First OB appt

Went to my first OB appt yesterday. Took some blood and urine and got an exam. I think I could have seen it again but I stupidly told her that I just had an ultrasound on Friday, so she said we could use that at dating the pregnancy. So now I won't get to see it again for 3 more weeks. Ugh! the days are dragging on. I'm so ready to be out of the first trimester so I don't have to worry so much. I know anything can happen at any time but I will just feel so much better once I see it again and can move into the next trimester and tell everybody.

So far, being pregnant is not very fun. The only fun thing is realizing that I am pregnant and see it on the ultrasounds. Everyone says it will get better and I hope they are right. My back is killing me now.

New Bras

So I had to buy new bras already. Had to move up to the 38C. I would have taken a 40C but I couldn't find any. I just like to breathe and my 38B is not cutting it anymore. It seems early to move up in size already but in my family, that's the first thing to get huge. At least I can breathe today.

Seeing is believing

We got to see the baby again today. I am measuring at 8 weeks today and everything looks great. The heartbeat was 165, which the Dr. said was strong and the baby pretty much doubled in size. It was neat to see how much bigger it was than last time.

I still feel sick every day and my boobs are getting huge. At least to my standards.

We decided to tell more of our family today. I also told the Marketing and HR dept at work. That was nerve racking but it's done. Not sure how or when we will tell the rest of the world. We'll see.

Baby keep on growing beautiful, strong, and healthy.

So morning, afternoon and night sickness has set in. Mostly afternoon and night sickness. Haven't gotten sick yet just nauseaus all day. I have to talk myself into eating and what I'm gonna eat. Today my mantra was, I like chicken, I like chicken, as I made myself eat my lunch. Chicken is grossing me out lately but I love it, or at least I used to. I don't know what else to eat. I tried a cheeseburger yesterday which seemed to go down okay. The ginger ale seems to be working but the crackers don't cut it. Peanut butter seems to help too. I miss liking food and I'm only 7.5 weeks in. Hopefully I'll got off easy and this will be the worst of it.

What To Expect...

I bought the book What To Expect When You're Expecting yesterday. Goodness,that is a scary book. I want to be informed but some of that stuff maybe you should just find out as you go. I made the mistake of skipping some chapters and going right to the labor and delivery chapters. Big mistake, as if my stomach wasn't feeling upset enough, that almost made me hurl. I had to put it down and stop thinking about it. I read up until the 3 month, so I don't think I'm gonna read anymore until I'm there. No need to skip ahead anymore.

Better pics of our blueberry.
So, for the past 2 nights I've had some sort of chicken for dinner. Chicken with mushroom rice and then fired chicken from KFC. Both times I had to push the chicken aside and just eat the rice or mashed potatoes on my plate. My stomach is not having any of the chicken. Everyone knows that I'm a chicken girl. I eat it almost every day. What the heck am I gonna do if I can't eat chicken for the next 7.5 months? I love chicken, it's my go to meal. I hope it's just a 2 day faze or something. Nothing tastes the same anymore.

Positive thought: At least I'm not throwing up yet.

First picture

Blurry picture of our baby. The size of a blueberry. I am measuring 6 weeks and 3 days. We originally thought I was 7 weeks 1 day but he said I probably ovulated late. We heard the heartbeat and saw it flicker on the screen. Even Tony thought that was cool. I feel so much better now that we know it's in there growing and it has a strong heartbeat. I go back in about 10 days to get another ultrasound and then he will release me to my OB/GYN if everything looks good. So far so good though. Now we can breathe a sigh of relief but we've still got a long way to go. My new due date is September 5.

Told the family

So we told the family last Wednesday. I had gone out to look at wedding stuff with Karrie, my mom and Kristi earlier that day and it was so hard not to tell them, but Tony wanted the parents to find out at the same time. So we all went out to dinner and Carol and mom were talking about Karrie's wedding plans and I busted in saying: Karrie wants to have her wedding in July or August, and Carol is just shaking her head yes, yes, then I said, well that will be unfortunate for me bacause I will be about 7.5 months pregnant at that time. Carol was still shaking her head in agreement and she finally realized what I said and she screamed a little bit and my mom screamed a little bit and said really? I said yes and she squeezed the life and crying out of me. Everyone was in skock obviously since we were supposed to be on a break and we pretty much had no faith that we could do it on our own. Mike shook Tony's hand and Tony acted like the butthead he said he was gonna be. But I knew he was gonna act like a dork so I didn't care.

Then we went and told Kristi, Tony and Kylee. I asked Kristi if we could come over and give Kylee a belated Christmas gift. When we got there, I told Kylee we had one more gift for her and she was all excited. Then I told her that the gift isn't here yet and wouldn't be here for another 7.5 months. Kristi realized what I was talking about and about jumped for joy but I asked Kylee if she knew what would take 7.5 months to get here. She said no, and I said well do you know what takes 9 months to get here? Adn she got this big grin and said A BABY? And I said yes, and she jumped up and gave me a big hug.

I told my dad that night too and I got the response I prety much expected...I said happy new year and he said, yeah, it's been great so far. Then I said I'm pregnant and he said congratulations and then we pretty much hung up. Whatever. I did my duty and told him, I'm done going out of my way to tell him stuff. Not gonna stress over it.

Tony has gotten much better at accepting the reality of all this. We are both still in shock and a little bit of we will believe it when we see it. That will be on Tuesday, so it's getting closer.

I haven't really felt too bad so far. My boobs are killing me and I'm going to the bathroom much more now. I'm a little more tired but not that bad. No morning sickness yet, but it's still early. I've felt a little queasy but nothing bad at all.
