or a boy. The middle names are up in the air between a few choices but we'll decide once we know what the baby is. Everyone keeps asking if we will tell them. We decided we want to keep the name a secret until the baby is born. We literally aren't telling anyone, not even our parents. Since were going to tell the gender we just wanted to keep one thing as a surprise.

Were hoping the doctor will also release us at the next appointment so that we can go home for a shower that our mom's are throwing us :) I just have to make sure that i can travel on the road for twelve hours since im a high risk pregnancy. If we can well be home at Thanksgiving. I really really want to convince nick to take an extra day so we can stop off and see Michelle's new baby girl :) I'll keep working on him hehe. Thats all for now! Take care.

So we thought we'd find out if we were having a son or a daughter but to our surprise thats a big no. We walked into the Ultrasound and she looked at my placenta and cervix and i mean really looked at that placenta which im happy about. I inquired about this being our anat. scan and she said it wasnt when we were clearly told it was. I am too early for that scan and had issues with downing two bottles of water before hand, which i actually threw up from drinking too fast and barely had any in me.

She stated she thought things looked great and that this will be the last time the whole baby will fit on one screen, AHHHH!! Heart rate was 151 bpm and they were very very active. My doctor said she was sooo happy that things are looking better. The placenta moved away from my cervix and is reattaching! She said theres a small blood clot but apparently i had it last time and it hasnt gotten bigger so no need to worry but if i experience bleeding again not to panic.

Im still considered a high risk pregnancy but bedrest is lifted!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!! Nick had the day off and took me to lunch afterwards which was my first outing and it was short but sweet. I also brought up a few concerns i have about my BP so im doing a protein test for that tomorrow and friday. As well as i was diagnosed with Pregnancy Carpal Tunnel which is why i only have the energy to type this once. She tested me and had me put my wrists in a certain position and hold it and it was extremely painful! So now i have a splint on my right hand and wrist. Im limited to a certain amt. of computer activity and driving. She said this type of carpal tunnel is very common in pregnant women because of all the extra fluid pushing on the nerves and tendons.

My next routine appt is october 7th and for sure they are determining the gender then is what my doctor said :) I go at 9 am for the ultrasound and 10 for the doctor. Thanks to everyone for all of your prayers, we still need them because we worry every day but were glad we got some good news for a change! I apologize for any texts/messages online that i havent responded to i just can barely type as it is but im trying.

Labor Day weekend *warning: tmi*

Its usually full of fun and relaxing times and here we are lol. I am glad that nick will be off tomorrow as well and then only a few days until my doctors appointment. Praying and hoping to hear good news and not bad news. Everyone keeps asking how im doing and honestly im doing the same. I am still having the same issues as before except no bright red blood, knock on wood. Sorry for those of you who are sensitive to that talk. I still am experiencing discolored discharge (sorry TMI) but its happening regardless. This is my third week on bedrest and im hoping for a 10 min car ride today as part of my 30 minutes up a day. I cannot wait to get fresh air!

If i start not feeling well back in i go. Im more nervous about the walk to the car because im not walking that much at all. Being on bedrest is best for me and the baby but really is starting to take a toll on both my body and mind. I can barely walk without feeling dizzy and im constantly upset about not being able to do much or just getting frustrated because i cannot do anything. The next time i update will be on Weds for the big doctors appointment, wish us luck and prayers :)

One week..

Just one week until we find out if the baby is a boy or girl. Were very excited and just hope the baby cooperates. I havent felt the baby move but i know its still early for that. Typically happens between 18-20 weeks along. Ill be 17 when i go to the doctor. Im also anxious and nervous to hear how the placenta is doing. Im expecting to continue with bedrest that way i am prepared to hear that. Lately i have been waking up a few times during the night which is not fun but i guess preparing me for the future.

If you have a guess on the gender feel free to post in under my comments :) Nick and i have a guess but were keeping it a secret lol. We dont want to influence everyone else's guess.
