Here’s What I Have to Say:

8/3/10

I went on a walk around the neighborhood this morning (1/2 hour – about 1.6 miles). I was exhausted after my walk yesterday and I know I need to get back into walking as many days as possible again during the week to keep me feeling in shape! Week 14 starts today. I can't believe how quickly (and slowly) things are going. I know it will be no time at all before I get to meet this little bundle of... Read More Read More ...

Headed home and then the Feldhaus family brought us some very delicious cookies! It was so sweet of them! I felt like I had been sitting too long this weekend and needed to get out and move around, so I went on a nice hour walk around the neighborhood. It was a bit hot out, but it felt so good to get out and move around a bit! We also went to a neighbor's/friend's house for dinner and a birthday... Read More Read More ...

Hung out at the cabin and went on a walk with Trisha in the morning before more people got up to the cabin. It was a nice relaxing day! ...

7/30/10

Sent a big email out to family to tell them about the baby! Everyone was so excited. We included one of the pictures from the 12 week u/s, too. We headed up to our friend's cabin for the weekend and got to tell more of our friends in person. Everyone is so happy for us and I truly feel blessed to have such great friends and family. ...

Today might have been even more amazing than the first ultra sound. We got to see the baby again in all sorts of positions and it's really getting bigger. The coolest part was how much it was moving around in there! I can't believe how much it moves in there and you can't feel any of that movement. The baby was about 6cm or 2.5 inches (crown to rump length). I think it was only a little over 2cm the... Read More Read More ...

I have been pretty bad about writing in here. I guess I should get better! πŸ™‚ I have been feeling well (with yesterday/last night being an exception.) But I feel much better today. So I am happy about that. I am just ending week 10. I can't believe how much time has passed since I first found out. But I thought this week would never get here! Now I am waiting for my next appointment on July 29th! The weekend... Read More Read More ...

7/2/10

OH MY GOODNESS! This was the coolest day EVER! We got to see the baby and the heart beat (179 bpm) and it had arms and legs and it was so cute! I can't wait for the next appointment. Then you can see it even better and it should be able to do somersaults by then! What an amazing experience! And they did keep my due date of February 8, 2010…at least for now. I guess these things are always... Read More Read More ...

Today I went in for my first appointment. It wasn't too bad. Some blood here, pee in a cup there. Then we talked to the nurse and she wants to do a “dating” ultrasound tomorrow to check my due date. This was because I got pregnant so quickly after being off the pill. So I will be back tomorrow! ...

6/9/10

Slept pretty well last night. Got up this morning and went on a short walk. It was about a 1/2 hour. We're going to the prenatal “class” tonight, so I knew we wouldn't get in any time for a walk tonight. ...

6/8/10

Nothing real exciting for the day. After dinner we went on a bike ride. It was pretty long! I was very tired from the bike ride. But it was a lovely night for it. ...

6/7/10

I am happy to say that I slept through the night last night! I actually felt refreshed when I woke up! It was wonderful. Of course, as soon as I got to work I started yawning. πŸ™‚ I need to seriously do some things around the house this weekend…for instance, put away laundry that's been clean and sitting out for DAYS! Assuming I don't fall asleep immediately when I get home, this may actually happen! The day at work went... Read More Read More ...

I went on a long walk this morning. Here is my route. I walked a little slower this time. I think the distance was close to the same as on 6/3, but I walked for about 51 minutes. This could have been because I stopped a couple times to take pictures of things. πŸ™‚ Chuck played soccer today and I got in a couple 5 minute naps. ...

6/5/10

I went walking/shopping with Brooke all day for things for her shower. Then I met Chuck to look at some cars. We watched a movie (which I barely stayed awake for) and got pizza. I was surprisingly not very hungry. ...

6/4/10

I was exhausted this morning. My body hurts from walking and my back is really sore today. I feel like I could sleep for a week. I need to do some things around the house tonight and I hope I can find the energy to do them! Of course…that didn't happen. I hung out on the porch with Chuck for a while and then we went to the neighbors' house to hang out and then went to DQ. It was... Read More Read More ...

6/3/10

I woke up and went for a nice, long 45 minute walk. Here's the path I took. It was so nice to get up and get some fresh air in the morning. I also called and made my first doctor appointment this morning…July 1st. Next Wednesday is a prenatal class where they answer questions before your first appointment. Chuck even said he would go with me. πŸ™‚ I am going to dinner tonight with a couple friends. One of them... Read More Read More ...

6/2/10

I got through another day. Chuck and I went on a nice walk after dinner. I am going to try to get out and walk when I can. I am a little weary about running. I wouldn't want running to harm anything. So walking (at an upbeat pace) is my compromise. I found out some of the things I need to stay away from: * No lunch meat * No soft cheeses (brie, feta, goat cheese, blue cheese) * Some...

Anxiously waiting for this day to be over since it's the day I am supposed to get/miss my period. I woke up twice last night to go to the bathroom. I learned that the beginning of your pregnancy you go to the bathroom a lot because your kidneys are in overdrive cleaning out your body. I have started drinking LOTS of water. And I am really going to try to get more healthy variety in my diet. I am noticeably... Read More Read More ...

I woke up and immediately checked the test again because I thought maybe I imagined it. Nope. Still pregnant. πŸ™‚ Another best friend came over that day and I told her. She was SO excited. She was the first one in our group to get pregnant. And she was glad I had now joined her! I also calculated my due date. February 8th. And learned a little about the whole due date process. Apparently you count from your last period.... Read More Read More ...

5/30/10

Took the other expired test…just to check, of course. Pregnant! So I emailed my best friend (AKA my on-call nurse since she's on number 3 herself). She was sure I was pregnant and told me to go out THAT MINUTE and get another test. I managed to wait until 10 at night when we went shopping. So near 11pm I took the non-expired test. Pregnant! So I was legitimately excited! And allowed to be! My only worry then was that... Read More Read More ...

5/29/10

I took a pregnancy test today that I had on hand. It expired in March, but instead of just throwing it away, I thought I would take one and see what it said. Pregnant! But I was hesitant to get excited about it since it was expired. From what I read online, though, expired ones can give false negatives, but don't usually give false positives. So I freaked out the rest of the night. ...
