I think I misscalculated my due date…
I think I may be due April Fool’s Day!

I had a really hard time sleeping last night…I tossed and turned, absolutely no fun. I really think we need a bigger bed. I’m still sore and the nausea has gotten worse this morning…I guess it’s time for some breakfast and a vitamin.

Oh, did I mention that I bought some lotion for stretch marks? I’ve been putting it on every morning and night and I guess we’ll just see if it works.

Morning sickness is like this creepy monster that lives in your closet. One minute you think you’re fine and you can handle the nausea, the next minute your about to vomit all over everything…and yet somehow you maintain this constant hunger in your stomach.
We needed to go to Wal-Mart to pick up some groceries and so Clint stopped by Sonic to pick us up some lunch on the way there…and I wasn’t feeling to well at all, I thought I was going to vomit everywhere. I started tearing up because I really hate being sick with a passion and I was afraid if I talked I’d vomit everywhere. I hate a grilled cheese, french fries and a strawberry lime aid and so far I’ve kept everything down!

I took a nap this evening and it was so nice! I slept for about two hours. I woke up and my wonderful, super fabulous husband was making dinner. We had breakfast! While I thought it tasted so good and my dog took all my bacon and we had to make more, I am not sure how well it will stay with me.
Morning sickness is up and luckily my breasts don’t hurt half as had as they did yesterday.

Mommy doesn’t feel good.

We woke up a little late today but oh well, I wanted to sleep in anyway.
I am actually considering sleeping on the couch for a while, because our bed isn’t very comfy for me at all. The couch is more comfortable.
I have felt pretty good today, I think. I’ve been relaxing quite a bit because I’m a bit sore and my nausea isn’t my best friend…so hubby cooked dinner for me. 🙂
I took a nap for 2 hours too, it was so nice to be able to just sleep and have the whole bed to myself.

We woke up early today…to go to school and get some things done. I was NOT feeling like getting out of bed this morning. My I’m sore and I felt as though I was going to puke everywhere. But I haven’t vomited yet! So I reluctantly got out of bed and took a shower, shaved and dressed. I ate some breakfast and took my vitamins too. Walking around the campus on this very hot day is no fun at all.
I have discovered that my class shedule won’t be to bad as for as the physical walking part of it goes. We are going to get a bus pass so I can get shuttled from one section of campus to the other.
When we got home I relaxed on the couch for a while and then had a sandwich and some chips with juice. My plan to survive the semester is to keep food with me and a water bottle so I dont get dehydrated and will be able to knock back the nausea.
I want wait till I get into the doctor and get an accurate due date.. 🙂

So lately I have been feeling nauseated to the point I think I’m going to puke and never do.
We spent the day running around getting our car prepared and official in Virginia. We also turned in our application for Medicaid and should get a letter in a week or so. I really hope I get the letter soon, so I can be seen by a doctor and start prenatal care. Good thing I’m taking vitamins.

I think I am already going to have to buy some new pants and shirts to wear. The shirt I have on right now, has been riding up all day, and I have had to keep pulling it back down. My belly appears to be getting bigger too!

My mom knows I’m pregnant! I called her today to see what was up (not really planning on telling her I was pregnant) and out of the blue she says “Your Pregnant.” I said, ‘Yes, we found out Sunday”. So she and I talked about it a bit and she seems to be happy about it. 🙂

I’m what?!
This morning I took a home pregnancy test. I watched the dye go across the panel and I saw pink. The control line came up dark pink, and within 45 seconds the 2nd pink line showed up! I looked at in disbelief as I waited for the rest of the 3 minute time slot to pass…and started to cry. I couldn’t believe it!

I’m pregnant!

This is an unplanned pregnancy, but welcome. God has plans for us, and our baby too.


Pregnancy Reflections

First Month

I started thinking I might be pregnant when:
On July 23rd. I had a really funky metallic taste in my mouth, then it returned again on the following Monday, and has been coming off and on since. Not to mention the fact I was nauseated and really sore, so I began to wonder.
I found out I was pregnant when I:
Bought a pregnancy test, and waited two days to take it. I was really sore, and nauseous, and had gotten up twice in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. That isn’t like me, so when I finally got some decent sleep and awoke again, my husband went to walk our dog and I took the test.
I felt:
Shock and amazed! I couldn’t believe it…I never imagined that we’d get pregnant this soon in our new marriage…or anytime relatively soon after we’d decide to try for children, and there it was…a BIG FAT POSITIVE! I cried. I was happy, scared, anxious, you name it and I was feeling it!
The first person I told was:
My husband, and then the dog!
They reacted by:
Almost crying.
My baby will be born:
Estimated Due Date: April 1st or 6th 2008

more than likely at Lynchburg Baptist Hospital

The strangest symptom of pregnancy I had this month was:
Metallic taste in mouth, yuke!
My hopes:
To deliver to term a happy and healthy baby.
My fears:
That the first ultrasound won’t reveal a heartbeat.
