week 10

Ok So we went in for an ultra sound on "week 9" to find out that it is only week 8... Lame! So this is officially week 10 and the new due date is April 26th. We are really hoping that it comes earlier because then Parker will be on spring break instead of if it comes late then it will run into finals.

This week was AWFUL! Almost every year I come down with what I call the Mega Cold. It is not like a regular one that you feel bad but you make it through the day. No, not with Mega cold. I get asthma so bad that I can't breath along with all the other symptoms that seem to be way worse than normal. I have a fever that will come and go for about 4-5 days and I am completely knocked off my feet, completely miserable and useless. Not to mention the 4 boxes of tissues I go through. Then to finish it off I will have a terrible cough that hurts my lungs for about 2 weeks afterward. It sucks. Well, this time I was not allowed to take any "real" medicine because I am in my first trimester still. Everything says "may cause birth defects" or " may cause miscarriage". Everyone online said stuff like, " a couple days of suffering is worth it to have a healthy baby", and while I completely agree, they were not suffering from Mega Cold! So, have I complained enough? Do I sound like a pregnant woman? With that being said I am thankfully on to the hacking cough stage meaning I will only be in this state of misery for another week or two! And an honorable mention to my outstanding husband who took excellent care of me!

Next news. I am searching for a doctor and I am calling tomorrow to make an appointment (after I find them of course!) I am hoping they do another Ultrasound because I never posted picture from the other one because it is really to dark to see anything :(

We did see it really well on the monitor though. He/she is a squirmy little guy. It was super cute to see! The lady had to wait for it to stop moving around so she could measure it. They gave me a pin that I love, that shows how big your baby's feet are at 10 Weeks so this is the week! Here they are... So precious!

Week 9

This week was awesome! I never got sick and I don't think I took a nap this whole week! Not to say I haven't been way tired it's just better.

While all this is good news it kinda made me sad because today when I told someone at work that I was pregnant, it almost sounded weird. Like I almost forgot that I was pregnant because I hadn't thought about it much this week without the constant reminder of nausea and sleepiness.

I do have another Ultra sound this week. The first one they did was at 5 weeks and we really couldn't see anything but the sack. I am hoping this 9 week one will have more to say! I can't wait until it looks like a real baby. My cousin Rachel said her 9 week Ultrasound looked like a chicken nugget. So, we will have to wait and see! I will post pictures if I get them this time.

First 7 weeks!

I think that I am seriously lucky! I really haven't had all of the horrible side effects of pregnancy. All I have is extreme fatigue and I get a little nauseous after meals but for the most part it has been no problem!

I do take at least one nap a day. I usually wake up exhausted and I can't wait to get back into bed. It was ok at first but now it's just getting old! Luckily I have the best husband in the world who is very understanding because I am useless!

It is mostly smells that make me nauseous. I will be starving and then the smell of the meal makes me sick and I have to force myself to start eating it. I have discovered that if I keep sipping on Ginger Ale it helps a lot!

And I don't care what anyone says I can tell that I'm showing. I'll admit it's not a lot but it is enough to make all my clothes uncomfortable. So that's nice! I know I'm fat but it's different.

I am excited for all the different steps to come... really start showing, finding out what it is, feeling it kick and of course I really cant wait for him or her to get here!

Oh names... here are the names we are looking in to... We place a disclaimer that they could change at anytime... we still have 7 months to decide. As of right now if it's a boy we are sure that he will be named Patton Anthony Humes. and If it's a girl we can't stop arguing but we are thinking about the names Alice or Annie and middle names are still up for debate. I, of course, have the perfect middle names but Parker is a stinker and hates all names apparently. :) We are open to ideas but will have no problem telling you if we hate it! haha

Baby time!

I am super excited to be pregnant but now the REAL waiting game begins. I have been waiting almost 4 years for this so I feel totally ready minus the baby stuff I need to get. I won't get stuff til I know what it is though. I will find out in November. We are already battling out baby names. I go for my first ultrasound on the 25th. I will definitely post pictures!
