So Far So Good

I had my first Ob appointment today. It went really well. Except for the fact that both the girls were in the room with me while I had my exam, including breasts! Not that they've never seen their mom naked. Because I'm naked a lot around the house. No biggie here. It's just their not use to me with my legs up in the air with a man hiding between them. They stayed at the other end of the room and I made Hailee read Gianna a story. I just told Hailee they were checking out my belly to see if the baby was ok. She was fine with it and didn't see anything. Usually I would have had a sitter but. Everyone was busy. My hubby was in a meeting downtown. Mom was working, MIL was with my FIL(He just had surgery), friends of family were at a playgroup in Pennsylvania and other friends with out kids were working. Anyhoo, I've had my blood drawn twice so far to check levels and everything seems to look good. I go back in two weeks and before that I'll get a ultrasound. My boobs hurt, I'm a little nauseated during the day, I'm tired and GASSY. I don't mind because I know it's good that I'm having symptoms. The cramping isn't so bad either. Did I mention that I was gassy? Got my vitamins with the added fish oil capsules too. I'm going to try to take them at night so I don't feel like hurling during the day :o) I'm glad to join you other pregnant mamas out there. Exciting.

Well got to give the girls a bath we just got finished swimming at a friends house and I can't wait to crawl into that bed. My poor husband is probably lonely at night because I'm ready for bed at 8:00. I just ate a huge plate of pasta bruschetta after vowing not to gain 60lbs this time around. I think I can do it. 60lbs is too hard on your body after labor. Not to mention too hard to take off the second time around. I can't imagine how long it will take me the third!

Good, good, good! Glad to hear you feel yucky, uh, even if that means you feel yucky. At least you can still eat!

You're pregnant! Get out of here! :D WOW :) CONGRATS KELLI! :)

I'm so glad it's going well so far!

As for having kids in the exam room - thank God I'm not the only one! ... I don't have a babysitter - have never used a non- family member. So if I have an appointment during the day and my husband is working and my Mom can't watch them - I have to bring the kids with me.

Some doctors act like they are REALLY uncomfortable with having the kids there - and I agree it's not an ideal situation - but sometimes it's really unavoidable, (and it's not like the nurses ever volunteer to babysit for a few minutes.) LOL.

OH WOW!! Happy pregnancy!! I am sooo excited for you!! yes, some premenstrual-type cramping is normal in the beginning, simply because your uterus is growing once again...however you'll probably "show" faster for that very reason (your uterus remembers!)

I will keep my fingers crossed (and my toes) that all will continue to go well and that soon you'll be hugging the porcelain goddess EVERY MORNING for the next 6-8 weeks!!!

Have I mentioned that I'm gassy too? At least you get to blame it on a baby...
