13 weeks

Today was my second doctor appointment with Dr. Skinny. Everything is looking good. I am going to start calling the phlembotomist Miss. Vampire as it seems like she took too much blood, where does it all come from? My next appointment is November 7th (I think I get a sonogram then) Dr. Skinny was really busy today and rushed in and out leaving me with questions. Is this a sign that maybe I should go to another doctor?

We have finally decided on a name for a girl and a name for a boy. M said we won't have to worry about a boy name because HE KNOWS its a girl.

I have already gotten some baby things, I know its early but I am a very prepared person and would go out of my mind if I hadn't had these things. So as of right now I have boxes piled in my living room that eventually need to be taken out and put together.

Its weird to say that I am in my 2nd trimester now. It has gone by so fast that its crazy. Its almost leaving my head spinning. I still remember the day I first found out I was pregnant and rushed to M's work to tell him.

11 weeks!

It seems like my stomach is already growing. Its weird how pregnancy effects your personality, emotions, and your physcial appearance. Its really quite a lot to take in all at once. I know have 30 more weeks to go. We told M's parents today they are really happy, this will be the first grandchild on his side of the family. I am starting to get over the morning sickness which is fine by me! I am really rather tired of running to the toilet all day (the person that first called it morning sickness should be shot its all-day sickness people). My next doctor appointment is October 11th. I have been on a KFC kick, not exactly a craving because I could live without it if I had to.

9 weeks!

First Doctor Appt 9 Weeks 1 Day

This morning I went to the doctor, M joined me. They first took me into the room to do a sonogram, I will post those as soon as M gets back home because he has to hook up the printer... Anyways, as soon as they get to where the baby is the baby is just moving around like no other, its really pretty amusing. Its like our little baby is a dancing machine haha! M gave the baby the name, little gummy bear hahah! Today the baby measure 24 mm which M says is about an inch long (I am horrible at math so I have no choice but to believe him). That is just totally amazing to me that you can see something that small.

Then we talked to the dr. her name will now be Dr. Iamtooskinny, she is really nice! She asked me if I had any questions which I didn't since I have been reading up the wazoo! She warned me about toxioplasmosis yes I know not to change the litter box, who said I did that even before I got pregnant? (Another not, after years of being a vet tech according to Dr. Google I am immune to it but I am not going to take the chance)

Anyways I will post the pictures sometime tonight for everyone to see! M is getting more excited now that he "can see there really is something in there" I thought that was really cute. Oh yeah and the babies heartrate is 172 which they said is really good, so yeah anyways, more later! I will post sonogram pictures for you.

Also one more thing my due date has been changed to April 18th right now... Okay yeah I think I am done for now haha!

 I am still trying to convince myself that yes I am pregnant and no this isn't some fantastic dream. I read that in these 8 weeks the baby already has eyelids, arm buds, and leg buds. Its amazing how fast they grow! My first OB/GYN appointment is tomorrow, I am pretty excited about it. I just really want to hear his/her heartbeat so I know that yes there really is something inside me growing!
 I have started to discuss baby names I know its early but hey, I am a first time mom! Can't decide on a girl name whatsoever so watch we will probably have a little girl and she will have no name. 
I know I am only 8 weeks pregnant but two of things MIGHT be going on (a) I am going crazy or (b) I am already gaining weight and my belly is already starting to show a little bit

**Update** I found out its (B) that yes I am starting to gain some weight and get a belly. I have gained 2 lbs. 3 oz. to be exact.**

I'm 18!

Today I have been on this earth for eighteen years. Looking back a lot of things have happened in my short little life. I was born to a seventeen year old that had other responsibilities. The people I call mom & dad where there from day 1 (the used to be my grandparents). They legally adopted me once I was four years old. I moved to a small town in Kansas and grew up there knowing everyone and them knowing me. I made a lot of stupid decisions in my teenage years and paid a lot on consequences but now I am on the right track. Just in the past year I have grown up a lot and I thank God everyday for molding me into the person I am today. If it wasn't for my family and my church family I have no idea where I would be!

Moving to Kansas City!

I did what I never thought I would do. I begun to move out of my parents house. As I made my trip to big city Kansas (a 2 1/2 hour drive) I reminisced about all my memories I have had with my parents by my side, there sure have been a lot of good times and bad times at my home. Now its time for me to move on to my new house and make it my home. One memory that sticks so vividly in my head right now is when I was packing up all my decorations of my room into a box and my mom just standing there... crying. It hurt so bad to pack up everything that I had accumulated over the years but I knew it was the right thing to do. It was time for me to begin my own life, begin my own family, and experience life. So here is to new beginnings!
