15 weeks & 3 Days...

Okay, so the picture is still not me, but I'm guessing that's what he looks like in there. :) My photo will soon come in another 3 weeks or so!! But on to good news updates...

Blood pressue is good!!

I only gained 2lbs in 2 weeks!! Whew... I think I held my breathe while I was on the scale! Lol....

And the best news of all!! Nice soild heartbeat!!! Even now, just hearing that sound is amazing!!! :)

So as my doctor said to me as we finished up, "Everything is ALL GOOD!" :)

Other than that... in a few more weeks and I'll know if all this praying for a boy has worked!! My poor baby boy. If he does NOT have a baby "brothur", he's going to be crushed! Just plain crushed!! He specifically asked God for a "baby brothur". So let's keep our fingers crossed!

Stay Blessed!!!

Good, Bad and Scary...

Although things did not happen in that order! Yesterday was my 13 week follow up exam. Can you believe how excited I was to FINALLY be able to hear the heartbeat for the first time?!

I checked in & had to face the dreaded scale - THE BAD!! 6lb gain in 3 weeks. What the heck?! Good thing I went to the grocery store over the weekend and stocked up on some healthy fruits and vegetables. Not to mention I've been guzzling water - trying not to retain TOO much fluid.

Next it was on to the exam room to chat with the doctor. I laid back in anticipation and waited to hear the thump... thump... thump... of that fast little heartbeat. Out came the Doppler AND.... nothing.... Absolutely nothing.... Just static for what seemed like forever - THE SCARY!!

My doctor wasn't too concerned. He sent me for an ultrasound right away. After being pumped with water (I had to have a full bladder), waiting for what seemed forever (I was a walk-in) and giving my husband a mini heart attack (since no cell phones allowed, I sent him a text message of what was going on) the results were in...

The baby is fine. The technician showed me the little body & fluttering heart - THE GOOD!!

Now if only I can explain these 6lbs?! I was told the little bugger weighs less than 1lb. Hmmm.... Guess I need to bump up those walking workouts!!! :)
Stay Blessed!!!

Been a while

It's been quite a while actually. Sometimes I even forget that I have this blog until I need something AND then I remember that I blogged about it. Lol...

The last blog was a review about the Left Behind Series. Let's see... I have since moved on to Book Three, which means I have some serious updating to do around my blog here. I wish I could have been done with the series, but have since found out some interesting news. It seems the hubby and I are expecting a new bundle of joy. Our estimated due date is the first week of November. Needless to say, it was a nice shock to my system. I was actually planning on being sexy, fit and fine this summer. :-) I had my bikini all planned out!! :-) Lol... Well, some good dreams do die out fast, don't they?! Any who, it seems like my skinny bikini will have to wait until summer of 2010. For now I'm concentrating on being healthy & fit and experiencing a good pregnancy.

Hopefully next time it won't take me so long to blog again. I mean, I did start this blog to get me writing again. Baby steps.... Where is Melissa and her writing club when you need her???

Stay Blessed!
