Thanks Friends!

For putting up with and answering all my questions. : )

I was leaning toward not getting the optional tests, I just didn't want to do the wrong thing. Thanks for all of your answers. No matter what the results said we wouldn't do anything to end our very wanted pregnancy. So those tests wouldn't change anything for us either. I just didn't know if they really were something we should be doing, and since I have yet to talk to the Dr, I haven't really gotten any of my questions answered. Hopefully that will change on Monday, or I might just have to look for another OB.

Thank you all for being so helpful and supportive!

Prenatal testing.

The more I read the more confused I get!

The doctor's office sent me home with a sheet full of optional tests they offer, to decide if I want them, and a head full of questions about them and no one to answer them for me until next Monday. I have no idea how to choose. On the one hand I want to do everything in my power to make sure things are going good in there. On the other hand, I don't want un-needed testing.

Right now I'm trying to decide if the First Screening is a good idea, or if I need it. The deadline is drawing close to have this test and I can't seem to find any information that tells me if I need it. Did anyone else have it? If so, and its not to much to ask what made you decide to have it?

I want to have another ultrasound soon, I know most offices do one around 12 weeks (I'll be just over 13 at my next apt.) but the nurse didn't say anything about me having one then. She wasn't very helpful at all and I didn't get to ask any questions. So now I'm left wondering and waiting till Monday I guess. I sort of miss my Re's office, they always let me know what was going on, and answered my questions at least. *Sigh*

Bloggy stuff I should probably know... but I don't.

I have a couple of questions, and if anyone knows the answers that would be cool.

How do I know how many people look at my blog? I know how to see followers but I sorta want to know if there are other people you know?

Also, I've seen a few people refer to things people have searched and found their blog. I think it would be neat to know that, so how do I find that?

11 weeks and counting.

I had my first OB appointment today. I only saw the nurse. Hub and I were hoping to hear the baby's heartbeat, but all we got to do was answer about a million medical history questions, oh and I got my blood drawn. I was a little disappointed. I go back on the 1st and I actually get to see the doctor.

Things in pregnancy land are pretty much the same, with the exception of one new symptom. I get dizzy if I stand up too quickly. I'm sorta used to that though it happened alot in high school, because I'm so tall it takes a while for the blood to reach my brain... sorta like a giraffe. lol.

We managed to make our insanely high heat bill go down by 100 dollars. YAY! we put up plastic on most of our windows and hub used spray insulation on a few places, and he made a door like thing to keep the draft from coming out the chimney when we aren't using it. I was so happy that I screamed a little when I saw it.

Hub and I had a really nice Valentines day. We went about half an hour away to a big mall so I could have Chinese food for lunch. Then we walked around the mall, which was cool because it was mostly outlets, and I got to look at really cute baby things, and I got new shoes because mine were falling apart. Then we came back here and went out for Lebanese food for dinner. It was great. Hub got me an orchid plant and beautiful roses and a card that made me cry. He made me feel really special. It was nice because we have missed alot of valentines day's because Hub was underway.

I got an appointment!

It's next Tuesday. I'm excited and nervous. I know everything is okay, I don't know how I just know. I can feel my swollen uterus, every time I bend or shift I can feel it. It is a weird feeling that I am very glad to have.

It's been snowing here on and off since yesterday, I think we have about 6ish inches. I don't know for sure, because I haven't really been outside.

I called the insurance company about my referral to an OB. They never received one. So I called my doctors office and the girl who does referrals had the day off. So now I have to wait until tomorrow. I swear this should not be so hard. Why can't they send a referral right? At this rate I might be 12 weeks before I get to see the OB this is not ok with me at all. *sigh* I just want a doctor to poke at Baby S and tell me everything is fine. I know it most likely is, as my tummy is starting to poke out and I haven't had any signs that something is wrong but still I want the care I need and deserve.

10 Weeks and Counting.

Today my baby is a fetus, according to the baby book. I am so amazed that I made it here.

This week most of my symptoms have been here so long that I hardly notice them anymore. I'm really lucky, because I haven't been very sick at all, mostly just tired. I still have only gotten sick a couple of times, and it is always because I smell something awful, like the garbage can.

The constipation is getting a little better. I have no idea why that is. But I am very thankful for it.

I woke up this morning to Hub holding me and rubbing my belly, that's just starting to poke out. He kisses and talks to my belly. He's so happy. I feel so loved.

I need to start taking belly pictures. I want to have that to look back at later.

On another note, I went to work this morning and was told my services were no longer needed. I don't don't know why, I didn't do anything to deserve being fired, but I was. And you know what... I don't really care. I had decided to stop looking for a job because we found out I am pregnant, and this job called me that morning. We are fortunate enough not to need the money, because hub has a good job. But, I took it thinking it would be something I could do so I wouldn't be bored home alone all day. It was the most boring job I have ever had, and most of the people there were not good people, and were honestly pretty ignorant (the owner included.) Not a good quality in an accountant if you ask me. I was honestly counting the days till tax season was over so I could just be done with the job. So I will be taking care of the house and the dogs and the baby and Hub and me. I couldn't be happier about that. I just hope they don't hire someone else that really needs the job, and fire them 3 weeks later, because I get the impression that is what they do. The other receptionist constantly told me about people they fired, including one they fired for putting the toilet paper on backwards. (no I'm not kidding...) I hope they don't do that to someone who needs the job and has been out of work like a lot of people are here.
