1st appointment

Well I had my first OB was at 9am I finally got to see the Dr at 11am...He was very through...

The good news is I'm right on target for 10weeks...I have a grapefruit sized uterus...just what everyone wanted to know right? I can get an ultrasound at 18 weeks...if I wasn't so honest I could have had a sizing ultrasound but I'm too honest.

The funny news...since I turned 35 on my last birthday I'm now considered "high risk"...this cracks me up as my birthday was just in December...and my best friend who is about 8 weeks ahead of me isn't in the same high risk group and she is 35 also!!! Alls it means is I'll get a more in depth ultrasound, a few more blood tests, and the offer of an amniocentesis...which I think I'm going to decline because sick or not it won't change how I feel...I'm still its mother and will love it and care for it no matter what Heavenly Father throws my way. The only thing it would do is let me do research on the sickness and cause more worry and no pregnant lady needs to worry like that!!

Update on the "streaks" they are totally normal and have seemed to stop...its been well over 2 weeks and even my exam with the Dr did not make any happen. Feeling really good but not over confident as anything could still happen...

It was a good day...even got a nap in...this baby is wearing me down...maybe its my!

Hope everyone had a good day!!

Other than Lee and a few church friends I haven't told anyone this...

I have had a few streaks of blood...nothing major and not everyday or even every time I use the bathroom. I panic every time I see it and pray right on the spot. I end up with the worst morning sickness the next day. I have my first appointment in a little over a week so I'm feeling ok with it because like I said its streaks and only every now and then.

I share only because this is like my journal...and who knows someone might read this and feel better about it them self...if it happens to them!

Feel ok...

ok I'm 7 weeks and I'm past the point of the previous miscarriage. I know I'm not out of the woods yet as anything could happen...but I feel good so far.

I have a few days were the morning sickness I think will kill me ok not that bad but most of you understand. Heartburn has set in already...will I have a baby with lots of hair...probably not I had heartburn from day one with Kenny and he wasn't hairy at all...or bald he had the perfect amount of hair.

I have lots of ideas in my head...cloth diapers, new crib (maybe), new other baby stuff as we lost all or most in the flood. I was lucky enough to have stuff in totes that survived.

I have my first appointment on the 21st...I find it funny that I've had 4 different ob/gyn's since adulthood. Plus I will deliver my kids in 3 different hospitals...I could see it if we were a military family or even a doctor in residency but its funny that we are "home bodies" and we will have this happen. I know we have moved A LOT but the last few have been in close proximity and we will still have our Michigan babies at different hospitals...simply because of my work...I have insurance to go anywhere but why pay more when I have what I need at the hospital I work at?

Seeing Emily's post on making sheets gave me a few ideas...and her cloth diaper...oh the things I can do with my fabric I have...and maybe buy!
