update on baby...

This Tuesday I went to the doctor for a regular check-up. It was super quick, but everything was good. The doctor listened for the heart beat, and it took the doc almost five minutes to find the heartbeat. Although the heart beat was strong when found..(150), those five minutes seemed like an eternity for me. At the begining of the pregnancy, which was not expected, the pregnancy seem unreal. But when you hear the heartbeat, everything turns around, I was so relieved when the little beat, beat, beat was heard.
Another funny thing with pregnancy is what i eat. Tonight Joseph and I decided to just have sandwiches. Joseph wanted pb&j, and I wanted deviled egg. So i cooked up deviled egg, didn't put it on bread, and ate 5 pickles with meal I have had in a while.
Enough for now...desperate housewives is coming on soon......

my first 'bout of morning sickness....ugh

Not that anyone cares, but this morning i had my first experience in 12 weeks with morning sickness. I woke up, showered, and felt normal. On my way to work i realized i was getting a little queezy! I ate a banana, and that settled my stomach for all of 15 minutes! I was sitting in our morning meeting, when i started feeling it coming on...but nothing would come up. For about an hour i just dry-heaved (spelling??) and could not get anything up. I don't know about anyone else but i would rather get what needs to get out-out, rather than trying without any results. Finally my wonderful friend barbara gave me chicken noodle soup at 10:00 and it was a miracle worker. After I gobbled it down i felt so much better. The rest of the day was a little up and down....still gaging, with no results, but i can handle it. Hopefully i had my one experience, and that's enough. I realize I am just rambling, but it is 9:15 and Joseph isn't home someone needs to hear my worries and aches of the day....and you are the lucky winner!
Enough for now.....

and baby makes three...

Since I haven't been on here since June...there is alot to talk about, but it's about bed time so i will only tell the good stuff. On July 17 our little great life of just Joseph and i was completely turned upside down...there were two lines on the pregnancy test, and we were having a baby. All of the sudden every possible emotion you can think of went through my mind. i was excited..(we were having a baby, who wouldn't be?), i was scared...(Joseph and I could hardly take care of ourselves, and now we would be responsible for a child???), and so many other things. Over the next few days Joseph and i finally lost the deer caught in headlights look, and we knew we could take on the long as we did it together.
i really cannot complain. My pregnancy so far has been great. no morning sickness, no sickness really at all. i am just tired a lot, but I'm enjoying the sleeping while i can. we went to the doctor on august 27, and saw our little miracle on a screen. Even though the baby was hardly the size of a grape it stole mine and Joe's heart in a matter of seconds. The ultrasound tech told Joe and i that everything looked perfect, and i think we both breathed a sigh of relief that we had been holding in since that night of two lines!!
I still laugh when i think about having a baby. It was not planned(so much for the money i spent on birth control) and actually we were told we would have trouble getting pregnant. God laughed at what the doctor said, and he also laughed at our plans. Even though this wasn't the plan we had, it was God's plan...and it is perfect!
That's it for now...bed time!
