Tuesday...24.5 weeks

Well I woke up at 4am with cramping. I didn't think anything of it. They continued until 9am so I called the doctor. They felt like PMS Cramps. I went in at 10am thinking they would check me and send me home. At 11:30 they decided to put me in the hospital for contractions. I am dilated 1 centimeter, 50% effaced, and baby is low and head down. They did a test to see if the baby would come in the next 2 weeks and it came back negative....YA!!!!!!!! So they sent me home and I am suppose to rest, but I am NOT on bed rest. I hate Resting!!!!!!! Being pregnant is no fun, oh and I gained 5 pounds in 3 weeks...holy cow!~

Lizzies funny thought!

So this morning I was asleep and sleeping on my tummy...I know you are not suppose to...but I do. Lizzie woke me up yelling...."Mommy, Mommy....Your Milk Makers are getting Squished!" Where did she get that from? Crazy Kid!

Sunday June 28th............ 24 weeks!!!!!!!! yA!!!!!!!!!!

So I have about 15 weeks left, I am so excited. I go to the doctors in a week (hopefully not 10 pounds worth of weight gain). I am starting to think about all the things I need for when the baby comes home, a carseat (should I go pink or go something for boy or girl so if the next baby is a boy?......Brad had no opinion on this), bottles (I think I am going to use the ones with a bag in them like I did for the last 2), bags for the bottles, pacifiers (I sure hope the baby uses them), diapers, thermometer (can you believe I don't own one), pads, pads, and more pads (the joys of child birth). That is what comes to mind, I need to go through baby clothes and see what I have and don't have, I am thinking I should be good though. I know I have the bassinet, and blankets. I don't use a swing with my baby's, and I have a high chair. They give you a like 3 diaper bags in the hospital so that should be good. I never know when to start buying stuff, I am kind of superstitious and don't like to buy anything until 2 weeks before, but I really want to be prepared. We will see. I also need to get a gift from the baby to the girls and from the girls to the baby (we did this when Emmie was born and it was great).

No news on the name front, I am about 80% sure it will be Madelyn.

As far as throwing up goes I still do it once a week. This last week was really bad, I didn't have time to get anywhere and I didn't have a bowl, so I empty the trash can out (all over the floor) and throw up in it. It was a small 4 QT trash and I hadn't eaten a lot that day because I wasn't feeling great, and I easily filled up over 3 Qt, it was so gross, the worse yet...I swear! 3 QT's thats a lot.

I get tired easily from walking a lot, we went to the mall yesterday and I had to keep sitting down to take a break. I am so not use to that.

But overall I am doing great and hanging in there!

Baby Names

So I researched girl names that ended in "ie" These are the ones I like

Kenadie (I am not if this is short for anything)

Anybody have any thoughts?

Wednesday the 24th...23 weeks and 4 days!

I am currently at the point where I am ready to have the baby. I want to see and hold the baby so bad. I am done with being pregnant. Even though I am not currently sick I still hate being pregnant. My feet hurt, my back hurt, I am always hungry or tired, but can't slept. I am done with this pregnant thing...man I wish I was a woman who enjoyed being pregnant. I am getting big in the tummy area and trying not to let it drive me crazy. I wore a shirt the other day that no longer fits, and it was the same shirt I wore the day I went to the hospital to have my first daughter, and it was loose then (and I was 9 months pregnant). To show how big I am compared to the last 2 little ones.

Thinking of little ones my oldest is now starting to read. I can't believe it, she is sounding out words, she read a book last night (all the words were no larger then 3 letters) and she could read it. She is getting so big. Also she swam for the first time across a pool without help or water wings. I am not sure I would call it swimming but she can doggie paddle, now I don't have to worry as much about her around water (she still loves her water wings though).

We still have no name for the baby but we are concentrating on 3 names:

Amanda....Mandie (this was a new one)

I still like McKenzie...Kenzie
or Rebekka.....Bekkie

Friday...I think 23 weeks!

My feet are swollen it hurts to walk!!!!!! How am I ever going to get grandma moved this weekend?

Wednesday, June 17, 2009


Well last night I decided I needed to start exercising so I walked with Brad and the girls 1.5 miles and felt good, we did it again today and it felt good. Hopefully we will keep it up. Brad's goal is to weigh less then me, I will hurt him if that ever happens..HA HA HA! He wants to run in a marathon the week before the baby is due! He has been running like crazy, his weight loss goes straight to my weight gain! I know I am pregnant and suppose to gain weight, but the more weight you gain the more you have to lose after you have the baby. I gained 15 pounds before I got pregnant expecting to lose at least 25 pounds like I did with the other kids. I have only lost 17 pounds so I am right where I should have been, then I gained the 8 pounds so now I think I am 8 pounds over. I know pregnant woman should gain about 25 pounds, but that is way too much for me! Am I the only pregnant woman that worries about this or am I nuts?

Tuesday June 9th...I am 22 weeks and 3 days..I think

Well a busy week last week my dad and his mom (my grandma and the girls great grandma) came to visit for a week. It was very nice and we were very busy, I think I walked 5 miles a day....and still managed to gain weight..HA HA HA. My oldest baby girl turned 5 and we had lots of fun with 2 birthday party's. I am feeling well, mornings are still hard, I am nauseous until about noon, then fine the rest of the day. I am nauseous if I eat and I am nauseous if I don't eat, so confused! I can't wait to see the baby and hold her. She still needs a name, i am thinking it is going to be Madelyn. We will see!

Doctors today!

Went to the doctors today...I gained 8 pounds...holy cow! I called Brad after they weighed me, I can't believe it, I am going to be huge! The doctor says it is good, but I don't think so, out come maternity clothes! 8 pounds...still in shock!

They changed my due date...AGAIN! Now to October 17th, which means I am 21 weeks and 2 days. The sooner the better! I can't wait to see our new little girl!

And I think that sums up the doctors!

20 weeks and 1 day...hugging the toliet

Yesterday was brad's and mine 6 year Anniversary! We hung out with the kids and I made a yummy rib dinner (first time I made ribs, they were great). I love being married to the love of my life, I am glad we have eternity together. I told him I have been pregnant for 3 of our 6 Anniversary’s! I also said we are half way to our half a dozen kids...HA HA HA!

Yesterday was a great day but today not so great. I woke up at 7am with a really bad headache. I knew hugging the toilet was coming next, around 9am it hit and the toilet and i were old friends again, out came the stomach lining. WHY???? I just don't get it, what cause these ups and downs? I went to church and felt great, lasted all 3 hours and never really felt sick. Then I came home, brad made dinner and I threw up dinner. I don't get it!!!! So, i have been down all night, hopefully this week will be better my baby turns 5!

Finally June!!!!!!! 19 weeks & 4 days!!!!!!!

Well I am doing pretty good these days. I still take it slow but overall I feel really good. I am starting to venture out on my own with the kids and I have done very well. I am tired a lot but not as nauseous as I use to be. So I am a happy camper!

Side thought:

I watched a show last night called, "I didn't know I was pregnant!" It was about women who didn't know they were pregnant until they were in labor. Why can't that happen to me??????? That would be great!!!!!! No throwing up!!!!!!!! Wake up.....in pain...go to the hospital....your having a baby!

I went to a Maternity store today to buy a nursing/maternity bra (since nothing is fitting....at least I am gaining weight somewhere...ha ha ha). I asked the store employee if I could be measured, she went and got the tape measure and when she came back she said, "Are you pregnant?" Can you believe that?????? Why would you ask someone that????? Why else would I need a maternity/nursing bra....For Fun??????? What if the answer was No? I am almost 20 weeks!
