Okay, confession time, Jerry Springer style:
When Mom asks about Weight Watchers, I haven’t been going. When Rory asks why, I make up lies
(I’m running out of excuses! Ummm …. I had to wash my hair?)
When Mackenzie had her birthday party, it wasn’t Andy who didn’t want to go
(I didn’t think I could cover my tracks with “Jack and Coke” minus the “Jack” all night!)
When Carrie thought an email titled “Babies, Babies, Babies” might be to tell her exciting news, it wasn’t
(But it could have been)
When I had to take Carter to the allergist repeatedly to monitor her egg allergy progress, I was really going to see Dr. Hoight
(My doctor, to draw blood, compare levels and check out our status)
When Kelsey asks how things are going, I say “no new news”
Our confession: We are pregnant. 11 weeks, 4 days, or 12 weeks on Easter. We’ll have ourselves a Halloween baby, due October 25, 2009.
Things just feel different this time around. I’ve felt like I did with Carter: tired all of the time! I haven’t gone Fun-Onions crazy yet, which is a good thing. We’ve been eating well, in lieu of going to Weight Watchers, and I’ve gained about three pounds so far.
At week five (the last week of February), I went to our family doctor for blood work on Friday and then again Monday. All of my pregnancy determining levels were elevated, which was good. At week seven (mid-March), we went for our first ultra-sound. We heard one tiny little heart, beating at 140 beats per second. We have our official OB work up this Monday. But so far, so good, so keep praying for the best!
BIG SISTERS ROCK! Andy, Carter and I have talked about The Baby and what this means for her. We’d like her to be as involved as possible, so we asked her what she’d like to name The Baby. Her first choice: Princess!
Chalupa #2, also known as “Tad,” short for Tadpole right now. In the big black circle, Tad’s the itty, bitty little shape along the right wall (this was actual size at week 7). This is the ultra sound taken at 7 weeks (March 10, 2009), so Tad’s a little bigger now. More to come after Monday’s appointment.
Not much of a Baby-Bump yet, but I’m still on the look out for cute preggo clothes at discount!
