Almost 29 weeks!

The time flys when I feel good, but is so slow when I am sick!  I am still sick a good 4 hours a day and am VERY tired of not feeling well.  Friday I think I was sick a good 12 hours but Saturday I was not sick at all!  I even went boating! 

Today I took my 3 girls to breakfast at Paneras and 5 old men drinking their coffee said, "Where's the boy mom?"  I think this is a funny question, like girls aren't good enough (I know that's not what they meant).  I pointed to my belly and said, "Coming Soon!"  They said, "You're Expecting?"  Good thing they were old because I hate when people say that!  I am NOT FAT!  Look at my belly it is huge!  HA HA HA!

28 Weeks tomorrow

Well my tooth that had a root canal a few weeks ago is killing me again! I do not want to go back to the dentist but I am not sure I have any other choice! It hurts so bad! I am tired a lot and nauseous about 4 hours a day, but happy that hopefully I only have 10 weeks left!
I am 28 weeks and my cousin is 11 weeks, I have 3 cousins pregnant and due by the end of this year.  So exciting!

Our hubby's decided to compare belly's, my cousins hubby is an NFL Football player and plays for the Buffalo Bills!  My hubby looks like a midget!

27 Weeks.....Morning Sickness!

Well morning sickness has seem to set in again now that I am approaching my 3rd trimester.  I wake up sick and am typically sick until noon everyday.  Afternoons and evenings are great but I have to remind myself of that every day to get through the morning.  I took my girls to the movies yesterday at 10am and it was so hard afterwards we went to Walmart and thankfully my mom was with us because my mom said I would not have made it through the store.  I had to sit all through the store and put my head between my legs, I can sit anywhere now, bags of charcoal, dog food, towels, etc..... I feel like it is never ending and making it through another day is getting harder and harder!  I still do not want to take my zofran though!

I am Huge!

This is me at 26 weeks and I am huge!  The thing that drives me crazy is when people say, "You are pregnant?"  Do they just think I am FAT? It happened 2 days in a row last week...........the dentist went to take x-rays and I said NO, she said why not and I said because I was pregnant!  She said Oh!  Look at me!  Then my daughters pediatrician said the same thing while we were doing well kids check ups!  Do I really look that Big?  Then the other day while getting ice cream a lady asked how much longer I had and I told her and she said, "WOW You are small!"  That made me feel a little better!

26 days and 4 days

Well after yesterday's trip to the hospital I came home and had an aweful night of more cramps and pain on my left side.  I was up all night and finally at 5am I woke my husband up and said I was ready to go back to the hospital, I was in so much pain I could not stand up straight.  Something had to be wrong, I googled symptoms I was feeling and ovarian cyst and kidney stone popped up, maybe it was that but no matter what it was I thought I was going to die.  I decided to take a hot shower to see if that would help.  An hour later I was in less pain but still in pain and decided to sit in my chair for the next 2 hours in pain. 

We belong to The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and my husband holds the priesthood and can give blessings.  I asked him to give me a blessing because I did not want to go to the hospital and I did not want to be in anymore pain.  He gave me a blessing and in the blessing it said after a morning of rest I would feel better.  He took the kids to church and I rested and sure enough by noon the pain had subsided enough for us to go to my aunt and uncles for a swim party for Aunt Lila who turned 75 years old and a b-b-q!  I did not swim but I lasted the whole time without feeling overly sick!  I feel so thankful my hubby holds the priesthood and so thankful the pains have stopped!

Here is to a pain free - throw-up free week!  It is my baby's 8th birthday this week!

26 weeks! So excited!

Well I had a bad week end but have seemed to recover!  Here is a little update on pregnancy stuff:

  • Today's is my hubby's and mine 9 year Anniversary we went out for a really nice dinner and he told me, "I do not want to spend all this money if you can not keep it down!"  Well, I made it to the car, and across the street to the Wal-Mart parking tasted good going down at least!  He did not say how long I had to keep it down! 
  • Where we have dumpster divers (you know guys that come EVERY week and go through your trash)....last night the girls were watching them and the guy took my IV pole......My 8 year old  said, "His wife must throw-up all the time too!" HA HA HA!
  • The baby has been breach the whole pregnancy my other 3 were NEVER breach at any point and I have to tell you his legs on my pelvis is killing me.....I hope he knows he needs to turn in the next 12 weeks! 
  • I have never got a stretch mark with any of my kids!  Thank goodness they scare me to death, I know that sounds vein and horrible but I really do not want any!  Well I noticed 2 small ones on my hips!  I was devastated.........please no more baby!
  • I think since I am older and more mature with this baby I research things more, then I did with my other 3 kids I did the eye ointment, and vitamin K shot with them in the I have been researching it and I am not sure I want to do it with this baby.  It sure is stressing me out!  I just want to do what is right!
Thats my 26 week update, I would post pictures but I am TOO HUGE!  Sorry!

I finally slept all night through and did not wake up hugging the toilet!  So excited!  My hubby was so excited he WOKE me up because I was in the same position I was 12 hours ago and the channel on TV was on the same channel as when I fell asleep (that never happens.....I watch TV all night long when I can not sleep)!  Here is to a better day!

25 weeks and 2 days

Had anotherultrasound and doctors appointment last night, here is what we found out:

  • The baby's heart looked great!  No concerns!
  • My blood pressure was low 100/70...weird because I have been so busy!
  • My wrists are swollen....the doctor said to sleep with braces on my hand so i can not bend my wrists while I sleep.  I do not think i am going to give that a try!
  • I have gained 5 pounds since my starting weight.  He said other woman would be jealous, the problem is I was overweight when I got pregnant so it feels like I gained 25 pounds not 5 pounds!
  • I think i have decided not to do the glucose test
  • It is still a boy!
  • He is LARGE!  He is 2 inches above my belly button, and his butt is on my pelvis bone!  He is measuring 27 weeks +.......the doctor was shocked he seemed so big even when they measured my belly!  Something to keep an eye on.....maybe he will be an August baby!  I can tell you he feels big to me!  Little kicks are NOT so fun anymore!
  • Go back in 4 weeks then start every other week!
