I have an appointment with my doctor on 9/16 so we might get lucky have be able to have an ultrasound and find out! I'm due March 19th. Our fav pic is first one. That's baby's little feet! Enjoy :)

Stupid STUPID receptionist

So today I went to my doctors ultrasound technician to have what else? My ultrasound. My original appointment was set up for 8/29 @ 9:45 but I had called on Monday and 'rescheduled' it for today at 11:45. Apparently the stupid girl didn't book me for that time.. So After I had been there for an hour I went up and asked if I was there at the right time. I got so mad! I started crying. The lady got all defensive, "I'm sorry.. It's not my fault" said in the most careless voice!!! Urgh... So I missed a whole bunch of work for nothing. And I still have to miss more work tomorrow! I guess it helps to know that James isn't frustrated and that he will actually get to go with me to see our baby tomorrow :) I think it's way way too early to kind out if were having a boy or girl, but I really hope we can find out so I can start buying stuff!! I want to start stocking up on diapers and bottles. I also made a baby registry at babies-r-us. Y'all can take a look see if you would like :)

And if that doesn't work just go to the babies-r-us website and my registry number is 96560513. I haven't added all the things I would like on there yet, but I will when I get more time and when I know what were having :)

I did it..

And got it over with. I bawled. and had to have James hold me the entire time. It's not like it hurts or anything. It's just absolutely disgusting.. :( But I did it and its over with. I'm home sick today. I've thrown up almost 3 times.. I'm on the verge again. I have my ultrasound tomorrow, so I will ask my doctor how the results are. So I've discovered my new best friend. A sports bra. I LOVE it! Wonderful :)

Appointment changed!

I changed my ultrasound appointment and I will have it on Thursday instead. Fridays time was a bit too early, and I probably would have missed the appointment. So It's on Thursday, which means I have one less day to go get my blood taken :( My Dr. appointment is on 9/16. I will definitely post after that because it will be my first time meeting with my actual doctor. Can you believe I've never met her?? Weird..

My appointment yesterday

Wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be... all because I talked the lady out of making me give blood.. BUT! I do have to have it done before I go in to see my doctor in 3 weeks. So she gave me the best option I think is out there. I have my paperwork, so all I need to do it wait for a certain bout of courage and I can go to the new hospital in the valley when ever I want. I was also told its ok to take half a xanax! That makes me so happy. Piece of cake.. Kind of. Anyways, So we heard the heartbeat. the little bugger was hiding behind my veins so it was kind of hard to hear over my heartbeat which was LOUD and FAST.. I was nervous.. I started crying when she was talking about taking blood.. Lame. But we heard it! And I am going in on Friday again to have an ultrasound so see exactly how far along I am. The doctor thinks I'm about 9-10 weeks. I was thinking I was 10-12, So I was waaay close!But.. She could be way off, hence the reason we're doing the ultrasound :) She told me to get LOTS and LOTS of protein and fiber. When you're pregnant, you GI tract slows 50%! Horrible, huh! She gave me the same prescription for my stomach meds, Zolfran, that I was taking before because it's awesome. She also gave me a prescription for Zoloft because I've been a bit depressed because of all the hormone changes. That should go away with the morning sickness all because my body will be getting used to the hormones. I also have a constant headache, that's because your body creates a whole bunch more blood for the baby. My doctor also gave me like 6 different kinds of vitamins with DHA to sample to see what one I like best. Have you seen those pills?!?!? They are freaking massive!!! They don't look like something you swallow... I was also given a bunch of magazines and informational papers on what I can and cant eat. I think that's about all the exciting things from my appointment. Right after mine I went with my friend Allyse to her appointment for the same reason as me because everyone bailed on her. She had an ultrasound! And she's only about 13 weeks but they already think its a boy! Well, they are 65% sure its a boy, but that's a GOOD percent! Alrighty, Here is a pic of my belly :) I can't do my pants up! I will scan a pic of my ultrasound when I get it next Friday. Did I miss anything you wanted to know about? Let me know! :)

I just thought I would post a blog about how utterly terrified I am about tomorrow! I told James yesterday that I'm really scared for it and he said there is NO reasons why they would absolutely have to take blood. So if I can get away with it, I am! Anyways... Here are the pics of my tests. Oh! I've been feeling little butterflies in my tummy. I thought it was just gas (I know! How disgusting!) But apparently its movement! So the first pic is obviously the first test I took. That led the taking a second test for assurance. And the third test was taken at IHC Instacare when I went in for my horrible morning sickness. The doctor walked in and said, "I'm terrible at breaking news.." and just handed me the test and said "Congratulations!" That was kinda awkward.. Lol!

So I decided that I would like to create a blog so all my friends can keep updated on my pregnancy :) So I had been feeling sick for about a week and a half and I kept asking people what they thought might be wrong with me. My mom suggested a few things. we thought it could have been salmonella, inner ear infection. but when she suggested that I could be pregnant I just pushed the thought aside for a few days. When I realized that I wasn't getting any better I decided it wouldn't be such a bad idea to at least get a test. That way I could rule out what was wrong with me. Well, July 31st I took the life-changing test. I took another test the next day, just to be sure. And sure enough! About a week later I had been so sick that I had to go to Instacare and get some thing to help my stomach! By this time I had already called my doctor and set up an appointment. But she's a really busy doctor so I have to wait till the 22nd (Which is this Friday!! :( I'm terrified.. They have to take blood!) So Instacare prescribed me Zofran, which is perfectly safe. It has helped, but it only does so much, I've been SO SO sick! There is no relief! Hopefully I only have about 2 weeks left of this. Morning sickness usually last from week 6 to week 12. So I've been sick for a little over 4 weeks now. Which would put me around 2 1/2 months, maybe even closer to 3 months. Anyways, I've found that ginger ale helps a lot! I also found some suckers called Preggie Pops that help. Pretty much anything sour that's not acidic is wonderful! I've also never really had any heartburn till now. That's probably because my esophagus is tired from throwing up all the time! Well, that's about all for now. I would tell you the names we have picked out, but they are secret for now!!!
I will update again on Friday!
