Doctor's Visit

Well, the doctor's visit went fabulous. The very nice nurse weighed me on the not very nice scale!! Haha, in my doctor's words "That thing is evil. It is not your friend. You will see numbers you have never seen before and hope to never see again unless you are pregnant." haha, she is not concerned with weight gain at all. Whew!! It was about 6 pounds. I guess 6 pounds in the first trimester is not that bad, right? ;)
The very nice nurse poked on my tummy a bit and said okay, this is going to be cold, SQUIRT, then she found the heartbeat RIGHT OFF. It was awesome! I once again got chills and feel that I will everytime I hear it. I was so happy there wasn't any scare. I guess the little alien is still growing. I go back in 4 weeks, and then at 18 weeks have my big ultrasound which is when I guess she will run all the tests? So that will put us around the secondweek of December. :) Just to update everyone.. :)

New Hair!

These are actually horrible pictures, but you get the idea of the hair. The second picture it looks really plastered to my head, but I promise it doesn't look that bad in person. Haha, oh well, you get the idea...

waiting... waiting..

I'm sitting here, as patiently as possible, until my parents are home!!! Aaahhhh, I am leaving in about 10 minutes to go get them dinner and meet them at their house. I have missed them sooooo much!!

Soooo yesterday I went drastic! ;) My hair was about to the top of my shoulders, long enough to put it in a ponytail and blonde. Lots of blonde highlights. Today? Shorter than my chin and DARK brown!! I told my lady I wanted to be my natural color when my roots started to show so that it would all blend it. Weelll, it's darker than I imagined, but it does match my eyebrows!!! I absolutely love the cut, it fits me! ;) Now I feel like a runaway who had to change her appearence to protect her identity. LOL. I will have mom take pics tonight and will try to post them tomorrow or so.

I went to WalMart tonight and bought stuff to make stew. I've never made stew, so now I have all the ingredients and have no idea what to do with them. I'm sure I'll get some wonderful advice!

Tomorrow is my second doctor's visit. I can't wait to hear the heartbeat again. I HATE not feeling the baby yet and not hearing the HB often. It makes me feel, besides the constant late night crumminess, that nothing is going on. I also plan on buying a heartbeat dopplar thing off Ebay so I can hear it anytime I want! :)

Will keep everyone posted. I sure still need those GIRL vibes!!

Lots of love..

Pretty Quiet Week...

How your baby's growing:Your baby, just over 1 1/2 inches long and about the size of a fig, is now almost fully formed. Her hands will soon open and close into fists, tiny tooth buds are beginning to appear under her gums, and some of her bones are beginning to harden.She's already busy kicking and stretching, and her tiny movements are so effortless they look like water ballet. These movements will become more frequent as her body grows and becomes more developed and functional. You won't feel your baby's acrobatics for another month or two — nor will you notice the hiccupping that may be happening now that her diaphragm is forming.

I'm slacking, I'm sorry!!!

Haha... it is almost 11 weeks, but here is the 10 week update!! Truckin' right along!! Will write more later. Feeling great, sickness in the mornings mainly, but no barfin'!! :)

How your baby's growing:Though he's barely the size of a kumquat — a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom — and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs in his body rapidly grow and mature.He's swallowing fluid and kicking up a storm. Vital organs — including his kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver (now making red blood cells in place of the disappearing yolk sac) — are in place and starting to function, though they'll continue to develop throughout your pregnancy.If you could take a peek inside your womb, you'd spot minute details, like tiny nails forming on fingers and toes (no more webbing) and peach-fuzz hair beginning to grow on tender skin.In other developments: Your baby's limbs can bend now. His hands are flexed at the wrist and meet over his heart, and his feet may be long enough to meet in front of his body. The outline of his spine is clearly visible through translucent skin, and spinal nerves are beginning to stretch out from his spinal cord. Your baby's forehead temporarily bulges with his developing brain and sits very high on his head, which measures half the length of his body. From crown to rump, he's about 1 1/4 inches long. In the coming weeks, your baby will again double in size — to nearly 3 inches.

Sorry for not updating!!

Hey there!

So it is Sunday and A LOT has happened since the last time I blogged. My sister arrived here Wednesday night to keep me company throughout court and the weekend. In a rough run down, we have not eaten at home all week!! From Red Lobster, to Wendy's, to Sonic, to Pizza Hut, to Chili's, to Olive Garden, haha. It has been GREAT!

So court on Thursday... I didn't have to do much. Mr. Laywer took care of it all. DAH represented himself, and did a very good job at it actually. Long story short, after the judge crunched all the numbers, DAH has to pay for my car payment, car insurance, life insurance, and half of the mortgage. This will help me tremendously. He was not happy at all, as if I am just out to get him. I really didn't do anything spectacular to get his money, just did the same thing as him. Provided all the necessary documents. I just hope I don't have trouble getting the money from him each month.

Thursday night we went downtown to the Regatta festival. It was okay, but sneaking into the VIP section was even more fun!

Friday Andrea taught my class most of the day. Haha, she did a GREAT job but I have a feeling I am in for it next Friday!! (I will be in Texas, that's another blog another day). Then Friday night we went to Babies R Us and started a registry. Yeah, it is way too early, but my sis was here and we were bored, so why not! Haha, it was loads of fun.

Saturday we lounged around and went out to dinner and bowling with Rhonda for her birthday.

Then today we lounged around a bit more, went to Granny's for breakfast and she made me my very own pumpkin pie! :)

DAH came Sat. and tonight to get all of his stuff out of the shed, garage, and attic. I officially have my garage door opener back and feel relieved. The hard times are definitely still to come. I have been pretty sad and emotional today. I just wish I could see my future. I have come to realize though, DAH deserves someone who does not know his past and does not have to concerned about trust issues or anything else. He deserves someone who will love him unconditionally with no doubts. I need someone who I don't have to constantly worry about running out on me, and someone who will also love me unconditionally. Yes folks, it's going to be hard.

Pregnancy wise, I feel great. I hadn't gained much weight before Andrea got here, but not so sure anymore!!

Sorry for the looooong post, but here is the 9 week update! :)

How your baby's growing:Your new resident is nearly an inch long — about the size of a grape — and weighs just a fraction of an ounce. She's starting to look more and more human. Her essential body parts are accounted for, though they'll go through plenty of fine-tuning in the coming months. Other changes abound: Your baby's heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form — as do her tiny teeth. The embryonic "tail" is completely gone. Your baby's organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear. The external sex organs are there but won't be distinguishable as male or female for another few weeks. Her eyes are fully formed, but her eyelids are fused shut and won't open until 27 weeks. She has tiny earlobes, and her mouth, nose, and nostrils are more distinct. The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones. Now that your baby's basic physiology is in place, she's poised for rapid weight gain.

Fun in the Rain

We got a very nice relaxing rain last night. For some reason, I felt I needed to go walking in it. It was coming down pretty good, but not a down pour. Anyway, walked down to Rhonda's, and then we went walking. It felt good to be out. I don't really consider myself depressed or "holed up" in my house, but it did feel good to get out and talk. Found out DAH created a Myspace back in June. If you know anything about our relationship from the past, Myspace was completely off limits in our marriage. Well, guess he decided he wanted to end the marriage awhile ago. That had me fuming all night last night. And then some, excuse me, skanky fat girl commenting on his pictures, lol. Oh man, it's okay, just one more thing to keep me mad. I sent him a message telling him he better not EVER try to get back with me since he created a Myspace back in June. His response? "I made it to see if you would ever find it, I never used it". Hahahahaha, riiiiiiiight. What a jerk. Chalk one up to my list of "new husband" requirements.
Anyways, got the house cleaned last night. No more signs of DAH. I cleaned all the pee around the toilet he always seemed to miss. Cleaned up all his little hairs from shaving. Also spackled and painted the holes above the mantle from the Plasma. I felt much better. Was completely worn out from cleaning, but it looks and makes me feel better.
Today I need to be outside. My garden looks horrible. My tree is supposed to be turning a beautiful red and instead the leaves are turning black, so I watered it. I know, Mom, probably a little too late at this point. So now the garden is bogged down with black leaves and my Marigold heads need to be picked off. Blah, I don't feel like it though.

Well, enough from me today. Have a great Sunday everyone!

It's a Kidney Bean!!

How your baby's growing: Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your baby's hands and feet, his eyelids practically cover his eyes, breathing tubes extend from his throat to the branches of his developing lungs, and his "tail" is just about gone. In his brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. You may be daydreaming about your baby as one sex or the other, but the external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're having a boy or a girl. Either way, your baby — about the size of a kidney bean — is constantly moving and shifting, though you still can't feel it.

I'm Still Alive!

Hi there fellow readers. It has been awhile, but I am still here. Right now I'm crying because my mommy and daddy are leaving me! For 3 weeks they are going to be gone and it is going to be sooo hard. It's like my best friends are leaving. I know I have to be strong and they are going to have so much fun, but it doesn't make it any easier.
So, intuition tells me this baby may be a boy. As you all know, I really want a girl, but I'm feeling boy. Don't ask me what I am feeling either, because I couldn't tell you anything. Aparently DAH's Grandmother also had a dream I was pregnant and had a boy before she even knew I was pregnant. Aparently, like my aunt, she is never wrong when it comes to babies. Only time will tell and I suppose all I really want is a healthy and happy baby at the end of this long and healthy nine months. DAH expressed today to me that he is really excited to have a baby. Completely threw me off, but deep down inside I am extremely pleased. My child deserves a father and just as I deserve a baby, so does he. This baby was made with happiness and joy. I hope that is all it will ever know. I asked how much he wanted to be involved, and he said as much as possible. So we'll see. On the other hand, I will not allow myself to get let down. If I keep my standards low, he can't dissapoint me.
I also had a wonderful weekend with my sister. I miss you dearly! I wish she was so much closer, but I know she has her reasons and we still see each other often. Matter of fact, she will be here next weekend, and then I will be down there the weekend after that.
Well folks, that's all I've got! I guess tomorrow will be 8 weeks (wow!) so I'll have my weekly update then! Love to you all! :)
